Let Me Make You an Offer (or 2) You Can't Refuse!

Have I ever mentioned just how much I love Love LOVE Close To My Heart?

Well, I do!

Here are two more awesome reasons why!

One for now:  Holiday Wishes!

When you place a minimum order of $25 in My Acrylix® stamp sets in November, you can purchase a new D-size Holiday Wishes stamp set for only $5! That’s significant savings off the full retail value of $17.95. And here’s a bonus: many of the images in the set coordinate with our Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge for added cutting and stamping fun! Offer valid November 1- November 30, 2011.

And an offer for later:  Rock the Block (I can't wait for this one!):

My Holiday Wishes is on it's way and I can't wait to show you what I create with it.  As for the Rock the Bock....  tapping my fingertips on the table..... If you want these amazing offers yourself, order them at my Close To My Heart site, Paper Boutique or contact me at

Starting to Feel a Lot Like Christmas

I know, it's too early for Christmas, right?  But for crafters it's a holiday we think about and plan for all year long.  We may not have our homes decorated the day after Halloween, but our minds are busy with ideas and plans!

With that in mind I am going to share some photos of my class projects for A Very Cricut Christmas I: Bags & Tags.  These were all assembled by my very talented daughter and fellow consultant, Alyssa.  Some items are from our Idea Book and others are her own creations.  Enjoy!

Dreamin' of a Paper Trail Blog Hop

Hi, and thank for stopping by! If you arrived from Terri's My Frame of Mind blog you are on the right path. If you are just getting started, enjoy!
This is the November Paper Trail blog hop and this month we are featuring "Dreamin'."  It's one of my favorite Level 2 Paper packs by Close to my Heart.  I love Love LOVE the rich fall colors and warm textures.

I have so much I want to share this month but I may have to do it in smaller blog bites. Lets get started with this:

I love making these boxes that feature four more little "drawers" inside.  They are so easy to make despite how complicated they appear.  This one was made as an auction item for the Highpoint Crop benefiting Operation Smile.  It would be great if you could join us!

I have to tell you, though, I got a little excited at the Detroit Regionals last month and gave it away to be auctioned off there.  Oops!  I can happily tell you it raised $65 for Operation Smile.  The great thing is I can make another for Highpoint!

Next up is Mary's Road to Peace of Mind or Escape? blog.  Enjoy your travels, these ladies have some great stuff to show you!
