225 Cards & Gifts MONSTER GIVEAWAY!!!!!


225 Cards & Gifts! 225? Amazing!! I can't wait to get my hands on this issue. The cover itself is inspiring and yummy! Don't you love the color combo?
Handmade gifts are priceless and I am always on the lookout for new ideas. :)

Speaking of gifts, a student in my night class just had a baby boy. He is SO CUTE!
I used the Bungle Jungle line from Sassafras Lass to make a gift set for her. Do you recognize the color combo? ;-)


The card is a gift cardholder. All you have to do is pull the ribbon and the gift card slides right out from behind the monkey.


I just love how this little box came out. Check out those handles! They were made from stickers.


I made a set of quick cards for her too. They coordinate with the other items and could easily be used as 'Thank You' cards.


You are not going to believe this but you have 12 chances to win one of these: Cricut Expression, YourStory Laminator/Binder, or a Yudu Screen-Printing Machine. Amazing, isn't it?

So what do you have to do? It is easy....just comment on 12 blogs. The winners will be announced on both the Moxie Fab World & PC Connection blogs on Tuesday, April 28th.

Ingrid Aukan said...

I'm an aunt of 6, soon to be 7, and I adore my little nieces and nephews soo much. The most precious gift I ever received was a drawing from my oldest nephew, which was a simple, red heart on a white background. When giving it to me, he simply said "this is for YOU auntie!" *heartbreaker*

MoooooN said...

The most memorable gift that I have recieved is the first gift of my husband - an umbrella. This was his first gift for me. It's 8 years old now!

Kathy Daume' said...

Awwwww this little set is ADORABLE! I love the monkey gift card holder. Too precious and fun.

My most memorable gift is a really recent one from this Christmas. My hubby gave me a cruise! I had an extremely tough 2008, so it was an awesome gift and was seriously the best vacation I've ever been on!

Ret said...

What fabulous giveaways!! The most memorable gift I ever recieved was at Christmas time, when I was in college many years ago. My Dad has recently passed away, but I will never forget. I was financially down & out and all the presents had been opened underneath the tree. My Dad took my hand & walked me out to their front porch. On it were 4 large cloth covered gifts! I just couldn't imagine what they were...
4 BRAND NEW WINTER STUDDED SNOW TIRES!!!! I had no money for winter tires and he got me a really good set! I can remember how special this was to me, but the biggest gift was the card he attached..."you are so precious to me, I want to keep my little girl safe! Merry Christmas with all my love, Dad. That meant so much to me, then & now. And yes, 25 years later & I still have that card!!

Bec said...

I am loving that box. Oh so cute!!!

My most memorable gift was from my husband last year for our 1st wedding anniversary. Being paper he got me a voucher for a scrapbooking shop. How thoughtful and well thought, considering I don't get anything for my birthdays! :o)

Probably the most memorable gift I've received is a pastel picture of a rose done by my sister. She had made it in secret and had my dad frame it for her so she could give it to me. I absolutely love homemade gifts or gifts with such thought put into them.

DFMorgan said...

I grew up on a dairy farm in Minnesota, and those cows called to be milked early every morning and again each evening. I road a bus to school for 12 years (first third one on and next to last one off each day). When I was in high school, my dad picked me up from school one day (for some unremembered reason). I begged to go to an Elvis movie that had just come to town. He actually took me and ended up going home and milking those cows until midnight (while I slept and didn't even help him). I still remember that as a wonderful gift at great sacrifice to him (and those cows).

Kate Long said...

Absolutely adore your Monkey Themed gift idea. My nephew would love this. Also, such a great giveway. Thanks for another chance to win!

Nikki Schmaltz said...

I love your gift set. That girl is soo lucky. The monkeys are adorable! My most memorable gift was when my husband surprised me with a Mother's ring. Diamonds are my kid's birthstones and it was only because I was being so supportive about a new job he was taking. It made me feel so special.

StampinCathy said...

WoW Maren!
This is one amazing give. I just love the colors and that monkey is to darn cute. Thanks for this fabulous and inspiring eye candy. I would have to say memorable gifts would be the ones my daughters made me when they were young. Thanks so much for another chance at this awesome celebration candy.

ScrapMomOf2 said...

This is fun! I really cannot think of just one memorable gift, but I can tell you that when my girls started making Mother's Day gifts in school and so proudly giving them to me on Mother's Day, I would cry every single time! It really touches my heart when I receive a handmade gift. Seeing my beautiful girls and their pride shining through and the excitement that they felt about what they had made . . . who needs anything else? Your baby gifts are AMAZING! I love the color combination, and it's not only gorgeous, it's all very practical. Wonderful! Have a great weekend!

Oh I think your student will love this gift set. I think it's adorable! I love to give special one of a kind gifts to family and friends. I always remember my the first time my daughter told me she loved me. That was the greatest gift to me. I remember the her face, her hug and how amazing it made me feel. A wonderful gift that I can never buy or duplicate.

As a child it was definitely the 'Barbie Dream House' for Christmas. It has been my favorite gift by far...thanks! Lisa K in tx

Hi Maren, what a gorgeous set - your friend will be so happy to get it. Your work is beautiful.
My best ever gift was one that money could not buy. In 2006 my 18 year old son was almost killed in a car accident, and was in hospital for 13 months. Amongst his many injuries was severe brain damage. We were told that as a result of his brain damage he would never speak again. On Mother's Day that year, several months after his accident I went into his hospital room and as I went over to hug him in his wheelchair he said his first words: "Hello Mum, I love you." . . . . such precious words, and a gift beyond price!
Hugs, Anne. dinkuminkum at yahoo dot co dot nz.

Candice said...

I love those cards - I never thought about using the edges of the Sasafrass paper on cards!!!

My most memorable gift would have to be on my wedding day. My husband to be, knew how much of a purse fanatic I am, and always gave me a hard time about having so many. But on our wedding day, he gave me a purse that he had gone and picked out himself. I just thought that was so sweet! It's a purse I'll keep forever!

Bernice said...

I love that box you've made!

Does my engagement ring count? My husband picked out the most fiery diamond because that's what he thought most resembled me. I'm reminded of that every time it sparkles in the sun :)

Mrs B said...

First let me say! CUTE!!!! so cute! Love the gift card! My most memorable gift was my engagement ring from my husband....he was so romantic when he gave it to me! I think of that time each time I look at my finger!
Thanks for the chance to win such fab prizes!!!

Fae said...

I just got the best gift ever for Christmas this year. I collect the Harley Davidson Barbie Dolls, which they only made for five years. They are rare. Anyway, I had the last four, but not the first edition. My wonderful boyfriend who lives in another state, whom I don't even remember telling that I had this collection, stashed away in a very safe place, found me the first edition and had his dad give it to me for Christmas. I was in Awe....

Amber said...

Whoa, I love this set!! Sassafrass = love!! =) Thanks for sharing!

Primitive Seasons said...

I guess mymost memorable gift would be one Christmas that my daughter gave me this huge Santa holding an ark and all the animals. Must have been 3' tall. Wowzer!

Most memorable gift...I've been fortunate to receive many lovely gifts in my life but the gift that stands out is a doll my mother bought me when I was a kid. I wanted that doll so bad it's all I could think about and she surprised me with it. It's been 30 years and I still remember that doll.

AHadley said...

The most memorable gift I received was a cut crystal heart shaped jewelry box. I was 11 years old and was so thrilled that someone would give something so beautiful to ME! Looking back it probably wasn't worth much at all, but I loved it and at the time it was worth so much.

I love your monkey card, it is so cute! I will have to show my son, he thinks he has a monkey brain. LOL!

Michelle (mla1111) said...

Hi Maren! I love your gift set...it is so adorable! The monkey is so cute and the box turned out great. I would have to say that the most memorful gift that I recvd would be my engagement ring :), as well as a lamb puppet that my grandmother gave to some 2nd cousins years back that was given to me when she passed so I can give it to my children some day.. I feel like I have a gift from her & that my baby will have a little piece of her even though she has left us. I had a thing for lambs at that time so when they handed it to me I felt like it was a sign of sorts.

Chrissy said...

The most memorable is the diamond, green amthyst(however you spell it) that my husband gave me. He had it hanging in the tree. I didn't think he had a gift for me because his brother passed away 2 days before Christmas. It was a very hard time and he still powered through for me and the kids. (I'm crying now thinking about it) What a wonderful man he is!!!!

Betty-Ann said...

Fabulous projects...love the monkey! For my 16th birthday, my parents gave me a cedar (hope) chest. They had my uncle make it, and he used cherry wood from my grandpa's bush for the outside box. It holds so many treasures!

When my husband and i were dating in college, for my birthday he went out and bought me a claude monet print, framed it, wrote a sweet note on the back of it and put it in my room to find after our date...it was really sweet of him because i was an art history major and monet was one of my favorite painters. One of those thoughtful gifts. :)

My most memorable gift was given to me by my mother on Christmas Eve 1989. She had passed away earlier in the day from her 8 yr. battle with cancer. I was 7 and 1/2 mos. pregant at the time. That night my oldest sister gave me the gift from my mother. It was a beautiful pale pink outfit to bring home my daughter in from the hospital after her birth. My mother was the most unselfish person I have ever known. Even while she was dying she was thinking of me.

What a great gift for a new baby! It's hard to say the most memorable gift I received - all of them are special in different ways. I think the most memorable is probably a lava lamp Santa got me for Christmas because my Dad was so excited he picked something out (instead of my Mom) and then I guessed what it was while it was wrapped! He was so surprised I guessed it although he was a bit disappointed that it wasn't a big surprise to me!

Ashley Harris said...

The most memorable gift would have to be my leather rocker recliner my in laws bought for me. My FIL just called me up one day lat August when I was extremely pregnant and hot and asked if I knew what day it was, and I answer "uh, Friday?" He then replies, "It's Ashley Harris appreciation day." He took me to the furniture store and let me pick out any recliner I wanted. It was the best!

Great project Maren,

the greatest gift I've ever received is my wonderful loving husband. He is my number 1 fan, the most amazing father and my best friend. He truly is a gift from above. Thanks for the chance to win some amazing goodies.

Love your projects. The most memorable gifts I have received are the beautiful wildflowers and baby pinecones my boys used to bring me when they were little.

Love the bungle jungle paper--and the monkey gift card is adorable!!!

That's a nice drawer thingy you made there! Love it! I wish I actually got projects like that finished instead of just dreaming of them! XD

Tammy said...

i love all the projects that you did! The most memorable gift I ever got was from my hubby - it was our 2nd or 3rd anniversary and he bought me my first Coach bag - that I had showed him in the window at the Coach store! It was a HUGE surprise because we were NOT exchanging gifts that year!

Gracie Ann Tan said...

What an adorable gift set. Love the fun colors too! One of the most memorable gifts that I received would be my little girl. She's the best gift God has ever given me and I love her to bits!

Bonnie said...

My daughter has scrapbooked for many years. I bought her a cricut about 4 yrs. ago. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever see me making anything. This past Christmas she bought ME a Cricut. Now we scrap together. Love all you ladies. Super artists.

StampinginKansas said...

My most memorable gift would be the gifts my kids made when they were in elementary school. Loved seeing those clay projects and the huge smiles on their faces when I opened them.

Cindy said...

I love the gift you made! There is nothing better than homemade gifts! I recieved a scrapbook from my sister in law that had all the pages done like a quilt. It is so special to me!!

Love those projects that you made. They are fabulous. Most memorable gift, is a rose that my husband gave me. It is silk and it came with a note telling me that he will love me until the last petal falls from the rose. (which will never happen, so he will love me forever) Ahhhhh!

I love what you did with the Sassafrass Lass! That set is just adorable! I can't wait to try & duplicate your GC holder! Fun!

I know it might sound cheezie or like I'm sucking up, but the best gift I've ever received is my little girl! After 3 years of trying & 6 miscarriages, she was lucky number 7! She's now 3 & keeps me super busy, but also is an endless source of scrapbooking material!!
Thanks for the chance!

DMiller said...

My favorite gifts to receive are the ones that are "homemade". I appreciate and cherish the time and care involved in making things from scratch.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Jennifer Moore said...

These gifts are ADORABLE! Oh how I love that Bungle Jungle paper! My most favorite gift I have received was a song my husband wrote for my oldest son....he wrote it, arranged it, and recorded it on a CD for me that I opened on Mother's Day. I cried, it was just too sweet!

carol h said...

The most memorable gift I have received was a clock my daughter made me for Christmas this year. She scrapbooked it and added pictures of family and friends--I just love seeing it every day. Love your gift set you made--how clever.

Natasha said...

One of my most memorable gifts was a sketch book I received for my 13th birthday from my mom. It became my mission to fill that book with all sorts of portraits and doodles. I was kind of sad once I did finally fill it.

Linda said...

what a great gift for your student. Love your ideas. Like so many others, at this point in my life my most memorable gifts are the unexpected thoughtful gifts from my boys, 20 & 23.

katrynka said...

This is a difficult question... I think my wonderful nikon camera that my husband gave me for my wedding gift!

Queen Mary said...

First time to your blog -- won't be the last! I love what you did with such beautiful papers! My most memorable gift was not really a paper crafting gift, but it was from my girl scout troop -- they made me a sweatshirt with all their names -- and the title Queen Mary -- so that's what I use! :)

mitch47 said...

What wonderful inspiration pieces. I can't wait to get to some of them, especially the quick cards set! TFS.

Nancy C. said...

I love these projects!

ArlaMo said...

My sweet husband has given me lots of memorable gifts over the years, but I have to say he really outdid himself this year. For Valentine's, he gave me the gift of a housecleaning service for a year!! Now there's a man who knows how to make his wife smile!

Leslie Rodriguez said...

The most memorable gift I recieved is a heart shaped engraved box with a watch inside from my parents for my graduation.

Wendy Sue said...

What a beautiful gift set - I love it! My most memorable gift was the $1 bill my 2 year old daughter took out of her bank, wrapped up and gave to me for my birthday. I still have it in my jewelry box - I could NEVER spend it...it's worth so much more than a dollar. :o)

Penny said...

My most memorable gift is a quilt
made for me by my grandmother. I'll treasure it always. Thanks for the opportunity! Diane

Angela said...

The most memorable gift I ever received was a lovely framed print that was much more expensive than anything my parents ever bought for Christmas presents. I had been oohing over it for months but had no idea they would ever buy it for me.

Sara said...

What a beautiful gift you have created for that special baby boy!

The most memorable gift I ever received was a blanket made for My Husband and I for our wedding. A great friend of the family took the time to make a blessing blanket for us- 3 years later we are still happily married with no complaints ;)

cheryln said...

My most memorable gift was a little treasure hunt my children set up for me. It wasn't even on my birthday or any special occasion. My husband and I had to go to a meeting and when we came home they surprised us with the treasure hunt that led us all over the house with notes and little handmade gifts that they had left for us. That was fifteen years ago and I still have all the little notes and gifts. I adore the gift set you made! She is sure to love it! I would love a chance to win the cricut expression!
