Paint A Pillow Giveaway!

I was contacted by the fine people at "Paint-A-Pillow" inquiring if I would like to try Paint-a-Pillow AND do a giveaway for my readers......The answer was a resounding YES and YES!!  Paint-A-Pillow is a sister company of Cutting Edge Stencils


I was in need of new pillows so the timing was perfect!  I went to their site where I was able to choose from over 150 stencils and choose paint colors 


I used these paint colors to play mad scientist and got the colors I wanted with the help of their handy color mixing chart


When the box arrived I was more than impressed with the packaging 


The pillow case was already on the cardboard frame with the stencil attached over it by the gold clips........All centered and ready to go....This is a no fail project! 


I was able to use either a stencil brush or a roller

They turned out perfect!  The key was the pillow case frame and the ability to center the stencil perfectly with the gold clips

Here's the beauty of Paint-A-Pillow......Now that I have the frame, stencils, and tools, I can order just the pillow covers for $9.95 and order additional stencils or paint ala cart


This allows me to custom design my pillows...I pick the pattern and colors I want......No shopping around for the perfect pillow....I create it!


So here's the deal.....Paint-A-Pillow is giving away to one lucky reader a free Paint-A-Pillow kit, which includes everything needed to create one fabulous pillow


Just leave a comment and make sure there is some way I can contact you.  I am unable to contact some Google + readers. 
Some I can, and some I can't I have no idea why?  It always makes me feel bad when you leave kind comments and I can't get back to you.
This Giveaway is Now closed
I will draw a winner by Random Number on November 21, 2014
US residents only

Good Luck!
  
Happy Creating
Carol

I was compensated with product for this post, but the opinions are all mine

I've been an avid stenciler since the early '90s. The transforming power of a tiny bit of paint and a stencil is AWESOME! I would sure love to win THIS, Carol.

And your pillows turned out DREAMY!

Hugs and happy week,
Kelley~

Congratulations on being selected by "Paint-A-Pillow". Your pillows turned out gorgeous. This really does look like a no fail way to stencil fabric. Creative Pillow Bliss...

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

This looks like such a fun project! You did a wonderful job with yours! I'd love to win!

The Sterling Cherub said...

Wow! Your pillows turned out beautifully! I cannot decide which one I like better. You are incredibly talented and creative so I would expect you to do this project and make it look perfect, but the way they package their product DOES make it look like the average person (like me!) could do a good job with this as well.

I've heard of Cutting Edge Stencils and been to their site before, off to check out their pillow stencils now!

Good luck to everyone who enters this drawing!

Best,

Kimberly

What lovely fresh-looking pillows.Pillows are a great way to add some sparkle to a room needing a "lift".
I've never tried doing stencilling on fabric, but it looks good and do-able!
Thanks for sharing.

Oh my gosh!! This actually looks so easy!! For years I've avoided stencils on cloth for fear of messing up what I'm working on. But this looks amazing!!! Thank you for your easy to follow tutorial and chance to win!

Sharon Blindert said...

I am very impressed, the care a comapny takes in packaging and how it arrives, is a big plus for me when trying a new product. I have stenciled for years BUT never on fabric, I always have a fear of the paint turning out rough, not soft and supple. Your pillows look fantastic and definitely makes me want to take the plunge. Thank you for the great tutorial & information, please toss my hat into the ring, too!!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Carol, Love the pillows you created with the Paint a Pillow project. Congrats on being asked to share it. I know how fun this is having stenciled pillows myself but this system looks very interesting.
I would love the design you used too. Great for year round decorating.

I am a no reply blogger now but I know you have my address.
Still had blog glitches and had to try changing some settings which helped to receive comments in my inbox again instead of the dashboard and spam. I was missing lots of visitors comments not seeing them etc. plus not getting the follow by email posts delivered. Finally received yours again.
Hope this works now!!

Thanks for sharing.
Hugs

Jan Baker said...

This is a wonderful idea and your pillow came out great. I wonder if they carry Christmas patterns,

Patricia said...

Carol, Paint-A-Pillow seems a winner to me. I, for one, would love to give it a go. What about Paint-Your-Fabric as another idea? I'd love that for drapery and especially to create a statement wall in my newly re-designed bedroom closet.

Ann said...

Your pillows look great - love the birds. Put me in: azantiques@gmail.com.

Diana Wise said...

Hi Carol,
This is the first time I've heard about this product and it looks like it would be so much fun! I love the ones that you created and if they come packaged like that then I'm in! I'm going to their site right now!

hugs

Connie said...

Hello Carol, what a wonderful give-away. This is a really cool idea, what ingenious folks to package these kits. Like you said, you can create the perfect pillow and you never find the perfect pillow when you go out shopping for them. I've settled for second best many times. I feel honored to be included in your drawing and hope that I win. Of coarse that's what all of us are wishing. I'm going to have to visit their site.
Here's wishing you a happy week.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)
P.S. Your pillows turned out beautiful and you really pick pretty designs and colors. You have a designers eye, everything you do is gorgeous:)

Melodee said...

how cute and simple this is!! already set to go like that? Love it!!! It's been years since I've stenciled, but this looks like such a fun project!!

Donna said...

What a fun and creative kit! You picked out two really good designs. I'm crossing my finger for luck in you giveaway! Thank you.

Chris said...

I love the stencils you chose! This would be awesome, I would love to paint my own pillows, I love that it comes with a way to center the pillows so its easy to use over and over! WIN

Jo said...

I need more decorative pillows and these are really cute. Husband probably will not care for another project in the house. Oh, well. Jo @ Let's Face the Music

Teresa said...

WOW!
Yes, the items are absolutely amazing. But the package? Way too amazing.
These things separate ordinary from extraordinary but I believe this goes two steps up on that ladder :)
I won't enter the give away because it would be unfair the bothersome and expenses of sending it overseas when so many close by would have here a Dream Christmas Gift to enjoy and cherish.
Thank you for sharing.
Teresa
