Celebrate with Blog Candy!

Happy Birthday to me...some time this week! To celebrate I am giving away some blog candy!

The ink pad and re-inker are seafoam that are retired. The CTMH stamp set is The Giving Hand (retired and slightly used). There is one little stamp missing from this set. I bought this set from someone and I didn't realize the flower was missing until I got it, so I had to buy another one. The solid flower at the top is missing. I really like this set and the sayings. Obviously, since I had to buy another one. I hope you don't mind. I keep staring at this set in my collection and hope it can go to a good home, who will love it even though the flower is missing.

To enter just leave a comment whether you are a scrapbooker, cardmaker or both and what you would like to see more...cards or layouts. I will use random number generator to draw the winner on Friday. I will announce the winner, when I have time over the weekend.

In addition, I had someone ask how I make my scallops. I have two different scallops that I use for now. I haven't played with my Pazzles enough to use that one.

The first one is a scallop circle punch. There are several out there to buy. The ones I know about are from Marvy and Stampin' Up.

The second way I make scallops are my cards is from the EK Success corner rounder. CTMH carries it in their catalog. I take off the guide and use it to punch scallops like this:

Punching Scallops

Since there is a tutorial out there already, I thought I would share that with you. It takes a little practice, but you will get the hang of it.

Happy Stamping!

I started out scrapbooking many years ago and then in the last year and a half have gone to cardmaking. I just love to see both to get inspiration for my craft. Thanks for the chance to win.

I like cards cause they are quick and easy but I do mostly layouts so I would like to see more of that if you have time.

I like making cards and seeing handmade cards. They are quick little works of art!

I vote more cards!! (I'm a cardmaker) But I'd like to start some scrapbooking so layouts are nice too! (I've always had trouble making up my mind, sorry)

Sue said...

Happy early Birthday Kim! I love your blog and I do both scrapbooking and card making. I would love to see a little bit more of scrapbooking, but anything you post is great! Your tutorials are my favorite - going into the details of all the techniques is what keeps me coming back! Thank you for adding the additional pictures of the tutorial projects.

I prefer making cards but do some scrapbooking. I like to see any new techniques and masculine cards,
I always seem to have a hard time with man cards.
Happy B'day to you! And thanks for the chance at your wonderful candy!

Sharon Dixon said...

Happy Bday. I am a scrapbooker first, but am just getting into making cards. I would love to see more layouts though as I am fresh out of creativity.

Lisa said...

Happy Birthday Kim!

I am a card maker than a scrapbooker. I love making cards and look forward to seeing more ideas and inspiration especially those with CTMH products! I have quite a few stuff from CTMH (stamps and papers). Thank you for doing this blog candy - I love the colour of the ink!

Hi Kim, I posted on the wrong comment page . . . I am the gal that was asking about the scallops. I do primarily cardmaking, love the tutorials and all the great ideas you share with us. Thanks and have a great b-day and enjoy the sunshine.

I started as a scrapbooker, but after following a stamping course I also started cardmaking. I enjoy both! I like examples of cards the most since I'm still a beginner and can use a lot of inspiration.
Thanks for a chance to win!

Mandiannie said...

I started out cardmaking and then got into scrapbooking. I figured out later that I didn't like the cut-n-paste scrapbooking so I switched to digital which I really enjoy. I;m an avid cardmaker and make all my own card plus a few that I sell to friends and family.

Mommy Poulsen said...

I wouold love to see more scrapbook pages, but it looks like a lot of people want to see cards! Happy B-day!

Terese said...

I do both cardmaking and scrpbooking (well I try anyway). I would like to see a mixture of both.

Anita said...

Since all of my ink is CTMH, and most of my stamps and paper are too, I would definitely love to win this blog candy! I have been mostly doing cards, but want to start back into scrapbooking since I have about 7 books I want to make and several to finish - dating back to 2000!

Love your site. I had wondered how to make scallops with a punch and now I know. I'm primarily a card amker, but do a little bit of scrapbooking. that means I would like to see ideas for cards. I'm also a fellow CTMH consultant.

Great site!
