Welcome to Freebie Friday! We had so much fun with our promotional Stamp It! Week that we’ve decided to do it again with our next special issue 225 Cards & Gifts! Even though this fabulous magazine doesn’t hit newsstands until April 28, we’re going to give you a little sneak peek with our upcoming Cards & Gifts Week (April 20-24)!
Not only will we being having a ton of fun here, but we’re partnering with creative editor Cath Edvalson and her Moxie Fab World blog. Both sites will be doing daily giveaways, as well as spotlighting some great cards and projects from this “gifty” special issue.
Next week on Paper Crafts Connection:
Magazine Monday – Designer spotlight on uber talented Maren Benedict. Maren has so many projects in this issue, we just had to sit and pick her creative brain. We’ll also post one of her darling card sets from the cards section. And if you’re a stamper, you won’t want to miss this giveaway!
Tuesday – Editor-in-Chief Jennifer Schaerer will spotlight the gift cards chapter and give away fun packaging that’s perfect for those little gift cards!
Thursday – Editor Susan Opel will spotlight the gift wrap chapter with her very own project that’s not only stylish, but quick and easy, too! And you guessed it – she’ll be giving away something cool!
Freebie Friday – I’ll show you projects from our home décor and miscellaneous gifts sections. And the prize attached to this day is so unbelievably huge, I think I’m gonna have to attach a disclaimer to it.
And if that weren’t enough, we’re hosting another fun online contest. The Cards & Gifts Challenge officially begins right now! To play, create a Mother’s Day gift in one of these SIX categories:
- Card Sets
- Gift Card Holders
- Gift Wrap
- Food Wrap
- Home Decor
- Miscellaneous (journals, gift sets, notebooks, bookmarks, etc.)
Upload your project to the Cards & Gifts Week Challenge on Flickr.com by clicking here. The deadline is midnight (MST) on Monday, April 27. Make sure you identify the category you are entering in the title of your project. We will choose TWO winners in each category and feature them either here on the Paper Crafts Connection blog or on the Moxie Fab World blog on Thursday, April 30. And of course, there will be prizes!
So, as you can see, we have a lot of fun blog posts (and prizes galore!) planned for Cards & Gifts Week.
Hope to see you back here!
P.S. It wouldn’t be Freebie Friday without free prizes, right? Since we have six chapters in 225 Cards & Gifts, I’m giving away six K&Company collections! Leave a comment telling me the best gift you’ve ever received. All comments must be received by midnight (MST) on Sunday, April 19. I’ll announce the six winners on Monday, April 20!
