Well now our winner has her prize and has had a chance to go through it all and check it out, I can reveal the contents. Our lucky winner was Tee Hall from The Altered Paper, you can check out her post about her prize here.
Now those of you that were following the spotlight know that I had requested a few specific items to be included and that the box was the prize for the Amy Chomas Spotlight. I matched the spotlight and prize sponsor for a reason, the Amy Chomas Adapters mean… you can use these pens on your Cricut Explore etc …and one of these items I absolutely LOVE using on my Cricut.
ok so… let’s have a quick look see what Tee had in her box…

and now for the fun part… I have most.. but not all of these products myself. For those of you who missed out on previous posts, I am going to add in some links to some past posts. If you want to see more of the product from Craftingability.com (ImageAbility) and projects made with them ..just do a search on the blog for “Zig” or “craftingability”.
This is where I get those Zig Kurecolor markers I love so much, you may have seen I recently had a giveaway for the skintone pack and where I will be getting a set of Zig Clean Colors from soon I hope 🙂 It’s also where I bought my Gansai Tambi watercolors & Wink of Stella/Luna pens.
One of my favorites has to be the embossing pens. LOVE LOVE LOVE these pens and they work fabulously for writing and drawing in your machines using the Chomas Marker Adapter.

..and then we have the slate…. I LOVE this slate, but let’s face it.. my handwriting sucks and you can’t run this through the Cricut even with a fab adapter lol. But there are so many ways to use this slate, it’s gorgeous…. you just have to think outside the box. Stencils, transfer paper, stamping …or you can be like me and go totally in the other direction. I love to do 3D decoupage layered images…. so my first project with this slate was this one.

And then of course we have the Magnetic”tails” as Steve likes to refer to them. This was an extra item I asked to have included, it’s just a sample pack, end of rolls.. 2nds etc.
Imageability make a lot of Magnetic sheet products for commercial and personal use including the calendar which was included in the prize box. Now this means there are end of roll pieces that aren’t big enough to use for that..BUT….. it’s perfect for crafters.
Steve’s idea of end of roll “scraps” or “tails” make me laugh… and his idea of seconds…even more so. I have bought retail products with more defects lol. Bless his heart but you can’t fault them for their Quality Control.
I have been trying to convince him to sell his “tail” oooo er missus !! naughty girls… I mean his magnetic tails… in a crafters grab bag of some sort. They are perfect for crafters who like to do magnets, or someone needing a way to store and display their metal dies.
If you are interested in a grab bag, leave a comment and I’ll pass them along so he can see if there is enough interest to make it worth them packaging these up and working out a deal for Crafting Circle readers to get their hands on one.. When Steve says tails and seconds… We’re talking minimum of 6×6 .. right the way up to 24x24inches. Don’t get too excited ..the bigger pieces are not as common, but there would probably be a fair selection of sizes in a grab bag.
By his definition –
“Seconds, they have a scratch or bump on them. Even something you can only see with a magnifying glass is a second. I would say seconds are better than tails.”
I can honestly say his seconds don’t look like seconds to me … and even the tails… if you are using them for projects and it’s going to be covered with a design or used for die storage…. no brainer. I’ll take all the seconds and tails in a heartbeat… I have loads of fun projects they are great for.
It cuts like a dream on machines, die cutters like the Big Shot and by hand or with a paper trimmer. Check out some of the projects I have made with… his “tails”

Ziggyboard…. how I love you soooo
You may or may not remember one of the very first items I got from CraftingAbility was the Memory System Collection, that set contains a mix of pens and I love it. This is what prompted me to request the white chalk writer pen seen in the prize package. My collection had a selection of those chalk pens with various tips .. but they can also be purchased separately, or in sets with specific tips. I have my eye on the writer top set. Another great pen to use in my Cricut with the adapter. You can see them in action on the Collection review, see post link below.
