To show my appreciation for ALL of your warm words, thoughtful comments & support, I put together a lil' gift give away. It is sooo rewarding for me to see the smile on a family member, a friend or a co-worker's face when I give them a Cupcake Creation such as a handstamped card, custom gift bag accompanied with a special tag or something as simple as an altered tin with Tic-Tac's inside! :) The support & comments from you girls is the ICING & SPRINKLES on my Cupcake's :) Here are the details if you would like to win what you see: (1 pack Making Memories crystal brads, 1 Studio G Cupcake rubber stamp, 1 Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF, 1 Hero Arts Cupcake Stamp set & the Heartfelt Thanks tag & unsigned card:) ) Just leave a comment on THIS post telling me what favorite papercrafting products you couldn't live without & why you enjoy creating?

Only one entry per person please.

Contest will close Wednesday, July 22 at 9 pm MST. Winner will be chosen using a random # generator.

Winner will be announced no later than Thursday, July 23 at 9 pm MST. Good Luck! :)

For this tag & card my color inspiration came from Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge 12 & the sketch inspiration came from this week's Splitcoast's Sketch Challenge 237, SC237. If you haven't already been to either of these sites, you should take time to visit & see all the amazing creations!

Shana said...

Your card and tag are beautiful - as always. I should know, I'm getting a lovely collection of your tags. I have them displayed around my kitchen and in my craft room. I just had a thought that they would be really cute Christmas ornaments. :)

My favorite papercrafting products? Judging by the collection I have amassed I would say that it is the accessories - brads, eyelets, metal pieces. They are all fun and add so much to projects. My favorite thing about creating my little scrapbooks is looking back at them every once in a while and seeing the pictures and knowing that someday my boys will look at them and see the love with which they were created. Well, that's just my hope, anyway. They are boys after all. :)

Anita said...

Hi I just found your blog, and it was a joy to check it out for the first time. Lovely cards, lovely blog.

I couldn't live without ribbon, the soft stuff, the fun stuff, the elegant stuff, the kiddie stuff, it adds such a wonderful element to a card.

Julie Ranae said...

Fabulous, fabulous...totally worth the wait!
I have two comments to make...
I am with your other blogger Winter...I can't live without ribbon...ribbon...ribbon!

And I am totally jealous of Shana...I would LOVE to see my room decorated with your tags! ; )

I couldn't live without ribbon and buttons. They add so much to a card!

Helen F. said...

Your card and tag are just so beautiful. I love how you combined and used Dawn's colors.
As for my "couldn't live without" craft item ~ it has to be my Cuttlebug, I can't stop using it on every card, envelope, tags, small gift bags and whatever I can squish into the slot! :O) Thanks for the chance to win.

Andrea Lombard said...

Mona, I couldn't live without my paper cutter and my Bazzill cardstock!
This card is terrific with those cute buttons and crocheted flowers! You always put the colors together so nicely! Does this stuff just "come to" you?
Thanks for having this giveaway!

Great design on ALL your creations. I am floored by your blogsite. Just amazing! Everything! I love designing and creating because I love turning different raw products into something beautiful! With paper crafting you can take various things as you have done with this card (buttons, ribbon, crocheted flowers) and create a beautiful keepsake!

Shantina said...

Mona, I love all of your cards. Your cards are so exquisite. I like to use embossing powders and Cuttlebug's embossing folders. After a long day of work, I like to unwind by creating something special for someone else to enjoy.

Yolanda said...

Hi Mona, I love this card! It's so soft and beautiful! Nice mix of textures! Do you ever make anything that isn't perfect? My simple response to your question is that I paper craft because it relaxes me! Nothing else does a better job for me! Thanks for letting us play!

Very stunning card! I could not live without ribbon, it adds so much to any project. I enjoy creating as it is a way to relax and I love to give my projects away as gifts. It bring such joy in the excitement that people get when given a paper craft that has been homemade.

Magnificent card and tag! You just know how to create such beautiful, contemporary things! I could not be without my Cricut. I use it almost as much as I use my stamp pads! I hope I win, wish me luck!

Mary Reidel said...

Gorgeous! I'm out of words to keep describing your wonderful creations. I just can't "see" to put things together as well as you can. What a talent!
I love to scrap because it relaxes my mind and if my creation turns out good, it makes me feel happy!

WOW, your creations are all gorgeous; I've never been to your blog before & now realize we live "close"! I clicked on your name because many years ago in the Midwest I had a huge crush on a guy with your same last name! He'd be way older than you, however!!! LOL! My latest fav products are Spellbinders' dies & I papercraft for pleasure & to stretch my limited talents!

Nancy L. said...

Wow, your project is amazing! Very beautiful! Thanks for the chance to win!

Mo Hernandez said...

Your designs are really beautiful! I love both and love all your cool textures! I could never do without all my dies; I use them everyday!

Hi Mona! Great designs again and again and again... Well, you get the picture! I always love looking at your creations! Always, beautiful! I love paper crafting because it is a relatively inexpensive creative outlet for me. It keeps me sane! Thanks for the give-a-way!

Wow, what a generous giveaway! I love crafting because it gives you the opportunity to give somebody something truly personal! I love using pretty brads and my new flower punch is very cool too! Thanks for the opportunity to win. Love Jane x

Mirna said...

Greeeeaaaat project! I just love your colors and layering! You are the master at this! Great inspiration. I too could not do without my Cricut Expressions! I use it on almost every project! I would love to see some more CupCakes' videos as well! Thanks for the giveaway!

Isabel Jett said...

Beautiful card and tag, Mona! And congrats for achieving 103 followers! You blog is soooooo sweet that you have to check it out weekly! I love it! Thanks for having the giveaway, wish me luck!

overthekitchencounter.com said...

I love my cricut and couldn't live without it! Good for all my different paper crafts!

Karen said...

Mona, I just love your card with all its different flowers, buttons, layers, and dots, oh my! And you tag really makes that great candle latern quite special! (Can I ask where you bought it?)

Hmmmmmmmm........favorite crafting supply.................that's REALLY hard to just pick one! There of course are the basic tools. I love ribbon, use it a lot. I ADORE buttons, but need to learn to actually use them more, rather than just admire them. But, I suppose my favorite would have to be my inks. I have A LOT of them and am always looking at new colors...just love them so! And I create because it is the best stress reliever that I know! Getting inky, playing with paint, seeing my completed creation, all make me smile. And even better, when sharing them with this amazing crafting community, I get to 'meet' so many other people who share that same love! :>

BetsyK said...

Wow, I want to win just so I can have your beautiful Tag and Card! How do you keep making such perfect things? I gotta win!!! My most cherished tool would definitely be my Cricut Expressions as well. I don't know how I lived without it before! Thanks!

Ginger said...

Great set once again, Mona! Your choices are always spot on! I love it! I find cardmaking so incredibly relaxing and then the finished product (assuming it turns out nicely) so gratifying! Thanks!

Jen Johnson said...

Wow, 103 followers! So commercial sites don't have those kind of numbers! People obviously love your designs! Hey design teams, sign this lady up!
Thanks for including us in this celebration! I love scrapin' because it's the perfect creative outlet for me and wonderful relaxation tool. I tend to be a bit hyper but not during or after a good scraping session!
Hugs,
Jen

Penny said...

Hi, I really love all your creations! Your design style always catches my "eye". This card and tag are excellent. I would love to win this givaway just to have these two items. Have you ever considered selling some of your stuff? I'd be first in line. Thanks!

JennyGerber said...
