One year ago today, I started seriously crafting and blogging about it! I can’t believe its only been a year as I have learnt soooo much and come so far. I went from not even knowing what stamping or die cutting meant, to creating my own shadow box designs for my Etsy shop and registering myself as a small business here in Germany. (Yes I never do things half measured!)
I am now a passionate, (even obsessed my hubby would say!) card maker and I owe all this to all you fellow crafters and bloggers out there. Without your tutorials, videos, tips and supportive comments, I would have given up a long time ago I think. In this digital world of ours, it is so nice to see so many people still taking the time and love to make hand crafted cards, tags and objects.
So I wanted to say thank you by hosting my first giveaway! I was very hesitant to do this as I’ve only been around blogger world for such a short time, but I think theres never a bad time to say thank you is there? And my daughter said it was a good idea too, so that was all the encouragement I needed!
So all you have to do to win this personal giveaway, with free shipping included, of
- Marta Stewart’s circle edge punch
- 2 cartridges to use with it
- 2 Memory Box love dies
- 1 hearts and roses shadow box card designed and made by me

I will announce the winner on the same day on Instagram and on my blog!
And if you’re already an avid follower of mine on all the above, I thank you from the bottom of my heart! Just leave a comment here saying you are already following me and I will add you into the draw.
I am also recycling my first die cutting machine and its dies, by giving it to the friend you tagged on my Instagram account. Maybe this will help a new crafter get started in the amazing world of scrapbooking and card making! The box looks shabby but I’ve only used it twice, as I had forgotten I had it when I bought my Big Shot Plus, so it still works perfectly!
Just to let you know how ignorant I was when I first started, when I bought this above machine, I thought it was to make my own dies and I didn’t know how to use it for a very long time! I also remember I went to a scrapbooking class in France and while everyone had papers and ideas to start their project, I went wanting to learn what scrapbooking was! The poor teacher was really frustrated with me when she realised I didn’t even know what to do with the one photo I brought!!
All this to say that EVERYTHING can be learnt if you are passionate about it and have great teachers to learn from.
So once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you out there and
