    I grow up making cards for every occasion. This would mean a great deal to me as I am getting into making cards with my children (now 5 and 3 years old). Thank you for the chance to win!

  9. Robin Johnson says

    I have made lots of cards. I am teaching my grand daughter the art of all things crafty. She is 4 years old and really loves to make cards with stick on foam shapes….

  10. says

    I made a quilted potholder case with a homemade card for my Mom
    Which she still has even though I’ve come a long way since I was 11
    And have made her several things since then. I’ve wanted this for a long time
    I would get a lot of use out of it. Thanks for the chance!

  11. Bonnie says

    I have never made a handmade card but I have seen some that I would love to make. I’m not to crafty yet but I would love to start and have been getting some eBooks so I can start doing some of the things that I’ve always wanted to do. Do to a disability, I now have some time to do them. Winning this would be a wonderful addition to the start of my crafting corner. Thanks for the opportunity.

  12. KAREN BAILEY says

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! I LOVE to make cards and use all of the gadgets I can get my hands on!! I have holiday, birthday, get well and sympathy cards that I have made and can use at a moments notice…I also make cards that are created with that special person in mind!! To win this machine would be AWESOME!!!

  13. says

    I just found your web site. I love this! There is nothing like receiving a card from someone you love. They are a way to keep in touch, and express your feelings, and catch up with dear friends. This machine would be GREAT!!!!! Thank You!

  14. Lisa says

    I love making handmade cards. Being able to personalize a card to an individual is so much fun.

  15. Linda says

    I have made several handmade cards. Growing up in my family, it was an honor to make and receive cards that were specially made by hand. My father used to blow us away by buying thick cardstock and painting the cards as well. My grandmother started this tradition and I am sorry to say I have not had the time to keep it up for my own kids.

  16. says

    I have made a few handmade cards before. But not with this product. A few times I used the Cricut, but I mainly use stickers and paper cutouts. This would be fun! My sister also loves cardmaking and scrapbooking, we would both get a lot of use out of this!

  17. Cathy Price says

    I have never made a card before. My boss just got me the Cricut so I can’t wait to get started on some project. I would like this machine to work with my Cricut.

  18. Sandi P says

    I’ve made handmade cards, but always the hard way, cutting and trimming by hand. This looks not only easier, but a lot more versatile.

  19. Tabbyeire says

    Have made lots of cards, buys lots of bits and recycle all sorts of things too. I never make two exactly the same. Have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome now so the cutting out is harder so would love to win this. Toes crossed (easier than the fingers)

  20. K.T. says

    What a thrill it would be to win this incredible machine. Have wanted one for a while now. Maybe I will be lucky enough to win it . Yeah.

  21. Sherri says

    Yes!! I’ve made handmade cards. They are fun to make and to give to someone. They love it it.

  22. Kym says

    I haven’t bought a card for about 10 years…I even make all my own Christmas cards…its also a good idea to have a stash of cards at home for when you need one in a hurry…

  23. Jennifer B says

    I do a little bit of everything. This is something that would help out tremendously. I could help my kids make different projects as well!

  24. LaVette Cruz says

    Only when I was little would love to try how it is done now have seen them but never have tried

  25. Linda says

    I’ve never made greeting cards and with the price they charge today……… I could save alot of money and each card would be personal and exactly how I feel. Please let me win this!!!!!!!

  26. Allison R says

    Yes!! I love hand making cards!! It’s so much fun and saves a lot of money. Plus handmade cards are more special than store bought cards. The Sizzix Big Shot starter kit would really come in handy when making cards.

  27. says

    It would be awesome to win this machine. Im on disability trying to start my own business and any free things i need would be so apprieciated!! Good luck everyone!!

  28. Shahnaz kayani says

    Yes, I make lot of cards for my friends and family .I plan to help my grand daughter make some during her holidays,it is a very good way to keep young girls involved in card craft a time well spent .I have never used Sizzix but have seen many interesting tutorials on YouTube.

  29. Kathy banks says

    Yes, I most definitely makeup my own occasion cards- birthdays, showers-
    I use varied media- hand painted vignettes of all
    subjects- relating to something the person likes-
    Sometimes I use felt, ribbons or colored buttons
    To decorate, but it’s always handmade, have never
    Used craft store punches or special tools to create

  30. says

    I’ve been making cards off and on for years, the Sizzix would sure help make the cards much nicer and easier!! I love doing cards and I’m also a big scrap booking person! Love artsy projects. Thank you for this opportunity.

  31. Heather Corbin says

    I have been making cards of all kinds for years, to receive the Sizzix would be the icing on the cake for me, since i will be making some invitations for my niece’s wedding later in the year. Just love arts and craft.

  32. J.M. Curtis says

    I have been making homemade cards for years. I think they are more personal than those bought in the store. It shows that you have given a lot of thought to the card and you give let some of your artistic flair come out.

  33. says

    I make everything for a living so this would be a welcome gift. And save me $.Which is always great! I could really use it not just for shapes foreign paper but for fabric for Quilts! Love this line it would be so amazing if it was mine! ♥♥♥

  34. J. Curtis says

    I make many of my cards because I feel that mine are better than those from the the store. I like what mine look like a lot better than what the store has since I can be a lot more creative than what I see in the card rack. ****
