3.  Next is the RAK #1 from Greatest View . . .

My aim at  the Greatest View  is to provide you with versatile and interesting embellishments for scrapbooking. This comes from a personal need: I found I had too much patterned paper and not enough embellishments! Some of the products will be handmade, some will be sourced.  I can promise you quality and consistency with all Greatest View products. 
I try to stay current with colour schemes and trends as well as coming up with items to fill gaps within the industry. 
Purchasing Greatest View Products
I plan to have a bi-monthly sale on my blog with new releases or limited products. The first one is scheduled for February 1st and then subsequently the 1st of April, June, August, October & December. So you can lock these dates into your calendars!
I will still have my Etsy store open. After the blog sale I will list anything leftover or any restocks in between sales. You can purchase through Etsy anytime. I will advise you on this blog and facebook when I update the Etsy store.
I am sponsoring with a prize pack featuring some of our favorite products... you might even find some of the following

Catch the RAK #1 Winner is Faith Hope Cherrytea  

4.  Up next is the RAK #2 from Scrap It Girl . . .

Scrap It Girl aka Kimberly Congdon is located in Kenosha, Wisconsin and started in 2008.  It started out really small, with only one goal which was to only teach scrapbooking to local girls.    I now have a mini shop set up in my home along with a classroom that seats 20.  I teach scrapbooking, cards, altered art, kids classes, cricut classes, and holiday décor.  I  hold 3-5 classes per week.  I also host crops, girl scout classes, teach at local schools, museums, my local Hobby Lobby & Michael’s Craft store.    I  offer monthly challenges on my blog where you will also find great scrapbooking inspiration. Most of my business is done in person and in my area but I sell scrapbooking and craft supplies to online customers so if you are looking for something dont hesitate to contact me.  You can find me both on my  blog and on facebook
Scrap It Girl has sponsored the Birthday Celebration with an exciting prize back full of products

5.  Guess How Many Facebook Game....

I am a recognized expert in the field of digital design, mixed-media art, and scrapbooking.  In the past couple of years I have helped pioneer the Faithbooking revolution, where I have helped bring purpose to the scrapbooking industry by teaching women how to leave a legacy of their faith journey through the arts.  As an experienced speaker and educator, I have been invited to speak, teach, and transform lives through the process of what I have come to know as “healing art” all throughout the country. 

Nana has graciously donated a spot in her June Program Creative Biz Tool Kit
Well, have you dreamed of turning your hobby into a business, but are just lost on WHAT to do?  Have you decided I want to do “THAT”, but can’t seem to make it happen?  Do you feel it is time to make a change, but you find yourself a bit hesitant because of the unknown?  I understand the hesitancy of change. It is the one thing that humans do not do well with (for the most part).  You are afraid of the unknown – and many times you rather stay in the uncomfortable than to move towards the “THING” that makes your heart come alive.  Are you ready to leap out of fear’s skin while choosing to intentionally complete the goals you have set out to do?If so, the Creative Biz Tool-Kit is for you!
 The Creative Biz Tool-Kit isis made up of 4 weeks of short daily lessons available to you in a unique online classroom AND 2 phone calls a week.  For more information check out
Guess How Many Winner - Wendy Germain
6.  Who Am I Game by Little Happy Things

 I am a graphic designer happily married, living in Brooklyn with our lovely 1-year-old boy. I love design and I enjoy creating something for people and for myself. I am from Japan where "zakka" is not just a word for fashion and design phenomenon, but everyday life and culture. I don’t remember any day I didn’t check any “zakka” store when I was outside there.; colors, patterns, packaging, and great design are things that caught my eyes. {little.happy.things} is a collection of Japanese Washi Masking Tapes , Cute Stationery, Arts and Crafts, all kinds of my new finds of little things that make me happy from my hometown. Every item in this store is hand picked and brought back (or shipped back) by me when I go back to Japan to visit my family; or by my families and friends when they come to visit me. I hope you will enjoy these little happy things as much as I do!

Lisa H said...

Congrats winners!!! It was a fun party. =)

CarlyJo said...

I seen that even bit more was added to my "won" section. I am now double the blessed. I am telling you ladies this project for my husband is huge so its great that I was lucky enough to have help in pulling the supples together to get it done! Been working on it for 4 months and its getting down to the wire!

I have contacted the e-mail that I was too however I have not gotten a responce. I am trying to be patient but I am also concerned that I messed up with the first e-mail (no subject line) and it never got though. I sent a forwarded email the other day and have my concerns about that one. I understant that it may take time to get all e-mails from the other sites but I have no idea if its even getting though to the e-mail.

Nicole Brenna said...

Hi Carly
I sent a quick email last week to let you know that I couldnt send out the prize info until today since I had visitors and there were a lot of sponsors and winners to contact. I announced it on the FB group... I did send an email today giving you all the details and emailed the sponsors so they are expecting to hear from you. Sorry about the wait!
