A couple of months ago, representatives from Elmer's contacted me through email and asked if I would like to participate in the Elmer's Crafting Challenge. I quickly agreed because their crafting supplies rock and the prize is a meaningful one!
Here is what arrived. And this is only a small sampling!
Here is the challenge that was issued to me:
Use the new Elmer's CraftBond and X-ACTO crafting products within this kit to create a craft that matches the theme of your blog by October 8. It can be anything from a family-oriented scrapbooking page layout to a trendy piece of home decor (if you need a little inspiration picking a project, just let us know)! Elmer's will make a $1,000 donation on behalf of the winning blogger to the national educational-based charity of her choice! Don't forget to share your craft with your readers and have fun giving away the three Elmer's prize packages we promised. Good luck!
I decided to make a layout that focuses on all the ways my family plays, creates and explores. That is what scrapbooking is for me... Here is my project!
To complete this layout, I used the very cool circle cutter from Elmers...think of it as a compass circle cutter but even better! I love to add circles so this tool is perfect! I am so in love with the cutting board they sent...it is a little bigger than 12X12 so you can fit your whole project on it. The vibrant pink helps me to line things up...this mat will get used every day! I incorporated their glue dots, foam tape and glitter pens on this layout as well. See how I colored the cardboard in...I will be using these pens a ton! Everything is made with the scrapbooker in mind!
I am so honored to participate in this challenge! If I am chosen to be the lucky winner, I would ask that the donation be given to the Autism Society of America. I am a special education teacher and have worked with many students with autistim over the years. My students are gifted, unique, amazing kids who have taught me so much! It is a cause that is near and dear to my heart!
