More Highlighted Links, and New Linky Party Reminder

{If you're here to link up to Weekend Bloggy Reading, the party is on until 10 pm (ET) tonight. Great reads this weekend!}

Before I share a few more Highlighted Links from Weekend Bloggy Reading, I thought I'd send out one more reminder about tomorrow's brand NEW linky party-- I {Heart} My Crafty Cutter.

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
  • Don't have a die cutting machine? If you have a stenciling/transfer paper project or something along those lines, please feel free to add that.

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.

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

*Anyone who adds a post to the party and includes a link back to me OR my party button in their post  (whichever you prefer!) 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.

I'm happy to host your link here and if you take the time to link back to me, I'll throw your name in for the Giveaway and maybe even feature your project this week! By linking back to me, you help me grow my brand new party so I can continue to host, and I truly do appreciate your help. 

You are welcome to add more than one project, but only posts with a link-back or my party button will be considered eligible for the Giveaway.

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.
