I can’t begin this recap without offering our SNAPalicious SNAP! Conference sponsor Spellbinders for joining us as the sponsor for today’s #SNAPit Twitter chat. It was so much fun discussing Easter crafting with a company who knows how to get their craft on. I loved getting tips and tricks from some of the best in the business.
I am sure you are as excited as we are that Amy from Ameroonie Designs is our Spellbinders Grand Calibur Machine winner. I am sure she will put the machine to great use over many holidays to come. Who am I kidding? The machine is so cool who needs to wait for a holiday???
Each week we try to focus on a fun and engaging topic in our #SNAPit Twitter chats. One that will spark the creativity in our amazing community and allow us a chance to share, learn, and of course have a little fun. Thanks to each and every one of you our numbers each week continue to amaze me. The buzz our, short 45 minute, chat creates is truly awesome. You should all pat yourself on the back for being a part of today’s stats: (reporting the last 24 hours)
Our #SNAPit Twitter chat was a “hopping” good time today. I was pleased to see so many people connected with our questions and had a lot to share. It is always wonderful to take a glimpse inside your friend’s Easter traditions and the crafts they enjoy with their family. I felt as if I was sitting at your craft table with you. If you missed today’s chat, or just need a little reminder, pull up a chair to our virtual craft room for a little peek:
Q1-What are some of your favorite Easter traditions/crafts you hope to pass down to your kids?
@redcherries22- Dying eggs, doing an egg hunt and having food on Easter Sunday that is similar to Thanksgiving foods. getting a new outfit to wear #SNAPIt
@cleverpirate- Q1) I think egg dying is one of our favs, kids get real creative. Of course the egg hunt and church after.. #SNAPIt
Q2-Die templates are great to use in Easter crafts. What type of media have you cut with die templates? What have you made?
@LLLsummer- Q2 I don’t have any of those, but can’t wait to hear about ideas #SNAPIt
@spellbinders- A2: Spellbinders dies cut a variety of media! Felt, fabric, faux leather, foam, balsa wood… I could go on and on #SNAPit
Q3-What are some unusual techniques you’ve used with die templates? We love reverse stenciling and letterpress!
@laraellieg- Letterpress makes my heart go pitty-pat. Particularly white on white. It’s so subtle. It makes me feel classy @Spellbinders #SNAPit
@amerooniedesign- A3- I’ve used them to create reverse appliques for pillows #SNAPit
Q4-With all these new ideas what are some last minute crafts and traditions you hope to complete before Easter?
@sunnee63- Q4: GOT TO try the balsa wood cutting. ought to be WAY cheaper than buying precut chipboard! #SNAPit
@thesewingloft- A4- where to start… so many fun ideas- so little time #SNAPIt
#SNAPit Next Week
You don’t want to miss our #SNAPit Twitter chat next week, Thursday, April 12th, at 10:30 am (MT)… Especially if you are going to be attending a conference this year. We are delving into the world of all things conference goers should know but were afraid to ask. See you then!
