SCAT's Red Carpet and SCAT's biggest GIVEAWAY ever!

it's the most wonderful time of the year! i love the holidays, and christmas has topped my favorite's list since i was a kid.
this month's Red Carpet Scrap-Star created one of the most beautiful christmas cards i've ever seen. check out the interview to learn a little bit more about Daniela's scrap-style.

how long have you been scrapbooking/cardmaking

a little more than a year

what was your last scrap purchase?
We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper

name 3 adjectives to describe your style
clean, symmetric, (with a touch of) shiny

name 3 items you cannot scrap without?
ribbon, rhinestones, embossing powder (lately)

below is one of Daniela's favorite christmas cards. what can i say there's so much about it that i love. i'm so into rhinestones right now, the background stamp is adorable. i love how she used the ribbon, and of course the traditional christmas colors really set the holiday mood. she's so talented. :)

I love this card because I love working with simple layouts, adding one or two embellishments, like rhinestones or buttons.

as promised this giveaway is going to be bigger and better than any Red Carpet giveaway so far. (not quite hard since i only started red carpet giveaway's two months ago-but that's not the point, LOL!)
stamps, ribbon, stickers, rub ons, and more! trust me when i tell you, you want to win this prize, and it's super simple. check out Daniela's blog and come back here and leave a comment telling me what your favorite holiday is and why. you have till December 30th at 12pm PST.

Red Carpet Giveaway WINNER!

one of these day's i'm going to try using one of those random number selectors that i see bloggers use to pick their winners. until then i think my system works quite well. i turn to my husband and say
"babe, pick a number between 1 & 18"
"just because"
"what's it for?"
"to pick a winner for my blog?"
"what do i win for picking the number?"
"a happy wife,"
doesn't get more random than that! so far the system's working pretty well.

and this months Red Carpet Giveaway Winner . . .Jackie!
