Card Class ~ Or Get Kit Mailed To You!

I put together a card kit for a class I have scheduled for March 5th at 1:00pm. If you are local (La Mesa, Ca.) and would like to come to the class to make the kit (the paper is pre-cut, you'll need to stamp, color, and cut a few of the pieces) let me know so I can make sure to have enough kits cut. The cost for the class is $10 and you will be making 1 of each of the cards in the photo. 

If you are not local but would like to make the card kit I can mail you the kit (I'll do the stamping for you). The cost for the kit to be mailed is $15 (or you can pick up the kit for $10 if you can't make the class and are local).

It's always good to have a few cards on hand...to be ready when you need them.

Want A Project You Don't Have To Stamp? Just Use Stickers! Easy And Fun!

I thought today I'd share a Close To My Heart product line that you might not know about. It's called "Fundamentals". You are going to love these paper packs...and the stickers / assortments that match them! 


The paper packs are $19.95 (there are 4 different color groups you can choose from). In each pack you receive 20 double-sided 12x12 sheets...2 each of 10 designs (one side has a glossy pattern). These packs are great for just about any project you are planning to work on...scrapbooking, cards, tags, home d├ęcor...yep, all of the projects you are planning on doing. And, since it has stickers and assortments that match, it makes doing the projects easy and fun!

Sympathy Card Made For Family

I thought today I'd share a card I made for my family (my Uncle passed away a few days ago and I wanted to let my Aunt and cousins know I was thinking of them...I'm not able to go to Philly to see them). I used the card design from one of the Charlotte wyw kit cards and just changed it a bit to fit what the card needed to be. The stamp set (for the words) I used is retired but we have a few for sale that would work too if you need to make a sympathy card. I also changed the ribbon to be just black. The flower is from the Springtime Wishes (C1641) stamp set. I was really sad to hear this news...and hate having to make these type of cards...but it's important to send your love at a time like this.

Loving My New Everyday Life Mini Album / Planner!

I thought today I'd share the "Everyday Life" planner / my crush album. You can use it as a planner or as an album. You can buy the planner pages (Z3209) and get yourself, your business, and/or your family more organized...or you can buy the memory protectors (Z3192 and Z3191) and make it into a my crush (Z3210) mini album (some people are even using it for both). The album (Z3208) is black with pretty gold flowers on the front. I decided to add a little more to decorate my album. I thought I'd share it to give you ideas for when you order your album. Tell me what you think?!

Sharing A Simple Card Idea ~ You Can Change It To Fit Any Holiday Or Theme

I thought today I'd share the Valentine's Day card I made for hubby. I gave it to him with a little gift (it was a small shovel with a bag of jelly beans, with a tag that said "I dig you"). I didn't get a photo of the gift, just the card. I forgot to take a photo and he's eaten a bunch of the jelly beans already. I used my Cricut cartridges "Artbooking" (Z3169) and "Art Philosophy" (Z3171) to make the cuts. The card wasn't fancy. I like simple, clean designs. I also added my favorite CTMH product "Shimmer Trim". I love this stuff. I figured I'd share this cute idea...you never know when you'll need a simple card.
