Happy December 1st!!!

It's so hard to believe that we are already in the last month of 2012.  They years go faster and faster!
With a whole month of festivities planned...I also get to look forward to the next new CTMH catalog that we should receive shortly after Xmas!!!   With that comes the retirement list of items that will no longer be available.  A fellow CTMH consultant, Alissa Chilton, put together this great file with pictures of the retiring stamp sets... Enjoy!

Retiring Items List!

The retiring items list has just been released by Close To My Heart. All items on the retiring list are only available while supplies last, effective immediately.  If some of the retiring items are on your wish list, I recommend ordering sooner, rather than later!  Consider them an early Christmas present to yourself....or wrap them up and put them under the tree!  Here is a list and pics of the retiring stamp sets...

Workshop for October 20th!


We are heading into our busiest and most fun time of year!  Wouldn't it be great to have your Halloween layouts ready for pictures? I like having two double page layouts... when do you ever have enough room for all of your pictures on only one 2 page spread? I am starting to incorporated the "C" embellishments that go with each kit. For $25 you will have 4 pages and a full pack of the accompanying embellishments.  

The first layout is a modified version of the Workshop on the Go by Karen Pedersen. She added a few extra pieces of paper to an already great layout. 


The second layout is one that I adapted from our newest publication Make it From Your Heart. It has 48 pages of GREAT layouts and cards for only $7.95.

I will post pictures of the card class later in the week.  Hope you can make it!

September classes

We had such a great time at our September class.  I'm sorry it took so long to post the pictures...I've been preoccupied with "Baby" watch.  Shauna isn't due for another 2 weeks, but she was early with Devon and all of the signs point to A BABY'S COMING!!!  We also found out that Kristen is carrying a BOY!  So our numbers are growing!  We are so blessed!

OK...on to stamping....sorry!  First, here are the cards we made.

The CTMH Cricut cartridges sure make it easy to make nice cards!  I used it for all of the cards....
The scarecrow is in with the September SOTM, and I matted him with a scalloped rectangle (cricut). The cupcake card is cased from Tresa Black, also cut from the Cricut CTMH Artiste cartridge.  The life is good card is using the special stamp set from the September promotion and the pinwheel and scallop border again from the cricut.  The leaf card uses our wooden shapes and cuts from the cricut again.....

Next are the two layouts using the Dotty for you paper special.

Our next class will be Saturday, October 20th at 9:30 am.  I hope you can join us!!!

CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge

 Good Morning!

Don't you love seeing what is inside of a Cricut cartridge BEFORE you buy it?  This great file shows each page of both books that come with the Cricut CTMH Artiste cartridge.

It takes a while to get through all of these pages!  There are so many great cuts. 
Thank you Melanie Brown for posting this!  Let me know if you have any questions...
