Giveaway time!

Time’s Up! We have our winners! :)

Each month here at we’ve been giving away the latest digital scrapbooking kit from the Creativty by Crystal Project 365 line. Crystal comes out with a new, ultra, mega-packed jumbo kit every month- a drool-worthy occasion for all digital scrapbooking enthusiasts to be sure. And because I think Crystal’s kits were monumentally helpful back when I was just a nervous little thing, first learning about the massive world of digital scrapbooking, and because Crystal is so talented and generous…

We want to give you a chance to win that kit! :)

This month… I’m a little behind. *blush*

I skipped October. Crystal’s already ready to give away her November kit, and I skipped October.

Now we have been doing this every month so you think I would’ve gotten my act together by now.

But don’t worry. I’ll make it up to you. :)

This month, we’ll be having a giveaway for the October AND November kits! :) And since I was a little late…

Let’s have TWO winners for the October kit and TWO winners for the November kit! :) What do you think? Want to see what you’re playing for? :)

Here’s a preview of the October Spooky & Sweet Collection:

October 2009 Kit

See what I meant by JUMBO kit?? :)

Yes- you get ALL that!! :) Check it out closer at Crystal’s store to see what all you could be winning! :)

And the November kit?? Well, I can only show you a teensy-weensy *super secret sneak peek* of the November kit. ;)

Here is a tiny sample of the huge November paper pack…

November 2009 Kit

And okay… *whispers* Want a sneek peek of some of the elements in the November kit?? *looks around*

Check out these layouts :)

November Kit Layouts

So that’s a pretty sweet giveaway right! :)

But wait.

There’s more.

Remember the last Creativity by Crystal giveaway? We broke a giveaway record here on with over 400 entries! Those 400 entries practically *doubled* the amount of entries we’d ever had on a giveaway here! And since ya’ll doubled the entries, we doubled the prizes for that giveaway. :)

So. Do ya’ll want to see if you can do that again?? ;)

If this giveaway gets more than 800 comments

We’ll double the prizes- again!!! :)

There will be 4 winners for the October kit and 4 winners for the November kit!! That’s a total of 8 possible winners!!! :)

So how can we make sure there are over 800 entries?? Well, I’m glad you asked. :)

You can get another entry if you post about this giveaway on your blog and you can get another entry if you tweet about it on Twitter! :) Just leave your second (or third!) comment with a link to your blog post or tweet.

Now normally you may not be so inclined to get MORE people to enter a giveaway right?? I mean, more entries = less chance I have to win! That’s just common sense right there, right!

But here’s why you’ll want to refer as many people as possible.

If someone *you* referred is randomly selected to win… You will ALSO automatically win!! :) So when you post about it, make sure they know to say you referred them when they enter! :)


(I know. Can you believe it? There’s still more. We’re not done yet. ;))

There will be one GRAND PRIZE winner. :) The person who refers the MOST people will win a copy of BOTH kits.

Wow! This is crazy- I think this is the most outrageous giveaway we’ve had on here yet!

Time’s Up! We have our winners! :)

-To be entered to win this giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post! :)

-To get a second or third entry, make a blog post or tweet about this giveaway and leave a link to your blog or tweet in the second or third comment (be sure to do separate comments so you get your multiple entries! :)).

If someone referred you to this giveaway, please leave their blog address or twitter name in your comment! :)

-This giveaway will run until 11:59 pm central time, Sunday, November 8th.

Whew!! Was that like the longest post ever or what?? If you made it this far… Thanks so much for looking and GOOD LUCK!!! :)

P.S. Want another chance to win Crystal’s November kit? She’s running a giveaway on her blog right now- go on enter there too! :) AND… If we can get Crystal’s followers on Blogger up to 200 by the end of the month… She’ll make a FREE mini kit!! Just for us!! So go ahead and follow… You’ll be glad you did.

    Well, I’ve been having a look at your website and I have to confess that I got charmed with your taste for decoration, and your house seems to be really cosy! By the way, Úrsula insists on me to take a photograph course, and having watched your photographs I’m afraid she’s right!!

    These kits are gorgeous and I think this would be a great help to me also since I am just getting started in the digital scrapbooking world and What I think about this contest is that even if I don’t win I still am appreciative because I had a chance to win

  50. debbie wyler

    i just posted a link on my blog. the only problem is that i’m a private blogger so you wouldn’t be able to verify without an invitation. let me know if i get picked and i’ll send you an invite so you can see.

    i’m also posting it on another blog that is shared by dozens of grad student wives. it is also private! :)

  51. Michelle B.

    I would LOVE to win the October or November kit!!! I think all of her kits are so cute…. crossing my fingers and toes!

  64. Rebecca Barton

    Yea, I think this is my first blog contest ever that I have joined. I can tell you that I am so glad that I have found this site. The tutorials on how to make my blog cuter are just great, although I haven’t yet figured out the whole background thing yet. I have made a few too because they are fun to make. I just can’t get them to load to my full page. :( Any who I am a “nervous little thing” too I have a lot to learn. The packages look great though. I think they are so cute. I don’t have twitter, but I will have to facebook about it and tell my friends their too. Todaloo!

  65. Larissa

    I hope I win…I normally don’t…Although since I got started heavily into photography, I thought I would try this….

  66. Leslie

    I usually do “traditional paper” scrapbooking but I’m on this kick to learn more about the digital craze!! I could do very fun things with these kits!

  67. Candice S.

    Absolutely FAAAAAAAAAAABULOUS!!! Omg, I have wanted to win since you ladies started doing this!!! I have been so involved in my Project 365 from the photography perspective, but now I need to get all these photos scrapped!!! And boy do I have a lot! It’ll definitely be more than just the 365. There will be my “main” photo of the day, plus a few others that might have been taken on that same day. This project has changed my life. I see beauty where I didn’t know beauty existed!!! I hope this is my lucky month!! :)

    Amanda, your blog looks awesome!!!!

  68. Lydia

    Cute! I always love coming to your blog (and also the giveaways)!! By the way, i tried those buttermilk biscuits and they were de-lish!! Thanks for sharing!
