CTMH's Cricut Artistry Arrow Card

Things have been pretty busy here this week preparing for my Annual Holiday Extravaganza Class & All-day Crop.  Add in the stress of wondering if our city & neighborhood would be one that would be impacted by PG&E’s Power Shutoff and it feels as though I’m scrambling to get things done (& hope they don’t become undone–like food purchased for Saturday’s event going bad if the power is shut off!)

Black Ink Pads–Which One is Best?

Completed CTMH Black Ink Pad Chart

CTMH Black Ink Pads

As a stamper, many times it can be confusing as to which particular black ink pad we should be using for which project.   Yesterday, on Close To My Heart’s Blog, they did a wonderful post comparing the different Black Ink Pads and when it’s best to use which one of them.  It was a great comparison and one I think all of us could benefit from.  Plus, there are great project examples for each!
