The eCraft - A Cut Above Ecraft
First Machine To Cut Without A Mat Ecraft Machines

The first and only personal electronic cutter that allows you to cut without a mat! This ultra lightweight super unique piece of crafting excellence was brought to us by Craftwell. The reviews I've seen on this product all point to "awesome" in the customer support and functionality departments. It seems to have everything we crafters want in a cutter (quiet, fast, and not having to swap the blade for the pen) and best of all, NO MAT! It takes the paper in like a printer, with a roll or with sheets.  What more do we need to say.. and it's CUTE!

Here are some of the features:
  • 3 ways to feed paper: Manual, Paper Tray and Roller (no more messy cutting mats)
  • Handles materials up to 12" wide by ANY length
  • Draws and cuts without changing from a blade to a pen
  • 2.8" backlit LCD display for easy navigation and image selection
  • Works off of easy-to-store SD image cards with hundreds of shapes to choose from
  • No computer required, but great design software with additional features included
  • Adjustable pressure settings for kiss-cutting (vinyl) and multi-cutting (thicker materials)
  • Clear Cut Indicator lights up when the blade cuts all the way through your material
  • Pause button allows you to adjust the pressure setting mid-cut (less mistakes = less paper wasted)
  • Rechargeable Battery available for on-the-go use (lasts for hours)

Halloween Candle Project Ideaproject
Personalize It With Vinyl
Last month I wrote about some of the great projects you can do with our new adhesive vinyl. It inspired me to make a project geared at one of my personal hobbies, candling. I had so much fun doing this project that I had to write about it!

Halloween CandleMaterials you need:

1. Any Cricut Machine
2. Happy Hauntings Cartridge
3. Black Adhesive Vinyl
4. Any candle holder
5. One sheet of cardstock for tags
6. Some ribbon of your choice

Take a measurement of the available space on the front or top of the candle, then pick your image from the Cricut menu. For this one, I chose the Bat(<bat>) and the Phrase Spooky. I made the Spooky 3 inches and the bat was 2 1/2 inches.

Crafting Tip of the day: Be careful when cutting very small images with the vinyl; it will start to pull and tear, and won't look nice when it's transferred.

The last cut I made was the tombstone tag. This was 11/2 inches tall, and the hole was just perfect for feeding the ribbon through. I used Orange paper, but you can use any color.  

To assemble, simply stick the vinyl to the candle, tie the tag to the candle with the ribbon of your choice, and you're done!  What a great gift idea!

October Is Breast Cancer Awareness MonthCharity
Charity of the Month 

Aside from non-melanoma skin cancer, breast cancer is
Pink Ribbonthe most common form of cancer in women. Breast cancer is the number one cause of cancer death in Hispanic women. It is the second most common cause of cancer death in white, black, Asian/Pacific Islander, and American Indian/Alaska Native women.

Early detection is key to survival for many women, and spreading awareness saves lives. That is why
Craft-e-Corner has chosen the National Breast Cancer Foundation as the recipient of our donation this month. This is in addition to a donation to a scrapbooking retreat raising funds for the "Feel your Boobies" campaign. Through our donations, we hope to give women a chance at early detection, therefore saving lives.

Some of our very own employees have personal connections with people who have faced Breast cancer. Lets fight this battle together!

Some great fund-raising ideas are available online this month. Some of our 'faves' include "Scrap for Survival" and Scrapbooking retreats, as well as Cards for a Cause. This October, THINK PINK! See where it takes you.....

Happy Sweetest DaySweetest
October 16, 2010

Have you heard of Sweetest Day? Those of us in the Great Lakes states are most likely to celebrate it. However, it is gradually catching on throughout the U.S. It's a holiday that was founded in Cleveland, Ohio back in 1922 by a local candy company employee. It's meant to celebrate all the people who make your life special and traditionally involves the same types of gifts as Valentine's Day like candy, flowers, and cards!

In 2010, Sweetest Day will be celebrated on October 16. Remember to celebrate the holiday and touch the life of someone special to you!
