April Blog Giveaway

For those who didn't know, Carol won last month's blog giveaway. The blog giveaway were 2 zentangle bookmarks. I added a little something to the package. =) You can read and view the photos at Carol's blog here.

This month, I am giving away something a little special. I received quite a lot of crafting papers and embellishments from swaps, so I've decided to share a little from my stash with one lucky reader. =) It's what I'd like to call Matchbox for Beginner Kit.

What you'll receive [click on the image to view large]

The lucky reader will get an altered matchbox filled with crafting goodies, like what you can see in the photo, plus a pre-cut template of the matchbox from the tutorial and two pieces of 6x6 crafting paper. I'm throwing in a little bag of paper punch-outs of daisies, stars, teddy bears, balloons and butterflies as well. I've chosen the primary colours to be pink and red, so the paper should work well with the embellishments.

If you don't mind receiving these (some picky people do mind as they're not brand new, etc but I assure you that they're clean and like new), then all you have to do is tell me why you really want the Matchbox for Beginner Kit from CraftnSwap.

This is open to everyone, anywhere in the world. Just leave me a message here and this will run until 30th April 2008. The winner will be announced here on Thursday, 1st May 2008 and will be chosen based on his/her answer. So be creative and give me your best! Good luck!

For the winner: I'd love to see the finished altered matchbox made with this kit. I hope you'll make something really pretty out of it, take some photos and show us! =)


  1. Hey, I saw your blog on blog explosion. Figured why not enter, it's a pretty scrapbook page kit.

  3. Hi there! The Matchbox Kit For Beginner is really cute! I wish I can have it, because I love DIY (do it yourself) stuffs a lot! I'll like to have a little matchbox to put some cutie little stuffs which I think I won't lost them easily because they're well kept in the cute matchbox. And also the altered matchbox filled with crafting goodies is awesome! I can see those crafting goodies are cute and I can use them as my homemade cards or some decorations!
