"Blogoversary" Celebration and Gifts!



I started this blog exactly one year ago today - what a year! I have learned so much (and spent so much!), made new "virtual" friends and had a lot of fun creating and sharing designs and preparing and sharing tutorials. I am amazed by the number of people who view my blog regularly (over 180,000 "hits") and download my designs (over 75,000 downloads) and I love to see all of the locations from around the country and around the world that visitors to my blog call home.

To recognize and celebrate my "blogoversary" I am offering a chance to win a few gifts to those who read my blog. All of the gifts relate to calendars and time...

Gift #1



First, I have a complete group of the Studio G Calendar months mini stamp sets - assembled on multiple craft store visits by digging through those bins!



Also included is a lucky 13th set with the full names of each of the months.



Gift #2



Next, I have a Creative Memories Minutes Picfolio Album in the "Playful" design - these are pretty and useful with a great striped cover in pastel colors. The closed album measure 6 x 7 inches. Here is a LINK to the page on my CM Personal Website where you can see more information about the album.



The album is closed with a magnetic strap which can be used to turn the album into a mini easel as demonstrated in the photos above.



There are twelve pages inside (24 sleeves) sized for a 4 x 6 photo on a 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 inch mat - you can use these to make a great desk calendar - above is an example of one I did a few years ago (before I owned a Cricut).

Gift #3



This is a Creative Memories "Mini Moments" set. It was a Memory Keepers Club prize and never available for purchase. The set comes in a nice tin which can be used to store all sorts of things.



Inside there are 12 calendar mats which have the grids printed in different sizes on either side. (the calendar mats are currently available to purchase - here is a LINK to the page on my CM website if you want more information)



There are also 12 sheets of 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 inch paper (above) and an idea sheet (below)



Inside the tin, there are also two small magnetic backed lidded containers and an exclusive hole punch.



Here is another view of the tins and the hole punch - it cuts a rough edged swirl and a zig zag edge sunburst shape.



So, if you want to help me celebrate and perhaps win one of these items, here is what you need to do...

Please leave a comment by clicking on the "comments" at the bottom of this post (an example showing where to click is below) - a box will pop up for you to type in your comment and name.



You can also comment on the post on the Cricut Message Board which is LINKED HERE (this is just in case you have trouble leaving comments on blogger sites - I prefer that you comment here to make it easier for me when it is time to do the drawing). Only comments made in one of these two places will be included, so, if you are a subscriber and receive my posts by email, please do not reply to the email to enter the drawing - it won't work!

If you already own any of these items, or are only interested in one or two of them, please note this in your comment. Please also be sure to identify yourself if you are posting as "anonymous" by leaving your name (real or message board) in the comment.

If you have read my blog for a while you know that my lucky numbers are three and seven - there are three prizes and the time to comment will remain open for seven days - on February 8th I will choose a winner for each prize using a random method - you can only win once but there will be three separate drawings so you have a chance for each prize (unless you ask not to be included in one or two of them).

I will keep a link to this post at the top of my blog for the next seven days to make it easier to comment.

Thank you all for being part of my blogging world - I hope that you are enjoying the work I share and that you are actually using it for your personal projects, cards and albums. I always appreciate seeing how people have used my designs so, if you are willing to share any photos, I'd love to see them (you can email me at capadiadesigns@gmail.com).

Thanks again - I am looking forward to continuing my attempt to meet my goal to post daily this year (my version of "Project 365") and there will be some changes in format and interesting new projects coming soon...

Enjoy the Super Bowl tonight (if you are watching it instead of crafting)!

  9. Your work is so inspiring. Thanks. Those presents would make a great 60th birthday present for me on February 8. I think I lurk on sites trying to learn about Cricut than actually doing anything on it. I bought my CE & DS at a convention in August '08 but there is no local store to get instructions and ask questions to.

Each time I save a little scrap or place a tiny scrap on my mat to cut just one tiny thing, I think of you. Learning just how to place my paper on my mat to save so much was from you. Thanks again and may you have a wonderful year ahead on your blog.

  155. HI Diane,
    I am still learning as my cricut expressions is only a few weeks old and I now have my DS software. I am even getting a laptop to make things work better and more smoothly.
    You have one of the best sites I have seen!! Very clear, concise and a flair for design. It helps us who hope to make beautiful things in the future feel like we can. Happy anniversary, keep up the great work and I look at your site every weekday, (I try not to be on the computer much over the weekend.)

  159. Diane, Thank you so much for all the time you put into creating all the scrap art for us. I had bought the DS and never did anything with it(wasn't sure how to do it)and I happened on your blog and using it with your creations gave me courage to try on my own. I will try to design the overlays one of these days. Can't wait to make the Eagle Scout frame for my nephew. Congrats on one year and thank you for sharing with us. Linea
