June Blog Love give away

Problem:


So I cleaned out my scrapping supplies last week and it hit me - boy do I have a lot of card stock and how much card stock do I use? Not much at all...

Well I love white and black and that's about it. I know I should use this to push me into using more coloured stuff but really it is not my style right now. And even if it was, I have more than I could possibly use in the near (or far) future.

Solution:



I have THREE of these packs to giveaway, international entries more than welcome! Each pack has 25 different coloured card stocks, plus one coredinations/jillibean soup dimensions piece, plus one Prima paintable and one Lush flocked patterned paper (each pack is slightly different but the numbers will be the same)



Way to get your hands on this stash:

Ok I have made it slightly tricky but hopefully you will get inspired by others. To go into the draw for a chance at one of these packs, I would like you to become a new follower of someone - anyone (Not me although I would love it if you did of course!!), it doesn't really matter who and leave them an encouraging comment - because we all love comments!! Then leave your name and who you are now following in the comments here and I will draw three winners on July 1.

And if you become a follower of someone who has less than 30 followers then you will go into the draw twice (just leave a little '30' in brackets on your entry here). And an extra entry if you mention me on your blog (please pass the word around).

Not the most exciting of give aways (I know...) but we all, scrappers and cardmakers, alike use the basics and it would make me very happy to clear out my stash just a little....

So go find someone new to follow!!
