CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge

I am so excited to tell share a little about the new CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge.  It is a super-duper cartridge that I know you will want and will use for so many projects.  It has lots of shapes, a very nice alphabet, tons of great cards, belly bands and envelopes, and some of the cutest 3-d shapes along with some great phases.  There are seasonal things, birthday cuts and shapes, script balloons and rolled flowers!  Can you tell, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this cartridge?

Here is a picture of the booklet, the guide to folding the 3-d objects and the THREE companion CTMH stamp sets.  This is such a bargin because you get the cartridge, handbook and guide, the three stamp sets exclusive to this cartridge and three sets of chipboard dimensionals, a $130.00 value for only $99.00.
You can shop through my CTMH website or by contacting me ( after August 1, 2012 to get this product.  Our new "cattie" is also full of great new items.

I will be working on some videos with some of the 3-d shapes.  I already have my "wheels churning" with ideas for Christmas crafts, scrapbooking and cards!  WHEW

Thanks for looking, TATA  Join in the Artiste Fun!!

Here is my video for the Christmas in July Cardz TV challenge.  Please excuse my rambling but I am speaking from the heart.  Please pray for those in Colorado that have experienced such a tragedy.
Thanks for looking, TATA

CTMH CardzTV Christmas in July

I made this card for the CardzTV Christmas in July challenge.  I used some of the new Close to My Heart paper called "Pear and Partridge" for background layers.  I also used some red cardstock that was run though the Cuttlebug using the snowflake folder.  I sanded the paper to bring out the white core.  I used a CTMH sentiment and some fiber ribbon from my statch.   I used some scraps on the inside and stamped some snowflakes from the CTMH set.
Thanks so much for looking and thanks Mary for creating an illusion of snow in my mind today!
I am also posting a video of this project.

Thanks for looking, y'all.  TATA

While I was waiting for the rain today (which we did not have), I was cruising on You Tube and found a neat project on a tutorial from Creations with Christina.  She showed how to make a name plate for a desk.  I have scrap-lifted it and wanted to post my adaptation of her creation.  She painted her and it is darling, but I did not have paints so I used scrapbook paper.  I used a CTMH Dotty paper to cover my project.  I also added a little pocket on the back to hold a pen.
Thanks for looking and thanks Christina for your inspiration!! TATA

A most blessed 4th to all and a special thanks to those in the past and present who have helped to make us the great nation we enjoy.  God Bless the USA!

Finally, a RAIN SHOWER here!  Life is good.
I made this card using the "Dotty" paper pack and the Close to My Heart stamp set "Remarkable Wreath".  Actually I made the card yesterday and was so blessed to have a rain shower today.
Thanks for looking, TATA!
