Four FABULOUS Giveaways!

Hey, folks.  Happy Monday.

I have a fabulously wonderful giveaway for four lucky winners… and we have Heidi over at Simon Says Stamps to thank!  She is a total sweetheart and said she wanted to send me a huge box full of Tim Holtz Alteration dies to giveaway.  How cool is that?!  I am saving a few for the Cards for Kids prizes and for future giveaways, but wanted to go ahead and give some away now.  So… here is what you can win… (By the way, these work with most all die cut machines – Cuttlebug, Sizzix, etc.)

SSS Prize

Also, I thought I would share a card I made using one of these dies.  I happened to use a "reject" piece from a card I made for the Hero Arts Blog.  (Which, btw, I am hosting this week HERE – come visit me there!)  THIS die just look so fab on the front of a card…

Supplies: Hero Arts stamps (flowers, greeting, background), notecards, pearl, ink; Tim Holtz Alterations label die; ribbon from NYC shop

So, again, a huge thanks for this giveaway from Simon Says Stamps.  This is one of my favorite stores with great service.  You can find their site HERE… their blog HERE… their twitter page HERE… and their facebook page HERE. Thanks for your generosity, Heidi!

For your chance to win, just leave a comment here by Friday at 11:59pmEST telling me what your favorite must-have tools are right now.  (These dies are mine.)  And I will pick FOUR lucky winners – each who will win one of the dies above.

Off to watch the rest of The Bachelor.  For the first time, I am letting the girls watch it.  And let me tell you, we are laughing to the point of tears.  Audrey is most excellent at imitating these guys.  Too funny.

  1. I am loving my corner chomper right now and I can’t create without my punches! Still learning how to use my silhouette, but my newest love are my flippin’ fantastic Tim Holtz scissors, best scissors I own the search is over!
    Thanks for the chance to win one of these super cool dies.

  2. Ahhh funny you ask this question. Twice a year my family goes away for a long weekend to scrapbook. One question always asked each time is, “If you were stranded on a island, which four tools would you want with you?”. Paper, tape, pictures, albums don’t count – as they are not tool.

    Here are my four.
    1. Perfect Layers: A set of three plastic ruler type tools that allow you to exactly cut the perfect layer around each picture or item that you are layering. I use these everytime, I am mounting a picture onto paper. LOVE THEM!
    2. Zutter paper cutter: cuts paper in half or thirds equally each time. Can you tell I am a perfectionist yet?
    3. My Scotch ATG tape gun. Holds massive amounts of tape and is easy and inexpensive to use.
    4. My paper cutter: I can’t imagine scrapping without one.

    My Dream/Goal is to someday – have enough time to scrap like I would love too and to have a scrapbook room like yours. Ahhh – – good to have dreams!

  3. What a great giveaway! Thanks so much! The tool I use the most is my Cricut machine. I love it! I did just get a new tool that I’m falling in love with. It’s the bow easy! I’m not much of a bow maker so when I got it I was thrilled that I might have normal looking bows now. 😀


  4. What did you use on the edge of Tim’s die? Looks great.
    My favorite too is my Cuttlebug. So versatile and I need to go play with it!

  5. I use my shapeabilities dies such a lot but have been looking over the new Tim Holtz dies. they look so good and I would love the opportunity to try those as well. Thanks for the inspiration Jennifer.

  6. I would love the Buterfly. I also love all the distress inks, but only have 2 of them.

    thanks for the chance to win.

  7. I simply cannot live without my ATG tape gun, TH distress inks, anything Club Scrap & my Silhouette SD(i wanna marry it!)

  9. My go to tools right now are the distress inks and punches(ek & ms). Great card, I love the idea.

  10. My must have was the Tim Holtz flower set die cut. I just bought it and I just love it and use it all the time. Now I need to add to my wish list with these wonderful die’s.

  11. My favorite tools? Yeah right! I absolutely love everything. I just recently purchased the Tim Holtz die tattered florals and I just can’t get enough of it. I have so much fun making the tattered roses. This die is amazing. Also I bought the die caged bird. It really is amazing all of the things you can make from this die. I love birds and bird cages and believe me this bird cage is awesome. Oh, the blending too is magnificent. All of his products are wonderful. I have never found anything that I don’t like. Well these aren’t tool’s but I love the inks most of all. I also bought the foundations box feet and they are wonderful on my cigar boxes. How did we ever live without Tim Holtz?

  12. Do I have to pick just one fav tool? Border punches, scor-pal & Big Shot (for dies & embossing folders) are used on everything I make these days – the Tim Holtz dies & folders are on my wish list.

    Thanks for your inspiration & a great giveaway

  13. Great card, it’s beautiful! My favorite tool is my Sizzix machine. Love the new die cuts by Tim Holtz. Thanks for the chance to win.

  15. My Tim Holtz scissors and nonstick mat! I love the new dies and can’t wait to get my hands on them 🙂

  16. Wow! That is a fabulous giveaway. I love Tim Holtz stuff. Right now I would say that the cuttlebug is a must have tool. You can emboss and cut with Tim Holtz new dies!

  17. I guess we get used to so many tools, it’s hard to imagine being without any of them. I love my guillotine cutter, score-pal, tombow dots adhesive, PTI stamps, Hero Arts bird stamps(I have tons!), tuxedo black ink, etc. I can just imagine adding some Tim Holtz dies. . .

  18. Favorite tool is my new Cuttlebug. New to this art so learning everyday. Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  19. MM Corner Chomper (am so addicted to that thing!), Embossing folders (Cuttlebug, Sizzix, SU!) for added texture & elegant, paper trimmer, t-square ruler, clear ruler, ATG glue gun and my Big Shot (with dies too numerous to name). I am a tool junkie but these are my most loved & most used tools!

  20. Oh my…I love it all, but I would have to say my Cuddlebug, Nesties, and Ionic scissors for cutting intricate parts!

  21. Absolutely fabulous card!
    I would say at this point my must have tools are: my fiskars trimmer, crop a dile & adhesive! I would love to win those tim holtz dies and I see I am in great company.
    Thank you & Heidi at Simon Says Stamp for a shot at winning.
    What wonderful prize options.
    Take care!

  22. My must have tool at the moment is my Big Shot. When I bought it I wondered if I’d ever get my money’s worth out of it. I can’t seem to get enough of all the new texture plates and I have been using it almost daily! Thank you so much for the chance to win those cool dies!

  23. I just love my corner chomper and my tiny attacher. Those new dies are among the items in my wish list at the moment! Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

    Right now I am using alcohol ink like cazy.

  25. My current “must have tools” right now are flower punches and the border punches. I have the cricut but ya just can’t beat a quick punch and be all done (no mats to clean off and put away). This current must have will probably be completely different next week! LOL Thanks for the opportunity to win something! Those dies are awesome! 🙂

  26. I love what you did with the die cut. It looks beautiful on the card. My favorite tool right now would be my Big Shot…and these wonderful dies would work perfectly. 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win & thanks to Simon Say Stamp (I purchased from them before & had great service)

  27. I recently picked up a Big Shot and it’s my new favourite toy for scrappin’ right now! I have been busy collecting new dies, and one of these would make a great addition! Thanks for giving the chance to win one!!

  28. Oh, how I would love to get my hands one one of those dies! I have been “dying” to try them out in my Cuttlebug!

    Peace, Becky

  35. My must have right now is Beacon’s 3-in-1 glue. I had totally turned against glue but now find I use it for almost all of my attaching… from tiny to full page.

  36. What an amazing give-away. I know they would be my favorite tool. But right now, I’m loving Tim’s distressing folders. Sanding, inking, everything works great with these.

  37. My favorite tool is my new cuttlebug and Spellbinders scallop dies. I’m cutting all my scraps and using the new distress inks to add more color. Thanks for letting me be in the drawing. Cool dies.
