February RAK {The Good Old Days} Double-Points Day Today Only!

***By double-points I mean that anyone who comments on this blog post TODAY by midnight EST (providing they are also a follower) has double-the-chance of winning this RAK because I will enter your name TWICE - comprende?!**

If you are over-stashed, like me, you can still enter & if you win I can send the kit to a different postal address as a surprise for a friend - anywhere in the world :)

I had such fun putting this give-away together that it got me thinking maybe I would make up some kits...What do you think??  Anyone be interested in purchasing them if the price was right? (locals only probably as postage costs would be prohibitive for internationals - bearing in mind that most of this is older stash...)

I am loving sharing my excess with my followers!  I called this one "The Good Old Days"  Most of the stuff is home-themed, with lots of metal, vintage findings & blues & yellow/oranges....
There's a wack of stuff in this one - these gorgeous floral buttons, assorted metal brads (spirals, hearts, etc), 3D floral swirly stickers, epoxy sentiments, home-themed stickers...metal dragonflies, coins & vintage findings of all descriptions...

A brand new Creative Memories concertina photo holder, 7 Gypsies stickers, Vintage Scenic Route sentiments, mini-papers....
A My Mind's Eye title card, Maya Road tiny ticket album (chipboard), frames, Making Memories metal words & Karen Foster metal/resin embellishments.

Lots of interesting bits & bobs here...stars, buttons, buckles, metal filigree embellies, wax seals...
Yummo!  Makes me wanna keep the stuff :)

Ribbon, hearts, numbers, metal butterflies, corners, filigree squares, bingo cards, giant playing cards, mini playing cards, a whole sheet of journaling stickers....phew...and even a brand new roll of film to pull out & use on your layouts T!m Holtz style :)
Okay so I admit I got a little carried away taking photos & all...

Have camera - will snap...
I've pledged to have a give-away each month all year long.  High time I purged my stash as I'm into year 7 of scrapping now & have a much firmer idea these days of what my style is & what I love to use on my pages.

Isn't that focus splendid?  Ooops, sorry, I digress...

Yeah, so, you know the drill...

Leave me a comment (become a follower first if you aren't one already) then wait & see!  All things being equal I will draw my February winner in a week.  Entries close midnight EST on Thursday 24th February.

Internationals welcome.  Come One Come All.

Shayne said...

LOL girls! The magnitude of the stash I regularly use is not so great now that I have narrowed down my taste & found some direction, however, the magnitude of my stash that I've had forever & a day is pretty overwhelming :-) Yes Stef that was the idea {to remind the Saffers of Clicks LOL - Double-Points Day :)} Stef there's quite a bit of football going on right now (Uefa Champions League, etc) so the focus is a bit split right now but with Jack in the A team this year there is certainly a lot of anticipation...Shayne I am tired of spending more time sorting supplies than actually using them - now I want to give back (to thank the Lord for blessing us with our long-awaited house) & my long-awaited studio space. By the end of the year I am aiming to have a much more directional stash supply, an easier to handle storage area & some new followers, who I can only hope I can keep interested & loyal. Chelsea is doing so well. She is handling everything marvellously & so maturely. Finally I am seeing the fruit of my efforts really coming in to play after all these years - she is their youngest signing & swimming along...very proud mumma I am! Welcome Amber. It is my son Reilly's birthday soon so he will be doing the drawing this month (will photograph him fishing a name out of one of our fruit bowls lol...)

Wow Helen, I have missed you and when I come to leave a comment you are on fire, good for you girl. Amazing stuff in this gorgeous huge rak. I agree, with the bad floods over here, it is so nice to give back to others. I cannot wait to see your studio space also and I know exactly what you mean re: narrowing down your taste, although I think for me I still change so often. Love to you Melxx

topkatnz said...

That sure is a lot of goodies there! I know what you mean about a much more specific stash supply. I have limited space, and limited needs - and I still have too much!!LOL
