giveaway : swingline long reach stapler from officezilla

A couple of weeks ago I received a surprise email from Susan Mintmire, former owner and author of the PaperCrafter's Corner blog. Susan and I met briefly at CHA a year or so ago and also worked together when I was on Heidi Swapp's team, and in her email she was excitedly telling me about her new job as Director of Marketing at an online office supply retailer, OfficeZilla.

Now, you guys know how much I love to use office supplies in my scrapbooking, and Susan wanted to arrange a giveaway for my readers! After talking back and forth a bit, we decided to go with something that's just a bit different from your normal scrapbooking tool:

OfficeZilla is going to send one of the commenters on this blog post a brand new Swingline Long Reach Stapler, and I'm pretty excited about this as it's one of the nice models with an adjustable measurement guide, just perfect for stapling together booklets and mini albums. And my favorite use for it? Stapling together paper layers on my layouts! I first spotted this technique in the video below by Lilith Eeckels- if you jump to the 2:50 mark you'll see the magic of having one of these babies on your scrapping desk!

No more stacking up layers, then unstacking them and trying to remember where they were while adhering them in place. Just staple through the whole thing a few times and be done with it!

So, here are all the details- to enter, simply leave a comment on this post by midnight CST on Sunday, March 31, and please make sure that you enter an email address somewhere on the comment form. One comment per person, please! I'll contact the winner on Monday morning and get you all set up to have your new stapler sent to you. Since OfficeZilla only ships to the continental US, entries need to be limited to the 48 contiguous United States (my sincere apologies to Alaska, Hawaii, and all my lovely international readers).

OfficeZilla also has a massive stock of photo papers, shipping tags, pens, and lots of other goodies that are just perfect for scrapbooking. They've even got a whole section dedicated to crafting- definitely my kind of office supply store! They also offer free shipping on purchases of $45 or more and have been known to send out some pretty sweet coupons in their weekly email newsletter.

Good luck to all who enter! I'll be back tomorrow with our second giveaway post of the week!
