PaperRamma: Giveaway

In July, I will be attending BlogHer ’09 in Chicago along side 1200 wonderful bloggers!  I am so excited to be able to attend the event and hope to learn how to take my blog to the next level.  But, I would not be able to attend without the generous support of some incredible companies, such as PaperRamma, who are sponsoring my trip.


I found PaperRamma by searching Etsy for business cards and totally fell in love with her designs and unique carrying case!  Amanda creates Mommy Contact Cards in fun shapes that really stand out from the standard business card.  Never thought about carrying a contact card?  Amanda tells you why you should….

Contact Cards…

…are better than a scrap piece of paper when you meet a new mom or friend and want to exchange info.
…come in handy when you drop off your child at a playdate or want to give your contact info.
…are always right there when you bump into an old friend.
…make great gifts for new mommies, brides to be or friends.
…are perfect when you want to set up a playdate or coffee date.
…make a chic first impression as business or blog cards.
…are always right there when you need them in their own trendy clip carrying case.”

paperramma2 paperramma3 Her adorable cards come in sets of 24 and are double sided, premium quality printed.  Your contact information appears on one side while a coordinating pattern is shown on the reverse….no dull, boring white here!  Cards can be placed into the carrying case and easily clipped to a purse, diaper bag or stroller for easy access.

I am so honored to be carrying my very own custom contact cards from PaperRamma!  Amanda created incredible cards for The Not-So-Blog to be handed out at BlogHer!  Want one?  Come find me!!  I’ll be happily passing them out to promote her business (and mine!).

Here’s a sneak peek!


Amanda’s Mommy Contact Cards have become so popular that she decided to create a whole new store just for them!  Make sure you check out Social Circle for the latest designs in Contact Cards!

  20. Wow! I love these! They are very unique – I’ve seen contact cards before but never such a great idea for a carrying case. How fun?!

    Love these! Do you kinda get the feeling I love these? LOL.

    Okay, the question. Down to serious business….winning 🙂

    Oops, forgot the question, brb. Did I mention that I love these? If I’m lucky enough to win, mine would be similar to the one above with the toile/damask-y type black and white, but instead of pink, I think I would want mmmmmm, maybe red. Yeah, red, black and white- clean, chic, strong. Sounds good.

    Thanks for introducing me to this etsy shop!
