My March Giveaway is Finally here! And AT LAST my February Giveaway winners!!






Hi Everyone :)  Well I don't have anything new to share with you today because what I have created can't be revealed yet, but it will be soon so don't worry!  I do have good news for you though because I have a great giveaway for you at last!  I've been collecting bits and pieces locally over the last few weeks & have a few imported items thrown in too.  I hope you like it!!


I don't have access to inexpensive scrappy goodies in this part of the world, everything here equates to about double the price of overseas & even if I import it myself shipping adds 50% onto the cost.  I am good at hunting down suitable products though that work for scrapbooking, even though they are not officially 'scrapbooking products' & they do make for eclectic creations :)


This gorgeous metal picture frame was bought especially for you & is really pretty!  The flowers are painted with pearly paint & the whole thing glitters from all that bling!  It really is the pièce de résistance of this giveaway & I want to keep it for myself LOL But I really WANT to have a giveaway to say THANK YOU to you all for so faithfully supporting me for +4 years now...


There is also a  hand-made keyring in there (see the flowers above) made by me of course, some ornate chipboard bookplates (above right), a GOLD paint dabber from Ranger (oooh la la) - some glitter ribbon in gold AND silver and some organza polka dot ribbon with metallic dots in GOLD and SILVER (so 4 metres in total) that will quite possibly make you hyperventilate!!  


There is also a teeny packet of gold powder that is VERY SPECIAL.  It is an industrial product and is CONCENTRATED GOLD PIGMENT.  Just a tiny bit is needed to bring a shine to any medium & this little packet will last you a long time.  (Scroll up to see it). 


There are 2 rounds of decorative stick pins (flowers & leaves) which are great for tucking in to clusters, aswell as 2 packs of pearly hat pins, in white & multicolours.  SIX packs of sequins & FIVE packs of seed beads for sprinkling on your pages ala our friend Erin Blegen!


THREE packs of brightly coloured guinea fowl feathers, a GOLD inkpad (be still my beating heart) & METALLIC TWINE.  I know right ??!!  And did you see the metal clock charms?  Oh. My. Word.  And a little roll of gold wire.  Whoever wins this kit is going to have ALOTTA FUN!! And OF COURSE I will ship anywhere in the world, so all you need to do is... 



1.  LEAVE A COMMENT letting me know what new CHA products you have bought!!
  
2.  Join as a follower if you are not already

3.  OPTIONAL - spread the word for an extra chance to win.  Either on your blog or Facebook! 

Remember to leave ANOTHER comment if you do this, with a link to your post/status so that I don't forget to count you twice!  


This giveaway will end on the 31st March, with the winner announced soon after.  Now, onto the winners of my February giveaway.  Local winner is Bernadine Weppelman!  Congrats Bernie!!  I already have your postal details & will be sending your 'My Prima Place' book along to you soon...

 My International winner is Keren Tamir!!  Congrats Keren, you have won a $10 voucher to the C'est Magnifique store (and I have lost my voucher code along with my hard-drive crash, but I will e mail Leslie & retrieve it for you LOL).  

Have a great week friends :)

Helen you are always so generous. As you say its very expensive for us South Africans to buy from overseas, so I have not purchased any CHA products, but do love the product. I have posted a photo of your wonderful give away on my Facebook Wall with a link to your blog.

Hello from sunny but cold (-25'C) Finland! Thanks for the chance to win that fabulous candy. Hopefully lady Fortuna will pick me :)

I have not purchased any CHA products. When crafting with student budget ...well, I guess you know what I mean.

Hugs, Eemeli

oh Helen, what a nice collection! There is nothing wrong with a little outta the box thinking when it comes to scrappy supplies...not like I've used a feather plant stick on a project recently! As soon as they get some back in stock, I'll hoard you a couple too! I agree that frame is ROCK STAR QUALITY!! ;-)

Lynette said...

Awesome giveaway Helen.

I have banned myself from buying new CHA goodies. I would love the new Teresa Collins Memories range and the My Minds Eye Notable range...but I have to work at getting my stash smaller this year.

yyam said...

What a fabulous giveaway Helen! I am lucky to have a LSS that stocks the latest scrapbooking products but I actually love eclectic finds a lot more than the mass produced ones.
I have been good and have not bought any new CHA stuff...YET.*lol*

Jessica said...

Gorgeous giveaway! Unfortunately, I have not been able to purchase anything lately, but I have drooled over all the new fabulous Prima products!

LOVED this past CHA!! I have gotten some of the Maggie Holmes collection by Crate. Some new Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, and Studio Calico Sundrifter. And of course...all the new Glitz & Prima!!

What an awesome giveaway...LOVE the sequins!! Thanks for the chance!

Christy said...

Oh wow...this is so super duper awesome! What a fabby giveaway! Every single one I could find is probably the wrong answer to your question huh? I seriously raided Archivers and my local scrappy store for just about all the lines they received after CHA, but my fave is probably the new My Minds Eye.

Lena Demyanyuk said...

OMG, this candy is so YUMMY. I'm a full time RN-student, and I honestly don't have time to scrapbook. But anyway, I went and purchased a heat gun and some embossing powder the other day, and now I just can't wait to get my hands on it.

Vicky Varvadouka said...
