Day 12 of 30 Days of Giveaways - Kaleidoscope Kreator 3.0

IHAN's 30 Days of Giveaways
Anniversary Celebration
Day 11 Giveaway
Kaleidoscope Kreator 3.0
by  Kaleidoscope Collections


This software is so cool that within minutes of me loading into my computer, I had my youngest co-worker on my lap and we were making fun gift tags with Kaleidoscope Kreator 3.0.  This is his first kaleidoscope:
He was smiling ear to ear when IHAN Daddy came home from work.  "Look what I made Daddy!"  He was soooo proud and I was very surprised to see that within minutes of loading the software a design could be made. 

Here is how we did it:  We opened a photo, Zachary chose a photo of himself of course :)  Then we selected a shape for our design, then he decided how many of the sections he wanted for his picture.  We put our cursor on the photo and moved it around until the part he wanted to focus on was in the "key hole" - area of the design-  he wanted to use. The program gives you a preview on the sidebar.  Zach loved moving the photo all around getting all the different scenes of himself.  Then we saved it....honestly that was all we did. 

Kaleidoscope Kreator 3.0 was so much fun (addicting) that I kept putting all sorts of photos into the variety of shapes and laughing when we came up with silly photos of the boys. 

The next photo I took from a book that will be given away during our Anniversary Celebration and made a fun kaleidoscope with it.  Can you guess what book this is from?  If you know, e-mail your answer to IWantToWinAtIHAN@yahoo.com for 5 extra entries into this drawing.  Please don't post your answer below in the comments.
I made this in less than 2 minutes and that is not an exaggeration.  Talk about a very cool pattern for a wall hanging....I love it, don't you?

Kaleidoscope Collections has a wonderful website (not to mention blog and Facebook Fan Page!!!) with great examples of how Kaleidoscope Kreator 3.0 can be used in a variety of mediums.  The photos below were "gently borrowed" from  Kaleidoscope Collections for the purpose of demonstrating the variety of amazing things that can be made with their oh so cool software :)
(please make and send me this card...pretty please)

Scrapbooking....how cool is this?

Fashion and Accessories 

One very lucky IHAN blog reader is going to win a Kaleidoscope Kreator 3.0 CD or Download (out side the US) .  To enter, please leave a comment on this post (you may want to put your e-mail address under your name) telling us why you want to win Kaleidoscope Kreator 3.0 AND what you will make if you were to win. 

I want to thank Kaleidoscope Collections for helping to celebrate IHAN's First Anniversary by so generously giving away Kaleidoscope Kreator 3.0 to one very lucky IHAN blog reader.

Smiles,
Kelly

  16. I love the flowers on the purple card at the top! I could totally see myself making something like that. I'm also envisioning red and green poinsettias and white and light grey snowflakes in a similar style. Wouldn't those make awesome christmas cards or package labels?

    ReplyDelete
  17. I would love to try this. I love snowflakes and I think this would help me make lots and lots of awesome snowflakes. Thanks.

  18. oH my GOSH!! I have been hoping and hoping that this would be one of your give aways for real!!!! I love love love Mini quilts and I love Kaleidoscope Quilts.

    There is so much you can do with this program and I have soooo been saving to get this one! It is hard to find something that will work with so many media products- you don't just have to be a sewer to appreciate the program from what I have read and seen- THAT IS WHY I CAN'T WAIT TO GET MY HANDS ON IT!!

    I have no shame in hoping I am the one that wins this software!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  20. A very cool program. Why: because this tool really gets the creative muse going. what would I make: a quilt of course, make that many quilts and wallhangings. This would be an incredible tool to use in the fiber arts.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh, WOW what a neat 'tool.' Looks more like a plaything to me. ;) I love the flowers and the bag. For me, this would be a valuable asset for accessorizing bags, vest, ...flowers for CQing. (I guess I'm hung up on CQing...need to get back to it.)

  24. I really have wanted this software for at least the last 4 years. Every I got to an event where they demo it, I am up in front watching. They have to boot me out to make me move along. I see sew many beautiful quilts, table toppers made using photographs of lovely people and places.

  28. If I were lucky enough to win, I would make a keepsake wallhanging for my daughter-in-law with pictures of her three children featured in kaleidoscopes. They are growing so fast!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I did not even realize that there was anything on the market like this! Thanks so much for sharing!

    If I were to win, I would marry the scrapbooking idea with the quilting and make several quilts. First would be one for my 6 year old granddaughter highlighting her achievements and then move on to my new little grandson. My mother would love one done with pictures of all her grandchildren in a quilt! So inspiring!

    ReplyDelete

  31. I've watched demos of Kaleidoscope Kreator on Quilting Arts. I would take a photo (just got my first digital camera at Christmas) of our irises that are coming up, Kreate with it, print on fabric and make an iris pillow for my bed. Then, I would take photos of my grandnieces and do something like your son did. Print on paper, and frame so they can have it in their bedrooms. Would love to have this software. mlwright29 at hotmail dot com

  36. Hi, Kelly--I LOVE what I see here about this Kaleidoscope Kreater 03 software. It has so many possibilities! Off the top of my head I would use it to make cards, clothing embellishments (especially jackets and shirts), and dimensional pins from the macro close-up photos I take of the flowers in my garden and other gardens. Wouldn't that be cool? I also love the idea of surprising my grandchildren with kaleidoscopes of themselves--maybe on T-shirts or special day cards. I am sure there are lots of other uses I will come up with, as well, so I really would love, love, love to win this. What a great anniversary you are having for us, your fans. Marjory
