I Think Is About Time We Gave Away Some Stuff- Bloghoppin’ With The Nook $150 Grand Prize

  • March 23, 2012 3:33 am

Winners have been announced!  Check it out at the Nook Blog!

Welcome to the Nook bloghop!  I’m the last blog in the line-up, so I’m going to keep my post short and sweet, and down to brass tacks.

Today we’re giving away $150 worth of new scrapbooking goodies- paper, flowers, thickers, stickers, ribbon and more -OH YES-MORE!  These will come from a variety of beautiful companies like Petaloo and American Crafts and Cosmo Cricket and My Mind’s Eye and Crate Paper. Many items will be hot off the presses from the latest CHA and many will be perennial favorites and classic embellishments.

Interested? Want an entry? It’s simple.

Anyone can enter.  Drop me a comment down there in the comment box.

Feel like two entries might be more helpful? Click that like button at the bottom of this post and share it on facebook, or link to it from your blog and leave me another comment.

And if I happen to be the first blog you’ve stopped by that’s talking about this hop- well, the beginning can be found at the Nook Blog, and there are FIVE other prizes hidden along the list of blogs you will find there!

If you love to scrapbook, you will love checking out the talent on these blogs. And if you love to scrap- then you will also love the beautiful kits I put together for My Scrapbook Nook kits!  Go check them out, and send yourself a little present every month with a subscription.  We have just a few March kits left (featured above).  Anyone who joins now will get a grab bag that coordinates with the upcoming April kit (featuring Story Teller by Crate-pictures coming very soon!)- and that grab bag is worth $55!  Grab bags are also available for our subscribers every month at a dramatically discounted rate.  This one is going for $10- but they are very limited, and sell out quickly!

If you think you might want a place on the Nook’s design team- then be sure to check out this post on the message board for more information on our up-coming DT call!

This card was made with a past kit from the Nook- one of my old favorites being shared again, since I haven’t done anything too creative lately.  Hope you like it!

This bloghop starts Friday morning and closes on Wednesday evening, so hurry quick and get your entries in!
