Day 4 Theme & Giveaway: Blue Birds/Paris

Filed under Cat's Away... 2011, Giveaways, Sale

Note: most of the links on this post no longer work, as we moved to a new Web site in 2018. But you can try searching on the same names (as links below) on the new site.

Hey, it’s Day 4 of the “While the Cat’s Away…” Giveaways! And today’s theme is Blue Birds/Paris. We’ve moved from yesterday’s pink theme to a blue one today, but no less romantic! Click on the photo at right to see even more of the today’s beautiful Giveaway Kit.

Here’s how these themed days will work: I’ve gathered new (and current) items around a theme. All of them are on sale for everyone. And I’ve pulled together a lovely Giveaway Kit made from those goodies that will be awarded to one lucky person.

To enter the Blue Birds/Paris Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post (don’t forget to leave your email address, too, so I can contact the winner; note, your email address does not need to be made public).

After midnight I’ll randomly pick the previous day’s winner.

More info on the Holiday Closure & Giveaway Rules (including how you can get entered twice in each day’s drawing).

Note: all the indented items below are included in the Giveaway Kit. And here’s a quick link to all of those Giveaway Kit items (all of which are on sale). There are some additional (related) things just(!) put on sale that are not in the Giveaway Kit (down at the bottom of this page).

Timeless: Script Scrapbook Paper
Double-sided 12″ x 12″ sheet. Panel on far right shows part of the backside of the paper.

Chipboard Birdhouse Book
8 pages on a chain, front and back pages are die-cut (different designs…. and that back cover will probably not be used as a cover after popping out all of those birds & trim). Approx. 6-3/4″ wide x 6-1/2″ tall.

Bird Embellishments
Cast resin with nice detailing. They have a whitewashed look, but are also easy to paint other colors.

French Backgrounds – Winter Collage Sheet

3/8 Inch Reversible Blue/Brown Floral Ribbon
Imported from France.

The darker one in the photo. Imported from France.

1/4 Inch Silk Ribbons in 2 Colors – Cornflower & Light Aqua

Nest Rubber Stamp
Wood mounted only.

Glittered Postcard Scrapbook Paper
Beautiful, double-sided 12″ x 12″ cream-colored scrapbook paper with a lovely postcard theme, including postage stamps and markings, as well as a bird, all accented with fine silver glitter. The background has a nice, faint script pattern. The back side features a wonderful floral tile design.

Place Vendome Ribbon
So French. Phrases include “Le Louvre”, “Place Vendôme”, “Rive Gauche” and “Nôtre-Dame”. 5/8″ wide (15mm). Polyester. It’s very soft… would be a fab edging on the inside of a lining (if anyone still sews their own clothing). Imported from (where else?) France.

Paris Pendants – Half-Page Collage Sheet
A collage sheet with artwork sized to fit pendants and paper punches that are on the Nunn Design Pendants page. Each image is repeated twice on the 4-1/4″ x 11″ half-page sheet.

Bracelet at left by Design Team Member Megan Hull using an image from the collage sheet with Round Mini Bracelet Links with 2 Loops.

French Shrine Rubber Stamp
A beautiful, collaged stamp with lots of potential to frame a portrait or to layer over other images.

Wood mounted only.

    Bonjour! Qui n’aime pas les oiseaux de Paris? No one loves the birds of Paris, well, birds anywhere really, than me. Outside my office windows I have set up my mother-in-law’s old bird bath and twice daily the black capped chickadees, crossbills, finches, forest thrush and even flickers come to drink and bathe. Just beyond it in the upper bed is a 3 foot wire Eiffel Tower, so our birds will think they live in Paris. This kit would be great to document the birds in my garden! Thank you for your generous offer. Renee L Cox
