You guys are going to be blown away by the prize packs for the fifth and final day of the Xyron 35k Giveaway! Four people are going to win prize packs worth OVER $500 EACH!!!!! So hold on to your hats and get to know these great partners - then check out a little Friday surprise from me at the end!
Even if you think you aren't familiar with EK Success, trust me...you are. :) They have some of the best known product lines in crafting - including Jolee's, K & Co, and Martha Stewart Crafts. They even have their own online community at SpottedCanary.com where people can share project ideas, post questions to the forum, and even look for on-line and in-store classes! Their craft resources library is vast and full of great tips - I could spend hours in here! Ask at a store near you for new EK Success tools coming soon!
If you have not yet discovered Craftsy - run over to their website right now and check it out! They cover a HUGE array of crafts (which I love because it gets me thinking outside the box) and are overflowing with ways to help you get creative. From online classes to free downloadables to project ideas and more - get yourself a cup of coffee and prepare to get lost in the fabulousness for a while. Do you knit or crochet? They are also hosting a contest on their blog that is just for you!
Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine has been with us all week, so I hope by now you've taken advantage of their FREE magazine subscriptions (you just pay S&H)! I could literally go on all day about what beautiful, high quality issues they put out - with great project ideas, gorgeous images, and lots of great info. Also - don't forget about the giveaway they are having on their blog this week too!
Colorbök is back today as well, and I just found some FREE downloadable box patterns on their website! I am always finding something new over there! They are also having a giveaway on their blog to help Xyron celebrate...deadline is tonight so head on over there to enter!
Every collection BoBunny comes out with brings a world of possibilities for creating gorgeous projects, and they give us plenty of inspiration! Their blog is a great resource for everything from cards to layouts to mini albums, and they even have FREE online classes with video instruction - you just purchase the supplies on your own! What a cool idea!
The Twinery has turned baker's twine in to an art form - literally! You can buy directly from their site (the sampler packs just make me happy) and they have a blog filled with fun project ideas and a few free downloadables for you as well. Everything they create is so stinkin' cute!
Heidi Swapp is my hair twin and an amazingly creative woman who time after time creates collections that I just love. Heidi has some wonderful tutorials both on her website and on My Craft Channel, and her blog is like eye candy. GORGEOUS projects everywhere!
If you are a kit kind of girl (or guy)...then you MUST get to know Quick Quotes. They make a variety of products but their high quality kits (especially the canvas ones) are my absolute favorite. They also put on an AMAZING event several times a year called Private Reserve that is like the best girls scrapbooking weekend (but you actually get stuff done - ha!)...maybe something to put on the Christmas wish list!
If you watch me on HSN you are probably already familiar with 3 Birds Design(and my fabulous friend Donna Stork). I am totally in love with their collections - they are such high quality and the prices are amazing! If you aren't familiar with them then head on over to their blog to check out their products and get great project ideas to boot!
Rounding out our Friday giveaway is one of my all time favorite stamp companies -Technique Tuesday. I have been a fan for years, and once they started bringing in talented designers like Ali Edwards (and most recently, Teri Anderson), I was hooked! The projects you can create with their products have taken my stamping to a whole new level, and both their website and their blog are FULL of inspiration. They've even got some video tutorials to help new stampers get started! Wanna see what our four lucky winners will be receiving from Technique Tuesday? Check out the sneak peek of some of the prizes right here on their blog!
WHEW! Is that enough for you? No? Well good...because guess what? I'm doing a giveaway right here on the blog too!!!!!!!! WOOHOO!!!!! One lucky winner is going to receive a sampling of product from ALL of our giveaway partners - over $200 worth of crafty goodness!
