Walkin' in a Winter Wonderland... :0)

Good Morning everyone~
Today I wanted to share some artwork I created using the WONDERLAND Workshop on the Go Kit and the Cricut "Art Philosophy" Cartridge. I love, love, love not having to cut out all of these snowflakes by hand.... it makes life so much easier :)

The colors in this kit include Chocolate, Heavenly blue and Twilight.... so pretty together. And... this is one of the cards we will be creating at this month's Stamp Night. Enjoy!

Just a fun Christmas Card using the BELIEVE papers

Good Morning,

My sweet friend Wendy Coffman sent this card to me and I thought it was very creative. She used the BELIEVE papers, and then swiped our PEARL PAINT across the front of the whole card to give it a shimmery and festive feel. Her final touches included using the corner rounder on several of her square pieces of B&TP.  Her artwork always inspires me and I hope it inspires you too.

With a smile,

Believe Workshop on the Go Kit + the Cricut & Art Philosophy Cartridge

Good Morning,

Here are a couple of ideas for easy Christmas cards to create this season. 
These 2 cards were made by my sweet friend Nancy Reding and both feature the Art Philosophy Cartridge for the Cricut. 

On the first card, the ornament is cut out of Sky Blue Cardstock with the Cricut and makes the perfect accent to hold the Christmas Tree. 

On the second card, the Christmas Stocking was cut out using the Cricut. This card actually features NO stamping as the words are from the Zip Strip in the Believe Level 2 Paper Pack. Quick, Simple and Fun.
With a smile,

Believe Layout #2 for you Scrapbookers!

Good Morning,

This is another one of the layouts my monthly club members will be creating in November. The kit is from Believe and features Tulip, Sweet Leaf and Sky colors. I really like this color combination, and am not sure I would have come up with it myself. It's so festive. Layout #3 is coming in a few days, I promise.

Believe Layouts for you Scrapbookers!

Good Morning~

I still have more items created from the BELIEVE paper pack to share...I told you I was having fun with this paper. And this time, I thought I should share some I share some scrapbook pages.  

This is the first of three layouts my monthly scrap club members will make. Each month I create a 6-page scrapbooking kit (3 double page, 12x12 layouts) from one of our Level 2 Paper packs and coordinating My Stickease, along with accessories. I pre-cut all the materials and then we either create together as a group, or I ship out kits to my long distance clubbers. 

The beauty of this club, is that members are creating at least 3 scrapbook pages a month to add photos too.... and that adds up to 36 double page layouts a year (or 72 pages!!).

Now for some of you, that might not be a lot, but for others, who are procrastinators.... that might be a ton! I just want everyone to get their photos off of their computer and into an album, and these kits help that to  happen. 

To see past kits or to get more information AND inspiration, visit my Scrapbook Workshops blog. That is where I post all of the kits, and in more detail!!

Let me know if you have any questions or would like to receive these kits by mail. 
With a smile, Tina

Believe Workshop on the Go Kit - Cricut Fun!

Good Morning~

In keeping with the theme... I thought I would share another item I made using the BELIEVE Level 2 Paper Pack. There is no stamping at all on this item... even the words around the top come right from the papers. Fast, Simple and Fun!

This little cutey was made using a 6x12 pices of B&TP, cut out by the Cricut. 

The template for this bag is found on the ART PHILOSOPHY cartridge by CTMH.

After cutting it out, I simply added a border around the top, along with the Zip Strip from the B&TP and a big bow from our Sweet Leaf Ribbon. You could easily add a gift tag and fill this little guy up with all kinds of things. With a smile, Tina

Believe Workshop on the Go Kit - Card #2

Good Morning,

Today's card is another card everyone will be creating at my "Ladies Night Out" class. It too features the BELIEVE Workshop on the Go kit, but also incorporates the use of the Cricut. 

The poinsettia was cut out using one of the flower images from the Art Philosophy Cartridge, in 4 different sizes. So simple to do, and such a nice 3-D effect. 

I stamped every other flower, glittered one of the flowers, and curled the edges to give it this festive, and fun look. Please don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions.  Enjoy! Tina

Welcome to the start of the Holiday Season!!

It's officially here... at least in my mind. Halloween has come and gone and November marks the beginning of this wonderful time of year. I really really really do enjoy what this season brings, and I hope you guys do too. A lot of memories get made at this time each year, and I am here to help you create more, or remember those you have already made.

But for today, I wanted to share Close To My Hearts special for the month of November. It is a brand new, only available THIS month, "Holiday Wishes" stamp set. The retail price is $17.95 but everyone can purchase it for just $5 with any $25 order in Stamps. 

And... its cumulative. So, if you wanted to get a head start on some holiday gifts, you can get multiples of this set. And... to make it even more fun... almost every stamp in this set coordinates with a shape cut out with the NEW Art Philosophy cricut cartridge. How's that for Faster, Simpler and Easier. Feel free to email me with any questions.

With a smile,
