Welcome to Freebie Friday and the final day (sigh) of our Cards & Gifts Week celebration! Hopefully you’ve enjoyed your sneak peek of 225 Cards & Gifts both here and on Moxie Fab World. If anything, we hope this fantastic special issue is at the top of your wish list, if not shopping list!

For those of you just joining us today, make sure to read all of our nifty gifty posts this week. From chatting with rising star Maren Benedict to dressing up gift cards, “wrapping” with Kim Kesti, and making wishes with Susan Opel, we’ve had a grand ol’ time! And special thanks go out to all the manufacturers who’ve donated their fabulous product for our daily giveaways! As always, your generosity is much appreciated!

Today I’m going to spotlight the last two chapters of 225 Cards & Gifts – home décor and miscellaneous gifts! If you thought we had shown you every gifty thing you can do with paper, think again! To me, these projects personify the word “gift” and would make a lovely addition in anyone’s home.

Here’s one of my favorite projects from our Heartfelt Gifts of Home Décor section:

And who wouldn’t love to receive this beautiful ensemble from our Gifts from the Heart section?:

Are you ready for our unbelievably huge giveaway? I hope you’re sitting down because if you’re not, you soon will be! Today we’re giving you 12 chances to win one of these incredible prizes from our very generous friends at Provo Craft:

Think of all the gifty gifts you could create with The Cricut Expression:

Or all the albums you could creatively concoct with the Your Story Binder/Laminator:      

                              …or how ’bout all the custom-made t-shirts, hand bags, and home decor you could create and give using the Yudu Screen-Printing System?

I wasn’t lying about the prizes, right? They’re HUGE! Since we’re teaming up with Cath today on Moxie Fab World, she’s asked 10 amazing paper craftin’ gals to create a never-seen-before gifty project to get you totally inspired for all your paper crafted gift-giving.
