Stonewall Resort Crop Openings!


I suddenly have several spaces available at my Stonewall Resort Crop February 9-11, 2018!!!! I'd LOVE to have you join our fun. The resort is a beautiful place to stay - all year round! 



You can even take advantage of the pool, gym, and spa to add a little self-pampering to your weekend! (Be sure to tell Santa you need a massage & facial!) 


Or you can spend the entire time in the ballroom cropping and let your family enjoy the resort and meet them for meals in the dining room! OR leave the family at home and spend the entire weekend with your girlfriends - because "girls just wanna have fun"! 

The choice is yours! Let me know if you are interested. You can get all of the details by clicking on the image below!

An Important Announcement for Cricut Users!

Provo Craft (the makers of Cricut) has recently made the decision to discontinue production of physical Cricut® cartridges. CTMH has been able to secure enough inventory of the most recent "You Are Here" collection to last us through the duration of our Annual Inspirations 2017–2018 idea book, but effective immediately, all CTMH Cricut® Collections that include a physical cartridge are available while supplies last.


Here is a portion of the announcement from the CTMH Home Office:
"Though we have made every effort to preserve this product offering for as long as possible, we have known that eventually physical cartridges would be phased out in favor of the digital business model, and have been taking steps to make the transition easier. We introduced digital-only collections as a way to encourage our customer base to make the switch; we have also introduced a Cricut® Explore Air 2 hostess bundle as an incentive for Consultants and customers alike to upgrade their Cricut® machines. Recently, we even started to include image numbers in our artwork recipes to make it easier to locate images in Design Space.
Tutorial videos are in the works that will help our Consultants and customers learn more about how to use Design Space and the newer Cricut® machines. We understand it can be challenging to learn a new system, but we also recognize the benefits that come from using the newer machines, including greater control over the creative process and increased flexibility in working Cricut® shapes into your artwork. Though we are sorry to see our physical cartridges go, we are excited about the possibilities available with our digital collections."


If you have an older Expressions machine and have been wanting any of the current CTMH (physical) cartridges, I would order them soon because they are only available while supplies last. Any future Cricut collections that CTMH comes out with will be digital only. On a personal note, I have been using the Explore machine since it first came out and I can honestly say that I prefer it over the older Expressions machine. It is much easier and cuts so much better. If you have any questions about this announcement or about how to use the Explore machine, feel free to ask. I will be happy to help. 

Here is a link to the current CTMH cartridges (both physical and digital) that are still available.

From the Heart Card inspiration!


I finally had some time to play with our new card kit yesterday. Here are a couple of cards I made. 

I used a sentiment on the front of this card from our new stamp set called Inspired Words (D1740). I know I will use this stamp set many times!



I added a gold glitter border using our new Thin Cuts Scallop border. 

On this second card I used gold embossing powder on the front and inside sentiments! I also used some markers to color the flowers and leaves on the inside sentiment.




The color combinations, theme and style possibilities with this set are endless!! Be sure to order yours while you can - and be sure to add on some extra cards to make more later!

Convention Roomie Gifts!

I'm on my way to Salt Lake City for our annual Close To My Heart Convention! So much excitement!

We have a tradition of making gifts for our roommates. This year I decided to purchase special lanyards for our name tags - heart themed of course!


I used our Base and Bling cards to hang the necklace/lanyard on and coordinated with a card featuring flowers from our Flower Market Cricut Cartridge.

I also used our Color of the Year "Sea Glass" which will be replaced with a NEW color. We will find out this week!

The card will have a hole punched in the top and tied to a Dark Chocolate heart from West Virginia's fabulous Holl's Chocolate!



After they eat the chocolate, the card can be attached to our brand new CONVENTION BAG so it will be easy to identify our bags in a sea of bags!

I'll have updates about exciting changes, retirements, and NEW ADDITIONS to our product line!!
Happy Creating!

Some Kinda Wonderful Workshop Your Way!

This month my club will be ordering the Some Kinda Wonderful kit that includes layouts and cards all in one kit!



You can add our pocket plus protectors to add even more photos to the third layout!

With your scraps you will have enough paper to create 9 cards - 3 each of 3 designs featuring the Some Kinda Wonderful Cardmaking stamp set and thin cuts!

I decided to change mine up by using the left over complements instead! I cut the paper pieces the same, just used a different stamp and left over embellishments!



You will also have extra pocket cards. Here is one that I used on a card!

Would you like to join the club and join the fun? Contact me for more information. Are you not local? You can still participate! Order the kit to make at home and participate in all of the rewards of being in the club! Contact me for more information.

The Some Kinda Wonderful Workshop Your Way kit includes everything you need! And this is the last month you can order from our Seasonal Expressions 1 book! Don't miss out!
