May Stationery Giveaway

We are so fortunate to have such generous sponsors. For the May Stationery Giveaway we have a little bit of everything; pen, postcards, note cards, journals, magnets, print, luggage tags, a book, bookmarks, musical note cards and a handy bag to carry all of this in.

The Rifle Paper Company has donated this colorful box of Thank You cards. They also have a lovely card collection of monogram designs that you will see on the homepage of their website.
Once again Product Superior has offered unique giveaways with this postcard set of Moving postcards and a print ready for framing.
New this month is Sean McMahon's musical greeting cards. Letters & Journals wrote an article on how Sean got started making these unique cards. You can read Sean's article here.
Papaya! Arts has been a generous sponsor of this monthly giveaway and we've also done some individual giveaways of their product at the Letters & Journals Facebook page. This month they have a set of note cards and envelopes- both beautifully designed.
Tilia Press has also been super generous with their second donation to the monthly giveaway. This month they have donated 3 sets of box note cards, 2 bookmarks and a butterfly bag to carry all of your stationery items. How cool is that?
Donated this month from Crane Stationery is a set of note cards with one of my favorite designs- the antique map. And you can never go wrong with lined envelopes.
The Bonnie Marcus Collection is a new sponsor to our giveaway. They donated these brightly colored, cupcake themed note pad (Life is Sweet) and Notes on the Go purse-sized notepad.
The Puro Papel luggage tags are customizable and come with a felt marker for writing your information on the backside of the tag.
Chewy Tulip sent in these miniature cards from her Etsy store. Being an animal lover, Chewy has many animal themed products on her site.
The brightly colored cards below are from a new sponsor, Zucchini Fish. These blank note cards should bring a smile to anyone who receives one.
Survival by Design has once again contributed some of their unique people cards (notice they have no eyes) as well as a couple magnets they included with their prize.
The old books have been donated by Book Journals and the journals have been filled with blank, smooth, white paper (excellent quality) and then bound into blank books. The front and back are part of the original book binding and also they usually have some pages included in the book from the original that are mixed amongst the blank pages I'm going to do a blog post and a separate contest offering 1 or 2 of these one-of-a-kind journals where I can relay more information about Book Journals.
Another first time sponsor is Wimzie Prints who sent in this selection of male-oriented cards just in time for Father's Day for the man/men in your life.
Who doesn't want to own a new pen? Named the Floral Silhouette, this sleek roller ball pen writes a fine line (0.7) in black ink and has been donated by Peter Pauper Press. The pen is nicely weighted (solid brass) with a beautiful lacquer finish.
Peter Pauper Press also donated the Little Black Book of Paris as shown below. This book is filled with wonderful information about the romantic city and includes fold-out maps and insider tips. The book has the most enchanting black and white illustrations and is a delight to hold and read. Trust me.
This 2011-12 Day Planner was supplied by one of the original sponsors, Journaling Arts.The bright orange color will keep this planner the focus of any day. Even sitting on my desk now, my eyes are continually drawn to it and I want to touch it and open it. With willpower I keep it safely tucked inside its protective wrapping.
And there you have it- the awesome May Stationery Giveaway that just keeps getting better every month thanks to generous, caring sponsors.

Did they include anything to wipe up the drool?

I will have to keep that in mind! I know exactly what you mean and I often have a difficult time letting go of these fine items.

I should consider having the winner post a photo of them using their winning stationery items.
