Tick Tock….it’s almost over! Do you have your entry?

Tick Tock…it’s almost over!! Do you have your entry?

 

Today is the last day and actually, we are into the last few hours of the Great Cricut Giveaway!!  Here’s my update:

I have the most amazing team and customers!!  We started this month off with 8800 points and we are over half way there.  I realize that with only 10 more hours to go, that it’s tough goal to reach, but I’m still working on it, sick and all.  82 more $50.00 orders to go (although ANY order helps out).  I need to do tallies and we may be at another $100 shopping spree!!  I just loving giving away things.  I know we’ll have a few other things to give away as well! I’m working on tallying up where we are at.  Super excited to have all these things to give away.   End goal??  I’d really love to do a random drawing for a Cricut Air 2 if we reach the 39000 mark!!

Mary from CardzTV:

I’ve recently partnered up with Mary from CardzTV.  If you don’t subscribe to this YouTube channel, you should.  She makes amazing cards and provides great tutorials.  Here’s her first tutorial on the CTMH You are Here Cartridge!!

I just love watching other people use CTMH products with other crafting products.  It really shows how versatile CTMH products are and how anyone can add them to their collection and use them with what you have!  There is no need to be exclusive to any one product.  If you order this today, the physical cartridge, you’ll get two entries to win a Cricut Air 2!

Speaking of the physical cartridge, it’s very important to let you know that Cricut is phasing out all physical cartridges, which makes me very sad.  So if you are operating on the earlier Circuts and are not using Design Space, you’ll need to get your physical cartridges from CTMH before they run out.  You can check and see which ones you can get here:

Will You Help Me?

Will  You Help Me?

I’d love to be able to give away a Cricut Air 2 on October 1!!  Will you help me be able to do this?  We need 108 more $50.00 orders and we’ll reach the goal of giving away a Cricut Air 2!!   There is so much CTMH goodness available right now available in these two new Idea Books, you can’t go wrong.

Where we are at:

I have 4 days to reach a goal of 39000 points to fully earn the Thailand Trip.  The great news is we are 85% of the way there.  We need 108 more – $50.00 orders to help reach the goal of 39000 points. This is 108 customer orders. Will you be one of them?  I sure hope so.
 
What’s in it for you?
  • $50.00 of awesome CTMH products!  That’s a win/win for you.
  • I can give away a Cricut Air 2!!  Would you like a fancy, dancy, cuts twice as fast Cricut machine???
  • $100 shopping sprees! We are splitting up the hostess gifts for all the orders attached to this by $100 increments so you could win a $100 shopping spree as well!  That’s a 200% return on investment if you win.  =) Happiness, right?!
  • Add the Annual Inspirations ($6.00) and the Holiday Expressions (FREE) to your order so they ship right to you.  I will give you a $6.00 credit on your next order (I have to place the order for you) or cash & carry at a crop.  They are both lovely.
  • Happy Mail…did I mention my Happy Mail campaign?  When you place online orders attached to my monthly online gathering, you get Happy Mail.  And it’s happy cause you don’t know what’s in it!  It just arrives sometime in the next month!
1) Here’s the link to place your order:
 
2) Join the Last Great Cricut Giveaway gathering when you check out.  This is a must to have the hostess gifts to give away.
 
3) There are restrictions – The following do not count towards the $50.00 product order:
  • Disaster Relief stamp set – consultants do not get credit for this item – you order must be $50.00 of product BEFORE this item is added on. 100% of the profit goes to American Red Cross.
  • the Annual Inspiration Catalog –  they do not give consultants credit for these items.
  • Home gatherings (someone else is getting the hostess rewards)

There’s nothing more fun then getting a CTMH box full of goodies followed by Happy Mail!   Happy Mail is just a thank you for being such a blessing to me.  My two little helpers love to go visit the Post Office with me to drop off Happy Mail.  They are always involved in my crafting as they love paper (albeit to eat it) and chasing bling around that I drop on the floor!

The Brew Crew

The Brew Crew

Wow…Here are some fun cards with a Design Space file for a coffee shaped card that I made over 2 years ago and used many times over.  I’ve included the DS file for you.  There were several different Pins and posts from the Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop that inspired this creative set of cards.  All the papers used are from CTMH.  The stamps are retired CTMH stamps, with the exception of the “Haunted Cup” card which features “Cats and Bats Cardmaking Stamp set and dies.” The sentiment about “Pumpkin Spice” is from Sugar Pea Designs.

SG (my daughter) gave names to each of the Brew Crew cards.  I had wanted all the cards to be “brew” cards but she felt strongly that the Cat card needed to be “Cat Coffee” , not “Cat’s Brew”.

 

 

 

 

Supplies needed to create these cards:

Enjoy The Little Things and Blog Candy

Enjoy The Little Things and Blog Candy

This layout is created with the Falling For You and  Cats and Bats paper packs and the Enchantment Color Palette Cardstock with a few of the Basic colors thrown in.  All the Cricut cuts are from current CTMH Cricut Cartridges.   No stamping this go around but I reserve the right to add some later.  If I do, I’ll share what I do.  The layout design was inspired by Ms. Carrie when I saw her layout posted.   I did change a few things around.

All of the triangles are either 2″x 2″ or 3″ x 3″ squares cut in half, corner to corner.  I created the borders around the pictures with them.  The leaves come from 3 different Cricut Cartridges.   The coffee cups and  sentiment “Enjoy the Little Things” come from the new Cricut You are Here.  Jeff and I love to visit different coffee shops, just to check things out.  We found a cute little one and we have some pictures of this.  I can’t wait to add them.  The rich colors from the Enchantment palette help make this page work.

Layer the leaves in the corner and put the coffee cup on top with 3D foam tape.  Use the gold shimmer brush on the title, “Coffee” (Artbooking alphabet).

Continue to layer the leaves around the sentiment.  Pop the sentiment up on 3D foam tape.  Use your Gold Shimmer Pen to color in the “Enjoy”.

You’ll need the following to create this:

Falling For You

Falling For You

The CTMH Special of the month is this awesome kit, From The Heart.  You can make these beautiful, elegant cards with the kit.  You can purchase additional card bases as well.  Best of all – no cutting – if you follow the kit!  Of course, as you can see above, I want rouge!

Still playing in the Fall 2017 Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop, I used the base of the kit to create this card.  The Falling For You paper pack works perfectly for this card and the blog hop.  The cute foxes and sentiments are from Sugar Pea Designs and they have matching dies to make your life a little easier.   The cuts are from a variety of CTMH exclusive Cricut Cartridges!

This is an interactive card so you pull the top and it opens up the bottom to share the “inside” of the card!  Too much fun, right?  You need the following products to create this card:

I wanted to create the look of things falling, like leaves, from the first sentiment.  These foxes are just too darn cute!  Pumpkin Spice Latte is my favorite fall drink so I had to have this stamp set.  I cut all the images from CTMH Cricut Cartridges.  It’s so easy to share the file with you all!

Because there are so many pieces to this card, I held off from adding other embellishments and used a shimmer brush as well as a gold gel pen for the buttons on the jacket and a green gel pen on the leaves.

Friends are better with coffee

Friends are better with Coffee

I’ve been working a crop all weekend and am just getting a chance to add to my blog.  This is my 2nd entry to the Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop.   This card is a combo of several different products/companies.  I was so lucky to win this cute stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh along with the great pink sequins.  I’m using the stamp set from the CTMH National Stamping Month Special CC1228 From the Heart to create the flowers on the top of the card.  I cut on of the acrlix stamps from the sentiment so that I just had the flowers.  The coffee cup is from the retired Jack Cardmaking stamp set and die.


I watercolored the flowers and the two friends with the CTMH Watercolor Pencils and our wonderful waterbrushes where you can have water in the brush so you don’t have to have a cup of water to rinse brushes off.  You know what a disaster a cup of water can be on a table where you are creating!  I wanted a fall look to the card so I added more orange and yellows to the flowers.  I used Fern ink pad on the leaves to get a more Autumn feel.  On the coffee ups, I used Liquid Glass to make the coffee look “wet”.

On the inside of the card, I used a sentiment from the SugarPea Designs and the sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

It’s In My Nature

It’s In My Nature

It’s time for the Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop!  Here’s my first card for this – “It’s in my nature”, featuring this super cute bear from the Jack Cardmaking (now retired), the Beary Christmas Paper, and CTMH Cricut Cartridge “You Are Here”!  This cartridge has several coffee cups on it.  =)   “Coffee” comes from Sugar Pea Designs.

I just could not resist pairing up the sentiment “It’s in my nature” with coffee.  Since it spoke about nature, I had to get the little bear stamp back out.  I used Sapphire to mat the background paper from Beary Christmas.  The bronze sequins are from the Falling For You Collection.  There is so much goodness in this new Seasonal Expressions!!   I’m headed out to vend at the Harbor Scrapbooking Crop event in PA today so I don’t have time to blog a lot about the card.  Here are a few more images:

Cats and Bats Workshop Your Way

Cats and Bats Workshop Your Way

Check out these 6 layouts you can create with the Cats and Bats WYW G1136.  These layouts are from the Studio Sus and you can get the directions for free when you purchase the WYW from my website!  I love that three of the layouts are about girlfriends, best days ever, and birthday party.  I’ve not completed the layouts because I need to get the pictures on them.  I’ll be using some of them for my birthday. =)

You’ll receive electronic copies of cutting directions, pictures for assembly, and a “the rest of the story” to create these awesome layouts.  No into Halloween?  Then remove the Picture My Life cards that are used as titles and replace them with photographs.  Use the backside of the papers are that are “non-Halloween”.

The colors of the Cats and Bats paper pack are fun.  You can see that I changed things up using Gypsy paper for some of the bases. I like the brightness and think adding a shade of purple in, makes things pop more.  Eggplant looks good as well.
