Blog Candy! Easy to WIN!

To celebrate my Etsy opening, I am hosting a blog candy giveaway and the winner gets to choose one of my kits as their prize, plus I will include a few little embellies from the upcoming September Scrap That! kit. Here are just a few examples of my Etsy kits... but please visit the shop listed under my full name vickyalberto at http://www.etsy.com/shop/vickyalberto to see all that is available. Read the details in this post to find out how to win one too!


All the kits feature a handmade flower and acid-free paper crafting products. My goal is to offer high quality items at reasonable prices. I have taken great lengths to ensure all items are archival safe for scrapbooking - especially when it comes to paper doilies.


A lot of the products are unique finds like crocheted lace & flowers, others are popular brand name items such as Prima & Tattered Angels. Some of us love certain products but can't justify buying the full box or spool it comes in. Now, you can buy a little bit of everything to your taste for that special project. Plus, adding a second kit to your order only costs and extra 25 cents!

BABY GIRL - $8.75

Each kit is designed to embellish two scrapbook pages and they come in a variety of themes. Every new customer gets an extra embellie added to their kit too!

BABY BOY - $8.75

So how do you win a kit of your choice?

Simply go to my Etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/vickyalberto to view all the kits listed so far... then, come back here to my blog and leave me a message telling me:

1. Which kit you would like to win and why you like it the best
2. What kinds of embellies (i.e. flowers, bling, chipboard etc.) you use the most in your crafting projects
3. Don't forget to become a follower of this blog too!

The winner will be drawn on Tuesday, September 7th, good luck!

In the meantime, check out this sneak peek collage of the upcoming September Scrap That! kit projects to be revealed by the design team (this week on August 26th). This kit has been a BLAST to design with and I think my FAVE so far.

All your kits are gorgeous. My fave is Baby Boy - I have 6 grandsons. Love the butterfly. I like to use flowers and bling. I don't use ribbon or lace as often, but have a collection of both.

Elisabeth said...

I love chipboard in all kinds and shapes, best with matching pearls.
Love the baby girl kit!

Hey Vicki! Congrats on your store opening! Your kits are beautiful! I love the heritage kit, it just captured my heart with the softness and detailing of the elements. I use a lot of flowers and chipboard in my layouts, and lately i'm into using metal textures. I've been a follower for a while!

1. I would love to win The Heritage Kit, as it is so elegant, and the added bling just makes it even more special. I can already picture an old fashioned photo nestling in that squaree doily frame. Beautiful

2. At the moment, I'd say I use flowers the most, as I'm constantly discovering new ways to use them.

3. I am a follower of your blog.

Thanks for your generosity and all the best with your new Etsy venture.

Fabulous kits Vicky, they're all great but my favs would have to be the heritage and baby girl kits. Your paper flowers are just stunning and the kits have been put together really beautifully.

Good luck with your new venture.

All of the kits are fab..it'd be hard to choose but I love the Heritage one. Tho all ur kits fit my style, the Heritage would be my pick because of the square doily, and the chipboard accents included.

My favourite would be the Baby boy kit. Such a great combination of products. I love that butterfly, and those crochet flowers. My sister just had her first baby (a boy) and this would be perfect for making a layout or two for her.
My favourite embellishments to use are butterflies and doilies. So versatile.
Oh, and I've been following for a while now :-)

Lesley Langdon said...

BEAUTIFUL kits, love those flowers! I like Victorian Rose kit the best and love to use FLOWERS on MOST of my layouts, and I will definitely follow your blog. ;)

I love all of your beautiful kits and it is hard to select one, but it would be the baby girl. My granddaughter is not a baby any longer but the pinks still work for any age. Right now flowers are my favorite embellishment. I am a follower.
