$50 Giveway from A Cherry on Top!

How exciting!  A Cherry on Top is sponsoring a $50.00 shopping spree to a lucky reader of my blog!  I'm really excited for one of you!  I found A Cherry on Top maybe a year or so ago and love it there.  They run specials often and have sweet ladies on the message board and lots of challenges to get you going.  The best part is hunting for cherries (or Christmas ornaments right now!).  Collect the cherries as you browse the merchandise and cash them in for discounts later.  You can also collect cherries for uploading layouts in the gallery, participating on the message board, leaving product reviews, challenges, and for ordering.  The shipping is super fast, and if I ever had a question, I get a fast response.  A perfect place I love to shop and visit!  So I'm thrilled they are offering a reader here a shopping spree of $50.00.

I'll show you my latest addition to the smallest December Daily I'm working on, 2 x 2 square pockets.  I've been working in 3 x 3 pockets, plus a homemade book, all from October Afternoon.  The papers and bits for the 2 x 2 pockets were so cute I had to try it, too, and got an album and sleeves to go along with it.




So follow my blog, and leave a comment telling me what you would shop for if you win the $50.00 shopping spree!  And stay tuned, because I will have another shopping spree in a week or so - ACOT is so generous, they are sponsoring two $50.00 sprees.  I just don't have enough kind words about them.  

If you do order, please tell them I sent you.  If  you are a new customer to ACOT and mention my name, I believe we will each get 1,000 cherries, which equals five dollars off your order.  I'm not sure if that program is still running, but it's worth a try. I would like them to know I sent you though.  

I love to check there during the day and click the "new products" button and see what is in or what is coming in soon.  Stop by on the message boards and say hi if you like, upload some December Daily or whatever you're working on, too - everyone's super nice.

Well, that's it for today!  Have a really great week and I'll see you tomorrow with another layout.  We'll run the contest this week and wrap it up on Friday.  I'll draw a number from Random.org then forward the winner's info to ACOT so they can credit your account.  Good luck and have fun!

to be completely honest since I buy so much for myself..I would probably let my oldest daughter who is an intern at the Central Phoenix Urban Ministry spend it to buy goodies to for the kids she works with in a program called Art Adventure....I am always sending her stuff (no sales tax in Oregon..haha) I look forward to looking more at your blog :)

Emily Adams said...

Oh wow - Thanks for the chance to win! I have my eye on some of those pretty new Valentine goodies! <3

Isbaha said...

I never ordered from them... I do hunt for cherries, but shipping is always too expensive for France (and too long, I can't wait that much !lol). but if I order one day, I will ask you your code, good idea !

Lisa Rukin Swift said...

Love how your page came out, Melissa, and how you used the white banners for your journaling!

Melissa Smith said...

Flomster, that's sweet. In the meantime, I would be glad to get some if my own personal stash under control to send to her if you think she would want it! Email me at smith2581@sbcglobal.net with her address if you would like and I will get it to her. Xoxo Melissa

lil gik said...

Love what you did with the 2x2 pockets, I'll have to give that size a go! Oh, I have a cart started at ACOT :P

Melissa Smith said...

I think I noticed when they run shipping sales they take $10.00 off for internationals! Plus cashing in your cherries is like getting free shipping :)

Leslie Webster said...

Love you page and how you used the banner strips to create titles. It's been a long time since I shopped at ACOT, but they are a great little store.

PsyDCarolyn said...

LOVE LOVE the little squares you're using for this design! Your pages are SOOO cute and there's so many options to add little details. I LOVE ACOT! If I could win a $50 shopping spree, I'd automatically buy the entire new Christmas collection from Echo Park - 'Tis the Season. It is by far my FAVORITE Christmas line EVER! I already have a few sheets, but I now I find myself in need of the entire kit for my December daily I'm gonna be working on soon. I also recently acquired the Heidi Swapp Christmas pack, so I'd like to get all the little doodads and embellishments that go along with that. And then finally, some baby boy papers, to finally get started working on my little boy's 1st year baby book, now that he just turned 2! Thank you SOOOO much for a chance to win a fabulous shopping spree! I am following on google+

Wow! What a great giveaway! How generous of them, and thanks for introducing me to their site. I am from the UK and hadn't heard of them before. I'd definitely need to top up on some albums, I have so many layouts waiting for homes, and as I'm sure we all know any spare scrappy money I have goes on pretty paper, not albums ;)

Love your DD by the way :)

blbabe1234 said...

ACOT is the BEST place and ONLY place to buy scrappy goodies! I've been shopping there since July 2010 and have never ever been disappointed. Thank you so much for the awesome giveway.

BTW, I'm blbabe1234 on the ACOT member board. And Melissa - LOVE your layout. Its FABULOUS! I'm following you now via email.

Christine said...

Hi! Christinec68 here and I completely agree with everything you wrote about ACOT! Huge selection, great service, great message board & gallery! If I won the $50 I would probably use it on some roller date stamps, some stencils and some punches.

Ange said...

Love your page! Those little rudolph cookies are so cute!!
I love ACOT, their customer service is the bomb!!
I would probably go browsing through that new products section and find lots of awesome things to get, but I don't have any one thing in mind at the moment (except washi, I always need more washi lol)
Thanks so much! Oh and I love that you have an email follow option!

Merrilee said...

I love what you are doing with the 2x2 pockets! And how generous of ACOT!

Liana S. said...

I love ACOT. Great store. If I won the GC, I would purchase more Echo Park, because I just can't get enough.

Erika @ Scrapbook Obsession Blog said...

Hi Melissa! I followed you on Bloglovin'. This is so generous of ACOT. You know a lot of the Peeps shop there but I have resisted because I … well, my name is Erika and I have a WEE bit of a scrap shopping addiction :) But after reading all the nice things you have to say about ACOT, I went to check them out.

You asked what we would spend the $50 GC on … Well, I found plenty! But I'll narrow it down to: October Afternoon "Milk Money", "Egg Nog", and "Apple Cider." I *lurve* OA but haven't purchased any of their new lines due to the holidays. I would also love the WRMK "Hip Hip Hooray" journaling card pack. See? I got problems, girl!! LOL Love your blog and your projects. Keep up the wonderful work :)

Thx for the chance to win! I would buy the WRMK boxed sets, they look amazing!

Alison said...

Love your pages! The 2"x2" is adorable! I would use the ACOT $$ to get some new CHA releases when they come out in January. Granted I also have a wish list with a few hundred dollars of stuff, so I'm sure it would be easy to spend :)

Laurie said...

Great blog! Like Flomster, I might give the $50 to one of my daughters. Or, I might use it for a new round of project life. You have peaked my curiosity with the 2x2.

scrapcreator said...

Love what you are doing with your DD!
Thank you and ACOT for the chance to win. I would love to pick up the Daily Grind for a Month in Review Album.

Numberfool said...

Love to shop at ACOT - I would use my $50 on all the new lines coming out for spewing and summer! My favorite seasons!!!

christinec74 said...

I hunt for cherries all the time as I look at beautiful things in their store. I'd buy some new things coming out at CHA. I'm sure that I'll find more to buy than $50.00. :-)

Rona Thompson said...

Well, we would both be getting some cherries if I won, since I've only ever browsed there. But I would certainly have my eye out for any new CHA stuff! With a free $50, I would be splurging for sure!

tracy said...

Thanks for the chance to win. I love ACOT and order often.

Rebecca Y. Rice said...

Loving your album - I want to do a snap album so that is what I would (probably) spend the money on!

Kim said...

I love buying patterned paper and Bazzill cardstock from ACOT, so I would probably spend my shopping spree that way! Thanks for sharing a chance to win! And, thanks for letting us "cherries" know about your blog. (I think) I just started following you! --KimB.

Shawnlyn72 said...

I really need to buy some small letter stickers.

BSI said...

What a fun blog. I will definitely start to follow it.

I would probably buy some dies. I have enough paper to last a lifetime!

I just recently started to hunt for cherries, but I love looking in the gallery.

butterfly843 said...

Love how you used the pockets! If I won I'd buy stuff to make Valentine cards and some new CHA stuff.

jbonomo said...

Found you through Scrapbook Obsession and what a treat I found here. Good luck with building your followers again...I will definitely be a new follower..

Margareta Carlsson / Paperpilekitten said...

Wow, that is so very generous of ACOT - my favorite online store! I love their wide range of brands and products so it would be hard to choose what to get, but I guess I would get an OA album with pocket pages because you made me fall in love with them, showcasing these gorgeous pages today! :)

Gigi C. said...

I love A Cherry on Top, and I have to restrain myself from ordering all the time. Right now, I'm loving the new October Afternoon lines, so I'd probably treat myself to that! So glad to find your blog! Love your projects and ideas!

scrappinginsandhills said...

I love ACOT, that's where I do 95% of my shopping. I have a wishlist with over 1000.00 in it, so would get a bunch of stuff from that. Thanks for the chance to win.

Denise said...

Thanks for the chance to win! This Peep will be so excited to win. I think I would get the Yours Truly line from Echo park.

Cindy Andrews said...

What a great giveaway! I'd spend it on more Christmas papers. I've just about depleted my stash.

ACOT is so cool and thank you for giving us the chance to win.

Crystal Livesay said...

ConnieC said...

I'm not sure what I would buy if I won. But I know it would be a bunch of pretty things.

Tasha said...

Great project!

I would pick up some stamps and maybe dies. I tend to have hard time justifying the higher dollar items than I do things like a sheet of paper.

ButDoctorIHatePink said...

I'd never heard of this store, bur cherry hunting sounds fun! I'm very excited to be having my first grandchild in March, so will probably turn towards buying baby themed items. .

I absolutely adore your 2x2 pockets and your colors are divine.

Erica said...

I ordered some of those page protectors for my DD.

Excited to use them.

Kristie said...
