Getting into Mischief

Update October 12th:  Linking up with Someday Crafts today!

One of the new paper packets is called "Mischief".  At first glance, it seems perfect for Halloween.  That it is.  But thinking outside of the box, it is also great for heirloom photos, fall events and even graduation.  So far, I have been sticking to the Halloween theme and have been have lots of fun.

My first project was this witch's hat.  It was a paper mache hat from the "other Michael's".  I covered it and then decorated it with rolled roses and flourishes from ART.  Then to add a little sparkle, I used our new silver glitz glitter gel and bling assortment.  I am thrilled with how it turned out and it will be the project for our October Papercraft workshop.  Watch the calendar below for the details if you would like to make this for your home decor or party center piece. 

Stay tuned for the wreath decoration and even some additions to the candle!

Where oh where have I been?

Vacation! Many different places, time with my family near and far, and just enjoying the summer weather we finally have! But I am back and looking forward to sharing so many new ideas, workshops, and products with you.
This post is about ART (what I am now calling the CTMH cricut cartridge) which was scheduled to post earlier in the month and didn't. So please enjoy while I get my future posts set and share some great things with you.

By the time this posts, I will have my Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge in hand and the reason I a pre-scheduling posts...well, I will be too busy playing to do any posting!  Of course, when I am tired of playing, I will post my finished projects.  But until then, take a look at this video and how you can add a bit of Flair to your projects with the Cricut.  I plan to have a Cricut workshop in late August to show the many different features and how to add pizazz to your projects.  Watch for my newsletter for the date and details. 

Have Fun!

Recap #2: Stamp of the Month Wicked for August

In the 2011 Fall Winter Idea book, the stamp of the month program has been simplified to make it easier for you to take advantage of the discount!  Now you can purchase the Stamp of the Month set for only $5 when you spend $50. And yes, you can still purchase the sets at full retail with no qualifying purchase required.  The idea book also provides some additional resources to help you create artwork similar to that seen in the with each stamp of the month set. A full-color insert is included with each stamp of the month set directing you to an online project guide.  The online resource will be available for one year!

Here's what I have made with the August Stamp of the Month  Wicked!

And, here's the stamp set and the blog hop with lots of other "Wicked" ideas.
