Exciting news. I enjoyed reading your story.



I stumbled onto your site when I first began card making - I was looking for cuttlebug ideas since I had no idea what to do with one - and wow! I had no idea that so much could be done! I literally spent hours and hours reading through your site and soaking up all of your wonderful inspiration and creativity and, to this day, I still turn to one of your sites (love them all!) for inspiration. I love everything that I learn through the CLASSroom and only wish that it were real-life person-to-person contact so that I could learn even more! You are such a wonderful inspiration, sweet lady, and huge benefit to the scrapping/crafting world! I can't wait to see what's next. Ü
hugs and best wishes on your future endeavors,

Joanne Basile

Ellen, this sounds truly magnificent! I can't wait - thank you for your continued dedication to excellence - you are amazing!

YOU ARE AMAZING! Keep the great products coming. I absolutely LOVE Nesties, and all the other Spellbinders products. It is great that you have such insight into what the industry's needs are!!! :D


Ellen, how do I thank you for all the inspiration and education you have provided since the day I found you? Before a spinal injury and subsequent fusion, the outlet for my energy and creativity was my beautiful garden. As a lover of nature and flowers, gardening provided hours of exercise, stress relief, an outlet for my creativity, and a source of personal satisfaction. Then – ZAP! – zero gardening for a year following my injury. And now 2½ years post-op I remain unable to work in my precious garden for more than a few minutes and am strongly cautioned against anything resembling my former efforts. Nothing held my interest for more than a few minutes, not even books (I LOVE to read). The inactivity and confinement were making me c-r-a-z-y. I have always been a crafter and found myself increasingly drawn to more artistic techniques – something with an edge. Typically I found either cutesy stamping or basic card making; or on the opposite end of the spectrum – beautiful works of art beyond my abilities. Then while web surfing I stumbled onto one of your blogs. From that moment you have nourished my meager talent and inspired me to try new techniques, pushing me beyond anything I ever believed within the scope of my capabilities. Thanks to you I have stretched my inner artist and stopped blocking my own creativity. No longer do I feel confined to reproducing someone else’s art, I now create unique expressions of myself. You have helped me overcome my fear of failure – that dreadful anxiety of creating something that is not quite good enough. Now I happily enter my studio and – applying the techniques and inspiration you have so generously shared - I simply begin a project and see where it leads. Of course, some of them end up in the trash or in the ‘things to look at later with a new attitude bin’. But the greater majority are completed and proudly gifted to family and friends. I have found a wonderful outlet for my creative expression and give you full credit. Ellen, when you share your remarkable thoughts and creativity on your blogs, you have no idea how much you impact the lives of others. A simple THANK YOU seems inadequate for the amazing difference you have made in my life.

Oh my gosh Ellen, this is totally amazing!!!! Sign me up for one fresh off the assembly line when this prototype starts rolling! I'm headed to your store now to lighten my pocketbook . . . LOL!


Hi Ellen, I just had to say that I so enjoyed reading this article!! Your name, of course is not new to me, as it is heard in many circles of the stamping/crafting world. I already new how very talented you were, but had not realized how innovative you are!! You are truly an inspiration and I have to say Thank You for all the time, hard work and research you put into the craft industry, and for sharing the results of your talents with the rest of us!!

Ellen, it sounds fantastic. I am so pleased you decided to go away with your husband and spend some time together. Your ideas really inspire me. Looking forward to your new tool coming onto the market. Thanks for sharing.

Your mind never stops thinking!!! Thanks for being such an inspiration and source of information, products and good will.


From the bottom end of the world, greetings from South Africa. I have been following your blog for a long time and have bought several items from your shop. You are a great inspiration to so many stampers and I am truly excited about your new gadget! Cannot wait for it to hit the shop. Many hugz, Moz

. I am quickly becoming an addict and am very excited about the videos
on air brushing. I think the product for creating your own masks looks super
interesting. Looks like you are keeping us up to date on all the new goodies!!

Patricia League

WOW, what a great addition to the crafting world. Another tool with great potential and must-have for crafters.
Thanks for being a great inspiration!


Ellen you are sooooo smart!! I love the way your mind thinks! Miss you!


I just found you site, and wow, what a day to find it. Your ideas sound amazing, and of course I know how amazing they are just from the "nesties". I have only used SU markers, and have been reading about the Copics. But I do not understand the difference in them, and how it will improve my cards I will make. Is it possible for you to send me to a tutorial/video, or send an email to explain this to me. I need advice, then I am sure I will need to buy.LOL I am really impressed with your blog, and am looking at your store next. I thank God for sending me to your blog. Rae

WTG, I can't wait I so need one of these. I truly enjoy reading your blog and getting all the fabulous inspiration. Ellen I also want to thank you for all you do for the crafting world, without people like you this craft would not have evolved to where it is today!


I think your magnetic board is going to be a true blessing to my daughter who only has one hand! (I bet you never thought about that benefit!!). I can envision her using this to hold her paper down while writing, drawing and cutting. The fact that it rotates is going to make a HUGE difference for her. When will it be available because we cant wait to try it!


Ellen, this is a FABULOUS all your ideas!!!! More than your creative genius....its your generosity to share and educate others that touches me most. Love you, friend!!!


Sounds like another huge winner Ellen. Congratulations and THANK YOU!

Gabi With An Eye

Ellen, you must be prescient! This is exactly what us amateur stampers need. I will wait patiently for the product to go into product and be released to the market. Thank you for your initiative and steadfast dedication. I applaud you.

Ellen - aside from being amazingly talented you are a true lady! I agree with the comments above in that you have taken the high road (again!) rather than point out how others have benefited from your brilliant mind and talent...a true lady! As long as there is Ellen Hutson, LLC (forever!) I will be a loyal customer!
Thank You, Karen U


Ellen, your love to create and teach shines through everytime you post. You've got a big heart! Thank you for sharing and caring. Hugs.


very very inspiring.. :) true to the phrase.. when life gives you scrap.. make something "great" with them!
