Last week for free Cricut Cartridge!

March is over on Saturday, so this is the last week to join Close to My Heart with a free $99 Art Philosophy Collection!  This is an amazing deal and my absolute favorite cartridge of ALL time (I have a ton of them too).    I like to think of this deal in reverse – instead of getting the cartridge free for joining, I like to think of buying the cartridge and getting a BUSINESS for free!  You only need to sell (or buy :) ) $100 per quarter to maintain junior consultant status and still get a great discount!    This kit is worth so much more than what you are paying for it and this amazing business comes with it.  Any questions, feel free to email me at mariamyers222@gmail.com

When you sign up as a new Consultant between March 1–31, you’ll receive a FREE Cricut® Art Philosophy collection*! The collection’s retail price of $99 adds incredible value to your New Consultant Kit and will give you hours of creative fun with the included exclusive Cricut® cartridge, three coordinating My Acrylix® D-size stamp sets, and three sheets of matching Dimensional Elements shapes. Already own the collection? You can always give your free one as a gift or choose to receive $100 in select product credit** instead. Now is the time to embrace the philosophy of fun—Consultant and Cricut® fun!

Cards on the go

I travel every week for work.  When I’m lucky enough to be driving to my client, as I am now, I try to bring some crafty things to do in my hotel.  I often pack a ton of paper items and stamps and ink pads, only to find I don’t have enough time and don’t use it, or don’t feel like dragging it all out.  Tonight was one of those nights.  I have a bag packed efficiently with lots of CTMH stamp pads, a bunch of stamp sets, the paper trimmer and who knows what else.  I just didn’t feel like making a mess at 8pm so instead I decided to just make some ‘halfway’ cards for now and then when I’m home in my comfy craft room I’ll make a mess with ink and stamps.

What I did was last weekend, while I was doing some other things in the kitchen, I cut a ton of various shapes on the cricut on Art Philosophy.  I cut full sheets of paper packs, some scraps into shapes, and some cool other papers I had that seemed to match the paper packs I was using.  I had absolutely no plan when I did this other than I am going to make cards out of this.  So when I felt like doing something creative tonight, but not quite start to finish, I pulled out the shapes:

I just sat and put together a bunch of cards to be.  I say to be because I want to stamp them and embellish more but not in this hotel room :)

This is some of what I did with these scraps (sorry about the quality they are phone pics).  More to come when they are complete.

I even cut out a bunch of roses and other flowers so I can add them to coordinate.  And then I forgot to pack my tweezers so those will have to go on later.

These took me less than an hour to do and now I can have some fun figuring out what I want to stamp on each and what kind of cards they are each going to become!

Going….going….gone!

If you have not yet purchased your Close to My Heart How-To pattern books (Imagine, Cherish, Magic, Originals, Wishes, Reflections), but were planning to…they are being discontinued and are selling out QUICK! Reflections is already SOLD OUT and Originals is almost gone! If you’re planning to complete your collection, don’t wait!! Get yours ordered NOW before they are gone!

I absolutely love my how-to books.  I have been learning many different ways to make cards by using the layouts in these books.  They have printable templates and more ideas than I can count!
