Spotlight & Giveaway with Crafty Secrets: Part 1 {CLOSED}

Congrats to Debbie! Enjoy your goodies! :) Thanks for playing everyone. We'll be hosting another one next month, so come back for more soon.



I used to work for a scrapbook company designing paper and products, but I rarely had the chance to play with the products once they were created. So I was super excited when our sponsor, Crafty Secrets, contacted us to review their paper arts products. I was happy to have an excuse to make something by hand! And I knew the perfect project. I wanted to make a Travel Journal for my mom for Mother's Day.

I was able to try out Crafty Secrets Creative Scraps (in Travel, Wonderland, and Vintage Photos), their amazing clear stamps, and their Girlfriends Image & Journal Notes pad, all from their Heartwarming Vintage Collection. Readers, you all are going to love their products! Super quality, each page is jam-packed with designs, and they sent me enough product to GIVE SOME AWAY! So keep scrolling to find out what you can win, and see how my creation turned out...

I used the Travel set, as well as some of the journaling cards from Vintage Photos, as well as the travel stamps. I am so happy with how it turned out! I made sure to include pages to store ticket stubs and other  small details:

And now for the giveaway! One lucky winner will receive everything you see below to create your own beautiful, crafty creations! That's three full sheets (which are actually 2 double sided pages a piece) of their Crafty Secrets Creative Scraps (in Travel, Wonderland, and Vintage Photos), their amazing clear stamps, and their Girlfriends Image & Journal Notes pad.


Giveaway Rules:
One chance: Leave us a comment with your name and email address.
Second change: Visit Crafty Secrets, HERE. (Hint: Click on "shop now.") Then come back and tell us your favorite product.
Third chance: Become a follower of the Guidebook and let us know it!

Giveaway ENDS Friday, May 6th at midnight PST. Winner will be announced Saturday May 7th, and winner will be contacted via email. 

GUESS WHAT?! We have another batch of fabulous products to giveaway from Crafty Secrets. Sarah will be posting another project next month. So if you don't win this time, play again soon! :)
