Elmer's Crafters Challenge ~ My Project ~ Your Chance to Win!




I made my project, which is a 12" x 12" scrapbook page of my daughter , for the Elmer's Crafters Challenge on the weekend.  I have to say, I just loved the Elmer's and X-Acto products!  I was at a weekend Scrapbooking retreat and ended up using the Products extensively ... Here's what I used on this particular page:
Elmer's Craft Bond Permanent Tape runner - I am giving this tape runner a full 5 stars.  It sticks, it works, it does everything it is supposed to do and best of all it is refillable ... I used most of it  up during the weekend, and yes it is just that good.
Elmers Craft Bond Glue Spots, Adhesive Squares and Wet & Dry dual tip glue pen.  The glue pen was another amazing product.  I used it to glue the metal backed brad to the home made rayon fabric flower.  It worked like a charm!
X-ACTO Designer Series 9" trimmer, precision scissors, cutting mat and craft knife.  I have been looking for the perfect craft knife for years ... and I have finally found it ... this knife is so comfortable to grip and use and sharp!  cuts like a charm!

Overall I was totally impressed with all of the products ... these products work ...  the adhesives stick, they do what they promise ... the cutting tools were amazing as well.  I highly recommend all of these products
I liked these products so much i ended up using them on all of my other weekend projects.

So here it is ... a simple layout ... but using pretty papers by The Girl's Paperie, with lots of hand cutting.

Who would like to win some of these amazing products???  Elmer's will give out prize packages to 3 of my lucky readers.  And I am giving you up to 3 chances to win one of those packages.  For one chance just leave a comment on this post.  For a second chance become a follower and leave that in a separate comment.  For a third chance, grab my button and post it to your sidebar (feel free to take it down once this giveaway is over).    Mr Random number generator will draw the winners next Tuesday, October 14th, so get your comments in before then.

I love your project. Clicking on both to make them larger allowed me to see detail. Especially like the 2nd one to see all the intricacy of the flower and beads.
