Less than 1 Week Away!!! – Eek, Shriek & Be Scary!!!

Wow – It’s less than 1 week away!!!  What am I talking about???  FALL!!!  Fall is really my favorite season.  I have grown less and less tolerant of the humid summers of the North East.  But, the end is in sight!  I just hope it lasts a good long while before Old Man Winter rains  snows on my parade!

So I’m headed to a weekend crop in October and I’ve designed a 2-page Layout to teach at the crop using Close to My Heart’s Nevermore Paper Packet & Embellishments.  It was a fun layout to put together and I love the way it turned out.  It features Shimmer Trim & Glitter Paper as well as Cricut Cuts from the Close to My Hearts Artistry & Artbooking cartridges!  I hope you enjoy it!  Check out my store here!

Peace Out!

Introducing…. ZOE!!! Oh and a CTMH Blog Hop!!


Hello Blog Hoppers! If you arrived here from Andrea Sherman’s blog, you’re on the right track! If you’re a faithful follower or just happened acrossed this blog, please make sure you check out the other talented paper crafters at the end of my post!

Gosh, this seemed like the longest month every! It’s been about 3 weeks since the annual Close to My Heart Convention and since we got the very first sneak peek of the Zoe Collection as well as the newest, exclusive CTMH Cricut Cartridge, ARTISTRY!!!!  Finally, I am able to share these with you!!!

Cricut® Artistry Collection


I just LOVE this cartridge!  Most of you that know me, know that I’m a hard-core Silhouette Cameo user.  I recently bought a Cricut, simply so I could use and sell the CTMH cartridges.  Well, I just adore this cartridge and I’m really beginning to like using the Cricut!  This collection is different from previous collections and I really think you will like it.

The collection include:

1 – Cartridge (700 images: Shapes, Layers, Banners, Borders, Backgrounds, and Font)
3 – My Acrylix® D-size Stamp Sets
1 – Enchantment Cardstock Combo Pack

Next I’d like to share with you the Zoe Collection!  And how better to show you than to use it???  I hope you like my project.  My daughter Izabella started swim lessons at the beginning of summer.  She was extremely afraid of the water.  My layout uses pictures taken about 4 weeks into her lesson.  It was almost as though I were looking at a completely different kid!!!  She just loves the water now.  What a difference a few lessons make!
