Giveaway: Win Some Gauche Alchemy!

Happy Saturday! Amy here to announce a Gauche Alchemy giveaway!

Gauche Alchemy Giveaway!

Unlike the poor dude pictured here, our contests are designed to be humiliation free. No risk participation! Go for it!

So, here’s the idea. Spread the word about Gauche Alchemy and get a chance to win a delish goody bag on us. It will have a little of this and a dash of that – guaranteed some of our favorite finds.

From now through Valentines Day, any Tweet that includes the hashtag #GaucheAlchemy and a link to our blog (http://GaucheAlchemy.com) will be entered to win. Simple right?

Same goes for Facebook – any post that meets these two criteria will be entered to win (make sure to mark that post public so we can see it).

You can also enter on Pinterest by pinning your favorite product from our shop (found at http://GaucheAlchemy.artfire.com) or pinning a project that features our products (yours or anyone else’s, including our designers), of course including #GaucheAlchemy and our blog link in the description of the photo.

How to Make Your Own Wedding Bouquet

Hi everyone!

Cheryl Whittaker created this wonderful tutorial just for Gauche Alchemy showing how she made her own wedding bouquet!  If it moved a little too fast for you on the origami part – go back and re-watch it a couple of times… the technique is simple and the effects are SO worth it!  Congratulations to Cheryl on her nuptials!  I wonder if she used our Wedding Night mixed media kit for her garter?
