WOYWW #204 & a Giveaway

I was asked by Nick Romer to review his cool product called the "Kreate-a-lope" envelope maker and I can honestly say that it's so fast and easy, it's quite addicting.  I've never made my own envelopes before because they seemed too time consuming but Nick's Kreate-a-lope lets you whip them out in just a few SECONDS!

It's what's on my desk tonight so I thought I'd share it with my WOYWW friends so you can see how easy it is. 

I picked my paper, laid the template over it, centering the open square over my design then I just pulled the paper along the edge of the Kreate-a-lope template. 

I was pleasantly surprised to see how easily it tore and how neat the torn the edges were.  Just ever so slightly shabby.  The instructions say you can trim them if you want to but I like them as is.

You just flip the paper over, place the template on the paper again, place the center template in place, then remove the large template and fold.  There's a nifty video here.

Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy! Add a little Lick and Stick (this stuff is awesome too!) and you're done!
Nick is raising money to make even more sizes of Kreate-a-lopes.  He's got a page on Kickstarter so you can get in on the action.  AND if you make a donation, he'll send you some free templates.  The details are at the link.
I think this is a fantastic, well made and economical product!  Nick's got some great sample envelopes on the Kickstarter page as well.  You can even enlarge photographs and make them into envelopes.  Now your cards can have matching envelopes!  By the way, I spied some other neat templates on his site for bags and boxes.  Gotta go, I've got some shopping to do.
Be sure to pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and see what else is happening on work desks all over the world for WOYWW#204. 
I've got little giveaway for you too.  Remember the scrap bag I told you about here?  Well, I'm giving it away.  There's everything from full yards to little pieces of lots and lots of May Arts goodness in there.
