How 'Bout Somethin' Fun?

**This is a sticky--scroll down for newer posts**

I've been able to spend some time each afternoon this week working on my family photo albums. And I'm lovin' it! I was a Creative Memories consultant for 2+ years, and for some reason, when I combined business with pleasure, it sucked all the pleasure out of scrapbooking for me. Now that the pressure is off, I'm enjoying it again (yay!) and have made some serious progress on my albums this week. Woohoo!

In the midst of all my scrappin', I discovered that I have SO much scrapbooking stuff in my stash. Probably too much. I'm a minimalist when it comes to "stuff" but that doesn't seem to apply to paper, templates, punches, and stickers. *smile*

I happened upon a brand new box of goodies that I forgot I had, and I thought about selling it on ebay, but then I decided it'd be way more fun to do a little giveaway here on the 'ole blog.

So....

...wanna win this??? It's a Creative Memories Mini Moments box. It includes this colorful tin box...

12 printed photo mats...

One fun punch (I use mine all the time)...

12 5x7 calendar mats like this one (the back side has a smaller calendar box)...

And two fun magnets. The magnets are very strong, and have a clear lid that comes off so you can store things inside. And, the magnets stick to the tin box!


All you have to do to win is leave me a comment. I draw a winner on Monday, June 23, at 7PM (mountain time). If you're not a scrapbooker, enter anyway! This would make a fun gift for someone who is!

*You don't have to have a blog to enter this giveaway, but please make sure I have a way to contact you should you win!
*One comment per person, please.

Oh, mercy, I feel faint with all the goodness of this giveaway! Please enter me! I was a CM consultant for about a year and a half, and I couldn't agree more with your sentiments. And, I am sooooooo behind in all my scrapping. Time to get off my duff, organize, and purge. :)

My wife, Amy (Roberts), and I (Matt Travis) come to your site via Dee Dee's blog. We went to DBU too...class of '97 and '98. Amy is trying to scrap all that she can before we go overseas w/ the IMB. Hoping to go to training w/ The Williams family. I would love to give this to Amy just for being who she is. Our blog is travisteam.blogspot.com.

Oh, I love scrapbooks!!!

Ingram Gang said...

I just happened to stumble upon your blog, what fun items. I am just starting scrapbooks for my two tiny tots, I would love to win :)
Your blog is a lot of fun!

p.s. we are headed to take the kids to Durango, CO in a few days, since you are a CO girl, I thought you might know of some fun things we could do there. Just thought I would throw that out there in case you had any recommendations!
Nice to meet you

Elizabeth said...

Scrapbooking totally intimidates me, but I would love to give it a shot. My new baby needs a baby book!

Lesli said...

I have been scrapping for about 15 yrs now. Have a book for each year of my kids lives so far, one is 5 and the other is 3 plus lots of gift books for family and friends. I also have a junior scrapbook nut (my 5 yr old daughter) who could do it 24/7 if I let her. We would love to share your gift. Thanks for entering us.

Kellie said...

This is fun! I have about six (or eight, but who's counting!) years worth of scrap booking to finish.

I haven't pulled the scrap booking out at all since we moved here! Isn't that sad!

Maybe some new stuff is just the motivation I need to get busy....or maybe I just need to put the sewing machine away for awhile!

Deidre said...

Oh, I love this! Great giveaway, Meredith. I need this motivation to get started again. My youngest, bless her heart, has one page in her album, while my oldest has 4 albums - yikes!

Kelly @ Love Well said...

I have a love-hate relationship with scrapbooking. But seeing as I have a mild addiction to paper, I'll have to sign up for this contest anyway.

Natalie Witcher said...

HELLO

Crazy Daisy said...

Wonderful giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity! I just graduated, and am job hunting so I haven't been able to by any new stuff lately! This would so be my fix!

Casey said...

Okay, I have tried the scrapbooking thing... but confession... I like to finish a project in one setting. In other words, I do not have enough patience. Instead, I do scrap memory boxes. Quick, easy and good for storage!

Great give away, Mer! Love the dots! :)

Rae said...

Wow! Every day you've been able to scrapbook? I'm in awe! How fabulous for you. I would be ecstatic to be the winner! I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Trish said...

Looks like fun!
I was jsut sitting at the park with some friends and we were chatting about how we all have not scrapbooked in a very long time (over four years for me!) and so we planned a crop night.

Hopefully I'll win these fun goodies.

Heather said...

ooooh- that is AWESOME! I love new scrap stuff! (although I am like you and already have tons!)
I didn't know you used to be a consultant....you must be a master scrapper!
I am a novice, but I still love it!
OH- and I'm about to tag you for something fun on my blog!
Happy weekend!

Tami said...

It looks great. I would love to start my scrapbooking again.

Holly said...

Hey Meredith!

I'm glad you are enjoying your scrapbooking again. Have a great weekend!

Lynn said...

Hi Meredith,

I have been reading your blog for awhile and am really enjoying it. I have a closet full of scrapbooking stuff that is sooo old. My poor son's scrapbook is only completed almost up to his second birthday. He will be 12 in November! That is so sad! Maybe you will inspire me to set up a table and just work on it during my free time this summer! I love the lazy days of summer....we are striving for those this year. :)

This kit is so cute. Good luck everyone! Have a great weekend!
:)Lynn

Meredith,

I am so glad that you have made so much progress on your books this week and that you have had such a great time! :o)

I am not a scrapper (I know I feel guilty that I am not - hoping to to start doing digital books someday)but I love to make cards.

Good luck to all those who entered. Nice giveaway.

Angie said...

No, pick ME! I so want that box of goodies.

Ooh, yeah! I hope I win!

And I hope you have a great weekend, Mer. :o)

Love and hugs,

Would love to win! Scrap booking supplies are non existent here!!! Thanks for holding this.

The Nester said...

what's a scrapbook?

wouldn't that be so funny? I think I'm just a barrel of laughs apparently.

pick me, I never win anything.

leigh said...

The creative person in me is being smothered by small children! This give-a-way may be just what I need to shake them off and get moving!

Betsy said...

I love scrapbooking, so I'm in!!

Regular, with half and half and raw sugar said...

Looks like I need to break out the old scrapbooks that have been under the bed for too long! Here's to you picking me!!

Jennifer said...

Count me in, please! I love to scrapbook but haven't found a lot of time so far this summer. This would be a great pick me up since my computer got fried. :o(

Love this! Thanks for sharing!

DotBlogger said...

WooHoo!

secondofwett said...

My daughter who just had her 4th baby 6 weeks ago, loves to scrapbook and has been trying to keep up one for each child...I know she'd love this package!

Rebecca said...

Hi! I'm a friend of Carrie (with all that I've been given) and have been a lurker on your blog for a couple of months. I'd love to win your contest - and figured this would be a great time to introduce myself. :)We just moved from CS in January - and your blog reminds me of home sweet home.

Have a great day!
