Brand NEW Cricut Cartridge - Artbooking!

Hello! I was not one of the fortunate ones to get to attend the CTMH Convention this year. The new Idea Book went up today on the Corporate site so the ones that didn't get to attend could see all the new products too! 

Let me start by telling you about the new cartridge called Artbooking! I've seen the handbook and I'm in LOVE!! You will be able to take your scrapbooking to new heights! The cartridge has accents, borders, titles, overlays, and photo mats that accompany 15 layout themes, and 10 mini book themes! You will have everything you need to create stunning artwork! With just one dial size and one key you will be able to create a complete theme layout or mini book! Birthdays, new babies, vacations, sports, Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day and that's just to name a few there is so MUCH more! 

The collection will be available August 1st, and you will receive three exclusive stamps sets and three sheets of Dimensional Elements that perfectly coordinate with the Artbooking shapes. Again, this cartridge holds an amazing 700 images, fonts, mini books, and layouts! I can not wait to get it!

There are so many new items! Here are just a few....

Crush Book

Base and Bling Wearable Crafting Projects

Designed Decor Kit

New Hostess Rewards

New Consultant Kit!

New Work Shops On The Go!

And finally the new Idea Book!!

It's the perfect time to sign up and I would LOVE to have you on my team! If you have any questions don't hesitate to email me at Tobusyscrapping@bellsouth.net!

My World is Brighter...

Good morning and happy hump day! I hope you all are having a great week! We are having a yard sale this coming up Saturday so I've been spring cleaning (only a couple of months late hee hee) and trying to get ready for it!

I made this card last week and just haven't had time to get it up and posted. I'm up with the chickens this morning so I thought before I get started cleaning I would do it now! The little light bulbs and the sentiment are from the You're Brilliant Stamp set. I used Peachy Keen's, Sweet and Silly Face Assortment for the face (aren't they cute!) I also added liquid glass to the eyes. The arms are from August 2012 Peachy Keen stamp kit of the month. The little hearts are from the Fun Pockets stamp set (added liquid glass to them too). The black zig zag border is from a punch. The heart is from the Stitched Button dies and I've just used twine to tie a little bow.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a GREAT day! Hugs, Leanne

MCT Scrapping The Little Things Monday!

Happy Monday ya'll! I hope you had a AWESOME weekend! Today is Scrapping The Little Things over at My Creative Time and I have a Smash Book project to share with you! This is from our little road trip we took a few weekends ago. I love road trips!

First, let me say I "HATE" getting my picture taken (^^^^can't you tell why hee hee) It didn't help that the lady that snapped our picture didn't give us time to get all situated, it was like...stand right there... SNAP! Anyhoo, I still like the fact we actually got a picture of us "both" together (that don't happen often)! I also sweet talked him into buying the whole little package at the end of the tour and that REALLY doesn't happen! The package came with this larger picture, one just a little bit smaller, two wallets, a big picture of the falls, and it was packaged up waiting on us when we came back from the tour. It was a little bit pricey but after I told him I "needed" it for a smash book page he finally gave in hee hee! I just wished I would have got a picture of the look on his face when he seen me chop up the frame bahahahaha! I used some to mat our photo and those smaller pictures are from the frame also hee hee. I put the rest in the pocket on the right along with our ticket stubs and a post card I picked up!

On the left page, up at the top I've used a sentiment On the road again! It's from the Just Simply Live stamp set. The arrow at the bottom of the page is also from this set. The month, June was stamped using Whimsical Calendar Days stamp set. I also stamped June again on my folder on the right. The year and the word Road Trip was stamped using the Label Font stamp set

Now onto the page on the right! I stamped the word Memories from the Cherish This Moment stamp set. I also used Emma's, Journal It! stamp set, the Stitched Journal die and then stamped the little potty people from the We Are Family stamp set. Right below the Stitched Journal Die, on my folder I stamped Best Day Ever and that's also from the We Are Family stamp set. The little car, tire track, and sentiment beep! beep! are from Close To My Heart's, D1541 Fast and Furious set. I've added little silver brads to the wheels.

This is my last week to reach my sales for this quarter so if anyone is interested in making a purchase boy oh boy I sure would appreciate it!! If you have any questions on any of the products please email me! I'm here to help you in any way that I can! The new idea book will be in my hands pretty soon and I'm super excited to see what new goodies CTMH is releasing and even though lips are sealed I feel like there will be a new cricut cartridge! Any help you can give will be GREATLY appreciated! Hugs, Leanne

Happy Birthday Mom!!

Hi ya'll and happy Friday! Today is a EXTRA special day! It's my mom's birthday!! She turned 71! Here is the birthday card I made for her :) It's really simple but I know she will like it. The flowers are a svg file that I purchased from the Silhouette store. The grass is from a fiskars punch. I used My Creative Time's, Thank You Hugs for the sentiment. I literally could thank my mom daily for what all she has done for me and still wouldn't get enough thank you's in! She's my mom and best friend :) I used my I-Rock to add a little bling underneath the sentiment. I didn't take a photo of the inside but I used two more of MCT's sets. I used "Happy Birthday" from the Gift Card Sentiments and "I love you" from the Mom You Rock stamp set. I hope you all enjoy your weekend!! Hugs, Leanne

I would also like to ask a HUGE, HUGE, HUGEEEEE favor! We are almost at the end of the month and I'm totally panicking! I have not reached my sales for this quarter with CTMH :( So if any of you out there were thinking of placing a order I sure would appreciate all the help I can get!

MCT 3D Wednesday! Enjoy your special day!

Good morning and welcome to My Creative Time's 3D Wednesday! I want to start off by saying I'm sorry for being absent from my blog for a few weeks! I won't go into all the details and bore you to death but lets just  say the last few weeks have been a blur lol! Maybe things will get back on track for me soon (or at least I hope so!)

For my 3D project, I decided to use my Artiste cartridge! You can find the box I cut on page 49 of the hand book. I also fired up the Imagine (it hasn't been used in FOREVER!!) I used the cartridge Hopscotch for my pattern and solid paper. The clown is a svg file I purchased from the Silhouette store. I inked all my edges using my CTMH ink pads. I love how these inks coordinate so well with just about any paper I use! I used my white jellyroll to do just a little doodling :) I then pop dotted him up for some dimension. 

I used My Creative Time's, Stitched Fun Ticket Dies and the sentiment is from Celebrate Good Times stamp set.  For the inside of my box, I added some sour punch straws. 

I would also like to ask a HUGE, HUGE, HUGEEEEE favor! We are almost at the end of the month and I'm totally panicking! I have not reached my sales for this quarter with CTMH :( So if any of you out there were thinking of placing a order I sure would appreciate all the help I can get! You can also read all the specials for this month HERE. If you have any questions don't hesitate to email me or call (I LOVE to talk so don't be afraid to call me!) Click HERE to go to my website (I signed up to be a consultant under my hubbies name Winston so if you notice that just wanted to reassure you that is me!) 

Update on my L Shaped desk....well, it's a wonder I'm even alive to tell this BUT I've been spared (for now) Dummy me did not get the screws from the lady I purchased this from. I don't know why, maybe it was the fact I was SO excited that I wasn't thinking straight but anyhoo, I will have to go back to see if she still has them (pray that she does) if not it was nice knowing you! No need to send flowers just a nice sympathy card would be nice :)

I hope you ALL are have a fabulous week and enjoy all the 3D items the design team and I shared this week! Hugs, Leanne

MCT Designer Challenge Thursday!

Good morning peeps! I hope you are all having a wonderful week! Today is Designer Challenge Thursday over at My Creative Time and guess who's turn it is to host?!!! ME!!!! I decided for my challenge, I would do a sketch challenge! Here is the sketch...

You know me, I LOVE simple! I thought this one would be a fun one to go by! I hope it inspires you to play along too! 

For the background on my card, I've used MCT's Script Type Background stamp set. I stamped it first using CTMH ink in Desert Sand. I then used one of the flower images from the Bloom Where You Are Planted set and stamped (using CTMH Black ink) directly in the center! I used my copics to color. You may notice I didn't color the image completely in! I did that on purpose hee hee. 

For the sentiment, I used the Thank You from the Floral Sentiment set. I also stamped the inside of my card using the So Grateful For You stamp set (for everything). I used CTMH Desert Sand again to stamp both sentiments. I'm sorry, I didn't get a photo of the inside :( 

I hope you will play along with me using my sketch challenge! I can't wait to see what you come up with so be sure to link up over on Emma's Blog!! Thanks for looking! Hugs, Leanne
