Time for a Giveaway!
Well it's been a very exciting couple of days at Cartolina. Lots of great response to our new 100% recycled notebooks over at poppytalk and design*sponge. Thanks to Grace and Jan for starting the notebook rush! These little beauties are simple, pocket sized(4" by 6") books with blank pages and pretty covers. They sell as singles, with the bands around them, for $4 each or $12 for a mixed bundle of 3. We are releasing these at the New York International Gift Fair in 2 weeks from now. The notebooks are not going to be widely available until the end of the month so we thought it would be fun to end a great week by having a giveaway :-)



So all you have to do is check out the nine notebooks above and tell me your top 3 favourite designs - list them in order of preference. This will be a great way for us to anticipate the best sellers and plan our next printing schedule! Let's leave it open until Wednesday and then we'll pick a couple of random winners, and perhaps a couple of runners up depending how many entries we get. Top winners will get a full set of our little notebooks :-)

3,4 & 9 are my favorites, although they are all gorgeous.

Found my way here via a note from Michelle (Cicada Studio). She thought I'd like these notebooks... she was right!

Maybe late but f.y.i. I LOVE 5,7 & 9 mainly because they're blue which moves me. Also 3 with the gorgeous flowers are great.

Good luck at the show! These will definitely be a hit and price point is perfect.
Thanks,
Kathy
