Spellbinders Giveaway

Now that we are deep into 2012 and my Design Team term working with Spellbinders was offically over in March.... I thought it would be fun to look back on lots of the projects that I was able to create for them throughout 2011 and early 2012.  Because they used our projects for different reasons, we weren't able to share or post our creations on our blogs until they appeared in the Spellbinders Idea Gallery.  And because I wasn't very good at following up on them.... that means I get to share a lot
 of them in one big post here! 

Soooooooo..... I thought it would be fun to post some of my favorite projects and hopefully hear what yours are!   Leave a comment telling me which project is your fave and you will be entered to win the big Spellbinders giveaway.  See what's included at the bottom of this post! 

Thanks for stopping by!


























I love love love Spellbinders and all their products!  They were insanely generous with us and I will always be so grateful for the fun opportunity I had!  But seriously... I have so many fun dies now that I won't possibly use them all.  That's why I've gone through my collection and have decided to give a bunch away to one lucky winner.  All of these dies may or may not have even been used.  And if they were used.... it was only a very few times.  Leave a comment telling me which of my projects shown above is your favorite by Monday, May 28th and you could win all of this valued at over $400.00 retail:



Good luck and thanks for stopping by!

  34. Hello! What great ideas!! It's difficult to pick a favorite from so many, however, my top 3 are: Families Are Forever tray, Season's Greetings, and the 3-D flower arrangement with the butterfly. It's really fun to see the wide variety of projects you made. Thanks for sharing. Janelle H - scrappinjan at hotmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  35. How can I pick just one project, they are all so great! I think my favorite may be the "summer fun saving" jar as I think it is a great idea and a super fun looking jar!!
    Thanks for this great giveaway you are just super talented!

    ReplyDelete
  36. OHHH, MYYYYY, WORRRRRRD!!! You've got to be kidding me! PICK ONE? With a possibility to win all that fantastic STUFF!!!!? {{faint}} ... be still my heart ... Wow. Alright then ... I'll pick one but am in LOVE with many.

    The one that jumped out at me as crazy-adorable and so much reminiscent of your fun, breezy and colorful, creative style is the card with the Copic-colored (??) sweetheart of a girl, holding the bouquet, on the orange and lime backgrounds, with the matching 3D flowers on it. I'd LOVE to have that card in my mailbox, on my wall, just SUPER-fun and adorable. It speaks Shanna to me! ♥ So thank you for sharing such a wonderful lot of projects at one time to make me swoon on this dreary Monday.

    I love you, your talent, and your generosity.

    Fondly,
    Ellen

  62. I love them all, but if I had to single something out, I'd say that the layout titled "Son" would be my favorite! It's such an inspiring masculine layout, and you used the nesties in such a cool way that I would not have thought of (under each letter). Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I am only choosing a favorite because you're making me ... love the "13" LO .. the use of the dies as journaling spots and accents is awesome ... I am totally stealing this idea. Thanks for the chance to win goodies ... you do very nice work

    ReplyDelete
  64. I love all of the ones with the flowers, and I love the doilies on the '13' LO, but if I have to select a fav, I guess the little girl holding the flowers. Besides loving the flowers, it's so bright and cheerful.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Wow! All of your projects are beautiful so it is hard to choose just one...I really like the "Congrats, two peas in a pod" one tho...it is absolutely adorable. Thank you so much for the chance to win this generous give-away. :)

    ReplyDelete
  90. They are all so lovely but the one that REALLY stuck out for me was the fifth one, Summer Fun Savings jar. It brings home to me that I need to start a jar just like that. It's been 16 years since my hubby and I have been able to take a trip away with each other without the kids. I think a pretty creative jar just might be the way to start getting focussed on saving for a weekend away somewhere. Thanks for such an awesome giveaway~
