Add beauty to your everyday life

Here in Florida we are blessed with year-round flowers but with paper and scissors you can enjoy the beauty and versatility of flowers and greenery all year long!  The current Close To My Heart papercrafting kit will help you do that so easily. Here’s another consultants wreath and the extra piece she made with a few leftovers and some extras:


All the pieces come pre-cut and are so easy to put together.  You can purchase the “Welcome Home” kit for $18.95 or get it for FREE with a $60 qualifying purchase.  As an added bonus, I will be scheduling one or two workshops at my house if you’d like to assemble them with friends 🙂 and have access to my Cricut, inks and tools to assist you.

Quilling Tool and Paper Flowers

We all have tools but sometimes forget about them or don’t realize that they could make our crafts so much easier.  The quilling tool is one that is a great one for those of us who like rolled paper flowers, like the ones we can cut out with our Cricut or other die cutters.  The first 3 cartridges that CTMH came out with have several wonderful designs I’ve used on cards and 3D items.  There are a total of 11 flowers in these cartridges that, of course, you can cut to many different sizes.  Here is a video on using the tool by a fellow CTMH consultand and a series of pictures of flowers and items you can make, the first one from CTMH and the others some I’ve made.  The quilling tool+Cricut make it fast, easy and simple! If you want to know how to get these tools at a special price, please contact me directly.  Enjoy the pics and video!

Gerbera Daisies with my new Explore

Hi there! I’m back from my vacations which I will share about soon. But for now let me show you something I made this weekend.  My children cause me to do things I wouldn’t do on my own and most of the time that’s a good thing. Well, my oldest heard I had saved up to buy my new Explore machine and she had a craft for us to do together. Here’s the picture and I’ll post more on it later. Aren’t these beautiful? The new Explore doesn’t just cut Cricut images but those created by others, too. This project is by a talented artist called Lia Griffith.  And, yes, the new Explore cuts beautifully!  We’ll “talk” more later!
