Gift Card Giveaway!

Anybody in the mood for some shopping? I have something special for you this week! An online living room furniture company,, is offering a $60 gift card for their store to one lucky Scrapbook Ideas reader this week! All you need to do for your chance to win is to leave a comment on this post sometime between now and Sunday night (July 26th). The random winner will be announced on Monday, July 27th. **NOTE: They ship to US and Canadian residents only at this time.**

I know what you’re thinking – what does a furniture company have to do with scrapbooking? Well, after browsing their huge online store, I found all kinds of goodies there, even scrapbooking and craft supplies! Here are some of my favorites (but of course the winner can use the gift card for anything at the store):

Scrapbook CarrierCraft Hutch Organizer

12x12 Scrapbook Case
Scrapbook Chest

Hmmm, can you tell I have storage solutions on my mind right now? I have been slowly but surely working on getting my craft room organized lately, it had gotten way out of control! Speaking of which – I have looked in at least six stores trying to find stamp pad storage and/or horizontal pen storage and have come up with nothing!! Right now all of my stamp pads are stacked up in a basket, so I have to take them all out to find the colors I want and then stack them all back up to put them away. And my pen storage situation is even worse. Do any of you have any ideas for me?

P.S. The Shutterfly book came! Once I take pics I will be back to show you :).

    Thanks so much for this opportunity to win the gift card!!! It is a great site with lots of useful organizing items!

  3. Mandy R July 20, 2009 at 7:54 am

    I could really use some organization right now. My scrap area is a mess!

  4. Lisa July 20, 2009 at 8:00 am

    I love this site! Im so glad I signed up for your e-mails. Im in the same boat as you, definately got storage and organization solutions on the brain. And I love what you have picked out :)

    As for your stamp storage needs, Im not sure about the size but have you looked at those tacklebox resembling containers?? You can find them at wal-mart in the craft section.

  5. Cindy July 20, 2009 at 8:04 am

    Hey Jess :) Love that hutch! I’ve seen some stamp pad organizers on e-bay – have you checked there?

  6. Aubrey's Mom July 20, 2009 at 8:38 am

    Wow!! Love the organizers you’ve shown!! We are getting ready to move to a new and bigger house, where hopefully my crafting space is an entire room instead of the kitchen table or my desk.

  7. Janet Perry July 20, 2009 at 8:52 am

    I am so glad I subscribed to Scrapbook Ideas-SO many great ideas that are practical! And now the possibility of a shopping trip!! Wow!! This is exciting! We are in the middle of putting an addition on our house, and my workroom is the storage area for everything that needs to be out of the workmen’s way….I can’t WAIT to get myself organized again! This gift card looks like the perfect jump start!

  8. naomi July 20, 2009 at 9:03 am

    Wow. there is so much stuff there I could use! We JUST moved into a cute little cabin/house and my husband and I made space for me to have a little craft corner but we lack the furniture to do it with! *laugh*

  9. Cree July 20, 2009 at 9:04 am

    I’m a new scrapper and I have gotten so many tips, ideas from your site, thanks.

  10. Heather Fuhriman July 20, 2009 at 9:15 am

    Thanks for all the great ideas. The only coolest stamp pad and pen organizer I know of comes from Close To My Heart, but I would bet that it would be sized only perfect for their stamp pads. But it is a nice idea.

  11. Candice S. July 20, 2009 at 9:57 am

    How awesome is this!??!?!? I just looked at their website and they have some really awesome stuff that I would totally use to organize myself!!

    I really appreciate this opportunity! I love reading your blog!


  12. Marty July 20, 2009 at 10:11 am

    What a great giveaway! I’m always looking for new storage solutions, too. Aren’t we all?

  13. Deana July 20, 2009 at 10:42 am

    I could use some storage solutions too.

  14. Melissa Reum July 20, 2009 at 11:14 am

    Getting ready to PCS out of Fl and need to get my supplies in order before the packlout date arrives… great ideas for storage solutions on this site!!! Couldn’t we all use some help in that department though?! lol

  15. Ashley Scoonover July 20, 2009 at 11:19 am

    Count me in for the gift card giveaway! I really like the Close To My Heart stamp pad storage towers!

  16. Melissa July 20, 2009 at 11:25 am


    I have several reactions to your post:

    *You have a craft room? I want a craft room! My “craft room” is my kitchen table.

    *storage — yes, it’s time to clean out my storage and re-organize. I have a cabinet next to the computer that has paper and stuff, but the organizers I have in there won’t hold 12×12 paper. They are made for standard 8.5×11. I’d be happy with some stackable organizers that were wider and deeper, do they make those anywhere?

    *I esp. like the case you listed that has the handle to carry it and 12×12 hanging files. I have a similar case (not for scrapping, just general paperwork, I am an Awana secretary at my church and I keep my Awana paperwork in it) that holds standard file folders, so 12×12 papers wouldn’t fit.

    *This site has lots of items that would be good for teachers, too.

    *I can’t wait to see your photo book! How did the “gutter” issue turn out?


  17. Linda July 20, 2009 at 12:18 pm

    I have the same problem with stamp pad storage! Can’t wait to see your book. Thanks for the chance to win. Hope you are enjoying summer!

  18. Sheri July 20, 2009 at 1:11 pm

    ohh lots of nifty items in their catalog. Cant wait to see your book. Thanks for doing this for us. Hugs…Sheri

  19. Jennifer Ezell July 20, 2009 at 1:50 pm

    What a fun give away!

  20. Kattie Smith July 20, 2009 at 3:00 pm

    Thank you for the awesome opportunity! I could definitely use some organizational supplies!! :-) They have so many fun items!!

  21. Mandie P. July 20, 2009 at 3:42 pm

    Great giveaway! Who couldn’t use this?!

  22. Janel S July 20, 2009 at 4:46 pm

    Thanks Jess! I could always use a gift card.

  23. Jenny July 20, 2009 at 4:54 pm

    Thanks for running this contest!! I could definitely use some organization in my life! ;)

  24. Trude July 20, 2009 at 5:41 pm

    I’m a total sucker for good storage stuff!! :) Thanks for doing this giveaway!

    Have you thought about sorting stamps by category? I’ve only done a few hybrid things so my stamps are limited, but categorizing always helps me. As for pens, I sort by color. :)

  25. Bernice July 20, 2009 at 8:31 pm

    I would just love to win a gift certificate. I was excited to read that they even ship to Canada! There are a lot of things on there I would love to have, and thanks to them for the chance to win a gift certificate.

  26. Jenni July 20, 2009 at 8:53 pm

    Ooooh! Love that hutch, very nice!
    Can’t wait to see the shutterfly book- I’m one (or two) pages away from sending one in myself!

  27. Mom July 21, 2009 at 6:59 am

    Gee….I’m going to need some furniture pieces for the new house! I’m in on this one! :-)

    Love XO

  28. Melinda July 21, 2009 at 8:59 am

    My sis uses an old cassette tape holder for her stamps, Jess. Individual slots for the pads and hers is a rotary type too, but I’ve seen wall-mounted versions too.
    I’m drooling over the craft desk now after checking out the Livingrooms Direct site :)

  29. Theresa Amlong July 21, 2009 at 6:42 pm

    Who wouldn’t love to win! I would use the clear bins to store my stamps. I think one or two layers of stamps would fit perfectly in there.

  30. sebby July 22, 2009 at 1:27 pm

    Could always use new storage stuff….maybe I should stop buying so many scrapbooking supplies….ummm, naahhh!

  31. Amber July 22, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    Well.. I don’t know what to tell you about the stamp pads, but what I do for pen organization is just get one of those bead or tackle box organizers that you can take the plastic pieces in and out of to customize it a bit, and stick them in there.. You can do it by color, type, size, etc.. Seems to work okay for me.. Good luck! Oh! And thanks for the chance to win the gift card.. how fun!! :D

  32. Anita July 23, 2009 at 7:27 am

    What a great idea! Thanks! By the way, I love your shutterfly book – the flowers are beautiful!! I need to organize my scrapbook/craft stuff as well – very badly!! haha I had found a place that sold wooden ink pad storage that also held markers, reinkers, and even some of them held wheels. I’ll have to search for it and send it to you if/when I find it.
    Thanks for the change to win!!

  33. Anita July 23, 2009 at 7:39 am

    Here is one site you can look at for stamp pad storage needs.

    Hope this helps…


  34. Teresa July 23, 2009 at 11:13 pm

    Great contest. I am just starting out scrapbooking a couple months ago and am loving it. Off I go for some more ideas.

  35. Debbie July 25, 2009 at 5:16 pm

    I am in!!! I love your website…God is so good!!! Keep on sharing the message!!! Blessings to you!

  36. Sara Cunningham July 25, 2009 at 9:21 pm

    Hey Jess! Thanks for the great opportunity to win a gift card!!! I could SOOOOOOOOOOOO use some of those things to organize my room!!!
