Stamp Out Procrastination Series #1 - Heat Embossing Paper Piecings

Hi Paper Crafters,

Starting a new summer series called Stamp Out Procrastination. The purpose of this series is to challenge us all to pull out the stamping supplies we have been stock piling, but not necessarily using.

For this post and video I am sharing how to heat emboss paper piecings I have cut the images from a Cricut cartridge, Paper Doll Teen Scene and Family Album.

I hope you will join me in dusting off your supplies and put them to use. Enjoy!

Cut The Guilt Series #6 (Country Life 2 page layout)

Hi Paper Crafters,

My share for today is the 2-page scrapbook layout I created using the Cricut cartridge, Country Life. I used more patterned paper on this layout than I normally use for background work. It came together really well in my opinion.

Enjoy!

Cut the Guilt Series #5 (Part 1 and Part 2 - Country Life images)

Hi Paper Crafters,

This weekend I am back with images from Country Life, a request from a viewer. How are you doing with this new series, Cut the Guilt? Are you pulling out those cartridges or designing on Cricut Design Space to get some use out of your investment? I really feel good about this series and have now used 5 cartridges I had never cut images from. Yes!

Here are images from Country Life. The video was over an hour, so I had to make Part 1 and Part 2. Enjoy!

Close To My Heart's 35-Year Anniversary Sale Next Week!


35-Year Anniversary Sale Next Week!
In celebration of CTMH's 35-year anniversary year, there will be an exciting anniversary sale on my Consultant website next week! The sale will begin at 3:00 pm (MDT) on Wednesday, May 29, and end at 11:59 pm (MDT) on Friday, May 31. While this sale will last longer than our typical flash sales, many of the same considerations apply:
Sale prices are only available on orders placed on my Consultant website.
The sale features a selection of current products at 35% discounted prices. CTMH has a limited number of these items set aside for the sale, and they expect to completely sell through several of them because of how great the deals are. Once CTMH sells through the allowed amount, those items will no longer be available, so shop early!
Any items that sell out during the sale will return to availability at normal price once the sale has ended.
All discounted items count towards Stamp of the Month qualification. Ask me about setting up an online gathering for you to earn free and discounted products :-)
Shipping and handling is based on the full retail value of the sale items.
