Givaways to share the excitment of my new AccuCut die designs

Hi everyone!
I've been so excited to be able to share with you both of my new die designs from AccuCut, I thought it would be fun to host a giveaway and  get to send out  some of both the pre cut die shapes   to a number of people..... say...
12?? ( 6 of each)   Sounds good :)   
Read on, and I'll tell you more.  ( she says in her most intriguing voice) lol
I first shared my new bow die.  It comes in two sizes, which you'll be able to see next to each other in one of the photos below.    The bow I used on this project is  the larger size of the two.  This size works great on altered projects while the small one is perfect for cards and tags. You can see more projects with this die and even a short video here on the AccuCut Craft Blog.
The yummy papers I used for this project are new papers from Fancy Pants Designs." Park Bench"

                                          I made the box to hold a little mini album.



I will draw 6 winners to send a set of 4 pre-cut (un-assembled bows)  2 of each size cut from different patterned papers ( all will be different patterned papers, not necessarily these)


( I will also be getting these back into my etsy soon!)


*************************************************************************
Okay, here is another sample of the second die. It's a Portrait Frame design, but it can be used in a number of different ways.         I love this photo of my mom and dad :)

Papers are from Seven Gypsies
Stamps on the inside are from Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage- "Cherish" Clear Art Stamps

You can see a number of other ways to use this die HERE a previous post.   It can be connected at the top, on the side, so that it can open like I did above, used on a layout, made in to an album, ect

I've cut the pieces out of paper covered chipboard, so there are enough to create a double, free standing piece..as I have above, with a few extra pieces also.
I will draw six winners to send these to also.

So...
12 winners will be drawn Next Friday January 25th.   All you have to do is leave a comment in this post between now and then.

6 people will get pre cut bows
6 people will get pre cut Portrait Frames




Hope your day is fantastic!

LOVE the frame and that photo of your mother & father is so cool. I love old photos like that especially if they are someone that you really know. Have one of my grandparents but it's in a huge oval bubble frame, wish I was brave enough to get it out of there and scan it, ha! Congrats on your new dies, they look so very fun!!!
