Scrap'n Easel review and GIVEAWAY


I get to do something totally cool today!  I get to give away a wicked cool Scrap'n Easel.  I have been playing with mine for the last couple of weeks and I totally love it.


Scrap'n Easel is a free standing 12x24 magnetic easel.  It comes with the 12x12 clear removable grids, magnetic ruler, and lots of really strong magnets.  Like my happy face?   It also comes with industrial strengh velcro that keeps the Scrap'n Easel closed and the tab out of sight when it's open.  It is very strong and sturdy so you don't have to worry about it falling over. 

When it's closed it is quite thin, so storage is no big deal.  For me, this is important because I really don't have anymore room for big items.


You can craft on the easel laying down, but I found I enjoyed scrapping with it while it was standing up.  It was nice not to have to lean over my desk constantly.  My neck really gets sore after a couple hours  bending over my table constantly.

When I scrapbook, the very last thing I do is add the embellishments, photos, etc. to the paper.  I like to move stuff around until I think it looks the way I want it too.  This is where the magnets come in.  I had been working on a kit and wasn't too sure about the 2nd page.  I wanted to add something more to it.  I decided to add a sun I cut from my Expression and some flowers.  I put the magnetic ruler along the top to see what size sun I needed.  I also layered a couple of flowers and put in a couple of places until I liked where they were.


 I also did not adhere the flowers together.  The magnet is holding the two of them together and to the Scrap'n Easel.  


The pages are kept in place by clear plastic corners so when you are done, you can use the Scrap'n Easel to show off you work.  This is so much better than the way I was doing it, which was to throw it on the kitchen counter for Chris to see.  Pretty awesome, right?


Now for the fun part.  Marlo, over at Scrap'n Easel, is going to send a Scrap'n Easel for one lucky person.  Whoo Hoo!  I was so incredibly happy when she told me this because there was no way I was going to part with mine :)    The Scrap'n Easel retail price is $79.99.

(If you can't wait, you can buy the Scrap'N Easel here or on one of the banners along my right sidebar.  Because the demand for these is high, there can be two week wait for shipping.)

This giveaway is open to the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, United Kingdom and Ireland.

How can you win this?

You must be a follower of Scrap'n Totes blog and leave a comment in this blog.

For additional entries to win:

1.  "Like" Scrap'n Tote on Facebook and let them know Denise sent you. (one entry)
2.   Follow my blog here.  (one entry)
3.  Blog or post about this contest on your sidebar.  (2 entries for this)

May sure you leave a comment below stating which you have done.

I will post the winner's name May 3rd.  The winner will have one week to contact me with their information.

Have a great day,

Denise
