Its Blog Candy Time!!!

Edited to add: I'm keeping this at the top, but I do have new posts down below :)

Hi all! Well, I'm a total slacker and have yet to give away any of my own blog candy. I thought it was about high time that I did so. I've passed my one year blogaversary (it was back in late January) so I can't really use that... my birthday isn't until April... I'm not pregnant... I haven't won any awards... or the lotto... so this candy is just a way to say THANK YOU.

You read it all the time, but its true. I am thankful for all the visitors that come whether you comment or not. I have honestly met many, many wonderful people all over the world through my crafting/blogging. When I get free time and can travel, I'll be ringing you up (hehe).

So here it is. It is really a hodge podge of goodies... some I've had and never got around to using and hopefully somebody out there will... some are duplicates... some I purchased on clearance or with a coupon... some were even gifts to me... (don't worry, I'm not offending anyone, I promise) either way, I hope whoever wins can put it to good use.

Here's a break down of the items you could win:

  • Inkadinkadoo Cupcake Clear Stamp Set
  • Clear Dollar Stamps December Stamp of the Month
  • Scenic Route Clear Stamp Sets: Party Time and Stars
  • Studio G Clear $ stamp set
  • Rub ons
  • Assortment of Crocheted Flowers made lovingly my very own Mother in Law
  • Heidi Swap Silk Flowers
  • Daisy D Silk Flowers Assortment
  • Close to my Heart Brass Stencil
  • Copic Markers: BG10 (Cool Shadow), RV42 (Salmon Pink), 000 (Colorless Blender),
  • B32 (Pale Blue), V09 (Violet)
  • Making Memories Charmed Phrases (Wedding themed)
  • Making Memories Pewter Frame
  • Making Memories Frame and Baby Themed Embellishments
  • Making Memories Signage Embellishments
  • Hello Kitty Sizzlets Die (Summer theme)
  • Clear Dollar Stamps Acrylic Sliders
  • Craft Mate Embellishment Holder (I LOVE, LOVE these)
  • Ribbon Spools from Michaels (Sheer pink polka dot and Sheer Green Polka dot)
  • American Crafts Ribbon (celebrate printed on it)

How to win?

Just leave me any old comment you would like. The point is to just to comment... tell me about yourself, or your favorite stamping technique, why you come to visit my blog, or if its your first time here, your favorite ice cream, anything will go.

I'm going to keep this post up through the weekend so... I guess that it means I'll draw a name next Monday (March 9th) in the AM.
Any and all are welcome to enter.

Oh and remember to leave an e-mail address or some way to reach you.

Have fun and good luck!

I crafted as long as I remember myself, I adore to create, but I opened scrapbooking for myself regards to my newborn daughter, I liked to embellish her sweet photos. I’ve discovered the world of scrapbooking about a year ago. Wow, how can I live withought it? But the journey across the blogs even scare me sometimes: I realize that my life is too short to embody all the inspirational ideas…
I'm a newby in "real" scrapbooking (I made a digital ones for a pretty long time and now would like to get some new experience so began to scrap in “reality”).
Here in Russia it's pretty hard to find scrapbooking suppliers so I was very surprised to find out a magic thing called “blog candy”. Yours are just marvelous! Fantastic!
I believe in miracles as strong as my little daughter :) so I believe I’ll win a candy one perfect day.

Good luck to you in all of your undertakings!

Good morning Katie! I surfed on your blog one day and fell in love with your style so I added you to my Blog Reader and have been a loyal reader ever since.

I am a card crafter who's world has gotten a bit shaken up, so I don't get the chance to craft as much as I would like. Hopefully this weekend will give me some time to craft :)

Hello there, I'm a SU demonstrator from Michigan and love your blog. I subscribe to it and love getting the email with your new creation, quite inspiring.

I LOVE hodgepodges... and I would be glad to help you out! My favorite ice cream is butter pecan, which I almost never eat because I share a home with a nut allergy person. Thanks for sharing your ideas and your stash.

WOW! What a stash! I enjoy reading your blog. You have so many wonderful ideas. I really like making boxes, cards, basically things I can give to friends/family. If you ever come to Southern California, give me a call!

Yours is the first blog I check when I log on in the evenings. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your stuff. Thanks for all the inspiration! Oh, and the tip you gave me about tying bows is GENIOUS!!

Janene said...

Hi Katie...I LOVE reading your blog and getting new ideas. You were actually the one who got me hooked on nestibilities (I love them, thank you). I am also a CTMH consultant (jr consultant nowadays) and I love seeing you use our stamps. Let's see...anything else...my favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip, but I am bound and determined to lose some weight so it is nonfat frozen yogurt for me lately. Ok, enough of my rambling. Have a fabulous day and thank you for the opportunity to win some yummy candy.

Tracey said...

Ink, paper and BLING! said...

Katie,
I read your blog with great regularity. I come for inspiration. I enjoy your write up s in the craft critique. And I am a mother of twins also; so I find it very interesting when you bring your boys up.
Mine are only 19 months and into everything but nice to know what is coming!
I know you mention your twin group every once in a while. I live in White Rock, BC on the border so not too far from you. If there is anyone in your group with twins near my age I would love a chance to meet with your group. I have yet to find anyone.

Any old comment huh? Well, my fave technique is colouring with Copics. I have two great kids, am a SAHM and used to be an RN but I can't practice because I have lupus! Hope that is newsy enough! Thanks for the chance to win!

milkshake007 said...

Congrats on your blogaversary and an early Happy Birthday!

You have so many wonderful ideas and I thank you for sharing your talent!

Mary K said...

Hi Katie! First off I have to tell you that your sugar cookie recipe is the best I've ever made--the icing too.

You're one of my favorite blogs when I have time to visit.

KATY826 said...

Found your blog through the PTI forum. How generous you are! That's a lot to give away! Thanks for the chance to win. :)

Stampin' Pam said...

Hi Katie - This is my first visit to your blog but it won't be my last! I love what I'm seeing on your blog. I have been stamping for about 4 years now but really started to take off with it after going on the Stampin Cruise with Gina K Designs, Papertrey Ink and Stampin Bella in October. Now I"m trying challenges, reading blogs and started my very own blog just a month ago. LOVE IT. Happy stamping!

Pam said...

Hi Katie...I've had your blog bookmarked for some time now! I just hope you took all of the calories out that candy!!!

I would love for you to visit my blog some time too!

Lorie said...

Hi Katie! I'm new to your blog but I like what I see and will be subscribing! I really appreciate your kind comment on my blog! Have a super weekend!

Jak Heath said...

I don't normally enter blog Candy but I really fancy a chance at winning some stamps that has been your choice katie, I love to pop onto your blog and I have you in my google reader so I try to catch up with what you are doing as and when I get the chance.
Anyway my favorite style of stamping is inking with a dye ink then spritzing it with water so that when it is stamped it looks hand painted.

Conquest Keepsakes said...

Well you know you can come to the big MO and stay with us and the cats, and then maybe I'll have someone to play with and use up my "collection" of stuff. (hehe) I think I managed to get rid of some of my stash at the crop today...wish you had been there, it was a real hoot! ~Vicki C.

Nina said...

Wow, what a great blog and what great blog candy! this is my first time here and I found your through the clear dollar stamp store... which I just found today too!! So I would say blog hopping is certainly a GOOD thing. I love to stamp and love love love to hear emboss. I have been looking at investing is some copics and so I have blog hopping checking things like that out, but I certainly like what I see, but don't really know much about them. SO, needless to say I will be back and heaven knows I spend way too much time here is cyber space, I think if I spent more time crafting vs. hopping through space I would get double the amount done!! LOL... crossing my fingers for some blog candy, can't wait to see who the lucky winner will be!! Thanks for sharing your talents!

Nina said...

OH... and happy anniversary, happy birthday early and happy new arrival of baby when it arrives!! hehehehe

Nina said...

LOL.. you are NOT preggo.. LOL.. so disregard the baby thingie.. LOL.. and you should have an award.. LOL.. maybe I will make you one and come back with it next week! hehehe...

Monica said...

Aww Katie this is super sweet of you! That Blog candy sure looks YUMMY! Some awsome prodfucts in there for sure!!

I spent a long time lurking, then ventured out to posting, and finally got the guts to start one of my own. I love seeing all the great and inspiring creations that so many people post. And I'm finding some pretty awesome stuff right here too! I'm off to look at some more! :>

Katarina said...

Thank you so much for offering this candy. I haven't visited your blog before.

I want to tell you that I'm really glad today because I managed to get up some shelves in my hobbycorner today. It was really hard because of the quality of the wall, but in the end it got done. And it looks so good. Now I have small jars with flowers and small stuff, stuffed animals, some of my art. It looks so proffesional, lol. I always wanted it to look like this and I'm so happy I finally got it.
