~Happy Video Tutorial Tuesday & A RAK for fun!~

Morning my crafty crafters!
Just a quick note, I am on Helmar today.
Since my video has some Helmar in it, we posted it on their blog.
http://www.helmarusa.typepad.com/
*psst...don't forget the DT call for Helmar!*




While I was in West Virginia this weekend I found some GREAT
deals and the first thought that came to my mind was...
"WHAT GREAT RAKS for my blog!~"
So I picked up a FEW goodies to give away!
Now here is the first goody, it is a brand new 8X8 paper pad from Cosmo Cricket
and look at the fantastic shape on the edge of the paper! HELLO!
Plus they have journaling cards inside too.

This is the first prize for this week and I have a few more from me
and one from a Manufacturer too!
But I am going to make you work for it LOL
Follow my blog *duh* and if you are not a Fan of Helmar,
go check out Helmar on Facebook! HERE
sign up and tell them Pinky or Cristal sent ya!
Or become a follower on their blog! HERE
The girls work so hard to bring you new ideas or inspiration on a daily basis,
I am proud to be a part of such an amazing product/group.
Don't worry if you are already a fan or follower, you have the same chance!

If we can get more than 20 crafters to sign up, I will give away
another great prize to top it off! :)
Let's have some fun this week!

Oh and enjoy the video guys! Let me know
if you try it, I want to see your project!

~Have a great day~
~Thanks for popping by and saying hey~

Super tutorial. Thank Becky for letting you share it. I love the look of stitching but my sweing machine weighs 50 lbs so it does not come out unless I have reall sewing to do. This is a great alternative.
