Craft Stash Giveaway – 14

January 14, 2020 — 51 Comments

Die cutters, this is the one for you! Today there are FOUR sets of new and unused dies for me to give away.

Many thanks again to everyone that has taken part in these so far. I really enjoyed reading your comments and will take some time out soon to respond.

The stash is depleting too!

Ok, on with the giveaway for this week.

This week one lucky winner will bag themselves four sets of dies from The Paper Boutique as shown below.

So, here is what you have to do.

Comment on this blog post below. Not on Facetwit or anywhere else, just here.

It can be anything. The comment itself doesn’t count for anything other than me being nosy so feel free to tell me what the weather is like where you are, what you are having for dinner, a funny story about the cat/dog or hamster, what you are making at the moment; basically, just pop a comment below so that I know you are interested and, next week I will draw a name at random from those that have commented and that person will get the item(s) featured above.

– One winner will be picked at random.
– Prizes can only be sent to a UK address.
– Prizes will be sent via a signed-for delivery service.
– No cash alternatives, because I spent all of my cash on the stuff that I am giving away.
– Only comments made on this blog post will count.
– The draw for this particular giveaway will take place a little later than normal as the draw date is Christmas day and I will be drunk and/or asleep.

Oh, and hey, if you fancy sharing this post with some of your artsy-craftsy chums, that would also be very much appreciated.

Right, it’s time for me to get back to making stuff. Have a great day and I look forward to hearing what you have to say!

Bye for now.
J :) x

    Morning John, I love using frames and sentiments. They take a simple piece of card to another level, obv with the addition of a few embellishments. Happy crafting.

    Hi John, Bit late entering, hope I’m in time! The dies are a fantastic give away! Thank you.



    Hi, hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year. Roll on more crafting in 2020.



    Excellant Giveaway, Thanks John



    Lovely frames John – I can see there are many times when they would be useful. couldn’t read the words, but they are always useful. Its time to make my brother-in-law a birthday card I always want it to be a little bit special. My mind is blank, but one look at Pinterest and I shall have lots of ideas.



    Hi John, Hope your well? Very grey and murky here today so having a relaxing day.
    So having just been very fortunate to receive a big shot plus for my impending birthday, it would be great to have a lovely set of dies to use in them.
    Many thanks for your generosity. Have a good day. Naomi x
    (Oh P.s Terms – The draw for this particular giveaway will take place a little later than normal as the draw date is Christmas day and I will be drunk and/or asleep.) :/



    What a lovely lot of dies you are giving away. Had a minor op yesterday to remove some cancer so a bit painful today and weather not good either. Hope to do some crafting again in a few days time.



    The dies look beautiful. I wish I could read the words. You are so creative and I really appreciate all the stuff you share with us.

    Well it’s raining cats and dogs , been out to do one of my jobs . Secret shop and got caught in an accident and tree down . Got home and bloody second power cut but no worries hubby bought me a hat with a light in so I can still crochet . Have a good evening and so glad you came out from under the duvet at Christmas xxx



    Hi John, lovely dies. Thanks for the chance to win. Not been a good year so far, as have lost a relative and a friend since the New Year, so struggling to find much enthusiasm for anything at the moment, but I’m getting there slowly, and replying to your blog is a start. Small steps and all that. Kath x



    This is a very generous giveaway John! It’s very kind of you. I really don’t need any more dies but can’t resist the opportunity! Wxx



    Just having a rest after painting with my hubbie in our utility room. Keeping busy as the storm has arrived with us today, so gardening (which is my favourite past time) is not an option. Would love to give the dies a new home!lol TIA x



    Wow fantastic John you can come and sort my craft room out too if you want 😆 mine needs a total de-clutter. Which is what I’m on with this week 😫. I’m glad I don’t have to go out as it’s absolutely pouring down here in County Durham. Better than the recent storm we’ve had though.

    Love these dies John. You are so clever and kind. I took the scan n cut academy course but not done much. its not the course, you explain everything really well. It’s my computer skills holding me back. Me and technology don’t mix. Keep up the good work and thank you. x

    Wet and grey here! These dies would certainly brighten my day!! Fingers crossed! 🤞

    Hi john, you are so generous at this rate you wont have much left apart from what you use all the time!
    You are so talented I wish you could send some to me, having a few problems at the moment, and cant even think about going into my craft room, have bought a few things hoping to give me a boost and a few ideas! Thanks for the opportunity. You are such a gent.
    Louise xx



    Just finIshed a cross stitch project of a dachshund for a friend’s birthday. These dies would frame my project beautifully.



    I think this is the first time I have ever commented on someone’s blog. I’m a bit disconcerted to see you aren’t considering choosing someone until after Christmas Day as that is 11 months and 11 days away!



    Wet and windy, so what am I doing just just sitting looking out the window thinking what to do first, have breakfast, shower or craft, which ever I do first will result in a day crafting, have a good day all x



    Not been very well for a couple of weeks so not even ventured in to my craft cave – would love to win these to get me started again.
    Thanks for the opportunity. X



    My goodness John. You are so kind!
    With Christmas now out of the way I am now making birth cards (2 now imminent), wedding cards (4 in Feb) and, of course, we start all over again with birthday cards. As my daughter is now with a huide dig fir the blind, i shall be making cards for their charity.
    I would love to win those beautiful dies to help me build up my die kit.
    Have a wonderful 2020.

    Hi John hope you are well. What a brill give away again. I have been trying to tidy up my craft space over Christmas and finally had time to do some crafting yesterday I love cards with frames and sentiments so fingers crossed XX



    John you are one very generous gentleman not only sharing your talents with us crafters but also giving away dies thank you



    Hi John

    Don’t know if you remember fixing a Christmas tree file design for me at the Peterborough Scan N Cut workshop. I used it this year for my card and it was well received so thanks again for your help.



    Hello there. I only found this blog a short while ago – but I find it fascinating and informative. You put so much work into it John. I must find a bit of time to look at all the other crafting that you get into.

    Bleak, wet, and miserable down south in Fareham today! This giveaway would be cheering up the winner!



    Hi John I feel that I need something like your give away to cheer me up as my new craft room (shed) has gone an got a leaking roof which iam now going to spend my money on instead on my crafty stuff thanks.



    Good morning John. Another fantastic giveaway. Thank you for your generosity.



    A lovely giveaway again. How lovely. More gale force winds today. Not good when you have to walk the dog under a lot of trees which is what it’s like on our estate. Lovely in the summer though. X



    A bit belated, but Happy New Year John. This is a lovely set you are giving away, what a prize. It’s grey and chilly in Berkshire, with heavy rain due later. Some crafting to get on with today. Take care of yourself xx



    I’m just up so have a bit of brain fog but focused on your blog lol



    Good morning John! What a great giveaway, you’re very generous 😊 Thank you for the opportunity to win these useful dies xx

Everyone chain ready now apart from first in chain. So packing suspended . Have been crafting to take mind off it all so making birthday cards for family and friends in coming months. Thank you for chance to win. HAve a lovely day x

    Great giveaway thank you John


    JACQUELINE HARDY January 14, 2020 at 8:27 am

    Love reading your updates John, and learn so much to improve my crafting and try new stuff. Crafty hugs x



    Hi ya John, I have 6 net curtains to machine today (which I hate doing) for my niece and her boyfriend but after that I will relax making some cards . Have a great day



    Just read your post. Have been doing birthday cards for 3 grand children plus just started trying to clear my desk area of cards from Christmas and some stamps . w=What a job it is, however might make room so I can make more cards to use up those scraps of paper lying about. Will take at least a couple of days to sort out and that’s only the desk. Will take a couple of weeks to clear up the rest of the bedroom, where I have my craft things.



    Hi are u having a late Xmas (see rules)?
    One year we saved one present each and in Feb when brother visited from USA we cooked turkey with trimmings, got out Xmas table cloth, crackers etc. Played carols and had great stress free Xmas including present, Xma pud and Queens speech which we found online!
    But enough of that I’m off to do some crafting….



    Morning John, Hope you are well. What a generous giveaway.
    I would love to win these dies as I don’t have any Paper Boutique dies.
    I’m off to my Pilates class this morning, trying to get back to normal after the Christmas break



    Morning John,
    hope you are well. I would love to win these dies. The weather here has been very windy & rainy but I expect it isn’t as bad as the weather where you are. Enjoy your making & thank you for the chance to win this lovely stash X


    Pauline Roberts January 14, 2020 at 7:58 am

    Please put me ‘in the hat’ John. My comment is a sob story for today as I am having a fasting blood test done in a couple of hours and myself and needles don’t get on! Methinks I will take a good chunk of Green & Blacks chocolate with me to lessen the pain for afterwards 🙂



    Beautiful prize John. I am hopefully making a card for son’s fiancee birthday today. The weather is calm and dry at present. For lunch I am pondering between poached eggs on toast or soup. Have a great day xx Hazel



    Morning John, have missed a few off your stash offers as been quite poorly. Feeling better now so off to card class this morning 😁 it’s the first one since way before Christmas so excited to go today. Would love to be part of this giveaway. Happy New Year to you 🎉🎊 xx



      Morning John
      Storm Brendan is with us down in Southsea so today will mostly be an indoors day. That’s okay as I have some cards to make for a friend and lots to read. Just need to be sure there’s enough coffee to keep me going.
      Wishing you a very happy New Year, Helen



    A wonderful giveaway John. Thanks for the opportunity to win it. It’s almost light here in Liverpool, I expect it’s already light ‘oop north’ with you. I hope your gardening project is going well. Clare x


    Pamela Swadling January 14, 2020 at 7:37 am

    what a fabulous give away John. Hope you didn’t sustain any damage in yesterday’s storm. Think we only caught the tail end of it here on the East Coast, Have a great day x



    You have been busy depleting your stash. Thanks for the opportunity to help you. Ha Ha
