A Holiday Giveaway!

In keeping with the spirit of the holidays, we are happy to announce a holiday giveaway!

What is this marvelous gift, you ask?

Well, like the “unobtanium” toys that crop up each year, this seems to be a relatively hard-to-come-by “toy” for crafters.


Santa and I have heard many a crafter lamenting their inability to find this wonderful little tool, so we thought, what better item to deliver to one lucky craft addict?


Drum roll please…

























Ta da!

It’s the McGill Pine Branch Punch!

It punches amazingly intricate pine branches, perfect for making wreaths or adding a little greenery to your holiday craft projects.


Looking to make your own versions of  Tim Holtz’s  Holiday Tags? Why not add a few pine branches under the embellishments?

Creating layouts in your  December Daily  book or album? These pine branches might be just the thing to spruce up a daily page!


So, were you a good little girl or boy this year?

If so, simply add a comment below* telling us how much you want this fun toy, and what you plan to do with it if Santa drops it into your stocking, and YOU could be the happiest kid on the block!


A lucky little girl or boy will be chosen at noon central time on Christmas Day, 12.25.2011.


Good luck and happy holidays to you all,


*And yes, this giveaway is open to even the naughty little girls and boys!
