Giveaway Monday 3/25/13

During our sketch-a-thon, one of the design team members hosted a fun kit swap! Everyone who signed up was sent an address to send a kit to; items just put together from your stash. You were to send at least three pieces of patterned papers and 4 or 5 embellishments. I missed out on this last time.  All of the members seemed to love it so I was sure not to miss the opportunity this time!! I anxiously awaited for my "surprise" kit to arrive and was happy to see that the lovely Jennifer had gotten my name. Here is what she sent to me...





At first I was stumped but after playing around, this is what I came up with...


I wish that I would have taken a picture of the back side of the papers because that is what I ended up using mostly. I cut the word "me" out of the remember title and misted the brown felt ribbon black to match my page. This was so much fun!! For our giveaway this week, I am going to make a surprise kit for the winner!! For your chance to be the lucky recipient,  leave me a comment on this post letting me know if you have ever participated in a kit swap before. We are thinking of having them on the message board every other month or so! Would you play along?? I will draw for a winner next week!
Last week's winner is...

  4. Love what you did with your kit. I was lucky enough to participate in the kit swap and it was a blast. Lori sent me a really great kit and I had a really fun time creating with it. It was nice to try something you might not have chosen and love the results!

  6. That layout is awesome! No, I've never done a kit swap. It sounds like it would be so much fun! I wouldn't participate because of the cost of shipping, but now I'm inspired to try something like this with local scrapping friends.

  11. A kit swap sounds like an awesome idea. I have participated in card kit swaps but not layouts.

  12. this is great! I host a ugly card kit swap on a forum every few months...its call the ugly swap..so you send your partner some items from your stash that you think are 'ugly' and they have to create a card using these items..its usually a few sheets of paper and some embellishments...the uglier the better and even better that they don't match at all :)
    your layout turned out really great!

  18. I have never participated in a kit swap before, but that sounds like such a cool idea! Great way to get rid of stuff you're not using and give it to someone else who may be able to use it.

  22. I have never participated in a kit swap, in fact I never heard of it. It would be tough for me because I only scrap a few colors and themes.
