People the world over recognize the iconic orange handled scissors from Fiskars, but their brand is so much more! Their high quality tools make them a must-have for crafters of all kinds, but they are also an INCREDIBLE resource for project tutorials as well! Check out their gallery for every possible kind of project idea (yes - the photo above is a sunflower made out of kids handprints!! I mean come on!!) and a tutorial to go with each. They also share a whole bunch of articles with even more inspiration - all in one spot! Who knew?
Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine is back again today - woohoo!! If you didn't catch my post about them on Tuesday I have one word for you. FREE!!!!!!!! They offer FREE magazine subscriptions (you just pay S&H) and a FREE online version as well - you will thank me once you get your hands on these gorgeous issues that you will treasure and use as inspiration for years. Also be sure to check out their blog where they happen to be having a cool giveaway of their own this week!
From the people who work there to the names of their collections to the bright, clean colors of their papers to the cool and clever embellishments that coordinate with it all, Jillibean Soup is FUN! Their blog is chock full of beautiful project ideas (and a handy list of where you can purchase their products) and oh by the way...they are doing their own giveaway today on their FB page to help Xyron celebrate! Head on over and get entered to win $100 in Jillibean product!
Carta Bella Paper is a new line from Echo Park that made a HUGE splash with their first few collections. If you have not seen them in person then their blog is the next best thing! I love how they use videos to help us get to know the company and their products, and the project ideas they share there are so dang cute it makes me want to start creating!
Pink Paislee makes me SO happy! Their paper collections are some of my absolute faves, and I love how much they do to help their fans get creative. From free project sheets on their website to gorgeous project ideas, video demos and free downloadables on their blog, Pink Paislee wants you to love their products and much as they do, and it shows!
Hydrangea Hippo is the crafty place where my fabulous friend Jennifer Priest shares her kits, handmade goodies and specialty items from her treasure chest of embellies! Looking for something unique to use on your crafting projects? Want a kit that has great instructions and looks amazing when done? Hydrangea Hippo is the place. Speaking of kits - they are giving one away on their blog this week too!
One of the things I have always loved about Colorbök is that they have their hand in almost every facet of crafting, from papercrafts to sewing to jewelry making and more, which helps crafters expand their horizons and try something new. As you know I am a HUGE proponent of getting kids excited about crafting, and Colorbök not only has some fun products created just for the kiddos, but is starting a line for teens as well! I think that is so cool! Head on over to their blog for some awesome freebies, including wallpaper for your phone!
Finally, Die Cuts With a View (or DCWV as it is best known) and their paper stacks are a staple of almost every paper crafter. If you are like me and have some "leftovers" from those stacks lying around, head immediately over to their website where they have all of their project ideas categorized by stack! Thank you DCWV! I also found this super cool "Ultimate Stack List" (and I LOVE LOVE LOVE lists...so this made me a little giddy) on their blog along with some cool project ideas!
