New Giveaway! Laurel Denise 2015 Planner

I rounded up some of my favorite planners a couple of weeks ago – and today I’m super excited to be giving away one of the fabulous 2015 planners from Laurel Denise!


This gorgeous planner has been one of my favorites for the last few years: it’s well-designed without being overwhelming, and with plenty of space to keep track of everything from appointments to to-do’s to ideas and inspiration.



Laurel designed her planner to let you view both monthly and weekly pages at the same time – so you can plan each weekly schedule while keeping track of what’s ahead! Just turn a new page for each new week in the month, without ever losing sight of the full-month view. Oh, and there’s also room for goal planning in 2015 and into 2016!



This year’s planner features a beautiful matte gray cover with spiral bound pages along with inside folders on front and back cover, individually tabbed months, lined note-taking pages, graph paper note-taking pages, and more!


To enter, leave a comment below telling us one of your goals for 2015! You’ll have until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, January 23 to enter the giveaway. One winner will be selected randomly. Bonne chance!

*Sorry, limited to U.S. readers only. Limit one entry per person. Please do not leave your email or web address in the body of the comment, only in the allotted boxes. $35 approximate total retail value. Winner will be contacted via email after comments close.

p.s. Laurel is also offering Oh So Beautiful Paper readers a free notecard set with planner purchase! Just mention “oh so beautiful paper” at checkout! Thanks Laurel!

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway with Belle + Union!


As we enter the season of giving, I’m super excited to team up with Meg from Belle & Union for a special twelve days of Christmas giveaway! Starting today, Meg will run special deals on a different product each day, which she’ll announce on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook – and at the end of the twelve days one lucky OSBP reader will win a package featuring one of each item! I don’t want to spoil Meg’s surprises – so you’ll have to follow along to see each item as it’s revealed – but the final giveaway promises to be a really good one!


A little background from Meg: As a little girl, my mom wrote a version of the 12 Days of Christmas song for my Dad. It was from the perspective of my sister and myself, promises that we would be making as his children to make his Christmas (and his year) that much better. Things like “(starting at number 5) one bark only, no hands on the walls, good grades at school, two clean rooms, and no running up and down the stairs.” (Sing it to the tune, it’ll get stuck in your head for days, or in my case, over fifteen years running.) I thought it would be fun to piggyback on my mom’s idea and share with my friends and followers a ”Belle & Union 12 Days of Christmas.For the next 12 days, there will be a different deal every day, with each item being available with the ones from the days before it, culminating on the 12th day with the best gift of all!


To enter, just comment below with your favorite thing about the holidays! You can also share on 1) Instagram, 2) Facebook, 3) Pinterest, or 4) Twitter with the hashtag #BU12days for additional entries! Leave a comment below with links to your Instagram/Twitter/Facebook/Pinterest posts, and don’t forget to tag us – @BelleAndUnionCo and @beautifulpaper – in your posts! Enter and share as many times as you like during the 12 days. We’ll choose a winner at random on December 13th at noon CST. Happy holidays, friends!

Follow along with Meg @BelleAndUnionCo on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook – and Meg will announce each day’s treat at 9am CST, starting today!
