Oh My!

I love to share what I have learned in the art of scrapbooking and paper crafts.

They Are Here!

Usually I don't get back on to post after my goodies arrive, but today I was good and took pictures of all of it to share.  I got all of this for free!  That's right free! Have I told you how much I love Close To My Heart.  I got three of the Workshops on the Go.  


Pro Play


I also got these three adorable stamp sets!

 This is what it looked like all together!

Okay, so now I've shared and I have to get back to work so that I can play later! Did I tell you I'm working on a 10-page layout with our Tommy paper pack?  Once I'm done creating, I'll share.   Oh, and I forgot to tell you, I have another box coming on Tuesday, Tee Hee.  More to be excited about!

Patiently Waiting....Well Kind Of

I'm here waiting for the Fed Ex truck to arrive with some of my new product.  There are so many exciting things to share.  Once it arrives, I'll take pictures so you can see for yourself.  Once again we have a new Cricut cartridge that is amazing!  I don't know how Close To My Heart does it, but every year the new cartridge is exciting and with new options for scrapbooking and cardmaking.  This year's cartridge is called Artbooking and I can't wait to get my hands on it. Here are a couple of examples of what this wonderful cartridge can do.  First is a Surf's Up layout made by Gina Brandstetter and next a Tommy layout made by Melissa Laverty.  As you can see, the new cartridge includes cutouts to add to your page and cute photo mats!  And this is only a few things that this wonderful new cartridge can do.

Absolutely adorable don't you think?

  Unfortunately, today's package that I'm waiting for does not include this wonderful cartridge, so I won't be able to play with it.  But, if you would like to pre-order this cartridge, the price is $99 plus shipping ($106.87 with shipping), and I can get this to you on August 1st! Included with all of our Cricut cartridges are three sets of stamps that coordinate with the cartridge plus three sets of dimensional elements that also coordinate.   Each pre-order I receive by July 20th  will include an all new washi tape - lagoon houndstooth.  Email me at detty1957@hotmail.com to pre-order your cartridge today. Orders received after July 25th may arrive later than August 1st. So place your order before the 20th to get your free washi tape and a delivery date of August 1st!

Ahhh Summer


After the last couple of weeks with mostly rain, it seems that Summer has finally arrived here in NewHampshire. Since this time of the year tends to be very busy, I'm I planning to scrapbook using Studio J.  I have found that I have not been scrapbooking as much as I would like to and I do not want to fall too far behind, so Studio J is the perfect solution.  I wanted to let you see one of the projects that I recently completed.  I usually scrapbook traditionally.  I love seeing and touching the paper and embellishments, but sometimes life gets in the way, and I need to get caught up and it's Studio J to the rescue.  It is so user friendly and I get to make beautiful pages without having to crop one single picture.  When you see these pages in person, it's hard to believe that they are not 3-D.  These were pictures of a our son-in-law's 30th birthday party ahem three years ago.  I've found that I have not been scrapbooking chronologically lately and I'm less stressed.  So here are the pages I created.....

I love the fact that I can choose from so many papers, even those papers that are retired!  Looking at these pages makes me want to get back to my computer and create some more!
