This blog candy contest is now closed. Thanks for playing!
Today my book "A Year of Flowers" is officially AVAILABLE!! (although I know a few of you have been ordering it already this past week, thank you!) Yippee! Enjoy a year’s worth of stylish card designs with the monthly projects and popular stamping techniques! Gina K will be sharing a video on StampTV very soon featuring the book, but you can also find sneak peeks of more of the projects inside on the Annie's Attic site, where you can order both the book AND the "A Year of Flowers" stamp set.
Detailed, step-by-step instructions and photos make it easy for crafters of all experience levels to enjoy creating stylish, handmade cards, from very simple to multi-layered designs, using a variety of unique color palettes and layouts. With the built-in dates to remember section, A Year of Flowers will not only allow the card crafter to grow and perfect her card-making skills over the course of the year, she can sit down, plan, create, and get cards out on time!
Every card in this book uses my "A Year of Flowers" stamps from Gina K Designs, plus you'll see lots of other favorite products like Spellbinders Nestabilities, Gina K Pure Luxury cardstock, etc! Any other floral images can be used with these designs and techniques, of course, but you can do them ALL with these one-of-a-kind all-occasion stamps. The book is $14.95. You can read more about it, plus an early customer review, in this post.
Shipping this month is FREE at Annie's Attic when you purchase over $15 and use the keycode 1212702 at checkout, this code is good through 1/31/12. (If you already bought a copy, this book makes a great gift!) Since the book is just short of $15, they have some other crafting supplies as low as 1-3 dollars you can add to your cart like a bone folder, glue sticks, scissors, or Tami's sketchbook to name a few that will bump it up to qualify for the free shipping! You can get my book AND one of Tami's sketchbooks for only $17.90, and the shipping will be free! :)
To celebrate the release, I am offering up a signed copy of the coordinating stamp set "A Year of Flowers", which is pictured above. You'll be able to start recreating cards as soon as the book arrives! (I know many of you have this set already, but you are still welcome to play along! Just promise to give it to your stamping "bestie" (or a bestie that you wish stamped, it's a good way to get hooked, (er, started!) on the hobby) :)
