New Silhouette/Cricut/Die Cutter Linky Party Announcement!

This may be the most selfish blog party I've ever hosted. Let's keep that between us, okay?

I thought it might be neat to host a party where crafty bloggers could link up any tips, tricks, or projects they might have that are "crafty cutter" related. It will be like having an entire library of fabulousness at my your disposal. See how selfish generous I am? {wink}


Anything related to your Cricut, Silhouette, Sizzix, Cuttlebug, etc. is welcome: 

  • Projects or crafts you've completed
  • Tips on how to use software, make supplies last longer, rig your machine up to do special stuff
  • Ways you organize your supplies

The I {Heart} My Crafty Cutter party will open on Monday, February 21st, at 9 am (ET) and will close at 10 pm (ET) on Friday, February 25th. So, if you're like me and are still learning to use your Silhouette (or haven't seen your Cricut in awhile), you have some time to work things out before the first party launches!


Because I spent this month's budget on the nanny's fees and the Rolls Royce payment, the prize for participants is small, but I did want to offer something!

*Anyone who links up and includes a link back to me OR my party button in their post will be entered to win a $10 Gift Card to Starbucks and a Coffee Cozie in your choice of colors from Stitch Sense Designs. Because everyone knows that crafting is more fun with a fancy drink, and why shouldn't you accessorize your to-go mug?! It's not much, but my way of saying thank you to those of you who take the time to join the party.
Here's the button code if you want to add it to your blog to help me get the word out! If things go well, we might make this a monthly thing.

  1. What a good idea, Amanda! I don't have a machine, but it seems that there are a lot of bloggers who have one and would love to learn how to use it better. I hope you get lots of participation!

  18. Girl, you are stealing my heart! I have yet to use my Silhouette that I got for Christmas. I have spent a good amount of time perusing their online store and trying to figure things out, but I have yet to actually fire 'er up! Hopefully this will help me out a bit. I definitely feel intimidated. ;)

I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
