National Craft Month Contest Week 3

***Giveaway is closed*** We'll post the winner shortly!

I am loving this month of giveaways.  What better way to celebrate National Craft Month?

The weekly giveaways continue. Our Class Team was first and they gave away a Beaducation Online Class of the winner's choosing.  Alice P. won that one and she is super excited to get started on her new Riveting Class.  The Inventory Team has spoken and the lucky winner of a new Power Punch Pliers had just been chosen. (Congrats to Mary!) The Shipping Team is up soon and they have a great party pack surprise for you. Now it's my turn. I'm up!

We are all picking products to give away, that have something to do with our role here. As the oh so proud owner of Beaducation, my roles are many. Just like every single person on my team, I do a little of everything. My main duty here (besides paying the bills) is to develop new products.  So I will give away my most favorite product that I have developed....a Beaducation Original Stamp Set.

Did you know that the Kismet font set was the first designer font set to hit the market in high production? Before this set, your only option (without shelling out $375 to have your own custom set made) was uppercase block. Kismet was a huge hit, especially the lowercase!  That lowercase Kismet continues to be our top selling font set.  Do you have one?  Do you want one?  Or perhaps you already have one, but you are hoping to score a Wackadoodle set (currently my personal favorite).  

Well, whichever Beaducation Original Set you are longing for, add a comment here to enter a chance to win the set of your choice.  Let us know which stamp set excites or inspires you, and why.
You can earn extra chances of winning this great prize. Post a link to this blog post (not just the blog) on your blog, Facebook page, or your Twitter feed (use #Beaducation in your Twitter post so we will see it) about this National Craft Month giveaway.  

Let us know in a separate comment on this post. (So if you comment once you have one entry.  Then comment again for each social media link that you made for additional entries to win. One comment with all of the places you reposted, FB'ed and Twittered will just get you one entry.)
 
Good luck all! Leave a comment below and we'll pick the winner by random drawing on Monday, March 21, 8 AM PST.

What a fun month of giveaways! I really like the Kismet Uppercase stamp set.

Thank you for the giveaway!

The Dutch Girl said...

I love the new wackadoodle lower case set!

D Fritz said...

My favorite is the Wackadoodle set. After years of designing jewelry using precision and seeking perfection, I feel a whole new level of creativity unleashed as I am designing whimsical pieces. These stamps represent the fun side of working in metals.

Kym Hunter Designs said...

I just posted your giveaway on my blog at http://kymhunterdesigns.blogspot.com/2011/03/in-celebration-of-national-craft-month.html

Thanks again!

In love with the Wackadoodle design set! Love how fun the letters look - oh, the possibilities!!!

RedFox said...

I am so excited about this one! I just ordered your book and some regular stamps but love the wackadoodle....I don't know if I spelled that correctly. I can't wait to start stamping away!

Shannon Neill said...

Oooo I love your stamps! I would pick the lower case kismet set, as it is really easy to read and I like the lower case look on the samples on your site! I have lots of your design stamps but I need some letters to expand my stamping! Pick me!

Brooke Mosher said...

I just started stamping and I LOVE it! Thanks Beaducation :-)

Cheryl said...

I love the lowercase Kismet (don't have) but dreamed about. I like the wackadoodle also. Would love to win either one. I love stamping jewelry.

Decisions....decisions...decisions. I think i would want the "Wackadoodle"

Sandra Collins said...

The Kismet lower case is calling my name. I love the sort of random feel it has to it. It feels very open and friendly and sorta bohemian.

Cheryl said...

I've left a comment here, my blog (Hope for Each Day) and on FB.

Annie Nygard said...

Wackadoodle... it's just downright awesome!!!

Patricia said...

My favorite is Kismet uppercase. It draws people close to you to read what is stamped giving the real Kismet a chance maybe to work it's magic?

Heather said...

I have been saving money so I can start stamping. I have watched almost all of your free instruction videos and am so anxious to start. I would LOVE the kimset lower case stamp set. I can't WAIT to start creating beautiful jewelry for friends and family.

Cindy B. said...

The Wackadoodle upper case font is super fun!

I love all the fonts but I would really love to have the Kismet Number Stamp Set. I am tired of the arial number set that I current have.

I love all of beaducation fonts, but I would really love to have the Kismet Number Stamp Set. I am bored of the arial number set that I currently have.

Susan Goodell said...

I adore the uppercase wackadoodle font, maybe because I have a little wackadoodle in my personality. What a fantastic giveaway and oh so generous.

Jean - Pixie Dots said...

Crazy about "wackadoodle"! Actually, let's be honest... lovin' all the whimsical fonts! Lately I've been most inspired by using a variety of fonts on a single piece... the funky, mis-matched look adds to the custom nature of the pieces. Can't get enough of these fun fonts!!!

Jean said...

Fairly certain that my wife is "wacky" about your new "wackadoodle" font... is it a bad sign that this was her request for our anniversary (and birthday; and St. Patty's Day; and Easter; and President's Day... you get the idea)??? Apparently, you've got something good here!

Kathy said...

I would agree since I already have Kismet (name alone is great!) it would have to be lowercase wackadoddle! I love the personality of it and want to teach my young nephew how to stamp on jewelry - these sets would be great for it!

Stacey said...

Love the wackadoodle set!! My wire working hobby got cut short with hand surgery but the stamping has allowed me to get back into it. I love it!!

Mimi said...

I ordered the Wackadoodle set as soon as it came out, and absolutely love it. :) I'm thinking it may have to be Kismet if I win. How fun would THAT be??

I like the simplicity of the Beaducation (Block) Gothic lower case stamp. Wonderful giveaway.

TJC said...

Kismet or wackadoodle how do you decide out of two fantastic sets?

I think I would have to go with the Kismet uppercase.

My Life Under the Bus said...

My brain is arguing between lower case Kismet and lower case Script .I love Kismet for it's happy go lucky feel and script for it's elegant/vintage feel - how to decide???(*crosses fingers*)

Thanks for the chance!

Karyn B said...

I love them all, but I do like the lowercase Block (Gothic) because it seems the most versatile.

chocolateknits said...

I understand why the lowercase Kismet is a best seller -- I love the curly bits

Chris said...

Who would not want a wackadoodle set! I love working with metals and this is so much fun!My hopes are high already :)

redhedjny said...

I have the Kismet uppercase set and it's awesome! Though I'd love to have the Kismet lowercase set to go with it. Thanks for the opportunity!

BurningRubber said...

How cool! I don't have any of them so I am super excited!

SuzyL said...

I am a sucker for script lettering. I love the lowercase ones because they are really classic and romantic!

Sandra said...

The lowercase Kismet rocks! I just started stamping and that would be such a fun font to use.

Crow Steals Fire said...

I like both Kismet and Wackadoodle, especially the lowercase. I'm partial to that style of "a". But if I had to choose, it would be Wackadoodle lowercase. The "g" is too cute! Plus, I especially like lowercase since it's so much easier to read than uppercase. :-)

ljordan00 said...

The Kismet upper case is my favorite, thought the Kismet lower case is a close second. It's a fun, whimsical font. Can't wait to add one of these to my collection!

Crow Steals Fire said...

I tweeted! I really want Wackadoodle lowercase! I love that it's such a cute serif font.

http://twitter.com/#!/dlkfox

Melody - Hope of My Heart Designs said...

How fun! It's so hard to pick, but my favorite would probably be the Kismet lowercase set. I love the little touch of elegance it adds over a basic letter set.

Thank you!!

Crow Steals Fire said...

I posted the contest on my Facebook page. I'd love to have Wackadoodle in lowercase. It's a great serif font with the cutest "a" and "g" letters in particular! So many times, it's those little details that make the piece.

as much as i am faithful to the idea that the inspiration comes from the person, i have to waiver a little because of the thought and love that was obviously put into the Beaducation original font sets. You have helped so many wonderfully creative people push thier potential with your original collection of stamps (fonts, design stamps, etc). Thank you for the motivation :). Suzie

Adriana said...

My favorite is the lowercase kismet stamp set. All your designs are great!

Lowercase Kismet! Great letters and style. Thanks for the chance.

Zura said...

I like the lower case kismet set. I have an old industrial set of stamps, but they're bulky and and ugly font. I'd love something more modern and "airy". Thanks for the chance!

maneki said...

Among the Beaducation Originals letter sets I really like Script (lower case). It's so pretty and romantic and very unlike the standard letter stamps. The letters are so elegant, you don't actually have to write words as the letters make such a pretty pattern just as they are.

maneki said...
