In case you missed the announcement, we’re here for another week handing out birthday goodies ’til the very last giveaway has been awarded! NOT including the complimentary “50 Business Cards from MOO.com” for everyone – we’ve made it possible for our vendors and merchants to give out almost $6500 in prizes to our readers! And believe it or not, that’s not even HALF of it!

Check back throughout the week for more giveaways, pop-quiz prizes, and Facebook flash giveaways – and you DON’T want to miss the “grand finale“!

Curious what prizes we have left? We put up this sampling on Facebook!

Right now we have an amazing prize pack combo from Full Color, Inc., The Album Cafe, and Kraft & Jute—the combined items are worth over $400.00!


Full Color Lab Bevel Mount

Full Color, Inc. Professional Photo Lab is giving away a 16×20 Bevel Wrap.

A unique take on the gallery wrap or wall canvas print, the exclusive Bevel Wrap has a 2½” bevel frame over which the canvas image is wrapped, allowing the entire image to show when viewed from the front.


Album Cafe gift card

Album Cafe 2013 offer

The Album Cafe has a $200 gift card up for grabs. Make sure you check out their limited-time offer on “The Wedding Album“! At $5, this gorgeous album is a steal!


kraft_and_jute_gift_card

Completing this prize pack is a $100 gift card from Kraft & Jute! Did you know that Kraft and Jute drew a lot of inspiration from Paperie Boutique when creating their product line? Kraft and Jute promises a “Naked” organization & products.

Naked Products – “Many of our products are made from recycled materials. Waste from product development is either reused in new product creations, shredded for packaging material or given to a local school for art class. Because we love all things simple & beautiful, our products will continue to be free from the process of over-embellishment.

Hosting Matters

Things were so chaotic late last night that I simply ran out of time on the clock to post a muchly-deserved “thank you”. So I’m here to do it first-thing this morning.

We’ve been with our host, Hosting Matters, since 2001. We switched hosts 4 times that year, and once we landed with Hosting Matters, we haven’t switched since. A celebration / event of this magnitude eats up an incredible amount of bandwidth and puts a huge load on the server. But even on a Saturday night, Annette at HM was right there making sure things went smoothly. As she’s always been with several of our other high-traffic, high-profile sites over the years.

If you need a new host, I highly recommend checking into them – they even have a special plan just for our readers here at Paperie!

Thanks Annette, Stacy, and crew!

Happy 3rd birthday to Paperie Boutique!
Visit PaperieBirthday.com for all events!

paperie 3rd birthday

It’s the last day of the big celebration here at Paperie! Posting will be light this morning as one of us has a migraine and the other one has to work the ‘real job’ for a bit… But we didn’t want to leave you empty handed through lunchtime, so we’re giving you a great prize up for grabs from emera bag!

emera green messenger

One lucky Paperie reader will win an *emera Green Messenger!

There are times when you don’t need to carry a standard sized emera bag. A short trip, say. Or if you’re just toting a smaller camera, an iPad and a little lunch. Enter the Messenger, economic in stature yet generous in stash-ability. Impeccably designed to store and protect all your spendy stuff, it has four flexible padded compartments and a deep inside zip pocket. Wear it across the body courier-style to keep your hands free for a quick cappuccino. Chic, smart and shiny. Green with orange lining.

• Water-resistant PU coated canvas with soft leather straps and trim
• Comfy shoulder pad on the strap
• Top flap whips closed and stays closed thanks to magnetic buttons
• Flap has zipper pocket roomy enough for a small notebook
• Wide back pocket – ideal for your phone
• Interior zip pocket for passport, tickets, and fancy snacks
• Modular Velcro dividers for flexible organizing
• Durable canvas lining
• Small metal feet to help protect the base


You can see more of the Green Messenger, and just what it will hold, in my Professional Photographer Magazine column (and accompanying, expanded Web Exclusives piece) from December 2011.

giveaways that ended Wednesday

So how do you win a Green Messenger of your very own?

It’s easy! You have FIVE chances!

First, comment here and tell us what your favorite *emera bag is!


For FOUR more BONUS chances to win, do the following:

1. Follow *emera on Facebook

2. Follow @emerabags on Twitter

4. Follow @paperieboutique on Twitter

Each entry requires its own separate comment here. (In simple terms: If you want FIVE chances to win, you have to do the FIVE separate things listed above, and then make five separate comments here telling us how you did them.)

Comment that you have followed *emera on Facebook and/or Twitter (or already do) – and that you have followed Paperie Boutique on Facebook and/or Twitter (or already do) – and/or list your favorite *emera bag – in separate comments here to have multiple chances to win!

HEADS UP! You cannot “like” the Paperie Facebook page or tag it from Facebook because it is a personal page set up long ago with the vanity URL. Your entry will still count as long as you post in the comments. Thanks!

Comment(s) must be posted here by 11:59 p.m. EDT on Thursday, July 26th. U.S. residents can enter up to FIVE times total. Post that you have met the individual requirements in separate comments here to have multiple chances to win! See official rules for more details.

You can enter / post up to five times total – one entry each for all of the options listed above. (PLEASE NOTE: Comments are held for moderation and may not appear immediately. Please be patient! They will show up eventually.)

You have FIVE chances to win, but only one chance PER OPTION – please do not post the same link multiple times. Duplicate links will be removed. Each entry requires its own separate comment to have multiple chances to win!

Comments on this entry will be numbered in order of posting. The winning number will be chosen by Random.org, and the winner will be contacted within 48-72 hours of the winner-announcement to claim their prize.

Now here’s a quick peek at the latest camera bag I was lucky enough to review – The MODERN Hard Case by Drop It Modern.

Drop it Modern The Modern Hard Case camera bag

What’s shown in the bag?
• Nikon D700 body with grip
• Nikon 50mm f/1.4G
• Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
• Nikon SB-800
• Apple iPad2
• Speck iPad2 FitFolio Cover
• HTC Evo Shift 4G phone
• Abie Designs camera strap
• wallet WhiBal card
• Compact Flash Cards

Photos just do not do this camera case justice – it’s brilliantly vintage, yet perfectly modern all in one. I was extremely impressed with the sturdy construction.

I don’t want to send it back. If I suddenly quit posting to this blog and Facebook, you’ll know the case and I ran away to Jamaica and lived happily ever after!

button spring forward

It’s no big secret my family has had a rough couple of years, but we were all left unprepared and reeling from the events that took place two weeks ago. My little sister Jennifer, age 30, passed away on February 27th. She was married and they have a 14-month old son.

Jenn

Hopefully that helps explain why the site has been left without updates and and e-mails have gone unreturned. I tried to update the Paperie Facebook page as I was able, but there’s just only so much you can do from an iPad on I-40 travelling to and from a funeral…

Slowly but surely I’m catching up with my life again and we have a few contest winners to announce!

First up are the winners of the three packaging contests here on Paperie: The “cameo / timeless” boutique packaging winner is Dawn Corwin. The “three strikes / spring training” custom packaging winner is Lynette Weber. And the “lipstick / tarte” boudoir packaging winner is WhirlieGirl Photography!

And the winner of “the savvy set” giveaway by Panache Collective over at The Savvy Photographer was…Sugar Bug Photography!

Thanks to everyone who entered, congrats to our winners, and thanks again to The Savvy Photographer for hosting one of these great giveaways!

For all our winners – you should hear from Robyn in the next 24-48 hours. Your packaging will need to be assembled and should ship within 3-4 business days of contact. Thanks for your patience!
