Blog's 1st Anniversary & Giveaway



To celebrate our first anniversary, we would like to introduce Juliette! The Juliette collection is a romantic journey of patterns to inspire your loveliest thoughts. The glitter and pearly accents are perfect for highlighting the love of your life and reminding you of sweet memories.



We have enjoyed creating projects and coming up with fun ideas for you this year. We really love all of your comments and appreciate the creative guest bloggers who have shared their inspiration with us. Thank you for your support! To show you just how much we love you, we are giving away some exclusive Juliette products. Our shipment doesn't come in until the end of next week. So, the winner will be the first to taste this sweet and lovely line!

All you need to do to enter is leave a comment on this post by Sunday, November 1 at midnight telling us what you would like to see happen with the blog in the next year. We will announce the winner on Monday. Last time we asked for this kind of feedback, Dorthea wrote everything down and checked it off for us as we fulfilled each request. The point is WE LISTEN, so leave us a comment!

Thanks again, Everyone!

Maybe a forum where readers/followers could share their pages and projects?

This looks like another beautiful line. Happy birthday!

Vone said...

I love seeing all the great new ideas. I'm not a scrapbooker myself so I would love to see other paper crafts too.

Leah the Orange said...

HOW EXCITING! the Juliette line looks WONDERFUL, and i can't wait to see who's going to carry it near me!

i'd love to see challenges that would allow followers to sample your yummy club kits, so we can get a good feel for a variety of different elements and tools... everything i've seen so far has been LOVELY!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

ania said...

Looks like a gorgeous, lush line! :) Have enjoyed seeing various creations here - just keep up w/sharing inspirations regulary :)

Shirley said...

More projects/layouts and behind the scenes stuff if possible (stuff that we take for granted but you have to do all the time)?

Kate & Oli said...

This line is so pretty and will be perfect for a friend who's pregnant with a girl. I was hoping to make her a brag book and now I know what I'll use!

I'd love to see more reader pages, as well. I'm also not a scrapbooker and a focus on other items, like cards, album making, etc, would be lovely!

connie said...

I would love to see some more tutorials. I love the projects and LO's but sometimes need to see how it is done.

LG said...

I would love to see the works of other scrappers featured on your blog or maybe a community site where your customers can post their works

Laura Mae said...

this line is totally cute! as for something to help with your blog...maybe some more tutorial videos. You could do a monthly video and have us submit our projects based on the video and do a giveaway. Everyone loves giveaways =)

Christine said...

I just found out about your blog a couple of months ago so I haven't been here all year! I would love to see contests and challenges. It is so much fun to create with a purpose!!!

Blessings,
Christine

Hi,

I love the new romantic line, really beautiful designs and colours!
What do I like to see in future?

Happy Blogoversary!

Loving this new line. The latest lines this fall have been your best!

Lovely line....the possibilities!

I agree with a lot the others that have commented. I would like to see projects from followers and examples from your own design team. We love getting inspiration!

Happy Anniversary!! Wow, the Juliette collection looks amazing!! I think featuring more art work and show your kits more with ideas of what can be done with the kit. Thanks!

Joy said...

I'd love to see local teachers post classes using all SEI products. List the class - when and where. Then post pics of the class afterwards. I'm sure SEI might even donate a raffle item or two ???

Expressions of a Creative Mind said...

What a gorgeous new line!! I would like to see more tutorials. I love learning more new things or in different ways

Ash said...

I would like to see lots of samples (which is already done but more can't hurt lol). Also, maybe challenges for blog followers so we can participate more would be nice. Maybe a flickr account so we could all see what everyone is doing.

Brenda Lubrant said...

I really do enjoy following your blog, and I wish you a Happy First Anniversary. I would love to see your design team be able to do some videos. I love watching other paper crafters do their projects. It also allows us to see how your products can be used.

I'm one of many who would like to see reader's projects, both layouts, cards and altered items. A gallery would be great, too.

NanaBeth said...

I am crafty inept-so I dearly love all the how-to's and tutorials. My favorite was the series on stamping-awesome. I learned so much.

Ginajam said...

what a gorgeous new line...gotta have some :-)

I love when you have guest bloggers...that's such a great thing you do! Challenges are always cool, too!

jjindp said...

Air Force Blues said...

I love ideas. So I am always looking for more ideas. Scrapbooking as well as other paper crafting.

Tessie said...

Would love to see alternative project ideas for the monthly kits. The instruction sheet said I could go to this blog for alternative project ideas so I was disappointed when I didn't find any here:( Happy Birthday - love all the creative blog entries!!!!!

Bonnie said...

How lovely. Hope I win!

Scott and Em Hoffman said...

Dana said...

I Love SEI! And the fact that your Cache Valley folk makes you even better.
I would love to see more home decor ideas with your lines. I love to decorate with paper and change it through the seasons.
More "boy" stuff too would be great
Thank you very much!

Cathy said...

This is a very lovely line of paper - can't wait to see it IRL.
Congratulations on one year of blogging! This has been a very inspirational blog this past year - I'd love to see more projects but your followers too and I love to see what inspires people - posts about NSBR things in their lives that inspires them to scrapbook.

Keep up the great work!

Cathy

Jenn said...

Tutorials,tutorials,tutorials!! :)
What beautiful paper!

Laura Stewart said...

just keep the great layouts and cards coming!

Stephanie Baxter said...

Ooooh, what a lovely new line! I would love to see more readers' pages on the blog!

Diana N. said...

I would love to see more examples of cards that could be made with your kits, as I'm into cardmaking rather than scrapbooking. A place where readers could submit photos of their projects using your products would be great. More giveaways for leaving comments, even if you don't submit projects.

I love the Juliette kit. Very feminine with the lace patterns, but masculine combinations are certainly possibility with the stripes and solits and more subtile patterns.

Dawne Carlisle said...

I would love to see reader challenges and guest designers! Love the new line!

Shayne said...

just found this blog and look whats up, a giveaway! whoot

Chriss Blagrave said...

I have just found your blog and will be looking in from now on. I love your paper. The colours, texture and themes are so sweet and artsy and easy to create with. Thanks for such a great product. Looking forward to your new releases!
Happy blogoversary!

Katie said...

I would like to see more project ideas with instructions.

Taly said...

I have just found your blog through the Google's recommendation system so I don't feel I can say what I want to see more or less of...

I can only say what I would love to see.

Product heavy, such as 'x' - 5 ways would be nice to stretch the use of your fabulous products, as well as tutorials for new techniques would be awesome.

Kristen Hamlin said...

Congrats on your first year!

I'd like to see some more follower projects (maybe a flickr just for follower projects) and maybe some how to projects like mini albums and decor projects.

And the Juliette line looks AMAZING!

Theresa said...

I love sketches. :) Also love how-to techniques. Projects are fun too.

Gracie said...

I just love seeing good looking scrapbook pages with your products!
Juliette looks lovely!

judy said...

Congratulations on your first anniversary...kudos to your design team for doing a great job! I'm fairly new to papercrafting & scrapbooking, so I especially enjoy your close-up photography and inspiring ideas. I'd like to see more step-by-step projects, possible tutorial site, and a forum to showcase layouts, cards, tags and projects by fellow crafters using featured/older lines. This would allow everyone to join forces with your design team to showcase many ways to use your featured/older design lines, and keep us inspired & interested in purchasing all available line components. Again, thanks for all you do!!

Lacy said...

I JUST discovered SEI paper and I am IN LOVE! Your collections are beautiful, and I want every one of them!

Though I just discovered this blog, I would love to see more projects -- especially mini's or paper crafts.

I loved the magnet tutorial, too! So creative.

Lorraine said...

i like to see tons of example pages...yours, readers, etc. especially 12x12 but others are great.
also some fun step by step project ideas

Tammie said...

What a beautiful line...would love to see what others are doing with the club kits. I can't wait to get the Juliette line.

Layouts, Layouts, Layouts! I also love seing maps to follow for layouts!

BarbaraMSD said...

Congratulations on your anniversary!

I would love to see ideas on what to do with left-over scraps from projects. Perhaps post a project one day, and then the next day show what you could make with the scraps from the previous day's project. I am always looking to make scraps go further and appreciate good ideas for that.

Sarah said...

I'd love to see more layouts, ideas, and projects!

alisa logue said...

Sei's product lines are always so fresh and unique. The appearance of the blog does not really illustrate that. When I first visited the blog I thought I must have had the wrong site. I think a colorful banner and side bars with more projects showcasing product and demonstrating techniques would definitely be beneficial. The product lines never disappoint keep up the great work. -Alisa

interactthis said...

Would love to see more reader pas - thanks for the chance

Miss Jaster said...

what yummy paper!! Perfect name for it too!

jonim52 said...

Would love to see new project ideas and previews of products

Rachel said...

Would love more opportunities to have readers upload their projects using SEI!

Kim Evans said...

I just found your site & am in so much love. I am officially your newest blog stalker!!! Thanks for the inspiration! What a great way to end 2009 and begin the new year. So much to see!!!! Thank you!!!
