A few weeks ago Olfa sweetly sent me one of their new Splash 45mm rotary cutters to try out! Now, to be honest, I'm such a girl that the first thing I did when I saw it was squeal, "OH! It's aqua!" Who says all your notions/tools have to be drab colors??? Plus, it makes it much easier to find in my mess of a sewing room. :) It works great and is easy to hold, like all Olfa cutters, but the absolute best part is how fast you can change the blade! You pull down a button on the back and BAM! The blade falls off! Have I mentioned it's AQUA???? So adorable! Yes, I'm a sucker for all things pretty.
Want to know something else? Olfa sent me a second Splash cutter to give away! All you have to do to enter is comment on this blog post! Maybe tell me your favorite summer song, cocktail, or recipe. I'll have Mr. Random Number Generator choose a winner on June 5th!

I can't wait to consume some great sangria this summer! Thanks for the giveaway!!
Unsweet ice tea! It's simple and new-to-me, and I'm in love with it. :)
Well, it's not really a cocktail and as recipes go it's pretty simple... but Arnie Palmers (half iced tea/half lemonade) are my favorite summer drink!
Oooh pretty!!! :)
Summertime-- love the Beach Boys in the hot weather! :)
I make a super simple Watermelon drink! It's my fave summer refreshment!
A nice Margarita on the rocks would cool anyone off in the summertime!
HI! LOVE ALL HERBAL ICED TEAS WITH FRUIT BITS ADDED ON THE PATIO FOR SUMMERTIME! THANKS FOR SHARING!
If I were going to have a cocktail, it would be a Tequila Sunrise. We have retired to the land of tequila and it should be for special celebrations. Thank you for the chance to win.

Cute cutter! My favorite summer beverage is any type of shandy or raddler beer - the lemony taste is the perfect thing to cool me off!
If summer ever arrives(!) I'm a Pimms girl!
I think a nice big glass of ice water hits the spot on a hot Texas summer day.
i'm a bit ashamed to admit this, but i think my summer jam is going to be #Beautiful by Mariah and whoever the guy is that sings with her. oh and maybe Get Lucky by Daft Punk too.
Mojitos!! We finally have a nice day here....maybe I'll have to have one!
Love a nice ice tea or iced coffee!
I love a good Belgian white beer in the summer. I also love tall caeser drinks (clamato juice, vodka, whorcestershire sauce, lime, tabasco, celery and a seasoned salted rim). Yum! I hope summer comes soon.
Pear Flower cocktail! St Germain, la Poire vodka, lemon juice, splash of Perrier. Delicious!
It really isn't a recipe but I just love grilled, marinated chicken breasts. Good for dinner and left over in a salad the next day for lunch.
I drink a lot of iced mint tea. Add a sprig of fresh mint and it tastes and looks special. As for the cutter, I have to agree--it's aqua!!!
Lemonade is a summer classic, as it should be.
It has to be Pimms, although let's be honest, us Brits don't exactly get much of a summer!
I recently made my first sangria and I'm so excited to make it often this summer! Oranges, limes, blackberries, triple sec, red wine and sparkling cider. Yum. ;)
Summer calls for G&T's (gin and tonic with a splash of lime), sitting by the lake, picnics and family fun. What a cool cutter. Love the cutter and how the blade pops off.
Empire of the sun- walking on a dream! Gets me dancing and happy instantly!
I would totally be squealing too! I love having fun tools, they make me so happy. plus, it's super handy having different cutters, so you can put different blades in each one and know without checking which is which. (I have one for dull fabric blades that I use for paper, and I really want one to put a pinking blade in).
I don't have a favourite summer cocktail, if it's fruity, I love it! the past few years I've been obsessed with lemonade though, especially if it's pink!
Anything fruity :)Love the cutter!
My favorite summer drink is either a Summer Shandy or a mojito. Depends if I can find someone to make a proper mojito for me. : ) Very cute rotary cutter!!!!!
Nice cutter. As for the summer drinks it must be Aperol Spritz (Italian wine, Italian oranges, Italian Aperol and ice cold sparkling water)... summer where are you???
Last year we starting brewing cider at home, and it came out just like cloudy british scrumpy. That is now my favourite summer beverage.
My new favorite cocktail recipe is Pineapple rum, coconut rum, watermelon schnapps, orange juice and a splash of grenadine. Sooooo yummy!

The first thing I thought to myself when I saw your pic was also,'oh wow, it's aqua!' :)
A good ole' lemonade on a hot summer day is perfect!

Pretty aqua! Although I love tangerine more ;)
I'm a sucker for cupcakes and milkshakes and smoothies during the summer.

My favorite summertime recipe is a very simple one. Slice one fresh from the garden homegrown tomato onto two pieces of fresh soft bread that has been slathered with lots of Duke's mayonnaise. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper and enjoy! ♥
I really don't have a favorite or recipe. Maybe a nice glass of wine and burger's on the grill. Nothing fancy because it takes away from my time to quilt. I never have enough time for that.
Thanks for the opportunity! Liked, shared and it's gotta be a frozen Pina Colada ;)
I have never been much of an aqua fan UNTIL I made an aqua and red quilt for my granddaughter's high school graduation last week and I am SO in love with it now!!! I have my craft room done in red and I could really use this new rotary cutter to begin my transformation to red and AQUA!!! I just LOVE it!!

Aqua is my new favorite spring color! A splash of it in my sewing room would be great!
Pink Lemonade sounds delicious!
One thing I loved to drink in summer but miss since we moved to Iowa is agua de horchata. It's so refreshing when it's hot.
OOh! It's adorable! I love Olfa products - I think I've been using them for over 30 years if memory serves me right. As far as my favorite summer recipe - I love to keep it simple. I slice a few pounds of strawberries (or fresh peaches, apricots or pitted cherries) and add about a cup of Stoneyfield Organic Vanilla yogurt and stir that up. I serve it chilled and it is a nicest 'guilt free' simple dessert for summer time. If I want to be 'fancy' I'll make an angel food cake and top it with the yogurt/fruit mixture.
I think Margarita with lots of salt around the glass. Thanks for the chance to win such a nice gift.
Olfa makes such wonderful products and I agree the new color will make it very easy to spot. Thank you for hosting this giveaway.
I love to drink raspberry lemonade or eat sorbet. thank you for the opportunity.
I always loved that song "Sweet Southern Comfort" by Buddy Jewell. It wasn't a huge hit, but I just love it!!
Hooray for giveaways :) Thanks so much!
My all time favorite songs for summer are the Beach Boys. I love all of their songs so much.
Love the idea of an easier blade change. I usually put mine back together wrong.
Savage Garden never fails to get me bobbing around the house. Then a big jar of lemon tea to cool off. Summer is going to be great!!
I would love to win the cutter. My rusted, because I put up sewing and quilting stuff. I now have a place to sew and craft. My daughter wants to learn to sew now.
I love this color and the quick blade change sounds awesome. My favorite recipe is for gooey butter cake. My grandmother and mother made it every year on my birthday, I am a summer baby!

Why does beer taste better on a summer night? Maybe because it goes so well with grilled food? I dunno. I like caramel iced coffee too which isn't quite a cocktail, either! Cute functional cutter!
