Welcome to Freebie Friday! Did you know that today is Worship of the Tools Day? I’m sure a macho carpenter or mechanic came up with this unusual holiday, but it totally works for paper crafters too! Wouldn’t you agree?
According to the Paper Crafts 2011 Reader Survey, our Tips, Tools & Techniques column is your favorite column in the whole magazine (and has been for many years now)! Furthermore, a whopping 87% of you own a personal die-cutting machine. And if that wasn’t impressive enough, 46% of you own both a electronic AND a manual die-cutting machine. Cool, huh?
You know who else loves her tools? Go-to Gal Teri Anderson. She even has her own Tooling Around with Teri blog series right here on Paper Crafts Connection. If you’ve missed any of her previous tool-focused posts, today is the perfect opportunity to read up on them. Stay tuned for our second post of the day…we’ll have all those links!
In the meantime, let’s give away a cool tool! Creative Editor Susan R. Opel is known to “puffy heart” many things. One is the color orange. Another is bling (you can imagine how she feels about orange bling!). What’s her trick for adhering all those tiny rhinestones to her cards? The i-rock by Imaginisce.
Check out her Sassy Birthday Wishes Card:
Just the perfect amount of bling to make a statement. Leave a comment telling me your “go-to” tool and I’ll pick three random winners to take home Imaginisce’s i-rock, their Flower Stencil Kit (100 gems, 8 flowers, 1 stencil) and their Glam Rocks (300 metal accents). All comments must be received by midnight (MDT) on Sunday, March 13. FYI: Daylight Savings Time begins this Sunday, so make sure to leave your comment before we “spring forward”!
P.S. It’s time to announce the winner of Teri’s Addicted to Twine post!
