Sponsor Giveaways : Color Inc Digital Pro Lab, Willette Designs, goshery


Three people will win a Spiral Bound Photo Book (your choice of size) from ColorInc.

Spiral Bound Photo Books from ColorInc are one of the most versatile products around. These high-quality books are a combination of their fujifilm pro prints and a black spiral binding. The sturdy cover is mounted on styrene to give the books a professional, finished look. The back cover can either be an additional image mounted on styrene, or a thick black backing. These books are durable and easy to take with you everywhere you go! Seniors love being able to throw them in their backpacks to show off at school. Mom's love to keep one in their purses to brag about their newborn baby. Newly married couples find them efficient for showing of their favorite memories of "the big day".

Spiral bound books come in a variety of sizes, and include a free rounded corner option. You can also choose to take the back print off of the photos.

Two people will receive your choice of a mini album kit (boy or girl theme) from goshery

This month goshery is offering two people the chance to win their choice of two different mini album kits; one for a boy and one for a girl. Perfect for baby gifts, birthday gifts, or to keep yourself, these albums are little gems that can be used to document the life of a special boy or girl, no matter what their age. They would also work well as gifts for grandparents!

Each of the mini album kits has a fabric front and back cover and include paper, embellishments and ribbon that perfectly match the theme of the album. The handmade embellishments include a variety of buttons, stamped images and journaling blocks; the boy themed album comes with a hand sewn mini fabric banner. The mini albums are held together with 1/2" binder rings that open and close so you can take pages out or add pages or additional items by simply punching holes in each item.

goshery (pronounced gosh-ery as in oh my gosh!) is an Etsy shop featuring handmade mini albums, embellishments, cards and more. An empty nester with spare time on her hands, Nancy started goshery as a way to express her creativity and offer handmade scrapbooking items for friends, old and new. A love of paper, color and organization all come together to make mini albums kits that help you document your memories, embellishments to adorn your scrapbook pages and cards that you can use to let the special people in your life know you are thinking about them.

Visit Nancy's blog here and check out a really cute tutorial on how to make a fabric banner here.
