Giveaway time once again...

Yep... I'm squeezing in one more April giveaway. to celebrate 6 years of blogging.   And this one is filled with Crafty Secrets goodies. I certainly couldn't celebrate without them!  As most of you know, Crafty Secrets has been a huge part of my "creative" world for some time now.  I've been lucky enough to work with them for many years now. (I'd have to really give it some thought...but ..more then 10 years).   So this giveaway has bunches of Crafty Secrets goodies for  you to play with.  Three sheets of Creative Scraps, a sheet of cuts, a sheet of stickers, a Sweet Chips Chipboard house, Sweet Chips chipboard pieces, a Wood File Folder Album, and a "Get Creative" idea book.  And so you can start creating right away, I added some ribbons, tags, and embellishments.


All you have to do to be entered is leave a comment in this post between today and Friday May 4.  It's that easy!
I'll announce the winner of all these goodies on Friday.


I thought I'd just go through  my picture files and show you a few ideas for things you can do with some of these products.   Yes, they are great for card making and scrapbooking , but  they can be used for lots of things beside that.  I made these refrigerator magnets using some of the fun retro images and these big bottle caps.


I have found so many awesome charms that are big enough to put these images in, just in the jewelry isle of Hobby Lobby.  All different shapes and sizes. I'm sure most any Craft store that has a jewelry making dept will have them.


And here's some done with slide holders.


This bracelet was fun and inexpensive to make.  I found the bracelet at Hobby Lobby (their jewelry stuff goes on sale 1/2 off quite often), added my images and then a coat of Diamond Glaze.  I used the images from the Mini Vintage Creative Scraps for the bracelet.


Fancy Pants Designs Artist Edition Metal Frames work fantastic!


With these  Embossed Chipboard frames  you can put two together back to back , for double sided framed pieces. 



I'll be sharing other Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage projects this week, but so you don't miss anything from CS, be sure to subscribe to  the Heartwarming Vintage blog,( there is a link on the right sidebar of their blog),  and you can also follow them on facebook :)

Right now Sandy has a free Mothers Day printable box to share HERE


*************************************************************************



 I had a great time "junk'n" with my sis this weekend.   I have some fun photos to share in my next post :)   Oh.. and show you the goodies I found~



I'll be back soon.  Off to edit photos from yesterday.

Ellen Jarvis said...

Oh Vicki, you have been an inspiration since I've found you not too long ago. You are a blessing to this little crafty world of mine! I love all of the back projects you've posted to show us more about Crafty Secrets and how to use them. But you didn't post the one picture that inspired me to become a customer of Crafty Secrets, and that would be those luscious moss-filled soup ladles. Mmm, mmm!! I have several fussy-cut little babies all cut out ready for their perch as soon as I can find just the right spoon. Wish I had someone to go junk'n with -- if you're ever this way (PA), please let's go junk'n!!

Fondly,
