My Gift Up Close1| Riley Blake Fat Quarter Bundle


I absolutely love the fabric from Riley Blake Designs. They have prints of all kinds from classic to whimsical, holiday and more! This adorable  “In The Ocean” fat quarter bundle is included in my Favorite Things gift pack! This year I made my daughter’s Easter (and Preschool Graduation) dress with 3 darling Riley Blake prints from the Lazy Day line. I am in love with how it turned out!

2| $50 Credit to the Caravan Shoppe


If you’ve been around here awhile, you may have noticed our obsession with this shop. The Caravan Shoppe sells digital, print-ready files for holidays, kids toys, gifts, decor and even pregnancy/baby! (I’m loving my chalk print countdown!)

Their brand-spanking new Thanksgiving Collection is your solution for easy, stress-free Thanksgiving decor that your guests will all be talking about! These files are easily printed as Engineering prints for under $8 in huge sizes to use as tablecloths, photo backdrops, wall art, and more.

Here is how Holly styled one of their prints last Fall:


 With $50 to spend, you’ll be set for Thanksgiving, Christmas and more!

3| $30 Shop credit to Nickel & Suede


Oh. My. Goooodness. I can’t say enough about these leather earrings from Nickel & Suede. You just have to check out the gorgeousness for yourself! They’re so chic, versatile and lightweight enough that it feels like you’re not even wearing earrings! (Mom tip: these are the ONLY earrings I have found myself sleeping in when I tuck in the kids at night!)

Nickel & Suede JUST launched their HOLIDAY COLLECTION this week and it is to die for! Holly and I are kind of obsessed with Kilee and her style too! For $30 you can pick any earrings you like and get them shipped to you (or a friend…but good luck letting go of these beauties!)

You know we’re Project Life fans. It’s a way I’ve been able to keep up with documenting my little family without being overwhelmed. If you’re new to this idea, check out this post: What is Project Life?


We’re giving away one of our favorite new Core Kits, the Coral Edition – which includes all the cards you’ll need to get started. I love how versatile this edition is – it definitely has colors for both boys and girls while still using a modern design.

5| $15 Itunes/App Store gift card

Speaking of Project Life, in addition to the physical product, one of my MOST favorite things of 2014 is the new Project Life App.
Yup, it’s scrapbooking in the palm of your hand, folks!


I’m giving away a $15 iTunes/App store gift card so you can grab the app and try it for yourself! You’ll be able to purchase several additional kits and layouts, too. (There are quite a few included when you purchase the app.)


Here’s what I whipped up ON Halloween after my kids were tucked in bed:

    I have been wanting to try the Project Life system. I love to scrapbook, but it takes up so much time. I hope I have a chance to win this basket.

    Heads up- your twitter link is incorrect in the rafflecopter. I was already following you, but you might want to correct it for others.

  5. Stephanie Maberry says

    My pre-teen daughter has developed a sewing obsession, this would be perfect under the Christmas tree.
    I, unfortunately don’t do those sites for privacy issues so I hope that I can still be entered
    Thank you for this generous opportunity! I’m so glad that TidyMom sent me to your site, I look forward to exploring it in further detail.
