A Blog Hop, A Sale, and Prizes ... Oh My!

So much to share, give away, and announce! So read on!

First a vintage treasure, a Moth-ene Tin in the most amazing colors, altered with a mini inside. The autumn sun was amazing this day, so I'm sorry if I'm blinding you with light and shadow:

The tin was a find - there were some up for sale at the JBS Flea Market - and I snagged one quick.  The Mercantile often has sweet little pieces of vintage that are perfect for altering or displaying photos.  New Mercantile Flea Markets are up on the 1st and 15th of each month.  Set your calendar! You'll never know what you'll find!

The mini inside: I used favorite photos of ds from 12 years ago - embellished with JBS Vellum Butterflies and JBS Stickers ...

Want to increase your stash of JBS Butterflies and more?  There is an incredible sale going on right now:

Buy for yourself, for Christmas gifts, for classes - you can never have enough of this goodness! Find them here!
Giveaway Alert! On the JBS Inspiration blog we will be giving away a mega kit of the
customer's choice.

There are still a few Halloween Kits designed by Jenni left in the Mercantile.  You can see them here.  Giveaway Alert! Jenni is giving away the display she made below on her blog.  The kit for this one has sold out and there are just a few left of the others - check them out!

There's more!
Did you know that you can get Die-Cut Files at the Mercantile now?  Yes you can! Find them here with new ones coming up each month!
Giveaway Alert!  I'm giving away a set of the October die cuts designed by Lisa Dickinson on my blog.
