Sweet Heart Gift

Do you know anyone that likes chocolate? Here is an easy gift to make. And you know Valentine's Day is coming up fast!

First I used our My Creations Card box (Z1647 $4.95).
6 1/4 x 4 1/4 plaid b&t from Roxie 
6 1/4 x 1 Plaid 
6 1/4 x 2 Tulip cardstock times 2 
2 x 4 1/4 Tulip cardstock times 2 
1 3/4 x 4 1/2 plaid times 2 
1 x 3 1/2 zebra b&t times 6 
6 circles 1 1/4" of linen b&t 
I sponged the edges of the box with black.
The heart doily is 4" - it is on our Cricut Cartridge. The "chocolates" are the chinese take put boxes also from the Cricut Cartridge. Those are cut at 3" & 2 1/2". I took some of our stripe
ribbon to go on some of the "chocolates" and the white squiggles are made with our liquid appliqué. When you are making the chinese boxes, fold the top flaps in and adhere. Then glue them on the box upside down using liquid glass! How fun is this!

Here is the inside. I used Reese's peanut butter cup for the round ones, Ghiradelli squares (on the right) and nuggets (top left).
It's a fun and inexpensive gift for that special chocoholic in your life!

Wonderland Gift

Here is a gift that I sent to my friend Julie in Colorado! HI JULIE! lol

I used one of our My Creations cubes (Z1152 $4.95). I cut the top off and then decorated it using our Wonderland paper! I put some scrunchy paper in it, with a bag full of color
coordinating candy! It was fun to decorate! And hopefully fun to get!

When you are looking to give gifts, remember to give homemade gifts! They are the best!

Make Your Own Christmas Tags!

Need some quick is a great idea for making your own tags using our Cricut Cartridge.

I did make my tags this year...I know I am crazy...but it was a couple weeks ago when life wasn't so crazy! LOL I matched my tags to the wrapping paper! I found this GREAT wrapping paper and knew I could create matching tags.

I simple loaded up the Cricut, selected my image and set "auto fill" and it cut a whole page! Then I assembled them when I was on hold, or on a call...whenever I could multi task! It worked great. Then I stamped To/From with our white pigment ink and I will write the names using our white marker. Very fun!

Rock the Block

I posted the video in my last blog are my Rock the Block pictures. They are very fun to play with.

On my blocks I put a picture on all 6 sides. Now, I like how it turned out, but to do it all over again, I think I will just put pictures on 2 sides of the blocks. If you set it up at an angle, you are good, but if you lay them down like on a table, then you see the sides of the blocks and the other pictures. So, I will only put pictures on 2 sides next time.

These blocks will be in our New Spring Summer catalog (coming February 1st...YIPPEE) for $14.95...but if you get this special you can get the blocks, tray AND the E size stamp set for just $15 with a $25 purchase.

So remember to add this to your next order!!!


I am so sorry that I have been Missing in Action lately. So much to do, so little time! I know you all know what I mean! But I THINK I am done Christmas shopping, wrapping and all gifts are mailed that need to be mailed! WHEW! Now it is time to post to my blog!

I wanted to tell you about our Rock the Block special! Watch this cool video that CTMH made for us. It is so cool.

Here's what you get...simple purchase $25 in products from now until the end of January and get the blocks with tray ($14.95 value) and an E size stamp set ($29.95) for just $15! This is an amazing deal!

December/January Close to my Heart Special

Our Rock the Block special starts December 19th - January 31. It is so cool. Here is what you get. You get an E size stamp set ($29.95 value) and our My Creations Collage Cubes (blocks) that contain 9 blocks and tray. As you can see in the picture above you can cut your picture and add the embellishments on all 4 sides! Want to see what I did with mine? You will have to wait just a bit longer. I am still working on mine! LOL

So you ask, how do you get it? It's easy. Simply place an order of just $25 or more from our current catalog (Autumn/Winter 2011) and get both the stamp set and block with tray for just $15! WHAT A DEAL. They tell us the blocks are a sneak peak at our Spring/Summer 2012 catalog (can't wait to see that catalog!). So if you fall in love with these blocks, you will be able to purchase even more starting in February! But don't delay! You will want to get this set now. I don't think you will be able to get this stamp set in the new catalog. It is a set only available for this special.

So get your order put together, either call me with it or email me and I will get this order for you starting December 19th!

Add Some Glitz to Your Layout

Here is a layout that I re-created based on one our corporate office did. It is using our Believe paper pack and our Flurries Dimensional Elements. They are chipboard snowflakes that I put some of our Stardust Glitter Glitz Gel on. I just LOVE how it makes those snowflakes glitter.

I also used our Snow Flurries stamp set (page 74 of the current catalog) to make it look like the cold wind blowing over the paper. I just stamped it in our white pigment ink, put some clear embossing powder over it and then heat set it. I also edged the paper with the white stamp pad to give it a little extra snow. I really am hoping that is the ONLY snow we get this year.

Now I have a little snow storm going on in my pages. LOL I hope to not be able to put pictures on this page for a while! LOL Maybe I better look in last years pictures and add them to this layout.
