    French Kiss ATC Kit Giveaway!

    Filed under French Vintage/Belle Epoque, Giveaways, Kits

    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.

    This kit was inspired by a beautiful hinged canvas book that Design Team Member Laura Carson made using the new French Kiss 6×6 Paper Pad.

    (And Laura recently created a tutorial for her book/shrine to Cléo de Mérode.)

    The kit in this Giveaway includes a new Cléo de Mérode ATCs Collage Sheet and 12 different 6″ x 6″ single sided mini scrapbook papers (one each of all the designs in the French Kiss 6×6 Paper Pad).

    Read more about what’s in the kit (and see more photos) on the French Kiss ATC Kit page.

    The ATC at right was made by Laura using components from the kit (with a few extra charms and Dresden… see the kit page for more details). Note: finished sample not included in the kit!

    Back to this Giveaway and how it works: One of these lovely kits will be awarded to a lucky person chosen by random number drawing.

    To enter the 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). (I’m even including free shipping… though only in the U.S.A.)

    After 12:01 a.m. on Thursday morning, March 8, 2012, I’ll randomly pick the winner (you have until Wednesday night at midnight, March 7, 2012 to enter).

    So leave me a comment and tell your friends!
