Cotton, Silk and Candy…

Published by at 9 06 pm under Blog Candy,Crafty Secrets Projects

…Blog Candy. Cotton Scraps by Crafty Secrets and Silk Ribbon by May Arts are a wonderful combo, but when we add the Candy, they all could be yours!!! Let me explain why I’m celebrating with this Blog Candy offering. Many of you know that I’ve been selling May Arts ribbon at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store (real creative name, huh?), which is located on the TAB above my blog header. It’s just a simple little store with some ribbon that I love and use daily. I got so many questions always on my ribbon and bows, I just thought you might like some of what I use, so that’s how that got started. Well, my store will remain primarily ribbon, but from time to time I will be adding a few things that go well with my beloved ribbons, and right at the top of that list are the Cotton Scraps by Crafty Secrets. I have just added them to The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store where you may see them all. You’ll have to scroll all the way to the bottom, but they’re worth the scrolling!!! And here’s my Blog Candy offering today:


The winner will receive one sheet of Cotton Scraps (Flowers), along with the card I made about a week ago using the Lilac image from this sheet (card details here), and 10 yards of 1.25″ wide 100% Silk Ribbon by May Arts. You’ll get 2 yards each of the 5 colors shown in the photo (Violet, Lavender, Pink, Celery, Yellow). To enter all you have to do is leave a comment, telling me which of the Cotton Scraps (seen here, scroll down) is your favorite. Then come back HERE to comment. That’s it. A winner will be selected by a random number generator on Wednesday night (4/29)at about 10 p.m.EST. Good luck and have a great week! I’ll be back soon with a new card to show you!

If you’d like to see more samples of cards I’ve done with Cotton Scraps, just click here.

P.S. — Playing around withmy Blog Header — gosh, I had no clue it was so easy to change it — fun!!! Now you might see it changing all the time — LOL!!!

  15. Kim says:

    The Feathered Friends one is really cute.

  16. Alicia says:

    Oh my goodness, I love these! My favorite has to be #11 Flowers. I *adore* lilacs!! Just beautiful!

  17. Michelle says:

    Flowers is my favorite, influenced partly by the gorgeous lilac card you made! But I like the girls’ night out one, too – that would be fun on a scrap page.

  18. Robyn says:

    Hi Sharon! Are Aussie’s allowed to enter? I love the flower set the best! Love your ribbon too ….Thanks! Robyn

  19. KellyL says:

    What a fun addition to your ribbons! I love the #14 Cooking pkg – looks like I could pair it up with the new Early Bird collection from Cosmo Cricket, hmmmm.

  20. Cathleen says:

    I love the cotton scraps! I think the flowers are my favorite

  21. Elaine says:

    I love all the cotton scraps but cooking is especially charming!! May Arts is the best value, isn’t it!? love the card too!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Are you able to get Midori ribbon maybe in the future?

  22. jose says:

    Just love your new header.. and ‘wow’ all those beautiful ribbons. Thank you for the chance of blog candy. #15 Feathered Friends they look so cute would be my choice.

  23. Sharon D says:

    My favorite is #11 Flowers (and yay! that one is in the blog candy), closely followed by Feathered Friends. All the new ribbon is gorgeous! Love your card!

  24. ~Carolyn says:

    Hi Sharon, I absolutely love your work and check your blog several times a week. In my usual fashion, I can’t decide which cotton scrap is my favorite. I alway chose fairies/angels/cherubs (things with wings), children, flowers, and love — so, that means #5 Romance, #9 Fairy and #11 Flowers are tied!

  25. I just found your ribbon store yesterday and love them all. Purchase planning is hard to do but I want lots of your ribbons. Love your new header…I may have to try this out. Thanks for the chance at this great candy. I love the flower sheet the most.

  26. Grace Cooper says:

    Flowers are always a hit with me, so I’d say “Flowers”! Course, they are all just yummy!!!

  27. Kathleen says:

    They are all my favourties but if I have to narrow it down it would have to be #15 Feathered Friends. That row of owls is too cute.
    Love your new bog header, that ribbon is your trademark.

  28. NY2TXPATTI says:

    Hi Sharon, I always love checking out your creations! Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy. The Cotton Scraps look great! I think that #15 Feathered Friends might be my favorite.

  29. Angie says:

    I like the Fairy Cotton Scraps the best. They’re all cute though, it was hard to choose one!

  30. Maryann says:

    Hi Sharon. This is the very first time, I try this, as Iยดm very new to this inhere, and still havenยดt figured all out about how things work, but Iยดm learning a bit every day ha ha. Thanks sooo much for all your wonderful inspiration with your cards, theyยดre all wonderful, and now this? Iยดm truely amazed. I went to look at the ribbons and the sheets, and itยดs sooo overwhelming with sooo much beauty all in one place. All the sheets are sooo great, but if I have to choose some it must be the baby, the fall, the romance and the cooking sheets. Theyยดre all just wonderful, and I can definately see a lot of potential in those. And all these wonderful ribbons? WAUW WAUW WAUW. What a pitty I live so far from there. ha ha ha.
    HAve a great day to all crafting friends inhere.
    Biiig hugs Maryann

  32. Diana Downey says:

    Wow – it is sooooo difficult to pick just one…but I will have to say the flowers #11 is my favorite. They are all so beautiful.

  33. Luvcreatingcards says:

    Hello Sharon,
    The Cotton Scraps are all sooo pretty it’s not easy to choose between them all. But if I have to choose a favorite one, then it’s got to be # 9 the Fairy sheet. The ribbons are gorgious too. I love the organzy
    ones especially. Your sample card that you have created is beautiful and I love the decorated pin that you have made and attached. It’s always fun visiting you blog. I don’t always manage to visit each day, so I always look forward to catching up with what you have added. Thank you for the fab ideas, projects and brilliant inspirations that you share with us.
    warmest best wishes,

  34. Carolyn G. says:

    Love the new blog header! I have been looking at those cotton scraps, you make it look beautiful! I thought I liked the baby girl the best, but the flowers are great, and so is fall, and so is feathered friends!

  35. #11 Flowers for me. I may make cards and send them to myself with these! LOL

  36. Beth says:

    They are all so cute, but my favorite is the Cooking package! Second choice is Winter. Thanks for a chance to win some candy! Beth

    It is hard to choose one. I would have to go with # 11. I love flowers and have several gardens with all different flowers. As always your projects are awesome.

  50. Karen (DE) says:

    Sharon, I love your banner! My fav cotton scrap is flowers but I love so many of them – feathered friends is probably a close second.

  51. Barb T (scs btexpress) says:

    I love those cotton scraps and your card is just gorgeous. My favorites

    All the Cotton Scraps are so beautiful, but the FAIRY one really caught my eye…I have a few projects in my head that I could make with those! ๐Ÿ™‚

  53. Deb Rymer says:

    Sharon, I like so many. But I’d have to say Spring would be my favorite. My friend used that soft, little chick on a card for me – and it is just the sweetest image. Thanks for the opportunity! Also, just love all the ribbon you have for sale – equally hard to choose a favorite among those…

  54. Helen says:

    I must be feeling springy because although I love all of the Crafty Secrets..Feathered Friends caught my eye this morning!! I love seeing the birds return…and being able to feed (without fighting the snow) Helen

  55. Ann Pavlicek says:

    Hi Sharon,
    I love the cotton scraps. My favorite is Flowers. Thanks so much for sharing your talent on your website. I look at it each day. I, too, love ribbon.

  56. Carol says:

    Oh Sharon – just visiting your blog is candy in itself! But since you ‘insist’ on giving away these beautiful things, if I am lucky enough to win I would choose #15 Feathered Friends. Thank you for sharing your wonderful finds and creations!

  57. Donna says:

    I have to say, after some flip-flopping, that Feathered Friends is my favorite. I love the Summer, Flowers, Baby Girl, & Family. I guess you could say they are all great! I have been getting a ribbon order together over the last few days, and it’s funny that you should have this give-away now. Oh well, not to worry…I never win! Thanks for the chance, and for sharing your wonderful talent!

  58. Mary Ellen says:

    I like them all..but the Fall is my favorite. Thanks for the opportunity!
    Mary Ellen

  59. Sheri says:

    I just can’t decide between Feathered Friends – ok probably my favorite – and Flowers. I love them both and they go hand in hand. I can just imagine all of the fun things I could do with them. Thanks for the chance to win and for letting my imagination run wild!

Once again Sharon, thanks so much so sharing your fantastic work. Happy Day! Jean

  117. cards4u says:

    Wow! What a great give away, Sharon! Thank yo ufor doing it!
    I love Feathered friends the best froom the Cotton Scarps!
    Good luck to everybody!

  131. Susan Hughes says:

    I love anything vintage so it is very hard to pick a favorite. I probably like Halloween (but only by the slimmest of margins) best becaue it has a black cat just like we have. I always enjoy your cards and project…they are so beautiful! Thanks for the chance to win this marvelous blog candy.

  132. sandra Potts says:

    I love the flower scraps, with cooking and feathered friends coming in a close second! I also love all the cards that you do. So elegant!


  133. Sandie Luck says:

    Feathered Friends is my favorite just now as I hear a loudy chirping bird near my window singing all about SRPING here in Minnesota!!! YAY!!
    THANK YOU for the opportunity to win such splendid treasures!! The ribbons are sooooo BEAUTIFUL~especially the silks!!!

  134. Darsana says:

    I love the lilac one on the card you made, but I am partial to sunflowers or daisy, so I would love to do something equally creative and beautiful with one of those.

  135. mary marsh says:

    Well I like them all and picking a favorite was difficult but I think the winter set just barely squeeked out ahead of the others. I love the Christmas season and these would be perfect for card making. Thanks for the chance to win, Sharon

  136. sandie994 says:

    I love the flowers!! ( can’t grow them so love to make things with them). My second choice would be Winter. Love the Santa. Great candy!!

  137. Charlee Gunderson says:

    It’s a really tough choice because there are some adorable ones. But I have to say the Flowers are my favorite. My mojo kicked into high gear when I first saw them. But I also have to say that Winter came in a close 2nd. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent.

  138. Pattyjo says:

    I love the “Flowers”, it looks so much like the gorgeous card you made! Your work is “Off the charts” gorgeous! You are such an artist and your ribbon is so beautiful!!!!
    Thank you for the chance to win one of your cards!
    Pattyjo ๐Ÿ™‚

  139. Kathy McDonald says:

    Flowers is definitely my favorite, but I also love Cooking, Spring, and Fairies. What fun! And your card is gorgeous, as always!

    I’m really enjoying using the striped ribbon I ordered from your store a while back. I haven’t tried the silk yet, but it looks beautiful.

  140. OMGosh!! Love the new blog header!!! And I love the candy!! I’d have to say the Flowers is my favorite so I sure hope I win it, LOL!! Thanks!

  141. Pick me! Pick me! – it’s impossible to choose a favorite when I favor them all. But! if you insist, then it would be between the Baby Boy images and the Cooking sheet. I’m thrilled to see you carrying these cotton scraps.

  142. michelle gall says:

    wow those are so cool i like the love one because keith and i are so much in love ๐Ÿ˜‰ lol heck thats all i think about he he he they all are really cool you are the best sharon

  143. Debbie says:

    I love all of them so it is hard to pick a favorite. I guess I would have to say the Halloween is my favorite if forced to make a choice!!

  144. Tammy says:

    I like the Winter one. To me Christmas is always in vintage…..

  145. Cynthia says:

    So many great choices but I will have to go with the floral one as my favorite! Thanks for the chance to win!

  146. Mary says:

    Wow! They’re all lovely, but Spring would be my favorite of all your cotton selections. But all the others are just as lovely, IMO.
    -Mary B.

  147. Charlene H. says:

    I have never used Cotton Scraps before but it would probably be fun to try them. I think my favorite is the Flowers one. I love anything flowers. I would love a chance to win some of that May Arts ribbon as well. It looks absolutely gorgeous!

  148. Bonnie B. says:

    I absolutely love “Flowers”, I’ve used Cotton Scraps & May Arts ribbon before and I never tire of using these fabulous products.

  149. Joyce across the pond says:

    The flowers are just wonderful….they remind me of what Princess Grace of Monaco said once, something like this….”how can you look into the heart of a flower and say there is no God”. She was passionate about pressing flowers and made large arrangements which she stored in a memory book or some such thing. I would love to win your ribbon….it looks sumptious!
    Thanks for the opportunity.

  150. Toni says:

    Feathered Friends…Christmas….Flowers…..it’s so hard to pick just one!!

  151. Ad K. says:

  152. Becki aka queenoe on SCS says:

    Wow there are so many really nice one’s. Was taken with #10 Fall until I saw #11 Flowers. Love #13 Winter also, but Flowers are my first love so Flowers win hands down. You know I have something similar to this that someone gave me, have to go dig out my box and see what exactly I have. Thanks for the inspiration Sharon!!! Oh yeah, and the chance to win Blog candy doesn’t hurt either! LOL!

  153. Toni Storie says:

    I think that #13 Winter is my favorite of the whole bunch. Second to that, I really like #11 Flowers. Thanks for the chance to win!

  154. jorie says:

    Wow! The Cotton Scraps are a super addition to our stash. Inspiration galore as I ooohhhed and ahhhed over all of them. My favs would be the flowers – and to combine them with your fabulous ribbons (especially the silks). I can also see the Halloween and Christmas as favs in the Fall – and to combine those with the stripped ribbon – a sure winner. Also, love your blog, visit it a couple times a week.

  155. Jessica G. says:

    What a wonderful vintage embellishment! My favorite has to be ‘Feathered Friends’, but I really like them all!

    Thanks for the chance to win some candy ๐Ÿ™‚

  157. Heather M says:

    This is a toughy! I absolutely adore the ‘Flowers’ and the ‘Feathered Friends’ comes in as a ‘5 minute twin’ close second.
    Crafty Secrets has such wonderful products and truly fantastic customer service, which is quite rare for online purchasing. Btw, I also, adore working with luscious silks! I’m saving my Cdn pennies cos I want a few…
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  158. LeAnne says:

    Cool! I love them all, truthfully, but the cooking one is one that caught my eye today!

  159. Lisa Escamilla says:

    Hard to pick, they are all great. I guess if I had to chose one it would be #11 Flowers.

  162. C Burke says:

    I will say “Flowers” although I like them all!

  164. Val Pass says:

    I think Winter is my favorite. I am tired of the winter weather and should be ready for spring, but I just love the old fashioned santas in Winter.

  165. Paula C says:

    Gosh, too pick only one…that’s difficult, I love each of them! If I had to get “picky” I’d chose feathered friends…the birds are soo wonderful and quite versatile…thank you so much for a chance to win!

  183. Sheila says:

    Hi Sharon,
    If I had to chose just one I guess it would #9, the Fairy package. The ribbons are really gorgeous but the best part for me would be winning your beautiful card. I have always admired your work and to actually get a chance to see it IRL would be awesome. Thanks for the opportunity of maybe winning this great package. Sheila
