Well here is our promised giveaway, and I’m only a few hours late! He he! Turns out I overestimated my tech abilities just a bit, although that really isn’t saying much. Between setting up a giveaway program (no more picking with random.org!) and forgetting that the computer that was drowned in NY was the one on which Photoshop was installed (hello Picmonkey, my new friend!) it took me just a bit longer than usual to create this post!
Yes, for all of you who use a cash budget system, or who would like to start using a cash budget system, or who just like really cute envelopes…here is our giveaway!
First, the background: I made a set of these for myself about a year ago, and then wrote up this (hopefully!) super handy-dandy tutorial to share with y’all. And y’all have made them by the dozens (maybe?…I have no idea, really) and pinned them to Pinterest (yes, this one I DO know…hooray!) and I feel loved, lol!
Anyway, I used to create stuff in my awesomely-stocked craft room in NY whenever an idea popped into my head, because I had SO MUCH stuff stashed up. That was before losing the room and all of my craft supplies when our house flooded last March. So…now we’ve moved, and I’m slowly replacing crafty goodies. And I get ideas. And I have to go to the store (the horror, lol!) and buy everything I need to make those ideas, because I don’t have a fully-stocked array of everything. And it occurred to me–maybe y’all don’t, either!
So, I’m revisiting several of my most popular tutorials and putting together kits for them, which I will make available to sell. (Not sure how, yet…but I’m working on that part!) So instead of going out to JoAnn’s or Hobby Lobby and buying a 6-inch piece of 12 different components, y’all can use my handy kits and have everything you need right there in one package.
Of course, that means I have to actually make up new samples of each project, so I can take photos, etc. Oh, and with the help of my budding videographer children, I’m making video versions of the tutorials as well. And that is just plain CRAZY because I’m shy and hate the way I sound on recordings. But I digress…
Back to the giveaway…you are entering to win one complete set of 6 finished envelopes and a coordinating clutch to hold them in. I’m sewing up 5 different sample sets for now, and the winner will get to CHOOSE whichever ONE of the 5 sets you want! They are the royal blue, turquoise and lime set shown above, and the 4 sets (that I’ll be finishing up over the weekend, lol) shown below–turquoise, lime, and gray; pink and gray; yellow and gray; and the darker turquoise, lime, gray, and brown at the bottom.
So which one would YOU choose?
A couple things–if it looks like the button on the clutch up top there is just kind of floating…you’re correct! Would you believe that I don’t own a single hand-sewing needle? I know, crazy, right? I guess I haven’t needed one since moving, so I haven’t replaced them yet. But the craft store will be visited and the buttons will all be neatly sewn in place. Oh, and the other thing…the next samples I’m working on are for my cloth “paper dolls” which will be featured in a giveaway once this one is over. So come back for that. My little girl LOVES hers, so if you have little girls in your life you will want to enter that giveaway or (shameless plug alert) buy one of my kits!
