Level 1 Rocks!

I decided to challege myself...I wanted to create something different with a Level 1 Kit. For those of you who are not familiar with Level 1, they contain 4 preprinted scrapbooking pages, 2 sheets of B&T duos, 2 sheets of coordinating cardstock & 2 sheets of My Stickease.  Instead of making 2 layouts, I thought I'd try to make cards out of it. 

It was really fun!  Once I cut out the card sizes, I just folded the bases and designed the cards from there.  I used a few stamps, but other than that, it was only Level 1 kit! 

And, for only $9.95, it's a GREAT deal!  Check out the other Level 1 kits and see what you can make out of them!

A Page to Frame

Ok.  I know this is a little fussy.  Some people don't like putting ONE picture on a layout...I usually don't either, but this was a special picture and I really wanted to make a special layout to showcase it!

I LOVE the BLISS paper!  At first, I was not too excited...thinking that I am not too "fancy" (I like bright, fun colors :0)  But, I really do like this paper!  I like that it's neutral and you can add any coordinating cardstock to match any decor.  So, it has really turned out to be a pack I'm using more and more.

I wanted the page to be simple, but I also wanted it to look vintage and shabby.   I really think this is the perfect paper! 

Materials I used for this project:
Bliss L2 X7132B
Cricut Cartridge:Cindy Loo (frame)
Cricut Cartridge: Home Decor (beautiful)
Flourish Stamp: Playful Flourishes D1212
Chocolate & Hollyhock cardstock

Let me know what you think!  I had a lot of fun with this one :0)

Why Close to my Heart?

There are a lot of Scrapbooking & Stamping companies to choose from...why choose CTMH? 
As an avid scrapbooker & paper crafter, I decided to start doing some research on scrapbooking companies.  I wanted to make a little extra money to help support my crafty habit.  So, I went on-line, called some friends and looked at the different companies and what each had to offer.  Here is what I found:

1.  Close to my Heart had the best consultant compensation plan. They pay 22% base, and as your sales grow, so does your compensation. 

2.  I LOVE that they have clear acrylic stamps!  Ok.  That might not be a big selling point for you, but it was a VERY big deal to me!  I didn't have my own scrap space at the time, so my space was extremely limited.  I didn't have the space to store boxes and boxes of stamps.  And let's face it, part of the reason most of us become consultants is to get the great discount on great products...I knew my stash was about to grow tremendously....I needed to make sure I had the space :0)

3. The consultant kit was way less expensive (about $100 less) than the competitors!  That made a HUGE difference for me! 

4.  I loved that everything was coordinated in "KITS" -because that meant less work for me!

Now that I've been a consultant for over 2 years, I can absolutely say, without a doubt that it was the perfect decision for me!  I LOVE my "job"!!!!

*******50% off Consultant Kit in May! *******
CTMH is offering their new consultant kit for $64.50!
You will also receive the You and Me kit ($34.95 value) FREE along with your new consultant kit!

It's an UNBELIEVABLE deal....So, if you are thinking about it, give me a call and I can answer any questions you might have....I know that starting your own business can be scary, but where else can you do it for $64.50?  You get all of the business materials and plenty of great product to get you started.  Now is the BEST time to join CTMH!

Late Night Card Making Session

I had a blast staying up late working in "My Crafty Place!"  I usually do NOT stay up so late (it was 2am) since I have to get up early with the kids...but it was so worth it!  I really got to just sit and play.  Even my hubby came in with his laptop and got some work done!
Here are a few cards I made last night...Let me know what you think!

Sofia L2 paper & Cricut Storybook Cart for frame

Sofia L2 Paper & Martha Stewart Corner/Border Punch

I used Bliss L2 paper pack.  For the flower I used an awesome tutorial that my fab downline Brenda did on her blog.  You can find the tutorial here.  I LOVE that flower...thanks Bren!

I used Mayberry L2 Paper & found a great tutorial on Split Coast Stampers for the Quilt Card.
