What a wonderful way to help out! I'll be sure to order a copy of the DVD. At $9.99 and free shipping, it is a deal!

My favorite scrap tool has to be my ATG (Adhesive Transfer Gun) from 3M. I use it all the time to scrap and make cards. It's a great product!

Wow! I was having the same thoughts as Samantha! My number one tool has to be the Heat Tool... I love embossing and of course it dries my inks super fast!


I love my CM cutting system! Super fast and easy to crop pictures!

I just purchased a copy, put a post on my blog linking to the purchase site and back here. I hope you sell a bazillion. Hi Zach!


Hi Erika,
Just ordered the DVD (it looks hilarious!), and will link to my blog. Uuuummmm, my favorite tool...there are so many...believe me...a lot...a lot...a lot...a lot...I guess I'll take the easy way out and say my new ATG 714 (almost sounds like a foreign car model). Hope this DVD raises A LOT of money! (BTW, one of my nephews is autistic as well).

The DVD sounds great and I'm sure it will be in a lot money for this great cause. My favorite tool would have to be my scissors. I usually cut out a lot of images. Thanks for a chance.


My favorite scrap tool has to be my ATG Gun from 3M. I use this tool everytime I scrapbook or make cards. I love it so much that I had to buy another one. Now I have one which I keep acid free tape in for scrapping & the other is for cards, etc.


Hi Erika! How Exciting!! Russ is wonderful, the DVD is amazingly funny. Im about to open my Studio and can't wait to show this DVD. Russ contacted me a few months back when you first posted this clip and asked for my address to he could send one. Free of Charge! How wonderful was that?? SO, in return I am going to try to get it into the hands of all my scrapbookers. I am so glad it falls at a great time. I am also going to put together an all proceeds scrap for autism after the first of the year. I want to get a few of Gina's sets to have on hand, besides my own. Sorry to ramble. I get so excited about anything that helps this cause.
Blessing to you and yours and all that are touched by this.
Hugs, Lourin


What a great idea!! I'm adding a link to my blog! :)

My fave tool is my Fiskars paper cutter. It makes cutting my pictures (straight!) a snap and it's the perfect size to take anywhere!

Point? I bought the DVD Erika, for you, for Zach, for the children of friends, for my own healthy childlren. I cried tears of joy and amazement at the woman you must be and the awesome gift you see in your precious son..I am so impressed.
I know people who wish it were otherwise, they cry & complain, feel sorry for themselves... for what they feel they have lost rather than what they have found...... Not you, not Erika Martin Viking Warrior Woman who has touched my soul via internet by sharing her life and special children and talents :}

You are an Icon of strength, acceptance and change... for the better. :}
YOU rock sistah as a woman, as amother as Zach's Advocate.
While reading what you wrote on the Molly's site about your HERO, your Zachy boy... I am going to haeva girls night out at my house with cool frozen drinks, martini's of any flavor, card making page making and this DVD we shall watch after we have one drink or during the night even. :}
Over and over, we may not getmuch work doen whilst laughing so hard... My friends will LOVE it :}

Thanks for sharing this video clip and the info on the DVD!! I see some Christmas presents for a lot of friends made easy!!!


What a great cause, working in the field of child care I'm all too familiar with the large number of affected children and families, the lack of awareness and funding to help support this cause.
My favourite tool is the crop a dile.
