Vicki Morris, her comment was...That would be an awesome package to get. I was thinking of something for a young teen, something like this http://parentingteens.about.com/gi/o.htm?zi=1/XJ&zTi=1&sdn=parentingteens&cdn=parenting&tm=12&f=10&tt=14&bt=0&bts=1&zu=http%3A//www.wittyliving.com/crafts/scrapbooking/layouts/make_minialbum.html It's a mini album for pictures of friends.

Ryansmaama, her comment was...What great fun. I would like to see some Christmas projects.

and

Ivette...her comment was How about a really cool Spongebob or Batman related 3D scene, or a cool zoo scene with all the animals again in 3D. Make your own grass by cutting out tiny slivers of different shades of greens and then just place them wherever you like with glue dots. The upcoming holidays are good, but you want to make something that can be used throughout the year, not just limited to a particular holiday. Also, not everyone celebrate the same holiday, or a holiday at all. I'd gladly help you with further insight if you like. Just email me privately. ;)

CONGRATULATIONS LADIES. A rep from Elmer's will be contacting you soon.

  1. I think you should make a set of note cards. It will showcase several things at one time.

  3. Hi Linda. What a great prize this would be! Gosh, there are just so many things you could make. How about making a dry erase board using a picture frame and create a scrapbook paper background using your favorite paper. You could even change out your background according to seasons. How cool would that be? My email address is: aebowers@embarqmail.com

    Good Luck! Annette

  5. Use the scissors and the craft knife to cut out fall leaves and glue them to a wreath form for a cute fall decoration.

  6. Such a great contest for you! And a chance at some great goodies for us! Since part of your blog is about using the Cricut, and keeping us all informed of the different cartridges and such, you should make an organizer for the Cricut Sheets we get from you!

  7. Maybe make some Halloween treat bags. You could do some pretty neat edges with those decorative scissors.

  8. Since Christmas is coming up you could make gift boxes filled with candy for friends. Embellish them with diecuts and ribbons, add tags, fill with chocolate and you have a terrific last minute gift for office workers, your mail person, the paperboy/girl.

  9. Hmm That's kinda a hard one. At first I was thinking maybe some of those cute M&M tubes that have been floating around blog-ville. But then again how many would you make...How about a thank you crafty frame. Sorry no link just what popped into my head :). You could get a cheap frame from a craft store and make a pretty thank you inside it. Just a thought

  14. Wow what an awesome box of goodies! I'd love to see some Cricut inspired photo Christmas cards. I always use my daughter's picture on our Christmas cards but also like to make them myself . So any ideas that incorporate both our crafty stuff and a picture on a card?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Geez oh pizza ... so many ideas come to mind! How about a 'count down to ..." calendar (insert a holiday or other important event in your family) ie: For Valentines, I decorated those heart shaped candy boxes, put little "task" notes on the bottom of the flat bottom marbles, & had the Grand-kids choose one marble each day.

    Best wishes for your crafting project!

  17. A wreath. Have you seen the one that MM did with the strips of curled paper around a foam wreath? It was darling. Took a ton of strips, but looked worth it. Then little cut outs all over the wreath. You could do one with a Halloween or Thanksgiving theme. A friend of mine posted hers here: http://www.acherryontop.com/articles/Halloween-Wreath-Project-by-Making-Memories-8092

    I'm sure whatever you choose it will be fab =)

  20. Wow! What a great package. I would craft a thank you card using Elmer's packaging as background and display it on my blog.

    ReplyDelete
  21. what a grat box of crafty goodness.
    I've seen the elmer's stuff at Walmart and as a Fiskateer was sad that they took out the Fiskars. So I am indeed wondering if it will be as good.
    I think you should do something with LOTS of adhesive to make sure it's gonna last. Maybe a haunted house or a bird house. Before I buy this stuff, I want to make sure it's gonna work and not fall off.
    OHHHH and little embellies that we make with our Cricuts or punches. Nothing worse than sending a card to find out the embellies fell off during mailing.
    I'm anxious to see the results everyone gets. Especially in the long run.

  22. I am thinking that a home decor item for Christmas would be great! Maybe a 3D Christmas tree or cute banner? Can't wait to see what you choose!!

  25. Linda,

    I just went to a weekend crop called "Scrapfest" in Mandeville, LA. It is held two times a year and there are so many talented store owners/teachers there. One of them created a cupcake. It was a chipboard shaped cupcake and it was covered with liquid Elmer's glue and then a piece of corrugated paper was cut to the shape of the bottom of the cupcake (creating the wavy cupcake wrapper) and it was glued on the bottom piece. Then a piece of white tissue paper was glued to the top (very loosly pressed down as to create fluffy icing). It was then "blinged" up by gluing a cherry shaped piece of paper to the top and then "stickled". Too cute.......just an idea. I sure hope I win!!!

  30. What a great box of goodies. I've been wondering also about the Elmer brand at Walmart. I sure hope it is of superb quality like Elmer's regular glue. It's hard to decide what to make, but I am thinking Calendar, either a yearly one, a school year one, or a baby's first year. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

  32. Hi Linda,
    I saw a show on DYI Scrapbooking that illustrated a really neat idea for an accordion fold scrapbook album using painting canvases as the covers which gave you the ability to add 3d embellishments inside the album on the back side of the canvas. You need 2 canvases, one for the front and back of your album. You can make these any size you choose simply by increasing the amount of your according fold paper. The size can also vary according to the size of the canvas you choose. The show was on yesterday and I don’t know the show number but you might find it here on their web site: http://www.diynetwork.com/search/results.do?diySearchString=scrapbooking&diySearchType=diynetwork.com
    Good Luck,

  34. That is a great surprise! I love the tub! I think I would use the tub to make a great storage container for some of your supplies. I use a tub about like that to store my flowers in. It would be really cute to decorate the outside of it! The other idea I had was to do a cookie sheet and here is one link for that: http://www.craftbits.com/project/altered-cookie-tray-notice-board

  41. My suggestion would be to make some cute fall gift baskets, that way you can eve use the shreddy stuff they sent in the box. Also you very light box for taking pictures of cards and crafts. Between those two projects you could use every thing they sent you at least once.

  74. Hi Linda. How about a Fall scrapbook page layout. The leaves are changing here in PA so a layout of the changing season would look great. You could use the sissors to cut out the frames, borders, pictures and the glue /adhesives to glue them down. Good luck.

  76. WOW! That is a wonderful goodie tub. As I have just taken a minute from crafting a mini-album on all the hair styles my family members have had (what great laughs they have provided), I was thinking a chipboard album would be a great use of the knife and glue as well as using the colored pens. You are so creative, I'm sure whatever you choose will be awesome.

  94. As Christmas approaches you could make an advent calendar. The exacto knife is the perfect tool for cutting the small windows. I made one 2 years ago using wrapping paper for the calendar blocks and tin cans with lids for the "suprise" part instead of cardboard windows. It was built using a paint canvas. The extra strenth glue stick would have been ideal for gluing each square to the canvas. Good Job to Elmer's. My girls and I would have LOVED to get such a nice surprise in the mail! Good Luck on your crafting adventure. Here is where I found the original idea for the calendar I made.

  95. OMG the tub is cute and I would probably make a banner with all the goodies in the box. I love self healing mats. I have made several, check out my blog at tmorrowstreasures.blogspot.com. What a great prize.

  96. I just love it! Woah what a haul!
    I'm thinking scrapbooking. I'm just crazy about scrapbooking. Lots of layouts, use the container for a "hauling" mechanism, Exacto pieces and parts out of different papers to use as embellies.....the possiblities are just endless..... I'd love to be able to try it myself! Thanks for the opportunity.

  102. what a neat gift. I think one of the 7 gypsies printers trays would be a great project. I saw one done as a haunted house for halloween - a christmas one could be beautiful, and could use all of the products. http://www.archiversonline.com/ideas/2906

You could use several of your goodies~ You wouldn't be able to show each month probably but you could easily showcase a few of the months.

  110. Lucky Linda! I think you should make a Halloween candy container from recycled products. Use your cricut & cut a scarecrow, ghost, witch, monster or other characters. Cover a cardboard shoe box with Halloween paper(from your stash) & cut with the X-acto knife & mat to fit the edges and glue to your box with your Elmer's glue products. Cut a strip of coordinating paper with the fancy scissors to go around the inside top. Glue the characters around the edges & fill with candy & share the fun. Thanks for the opportunity.

  116. Wow what a fun package! I think to feature the knife and glue I would try to make a 3-D halloween tree- some sort of bare tree crossed on another one like it (to make it stand) and then lots of cute little halloween-ish or fall-ish creations hanging on it cut from the cricut and blinged or made 3D as necessary until it looks cute. Anyhow I have not idea id I have described it well enough or even seen anything like it to give you an image but if you want to transfer the image in my mind, I would sure love to do that :)

  159. I've got one for you. Did you ever go to those Halloween or other themed party where they have the bean bag toss? Well, what about doing a table-top version only where pom-pom bugs would be thrown and not bean bags. You'd need to cut holes (use other shapes besides just circles) and use your Cricut to make haunted houses, spider webs, ghosts, or other objects - the holes would be the center of these objects (i.e. a door or random windows cut out of the haunted house). The pom-pom bugs (googlie eyes glued on) wouldn't destroy the board and it's a gentle version. It could be used at school or at home with kids/grandkids. It doesn't have to be Halloween themed. Just make sure you make it stand on it's own so the holes aren't blocked.

    Thanks for the chance to win. Can't wait to see what you do.
