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!
Update: Drawing is now closed. Winner will be contacted shortly.
Talk to you soon!

Oh how I need this! My fabric and notions could really use some organizing!
I save ribbon, and it sits in a tangled mess. This would make organizing fun!
Does it count to say I need to organize my life?! LOL! I’m actually de-stashing some of my fabric in my apple shop this fall so I need to get all of that on boards, organized and ready to sell! Thanks for the chance to win!
I really, really, really … need to organize my fabrics and notions, particularly notions
I struggle with sorting my fabrics in a logical way. I wish I was more organized all the way around! If I could come up with a good system, that would be great!
I’m in the muddle of a scrap cutting marathon which is looking endless.
I need to get my whole sewing\crafting room organized. Been working on it still a long way to go.

Organization is always something I need help with

I need to clean up and organize my sewing space….
My fabric scraps need to be organized–they are practically begging me to bring some order to my quilting room.

My whole world needs organizing, this would be a start. Thank you for the opportunity.
I’ve got to get a hold of my WIP! I have projects in my closet and under my bed. Kids started school today which means more time to sew and get things in order.
I would love to have an organizer that will organize my floss as well as my fabric! It would make organizing and finding what I need so much easier!!!
I need to organize everything!! Thank you for the nice giveaway!

Oh my fabric is a mess. I really need to figure out how to tidy it all up.
Would love some help organizing!
I need me some organizing and winning this bundle of goodies would be a Boon!!!!
Thanks Scott for the chance.
I need to organize my fabric. I was using Quiltology, and while it is great for making blocks and things, it is taking a Loooooong time to put in all my fabric. I need a better system. (there is also the issue of my ipad camera not really being that great and having color issues)
My notions need organizing the most. Want to have them easily reachable to my sewing area.
I have so many small collections of craft items that I don’t know how to organize. Paper punchers, sequins, colored pencils, cardstock, ribbon, strings, silk flowers, etc. The list goes on and on~
FUN! In my tiny space, organizing is a must! Currently my floss is tucked (stuffed) in photo boxes. These goodies would be so fun! Might even share some with that Marshal chick. 🙂
I need to organize my smaller cuts of fabric! My dresser drawer for them is full and I need to fold them better so I can fit more in 🙂
Need to organize our craft area.
I need to organize my clothes closet. In my sewing room, my notions need attention.
Oh wow, what a great prize! I have a lot of paper craft stuff, some beading stuff, and some fabric I need to organize better. Thanks and God bless! ILuvTheEucharist (at) aol.com
I am redoing my fabric and craft space this would be perfect.
Great ideas in this section. I’d love to win this prize.
I need these very badly. I moved twice and went from three bedroom house to one and a half bedroom 60s single wide trailer. Trying to organize as I go through boxes so I can find stuff isnt easy. I have multiple craft types of items and sewing and now I have started quilting as well.
Thanks for the opportunity
I need to organize my patterns and notions, thanks!
This looks so great, i would finally clean up that bag and box of ribbon, trims and rick rack. And now I can organize the jumbled mess of perle cotton and embroidery floss, thanks!
The Barr Spool
My biggest ordeal I need to organize is my fabric. You know what they say, he who has the most fabric wins! 🙂
Well Scott, I must say that my whole sewing regime needs an overhaul! Organization always get thrown to the back burner in a busy schedule! But, if I should pick one thing!…I would say my fabrics need organized. I keep lots of yard and have several fat quarters. I would love to see them out where I can pick and choose instead of heading to the fabric shop for more. (I do love going to those shops though!)

Ribbons would be the thing that I most need to organize – a drawer full of tangles.
I moved my whole sewing room into a walk-in closet early this year to make room for a baby nursery. Organization is key to making the system work and my hobbies (quilting, embroidery, doll making, and knitting) could all benefit from these dies. Those are the cutest floss bobbins I’ve seen!
Wow these are awesome! I have fabric pieces all over my studio so the FQ die is perfect. I also like the die for the ribbon. I think these will definitely go on my christmAs wish list if I don’t win.
I love the fat quarter folder! I have way too many fat quarters that look like bigger cuts until I unfold them and I need a better way to organize them and separate them. Thanks for the chance to win!
I need pretty ways to organize. When supplies get packed into boxes and storage, I seem to forget what I have. I need my stuff out in the open to enjoy and dream and create!!
I need better organization of my sewing and crafting notions and fabric
I could definitely use all those items in organizing my sewing room in particular my fat quarters. and some of my sewing notions.
What doesn’t need to be organized!? LOL. All of my sewing and stamping do dads need homes instead of being thrown here and there and pushed aside when in the way, then maybe I could find them when needed. Thanks!
I need to organize my ribbon and lace, it’s all currently thrown in a vintage laundry hamper.
I need to organize my books and patterns…..currently stashed away in too many places and so, therefore, I buy the same book or pattern twice!
Hallway closet needs the most organization and then I’ll treat myself to fabric organizing and creating some fabric gift bags w/all the scraps I find amidst. Thank you
I need to organize everything! It’s under a table in my kitchen waiting for the right organizing technique. Thank you!
I need to organize most everything. I have piles on the counter, piles on the floor, piles on the sewing table, piles on the cutting table … Great give away Scott.

This would be so timely as I am desperately trying to organize my sewing room supplies!!! Fingers crossed and thanks for the chance!!!
