Happy Monday!!!! 🙂 It is gray and dreary here, so I have spent the day working on my next workshop. I LOVE rainy summer days!
So – in the meantime, here is a fun project that I created using 4×4 tiles (from the local hardware store), a roll of cork (from Michaels), liquid glass (to adhere the cork to the tile) and black vinyl. Of course, the most important part of the whole project is the Cricut Explore!! Continue reading →
I am SOOOO excited to share this project with you – it has been on my To Do list since August! LOL One of my dearest friends,Melissa Laverty, shared her idea with us at CTMH Convention in Disney World for using the new My Creations Kraft 3-Ring Binder as a way to store all of your Christmas photo cards. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE seeing the faces of my friends and family – not just at Christmas, but all year long. So, I took Melissa’s idea and created a photo binder to store ALL my photo cards – whether birthday, birth announcements, graduation, Wedding, or Christmas! All my favorite photos in one place and on display in my home. Continue reading →

I have been really excited to play with our new Designed Decor Black Frame – so here it is!
Hi everyone! I had to make a gift for a special 13 year old girl last week. Her favorite color is purple, and I was told her room was pink, purple and white. Come to find out, it’s actually lime green and pink – but hey, what’s a crafty mom to do?? LOL I shopped through my stash and found some of our old Sweetheart paper (leftover from a workshop) and a 9×9 box and started to craft away. I used the Artiste Cricut Cartridge for the 3-D flowers, stem, and her name. Have you tried our new quilling tool (Z1795) yet for the flowers???? It’s $7.95 and a MUST HAVE when rolling those flowers. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! I added some white ric rac ribbon, sheer white ribbon and a rhinestone brad (Z1360 $5.95) to the Dimensional Element B (Z1655 $3.25). Last but not least – I blinged the whole thing out with the Bling Assorment (Z1466 $4.95) and Sparkles (Z1752 $2.95). Liquid Glass (Z679 $6.95) is an AWESOME adhesive for this project! I used it attach the ribbon, bling buttons, and dimensional flowers.
And – the very best thing about this whole project… Bailey loved her one-of-a-kind gift! 🙂
Make something SCRAPTABULOUS – because CUTE matters!
In case you haven’t noticed yet, I have a new tagline: Make something Scraptabulous – because CUTE matters! It may sound a little strange at first, so let me explain…. At our CTMH Dallas convention in July, we had the privilege of listening to the fabulous Stacy Julian as our keynote speaker. I know – how lucky were we?? LOVE HER!!! Stacy was so passionate and real, I could have listened to her all day. (Tangent – she used to be a CTMH consultant, how cool is that?) One of her points that resonated with me like a GONG was the simple phrase – Cute Matters. Now, I’m not sure if it’s because of my chemical engineering background or the thriftiness that comes with being a stay at home mom, but my focus has always been on the basics. Food, shelter, clothing. Money is spent on things like a furnace or a roof and clothing for my growing kids. In my mind, cute was a bonus, not a necessity. It wasn’t until we sold our house last year that I realized how much cute matters! I spent three weeks staging my home – I purchased all new bedding, drapes, rugs, lamps, and accessories. After 13 years in our first home – I finally LOVED it! And we sold it. In three days. Stacy talked about how when we see something cute, we *feel* cute! Whether you focus on one wall in your home or an entire room, we all need to create our cute spot. A place where your heart can be happy and you can feel special and creative and cute. When we feel good inside, life is so much better! So, in keeping with the phrase cute matters, I’m so excited to give you a sneak peek at one of our new home decor elements in the Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book – our Workshop on the Go Scroll Album Kit!!!! Cute doesn’t have to take a long time or be expensive – this project will take you under 2 hours and is priced at $35.95!!
