What... No upload speed?!

Yes folks, the technology breakdown is still in existence. However, there is light at the end of a short tunnel. An appointment has been made with our Internet provider due to the upload speed being less than what is expected. The "aha" moment which explains my inability to upload photos, videos etc. in a more consistent and less frustrating manner. Thank you for your understanding and stay tuned for high speed power to be restored in the next few days. Oh wait, there is still the issue of my laptop's WiFi Internet card thing-a-ma-jig?! Hmmmm...

What You Need to Know... April 22, 2015

Hi Paper Crafters,
 
I follow and watch many other paper crafters on the Internet and feel bad for them when technology is not on their side. I now feel the same pain. It seems my laptop's Internet card may be going bad as I am not able to upload to my blog, e-mail, Facebook, etc. This is preventing me from printing as well, as the laptop will not speak with my wifi printer. Ugh! Until then, here are the dates for the May and June workshops/clubs so you can register in time to attend. I will do my best to get photos uploaded to my blog and Facebook when the samples are completed, and I am able to upload photos for posting purposes.
 

KIM'S MAY/JUNE 2015 WORKSHOP/CLUB SCHEDULE

Please note registration dates for each workshop/club have been added for supply ordering purposes. When attending a workshop, please be considerate of those who have sensitivity to fragrances.

Pathfinding Workshop On The Go - Third Layout and Card

Autumn has a double meaning here at the Ferguson home... One the season and two our cat is named Autumn due to the fact her birthday is in September and she is a calico (brown, orange, white and black). I plan to use the great layouts from the Pathfinding Workshop On The Go to scrapbook our cat, Autumn. Gone are the days of the boys playing in the fall leaf piles.

Club night was a lot of fun. The crafters used the Cricut and Artbooking cartridge to cut out the images on the layouts, cute! I, of course, took the scraps and came up with the layout and card posted below.

Next month we will be working on the Blossom Cardmaking WOTG G1095. I hope you will consider joining in on the fun.  Order today on my website www.kimferguson.ctmh.com whether near or far.



Enjoy!

Cricut "How-To"... A key at a time (introduction)

Do you own a Cricut cutting machine? Do you use it to its fullest? Have you even used it at all or are you intimidated by the machine and leave it on the shelf only to be dusted off once in a while?

If you are one who has not become good friends with your Cricut machine, I have a proposal. How about adding to my monthly workshops a Cricut "How-To"... a key at a time. The idea would be to take a key at a time from a Close To My Heart Exclusive Cricut Cartridge Collection and share how to cut the images and what can be made with the images. I would supply all materials for the evening and charge $8 per person.

Please share your thoughts in the comments below. I am looking to begin with a workshop in May.

An Evening of Synergy... April 3, 2015

6:00 approached, the door bell rang and the paper crafters began showing up to create for the evening. Thursdays are the highlight of my week, well sometimes workshops are on other days of the week too, so yes, they would also be favorites. Workshops to me are more than an evening of seeing others, it is also my inspiration for getting up some mornings, a reason for me to push the walls down on my comfort zone "box", cause for seeing what else a tool can do besides its given task, and they help me to strive to be a better crafting friend and value those who share the same love and passion for what we are doing together.

"An Evening of Synergy" is an opportunity for me to share with you how wonderful my fellow paper crafters are in both friendship and talent. These are their card "change-ups" from the Easter/Mother's Day card workshop.






Enjoy!
