75 Follower Giveaway: Cricut Markers

I hit 75 Followers this week and I am super excited. I know most people celebrate at 100, but my Mother bought me a set of Cricut makers and was super excited about them. She did not know I had so many of them already. I told her I would use them as the first giveaway on my blog and let her pick the number of  followers I needed to get to before doing the giveaway. She picked the number 75 and here we are!!
I use Cricut makers for a lot of things: adding titles, making coloring pages for my daughter, and putting names on tags. I find that they are really helpful when I want the outline of the shape only as the markers draw where the blade would normally cut. I made this sign for my daughter's door. I switched out the markers to add more color and show you what you can do.

I have a set of the brown and black Cricut Markers that are up for grabs in my first giveaway. Want to win these? Here is how...
1. Leave me a comment telling me what you use Cricut Markers for or would like to try with them.
2. Check back on Thursday April 7 to see who wins the fun set of markers.
3. I will select the winner using a random number generator.
4. It would be nice if you became a follower if your are not already, but that is not needed to win!


  1. I would use them to draw tinkerbell

  2. Nice giveaway. Love the Alice in Wonderland stuff.

  3. You did a great job with the Alice in Wonderland Characters. I would love to have the markes to use for lettering on some scrabook lay outs.

  8. Congrats on your 75th follower!!! Pretty cool. I am still new to my Cricut Expression so I havent tried them yet. But I am looking at making a banner for my daughters first visit back home since she left for college. Since she loves butterflies, that will be my first attempt in the Home Accents Cartridge.
    I am a new follower.

  10. ooooohhhh, you're already at 98 followers!! YAY for you!! :) Congrats!!

    I love the markers for adding a color edge to whatever I'm cutting -- It's taken some practice, but I'm finally able to get the blade to cut along the marker lines, giving me a nice edge to my cuts!! Saves me LOTS of time when I don't want to individually ink every cut!!

    Thanks for the chance to WIN (the black/brown markers are the ones I have to replace the MOST!!)...
