    I’d love to see the Slice reviewed! I’m really excited about it.

  2. Deanne Burton October 28, 2008 at 1:55 pm #

    Cool giveaway!!!

    I’d like to see something done on the different typs of “powders” you can use on your cards or layouts. (eg embossing,glitter,etc.)

  3. Linda E October 28, 2008 at 2:04 pm #

    I can’t wait to read a review on the Slice.

  4. Jingle October 28, 2008 at 2:06 pm #

    I would like to see a fun review comparing scrapping snack foods! Which ones leave unsightly residue, which ones are too greasy, which ones crumble too much, and which ones are just perfect?! That would just be fun!

  5. Katie October 28, 2008 at 2:09 pm #

    I’d like to know more about the slice!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Dawn October 28, 2008 at 2:16 pm #

    What a cool idea!
    I would like to see a review on UTEE. I’ve seen a few projects using this stuff however, I have no idea what it is, or how you use it.

  7. Lisa October 28, 2008 at 2:19 pm #


  8. Tammy October 28, 2008 at 2:20 pm #

    I would like to see a review of the new Wishblade Create and Cut Software Plus.

  9. Bree October 28, 2008 at 2:26 pm #

    oo how about a review on scrap sites or kits or blogs… that sounds like fun..

  10. Stampin_Melissa October 28, 2008 at 2:44 pm #

    Slice? What’s a Slice? I guess you can add that to the list.

    How about Shimmerz? Or Tim Holtz scissors?

  11. TammyB October 28, 2008 at 2:56 pm #

    I’d have to add my vote for the Slice Design Cutter Machine. But I would also like to see something on the new Tim Holtz masks. Thanks for the chance to win one of the Bo Bunny craft knives!

  12. ConnieC October 28, 2008 at 3:00 pm #

    I’d like to see you review some of the exotic paints and inks out there. The ones made for art purposes that are slowly making their way to scrapbooking and card making.

  13. Cynthia October 28, 2008 at 3:03 pm #

    this is not specific, but I vote for any new scrapbooking tools or products. that’s why I love this blog– I can get the view of someone who’s actually tried the stuff that hasn’t hit my area yet. thanks to all for the great blog!

  14. *reyanna klein* October 28, 2008 at 3:16 pm #

    I’d love a review on the new Slice! I’m so interested on how it compares with the other cutting systems out there! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh, now that I look… lots of people suggested this. LOL.

    How about the Camelbak Better Bottle? I know it’s not a crafting item, per se, but it’s the perfect water bottle for crafters because it doesn’t spill when tipped over, and you don’t need to worry about a lid! ๐Ÿ˜€

  15. Estivalia October 28, 2008 at 3:20 pm #

    I’d love to see something about carving our own stamps ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Irene Lenihan October 28, 2008 at 3:21 pm #

    I’d love to see something about stickles. What a great giveaway.

  17. Allie October 28, 2008 at 3:23 pm #

    How about a review/introduction of TenSeconds Studio metal sheets and embossing tools?

  18. Carolina October 28, 2008 at 3:25 pm #

    Iยดd like a review of the new, bigger (better?) Bind it all!

  19. Denise ~ Paper Ponderings October 28, 2008 at 3:28 pm #

    I’d like to see a review on the bendable ruler.

  20. Regina Cornelius October 28, 2008 at 3:29 pm #

    any tool review would be great!!!

  21. krista October 28, 2008 at 3:45 pm #

    I would love one of these ๐Ÿ™‚
    I would love to see a review on the Slice, or the new Bind It All!

  22. GabrielaD October 28, 2008 at 3:52 pm #

    great giveaway!!!

    I would love to see the Cricut reviewed, I have one but I find lots of people that are really interested in learning more about it.

  23. Mechelle October 28, 2008 at 3:53 pm #

    I would also love to see a review on the Slice~

    Thank you~

  24. Erin-Joi October 28, 2008 at 4:05 pm #

    While I love the tool reviews, I really love the reviews with examples of what to do with them. There are so many uses that people do not think about. For instance, I received a sizzix bigkick from my husband because he wanted to use it to make something out of 6mm foam. Once his project was done, the bigkick was mine. The time savings and Micheal’s coupon made the purchase of the bigkick very worthwhile for his project.

  25. Lesa October 28, 2008 at 4:23 pm #

    Tim HOltz grungeboard…I bought some, no idea what cool stuff to do to it now! Hopefully you haven’t already done it and I just missed it! Great giveaway! Thanks!

  26. Stacy October 28, 2008 at 4:30 pm #

    Another vote for the Slice!

  27. Tona October 28, 2008 at 4:34 pm #

    I would like to see you review Fiskars Push & Print Stamp Factory and/or Fiskars Rock, Paper, Trimmer.

  28. Katie October 28, 2008 at 4:42 pm #

    I’d love to see a Fiskars Push ‘n Print Stamp Factory review! ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Chelle October 28, 2008 at 4:47 pm #

    Stickles/other glitter or embossing powders would be great.

  30. Diane O. October 28, 2008 at 4:49 pm #

    Anything new by Tim Holtz. Also the Claudine Hellmuth line from Ranger.

  31. Leah October 28, 2008 at 4:54 pm #

    I am intrugued by the Slice by Making Memories..I think it just came out this month

  32. Hayley G October 28, 2008 at 4:55 pm #

    I’d like to see a real review of the slice rather than a promotional review, which it seems is all I have seen. I went to a MM “Class” which was actually just a sales pitch for it, and I was a bit miffed, so my view might be biased because of it. I have a cricut, so I can’t see why I would switch or even add it. Same thing, I have an original sizzix, and why I would bother with a bigshot.

    Mind you “Jingle” has a great idea about ideal snack foods!! I vote for peanut butter M&M’s!!!

  33. Michelle Adams October 28, 2008 at 5:25 pm #

    I would absolutely LOVE seeing a review/tutorial on the Ranger UTEE melting pot and powders. I own both but they are all still sealed in the packages as I am not sure how to use any of it. I would also love to see you critique Pearl Ex. I own a bunch of it, too, but am not too sure what I can do with it. Thanks so much for the chance to win the craft knife!

  34. reflections:0) October 28, 2008 at 5:36 pm #

    Tom Holtz New products any and all of them…


  35. Mary C October 28, 2008 at 5:57 pm #

    Any new scrapbooking or stamping tools, I am curious about this slice that everyone is talking about.

  36. About Me. October 28, 2008 at 6:25 pm #

    I would like to see the magnetic cutting system. I think it is by Basic Grey.
    The slice would be nice but it is so out of my range financially that I prefer to see things reviewed that are more affordable.

  37. Froggy October 28, 2008 at 6:35 pm #

    I would love to see the pink BIA see if it is really worth the upgrade or not.

  38. Dolce Deb's Designs October 28, 2008 at 6:48 pm #

    Put me down for the slice as well it does so intrigue me. Thanks for the chance to win. I love your blog.

    Debbie/Phx AZ

  39. Bel October 28, 2008 at 6:54 pm #

    I’d love to see a review done on the Big Kick (and if it really can use any and all other dies by other companies out there like I’ve heard some claims it can!), especially in the new format it’s come out with recently!

    I’d also love to see a review on the QuicKutz Love electric/motorized die-cut machine when it comes out!

    Thanks for the opportunity! ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. ~Q~ October 28, 2008 at 7:02 pm #

    Thanks for the chance to comment and possibly win. I’d love to see reviews on using unconventional items for scrapping/stamping (coffee filters, aluminum flashing, bottlecaps, etc).

  41. StampinCathy October 28, 2008 at 7:10 pm #

    I would love to see Tim Holtz new distress stickles and his new mask templates. Thanks so much for a chance.

  42. vickiparker October 28, 2008 at 7:29 pm #

    I would like to see Glimmer Mist reviewed. Its become really big over here and yet is something I thought I would never use.

  43. kama October 28, 2008 at 7:32 pm #

    I’d love to see a comparison between different things, eg:

    1. coloring techniques (for instance tombows, promarkers, twinkling h2o’s, aquarelles, prisma etc. What paper is needed, results you will get, costs, pros-cons etc.)

    2. Glues – I know some of us are still having problems when it comes to how to glue metalparts, vellum, shrinkplastic etc. Would be great to see what you think.


  44. kimberlee October 28, 2008 at 7:34 pm #

    Ohhh I wanna see the Slice or the new Around the Block brad maker. Either looks too cool!!

  45. Donna October 28, 2008 at 7:45 pm #

    I want to know if the new Bind-It-All is really any better than the old one?

  46. Angie DiMeglio October 28, 2008 at 7:46 pm #

    I’d like to see a review on the Spellbinders new Wizard.

  47. Anonymous October 28, 2008 at 7:46 pm #

    There is a product that I have had in my collection for a few months that I would like to see a review on – The Envelope Pro by Crafter’s Companion…..a handy gadget for making different sized envelopes.

  49. Elaine October 28, 2008 at 8:02 pm #

    tell about the slice

  50. Jodi October 28, 2008 at 8:03 pm #

    I’d have to say the Slice or the Bind it All. ๐Ÿ™‚

  51. GothamGal October 28, 2008 at 8:21 pm #

    I’m thinking the slice… Because it’s something I might consider buying, but the cost is such that I am really thinking about it.

  52. Lorie October 28, 2008 at 8:21 pm #

    Oooo…neat give away! How about different ways to use Tim Holtz distressing ink. I would love to see more ways to use it!

  53. Missy October 28, 2008 at 8:22 pm #

    Sweet!! I love giveaways!
    I’d like to see a review on the Cricut.

  54. Debs October 28, 2008 at 8:28 pm #

    I would like to see how glitter can be used classily on layouts/books…so far, unless its already part of a design I haven’t been very successful with it yet love the whole happy, glitzy, shimmer effects of it!

  55. Christine October 28, 2008 at 8:32 pm #

    I would like to see a review on the Quickutz Revolution Love. I have learned alot from this site. It is very informative.

  56. Wendy October 28, 2008 at 8:34 pm #

    I saw a new cutting mat from We R Memory Keepers that includes a cutting ruler and circular cutting tool…all used on the same mat. With all the various mats & cutters out there, I would like a review of this new approach.

  57. Mary O.K. October 28, 2008 at 8:40 pm #

    Please-please-please review Shimmerz! I’m not even sure if they’re a paint or what, but I have seen some lovely things made with their lovely colors. Before I invest in one more thing that I’ll need more than one of– please help either save or convert me!
    Mary O.K.

  58. Karen Merc October 28, 2008 at 8:54 pm #

    I would love to see a review on The Slice.

  59. tiffany n. October 28, 2008 at 8:55 pm #

    ranger Adirondack Alcohol Inks. I would love to see what you can do with these. Hopefully it wasn’t already done and I missed it.

  60. Lyn S October 28, 2008 at 9:10 pm #

    I like painty, shimmery products, so a review on Lumiere paints, Pearl-Ex, shimmerz, Glimmer mists or similar products would be great. I’d also like to know some uses for Tyvek.

  61. Heather October 28, 2008 at 9:11 pm #

    another vote for the slice!

  62. Cassie October 28, 2008 at 9:13 pm #

    I would like to see a review on Unity Stamps and the unique mounting system.

  63. Jackie October 28, 2008 at 9:22 pm #

    I would love to see the Slice as well. It looks like such a cool tool, but seeing it reviewed by an unbiased source would certainly help!

  64. Michelle October 28, 2008 at 9:32 pm #

    I’ve read there’s Stampology inks that work awesome on clear stamps, but I can’t find them anywhere. I would love to see a reveiw on what inks work best (full coverage) on CLEAR stamps.

  65. Kimmy October 28, 2008 at 9:39 pm #

    I’d love a review comapring different acrylic stamps companies…
    I have personally found some that just don’t work very well AT ALL & it would be cool to have a list of those before I buy more stamps!

  66. Lisa V October 28, 2008 at 10:06 pm #

    I, too, would love to see a review of the 10 Seconds Studio–where does oe start with all the products? It’s overwhelming!!!

  69. melita October 28, 2008 at 10:41 pm #

    Another one for the Slice! Also would like to hear if the Fiskars Swivel Fingertip Craft knife is that much better than the original one.

  70. Michelle October 28, 2008 at 10:52 pm #

    I would like to read reviews about monthly kits that are available – I would also like a review on the pros and cons of all these cutting systems ๐Ÿ™‚

  71. Kelly October 28, 2008 at 11:06 pm #

    wow..after reading through the comments I’ve seen quite a few things that would be awesome for reviews. Lately, I’ve been intrigued by the Glue Glider Max and would love to get more firsthand knowledge about it.

  72. Heidi Y October 28, 2008 at 11:33 pm #

    I’d love to read about the Best Kit clubs, the new Pink Bind-it-all version 2 (what’s the diff with the blue version 1???), and the best binders (American Craft, 7 gypsies, etc). Thanks for the fun giveaway!!

  73. Ward October 28, 2008 at 11:45 pm #

    I’d like to see a review on the new version of the Bind-It-All.

  74. Benga October 29, 2008 at 12:23 am #

    Definitely the slice! or how about a product comparison on die cut machines, thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  75. Kylie October 29, 2008 at 12:41 am #

    Hi, I would love to see a review on Glues and Adhesives. Especially when it comes to transperancies and vellum. It bugs me when I buy something saying that it will dry see-through, but never does!
    Thanks for the chance to possibly win, Have a good day! ๐Ÿ™‚ Kylie

  76. Peggy Houston, TX October 29, 2008 at 1:13 am #

    I am new to the blog – have you reviewed glimmer mist? Slice would be my second choice. Thanks!

  77. Jen October 29, 2008 at 1:44 am #

    The new bind-it-all, especially ideas outside the obvious use to make books/albums. (Need to justify purchase you see!)

    Also would love comparison of various glitters out there, I’m catching the glitter bug, but don’t know whether to go something loose, something with glue already, which brand, etc…


  78. jerseytjej October 29, 2008 at 3:38 am #

    Craft magazines. There are so many but which ones offer the most bang for the creativity buck?

    Cheryl Sims

  85. pink4u October 29, 2008 at 7:10 am #

    Its hard to pick just one…..but I would love to compare adhesives, slice is very tempting but expensive, and the bind it machine…
    Thanks ..this looks like a great resource to check out new products!

  86. retiredheather October 29, 2008 at 7:23 am #

  89. JenE October 29, 2008 at 8:20 am #

  119. BunnyKissd November 17, 2008 at 9:32 pm #

    I’d like to see not a review so much as a side by side comparison of the various cutting machines out there today that you can hook up to your computer & download your own original designs…
