Friday, August 6, 2010 1000 sheets for A thousand sheets... and then some! :)Today is a special day here at the ol' A thousand sheets of paper blog. No, it's not quite the one year anniversary, as that was on July 16th. Instead I thought it would be fun to combine that celebration with another crazy milestone that I've been keeping track of and finally hit this past week... you see, since I started making cards and posting them here I've been keeping track of the number of different sheets of pattern paper that I cut into for my cards just to see how long it would take to get to 1000. I'm excited to say that it only took a couple weeks over my year anniversary to get there! I told you this was crazy! LOL!Crazy or not though, I'm in the mood to celebrate (and clear out some paper) so I've got A THOUSAND 6x6 sheets of paper that I'm giving away! Wanna see what 1000 sheets of paper looks like? Take a look-see... That's a lot of paper, huh? Perhaps just a bit crazy to send all to one person, so I'm breaking it apart into five candies of 200 sheets each. And the fun doesn't stop there! I couldn't celebrate a wonderful, exciting, surprising and simply amazing year of stamping and blogging without throwing some stamps into the mix as well! So I have collected stamps from all of my most favorite companies into one MEGA CANDY! Wanna know who all is included? There is: Sweet November Coral Reefweaver, Chanter Heartsong, Coriander Fairy and Darby & Penelope CC Designs Lil Emma Bug, Cherry Emma and Halloween Hansel The Greeting Farm Miss Anya Dressy set, Fairy Chloe and Fairy Eva Tickled Pink Lil Lolita Ivy and 60's Mod Ivy Simply Betty Stamps Lola and Miller Stamping Bella Maisy Ketto Christy Croll Appley bowl Huggabug (since I couldn't include one of her fab Tiddly inks digis) My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Fairy Girl Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girl "Just a girl" Kraftin' Kimmie Drucilla and lots of little extras Lili of the Valley Tiptoe fairy Wondering what you need to do for a chance to win all of these plus some yummy paper? Well, because this is pretty big and I'm pretty excited about it, I really want to spread the word sooooo... in order to be eligible to win the grand prize you have to post about the 1000 sheets blog candy on your own blog (feel free to right click and use the paper photo above or even the stamp photo below), linking directly back to this post.
