"Blog Candy~ Giveaway #2"



Holy crap!! We did decide that I can say that on a blog right? LOL I am so excited right now. You all had such nice things to say to me and about me and my crafting. It brought a tear to my eye. I feel truly blessed to have "friends" like you all. Even if I don't know anyone personally. I hope you are all having fun with the giveaways. I know I am. You are all gonna die when you see what I am giving away on Friday. It is BIG so you definitely want to sign up to win that one. Not that the other ones aren't cool but Friday's is HUGE!!! Ok, enough about that. On to today's giveaway. I am giving away the supplies needed to make beaded pens. (along with printed directions in case you don't know how to make them). You will be getting 10 pens, one pack of microbeads (which is enough to make almost 20 pens) 12 address labels pre cut to size, and 12 pieces of tacky tape also cut to size. The only thing you need to provide is stamps, a heat gun, and container to roll the pens in. (you can use an empty stamp case for that) AND since I am in a giving mood. I am going to pick 2 winners for this one! Woo Hoo!!! So to register to win this blog candy, leave me a comment on this post telling me what your favorite crafting item is. What can you not live without. For me, as you know, it is the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig. I use it every time I stamp.

The deadline for wining this fantastic blog candy is Sunday May 25th. I will draw all the names Sunday at midnight my time and announce the winners on Monday May 26th. Please feel free to enter to win all of the blog candy that is being offered this week. You can win more than once. You have to enter each one though. One entry doesn't enter you in all of the giveaways.

Wow, I'm first for this one! I love this giveaway! I have been inspired and recently made my first beaded pens. Thanks! The 'thing' I cannot live without is my paper piercer. I love it and use it ALL THE TIME.

Nancy said...

That is a hard one. I love all the tools, and everything that goes with them. I love my tape runner. I made my first pen Sat. and I can't wait to make more. Nancy P.

MORE?? MORE cool stuff?? What a great week to discover a cool blog!! It was the crayon and popcorn projects that got me peekin' round your blog. And your right, Jenn's blog is AWESOME too!!

Thanks for the chance for some great candy!!

Jennifer Orbaker said...

Holy cow!! I so want to win this blog candy! I have made the beaded pens a few times, but I never have the right sizes of things. It would be great to have it all put together like that. You should sell these little kits when you start selling stuff on your blog. I bet they would go over really great!

My favorite tool that I can't live without is my Cuttlebug right now! I know it isn't SU, but I just love embossing with it!!

Cheryl said...

This is a no brainer for me--my favorite craft item is my ATG gun as it makes applying adhesive so much easier and is very strong. The cost is a big factor also. Love it. thanks for the fun week.

Hi,
I can't do without my Fiskars paper cutter - but my ScorPal is quickly becoming just as important.
Thanks,

Corey said...

I just ordered the stamp-a-majig!!!!!! can't wait to use it. I think right now my fav is my crop-a-dile!! Guilt free eyelet setting :)
Have a super stampin day!!

Amy said...

Questions like this are so hard for me! I love my paper piercer but I think punches are crucial for me. I love to punch stuff! Don't ask me to pick which punch!

I'd love to win this kit! How fun! I haven't tried these before but they are on my list. :)

cricketpe said...

I am brand new to stamping (as in I have made a grand total of 2 cards; and they're not very great), so I don't have anything I can't live without yet and my supply selection is limited at this point. So for me, I can't live without the basics! Stamps and ink!

Pam Clay said...

Boy, this give-away just keeps getting better! I forgot to tell you yesterday that I'm from the northeast corner of Arkansas and I didn't want to post twice. The one craft thing I can't live without is my Stamp-n-scrub. I've GOT to have my stamps clean! hehe!
Thanks for your awesome blog!

Denise... said...

Oh my gosh...I LOVE your pens! Ooooo...I hope I win because I so want to make these!!

M said...

I've been peeking at your blog for some time now. Such cute ideas. I haven't tried this pen idea yet. They always look so fun so make. Take care.

PS> I like the black background the best.

M said...

Oh, forgot to say my favorite. I dunno....how about my whole craft area. Just helps me relax ya know?

Okay, that's it.

Hopin' I win!!

Harriet Skelly (SCS hskelly) said...

I'd have to say my favorite tool that I can't live without is my Cuttlebug since I use it almost every time I make a card - I use it with the nesties, embossing folders, die cuts!

Jenn2110 said...

I love your beaded pens! I totally want to win this blog candy! I have lots of favorites, but I do love all my stampin up punches. I buy a new one every month. Thanks again for all the inspiration!

Anonymous said...

I can not live without my punches. Almost every card I do uses a punch, and I want them ALL! I have always wanted to make these pens, and haven't had the time to figure them out!

Carrie Atkinson

Kristen said...

I love the beaded pens. This will be a great little starter kit to figure out how to make them! You're amazingly generous!

Tiffany said...

Nice giveaway! I love your pens.

I couldn't live without my Cutterbee scissors. They are awesome for getting into those little corners.

AlexsMom said...

My favorite crafting item is my punches especially the scallop punch from SU!. It can be used for so many things. And yes you do inspire us all!!

Wow - more great give-a-ways! Gosh there are so many things I love in my crafting room but my one item is my Cuttlebug. I love that little "bugger"! I can't make a card without it!
Barb M. (from PA)

Sandra said...

How very generous of you! My favorite crafting item right now is my Scor-pal. I use it all the time to make cards, envelopes, boxes, etc.. I love how quick, easy, and accurate it is to use.

Sandra in NE

Hilmarose said...

I would love to have a bind it all, that WILL BE my fav tool! I just got a cuddlebug, but nothing to use with it yet.... so I REALLY don't have a fav tool just yet :(

cyndi said...

what I can't be without is my Scor-it, works great for boxes, bags, and all the paper crafts I do. Thanks for all these changes to win your blog candy.

Amy said...

What fun! I've always wanted to try one of these!!!

I've just bought one of those nonstick craft mats that you can emboss on or get ink all over and it all just wipes away! I love it...a new favorite for sure!

Deb Neerman said...

Happy Tuesday, Kiddo!!

Tuff, tuff, question! I know I can't live w/o my Tonic paper cutter ... or my stamp positioners as I use both of them all the time too.

The Cuttlebug & Nesties ... ? Copic Markers ... ?

Can't pick one!

~Hugs, Deb

snowkitten73 said...

Hi Rochelle! It seems impossible to come up with my favorite crafting supply. I love my Personal Trimmer from CM, all of stamps, inks and pens from SU, and SU decorative paper!

Heather said...

My favorite stamping item is definitely the cuttlebug. Best investment I've ever made craft wise!

Annapurna said...

Even if I don't win these, you should send me the instructions on making these pens.
Thank you.

Diana said...

This is very exciting ...Your so sweet ...
The I cant live with out ...well I would have to say things ..MY STAMPS !!!!! they are the most important than any tool ..
I love them ..
Thanks for the fun ...
Diana

Deanne said...

I cannot live without my paper trimmer! I would probably learn to cut a straight line but why would I if I have my paper trimmer!!!
I love this place, Rochelle, and am so glad you update so often and post!!! Thanks so much!!!!

jimlynn said...

I really think I change my "favorite" weekly.......However, I'm in LOVE with the Cuddlebug at this time. There are just so many neat things out there right now.....love them all. Lynn

Kelley said...

Right now I'm loving my Scor-Pal but my all time favorite is my Tonic guillotine trimmer. I had such a situation with crooked cuts until then. Not anymore! :) Thanks for the chance to win such awesome blog candy!

Allison said...

This is a brilliant idea for a giveaway! I have never made these before (perhaps I should look it up!). Cheers Rochelle!

Yvonne said...

I cannot live without my Crop-A-Dile. I love that! It is so awesome the way it embosses, punches holes, and sets eyelets.

Mare said...

Love the giveaways; very fun..i'll have to tell a friend to visit your blog too. Keep up the creative work. You’re the best.

Tracie said...

Wow...I would love to learn how to make beaded pens. My favourite tool is my mini paper trimmer. It's so handy and not as awkward as my 12 inch trimmer. Enjoy your day!

Kirsten said...

My absolute favorite crafting item is ribbon. I use it on just about everything thing I do, even the 2 beaded pens I have done had ribbons tied on the caps. If you are looking more for a tool item it would be a toss up between my SAMJ and the crop a dile.

Niki said...

Wow, each day gets better and better. I absolutely love my Fiskar's Titanium softouch scissors. They make cutting out small pieces so much easier.

Thanks!

galias said...

Now U are spoiling us with prizes.

Great prizes!! Thanks so much for the chance to in.

Katherine Walcott said...

Okay, my favorite, can't live without tool is my SU! cutter. However, I can't stamp a sentiment without my Stamp-a-ma-jig so that has to be right up there too. Thanks for all your wonderful inspiration!

Margaret S said...

Oh My Gosh!!! I love your Bolg Cancy today...*smile*

I've made a beaded pen before. Actually, I've made two. Several years ago, I made my first one. All the micro beads fell off. I never made one since, until last month. A master, of these pens, showed me her "secret" of how to keep the beads on.

My favorite crafting item, are my punches!!! If I'm not layering - I'm punchin' I have to have one (layer or punch) or both, on my cards.

Margaret S

Kim's Korner said...

Wow, this is one blog that I would like to win. Everytime I go to get some of these pens, they are sold out. I love to check out your blog and see what new ideas and surprise you have. Keep up the good work. You are an inspiration to me.

Kim

A Stamper's Journey said...

This is a hard one. I guess I can't live without my paper cutter and my stamp n' scrub. Okay that's two. I guess I can't count. Love your blog...and your give aways!

Anonymous said...

My favorite crafting tool would have to be my 3M ATG Tape Gun. I love how well it keeps everything together and in the long run, the price is fantastic!

Have a great week and thanks for the blog candy!

Marica (mggoldintx on SCS)

Cheryl said...

It is so hard to pick just one tool but I would have to say my ATG gun--can't make any projects without adhesive and it is the most cost effective.

Regina Cornelius said...

oh wow! i would love to enter this candy! one tool, huh? hmmm... i would have to say i love my tabletop cutter from stampin up!
thanks!

Good day from Canada, EH?? Gee, the crafting item I can't live with out would have to be my Custom Cutting System from Creative Memories....it makes perfect circles and ovals and I can use it for my scrapbooking or my card making...LOVE IT!! A close second is embellishments....they can just make a card that little bit extra.

Shauna said...

I love the Non-stick Craft Sheet by Inkssentials that I was introduced to when I took a class with Tim Holtz! I have it permenantly on my craft table, and it makes clean up so easy--among other things!

I recently used my Stamp-a-ma-jig that I've had for a couple of years, and I can see why you use it all the time! I'm tired of re-doing projects because I don't get the words or the image stamped right where I want them!!! With the Stamp-a-ma-jig you get it perfect every time! Thanks for the wonderful blog candy and all the chances to win!

Maria Matter said...

What a cool idea! I never made a beaded pen but the pens you're offering are my favotire brand!

Sally said...

I can't live without my Color Box cat eye inks. I use them on stamps and direct to paper andeverything1 Thanks for sharing!

Nancy said...

Rochelle ~ Girl you are unreal with your blog candy! You really don't have to give us a chance to win these gifts but we appreciate it muchly!
Something I can't live without...that's a tough one. Probably my punches. I seem to use those on more of my cards than not.
Thanks!

Kathi said...

My favorite crafting supply would have to be my Nestabilities. I have just finished buying the 4 complete sets--ovals, circles, squares, & rectangles. Just love them and use them often.

jonbonjovious said...

How fun!
Your projects are amazing.

My favorite is my ScorPad. It's awesome!

My can't live without tool is the Creative Memories straight cutter. I love the pens. I have never made them but would like to learn how!
Valerie

Tamara Follett said...

That is a totally cool idea--a pen-making kit--love it! I can't live without my paper trimmer. I actually wore away the groove in my last one, so as soon as I became an SU demo I ordered a new one!

scrappinmaniac said...

My favorite crafting item, hum... I have so many favorites. I am just getting the hang of using the Stamp a ma jig. I love my Cricut Expressions and my stamp pad and reinker shelf. Everything at my fingertips and organized. Woo Hoo!
Thanks again,
Sandy

Congrats again and thanks for the chance to win your awesome candy.

I will choose my Fiskars cutter but also really like the punches I have. Want a ScorPal next!!!

The Gardners said...

You are so generous! I would have to say my favorite item is by folding bone. I appreciate nice, crisp lines, so use it all the time.

Michelle said...

I've never made these pens! This would be a great starter kit! I love my punches. I use them alot! They're great for punching sentiments and using dimensionals to make them pop!

Us 4 Vol Fans said...

Rochelle, thanks for all of the give-a-ways that you are doing. I love your blog and visit it often.

Crafting item that I can't live without...hummmmmmmmm....does computer and printer count? I don't think I could live with them because I do a lot more with printing than with stamping when I'm working on something.

Lisa

Cindy said...

Oh, what a fun week this will be! I've not tried the pens yet because I have visions of beads falling off.

My favorite tool? That's like asking which is my favorite child! I love them all. Stampamajig,Crop a dile, Big Shot. I'm a gadget junkie and papercraft tools are soooo cool.

Anonymous said...

I would have to say the one thing I could not live without is the Fiskars paper cutter. After reading some of the previous comments, though, I realize there are many other items I need to get my hands on :).

I too have never made these pens, but I may have to give it a try.

Thanks for the inspiration!

You Rock!! Love your 3D projects ALOT! I visit your blog every night before bed. I don't have a blog and haven't joined your subscription. I am a new SU demo in VA and when I'm feeling like a creative cripple, I view your blog to rejuvenate. Keep the neat ideas and inspiration coming!!

Wow, my favorite crafting item right now is my new cuttlebug, but I need some new folders for it. I just have 1 set of four floral. Last month it was my new cropadile, and the month before that it was my new ATG 714 adhesive gun.Thanks for the chance to win.

Kadie Labadie said...

I just couldn't live without my Paper Trimmer with both the score blade and the cutting blade. Take everything else away from me-and I could still create with just my paper trimmer. (now don't try it...but I COULD still create!) Thanks for this opportunity to win one of your fabulous Blog Candies! Kadie

Sandra Smart said...

ok, it was hard waiting, but I did not want to be first again! :)
I think my favorite tool is my cuttlebug. Thanks Rochelle, and thanks for visiting me and leaving me such nice comments!

I'm with you on the Stamp-a-ma-jig. I don't know what I'd do w/o it!!

Mandiannie said...

Well, I love all my stamping stuff, but the tool that I find that I'm lost without it my Fiskars trimmer. It makes all my projects so much easier.
Great candy by the way and some great cards and sets.

Love your ideas.
They are realistic, and I usually have the stuff on hand!

Sara in WI said...

I love all of my tools! I just had to buy them all, of course. But the one that gets used every time I stamp for one reason or another is my heat gun. I fell in love with embossing 15 years ago and now there are so many things to use that heat gun for including that magic embossing in many ways. Your blog candy is awesome. I've never made the beaded pens before.

Teolinda said...

I am also a Stamp-a-ma-jig addict. I even use it with my clear stamps sometimes. :) (And I have TWO SAMJs. One stays in my tool bag to go with me and one is for my stamping desk.)

Hmm my favorite crafting tool..yikes that is a hard one! I will pick my cuttlebug. Is that considered a crafting tool??

Whimsey said...

Holy crap (I can say that in the comments right? LOL); you go girl!!!

NancyJo said...

The tools I use on every card I made are my handheld rotary cutter and ruler. The kind you would usually find in the quilting section. I have two rotary cutters - one with a cutting blade and one with a scoring blade.

I use my Fiskar's paper cutter every single time. Can't live without it!

Hi Rochelle! WOW! You already have 100 comments on this one!

My favorite crafting tool is ... YOU!

Where would any of us be without the inspiration to create provided by wonderful friends throughout the world?!?!?

STAMP ON!!

Sara Paschal said...

What fun, these supplies are wonderful. I so hope you can start up the store for us here online that you were thinking about. Congrats on all of your success and thank you for the wonderful chance at blog candy this week.

De said...

Hey Rochelle!

Wow! You are so generous with your give-aways! I can't imagine something even bigger and better on Friday!

I just wanted yout to know that you are the first blog I have ever "stalked". I mean literally! When I first discovered your blog, I'd visit it 10+ times a day just to see if you posted something and I spent a long time browsing through all your posts. You truly have some really cool and different ideas. That's what I love so much. Then I discovered the email subscriptions and then later the RSS feeds so its much easier to "stalk" now. LOL. And I still visit otherwise looking for inspiration! Thanks for a great blog!

JoanOttevanger said...

Another great blog candy that you give away.
Whe don't have that overhere.

Courtney Fowler said...

Wow! I'd have to say my favorite crafting item is my new paper cutter. Used to I'd have to cut each sheet one at a time and now I just zip them all out at once!

Deb N said...

There are so many choices.....I definitely love my ATG! Got a bum one the first time around, but the new one is great and considering I'm on my second roll in a month. I can't imagine how many rolls of the Tombow I would have gone through!

mickeymouse said...

Rochelle - I see you make these pens all the time - what a great idea for a give away - all set ready to go (I've never made them with the beads). I love my punches - wish I could afford Nestabilites, but the punches will have to do. I don't think I've made too many cards without them. Thanks again! - Kristin

Maria H. said...

Rochelle: Wow, all the stuff ready to go? You rock! Well, right now anyway, my favorite crafting item is a tie between my Janome Sew mini machine, or my Cuttlebug! I go in phases though, so that it likely to change! :-) Thanks again for sharing your talents and these great blog candies! Have a good one!

Eileen M said...

After making wedding favors for not one, but two daughters getting married a week from Saturday, I would have to say Tombow multi adhesive is my absolute favorite adhesive for my crafting and cardmaking! It's miracle glue!!

Betty said...

How fun! I have never made beaded pens - looks interesting. I am in love with my scor-pal. I use it on every project.

chantryss said...

I just can't imagine working without my ATG these adys. It has made life so much better. Thanks for the great giveaway opportunities!

jmniffer said...

Great candy offering! My must have tool is my papercutter (boring, but true). The more fun, must have tool is all my punches. Can't seem to stop buying and using them! Thanks for the chance to win. jmniffer

Beth Redding said...

Woo hoo Rochelle!!!
You are da' bomb of the giveaways :) You, my friend, are the one that sent me my very first beaded pen (which I still have and use daily!-it is down to 3/8" of ink in the barrel-lol-so I will just have to replace the inside, as I could never give up this most wonderful gift). That pen inspired me to make so very many more as gifts, and everyone loves them!!! So, I can always use more supplies to keep me going!
My favorite crafting item (if I had to pick just one) is also the Stamp-a-ma-jig. Although I don't use it every time I stamp, when I need it, there is absolutely nothing that can take it's place! Blessings,
Beth

Melissa said...

My favorite thing I have is my little caddy tote that I carry around. It is small enough to put in a large tote, but large enough to have all my essentials in it. My scissors, bone folder, glue, etc. It is probably the one thing in my life that is organized. Ps what fun you must be having reading all the entries.

Anonymous said...

Rochelle, ohh ohhh pick me pick me!! lol!! My favorite this is the spin around that holds my ink pads that my hubby made. The only thing is...I need more spaces to hold the "In Colors" that come out every 6 mo. from SU!! Thanks for sharing and Congrats again on the Blog hits! Barb S.

Krista said...

I love your pens! You do such the neatest things with them!! My favorite thing are the PUNCHES! I am such a punch junkie!! In fact, I have my Michael's coupon and my Archiver's coupon ready in my calendar to go buy new punches this weekend!! Pick me, pick me!! (Thanks for visiting the other site I told you about!)

kathleenh said...

Woohoo! Great blog candy Rochelle! I would have to say the tool I can't live without is my crafter's tool kit. I use the paper piercer, foam mat, template, reverse tweezers all of the time!

scraphappytoni said...

Great work. My favorite item is my cutter which both cuts and scores.

Velta said...

I would have to say that my favorite tool in stamping is my Scor-Pal...I use it everytime that I make anything at all. You surprised me with yours being the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig...Guess I need to get that especially since you love it...Lord knows what I can do with it. TFS!

Isabel Z said...

My favorite tool is my Scor-Pal. Don't know what I would do without it. Thanks so much for your inspiration and for taking the time to share your artistry with us all.

I haven't made a beaded pen for so long! I love them and probably "over made" them when I first learned how! I'm not sure that I have one thing that I use over and over again - but if I have to pick something, I would say, I try to incorporate some bling with all my projects. I love bling!

Terry said...

Ohhh - that's a hard one! It would have to be either my ATG tape gun or my Fiskars paper cutter. I can't imagine doing without either one of them. I have always wanted to make some of these pens but just never have! Thanks again for inspiring me with your wonderful blog.

JenniferL. said...

My favorite craft tool is my scor-pal. I have tried so many new projects that are so quick that to the scor-pal (like those hershey kiss boxes I cased from you the other day).

Sally said...

Oh wow, would love to make these pens the way that you do! I would have to say my favorite thing to use would be my punches. Can't seem to do anything without them!

Wow blog candy; )
I can not live without my fiskars papers cutter.
Thanks for inspiring me in my mails ; )
Love Karina, Denmark.

Amy said...

Oh my! Thanks for the chance to win! I have been wanting to try to make these pens, but I can't find the micro beads! Where do you buy them? The craft tool I can't live without would be my small fiskars paper cutter!!!

Have a blessed day!

I don't think I could live without my ATG - I'm not sure how I went so long without having one.

My favorite tool would be my Carl cutter. I love all of the different blades.

Hi Rochelle, another cool give away, you are such a sweet person. Good question, I can't do without a lot of things, ink pads, stamps, punches, paper cutter, but the one thing I really can't do without is my small paper cutter from Paper Studio, I have a problem cutting small pieces with the big cutter. Have a good day, Christa

Lori said...

What awesome blog candy! Our Michael's (the only craft store I don't have to drive forever to get to) has been out of stock of these micro beads forever!
So my favorite crafting tool...hmmm...I'm definitely a Stamp-a-majig user but I also have to have my paper cutter.

PatsyB said...

Wow!! THIS IS LIKE CHRISTMAS IN MAY!! You are so very generous not only with the blog candy but your creations. Without your inspiration, some of us would have to give up crafting!!

Lauren Y. said...

I love Stamp-a-ma-jig too, but my favorite is Versamark pad, it seems like I always use it for everything : )
Thanks for offering such wonderful blog candy, I have wanted to try to make the beaded pens for a long time.

Brenda said...

Oh what sweet candy! My fave tool is my Cuttlebug...but I also love my Stamp-a-ma-jig!

I do not have a favorite as of yet - I am still learning and playing! Also, it seems to vary with project to project. I have wanted to learn how to do the beaded pen so hope I win a chance. If I don't, is there one of your great tutorials on it? Gathering the supplies is one of the hassles for me though. I love all your creative inspiration!

Doris said...

I'll be celebrating 41 years of marriage (to the same guy!) this weekend, so it would be nice to win something. But even if I don't, I've already found a winner!

Brenda said...

My favorite would be my punches, I use them all the time, and ribbon. Thank you for the chance to win.

Heidi said...

I would have to say my little 6 inch bright green ruler. It goes with me everywhere. I thought I had lost it once & about had a stroke!! Thanks for the give away!! I have wanted to make these beaded pens but have been nervous!!

Sarah said...

Shellie said...

It's so hard to pick just one! Today my favorite would be my punches, but I love it all! It's addicting!!!

Miriam said...

I can't get along without my Cuttlebug. I keep finding more and more uses for it! Thanks for the chance to win the pen kit. What fun that would be to win!

BPressgrove said...

Since I got it for Christmas, I must say I can't live without my ScorPal - love it, love it, love it!

Valarie said...

That is a hard one. I use my Cuttlebug alot so I guess that would be it.

Sheila D said...

Hmmm, I think it would be my Sakura stardust glitter pens. I glitter everything with them. So easy to use and great colors. I especially love the clear.

Anonymous said...

It's impossible to pick just one favorite, but if I have to I'd say it's the cuttlebug embossing folders, even though I use them with a zip-e-mate machine.
Sherry Strack

Denise t said...

favorite tool...hmmmmmm thats hard to narrow down , but I guess I would say my SU punches and love ribbon. Thanks for the awesome blog candy.

documpy said...

Would I be "brown nosing" if I said my favorite item s my computer so I can look up your site, which I do EVERYDAY, to get such awesome ideas???!!!!

Okay, if that is cheating....my favorite tool(s) is (are) punches. I LOVE them all!

Thanks for always sharing!!

Sara Frawley said...

I simply can't live without my bone folder. It's a simple tool, but I am completely lost without it. :)
How exciting... beaded pens... hope I win!

Holly H. said...

I would have to say my bone folder, it makes everything have a finishing touch to it! A very simple yet necessary tool.

lapalika said...

I've always wanted to make a beaded pen...hope I win!

Kim said...

This is just to cool. My "I can't live with out" would be blender pensd. I just love to color with them.

Linda from Georgia said...

Reading through all the comments made me realize I don't have all the #1's mentioned. Good justification! I need those things. The item I keep right at hand is my mini trimmer.

Anonymous said...

I can only pick one thing I can't live without?!! LOL I would say my cuttlebug, I love the cool embossing folders. Congrats on your blog hitting over 200,000!!

Kelly H-W said...

My favorite tool is my Crop-A-Dile, I just love it and use it daily!!

Kelly H-W

Jamie said...

I am a subscriber from Columbiana, AL. I absolutely must have my paper cutter for every project. Next would be my punches and CB folders and dies....

Oh yeah the Crop-a-dile is great, too. I can now set eyelets after everyone is in bed... which is when I am usually able to stamp. I end up having some pretty late nights to get any stamping done.

Dawn Mercedes said...

what is great about this...it's precut! haha. Sign me up!

I couldn't live without my aquapainter and Watercolor crayons. I don't have markers...don't like pastels...but I LOVE my WWC!

JoAnna Goodman said...

I am lovin' all this blog candy, Rochelle!! The one thing I cannot live without is my Fiskars 12" paper trimmer!

You rock!!!

dolls123 said...

I need the tacky tape

otagogirl said...

What awesome candy! You are so generous!
I can only pick one favourite? oooer!
OK, ONE of my faves (a little cheating here!) is my sponges. I love to sponge the edges, and it seems I end up doing that on most things I make. Sponging gives a finished look to me.
I also love the paper piercer, but that just more cheating..:-)

wendy peatross said...

I love these pens. They are my favorite!

Anonymous said...

Teri from Indiana

I looooove making these pens. Thanks for giving this neat stuff away! The pens are so cute and make such great additions to gift sets. Um, let's see, I think right now my Honey Bee nonstick scissors are my favorite crafting supply. Besides that, my favorite punch is the Stampin Up scallop punch. So cute!

beth beaty said...

I'm amazed that you give these things away. Thanks for the chance to win. I just learned about blogs a couple of weeks ago. Now I check yours and a few others all the time!

Anonymous said...

Hi Rochelle, Doris from Onsted, MI again. I guess my favorite tool at the time is probably my light box. I love dry embossing... Just got a bind-it-all, so that may change. Thanks for the inspiration!

Valerie said...

OH MY I really really just was looking up how to make these pens and want all the suplies now..I wanna win i wanna win..your awesome!

Elsa Limas said...

I just LOVE beaded pens!!!
My favorite crafting item is Dazzeling Diamonds. Everything looks better with glitter. Just like you I can't live without my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.

Tangerine Dream said...

What I cannot live without? Hmmmm, I'd have to say my tweezers (how lame is that?!). I can't get anything where I want it without them!

Jennifer said...

I love my SU punches. I have been using them so much lately. I have made a few pens before but this blog candy would be perfect so I could make some more.
Thanks for your wonderful blog.
Love the black background!!

Kathy from Fayetteville NC. My favorite things would be my punches. You can do so many things with them. Punch what they are suppose to be or create flowers, bugs, animals by combining them. Punches can be flat or 3D. Thanks for the wonderful blog candy. Your are so wonderful to offer such wonderful gifts.

Sheila said...

Now let me see. One item that I can't do without. I would have to say my Fiskars trimmer. I'm very dependent upon it.

Your blog is great especially for people like me who are just getting starting. Thanks bunches!

Leslie said...

I have always wanted to try my hand at tis project! Great giveaway!

Alicia TW :) said...

My paper cutter for sure. I also love my punches. :)

Latisha said...

Can you believe I don't have a stamp a majig & never made one of those pens! I know sad lol
I have lots of tools, I collect them I'm a collecter, but its really hard for me to make a card without ribbon, it just doesn't look right to me, so maybe my favorite thing is the red sticky tape to keep my ribbon in place, when I cheat and just tuck in under the edges. Did I mention I'm a hoarder too lol.

Shannon Roberts said...

We all say nice things cause it's true!! I know exactly what you mean about your "friends" !! So of my best friends are my cyber friends!!! As for my tool, I would have to my say bone folder. It helps me in all kinds of ways!! PS I luv your pens!!!!

A said...

I'm going to have to say my copics. Now that I am starting to learn a little about how to use them, I am in love with them and use them almost daily. Or at least every time that I am allowed a few minutes to scrap.

Nancy said...

Hi Rochelle, I just got on board to post because I didn't know how and Margaret showed me! So that's why you are getting so many posts from me today.

My favorite crafting item...now that's difficult. *thinking* *thinking*....*thinking, but nuttin's happening*

Well I think the thing I use most is the double sided sticky tape. Because I've found that the mono just doesn't hold my work together and after putting so much time into my cards, having them fall apart after a while is just UNACCEPTABLE!!

This is so much fun!

Nancy in OC

Michelle said...

OOOOh, my girlfriend just showed me how to embellish these pens and we made some as favors for our Spring Retreat. We didn't use the beads, but she described the process to me and I really, really want to try, so I really really hope I win and get to do try this out!

julkes said...

I love how these pens look. please pick me

Paula said...

I love my ATG gun. It is fast, strong, and you don't have to refill it often. Thanks for the chance to win these cool beaded pen supplies.

Infarrantly Creative said...

I have been wanting to try those pens

stacey R said...

Love, love, love your stuff!!
You are one talented lady!

stacey r said...

Oops, forgot to say the paper piercer is my favorite crafting item!

Nancy said...

Stamp-a-ma-jig!

-Nancy Ann

Alex said...

OMword, stuff to make beaded pens, that is so cool, okay, I think the thing I could not live without would have to be my pink scissors, my pritt stick and my xcut guillotine!!! lol - I adore my stamp-a-ma-jig but don't use it everytime I stamp, if you were to see my stamping station you would know why!!!! lol

Robyn said...

My favorite tools right now are my letter diecuts. No more alphabet stickers that just don't match. Thanks for the chance to win some awesome blog candy. I never have been able to get the pens to work.
