Giveaway!

Hi everybody!

I finally decided to start a blog!  I plan on showcasing my whole learning process through learning different techniques for hybrid scrapbooking and cardmaking.  Not all of my stuff will be hybrid, I will have plenty of traditional methods as well.  For those of you that don't know very much about me, I am currently a Cricut user, most of my creations utilize Make the Cut!  Love that software!  I am also in the process of learning Photoshop Elements 8 and everything that I can do with it.  Why PSE8?  One answer....I got a copy for work so well it was free to me!  I am always looking for a bargain :)  I don't plan on doing anything that is 100% digital because I personally think that something is missing with all digi pages.  There is no dimension and you lose that homemade feel.  I think I will mostly use digital paper and digital stamps, but then again we will just have to see what I come up with.

On another note, I have pre-ordered an eCraft Personal Cutter made by Craftwell.  Kim Bush over at Cutters Creek has been a doll to deal with and I have found out that my eCraft will come either early next week or mid to late the following week as she will be at CHA so if the cutters get to her too late they would not be available to ship until she returns.  Here's hoping she gets them soon.  I plan on doing a video when I get the eCraft on my very first cuts with the machine.  I am making a list of various different things that I want to cut.  Stay tuned and get a peek at what this cutter can do, and I will also give you my honest and true first opinion of the machine.  I am not affiliated with Craftwell or Cutters Creek or anyone else for that matter so I will tell you EXACTLY what I think!

Now on to the fun stuff....I HAVE A GIVEAWAY!!!! 

I am looking to send all of the items shown in the picture above (as well as maybe a few surprises!) to one of my first 100 followers!  So please sign up to be a follower and leave me a comment on this post.  Once I reach 100 followers, I will use that random number picker thing to choose a winner.  You MUST leave a comment here and be a follower to be eligible.  Spread the word and join me for this adventure!

mnothvogel said...

Hi Denise,

I'm so happy to have found your blog, I'm hopeful it will be helpful to me. I've had my eCraft for 2 months and have not had even 1 successful cut. I asked my computer guru hubby to go through the manual and practice with the machine last weekend. He too had little luck. I am so frustrated with my eCraft I'm nearly ready to throw it out a window. I was under the impression that it was pretty much self adjusting when I first learned about it. Apparently, that isn't the case.

Anyway, I want to thank you for you and your blog. My fingers are crossed that it will help.

Michelle in Southern California!

Topcat said...

Else49 said...

Hello Denise. I just bought an Ecraft machine myself and so far I am happy but I must say I am having some difficulties as well. I use a notebook and Windows 7. I am a member of the Yahoogroup and I am learning lots there as well.

Celeste said...

I just purchased a ECraft cutter today... I can't wait to get it next week... I am hoping to love it... I just found your blog through Cutters Creek... I am now a follower and can't wait to learn about the Ecraft and see your wonderful projects...
