A Little Bit Country

My scrapbooking group recently made these pages from the Dakota paper pack from Close to My Heart.  I decided the photos from my kids horsemanship classes would be perfect on them. 

We used the Cricut to cut out the large frame and the "petals" for the flowers.  The "barbed wire" is done with black hemp.

Cricut Craft Room Fun

At our recent team meeting, we explored some ways to use the Cricut Craft room on  I had been seeing several things people had made using CCR, but had not had a chance to work with it myself.  I have to say that I love it!  You can play around with any image from any cartridge, and cut with any cartridge you own.  We used the Artiste cartridge from Close to My Heart which you can order on my website here. 

The phenomenal thing about the CCR is that you can overlap images and then cut them.  We cut the turkey image and lined up the circle image to cut out of his middle so we could add the adhesive-backed treat cups that CTMH carries.  I think the card turned out great!  Thanks to Tina Sutton and Jennifer Romito for the card design and the CCR tutorial.

August Mystery Hostess

I am holding a drawing for a mystery hostess for any orders I receive between now and July 31st.  Someone will get FREE stuff!  The amount of free products won will depend on how many orders are placed, but it is a minimum of $25 worth of FREE stuff.  There are 2 ways to enter.  You can go to my website look at the bottom right of the page and it will say "Join one of Jennifer's Gatherings" and you will see the August Mystery Hostess listed.  Click join and you can place your order right from my website, and it will be shipped directly to you.  I will get a notification, and will enter you in the drawing.  As a bonus, there is a special promotion going on directly from Close to My Heart, that if your online order equals $75 or more, you also get a free paper pack and coordinating accessory.

The second way to enter is to contact me by July 31st with your payment and order.  I will enter it myself, and you will also be eligible for the drawing.  Orders placed this way will be delivered to my house.  My regular monthly club members already have one entry this way, just by placing next month's order, but if you would like 2 chances, you can also order through the website!  2 orders=2 entries in the drawing for local girls!

Pop-up treat holder

I'm trying out ideas for Valentine favors, so I thought I would give you a peek at my first attempt. Let me know what you think! I got this idea from Tresa Black, a fellow CTMH consultant. She does fabulous youtube tutorials. It was really super easy and didn't take much time.
