CTMH Dream Pop Sneak Peak!!

May is National Scrapbooking Month!  In celebration of this annual event, Close To My Heart
is offering a yet unannounced special promotion that involves this amazing paper packet called "Dream Pop".  See it here first!!  The colors are juicy and rich and from what I've heard  the card stock actually has gloss and texture!  How amazing is that??!! 

Sorry about all the exclamation points, but I'm so excited about this!!

This collection is going to be absolutely perfect for your spring and summer projects.  I see  gorgeous scrapbook layouts of friends and family just jumping off of these papers.  The oranges and pinks would be perfect for sunset photos on the beach.  Can you see them now?  The teals and greens would be an awesome backdrop for pictures of spring flowers and outdoor nature scenery.  

As soon as I hear about the details of the promotion, I will post it here on my blog so you can be sure to take advantage of the special offer.  Stay tuned!

Stretch Your Crafting Budget with the Cricut Craft Room

For many paper crafters, including myself, the Cricut is an essential tool to own.  However, due to the initial expense of the machine, it's often financially difficult to purchase an assortment of cartridges or images to give variety to scrapbooking or card making projects.

Here's a solution...The Cricut Craft Room!  It is an online tool that allows you to combine images from your existing cartridges in an unlimited amount of new designs.  What a wonderful way to stretch your crafting budget by using what you already have in a new and different way.

Say you want to cut out a large circle from your "Accent Essentials" cartridge, but customize it by cutting out an event date or the initials of your monogram inside using your "Alphalicious" cartridge.  The Cricut Craft Room makes it so easy to do.  You can even link up letters to make words and titles.  No more cutting out each letter individually!  As long as you already own the cartridge or image, the combinations are only limited by your creativity and imagination!

Watch the video below for detailed instructions on how to use this tool to stretch your crafting budget.

Remember, think outside the cartridge box and create something new and fun using what you already own!
