Over the weekendElmers sponsored a craft night for me and 10 friends. It was SO much fun!!

I created these little goodies bags filled with tons of fun crafting supplies for each of my guests.


Then we started the night off with my famous Bbq Chicken Salad (I should probably edit that post, lol). It was a big hit!


After dinner  we enjoyed paper crafting with all the supplies they sent us.. and eating LOTS of chocolate!

I have to say my favorite product of Elmers is there glue spots. They’re perfect for tacking down bows and embellishments on cards. And they stay put!


My sister came down for the weekend…yay! It was so fun to see her!


Having fun crafting! What a great night. All these girls were so sweet.

  7. Donna O'Neil

    I love the glue pens. Perfect for putting stuff together that you cut out with the Silhouette.

  8. Kitty

    I love those Painters Markers especially in the pearlesant. I would totally be making a ton of cards if I won this gift pack with one of my buddies. We have a ton of birthdays in the summer

  9. Amy

    I love Elmer’s plain old white school glue! You can make SO MANY things from it…glue (obviously), DIY Modge Podge, flubber, slime…!

  10. Kitty

    I follow I heart Naptime and Elmers on Twitter as “Brauwin” btw great to meet another Phonecian’s blog!

  11. Alicia C.

    Well, Elmer’s paste was always a good snack in the afternoons at school… LOL!
    I just love Elmer’s Glue-All. Although it’s not entirely waterproof, it can do the job nearly every time I use it. I saw a project on the Elmer’s site that used a baking sheet for a magnetic bulletin board. I’d love to use the stuff in the prize package to create my own version of that board, including a cork board using that foam.

  17. Megan Nicholson

    Oh my gosh! Such an awesome giveaway! thanks! My favorite product is the painters markers!!

  18. Mindy B.

    I love the Craft Bond Memory Glue Pen and I use it for scrapbooking and paper crafts. I would definitely use these products to do the same. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity!

  19. Carole

    I am a fan of Elmers on FB. Have been for a while! As a mom of 5 and a budding teacher, Elmers is a lifeline of mine.

  20. Shawn

    I visited Elmer’s website. I love the paint markers and glue spots. We lost all of our possessions in Katrina; what we miss most are the photos and baby books. I would use the prize pack to create new memory books with photos copied from family members and friends. (That will be evacuated with us next time!)

  21. Crystal

    I would love to win so that I could use it to scrapbook. I would like the glue dots or the mounting tape :)

  22. Vicki

    Glue dots, hands down. They are useful in so many crafting/decorating situations.

  23. Lisa Wolfel

    I love the copper leafing pen! Would be a fun addition for the fall scrapbooking and card making!

  24. Tori

    I like those glue dots. I have yet to try them but I really need to. Sounds like it would be great for scrapbooking and all that! They had some cute banners on their site I love making banners!

  25. Christine

    The glue dots sound very useful. I would use them when making bows. I also like the xacto series that I saw on their website. The 12×12 cutting mat and a circular cutter would be very helpful for sewing projects.

  26. Nicole

    I love the white glue. It is a staple for a family with young kids. I also want to try the glue pen. It looks cool.

  27. Kristi Cary

    I’d say the glue stick, but I’m quite curious about the glue dots! I’ve never tried them, but maybe I’ll get the chance to now! :)

  28. Christy

    My favorite item would be the paint markers. I have been wanting to start making my own cards, so this would be awesome!

  29. Brooke

    We go hrough tglue sticks, so that would be my first thought. Looking at the website ugh, I would like the Xacto knife and self healing mat. I can’t tell you how many times I could have used that in the past month. Love the memo board example too.

  30. Brandy Miller

    My favorites are the adhesive squares and the glue dots. If I won, I would create some page layouts for my scrapbook…or I could work on some birthday cards. July is THE birthday month in my family!

  31. Kari

    I’d love to try the 3D paint markers. My son loves to color and paint so I think he would really enjoy them.

  32. julie

    I love the 5 pack Painters Markers! I would use them for an art project in my classroom!

  33. Bee

    I just love their plain school glue. I do a LOT of messy art projects with my 18 month old and a bottle of elmer’s glue is practically an art staple in this house.

  34. Liz

    They have some great projects! I think I’d pick one of the card kits or the Halloween banner.

  35. Wendy Green

    My favorite product, hard to decide, would be the paint pens. If I won the prize pack, I would probably invite a couple of friends over and we would make homemade birthday, get well, etc. cards. I love making cards and sending someone a one-of-a-kind, made from my own hands, card.

  36. Tania S.

    The Adhesive Dots would be something I would like to try. If I won this giveaway (crossing my fingers) I would have a card making party.

  37. katherine

    Would love to try the adhesive dots! Some summer crafties are definitely in order! :o)

  38. Amy Kirchhoff

    Looks like you gals had fun! There are some things on the Elmer’s site that I didn’t even know were Elmer’s brand (Painters markers). I could use some Stainable Wood Filler for this old chest I have. (A cedar chest…not my own chest. :P)

  39. aleyta

    I would love a repair kit. I do craft a lot, and while their products are amazzzzing for crafts, right now with a 19 month old I find myself always needing to fix something or glue something back together…most of all glue a page in a book after she’s ripped it out! Yikes :)

  40. Lindsay

    I like Elmer’s glue dots. They are so easy just to stick something together without the messiness of glue or the heat of a hot glue gun!

  41. Tiffany

    Of Course I follow you on Facebook, You’re an AMAZING person and it was so great to have the opportunity to go the Elmers Craft Night and I had SOO much fun !! Thank You.

  42. Tiffany

    My favorite product would have to be the Xacto Knife and the Glue All Max !! you can do so much with both of them!

  43. kelley clayton

    The spray adhesive is really convenient… but I also like the glue sticks. I am never without at least a good dozen gluesticks in my stash. I use them on everything from scrapbooking to giving my son something “to do”… thanks for the give away!

  44. Tiffany

    I posted the giveaway on Facebook !! Congrats on who wins !! :) Thanks Jaimelyn for all your hard work, you’re an AMAZING person !! <3

  45. Michelle

    I also love the glue dots, and I think I would make birthday cards with my kiddos!

  46. Bethany Kingma

    Thanks so much for the giveaway! My favorite Elmer’s products are the wood glue and the tacky glue. Total must-haves for a DIY-er! If I won this drawing, I would definitely put those X-Acto’s to work and make myself some freezer paper stencils! :)

  47. Bethany Kingma

    I am a fan of Elmer’s and I Heart Naptime on Facebook! :) Thanks SO much for the giveaway! :)

    I would love to try the glue dots. Those sound easy and less messy to use. I’m a new follower. Love your blog.

  50. Connie H

    My favorite Elmer’s product would be the spray adhesive or maybe the paint pens. I just like all the Elmer’s stuff! I think I would be making cards if I won the prize package.

  51. Carey

    I’ve recently been making cold porcelain pendants, using primarily Elmer’s glue and cornstarch, with small tissue paper circles cut out and decoupaged on them. So many items in this prize pack would be perfect for this project! I’m now following I Heart Nap Time and Elmers on Facebook, looking forward to getting some more good ideas. Thanks for sharing and offering!

    This is such a great idea! I love Glue Dots! We had a craft table at our wedding for all the kids that came and they were great! No mess and everything stayed put! If I won I would be making some book marks that I found a tutorial for recently! Thanks.
