Today I want to show you how much I love our Artbooking cricut cartridge! It is so worth the price! I love how they give you coordinating stamps and chipboard! The first mini album that I made during Christmas time didn't feel sturdy to me so I put my recycling (hoarding) tendencies in action! I began cutting all of my food boxes and saved them!
Below you will see my favorite cereal and how I used her as a base for my album pages!  Each album page has a piece of cardboard glued onto the cardstock to make it stronger.  Our Liquid Glass works perfectly and once both sides of cardstock are glued to the box you can't even tell! Love!!!
When you set the dial onto the album size (this one is 8') everything on that page will cut accordingly to fit that 8' page. So nice!


This mini album was made for my Mother In Law who went to Costa Rica last year!  She loved the Album and I can't wait to see her pictures added to the pages! If you would like a class or would like to order one of our famous Cricut Cartridges, click on my website and purchase them today!
Love and happy Crafting!

The Month of February is one crazy month for us!  We have so many birthdays and we have many friends as well that celebrate a birthday this month!  My Son's birthday was on the 4th along with my mother!  It was a special day for us but an overwhelming special day for her!  Then my oldest daughter, Kayla, will be 16 on February 13th!  Wow 16!!!  I don't know why time has to move so fast!  My niece Allie is celebrating her birthday today!  It also marks the anniversary of our sweet Granny's death.  February is a month of many joyous and sad occasions for me!

This past year Max has become more fascinated with my Cakes that I bake. He is always helping in the kitchen and loves each cake I make!  So this year I let him decide what theme and cake he would like for his special day!  Spiderman was his first pick!  So Spiderman it is!!!

I made a fast banner for him using my Art Philosophy Cartridge for my cricut!  This cartridge has over 700 images and you would be amazed how many different ways to use each image.  I needed to make Spiderman's head and immediately thought of the egg cut on the cartridge!  Perfect!  My loving Daughter Kayla has a talent with art! So I had her draw the face!  She's so talented!  Then we made little handle bags using my white daisy cardstock from CTMH for the gift bags! 

It was a last minute decision to make all of it, and we did it 4 hours before the party!  So anything is possible with your Cricut!!  I love that machine!!!

If you would like to order the Art Philosophy cartridge or the Artiste cartridge from CTMH please go to You'll be so happy you did!!!

Happy New Year!!!  I am so excited for this year to start off great!  Last year I had many ups and downs. I'm looking forward to living better and doing better in 2013!  I plan on making more crafts and hopefully will start making something new every day!  I started the New Year with making cute little hair bows for my Baby Girl, Ruby!  Sadly she still hates them, but I can only wish one day soon she will love them! 

New Year Resolutions?! I usually hate making new year resolutions because I never follow through with them!  I would love to know how many people actually keep them!  I want to make one that I know will help me this year! Focus on my business with Close To My Heart! This year I will make a monthly resolution and strive to do my best in sales!  I will also make sure to get out more and focus on making new friends that love making crafts and those that love scrapbooking!

And what a great time to start!  The new Spring/Summer Catalog is coming out next month and it is amazing!  I couldn't stop saying WOW when I turned each page with amazement!  So many beautiful colors and so many different ways to use their paper.  It's not all about layouts anymore!  Which I love because I adore making crafts with CTMH paper!  The quality is perfect and I'm never disappointed! 

If you would like to join with me in selling Close To My Heart, please contact me!  You don't even need to live in the same town or state as me to join my Team! I have an amazing Upline Director, Christine Adams, that is full of wonderful talents!  She has been a true blessing to me! 

We have two different consultant kits now available, Essentials and Master!  The Essentials kit is only $49 (approx. $130 retail value) and the Master kit is $99 (approx. 280 retail value). The Master kit includes everything in the Essentials Kit plus more supplies and 5 Studio J Layouts.
I can't wait to hear from you! 
Happy New Year to each of you!
