Friday Giveaway!!! Simple Stories is here!

Happy Friday, SCT friends!!! Has another week really passed us? Is time flying for you the way it is for us around here? What is one thing you accomplished this week? It could be sitting down to create a project you’ve been wanting to, it could be catching with a friend, it simply might be you cooked a dinner this week. And hooray for that! Tell us in the comments what you’ve been up to this week. We always love to hear!

This week we were busy and in many different directions. Online class prep, the winter issue is in for design and we are getting ready for our next events. Today as we were preparing to send off two large pallets to our Crop & Create Saskatoon event, we came across an extra collection in our box from our friends at Simple Stories. We just had to share it with one lucky reader today! Feast your eyes on this…

“The beauty and wonder of Christmas are all wrapped up in the Simple Vintage Collection by Simple Stories. This seasonal collection is designed by artist Katie Pertiet and showcases her beautiful vintage artwork of Christmas trees, holly, mistletoe, Santa, lace and so much more. You will particularly want to pay attention to the new number tag embellishments that include numbers 1 through 31 that are perfect for an advent calendar or documenting your December daily festivities.”

Isn’t it gorgeous? Does it need a home in your craft space? For an opportunity to win this collection from Simple Stories, be sure to comment on what you did this week OR something you hope to accomplish next week. Leave your comment by Thursday, November 1st. Good luck!

And from all of us here at SCT, have a great weekend!

  33. Michelle Willard October 26, 2018 at 4:27 pm

    Oh no! If a chance to win this great prize pkg is based on crafty accomplishments this week….I got nothing! To be honest my week was a disaster between trying to catch up at work after 2 weeks off and covering for another nurse crafting didn’t add up. Also took my Grandson skating and drove 2 hours and back to a wake of a close friend. Sorry folks…just stating the facts but life got in the way! Maybe next week….good luck everybody and thanks to SCT!

  34. Glenda Thorne October 26, 2018 at 4:33 pm

    I completed a layout for a FB challenge in a group I belong to. I had to use green, orange and purple. Completed it one afternoon, a first for me, as I usually take 2 days or 2 weeks, lol. I have the Simple Stories Christmas album and this collection would definitely be perfect for it. Thanks to you and Simple Stories for a chance to win.

    Pssht. I was swamped with work all week. SWAMPED, I tell ya! I had meetings at 8am in the morning with one overseas team, and meetings at 9pm with another overseas team. Teams in training! Teams at customer sites! All clamoring for my assistance. OK, I have great job security, but I am way overloaded.

    Some nice, old-fashioned, free Christmas paper would help though, hint hint wink wink…

  69. Cara Feeney October 26, 2018 at 9:58 pm

    What a beautiful Christmas collection! All the sweet vintage designs take me back to my memories of the holidays.
    This week has been hectic and full of appointments for some reason but I did find some time to play with paper. I tried some little paper purse designs I am hoping to make as a little thinking of you present when I go to a crop next month. The ladies are always so friendly and kind and I thought it would be a nice little way of showing them how much I appreciate them allowing me into their circle of crafters.
    Thank you so much for sharing such a lovely collection from Simple Stories as a gift for some lucky person! 🙂

  85. Wendy Lambert October 27, 2018 at 6:22 am

    This would be so amazing to win. I’m creating my first ever Christmas scrapbook this year and this would be perfect. This week I have managed to scan a ton of my recipe books so I can give them away. I’m trying to purge clutter. Still have a lot to do but I am getting there. We have a free market day coming up where people can just come and take things so I am hoping to have them all done by then. Most likely I will leave with some more things too….lol.

  86. Arianna Barbara October 27, 2018 at 6:46 am

  93. Shelley Prain October 27, 2018 at 9:43 am

  95. Judy O October 27, 2018 at 10:28 am

    I had a great week in the craft room. I completed three classes of SCT 365 2018 so I am all caught up as well as focused on my Christmas card plans. Had to order another lawn fawn die as the design I have chosen will make it much neater than fussy cutting like I normally do. Simple stories collection is so beautiful – would be a wonderful win!!! Thanks SCT and SS!

  96. BarbMac Vt October 27, 2018 at 10:39 am

    I have spent the last few months getting all my paperwork together to give to my lawyer so that I can divorce the dirty dog who I have been married to for 28 years. He can go find another mistress who is 18 years younger than he is and cheat on her instead of on me! I have MUCH better things to do than worry about that stuff! As the saying goes, I would rather be crafting! 😁🤩😁

  97. Kristine Johnson Gifford October 27, 2018 at 10:54 am

    This is so cute! And of course, I can make room in my stash for it! This is the weekend for my annual Halloween Bash with my book club. I always host because I love decorating and dressing up for Halloween. This morning I am cleaning up! So much fun with my friends!

    It’s been a while but I was finally able to sit down in my crafty corner and work on some cards. Christmas movies on in the background and a nice cup of coffee, I opened up one of my SCT delivered card kits. It was so good to be in my zen place.

  138. Dee Brown October 28, 2018 at 10:41 pm

  139. Tessie G October 28, 2018 at 11:04 pm

  145. Celeste B October 29, 2018 at 9:00 am

    Doesn’t seem I have accomplished anything I wanted to this past week and it’s over. Guess I can start on that list today, including trying to clean out my scrap room for a crafty garage sale on Saturday.

    Love the whole collection.
    I cleaned the whole house on Sunday. That was the day after my daughter had her Halloween/Birthday party. My husband and my daughter helped too. It wasn’t too bad!!!! But that also means I do not have to do much housework this week and I will start on my Christmas Cards. I deserved some ME time.

  157. Tish October 30, 2018 at 10:05 am

    I love this new collection! I love vintage Christmas. This would be great for making cards and pages! The last couple of weeks I’ve been working on a mini album for a friend’s birthday gift. After accepting the fact that she’d probably never get to be a grandmother due to her daughter’s health problems (Ovarian Cancer), a miracle grandson was born! He just turned a year old so I’m doing her a “Nana’s 1st Year” mini album. I can’t wait to give it to her!

  161. Cherrie E Vrabel October 30, 2018 at 3:44 pm

    I LOVE this collection so much!! I would absolutely Love to win it!! Thank you so much the opportunity!!

  167. Dorina D November 1, 2018 at 1:05 am

    Love this collection. it’s so fun, colorful and traditional. One of my favorites. It’s been a long haul this year recovering from major surgery, but my biggest accomplishment this past week was cooking, pureeing, and freezing 60 pounds of pumpkin for soup, pies and breads and from 25 pounds of tomatoes, I also canned spaghetti and cocktail sauce for Christmas Presents. YAY!!!!! Great week for me. Thanks for a chance.

  168. Laurel Draper November 1, 2018 at 1:31 am

    This past week was spent busily putting the finishing touches on a birthday party we gave last night for my Mom’s 90th birthday!! I contacted everyone from her 93 yr. old brother, all the hairdressers at her salon, her neighbors, her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, church friends, women in her Medical Wives group, etc., to ask them to write her a note. These notes included their memories of her, the impact she made on their lives, the service she lovingly gave (she once followed a man across town after she heard someone at the food pantry tell him that they did not have any cheese to give him…just so she could give him a large block of Tillamook cheese!!), appreciation for what she did for disabled people in our community (my oldest sister had Down Syndrome), etc. I compiled these letters into a scrapbook for her, and it turned out that it was a gift to ME…to be reminded of how lucky I’ve been to have HER as my mother! Tomorrow I am headed to the mountains…Eden, Utah, to scrapbook for the next few days with a group of girls I’ve been scrapbooking with for 20 years!! Wahoo!! That collection from Simple Stories is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! I would absolutely love to create with it!!!

  169. Giorgia Rossini November 1, 2018 at 3:00 am

    Beautiful collection! Thanks for the chance. By next week I hope to finish decorating the nursery for my Isabella, due on December 28 🙂

  170. Janni Johansen November 1, 2018 at 5:56 pm

    I sold an old sewing machine, which has been sitting in my closet for many years. Hurray!

  171. Brenda Brown November 2, 2018 at 8:42 am

    What a beautiful collection! My friend and I finally found time in our busy schedules to spend an afternoon creating a project life album and catching up. My album was on my trip to Europe and hers on her beautiful little girl. We are scheduling a craft afternoon once a month. 😀
