CTMH December Stamp of the Month

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month we have almost 60 participants in the blog hop!   We will be featuring December’s SOTM, which is Year Round Cheer, a 12 stamp set that has something for every month of the year!   This stamp set is available for $5 with any $50 purchase!  If you have come here from Beth’s Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.


Using Cricut Artiste I cut the embellishments to stamp each of the months’ images.  I used 5 1/2 x 4 cards and selected coordinating paper to go with the image.  Hard to tell but each of the stamped pieces is added with pop dots for dimension.  Some additional embellishments and voila!

For the inking on the edges, I used CTMH markers – so easy and controlled!

Now hop on over to Angela’s Blog to see what amazing creations she has!

CTMH Advent Calendar without the kit

I fell in love with this when I saw it, but I’ll admit – with all of the fun new products I was purchasing, I was too cheap to fork out the money for the whole kit.  So I bought the My Creations® Cubby for the calendar and it sat in my craft room for months.

I finally got inspired last week to make the calendar.  It was so easy!  I had this clearance fun paper from somewhere so I used that! I simply cut the box that is on page 80 of the Artiste guide at 2.5 inches and made 25 of them (13 red and 12 green).   They were a cinch to assemble too!

I then cut the ‘circle’ from page 35 accent 3 and cut 25 at 2″  in silver.   Then I cut the numbers in the alternating color of the drawer (green for odd, red for even) at 1 3/4 all from Artiste!

A little glue and voila!  A really amazing and simple advent calendar.  My son can’t wait to see what I put in it for him :)

You can purchase My Creations® Cubby for the calendar if you click here .  Cost is 16.95 for the cubby.

Pear & Partridge Workshop on the Go Card Kit

Had to show off my creations from the Pear & Partridge Workshop on the go kit – I didn’t add every embellishment in the kit as I liked the way the cards came out as they are.

In this kit, for $29.95, you receive everything you need to make 15 fabulous cards – 5 each of 3 designs.  The instructions are so simple to follow – there are cutting layouts so you can follow which pieces to cut and how and just assemble and go!

If you like what you see, you can buy this kit on my website HERE

Or email me at with any questions!

Happy Scrapping!

Cupcake Socks!

I always wanted to try this but anything kitchen related – not really for me.  But now that I have my Artiste cartridge I can choose from so many cupcake wrappers.   Not much use in my kitchen for actual cupcakes so…cupcake socks are going into some fun Christmas presents I am making.

I used the Accent 3 on page 73 of the Artiste Book to make this very simple cupcake holder


The socks were $3 from Five Below.  I cut the cupcake wrapper at 2 3/4 inches (largest it allowed).  I turned the bottomo sock inside out and flipped over the top. Then I tucked up the toe part into it underneath to make a bowl.  I rolled the second sock to look like a cupcake and put it into the sock bowl.  Then I connected the wrapper and set it in and voila!

So easy!

Order Cricut Artiste and get 10% off your order.  Or are you a new customer – that will also get you 10% off your order.  Don’t forget about this months’ special – if you spend $50 you get the stamp of the month AND can choose a stamp set at 50% off (and then that 10% of mine on top!).

Email me at if you are interested!
