On my Desk - Giveaway


Hello and happy Friday! Chase and I have been out running errands  all morning and we came back to the house just to get this post up! I was sorting through some supplies last week to make myself a little to-go scrapbook kit for the road and thought it would be fun to giveaway a few extras! 



 Each kit includes random bits n bobs of this and that - some handmade and some vintage. My personal favorites are the messy fabric/string embellishments, handmade paper stickers and the text book pages! You can't go wrong with vintage fabric, trims and flashcards either, you can incorporate any of these pieces into your mini scrapbooks or even on a layout.  



I have 3 travel kits to give away, just leave a comment below and I'll be back on Tuesday to post 3 lucky winners! **Feel free to tell me about your summer travel plans! I'll be talking alot about mine in the coming week! :)**

 Have a wonderful weekend!! xo ~ Tara

these are lovely! this summer we are going to be settling into our first new house, after 11 years in our current one, and after the move we'll be going to my boyfriend's family cabin down in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Maybe I can also plan a quick getaway to Portland, but we'll see. Happy Friday!

I just found your blog through the Crate Paper blog and had to add it to my google reader. I know I will be visiting often for inspiration!

These are beautiful little goodies you've put together! :) Our summer plans include a week at the beach this year. It will be the first time we've ever had a vacation that's just us... no family or friends to visit. I'm pretty excited! I hope that you'll post a picture of what's in your travel kit. I'm hoping to make a mini album of ours and would love to get some ideas!

Maria said...

Amazing kit!!!! :) summer plans=beach & beach!!!! :)

So beautiful. Peach, frilled flowers and text. What a lovely, thoughtful giveaway! We are traveling to Idaho this summer, we can't wait to play by the lake and escape the Arizona heat. We look forward to hearing your summer plans!

Gale said...

I live in Northern New York and this summer we are traveling to London, Scotland & Paris. My first trip "across the pond." So excited.

Angela said...

I'm always so inspired by your work! It makes me want to go buy an entirely new paper stash. My only plan so far is going a few hours north to Vancouver, BC, for a weekend!

Beautiful kit! I just got back from vacation- so it looks like I'm stuck being home for a while! :)

Lovely kit. I probably won't be traveling anywhere this summer,so I might be scrap-booking about the places I dream of going to.

Heather Williams said...

Mmmm...these travel kits are wonderfully delightful!!!

Lots planned for the summer...day trips w/ my son & nephew, who visits us for nearly 2 months every summer. My family & I will be making our way to Charlevoix, Mi for a wk...to visit w/ my Mom, SC for a couple of days to visit my sister, & a week in Sturgis, Mi w/ my extended family (17 of us in all...9 children, 1~15 yrs!). I just LOVE summertime!

Thank you so very much for the generous opportunity! Many blessings ~H♥~

My travel plans aren't much more than heading to the hospital when my little one decides it's time to come in about 4 weeks!

Elisa1 said...

Beautiful....I love the colors. Last year Arizona was hit with crazy fires that kept us from camping in the White Mountains. This summer we are planning to do our annual week camping trip and keeping our fingers crossed that there will be no fires.

Lea said...

A beautiful little kit Tara. I would be a very happy winner indeed. My family and I will be going on a 6 week caravan adventure around Queensland in September. We are counting down the weeks with much excitement. Have a happy weekend.

Hellooo Tara,
I adore your projects and love stalking you :-)
I am not sure whether we will be going on vacation this year. If not, I would love to scrap away with this giveaway. If we do, then I would love to scrap away our holiday pictures with this giveaway :-) See, there is no reason to not use any of those supplies ;-)
Hugs and thanks
