i-top brad maker giveaway

Allison will be back later today with the WINNER of our Gurlge pot. I can’t even tell you how delightful it is to read through your comments that reveal so many wonderful sounds. Thank YOU so much for playing along!

I’m going to cut right to the chase and tell you that today’s giveaway is HUGE.


The creative team at imaginisce has invented an amazing new tool, called the i-top brad maker and they have given me a complete set to share with one of you!


The set includes:

1. the brad making tool itself
2. one package of small, medium and large brad “daddies” (the actual brad hardware)
3. one small, medium and large topper punch (to perfectly punch paper for topping your brads)
4. a pad of pre-made paper toppers (not shown in my photo above)
5. a super-cool carrying case that holds the tool and your supply of daddies

I know. HUGE.


Trust me when I say making your own brads is really FUN.

OK … you have ONE FULL WEEK to avail yourself of this giveaway. All you need to do is leave a comment with your name (first name only is fine) and where you live, BUT … since I am working on making stacyjulian.com a really great place to visit and I want as many people to come and play as possible. I’m going to ask you to tell at least one other person about my site/blog before you enter.

And … if you read my blog via a reader, please make sure you are subscribed to all three blogs …


Help me spread the word and you could walk away with a HUGE gift worth well over $100.



  1. I don’t need an I-top, so don’t enter me in the contest
    - but wanted to say that I had the opportunity to work with these gals at both CKUs this year – and this is such a fun and nifty tool!

    Hi Stacy! Of course I told all my fellow scrappers about the awesome new website! I’ve also been sharing the Big Picture Scrapbooking/Photo Freedom philosophy to any who seem even vaguely scrap-blocked, since I was swept away a year or so ago at CKC in King of Prussia, PA. I LOVE my Library of Memories and I’m finding myself loving scrapping more than ever! Thank you!
    This tool may not be a “must-have” in my book, but it is definitely one that would get a lot of use by this patterned paper fanatic. Good Luck, fellow scrappers!!

  35. I didn;t realize there were 3 blogs to subscribe to, so that is first on my list!

    I love the idea of the i-top! I want one. I am trying to decide if I should just buy it, put it on my Christmas list in hopes I’ll get on in …oh almost 3 months….or just hunt down every give away in hopes of winning one.
