Avery Elle DT & Goodie Giveaways

I'm so excited to be able to share the news that I'm joining the Avery Elle Design Team!  If you haven't already heard about Avery Elle, they are a newly-launched company based in Southern California.  They specialize in high quality photopolymer stamps but will also be carrying heavyweight cardstock (squeee!) and matching grosgrain ribbon! 


I was so surprised when Jamie Gracz (the owner and stamp designer of Avery Elle) asked me to join her team!  And when I found out that Heather Campbell, Kasia Curry, and Chunyuan Wu were on board too, I was beside myself!  {Seriously, these ladies are amazing.  If you don't already have their websites bookmarked, go now!  I'll wait:)} Our first group DT post will be in July and each month or so we will be showcasing new stamp sets and cardstock/ribbon colors!  I can't wait!  

To celebrate joining the Avery Elle team and passing the 100 post mark on my blog, I thought I'd give out some goodies!  For a chance to win the items shown below, just leave a comment on this post and leave a comment on the Avery Elle blog post here. Easy peasy, right?  I'll pick a random winner next Wednesday (July 4th) at 11:59 pm EDT. This giveaway is open to US and International folks too!
 This giveaway is now closed!  I will be posting the winners the evening of July 5th!

And as an extra THANK YOU to all the kind people who have followed my blog over the past year, I have second package full of goodies to give away!  The deadline is the same, but this time all you need to do is follow my blog.  And if you're already a follower, you're automatically entered:)  The contents of this box will be a SURPRISE, but I promise lots of fun stuff!  I wish I could do more for all of the awesome people that stop by and leave such nice comments!  I hope you all know how much I appreciate your visits!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
