Sizzix Organizing Giveaway
And as promised, here is today’s incredible giveaway! (if this is your first time at the Blue Nickel-Welcome! You can read the intro to today’s post here.)
I am sucker for beautiful organized spaces. Probably because in the past I have been so poor at keeping it that way ( I am GOING to CHANGE that, remember?)
So LAST WINTER when I was going to do this big cleanup project in January, Linda over at Sizzix sent me a bunch of cool diecuts to create some useful and beautiful organizing bits. Not only did she send ME some, but she also sent some for one of YOU. Okay, I shouldn’t say “some” — she sent a BIG PILE of stuff for you. So since I knew you weren’t ready for it last winter either — cough, cough….. 🙂 🙂 I waited until now to do the giveaway post.
So here’s what Linda sent me:
These little cards for winding up floss:
Love how floss looks on these. I have a LOT more to wind up, but I thought I would show you a sampling of what I have started with.
She also sent these larger similar winders. I will put more ribbon and other large fibers and ric-rac that I buy but rarely use (I will be working on using up what I have once I get them all organized).
Then there are these dividers that fit in those standard photo boxes. Will work for all sorts of things!
And then lastly there are these Fat Quarter Folding Card shapes. Kind of fun for Fat quarters. Normally FQ’s are hard to fold to a decent size I think. This works pretty well if the paper you use is stiff enough. I tried regular card stock, it was too flimsy. Note the Cream Puff cardboard. This is a great way to recycle and be cool and thrifty! (my apologies for the yellow photo — learning a new photo editing program and I could NOT get this one right!)
I used all sorts of paper and cardboard for for these. Old Christmas cards, Stationary box lids, post cards, shoe boxes, food boxes that didn’t actually touch food. etc. So much better than tossing or throwing straight into the recycling bin.
And So now for the FUN part!! The Giveaway! Yes, THIS WHOLE STACK below will be going out to one lucky winner (US only this time – as I have to ship them from the studio here) To win, please leave a comment here saying what you need to organize most this fall. AND to increase your chances to win, go over to my Instagram account and find the below picture. When you find that picture on Instagram, tag two or three friends there. A finalist will be picked at random from IG and the Blog, and then I will draw between those two names (unless they are BOTH your name) for the ultimate winner! I will draw the name next Thursday morning – September 15th and let them know by email. If I do not hear back from them in a few days, I will notify the runner up and then let you know who ultimately won after that!
So leave those comments. And jump on Instagram too! And Get Organizing!
