A weekend giveaway . . .

For the digital scrapbookers in the house!

This giveaway is for another amazing installment in the monthly Project 365 kits from Crystal Wilkerson. If your’re just joining us here at and this is your first Crystal Wilkerson giveaway- let me just tell you… These kits are huge. And awesome. And huge!!! There are tons of papers, tons of elements, brushes, borders, templates galore… just lots and lots of digital scrapbooking goodies! Much more than what would come in your average kit. These are MEGA MONSTER kits if you will! ;)

And every new design Crystal comes out with is my new absolute favorite. :) Not only are these kits huge and awesome, but I also think they’re great for beginners- especially if you’ve never digitally scrapbooked before. Crystal has awesome tutorials on her site to help you make your first page! And you don’t even need the full version of Photoshop, you can also use Elements. :) And … (as you can see on my blog :D) her kits make awesome blog layouts! So if you’ve been thinking of giving your blog a makeover… go ahead and enter! You might just win the perfect kit to do it with!

So! What kit are we giving away this month? Wellll…. There are TWO kits! And that means there will be TWO winners for this giveaway! :)

The first winner will get Crystal’s August 2009 Collection– the entire collection! This is just a few of the elements from the collection- the full kit includes much more! Check out all the pieces in her store.

The second winner will get Crystal’s brand new, not even released yet, September 2009 collection. This kit is so brand-sprankin’ new, I can only post this one, teeny tiny, sneak preview teaser!

    I have just found this blog, and have decided..
    1. I am hopelessly lost in dream land, seeing such awesome displays of scrapbooking ideas, though I have never had the finances to begin this hobby. I am going to see what stuff I have here at home, though.. because you inspired me to at least begin. Thank you!
    2. I am hopelessly lost in thought about what possibilities there are to use scrap booking ideas in my quilting projects.. seesm you have alot of colorful ideas in your projects, and I am going to break out of my mold in quilting, and start using bright and funky designs/ colors.. Thank you .. I hope I am blesed by your giveaway, but even if I am not, I am blessed to think outside the box, and begin a new hobby in scrapbooking design .. and in how I can incorporate it into quilting design.. Blessings!
