Winter Scrapbook Retreat Sponsor Swag Giveaway: Day 5

The day has finally arrived to enter to win one of three enormous scrap retreat swag bags. Before we get to the details, let’s take a look at some more great goods!


Have you gone digital yet? Then you’re going to love love LOVE these:

Polka Dot Pixels Digital Kits!

Frozen Kit, Circle of Friends KitSpin Brushes, and Amalgamation Borders.

Emily Abramson is the superstar creative behind Polka Dot Pixels digital scrapbooking found exclusively at Two Peas in a Bucket. I’m so excited to share her amazing designs. And with the sponsored kits for the swag bags, she has included discount coupons for 25% off any Polka Dot Pixel products from Two Peas! When you see how many products that applies to, you’ll be even more impressed!

Check out the Polka Dot Pixel blog, and follow on Facebook & Twitter.

Thank you Emily!

Like many old-school graphic designers, I have been fond of kraft paper for many years. It was a huge trend to follow in the early 90s thanks to designer Charles Anderson and French Paper Company. I dug up this old shot of the Christmas promotion I designed for my design firm back then that I sent out to clients and vendors, (which actually won an award from French Paper Company!) Now that I’ve moved more into crafting, I’m still very fond of same natural kraft material so easily available from Canvas Corp along with some other really cool natural canvas, burlap and other unique products. Here’s the great papers and embellishments that they sponsored for the swag bags:

Canvas Corp 12″ x 12″ Papers, Chalkstock Tags and Mini Clothespins!

Lovely designed papers from their black and kraft food collection featuring gourmet wording, recipe cards and cool kitchen graphics.They included some great Halloween prints on white and cream, just in time as those photos are just coming out of most scrappers’ printers! They have some really great everyday patterns like my favorite, the orange and white dot reverse.How brilliant are these Chalkstock tags with twine ties? And sweet mini clothespins, just the right size embellishement clips. There are so many lovely things being crafted with their products- you can see many of them on their Facebook page and the Canvas Corp blog. You can purchase Canvas Corp products on and

Thank you Canvas Corp!If you haven’t been to the EK Success website lately, you really need to go. They have such quality brands and really sensational products. Their brand, Inkadinkado has a really nice selection of stamps and accessories, and here are a couple they sent for us!

Ink Lace Flourish Wood Stamp


Victorian Leaf Lace Wood Stamp

Their wood and rubber stamps are going to be fun to use not only for ink stamping- with such beautiful designs, but I’m looking forward to trying them out for embossing velvet, something you can’t do with acrylic stamps. You can find my velvet embossing projects here and here.

I was excited to bring some craft kits to the scrap retreat since scrapping the whole weekend can get a bit overwhelming if you don’t break it up a bit. The EK Success brand, Laliberi, has beautiful accessory project kits and so for the swag bags they sponsored:

Chiffon Chic Dark Flower Kit


Chiffon Chic Light Flower Kit

I think these would make wonderful holiday gift kits for tween & teen girls. They would also be good for them to have early enough to make accessories as gifts for their friends. Of course ladies of any age would love this kit as well as a flower accessories crafted from it.

One of the retreat scrappers used her kit to add a beautiful chiffon bloom to her scrapbook layout featuring her own teenage daughter.

Now we’re on to one of my favorite craft brands and one of my most important craft studio tools,

The Martha Stewart Crafts Scoring Board!

Martha Stewart Crafts have been an enormous gift to the crafting industry. So many high quality and beautifully engineered products, so little time. I was turned on to the Martha Stewart Crafts Scoring Board by my friend, professional stylist & crafter Suzonne Stirling some time ago when we were working on some product prototypes together. Now that I have the board I am constantly coming up with things to score! I think of all the years of my life designing and crafting that this would have been a Godsend. For creating accordion-folded prize ribbon rosettes the Martha Stewart Crafts Scoring Board is indispensable. If you do any paper crafting at all, you! need! this! board!

There is so much going on over at the EK Success Brands website and so much to be inspired by. Here are just a few necessary links for you to bookmark to keep up on all the amazing ideas, techniques, products and tools:

EK Success Brands Facebook, Twitter, Video Page, and the wonderfully creative community of The Spotted Canary.
