Two Posts in 1 Day!

Just wanted to remind you about the Stamp of the Month - A Flowering Bunch ... the more I use it, the more I love it!  Today is the last day to get this stamp set - just $17.95 or with a $50.00 order (before taxes), just $5!

Here is a card I fell in love with and just had to CASE!

I used Versamark ink, Clear Embossing Powder, Sunset ink, Honey Ink, Say it in Style (why is this set retired????), and of course, A Flowering Bunch!

Have a great day!

Cricut Artbooking Collection

Here's a peek at the new Cricut Artbooking Collection ... such a great deal for only $99!  (I explain the breakdown of the costs here.)  It really is a great deal and taking a look at the handbook (pictures to come), it is going to be able to be used in so many ways!  I can't wait to order it!  It will be available to order August 1st which, the way time is flying, is just around the corner!

And don't forget, Art Philosophy and Artiste are available as well - any one of these cartridges are a fabulous collection of cuts!

Oh before I forget, today is the last day of the month of June so if you are wanting the Stamp of the Month, A Flowering Bunch, today is the last day!

Have a great day!

For Always and Sketches

Trying to use the For Always paper in other ways to show it's versatility ... here are a couple that I worked on yesterday - I was trying to do the Atlantic Hearts Sketches sketch #9 but I was doing it from memory and apparently my memory is not great!

Oh well, here they are and I won't enter them - next time I'll look at the sketch first!  Ha ha!

I used the Art Philosophy cart to cut the circles and scallops - the first one was 1.75" and 2" and the second card was 2.25" and 2.75".  The two stamp sets used were Fabulous You for the 1st card and Words of Comfort for the 2nd card.  I think I like my 2nd attempt better but the bird is so cute!  Also on the Love and Hugs card, I used Black stickles on the scallops but it's hard to see in the picture - it makes it pop a little more!

Have a great day!

So Excited for the New Catalogue!!

I have just salivated all over seen the upcoming Autumn/Winter catalogue and am so EXCITED for it!  It will be available August 1st!

There is a new Cricut cart 'Artbooking' coming out that I KNOW you will love and it is a must-have for sure!  If you want it, let me know and I'll get it for you!  I love all of our Cricut carts and I know this will be a well-used one as well!  It has fonts, overlays, borders, titles, photo mats and a ton more ... 700+ cuts and 3 sets of matching stamps and 3 sheets of chipboard that you can coordinate with the cart and the stamps!  If you love to scrapbook, your life just got a whole lot easier!  And it's not just for scrapbooking - there are a ton of elements that can very easily be used for cards!  As I get more info, I'll pass it on :)

And if you are not really into scrapbooking or cardmaking, there is jewelry making that is new and new home decor projects I think you will love!  And something called Crush Books which I don't really know what it is but it is our version of a Smash Book which is all the rage with teenagers!  If you are interested, let me know and I'll find out more!

And the upcoming Stamp of the Month sets are awesome!  If you love chocolate, you are going to love August's!  And October - love it!  Oh and January ... you'll love them all!

There are also 2 new cardmaking kits with the bonus that they went down in price!  How often do you hear of that?  They will be $24.95 instead of $29.95 and they look fabulous!  There will definitely be some classes coming making these beauties!

And the scrapbooking kits are awesome!

Oh there's so much more!

If you are wanting a new catalogue, let me know and as soon as I get some, I'll pass it on to you!  If you have ordered from me in the past, there will be no cost to you.  If you haven't ordered from me, please do!  LOL!  Just kidding, still no cost to you!

A reminder that the retiring items are going fast so if you want in on that action, go here to do some shopping!

Have a great day!
