So here is my friend Juli. She was the winner of my Open House door prize. Needless to say, she was a very happy camper (or scrapper, I guess)!! Her winnings included the Reflections How-To Book, a Perfect Day Level 2 Paper Pack, A Game stamp set, a Find Your Style stamp set and 2 packs of embellishments.
Our November Special is amazing! From now until November 30, you can purchase this beautiful, intricate Christmas stamp set called Holiday Wishes for only $5.00 with every $25.00 of My Acrylix stamps that you order. Isn't it beautiful?! Just think of the Christmas cards and projects you could make with this stamp set! You can order directly from my website or you can contact me directly to place your order.
Remember that you will be able to cut the images outlined in red on your Cricut machine using our Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. Just imagine - you could whip out your Christmas cards in no time this year which would leave you lots of time to relax and enjoy the season!
Here are some of the bags I made using our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. I had made several things so that I could show how versatile the cartridge is.
This first bag I made using the one found in the Idea Book on page 101 as my inspiration.
For this cute Santa bag, I was inspired by Mandy Leahy's bag which you can see here. Instead of using the fluff around the top, I applied glue to the white piece and used some flock. It's kind of hard to see in the picture, but it turned out good, I think. And for the buckle, I used my Versamark and some silver embossing powder to make it shiny.
This Halloween test tube holder wasn't made using the AP cartridge, but it was cute, so I thought I would make it! I found the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers here. You could actually use these instructions to make test tube gifts for any holiday or birthday.
This final bag was inspired by another CTMH consultant, Pamela O'Connor. In her version of the bag, she used one of our Kraft cards to make the bag. I didn't have any of those cards yet, so I improvised and used some of our Kraft paper and then just added a flap at the top.
I hope you enjoyed looking at all of my creations. If you have any questions about any of them, don't be afraid to ask I love to share!
Run and check out the 'While Supplies Last' section of my website as soon as you can. There have been some new things added such as some retired paper packs and some of our retired blocks. Check it out soon so you don't miss out! You can find that section HERE.
Here are some more pictures from my Open House a couple of weekends ago.
This first card was inspired by the one in the Idea Book on page 85. I loved the colors and the stamp set (Remarkable Wreath C1473) used in their card, but I didn't want to 'copy' it exactly, so I decided not to make a shaped card. The second card I made I really wanted to use the flowers from Hooray Bouquet (D1491) stamp set. I know I will have a lot of fun with this one. And it was super easy making the flowers by using the coordinating cuts on my Cricut with the Art Philosophy cartridge rather than cutting them out by hand!
I am having my first card class on Saturday, October 22 at 9:00 a.m. and Monday, October 24 at 6:30 p.m. I am having two different class times to accommodate a couple of schedules. You will make 18 cute little cards using our Elemental Paper Pack and several different stamp sets. All of the paper will be precut, so you will just stamp and assemble. The cost of the workshop is $15. If you would like to make these beautiful cards, call or e-mail me before Friday, October 14 so that I can order the supplies for you.
I had my Open House celebrating our new Idea Book (I know -- I'm a little late!) last Saturday. Over the next couple of days I will showcase some pictures of a few of the things that I made to showcase our beautiful new products.
First up is this beautiful card box. You can use it for cards, as a catchall on your dresser or desk, to hold special momentos/keepsakes, ect. I may be holding a workshop to make one of these before Christmas, so keep your eyes out for that. This box was inspired by the one found in the Idea Book.
The outside of the box was covered using our Sonoma paper packet. I didn't think I really liked this paper packet until I actually had the papers in my hand. It's beautiful! The flowers on top, as well as the label, were made using our Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. I really can't get enough of this cartridge! It has brought my Cricut new life! And don't you just love our new bling brads!
What is Blogtoberfest you ask?? Well, it was started by the amazingly talented Tresa Black (one of my idols and inspirations) from Fabulously Artsy. She created Blogtoberfest to challenge us to, as she puts it, 'step up' our blogs. She is going to be posting tips on improving your blog throughout the month. I must admit that I am not very good at posting on a regular basis. So, for the month of October, I am challenging myself to post at least 3 times a week. That my not seem like much of a challenge to you all, but believe me, it will be a challenge for me! Hopefully I will post something that teaches or inspires you somehow! Let me know if there is anything that you would like to see or learn and I will try to accommodate your request as best I can. You can join Blogtoberfest, too, or simply check out Tresa's amazing blog at Fabulously Artsy.
