Die Cutting -and a Giveaway

NOW CLOSED! Winner to be announced Soon.(12/12/12) 

Many of you know that I participated in the blog hop for The Big Little Book of Die Cutting Tips.

 If you missed the hop, or just didn't get to all the posts, I am posting the list here:


As I was at the end of the blog hop, I didn't post the list with my review. I decided it would be great to share it with you now. I am still working on a project that I can't show. (sorry)  So how about a giveaway?  
I have an extra copy of the The Big Little Book of Die Cutting Tips  that I would love to share with one of you. 
So here is my idea. Go! to my YouTube channel and watch some of my die cutting videos.  Tell me which of my videos is your favorite and why and tell me why you want the book (in one comment) This is required to qualify to win. 
For a second chance (after qualifying) you can like my page on Facebook - leave a second comment. 
This will close on December 12th and I will choose a winner. If I can't contact you, you can't win.  If your email is not available on your blogger account, please leave it in the comments. 
I usually reply to all comments, but I may not reply to those on this post. 
Good luck!

I like your split tumbler YouTube video. You give a couple of good tips and make it clear that we age gracefully! :)

I'd love to win this. I'm embarrassed to say why. I've had a Go Cutter for 2 years, it was a Christmas gift. I've never used it! All of the videos on how to use it properly kind of scared me off. There are so many it seems like it would be a big time commitment to learn to use it properly.

I like your hairspray basting video. What a simple idea that can save alot of money. Plus, hairspray is easier to clean off the floor than the usual glue based basting spray.

I do enjoy all your videos though. I always find a piece of information that I didn't know.

My favorite video is your Scrapbusting one. Have watched several times, and I enjoy your pennywhistle playing. Thank you so much for the giveaway. The book sounds wonderful.

My favorite is your Quartersquare Triangle video. Great tips for not wasting fabric and how the 4 1/2" strip die works with this die. I've used my die cutting machine for all my paper craft projects and would love a copy of the book to see how to best use it for cutting fabrics. Thanks for sharing and for the chance!

I like the Friendship Star block because I love stars and the Friendship star is one of my favorites. I love how you use the chisel die to create it! Thanks for sharing! I'd love to win this book to see how to use the different dies. Thanks for the giveaway!

My fav of your videos is the scrap busting one! I love it because it showed me how to use up my scraps when I first got my GoBaby...and I liked watching it again, too. I can't stand to let anything go to waste, and the cutter helps with my obsession to "use it all up." LOL
Now, I would love to have the book, because from the reviews, it sounds like there are lots of good tips that will help me utilize the cutter even more efficiently. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

Hi Gene, I think I like the split tumbler block video the best. I also love the scrap buster.

Thank you so much for your videos! I am a new owner of a Sizzix die cutter, and have had no training or help with it. Needless to say, I am excited about any help I can get in learning how to use it and make the most of it! I especially loved your scrap cutting video - I make a lot of scrappy quilts and now I am excited about playing with my die cutter to "shape" up my scraps LOL!!! Ebony's book would be a great Christmas present *hint* !!!!
