Some Candy Whilst I'm Away...

Yipee, I'm heading off to Crete for a break in the sun. I've been busy creating and making posts ready for my time away and hoping that auto-scheduling behaves! So while I'm away, I thought I'd offer some long awaited blog candy.


Over the next few days, I'm going to be showcasing a new release from Bugaboo which is a Goofy Ghost Set. I've made a few Halloween treat/gift holders to show. So the prize for the candy is a pack of various kits so that you can recreate them yourself. The set will contain:
a range die cuts for 3D items
hand stamped backing panels (cut to size)
images for adorning
(Jodie from Bugaboo has kindly donated the ENTIRE
GOOFY GHOSTS SET for me to give away, Thank you so much)
metal embellishments
You'll be able to make shaker boxes, carry all boxes, door hanger treat holders... All you will need is a pair of scissors and adhesive. I will even include some completes projects too and a load of other suprise items/embellishments too.

I don't have a pic of the finished candy as I will modify the contents to the winner's wishes - that's right, you can decide what colours you'd like, which shapes you'd prefer etc. But here's a couple of the kits made up in readiness:


What do you need to do to win this candy? Well simply copy the notice (the orange poster panel) above into a post on your blog with a link back to here to advertise the give away. Then comment on here to let me know you've done it.

BUT there's another way you can enter and increase your chances of winning! A few weeks ago, I posted a tutorial on how to make my door hanging treat holder - they're really easy to make but really effective. What I'd like you to do is to use the tutorial to create your own version. If you make one and tell me about it here so I can come and see it, I will enter you into the draw 3 times! There's a link to my treat holder tutorial in my sidebar or you can click HERE to be taken there. So if you make a notice of the candy with the poster above and make a treat holder, you will have 4 entries!

So keep an eye out on the posts to come in the next few days to see the kinds of things you'll be able to make. Pardon? You want a sneak peek? Well, as you asked so nicely, here you go:

 


You have until Saturday, 18th of September to enter and I shall announce the winner on Saturday the 19th.
So what are you waiting for, go and spread the word and start your treat holders now!

EDIT : I have decided to extend the Candy until the end of the month as I realised I hadn't really given enough time for people to find and make their projects and so it will now run until the 30th September. I shall announce the winner in early October. Hope this helps some of you out.
See you all when I get back.
