August 4th class samples!

I missed the layouts for last month all this month I have TWO!  Sometimes (most of the time) a 2 page layout is just NOT enough.  For the next two months, I will have 2 sets for you to do using the Dotty for You paper packs.  You can choose one or do both...just let me know.  I have to thank my fellow CTMH consultant from Canada, Julie Carriere for sharing her layout designs with us!

  Here are the three cards and adorable cupcake box that I cut out using our new Cricut Artiste cartridge.  My upline Cindy Baker designed this and was so nice to share with us!

Hope to see you next month!

CTMH convention in Dallas!!!

We sure had a great time in Dallas for the yearly CTMH convention.  So many great ideas floating around in my head.  I can't wait to get my new things to play with!  To start.... here's the NEW...

Idea Book 

The new Idea Book will go live on my website on August 1st and it is jam-packed with over-the-top new products and artwork!  If you would like your own copy of the Idea Book, you are more than welcome to stop by for a free one.  If you'd like one mailed to you, just email me at
Autumn/Winter Idea my blog on August 1 for it to go live!

One of my favorite new products: 
We have a brand new Cricut Collection called Artiste and it is, in my not-so-humble opinion, the best cartridge on the market today...for so many reasons!   With 700 exclusive images, the cartridge features themed projects, interactive cards, awards, and more! From robots and spooks to wedding and Valentines, your cupcake liners, invitations, and party favors will coordinate and quickly come together for any celebration!
CTMH/Cricut Artiste Collection
  • Cutting and assembling the MANY 3-D items is a snap using the projects reference chart.
  • There is a separate step-by-step assembly book. 
  • Each key has items that work together. For instance, if there are things that work together, they are on the same key. If they layer with each other: same key. Get the idea?  
  • Many keys are themed for different things. For instance: wedding, birthday, space, etc.  
  • If you have your 'Real Dial Size' off, all layering pieces will automatically cut to fit the bottom image, without having to resize.  
  • Many of our new stamp sets coordinate with this cartridge. As you go through the new Idea Book (which will go live here on my blog on August 1), you will see many sets that have images that are outlined in red. Those items coordinate with Cricut images. It will specify which cartridge (Artiste {the brand new one} or Art Philosophy). When you receive your stamp set, you will see that it also tells you what size to cut the image as well as which page to find it on in the instruction book.

When you purchase the CTMY/Cricut Artiste Collection, you’ll get:
1 - Cartridge (with 700 exclusive images including themed projects, cards, font, shapes, cupcake liners, accordion and rolled flowers, and TONS of 3-D boxes, purses, and other items)
3 - new D-Sized coordinating stamp sets
3 - sheets of coordinating chipboard shapes (with speech bubbles, a mini album, and lots of banner shapes)
1 - project reference guide
1 - step-by-step assemble book

Other New Products:
With over 60 new stamp sets, 8 new paper kits, 13 new Workshop on the Go kits, over 50 new accents, accessories and tools (from new stamp scrubbers, to organizational items, to bling and new chipboard home-decor items), 6 new Studio J Express Collections, a new publication with card and layout patterns, and even will just be brimming with excitement, just like I am! I'm tellin''s a treasure trove of goodies! I can hardly wait for you to see it!
