It’s tax day… April 15, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — jyeger @ 2:10 pm

Do you know what that means?  A GIVEAWAY!!!

I have been so excited to share this kit from Scrap Scription!  Lori is a local gal that teaches at B&B (one of our local stores) – she creates some awesome stuff!  Last fall, Lori and her friend Candy decided to start a kit company.  This isn’t an ordinary kit company…they offer very specific projects with lots of fun goodies included!  Check out this ADORABLE card box using the Minestrone line! 




I’ve got one to giveaway!!!  Hmmm, should I make you work for this one…heck no, it’s tax day!  Just leave a comment about cards – do you make them?  Do you have a favorite site for inspiration?  Do you hoard them like me and never send the ones you make? 

The winner will be picked via the IRS (ha!) or on Saturday April 18th at 9:00 EST.  Good Luck and thanks in advance for participating?

    What an adorable kit… I love how all the colors of the Minestrone line just pop out next to the black! What a fun way to celebrate Tax day!

    I love making cards just to tell a friend hi and that I’m thinking about them. I’m convinced that there is nothing better than receiving a card in the mail just because someone was thinking of you. 🙂

  2. Anita Says:

    Love the colors in this line!! I make a lot of cards- usually at the last minute when it hits me that someone’s b-day is just days away. I keep saying I am going to make a stash ahead of time to cut down on the stress, but it never seems to happen 🙂

  3. Janet B Says:

    I love this kit! The colors are gorgeous! I’m an avid card maker–it’s my passion. I love to give awaymy cards, but I do have a big stash. Right now I’m trying out the SCS challenge to use pop cans on your cards…it’s tons of fun! Who knew?!!!

  4. Christi Says:

    cute kit! I love sending cards. I’m trying to get better at making some to have on hand for last minute mailing.

  5. Andi M Says:

    I occasionally make cards. I’d like to get in the habit of making them more often so I have a stash to use when an occasion arises.

  6. Amy Coose Says:

    What a great kit! I am not the best card maker. It stresses me out to have to make something that small. (:

  7. Regan Says:

    oooh yes I love cards, I make a ton of them, I am a maker not a giver though…LOL!!

    I like using sketches.

  8. rebecca k Says:

    I do make ’em, but not fast enough to keep up with all the holidays, bdays, thank you’s etc. I need to make them in my down time so I have a stock pile!

  9. jodi Says:

    I make them sometimes, but not very often. I like Papercrafts Magazine for card inspo.

    Just commenting – not for the giveaway since I won the last one. 🙂

  10. Tracey Says:

    What a fantastic kit! Would love to win! I am new to cardmaking but am addicted already! I do give some away but I have a little stash that I hoard as well! 🙂

  11. Cass Says:

    I love making cards. I have been making more cards than scrap pages lately. And I do manage to send them out too! 🙂

  12. Sarah Says:

    Awesome kit…and yes, I’m a card horder.
    I have been forcing myself to give away those
    cards that have been hanging out in their box
    for a while now, and I really do enjoy making
    all of the kids cards for birthdays and holidays!!

  13. carriegel Says:

    One of my goals this year is to make my cards instead of buying them. I like Kristina Werner’s site for inspiration.

  14. Diana Says:

    yep, make my own cards!

  15. I absolutely love this kit! I started to make more cards recently…but I have to say that I am starting a collection cause I just don’t want to part with them. Card Trends is my favorite for inspiration.

  16. Jennifer Says:

    I’ve only recently started making cards and I love the personal touch it sends when you give someone a beautiful handmade card. This is a great kit!!!

  17. DJP Says:

    I love making cards, but I haven’t made as many as usual since moving to the OHIO…and I too hoard my faves for fear that I won’t be able to “recreate” it. All my cards have my signature mark on the back too….kinda like my “hallmark” seal 🙂

  18. Very cute kit. I love making cards. At first it started as a way to use up my scraps, but lately I find myself just making cards.

  19. Tina Says:

    I love that kit! I have been meaning to make a box to put all of the cards I hoard (yeah, I tend to keep them) in. I love making cards more than anything and have tried to start sending out the ones I have made. For two years now I have made enough Christmas cards to send out and have not sent a one!!!

  20. I LOVE to make cards! I actually just posted a Jillibean Soup card to my blog today. My favorite card mags are Paper Crafts and CARDS.

  21. Tracy Says:


  22. CB Says:

    What an awesome kit! I do make cards – I don’t like to buy cards anymore b/c I think of all the scrap I could be using on cards! My fave place for card sketches is pagemaps, and the Hero Arts blog has some wonderful inspiration for cards too. Thanks for the chance to win! Cute name for the site, too “scrap scription” – definitely a cure for what ails you! 🙂

  23. Jill,
    I agree… it’s pretty awesome. I make cards and like you, horde them, but also send them… part of the fun for me is designing for a specific recipient and having lost everything to Hurricane Katrina, I now hate to hold on too tightly to anything. Thanks for sharing this new kit with us.

  24. Gracie Says:

    I love making cards! I usually get inspiration from magazines and card blogs. One favorite is Card Patterns .

  25. summer robinson Says:

    I love making a scrapbook page and then making a card with my scraps, it always keeps my creativity going and my scraps dont completely over run my table.

  26. Kim Arnold Says:

    I love making cards and have struggled in the past to give up my creations. But I realise how much pleasure they give and now I just make sure I give the really detailed ones to the people who really treasure them and I make simplier ones for kids birthdays etc.

  27. Holly Says:

    I love that kit! I do enjoy making cards, thanks to Jillibean. Creating cards always seemed daunting until Jill held her first “class”. And now I see how they can be a quick craft that makes you feel like you’ve accomplished something.

  28. Amber Says:

    I love making cards, but I have a hard time giving them away!!!! That is an awesome kit, thanks for the chance to win it!!!

  29. Grace M Says:

    I’m just starting out on making cards. And I realise that I work better on smaller spaces, though of course, I won’t be giving up my layouts soon! Actually, I just made 2 cards last night using Jillibean Soup papers 🙂

  30. Daria Says:

    This kit is even better in person. I love all the cards Lori put together for it! Thanks for another great giveaway! 🙂

  31. Great give away it would sure be nice to have a few more from that collection, I make cards, but only with my scrap bits i’t a good way to use leftovers!!

  32. Lisa Says:

    I definitely make cards. It’s where I started. :O) thanks for the chance to win!

  33. K8an Says:

    Wonderful kit! I make cards when I have someone to give them to, the inspiration to them I usually get on a Swedish blog “”.

  34. Dawn Says:

    That is adorable! Cards are actually the one scrappy item I have the most trouble with…I think this kit would be perfect for me!

  35. Delia W Says:

    I only make cards on a VERY rare occasion.. I think I should do it more often. Kit delights…

  36. Sammye Jo Says:

    OMG- I am not the only one who makes cards and keeps them for the “perfect event/person” which never comes 🙂 hahaha. I love checking out the Scrapbook and Cards Today Blog. Kimber from your design team is featured this week 🙂 LOVE this card box set. Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  37. Jamie Dones Says:

    I would love to win this kit – it’s so cute, and I really need a place to store all the cards I make!

  38. {vicki} Says:

    I love making cards. I like being able to personalize them for the particular person I am sending them to.

  39. Julie Batta Says:

    Oh, wow! What a great kit.

    I love to make cards. Lately it has been taking over my scrapbooking but it is tempting to be able to make a card in half the time I make a LO. I actually do send out the cards I make, well, most of them. And for inspiration, I love to visit a variety of blogs, it is incredible what some people can come up with.

  40. missey Says:

    I want this kit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh as for cards, let’s see….I try to make them 🙂 I love card swaps and I never send the ones I make. (I usually don’t even make one for me when I am in a swap)
    I also like to keep my favs for that special person 🙂

  41. Judy T Says:

    That is an awesome kit! I’m just getting into card making and am having fun sending them to my friends on their birthdays! Thanks for the chance to win!

  42. Jillian Says:

    I really want to make cards in advance! I always end up throwing something together last minute when I realize I forgot someone’s birthday. Then they never look the way I want them to.
    Thanks for the chance to win this awesome kit!

  43. Sarah W. Says:

    OOhh! Thanks for the chance at a giveaway. I am just starting into making cards. Mostly so I can use up my precious scraps!

  44. abbie c. Says:

  48. wow. what a nicely packed kit for card making. cards: i always try to have a variety on hand to use – hand-made of course!

  49. Karen Says:

    I have been making cards for about 15 years…long before scrapbooking became my passion. For 12 of those 15 years, I made my own Chistmas cards and Christmas Thank-yous and practically every card that I sent (which is a lot). I made all of my kids announcements (stamped & heat embossed) when they were born. I do send them but I do hoard too. I actually bought a turning rack from a store that was going out of business so that I would have a place to store my cards & see them easily. Right now, I have about 150 cards ready to send and I just gave my mom 20 and donated another 20 to church to be sent as needed. I love stamping!!!!

    By the way, I saw this sample at B&B a few weeks ago and it is even cuter than it looks. If you don’t win it, everyone should buy it!!!!

  50. Jackie Says:

    Wow! What an awesome kit! I would love it – yes! I do make lots of cards! I love sending them out! Thanks for the chance to win!

  51. Leigh Says:

    Cute kit!!

  52. Dani Says:

    Cute cute cute! I need it 🙂 I LOVE to make cards and scrapbook layouts, so this kit would be a perfect addition to my stash 🙂

  53. jan mosier Says:

    I absolutely love this kit! Yes, I love making my own cards. It is so gratifying knowing that something as simple as a handmade card can brighten someone’s day. I also love receiving cards, and I hope whomever wins this kit sends me one. lol.

  54. naniree2 Says:
