The eCraft - A Cut Above |
First Machine To Cut Without A Mat
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:

Halloween Candle Project Idea|
Personalize It With Vinyl
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!
Materials 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 Month |
Charity of the Month
Aside from non-melanoma skin cancer, breast cancer is the 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.
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

|Happy Sweetest Day|
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!Trying to give someone a hint on a product that you want from our website?
