On the Sixth Month of Christmas ...

Hi, everyone! Welcome to the sixth of my "12 Months of Christmas" giveaways!

This month's giveaway is inspired by the summery weather that has descended upon Miami. The heat has been brutal the last few days & this is only the beginning. It's gotten me thinking hard about ways to cool off, which leads my mind to the ocean and the beach. Because summer is coming, I have decided to give away the Graphic 45 "On the Boardwalk" paper collection!*




The collection contains two each of all ten double sided papers in the collection. What's great about that is you won't have to choose between the patttern on the front and the pattern on the back! The collection kit also contains a set of the "On the Boardwalk" die cut tags and a set of the "On the Boardwalk" die cut borders. Perfect for creating a vintage beach mini or some summer vacation layouts!

On the Boardwalk:





She Sells Seashells:





Summer Crush:





Coney Island:





Seaside Chic:





High Style Holiday:





Life's a Beach:





Malt Shop:





By the Beautiful Sea:





Bathing Beauties:





On the Boardwalk Tags:





On the Boardwalk Borders:





The winner will receive the paper collection to do with as they please. To be entered to win the Graphic 45 "On the Boardwalk" paper collection, simply leave a comment on this post before 11:59 p.m. Miami, FL USA time {GMT/UTC-4} on Thursday, June 10th. I will post the winner first thing on Friday morning!

Life's a beach. Scrapbook it.

*Because of the high cost to ship 12"x12" paper internationally, winners with mailing addresses outside the USA will receive the Graphic 45 "On the Boardwalk" 8"x8" paper pad and some extra goodies from me instead of the 12"x12" paper pack.

  49. Hi, Kathryn. This is a really, really nice collection. I've been video-viewing quite a bit lately and hearing quite a lot about Graphic 45 collection(s), but I've not seen it at any of the retail outlets I frequent. Nevertheless, I love it. It's so vintagey and beautifully old - a look I find myself kind of drawn to lately. I just love the look of "lovingly worn" and "tenderly tattered" and "gently faded" that distressing can give and with this collection you kind of already have a head start. I have a boat-load of old photo, etc. from when I was a little girl living in the Coney Island area of Brooklyn, NY and it would be interesting to see how I could use these pattern papers and other ephemera-like pages to create a mini (or two) with the photos I have.

    Thanks for sharing and the opportunity to win this lovely collection of papers.
