Attention all Cricut lovers!  It was just announced that Cricut will no longer be making physical Cricut cartridges.  What does this mean for you?  Well, if you’ve been eyeing one of Close To My Heart’s exclusive Cricut Collections but haven’t yet pulled the trigger and purchased it, NOW is the time to act!

As a result of this decision by Cricut, CTMH’s Cricut Collections offered as a physical cartridge, will be available while supplies last!

If you’ve seen these exclusive Cricut Collections, you know they are worth the  cost!  Not only do you get 700 images (wow!), you get a full package of cardstock as well as 3 coordinating stamp sets.  Pretty impressive.

Happy National Coffee Day

Coffee Card

Happy National Coffee Day!  In honor of the day, I made up this fun card to celebrate.

I love the combination of Glacier and Peacock together.  It went together pretty easy as I was able to cut out the darling coffee cup using CTMH’s Cricut Artistry Collection along with the *NEW* Block Alphabet Thin Cuts dies.

I cut each letter out twice, adhered them together with Bonding Memories Glue and then embossed them with CTMH’s *NEW* Rose Embossing Folder to give them more texture.

Falling for You Wreath

Falling For You Wreath

Happy 1st day of Fall!  I’ve been wanting to share this adorable wreath I made, but figured it would be perfect to share now that the fall season is officially here.

I’m in love with the rich, warm hues of the *NEW* Falling for You Paper Collection.

If you are joining us at the Holiday Extravaganza next month, you’ll get to make your very own wreath!  Haven’t signed up yet?!  You still can.  You can attend in person or get a kit mailed to you with all the supplies you need–complete with step-by-step instructions and pictures.

12 Weeks of Christmas Coming Soon

Holiday Money Holder

My favorite time of year is almost upon us.  I love the start of autumn (even though here in California it is still hot, hot, HOT!) and all of the holiday crafting that ensues.  If you’ve followed me for a while, you know that each year I do a promotion called my 12 Weeks of Christmas.

Inside Holiday Money Holder

Each week for the 12 weeks leading up to Christmas, I send my mailing list subscribers a fun holiday project complete with step-by-step instructions.  It’s my way of saying thank you for choosing me as your CTMH Consultant and supporting my small business.  You’ll find projects ranging from cards, gifts and even holiday wrapping ideas.  It’s a lot of fun!

If you aren’t currently on my mailing list, I encourage you to consider signing up! Just click the yellow “newsletter” button on the top right column and you’ll be all set when I send out my first project idea the first week in October.

Happy National Watermelon Day!

Cricut You Are Here Watermelon Card

Today is National Watermelon Day.  Did you know that?  I sure didn’t until I saw it listed in my planner for today.

It seemed like the perfect opportunity to create a card!  Plus, when I checked if I had any watermelon images on the Cricut cartridges I owned, this cute watermelon slice popped up in my *NEW* Cricut You Are Here collection. Serendipity, right?

I grabbed my *NEW* Whimsy Fundamentals and Basics Fundamentals along with some Raspberry Cardstock and got to work.  I then added some Black Shimmer Trim, Black & White Dots and some White Twine to finish off the card. All-in-all, it came together pretty quick.

If you’re a fan of watermelon, be sure to celebrate today.  Jamba Juice is even offering a special in honor of the day.  Time to go enjoy some watermelon!

*NEW* Cricut You Are Here

Cricut You Are Here Collection

Today Close To My Heart released a brand *NEW* Cricut Collection.  Meet the Cricut You Are Here Collection.  Just like the previous exclusive CTMH Cricut Collections, this cartridge contains 700 images (so awesome, right?!?) Along with these images, you also get 3 coordinating stamp sets and a 20-pack of cardstock–so you can start cutting out images of course!

CTMH Cricut You Are Here Images

This collection contains so much more than what you might think by the name.  It does contain a lot of travel type images (National Parks, variety of vehicles, travel signs) but there are also holiday images (tree, pumpkin), sports (bowling, football, softball), everyday life (Polaroid, swimsuit, teacup) as well as sentiments and a font.

Cricut You Are Here Display Board
