Blessings and Hugs!
Good luck, everyone!
UPDATE: WOW!!! I think I got carried away, but I thought I would give an update on how the kit is progressing. I have the 6X6 chipboard cut (6 pages, so the mini will be the standard 12 page mini). Here's where I got carried away--the winner will receive 42 6X6 papers!!! I know! I went crazy!!! You will have plenty to choose from, that's for sure!!! That's all I have done so far, but I will add LOTS more goodies to the kit--binder rings, Tim Holtz findings, stamped images, you get the idea. I round the corners on my minis. What do you gals think? Want me to round the corners for you? And if so, just the chipboard, or all the papers, too? Post some comments and let me know! I want this to be fun!!! Input from those who post comments will help me tailor the kit more to what you want. I'm excited! This is my first kit give-away!! If it goes over well, I'm sure I'll do more in the future! Oh, and I forgot to put a deadline! DUH!!! The cartridges are supposed to be out in mid-April, so let's set the deadline for 9pm PST on April 1st. That will give me time to get the kit to the winner before the cartridges ship. Sound good?
UPDATE #2: As I go through my stash, it appears obvious to me that I have been unknowingly preparing for this cartridge for a LONG time!!! I have purchased SO many printables with a Parisian theme that I am amazed myself!! French dress forms and windows, chandaliers and peacocks, hot air balloons, and tags too numerous to mention. I'm going to need a BIG box to ship this kit to the winner!!! And I haven't even started going through my embellishment stash yet!!! WOOHOO!!! This is so much fun!!
UPDATE #3: Went through my printables stash and got those ready and added to the kit. I stopped counting at 50 tags!!! There are three sheets of vellum and some cardstock shapes, as well. Now I will go through my embellishment stash. The way it is looking, if you have some chipboard, you should easily have enough in this kit to complete AT LEAST two other mini albums. I tried to whittle it down a little, but there really isn't anything that I can't see working in some way, so I'm leaving it ALL in!! I'm hoping to post pictures of all the goodies once I'm done, so check back!
YIKES!!! Are you ready? I had to take TEN pictures to show just a sampling of what is in this prize. And I still want to add some trims and fibers! Anyway, here we go:
Webster's Pages vellum--Two sheets
Another Webster's Pages Vellum sheet
Just a small sampling of the papers--Remember the winner will receive 42 6X6 sheets of top-quality papers, many of which are glittered or foiled.
Over FIFTY tags, Acetate Top Note and Pink mini brads
This really is quite a stack of tags!
Naked Chipboard Eiffel Tower, frames and off cuts

More embellies, charms, binder rings, clips, paper flowers, boa, pearls

WHEW!!! I will be adding more goodies to this kit, but that's it for now. I want to go shop for some lace and fibers to add to it. So, what do you think? Se Magnifique?
UPDATE: I didn't take a picture of it, but I am adding a 7 Gypsies stamp set to the kit, as well!! Great stamps that will work with SOOO many projects!!! WOOHOO!!! This is fun!!
UPDATE: Today, I have added fibers, ribbons and some gorgeous lace pieces to the kit, along with several yummy feathers!!! This is one HUGE kit!!!
