HUGE Savings on Cricut Explore Air

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking through my links. 

Want to be able to easily make pretty décor, personalized gifts, and fun cards for upcoming holidays? Then you need to treat yourself to a Cricut Explore Air™ — Cricut's very popular electronic cutting machine. It's the best DIY crafting tool to be developed since the sewing machine! 

The Cricut Explore Air is versatile, easy to use, and allows for very precise cuts. It's also incredibly affordable, especially since Cricut generously discounted the cost by up to $200 on the machine and bundles — just in time for the holiday crafting season! 

With the Cricut Explore Air™, you can cut over 60 different types of material, including paper, fabric, plastic and vinyl to name a few. The Explore Air also features Cut Smart™ technology, which allows you to cut a wide range of shapes and sizes with exceptional precision, from ¼" tall up to 11½" wide x 23½" tall. 

This Cricut Explore machine is called the Air because it has built-in Bluetooth® capability. This means you can use Cricut’s free iPad app and design anything you want from your iPad, just like you would on your home computer, but with the convenience of being able to take your projects with you anywhere. Then, you can just wirelessly send your project from your iPad to your Explore Air to bring it to life.

While the Cricut Explore Air is impressive on its own, purchasing it with one of Cricut's bundle offerings makes it even more valuable. Each bundle comes with different accessories that allow you to expand your creativity and make your crafting projects even more simple and fun to create. Plus, by purchasing your Explore Air with a bundle, you're able to save a bundle in the process! 

Go to Cricut.com and check out the savings Cricut is offering on their Cricut Explore Air™ and bundles today so you can get your very own in time to make this holiday season your most creative one yet!


Do you need vinyl???

Check this out. I found this on Amazon. You get 5 rolls (you pick the color) of 5 ft x 12 in Oracle 651 for $23.05. If my math is correct that makes it $0.92 per 12x12 sheet. That is a great deal!!! You can get yours by following this link Order here

Block Project

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking through my links. 

I finished my block project!!  I had my husband cut me some blocks from his pile of scrap in the garage.  The bottom piece measure just under 2 ft long, then I had him cut the others to fit the stacking pattern I wanted.

I used Close to my Heart B & T papers as the backing attached to the wood, and I inked the edges  I then used Close to my Heart cardstock for the working (except our name) and used my Xyron and Bonding Memories Pen to stick to the paper.  For the letters of our name I used Cricut Faux Leather.
I also painted the blocks with Chalk paint I found at Walmart and sealed with Mod Podge Acrylic sealer.

Digital Options with Forever

Forever Artisan If you have been with me for a while you may remember, and you may have the old Creative Memories Memory Manager and Storybook Creator products. While these were sold by CM, they were created by Panstoria, which has now merged with Forever. If you have the CM Memory Manager and/or Storybook Creator products (like I do!!) you can now upgrade them to Forever and continue to have peace of mind that your photos are protected. If you do not have the prior software and do not know what this is, let me share! With these powerful photo tools you are able to organize, edit, share, print, etc your photos all in one place. There is no need to pay hundreds of dollars for complicated software. You can also print digital gifts such as photobooks, calendars, mugs, and more. I have used Memory Manager and Storybook Creator for many years and could not be happier with the products. I have 20,000+ photos on my laptop and preserving them and knowing they are safe is important to me.

Coloring Fun with Close to My Heart

Stamping Technique: Marker Coloring

Remember the marker chart from last week that showed you how to create our exclusive colors by blending ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ markers? Well, today we’re going to show you beautiful artwork that uses these formulas to fill in stamps! AND we’re going to teach you some tricks for how to do this!
Using this month’s featured paper packets, Zoe and Nevermore, our artist made these 3 adorable autumn cards:


Aren’t they cute? Using the ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ markers to fill in stamped images is a great way to add rich, vibrant color to your artwork. Before we dive in to the specific techniques used in these cards, let’s talk about ink and paper. When filling in a stamped image with these alcohol-based markers, the ink you use to stamp your image really matters. If you stamp with a water-based ink, your image will most likely bleed and become less distinct as you color over it with the markers. We recommend using our Archival Black Exclusive Inks™ pad or other inks like the Black StazOn™ ink pad or the Tuxedo Black Memento™ ink pad.
Whatever ink you use, be sure that your ink dries completely before you use the markers. On this artwork, our artist used a craft heater to make sure the stamped images were completely dry before she grabbed her markers. We also recommend using White Daisy cardstock when blending the markers to create our exclusive colors.

After stamping (and drying!) the outline of these blossoms, our artist followed the marker chart to create Pomegranate, Eggplant, Sunset, and Saffron petals. As you’ll remember from our previous post, the order of the layered colors is very important, so make sure to follow the marker chart. We love how she alternated Saffron and Sunset on the largest flower! With the help of the chart, she also created Fern and Sweet Leaf leaves. Notice how the Eggplant cardstock on the base of the card matches the Eggplant blossom and pulls the card together.



On this card, our artist used a really cool technique to get the shading on the leaf. She began by following the instructions for creating Sweet Leaf: First she colored the stamp with the Sap Green marker and then with the Pastel Green marker. To create Sweet Leaf you have to repeat these steps, so she colored it again with Sap Green, but then only colored half of the leaf with the Pastel Green, creating that ombré effect. How cool is that?


For the final card, our artist dressed this little monster up in Gypsy, Thistle, and Pear, created again by blending our markers. And don’t you just love those rosy cheeks? After coloring the face using the Barley Beige marker, the artist used the fine tip of the Light Orange marker to lightly add a few dots close together in a circle shape. She then immediately colored over the cheek a few times with Barley Beige large tip to blend the cheek in. The result—a very cute, blushing vampire.
And there you have it! A few tricks you can use when filling in your stamps with the ShinHan™Touch Twin™ markers. To see more artwork made using our Nevermore and Zoe paper collections, search for the hashtags #ctmhzoe and #ctmhnevermore on Facebook and Instagram. And stay tuned here on the blog for more artwork featuring great stamping techniques throughout the month!

Job interview & Close to my Heart

I went on an interview for a job and when the boss asked what I wanted for compensation I replied:
1. First, I would like 22% commission on everything I sell. 
2. And as I sell more, my commission goes up, up, up!
3. I want the ability to earn all-expense paid trips for a job well done, not just vacation time, but the vacation!
4. I would also like the opportunity to purchase my own products at a great discount or even get them FOR FREE!
5. I expect you to provide me with the very best website and training FOR FREE!
6. When I bring in and train any new team members, I deserve to be compensated plus earn a percentage of their sales & the sales of the people they bring in.
7. I would like the opportunity to rapidly advance within the company.
8. When I do well, I expect LOTS of praise and recognition, gifts & bonuses!!
9. I would like my friends and family to work here.
10. By the way, I need to set my own schedule & work only when it suits me and my family.
So... when can I start?
After the owner recovered from shock, he ROARED with laughter, "You can't be serious!?! You're dreamin'! You'll never find an opportunity like that ANYWHERE! And if you do...come back and get me because I want to work with you!"
So I gave him my business card. smile emoticon
