A Productive Crop

This past weekend I cropped for 2 days and finished 15  2 page layouts, complete with photos, AND the new Scroll Album! I love those days when everything just clicks when I follow my How To Books recipes and slam it out! I wil post artwork this week so look for that. Much of it will be using the new fall/winter papers and products. It was so much fun to PLAY!  Have not posted for a few days due to router issues but looks like that is corrected now. I have to tell you, I LOVE our new How To Book (Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 1, Item 9035)!!! I was nervous when they discontinued the old ones and worried at what we would is fantastic! Cheaper at $7.95 but what I really like, in addition to the 16 different 2 page scrapbook layouts and 12 card patterns, is the fact  it is super light and travels to crops without weighing me down! It also lies flat when opened.  It is my favorite product of the week .......although I do really like the new slate satin polka dot ribbon too. It is just stunning and goes with so many colors.

Hope you are all having a great week!  Look for artwork in a couple days........

Pin It!

Handmade leaves & flowers cut with CTMH AP cartridge. Inspired by Tracy Mason.
Paper cake using CTMH AP Cricut

Design by themysticgypsy, inspired by Tracy Mason

Being a hopeless Pinterest junkie, I had to figure out a way how to add a Pin It button to my blog images. I may be a whiz at papercrafting but I am a moron in blog design and functionality so I searched the web for a tutorial that could walk me through the process.  Thank the lord I found the Code It Pretty blog and Marie. Marie laid it all out step by step and when I encountered problems (remember- I am a blog moron) she responded to me within 24 hours! Holy cow- you do not see much of that these days. I am so pleased with my lovely Pin It button that I wanted to take a minute and publicly thank my new techy friend Marie and her wonderful blog! If you blog and need a tutorial- she is your girl.  Now I need a little something to offer as a potential pin......  hope these photos work. 

This is a 2 foot tall paper cake I made out of paper mache hatboxes, CTMH colonial white card stock, CTMH bonding memories glue, CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, CTMH liquid glass, pearl floral pins, CTMH pearl paint, Juniper and Crystal Blue card stock and ink, satin ribbon and pearl embellishments. A no calorie treat! It looks difficult but it was pretty easy thanks to the cricut cuts for the flowers.  I auctioned it off this spring at a fundraiser for Operation Smile......that made me smile because it went for around $100, about half of the cost to repair a cleft palate for a child in a third world country. 

I am cropping this weekend so hope to have some current projects to post next week. I am using all the goodies from the NEW FALL and WINTER Idea Book.........cannot wait to show you all. You can also view by clicking the shopping link and viewing the new book online.  Contact me if you want your own copy to fondle and drool over!
