Fabscraps

It's been 4 weeks since my last post - what can I say..... February was SO busy, I barely had time to go grocery shopping!  March is turning out to be almost as busy......  It's National Craft Month, St. Patrick's day is on the 17th, March 21st is the first day of Spring and it's Easter Sunday on the 31st!  It's also that horrible month when we turn the clocks forward and lose an hour!  On the "Good News" front, DCC has a fabulous giveaway (details below) and a challenge hop showcasing product from Buttons Galore which starts on March 9th...

Many of our DCC bloggers are also members of the Smoothfoam Creativity team and their projects are being featured every day during the month of March on the Smoothfoam blog!  There's a giveaway there too - $100 worth of Smoothfoam product - so be sure to check it out.

Now, here are the details on the DCC giveaway:  You may remember that at the end of the last show on Scrapbook Soup series 100, I showed a fabulous "purse" album from Fabscraps.  You can view the video here: http://youtu.be/-OZjx6Yhmg0   

 

Our viewers just loved it, so we've put together a very special giveaway - ALL the product you will need to make this adorable album, including the flowers.


One lucky winner will receive everything pictured above:  album, papers, paper roses pad, tags and even adhesive.  To enter to win, hop through the DCC blogs and leave a comment on the blogs featuring your favorite technique, or a technique you can't wait to try, then let me know which ones they are by commenting here on my blog.  I'll be picking a winner at the end of March, so don't forget to check back.  Good Luck! 

Yours truly,
Julie :)

KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON CRAFTING!

  2. My favorite technique was Cindi Bisson's Floating Chalk Background technique. I've been around a while and I've never heard of this one!!! Plus, it will be so much fun to do. If I win (Oh, I hope so!!!), you can find me at http://blog.mydapperdog.com/

    1. There is a blue Designer Crafts Connection logo in the sidebar on the left of my blog. Click "hop forward" and it will take you to the next blog in our ring. Each blogger in our group has this logo, so keep hopping forward and you will eventually come back here. Most of the DCC logos are near the top in everyone's sidebar, but some are kinda far down, so keep looking and enjoying all the posts on your journey! Enjoy!

    Stunning is certainly the word. I live in an area with limited access to scrapbooking stores so this collection/company is only one I can "drool" over online. When I do get to other stores farther award, I can't always get certain collections there. Don't get me wrong, these stores that are not close to me are fabulous and I love them, but once again they too are limited in what they can have. So unless I get to a LARGE metropolis, buy online (if Canadian) or WIN this collection, I can continue to drool........
