Another birthday card!

So, here's another birthday card I made for my sweet friend since the 6th grade! The only thing that I wasn't happy with was that you can see my adhesive through the vellum. ...grrrrrrrrrrr!  I realized it only after I had already adhered the happy birthday font on and there was no way I could get it off without ruining it.....but I added the lace adhesive to cover up the top part, LOL! Oh, well. ...life goes on, right? Most everything I used was Close To My Heart....love their patterned papers!!! Anyways, thanks for stopping by. ....hope you have a blessed week!

My First Close to my Heart Card!

Hey Bleeps (blog peeps)!

I'm becoming more and more excited with being a Close to my Heart consultant!! I used their products on my card below, my first CTMH card...YIPPE!!! Yay me, LOL!!!

Kept it super simple, no stamping...but used my Cricut Explore for the scalloped topped tag and the white doily which were free images....so fun!!! I used a few stuff from my stash; but the sparkle trim (which is adhesive backed), chipboard sentiment, flower embellishment (which is also adhesive backed) and the patterned scrapbooking paper are all from CTMH and came in my starter kit!!!!

So, if your curious about CTMH, why don't you take a peek at my new online store (click the shopping basket below). You just might find something you can't live without, LOL!!!

So, did you know that if you join CTMH for the month of April....you get to choose an Exclusive CTMH Cricut Bundle for FREE????

Excited to Share My NEW Crafting Job with you!!!

Hey Bleeps (Blog Peeps!)

The wait is over and I can now share my brand new crafting business with you all!!! I have decided to join Close To My Heart as a consultant!!! That's right, I couldn't stay away from paper crafting any longer, LOL!!!

As many of you know, I was a SU! demo for 5 years....what I missed most of all was getting together with other like minded crafters and creating/teaching!!! I need that so much and didn't realize how much I would miss it!!! Yes, there are stresses to it....getting ready for parties/get togethers....having to prep projects for several peeps and toting supplies from one house/place to another. BUT, the fellowship part is soooo worth it!!! I miss crafty peeps what can I say!!!

Why did I choose Close To My Heart? It's easy....CRICUT...yelp, they have matching coordinating product bundles with Cricut Cartridges...three to choose from!!! Oh, and they provide you with a FREE Website to help build your business and receive orders.....and you get 22% of the sales from any orders you get!!! Totally cool in my book, LOL!!! 

I have sold sooo much of my Stampin' Up! stuff so I could invest in this new endeavor!! I was able to get the new Cricut Explore Machine (a few years ago I sold my Cricut Expression). Now, I can start playing with the CTMH coordinating bundle sets!!! SOOO, exciting!!! Their products are AWESOME...I love their clear stamps and the storage cases....everything matches perfectly!!! I had no idea that they have been in business for over 30 years either!!!! One thing I really like too are their ink pads, very cool!!! I can't wait to start having clubs/classes/workshops again!!! Contact me if your interested in having fun, I live in Texas now....so let's papercraft together!!! ;)

Today, April the 1st 2014 starts an AWESOME SAUCE of a deal when you join Close To My Heart!! It's only $99 for your starter kit....which is chalk full of products (several stamp sets, embellishments, paper, clear stamp blocks and bulk items as well as some business stuff!!!!!)....BUT, not only do you get all of that...from now until April 30, 2014 you will also get to choose from one of the Cricut Bundles I was telling you about!! Yelp, that's right....for FREE!!! Each one of these exclusive Close to my Heart Cartridge Bundles have over 700 images to play with on your Cricut machines!!! The possibilities are endless!!!
