Free Give Away Courtesy of Creating a Family Home

 



Well everyone it's Monday and as usual we have a new fabulous free give away here at Bacon Time!!!  Kelly from Creating a Family Home has designed the most beautiful handmade card collection, and one lucky winner will be walking away with them all.  Take it away Kelly...

Hi, everyone!  My name is Kelly, and I blog about all things seasonal and creative on Creating a Family Home.  That’s where I share free craft tutorials and knitting patterns, seasonal recipes, decorating ideas, and a glimpse into my family’s seasonally inspired life on an old dairy farm in rural Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

Earlier this year I opened an Etsy shop as an outlet for my creativity. I sell seasonal needle felted creations for nature tables or seasonal displays, knitting patterns, seasonal wreaths, ceramic doo-dads (like magnets, buttons, and soon, custom nameplates) and now, seasonally inspired note cards.

I love all things handmade, but I especially enjoy making birthday cards, thank you notes, decorative note cards and note cards that just let someone know you’re thinking about them.  In today’s information age, a handmade note card speaks volumes—and I hope to encourage this age-old custom through my lines of nature-inspired note cards.  Hand-written notes fit into my family’s natural, back-to-basics, seasonally driven lifestyle.

Here’s a glimpse into my family’s world through my blog, Creating a Family Home:

We live on 400-acres that used to be a dairy farm.  It’s a lovely place to raise a young family.


My favorite crafts are seasonally inspired and often made with things I find in nature and objects I already have around the house.  Check out my Leaf Decoupage Vase Tutorial


…and the photo box gift I made for my husband for Father’s Day.  Get the tutorial here.



It makes a great gift for just about any occasion, and you can save your photo scraps for a set of Resourceful Photo Scrap note cards!  That tutorial is here.  You can see that not much goes to waste in this household!


Enough about me and my love of crafts, family and home….Onto the giveaway!

The giveaway:
I’m giving away a special set of five handmade note cards.  They’re a mix of the three different collections I’m currently carrying in my shop.

Birds and Owls Cards

A closer look


Each note card comes with its own A6 envelope, and I’ll throw in an extra envelope just in case.  The lucky winner will get three cards from my Birds and Owls collection, one Butterflies in Flight card and one Autumn Greetings card. 

Butterflies in Flight (left), Autumn Greetings (right)

So that’s five handmade cards in all, each with a different sentiment:

- Hello
- Thanks
- Thinking of You
- Get Well
- Autumn Greetings

More on the giveaway cards:

Each card in this set of five handmade cards measures 5 1/2" wide by 4 1/2" high (A6 size); the Birds and Owls cards and Butterfly card feature layers of pretty patterned papers accented with stamped birds, owls or butterflies and a sentiment. The Autumn Greetings card is made of rustic, textured brown cardstock with patterned paper overlay and stamped images and sentiment and a little yarn bow. Some of the cards’ accents are raised for interest, giving them a professional look and feel. Cards are blank on the inside; handcrafted with acid-free adhesive and archival-quality pigment inks.
