So 2 giveaways to celebrate The Creative Place's 1 year birthday :)

1st giveaway: Your choice - a Found Paper Scrap Pack or a Custom Made-for-You Art journal - you pick the color scheme! Art journals are 5”x7” bound with metal book rings. These super fun journals have a variety of vintage and “found” papers and envelopes and are embellished with buttons, tags, and paper rounds. Just add your own pictures, mementos, and journaling details! Great for storing thoughts, ideas and inspiration. To get an idea of what the insides look like, go here.


2nd Giveaway: A Huge Stash of Fabric Remnants from different craft projects - but still plenty big to work with - over 35 different patterns/pieces. I did a similar giveaway in the past and it was such a huge hit, that I'm doing it again! :) Included are some fabrics by: Moda, Heidi Grace, Alexander Henry, Donna Wilder, Michael Miller and Debbie Mumm... and also a bunch of generic scraps. Some fabrics have been prewashed and dried, some have not. (Please note that the picture is from the earlier giveaway... (ahem! ;) I wanted to get this post up) and some fabrics may not be exact, but you will of course get a lovely variety of colors and patterns. :)

To enter: Leave a comment by Tuesday morning (April 6). A winner for each giveaway will be chosen and posted Tuesday morning. In your comment, tell me which item you would like to win and what you plan on doing with it if you win :) Also include your email address so I can contact you if you win. International comments are welcome! :)

To increase your chance of winning: You can leave TWO additional comments if you become a follower of The Creative Place or if you are already a follower or subscribe.

To also increase your chance of winning: You can leave ONE additional comment each time if you:
+ Blog about the giveaway with a link to this post (feel free to use the picture from this post)
+ Facebook about the giveaway with a link to this post
+ Twitter about the giveaway with a link to this post

Thanks for playing along :)

Also, today is Good Friday - a day that has great significance to me as a follower of Jesus Christ. I'll be doing a special post on Easter Sunday :)

  3. what an amazing giveaway! I am already a follower. I would love the found scrap pack.....they made such interesting addons to the page. I will blog about this later and post the link here

    ReplyDelete
  4. Ok so, I have reposted on my blog and it is scheduled for about 3 in the morning my time so US browsers will see it in the evening time!!

    I would love either of the swaps!! I really am so impressed with the craftsman ship in your journals and i love vintage epherma. I use notebooks like that for inspirational journals to store photos and ideas :)

    With the fabric stock i would use in scrapbooking or for making cushions or embroidery :) I can send u links tomorrow xoxo

  5. Happy 1st Birthday!! I am a somewhat recent reader and I have fallen in love with your blog! I love days that you post about paper and paper goods. I am a lover of paper and journals as well!

    I would love the custom made journal but I recently borrowed a sewing machine with the intention of covering some pillow and making those fabric post cards you wrote about. So, I would have to say that I would like to win the fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'd love to win the paper. I have enough fabric to keep me happy for awhile, but I drool over papers.

  7. I'm not "allowed" to purchase new fabric until my pile has gone down... but winning is totally legal! :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Oh man how fun!! I would love to enter for the fabric. I just got a baby sewing book and plan to make lots of projects (and your fabric alphabet, too!) for lots of friends. A stack of fabric bits like that would be so perfect - especially for the alphabet project!

    And I'm a follower of your blog so I'll post the other two a little later I suppose :) And I'm also a follower of Jesus Christ, so Happy Easter! AND I went to JMU, did you go there? Your pictures look super familiar!

  9. I'd love to receive the paper package. Not that I cannot use the fabric -- LOVE fabric -- but I own a quit shop so, um, rollin' in the stuff. :)

    I'd likely keep a special journal (have several choices - travels coming up or maybe samples from the Paintstick class I just registered to take online:)

  82. Oh my....I would really love either of these giveaways!! I have recently moved to Germany and there are NO CRAFT STORES HERE....so I have to order everything and wait a month to get it. Seriously. I have sooooo many projects that I have been wanting to do, with my new sewing machine I got for my birthday and with the Cricut that I got for Christmas (I know...Im spoiled!)...but I'm really limited on what I can do because I have such a hard time getting supplies.

    Btw, thanks for doing such an awesome giveaway!! I'm just so excited at the chance to win these awesome prizes!!!

  97. My daughter just got a sewing machine for her birthday. We have already fixed a few things around the house. Some scrap fabric would come in handy. I am sure they are beautiful and we can find some fun things to do with them over the summer as we both learn.
