Last week we ran a Kindle Paperwhite giveaway as a little thank you to you; our awesome community. We were also celebrating having collectively saved you guys over $250,000, which is a huge milestone.

There is no way we could have expected to receive over 300 incredible comments on that post. Thank you so much for your thoughtful suggestions, incredible feedback and general support, it means the world to us! I have personally emailed everyone who commented a set of free blurred background designs, and it’s been great to see many of you using them in your projects already.

I should apologize, as I was meant to announce the winner yesterday, but was rushing out to the airport with my girlfriend and her family, to celebrate her grandma’s 75th birthday in Austria. Here’s a picture of me heading out the door, kindle in hand!

So, without further ado…

The winner of our first giveaway is Katie Elwell.

Congratulations Katie! We’ll be in touch soon with details of how to receive your brand new Kindle Paperwhite.

Again, I can’t thank you guys enough for making our first month so fantastic. We have some really big plans for Design Cuts and will continue working crazy hours to bring you guys deals that will truly help your projects.

We also want to keep getting to know as many of you as possible. Please email us anytime to share your work, or connect with us on social media:
