Summer Fun Studio J layout

Have you wondered about digital scrapbooking??  Maybe heard me mention our Studio J online digital scrapbooking software that is free to try out and use, you only have to pay for your layouts when you order them.  Well check out this video that Close to my Heart Corporate office created showing Stacy making a fun "Gone Fishing" layout.  It shows you how easy it is to change your paper colors, both cardstock and B&Ts, as well as add some fun embellishments.  I'm sure we all have lots of fun summer pictures that we need to get scrapped, I know I do!  I've been playing around in Studio J myself, getting all creative making my calendar pages for the grandparents calendars for Christmas.  I'll have to post those soon!  Until next post, go try out Studio J & let me know if you have any questions! ;o)

Monthly Class Layout using Lucky & Cricut!

Last night I held my monthly scrapbooking class with a wonderful group of ladies.  It is always such fun to get together with them!  I let my Hostess of the month pick which paper pack they would like to use and this month's picked Lucky.  With the use of our new Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut so many fun things on the layout & I only had one stamped item, I feel almost as though I cheated on these layouts!  They came together so quickly & easily!  But I think the layout turned out cute and so did my ladies and that's what counts to me!  Here is the layout.
Supplies used:
Lucky Paper Pack
Lucky Level 2 Assortment Chipboard Accents
Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
Cardstock - Outdoor Denim, Sunset, Desert Sand, Colonial White, Olive
Milepost Shapes - Stars
Wooden Buttons
Unscripted stamp set

Let me know if you have any questions or would like to purchase any of the items used. 
Until next post...  happy scrappin'!

Convention's Saturday Crop

I finally finished my Convention - Create & Take from Saturday nights Crop!!  Woohoo, me!  Well, I had a good excuse, I didn't stay at the crop.  We were in Disneyland & my hubby and boys were up in the room waiting for me...  so we went to Disneyland instead!  I know Corporate completely understands on that one.  Why else would they book our Convention in the "Happiest Place on Earth" if not wanting us to bring our family & completely enjoy ourselves while there?!!  Plus, I had to get pictures printed before I could complete it!  It all sounds good, right?!!  :o)

Roxie "10 Things I Love About You" layout

This is the layout I made at Convention during one of our Create & Take classes using Roxie papers.  I'm a little behind on getting it posted.  And I still need to journal my "10 Things" on the tags.  I know they will be things like "You treat me like a princess!" and other mushy stuff like that, I just haven't written them down yet!

Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge Images

Here are all 700 of the images on Close to my Heart’s Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  I have to thank Lisa Stenz, a fellow CTMH Consultant for sharing all of these images!  With the Cricut Expression using the 12"x12" mat you can cut almost every image in 47 different sizes!  That’s almost 33,000 options, WOW!  Can you imagine how much 33,000 punches would cost?  Not to mention the storage space you’d need?  I don't know about anyone else, but my craft room is already so packed I don't need anymore punches.  I love that my new cartridge doesn't take up much space! 

Check out all of these great shapes including boxes, bags, tags, banners, borders, a font, cards, envelopes, flowers (3-D and flat), and all of the incredible images that coordinate with CTMH stamp sets!   

Click on the images to enlarge.

When you purchase the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, you’ll also receive three exclusive D-size stamp sets and three sets of Dimensional Elements (chipboard) designed to perfectly coordinate with images on the cartridge. That’s a retail value of over $120 for just for $99!  Remember all of those punches you would have to buy otherwise??  This really is a great deal! 

Go here to order your collection today!

Plus, when you order a minimum of $50 this month, and get the cute August Stamp of the Month - Wicked for only $5, you will also get a FREE A sized alphabet stamp set called A Typeface.
