a lovely Saturday giveaway

*if you're looking for our swap list, I added a shortcut! -------------> click on the heart and it will take you to the post..*



I made a little embellishment kit to giveaway on my blog today. Just a few things to add to a scrapbook layout or if your making your own valentine! My favorite is the handmade stickers, I use them on everything; envelopes, notes, cards, tags... and anything else that I can stick them too. :)





If you're taking a break today leave your name in the comment section... and if you have a little extra time I have a question! More like a poll I suppose. Craft class or Scrapbook class?

(If you had the chance (and spare time) what would you rather take, a class on scrapbooking or a class on crafting? Personally, even though I love working with paper, I think I'd be more incline to choose a crafting class. I like the idea of being more open to different projects and maybe not just focusing on only paper crafting. Does that make sense?)

I'll choose a name on Monday morning!!

I'd pick a craft class. There are so many scrapbooking classes out there, but craft classes are far and few in between :)

Christi said...

I'd take a crafty class. Then I can try the techniques on layouts or cards.

Elisa1 said...

For sure a craft class.

Marie aka bettiescrapbook said...

Yep craft class. I have so many that I want to learn. :) love the little giveaway!

Brenda said...

I'd probably chose a craft class. I mean I feel like I already know pretty much about scrapbooking, but I'm always open to trying new crafty things. Both would be fun, though.
Thanks for the delightful giveaway!

Dana Gustafson said...

"craft" for sure...then you can leave the techniques wide open and leave it up to participants to decide where to take theirknowledge next! THanks for the chance at your giveaway...you have THE BEST eye for putting together tasty crafting treats! Have a great weekend!

Merissa Cherie said...

I'd love to take a craft class inspired by scrapbooking...if that makes any sense. And if you're teaching it Tara, I'd take either one! (^•^) xo, Merissa

Michelle Wooderson said...

Sweet goodies today Tara. It makes me happy when you post. I would love a crafty class. To see how you layer up your goodies would be simply delightful! And I just want you to know how fun it is to see you on the Crate Paper DT.....my favorite papers right now. Ahhhh, sweet bliss.

Danielle said...

Def have to say craft class because I think it could encompass scrapbooking along with much more.

Tina said...

Amy Coose said...

Gorgeous kit! I'd definitely take either, but I guess a craft class would be more beneficial...then I could use all the techniques anywhere and everywhere!

Nitasha said...

Gorgeous kit and love the mason jar! I love scrapbooking but I'd be more inclined to take a craft class because I want to expand my knowledge base and try new things!

Alicia said...

I would love a craft class! Any class by you would be wonderful!

Ohhhhh love the goodies!! I would say craft class. Like I read in other comments, it seems like craft classes offer more techniques and I can carry them over to my scrapbooks. Thanks for the chance to win!!

Lisa Russell said...

I love your little handmade layered stickers! So cute!! I would take a crafty class, since that covers more than just scrapbooking! I love crafting!

Lisa Russell

Miss Kathy said...

I'd like a "crafty" scrapbook class...something crafty I could use on a layout. Love all your valentines and tags. Thanks for a chance to win.

Beth said...

I agree...craft class, too.

Jennifer Chapin said...

Beautiful, Tara! If I had the choice I would do a craft class....maybe learn some new techniques! Thanks for the chance to win!

Jennifer said...

oh goodness...so pretty!! I'd take a scrapbook class :)
Thanks for the chance.

Iara said...

paper craft class for me :) I love your mini albums and the sweet kits you put together, I am always late to purchase one of them when I arrive in your etsy store (probably because of time zone difference). I hope I am lucky and win this one :)

h e a t h e r said...

I would also choose a crafting class. I see myself as an artist and paper is one of my mediums. I think a crafting class would give me the freedom to use my own creativity. Learning new and creative ways to use paper is something I would love to learn. I am also an art teacher so of course whatever I learn I will be passing on to my students. Love it! Thank You!!!!

Heather Jacob said...

I would choose a crafting class for sure I just love OTP projects and I also adore browsing through your wonderful blog .. so much talent lies within you .. thanks for sharing ... hugz x

Patty said...

Oh what a great little kit you put together:)

I would choose a craft class but if you love paper so much maybe it can be a class that incorporates some of that love as well.

theelephantandthebutterfly.blogspot.com said...

Yup, definitely a crafting class. Since I love paper so much, it's what I use all the time. Not that I'd say no to a scrapbooking class (lol), but crafting could be ANYthing!

P.S. I love your stickers, too:) They're one of my favorite things I've ever found on etsy.

P.P.S., I've been listening to "Jar of Hearts" so much I'm starting to drive MYSELF crazy, lol.

clouds shadler said...

I would totally take a craft class, learn how to make those cute embellishments that you make, and where to gather inspiration from (besides the goodies that you make :) Lovely embellies, and fun too, awesome!!!

Thanks,
Clouds :)

Nicole said...

I love scrapbooking but I would choose a class on crafting!

Lori said...

Beautiful giveaway:) Definitely a craft class. I need to step out of my scrapping box:) Thank you;)

Mooninmygarden said...

I would take a craft class because it would be something different. I love to learn new things and scrapbooking is something i do all the time

Britta said...

I'd take a craft class. Thanks for the great give-away!

Penny said...

I swear, everything you make is so amazing! I'd say craft class, too. You could even apply what you learn to scrapbooking, so it's a two for one.

Penny

Happy Weekend xOxO

Digital Misfit said...

hearts and yoyos and flowers! LOVE!

I would definitely choose a craft class. I love working in many different mediums, not just paper. Give me fabric, thread, floss, paint, crayons, etc and I am happy!

Christina C. said...

Ultimately, I think the it would depend on the project. I love your minis, but a craft class might be more versatile. :)

maggie. said...

Such lovely stuff! I'd pick the craft class as it is more versatile, and I could definitely incorporate the techniques into my scrapbook (:

nonnie said...

scrapbook class that focuses on techniques to use in paper crafts....when i think craft, i think about my other crafts...needlepoint, knitting, quilting, jewelry...

Dina said...

I love both, but i tend to take more crafting classes. I like learning lots of different techniques and try new things.

Super cute giveaway!! Thanks for the chance!

Sheri Twing said...

Oh, love the eye candy on your post! I'd pick craft class. I've taken so many scrapbooking classes, I'd love something new. But, if you did offer a scrapbooking class, I'd probably take it! ;)

Rachel M said...

If I had to decide between the two, I'd pick the craft class!

Beautiful giveaway! :)

Little Miss Crafty said...

Hiya, definitely a craft class x

Mai said...

I would definitely say a crafting class!

Natalie Elphinstone said...

oooh tricky one... because although I concentrate mainly on scrapbooking I think I might take the craft class too, hoping that I would learn something that I could apply to lots of different art forms including my scrapbooking :-)

Kre8ive Life said...

Crafting class for me. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE your give away - oh please random number picker, please pick me.

Viv said...

Love Viv

Danielle said...

Thank you so much for this generous giveaway!! For the question.. I LOVE both, so no preferences here..

Danielle

Mary Ann Jenkins said...

I'm in the minority on this one, but I'd have to scrapbooking class. There's nothing better than making a layout for an album. Even if it's a technique I've used a hundred times, scrapbooking would always get my vote. It's my fave :)
Thanks for the chance to win!

Juuli said...

I think i'd choose a crafting class too :)
Such a cute giveaway, thanks for the chance!

jul said...

Craft Class forsure!!! Cute giveway stuff.....I got in a bit of trouble last night trying to leave a comment. Out to dinner with alot of family and got caught typing. They just don't understand stalking....lol!!!! Have a great Sunday!!!Julie

Sara said...

I would want to take a craft class. But maybe with a few ideas that could translate into a layout or card. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Susan said...

I would choose a crafting class for sure! I love your style!! Thanks for the chance to win.

Paper Relics said...

Craft class! But I would want it to still involve paper.

Tanya M said...

Craft class. All those cute flowers that you make, I have been wanting to try my hand at those for a while. It'd be fun to learn.

Cassie said...

Craft class. I like doing scrapbook pages but mostly I do altered items like banners and mini albums.
=)

Sarah said...

Awesome giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win! I'd probably do a crafting class, because you could probably translate what you were learning into something you could incorporate onto a scrapbook page.

Claire said...

I'll pick a craft class for sure, to find out new techniques and enlarge my ideas.

Nerissa Alford said...

I'm going with a craft class. Are you teaching? I'd be there in a heartbeat ;)
Nerissa

fleurfatale said...

the craft class for me!

Marolle said...

crafting class!!
and I would love you as a teacher :)

cindy said...

Crafty class!

xoxo

Rachel said...

Crafting/scrapbook class hybrid is a great idea. I think the newer generation of scrapbookers loves the idea of using non-traditional items to document our memories!

beida-fish said...

I'm game for anything crafty. I'd love to see more crafting classes. Thanks for giving us the chance to win such an adorable kit you put together!

Amy said...

Craft class for sure! Anything "crafted" can always be incorporated into scrapping!! Have a lovely weekend Tara! And thanks again for organizing the Valentine swap...so fun! xoxo
Amy G.

delliechan said...

Definitely a scrapbook class - I have never been to one and Scrapbooking isnt as big here in oZ., I think it would be really fun and a great place to meet like minders crafters :)

emily said...

Scrapbook class....lovin your style!

curlyqmosaics said...

What beautiful Valentine yummies! For me, a craft class since I am a mixed media artist!

alisa logue said...

Oooooooohhhh, 'love'ly goodies! Makes me feel like creating. Hmmm, I am primarily a paper crafter but am dying to learn some new crafts such as encaustic, jewelry making... Anything creative! Thanks for inspiring! - Alisa

Vintage Love and Photographs said...

That's tough. I would say new techniques for scrapbooking.

I Should Be Cleaning Up said...

Beautiful work!!!
I would also pick a crafting class, since the ideas could be used universally. I think developing a wide range of skills is more worth while - makes you more versatile.

Diane B. said...

lovely giveaway! everything is so bright and beautiful. i'd definitely prefer a craft class. sewing, crocheting, and anything else up that alley!

Bonnie said...

craft class...that way you are not limited! Thanks for the Chance Tara!

Renee said...

OMG - I would love to take a craft class from you. I love your style and have a hard time being so free with what I do.

swissgirl said...

i would choose a crafting class :D but if you would host a class, i would take it even if it was about scrapbookind!!! :D
xoxo, rahel

Kelly in Canada said...

very definitely a crafting class because anything i learned could be incorporated back into my papercrafting if i wanted to do so! lovely, lovely treats for the giveaway!

Karey said...

Paper crafting. I have so much that I have collected and would love to use.

Karey said...

I'd go as far as saying the dream mini you posted on 1/25 would be the class I'd take.

glynda roffmann said...

Probably a crafting class... Thank you for the lovely give-aways! Pretty!
