Big Blog Tart up for grabs!!!!

BUT i am going to make you work for it!!! i know what a meanie!! SOOO what's in it for you? how's this fro grand prize:
AND FOUR runners up:
and now for the work. i am considering some changes to my blog and want some input:
Do you like the tutorials?
Would you be interested in a kit (at 15% off) that includes items needed for that month's tutorials?
Do you want to get more LOs done but still participate in your regular card challenges?
i have several challenges i ALWAYS participate in every week. BUT i have way too many cards. so I am thinking of incorporating my challenges into LOs instead. I'd love it if people would join me! If you don't have regular card challenges then you can just join in on the ones i use. these will be sketch challenges as well as colors, techniques or themes.
WOULD THIS be something you would be interested in participating in??

so answer these questions in a comment on this post (i want to see the nos as well as the yeses) and you will be entered into a random drawing for the prize above!

thanks so much!!

  1. Do you like the tutorials?

    Yes, I love the tutorials! They are great and have inspired me to try several new techniques. I think they could be improved by adding video tutorials too (maybe even for a fee!)

    Would you be interested in a kit (at 15% off) that includes items needed for that month's tutorials?

    I have so much in the way of scrapbooking supplies that I'm trying not to buy anything else (easier said than done) so I probably would not be interested in that.

    Do you want to get more LOs done but still participate in your regular card challenges? No, I don't really make cards too much.

    WOULD THIS be something you would be interested in participating in??
    No, sorry, I'm working on several specific, topical scrapbooks now so I don' think I'd be interested in that.

  2. Woo Hoo, I'm the first to comment on this post.
    Would you be interested in a kit (at 15% off) that includes items needed for that month's tutorials?
    Yes, yes and yes! Fantastic idea! I am new to card making and this would be an excellent way to make cards for a beginner like me.
    If you go to my blog, you will see that I need all the help I can get!

  3. Wow, how can I be first? I am never first. You asked a lot of questions, so I hope I can remember them all. I love tutorials. Even if it has been done a thousand times, different people do things differently and I like to see that. As for kits, I like kits, especially if well put together with great embellishments, but I usually don't buy them for the kit purpose -- I will usually find papers and stuff that I really like in a kit and then use the stuff for whatever I want to make. I don't buy them often. As for LO, I am a cardmaker, so prefer cards. But, I am trying to think about scrapbooking. So if a layout could be used for both, then that would be okay. I think I answered everything. Thanks for the opportunity at blog tart!

  4. Well trying again first one said there was a error. Grrrr!
    Yes, on the tutorials, love them.
    The discount would be great for many but for me right now not in the cards, gas prices are killing us.
    Love the idea of the layouts, techniques and color challenges.

  5. I love, love, love the tutorials! I am a very visual learning so I get the most out of seeing that is being done and you do a very good job with your tutorials.

    I am into a "use what you have" place so I am really trying not to buy much right now. (And to be truthful I have quite a bit right now.)

    I find myself more attracted to card sketches rather than LO. In fact I bookmark card sketches in my reader, but not any LO.

    It is really sweet of you to offer up such an incredible blog tart! Fantastic!

  6. Yes I would like the tutorials to continue. I probably would not be interested in the kits but I know many people are. I like to adapt with the equipment I have.

    I do scapbook but I don`t plam a layout so LO don`t interest me.
    I love challenges so that would be supper.
    Thanks for a change at the blog tart...big enough to be called blog pie or cake I think.
    thanks

  7. I like the tutorials. Keep up the good work.
    Not a kit type of person myself but know many who like them.
    I am fairly new to cardmaking so I never have enough cards. This may change with time.
    Right now I don't have a lot of time for challenges. When I do have time I like sketch challenges.

  8. Do you like the tutorials?

    Oh yes I LOVE them! You always help me to get new ideas!


    Would you be interested in a kit (at 15% off) that includes items needed for that month's tutorials?

    Possibly -depending on how much is included - maybe multi-layer kits with different price points - or build your own kits so you only have to get those items you don't already have in your stash.

    Do you want to get more LOs done but still participate in your regular card challenges?

    I am more of a card maker so I would probably stick to card challenges.

    WOULD THIS be something you would be interested in participating in??

    Not in the layout challenges - but yes to the card challenges.

  9. I would love to see more tutorials and also getting more layouts done would be great and if you can challenge me to do them even better. Thanks for the chance to win awesome blog candy!

  10. I like the tutorials and depending on what the kits had I would possibly be interested in the kits. Hard to say without knowing what is in them.

    I dont do card challenges, I like to look at what other people do to help me get an idea.

    I belong to a sketch club at a local scrapbook store and i make time time get LO done when I am at the club. I dont scrapbook much at home too many distractions.

    I probably would not participate in those

  11. I love the tutorials. Please keep them coming. I don't care if they are cards or LOs. ideas can be transferred from LO to canrd and back. As for the challenges, I haven't participated but hope to have more time during the winter months.

  12. Yes, I do love the tutorials!!They include great, descriptive photos to help me "get it". I do like the idea of a kit, although I would probably just use it however I want. I've never participated in any challenges, but this is something I would like to start doing. So yes, I would like to see some LO challenges. And thanks for the opportunity to win such great blog tart!

  13. I really like the tutorials. You do so many I often wonder how you have the time. I do enjoying getting them in my email everyday as a special treat.
    I would only be interested in a kit some of the time..I like to use as much of my current supplies as possible. Making lo's is my number one goal in scrapbooking. I like cards but I probably make lo's 80% of the time and cards 20% of the time.

    Thank-you!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Tutorials?! They're my fave! I love blogs with great video tutorials or with good pictures and explanations. I know the hard work put into them and really appreciate them!
    I'd be interested if the kits have items that I'd really need -- I would usually improvise with what I have.
    As for card challenges, I do them when I have the time. Incorporating challenges with LOs sounds great. I would participate if I have the time :) Thank you for the chance!

  15. Do you like the tutorials? I LOVE the tutorials. Not all of them are ones that I would do...but I love getting new ideas.
    Would you be interested in a kit (at 15% off) that includes items needed for that month's tutorials? If the kit was reasonably priced and it was something that I would be into, yes.
    Do you want to get more LOs done but still participate in your regular card challenges? I really do need to get layouts done at this point but love cards too so I'd like to see a mix of both. But I don't have a ton of time to scrap right now so I tend to file ideas for use later!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love the tutorials...I save them into a file so I can use them now or later-depending on time and idea.

    I would be interested in a kit-but right now, I'm trying to use a huge backlog and stash, so it might be a while before I purchased.

    I've always been a scrapper, but I've started with cards, as a way to use up the scraps. I'm challenging myself to use my scraps up with each page I finish--and it's been exciting-so sketches and ideas that help with that are great!

    I would like to participate in both layout and card challenges-which helps me with using up my stash and scraps.

  17. Tutorials - yes love them, keep them coming

    Kits - not interested

    LO's - don't really scrapbook a lot

    Challenges - card challenges are always fun and I have several I watch and participate when I can.

  18. I love your tutorials. Even though I have been stamping for quite a while, I still learn new things from you or am reminded of techniques that I have forgotten. I also love the different card challenges you share. They inspire me in my work.

    Since I have so much that I am trying to use right now, I would not be interested in the kits, but I think it is a great idea that others would want.

    Right now I have quite a few swaps that I participate in that keep me very busy so I probably would not want to do anything more until summer, when I am off work.

    Thanks for all you do and share with us.

  19. 1. The tutorials are great! I really enjoy getting a step-by-step instruction to some of the projects. I can imagine the beginners apreciate it a lot too.
    2. I have way too much stuff already, but if it's a project I really want to try, then yes.
    3. I have slowed down in making cards and would like to make more again. Making LO is something I think I want to do, but I actaually don't enjoy it as much as stamping. I also think there are too many scrapbook challenges and not enough for cardmakers. Besides-I work so slowly and it takes a long time before I get satisfied so if I manage to make a cardchallenge that would be amazing, lol.

  20. Do you like the tutorials?
    -Yes! I love them! I read every one of them, but don't always comment.

    Would you be interested in a kit (at 15% off) that includes items needed for that month's tutorials?
    -Yes, this is a great idea.

    Do you want to get more LOs done but still participate in your regular card challenges?
    - yes, I have too many cards and not enough friends! HA!

    WOULD THIS be something you would be interested in participating in??
    - Yes I love challenges and sketches

  21. Do you like the tutorials? Your tutorials are terrific!

    Would you be interested in a kit (at 15% off) that includes items needed for that month's tutorials? I like to pick and choose my stuff so I'm not usually interested in kits, although I know many who are.

    Do you want to get more LOs done but still participate in your regular card challenges? Yes, yes, yes!!!

    Would you be interested in LO challenges? Yes!

  22. The tutorials are great and to answer the 2nd question, yes it would be fantastic to have all the goodies on hand to be able to do the tutorials when they are posted. So yes I would be interested in the kits. As a suggestion though, perhaps you could put something out the month before so that people could decide if they need to purchase that kit. Perhaps not giveaway what the Tut is, but say, ok, these are all the goodies you will need for this month's tutorial...Hope I am making sense.
    I would like to get both cards and LO's done. So whichever way you go, I'll be there, reading away!
    Yes, I would be interested. Of course cost is the bottom line with me as I live in Australia, however I already know how competitive your prices are and how great you are with your service and postage costs.

    Cheers

  23. Love the tutorials
    I find your site one of the most creative and interesting blogs around. You are very very talented.

    I absolutely would love the kits since I do not do many cards yet and would love to learn

    I also think some things you do apply to scrapbooking

    I am primarily a scrapbooker

  24. I love the tutorials!!! Please keep them coming.

    I might be interested in a kit at 15% off... It would really depend on the kit specifics since I have too many supplies already.

    I dont normally do any challenges so I really do not think I would be interested in them.

    Thanks for the great tutorials & inspiration & opportunity for this nice blog candy!!!

  25. Do you like the tutorials?

    I love seeing visual step-by-step instructions, so absolutely yes!!

    Would you be interested in a kit (at 15% off) that includes items needed for that month's tutorials?

    It would definitely depend on the kit contents and how much they appealed to me. But I am a kit lover in general!

    Do you want to get more LOs done but still participate in your regular card challenges? WOULD THIS be something you would be interested in participating in??

    Hmm...not sure but I'd like to hear more about it!

  26. I love your tutorials i have learnt quite a bit from them so i would you to keep them going !!

    As for the kits it wou;ld really depend on whats in them. i do buy occasional kits but in all honesty i have tons and tons of supplies lol !!

    Iwould love to get more layouts done i have really lapsed with my scrapbooking so this winter i really want to get back into it ! so yes i would be interested !!

    I hope i helped to answer all your questions !! Thankyou so much for the chance to win your awesome blog candy !!

  27. I love your tutorials! But your techniques usually look too advanced for me, and I don't own or trust myself with some of the "messy" supplies.
    I'd have to see the kits before I decide, but I do need to curb my spending and start using what I have. And like with the studio g sets, I prfer to pick and choose which items I want rather than purchase the complete set.
    I don't participate in any card challenges, but I do enjoy trying new cards. My LO's have their own style - I don't experiment much with them.
    What an amazing and generous blog tart - thank you!

  28. Do you like the tutorials?
    OF COURSE! Your tuts are very detailed.

    Would you be interested in a kit (at 15% off) that includes items needed for that month's tutorials?
    No, I don't buy online very often unless I have free shipping.

    Do you want to get more LOs done but still participate in your regular card challenges?
    I have not ever completed in online challenges except for my one group.

    Thank you so much for the opportunity to win some blog candy!
    Such great stuff, Marti!!

  29. I love tutorials. I don't think that I am very imaginative so I really like seeing the step by step progress. I might be interested in kits if they had things that I could use alot (not just for the one project).

  30. Do you like the tutorials?

    They are great. I get such good ideas and tips from them.

    Would you be interested in a kit (at 15% off) that includes items needed for that month's tutorilas?

    Yes, I would be. I love kits that make it easy to do a fast scrapbbok page.

    Do you want to get more LOs done but still participate in your regular card challenges?

    Yes. Your cards are so beautiful
    and creative

    I love your web site and blog. Keep up the goodwork

  31. Do you like the tutorials?

    Love the tutorials. They always give me great ideas.

    Would you be interested in a kit (at 15% off) that includes items needed for that month's tutorials?

    Maybe sometimes, but othertimes I already have the supplies, so I wouldn't want to have to order them every month.

    Do you want to get more LOs done but still participate in your regular card challenges?

    I don't make any scrapbooks.

    WOULD THIS be something you would be interested in participating in??

    Maybe. I don't have much time, but I'm done with all my swaps & such so this could be the one thing I do.

  32. Love your tutorials so don't stop.

    Would be interested in a kit.

    Not into participating in making
    or publishing a card or layout.
    People would laugh me off your Blog.

    I just enjoy watching you. You are
    so cute and have so much energy.

    Would love to see the inches stamps
    I really would like to buy that.

    Would you be interested in a kit (at 15% off) that includes items needed for that month's tutorials?
    I have soooooo much stuff now. Not sure I would want to buy something to do a challenege. Maybe the challenge could be to use some of my stash.

    Do you want to get more LOs done but still participate in your regular card challenges?
    Yes I prefer LOs to cards.

    i have several challenges i ALWAYS participate in every week. BUT i have way too many cards. so I am thinking of incorporating my challenges into LOs instead. I'd love it if people would join me!

    Sounds great. I do a few LO challenges but not nearly enough.

  34. Yes, I love your tutorials. Photos are of excellent quality. Videos would also be a nice addition.

    Kits for items at 15% off.....I would not be interested as I too have way too many supplies now and I look at tutorials as a means of how to use what I have. The buying crunch is in effect at our household too.

    I do not participate in any card challenges, and I make very few SB layouts. I hope that is what you were asking about. I have started making cards for sale, so I always appreciate seeing your beautiful work and new ideas. Thanks for asking. Linda Slattery

  36. Do you like the tutorials?

    Yes I love the tutorials and have printed them all out for sometime when I can actually sit down and make something.

    Would you be interested in a kit (at 15% off) that includes items needed for that month's tutorials?

    Not at this time. I am in the process of buying a house, but this may be something I would do in the near future.

    Do you want to get more LOs done but still participate in your regular card challenges?

    I tend to focus on layouts more than I do cards anyway, so YES!

  37. Do you like the tutorials?

    Yes I do and surf for them often. Especially cutting edge and new techniques.

    Would you be interested in a kit (at 15% off) that includes items needed for that month's tutorials?

    I am a supply collector, professional shopper etc. but if the kit had items I did not have them yes I would buy it.

    Do you want to get more LOs done but still participate in your regular card challenges?

    I have swapped before but I was not happy with the items I received back. It was not that I didn't care for the item itself rather the quality of the supplies used and the craftsmanship. So unless there were strict guidelines and well seasoned swappers then no I would not participate.

    WOULD THIS be something you would be interested in participating in??

    I do use card fronts on my layouts so yes I would do this I just love multitasking!

  38. Tutorials are great and I love CARD challenges!!! I have not purchased a kit before but would be interested if I liked it enough!! Thanks for offering the blog tart!!

  39. I love tutorials. Even if it is something I don't plan to do, I love to see how things are put together. I might be interested in a kit, but honestly, I have to use up some of my supplies before getting more. I don't do challenges, but I do enjoy seeing what other people do. I'm getting a website planned and don't really have time right now for challenges. I do enjoy your site, however. Thanks for sharing.

    I absolutely love them! I learn heaps through this, so please keep them coming!

    Would you be interested in a kit (at 15% off) that includes items needed for that month's tutorials?

    I don't really like kits. I prefer to choose my own stuff, there will always be something in a kit I don't like and I'm not an experimenter with new stuff.

    Do you want to get more LOs done but still participate in your regular card challenges?

    I have this cardmaking periods and for weeks I only make cards, most of them for challenges. Now I'm into a scrapbooking period and I have most inspiration for creating layouts. I'm pretty happy with this system.

    WOULD THIS be something you would be interested in participating in??

    I don't think so, I don't really use challenges for my scrapbooking.

    -no, it seems i never have enough hours in the day and wouldn't have time for LO's. I need quick projects like cards, altered objects, techniques etc

    an idea for all the extra cards you might have...send some to soldiers overseas, donate them to a hospital for patients to use, make them into theme packs and sell on the site, make them into a small set of like 4 or 5 and tie a riboon on them and use them as blog candy...need more ideas email me! I am sure i can think of something! LOL!

    Hope this helps!!

  44. Ok, here are my answers. Yes, I love tutorials. I know they take lots of time, but they are fantastic!

    I probably wouldn't be interested in a kit, cuz I have loads of stuff, but it would really depend on the kit itself.

    I would definitely love to get more LO challenges. I was a scrapbooker before I became a stamper and now I make mostly cards, but I would love to get
    more scrapbooking done.

    Hope I didn't skip any. Thanks again for all you do for us.
