4 Cards | Cricut Artistry Bundle

Hey guys!!

As I mentioned in yesterday’s video, I hadn’t played with the Perfect Picture stamp set from the Artistry Bundle.  Well, I changed that!  I figured out what I needed to do to create with those cuts and I tried it out with 4 VERY simple cards.

Here is the video for you!



Or watch it on YouTube.


And here are the cards.  I kept them simple for the sake of time, but once you create the base, you can go crazy.  As an after thought, I added the flowers from the set on the one card!!







Want to make your own?  Order the Artistry Bundle today!!


This will also qualify you for the Stamp of the Month – Framed, which is only available through this week!  Grab it now.  It has to be one of my favorite sets in awhile!

Playing with the Cricut Artistry Bundle

Hi friends!!  TGIF!! 

This was our first full week of school (minus us skipping to go to the dentist yesterday. Boo) and we all survived.  Thankfully we have a free weekend at home to gather ourselves!!

I’ve been playing with my Cricut when I have time, and I’m SO IN LOVE with this baby! 

I shared the Cricut Artistry Bundle last week and today I’m sharing some of the small things I’ve been trying out with it!! 

Enjoy today’s video!!



Or watch HERE on YouTube. 


Here is some stills of the puppy card I shared with you on the video.  I did use the background and I’ll share that later next week.

I’m still new to this stuff, so I didn’t save this project to share with you!  However, I think I’ve figured out how to save that for you to create the same things!!  Oh technology! 




Don't forget to order you Artistry Bundle today!!


Tomorrow, I’ll be sharing with you a few more creations!! 

Stop back! 

Elegant Happy Birthday | August Stamp of the Month

Hi friends!! 

One last card with the August SOTM.  It’s only available until the 31st!!  SHOP HERE NOW to pick yours up today!!

815sotm birthday

I know this card was saved in the recesses of my mind, and when I saw the new Shimmer Trim, I wanted to create this super elegant card and made a bow.  I stamped the images in Slate on some grey cardstock.  That top image is one of my FAVORITEs from the new catalog.  I can’t wait to share it with you on Sept. 1st!!  I also stamped the frame in Slate ink and the Happy Birthday with white ink. 

To create the bow, I attached the shimmer trim to the front of the card, then I added a loop of trim, without peeling off the backing.  Then I added a straight piece and dove tailed the ends.  I wrapped some around the middle to hold it all together. 

I think I need to get this on video for you, but I really wanted to try it out once!! 


Don’t forget to get the Framed stamp set!!

And check out my Workshop On the Go Club!!  Sign Up today!

We are off to the dentist today.  Blech.  Then tomorrow night is our first peek at Friday Night Football!  YAY.... 

Have a great weekend everyone!!

August Stamp of the Month

Hi guys!

I’ve got a couple more cards for the August Stamp of the Month : Framed


These are both some very simple cards. For the Thanks card, I stamped the sentiment in Glacier and the frame in Slate inks.  I ran the Glacier cardstock through my Big Shot with an older stripe embossing folder.  I added some gray cardstock with the ends dove tailed behind the frame.  And added the finishing touches of the gems. 

These would be simple to recreate!

815sotm thanks

This one was even easier.  I stamped this fun pattern (stamp set coming Sept. 1st) in Slate ink of grey cardstock.  Then I added it with some of our new Aqua Shimmer Trim.*  It adds just a snap of color and shimmer!  LOVE IT!!

The sentiment is stamped in Sorbet ink and frame in Slate.  Then I added some enamel gems to the side of the frame just to make it pop a bit more! 

815sotm for you

Super quick cards to show off the Framed stamp set. 

Make sure you grab your stamp set today!!  Shop HERE

*Aqua Shimmer trim available Sept 1st!!

CTMH Cricut Artistry Bundle

Hey there!! 

This is something new to me and super exciting.  I can’t wait to share with you! 

I want to share with you the new Cricut Artistry Bundle that is available from CTMH and later this week, I'll share with you a couple projects with this bundle!   So if you are just here for the projects, I'll be back tomorrow for my Not You Everyday Card Series video.  And then on Thursday with some Cricut projects.  

I have a feeling you might come back and see how you can get the bundle!! 



The Cricut Artristry Collection is an awesome deal!!  You get an amazing Cricut Cartridge with over 700 images on it!  WHAT!!   You get 3 D-Size Stamp sets, with images that coordinate with the images on the cartridge.  Plus you get this amazing Enhancement Cardstock Combo Pack!

There are two price points for this.  For everything shown, it’s $99.  For the digital version, in which you get an online code for the cartridge images (for those of you with the Cricut Explore and Cricut Air), the price is $79. 

Now, I know that is a bit of sticker shock, but you have to see what is included in this cartridge!! Plus you have to remember that the images coordinate now only with these three stamps sets, but also with stamps sets available in the Idea Books.    Watch the video below.
