A De-Stash Giveaway !

Hello everyone! It feels good to be posting again, I have been at the organizing stage for awhile now and I am ready to give it a rest!
The latest items to be organized have been my Vintage Children’s Greeting Cards…..I have two really nice We R Memory 5.5 x8.5 binders that Elizabeth from Creative Breathing told me about, I have a sweet buttercup yellow for everything other than Christmas and Valentines Day, and a red that those two holidays are going into…

I thought for sure one of each would do it….silly me! I loaded two cards back to back in each sleeve, but pretty soon the book was just too full!

I had to order some more, and of course they have changed the style to this:


40382_100 They hold the same sleeves just look different…..


I hate that! My perfectionism rears it’s ugly head at times like this….but I just have to deal with what is……





Here is the buttercup yellow…..


40372_100





I got 1 more yellow and 1 more red…..we will see how many they hold….:)



OK….so I have some wonderful COSMO CRICKET Papers that I did not use and so I don’t need them any longer….and I decided to have a giveaway for them…..

Hello Sunshine 12x12 Set and 1 mini deck (shaped at the bottom of the pages and they are all 8x8)

and 1 mini deck of Jolly by Golly…..


I have not used any of the papers in the sets, but I know me, and I HAVE to de-clutter! I am sure I will be doing this again! So just leave a comment on this post and I will draw a winner next Monday the 30th at 6:00 PM my time ( MST) Good luck to everybody!





Thanks for stoppin’ by….:)

It always feels so good to me to declutter too. I like how you are organizing the cards. I have saved every card that was given to my sons for each holiday...and I have them in a box...30 years of cards for them is a lot...maybe I should try something like that!

I bet those binders look just wonderful displayed together, because the colors are so YOU! I wish I could get organized. I tried a couple of months ago, but I got bored, so I quit!

Diane Mars said...

I love the way you are organizing your Greeting cards mine are in various piles... I should do something better, love those folders. You have a great collection, and you know me and my love for vintage greeting cards. Oh yes add my name to your hat.. fingers crossed until Monday. oxox, Diane

I don't enter many give-aways but I love these papers so please put my name in the hat.
Thanks for the idea on storing the cards. I don't have too many yet. I'll be on the lookout for a binder to keep them pretty.

GardenofDaisies said...

Where did you get the binders? Those would work nicely for some of my paperdolls!

Angela said...

I love their papers!..and I'm a clutterer, not a declutterer!!

Paula Clare said...

I LOVE Cosmo cricket...and you KNOW I LOVE your cards and vintage goodies...howEVER do you keep it all organized? I'm afraid my destash and declutter would have to take on monumental proportions before I could even BEGIN the organizing! But it's SO FUN to have such cool things to keep and look through, isn't it?

Ann Marie said...

ooohh I love your blog!!! Your colors are MINE (reds/whites/blues) gingham and CHERRIES GALORE!!! I love cherries - my kitchen is red with white accents and tons of cherry accessories and curtains! The CC paper is wonderful and I'd love to add those to my growing collection! Thanks for the chance to win!

Yum! Please count me in! I'm just wild about Cosmo Cricket and I have no idea where to find those papers. Thanks for the chance! Still trying to figure out how to ship the wallpaper to you without smashing it! :)

Linda said...

How fun! I love the idea of a de-stash giveaway...I imagine we could ALL hold one of those! I love how you're organizing your greeting cards...I could spend hours just flipping the pages looking at them!

Nan said...

Oh me thinks your binders will work just fine. You can de-clutter your papers with me anytime.

I love the binder idea. I'm planning to reorganize my stuff this weekend. I've accumulated so much, that the word "hoarder" has crossed my mind a few times lately. BUT, I LOVE all of my craft supplies! I feel inspired by your recent de-stashing. I would be happy to take the paper off your hands....:) Thank you for offering this give-away.

Wow, I can't believe you're giving away such great papers! Count me in, please :) Love those binders for your greeting cards, but know how you feel about the changes. I use CM scrapbook binders & they're constantly changing the colors - drives me crazy!

Thanks for the nudge!

Sandy,
I'm your newest follower! Oh, how I wish your organizing and decluttering would magically come through the computer and rub off on me! I started cleaning and organizing early spring, and I kind of lost steam! Well, a girl's got to plant her garden, right? Anyhow, I was admiring your blog again, looking at your post, and to my surprise saw Ric Rac and Polka Dots on your list of "Blogs That Inspire Me". I was so excited!!! Thank you so much for that. Would you mind if I display your button on my blog? Keep up the wonderful work and inspirational posts, we need it! Please come visit my blog again, now that it's up I'll start getting some posts going. I have tons of fun stuff planned.
Thanks again,
Julie

Have a beautiful eve ~

Hugs,
Marydon

Love the binders for the cards. I have many from my Grandmother and even her mother. Need to store them like that.

Cosmo Cricket has the best colors and designs ever.

Thanks so much for sharing! And wish I had your organization skills. I hate parting with pretties.

I love organizing and dejunking, but I bring it in as fast as I take it out. LOL! What can I say? I just love too many things. Love your vintage cards! I know I shouldn't, but enter me please. Those papers are way cute!

Suz said...

Sandy,
The notebooks are a great idea! I am struggling to be more organized, too. And it is hard to be organized when you have too many things!!! Still I love Cosmo Cricket and would love to be entered into your give-away!

Hi again,
Call me crazy, but I can't find your button to post on my page. Where is it on your blog? Thanks!
Julie

Dapoppins said...

Is it give-away time yet? am I too late, I stop by for a Memorial day visit and then I see this! Is this just to punish me for not stopping by more often?

I wish I had your awesome ability to de-clutter and not hoard, but when it comes to papers, one can never have enough.
