Life Going Too Fast?

Does it seem like life is going to fast to scrapbook?  We have filled our life with so many things that it is important to make sure that we have documented our important events in our life.  
So last week, I jumped on and created some layouts.  

These layouts go FAST!  You can add as much or as little as you want.  You can choose from our Express Collection or Customize your Own layouts.
Then you just upload your photos, pick a paper pack (kit), pick a pattern and start creating!  It's that easy!  
What I REALLY love about this is that you don't have to print your pictures or even have the correct size.  You simply drop it in the photo area and then you can resize it or move the photo to get just the right shot.  LOVE IT!

And now the pictures are DONE!  I double checked everything and clicked purchase and DONE!  Within 5 minutes the jpegs arrived in my in box and I can now put them on my this.  The actual layouts come in the mail within 10 days, but I can share these with anyone NOW.  

If you would like to check these out, simply go to my website and click on the Studio J tab.  You will need to set up an account (if you don't have one) and go play!  It doesn't cost you anything unless you want to purchase the layouts.  Check it out!  I think you are going to like what you see!

More Halloween Ideas

I have been busy creating fun things for Halloween.  Here is our (Close to my Heart) cupcake box.  I saw this one at our convention and had to recreate it and make it my own.  I put a battery operated candle in it.  Too cute!

Then this is a box of chocolate covered raisins...and I made a BIG bat card from the Artiste cartridge...and I made it "hug" the box.  I love this idea.  It came from Michelle Snyder.  

So get creating and using your supplies!!!

Close to my Heart's NEW Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge

I have finally had a chance to play with our NEW Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge!  It is soooo fun!  
I recently held a 3 day weekend with my downline and thanks to one of them (Brenda Thacker) I was able to stamp lift and learn a little more about using it!!  HOW FUN ARE THESE!!

This haunted house is on page 44.  I also added the ghost to the font and honey cardstock behind the windows and tada!  I am also going to make this into a scrapbook layout...stay tuned!

Here's another card.  It is on page 43.  Then look below...that is the inside!  

WOWSA...All these cards are in layers.  So I cut out the tree, cut out the purple piece and then cut out the haunted house.  This is a pop up card.  Very fun!

Then this card page 44. It cuts out the bags..and I then backed that piece with black to make them stand out, added a spider web from page 43...then the Eat, Drink And be Scary is from page 44.  I backed it with our Purple shimmer trim. 

Here is an EASY one.  It is from page 44.  It cuts out the candy corn kissed and then I just backed it with colors of a candy corn.  AND, I also colored our black ribbon on these too.  I am LOVING our markers to color our ribbon!!  It gives me the ribbon color I want, without having to purchase a TON or ribbon.  YEA!

It's time to get your cartridge and start creating!!!

Cute Bat Banner

I have been playing with our Artiste Cricut Cartridge and came up with this idea!  I cut the bat card on page 76.  And instead of using them for a card, I decided to hang them upside down, because bats do that!  LOL Gave them some pipe cleaner legs and hung them from a piece of rope.  How cute are they!

Then...I took some of our black stripe ribbon and one of our new makers and colored it!  I used marigold marker on this one.

And then on this ribbon I used both marigold & lavender markers.

It is super cute and VERY get our your Close to my Heart Cricut Artiste Cartridge and start creating for the spooky time of the year!  And, if you don't have this me and I will be happy to order it for you,  OR, you can head over to my website and get it ordered!
