Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!

You know how sometimes you just need to have a card and don't have time to create one.  Problem solved.  I created this card in less than 10 minutes!!!   I'm spending more time telling you about it than I actually spent making it!  LOL
 Isn't it adorable!  
Now you are probably wondering how in the world could that gorgeous card be designed and put together in such a small amount of time.  Well..
Let me introduce you to CLOSE TO MY HEART PICTURE MY LIFE SCRAPBOOKING PROGRAM.  Click here to see the whole collection.  These double sided card stock weight cards feature journaling spaces, sentiments, and icons.  Perfect for the widely popular pocket scrapbooking, but also fabulous for cards!!
Above is a sampling of the Hopscotch set.  The sets include 10- 4" x 6" cards and 36 - 3" x 4"cards.  Double sided!!!  and at $8.95 US  they are an awesome deal!
Sooo back to my card ~  I got a little side tracked.  I decided to use the card with the quote from Dr. Suess, matted the card with Lagoon and Cranberry Cardstock, used the corner rounder on both, then glued it all together on to a card base. 
I love this quote!
Now you are probably wondering about those adorable embellishments. right?   Well they were sitting on my desk unused from another project that I am working on, and they matched perfectly!  Fate?
 In fact, these little embellishments were made using the February Stamp of the Month sssssssh
Thanks for stopping by,

MEGA HOPSCOTCH WORKSHOP ON THE GO KIT FOR SALE part deux

I know, I know -  I've already posted this stuff, but I'm so proud of my Workshop, that I wanted to post it again!  LOL    If you missed my last post then you probably don't know, but I LOVE this collection!
I created this Workshop, or as some call it, a Display Board, using the Gorgeous CLOSE TO MY HEART Hopscotch Workshop on the Go.  The Close to my Heart Hopscotch Workshop on the Go kit includes:
1 - My Reflections Hopscotch Paper Packet (X7194B)
1 - My Acrylix Hopscotch Workshop Stamp Set (D-size)
1 - Cardstock Sheet (Colonial White)
1 - Hopscotch Assortment (Z3016)
1 - Flaxen Extra Thick Twine (Z3036)
1 - Instructional Brochure
I used everything, well almost everything.  I still have a bit of the Papers left and a whole lot of the scrumptious twine. On top of all the goodies that come with the kit from CTMH I used Flip Flaps!

Can you find the Flip Flaps? Are you wondering what in the world are Flip Flaps?  LOL
  Ok, here's a close up of the page on the left.
 See that little tab with the star?  It lifts up a 4" x 8" Flip Flap.
And, below is what the layout looks like when the Flip Flap is flapped open.  Tee Hee  Pretty cool, huh?!
Below is the layout on the right.  See the tab with the star....
Lift it up...
ta daaaa!  Instead of a layout with only 2 photo spots, I've now created 4 photo spots! 
So on my 2 page layout with only 4 photo spots, I have now created a fabulous 9 photo spot layout
 using the spectacular Flip Flaps from Close to my Heart!
LOVE!!

This layout does not have any Flip Flaps but I SERIOUSLY LOVE THIS layout too!
 
See that scrumptious twine?  It comes in Pink too!  It's one of those 'gotta have it' things that you need!
and SERIOUSLY the cards are just as AWESOME!!!!!
Look at that twine!  YUM!!
Below are some of the coordinating stickers that come with the WOTG kit.
I added some random stamping to jazz up the top part of my card.
Here are some more from the Sticker Sheets.
Isn't this a fun Thank You card. 
I created the letter U using the very versatile CTMH Cricut Artbooking cartridge.
This one looks difficult, but if you know how to weave 
you will find that this technique is a very easy addition to any card.
Now for the details on how you can create this kit and have you call it yours.
This is my very FIRST kit that I have created, PLUS the cutting files for the FOUR layouts and SIX cards! 
So that's my long story. My short story is I'd love to pass my cutting files on to you.  Just place an order on my CTMH OBA for at least $25 and I'll e-mail the files right out to you.   That's it.  Phew.  I'm out of breath!

Please, if you want any more information or have questions, don't hesitate to email me.
Thanks for sticking with this lengthy post, again.   I hope it was well worth your time.
hugs,
Michelle

MEGA HOPSCOTCH WORKSHOP ON THE GO KIT FOR SALE

Pre-cut files are no longer available.


Looky Looky Looky What I have done!  I just went crazy playing with the Gorgeous CLOSE TO MY HEART Hopscotch Workshop on the Go.  I am absolutely in LOVE with this collection!!  I Love it so much I wanted to make this kit available to you.  PRE-CUT!!!!!  So you won't need to even have a Cricut.  I'll cut those pieces for you.  Don't have the stamp set?  No problem.  I'll stamp those images for you.  Don't have any card bases?  Your lucky day!  They are part of the kit!!  How about those Flip Flaps?  What's that, you don't have them?  You will when you order my kit!!

When you receive my Mega Pre-Cut HopscotchWorkshop you will be able to complete 6 cards and 4 - 12 x 12 layouts.  The kit also includes 2 Flip Flaps and the pre-cut Adornments to go in them!



 Below is the layouts with the Flip Flaps.  Can you find them?






and SERIOUSLY the cards are just as AWESOME!!!





I even had fun decorating the inside of the cards.


Now for the details on how you can create this kit and have you call it yours.
This is my very FIRST kit that I have created, PLUS cutting files for the FOUR layouts! I'd like to eventually sell my project as a pre-cut kit but, as of right now, I don't have the funds to purchase the papers that I will need to offer it this way.  Hopefully that will turn around real quick and I'll be able to create the PRE-CUT KITS asap! The complete kit uses ALL of the Hopscotch paper pack, the compliments and most of the badge buttons that come in the Workshop on the Go kit from CLOSE TO MY HEART.  What a HUGE bargain the WOTG truly is!  I think my kit is quite special because, of course everything is beautiful, but also because I've incorporated FLIP FLAPS into a couple of the layouts! 
So that's my long story. My short story is I'd love to pass my cutting files on to you.  Just place an order on my CTMH OBA for at least $25 and I'll e-mail the files right out to you.  That way I can start having a way to turn my profit into the supplies I'll need to be able to then offer the pre-cut kits. Or if you trust me, you can order the pre-cut kit for $40 plus shipping,  and I'll send it to you as soon as I get all the materials that I will need to put this HUMONGOUS kit together. That's it.  Phew.  I'm out of breath!

Please, if you want any more information or have questions, don't hesitate to email me.
Thanks for sticking with this lengthy post.   I hope it was well worth your time.

Who's ready for Summer?

Who's ready for summer??? I had a blast creating this fun colorful card using one of the borders from the Assorted Edges Flair stamp set. I also added some of that 'gotta have it' teal glitter tape.  You truly do!! Flower by Cricut (of course) The papers are from the sweet Heartstrings collections .
 You can see up a little closer in the second picture.  See those purple leaves, who doe that>  ME!  I used my embossing tool to score the back side of the leaf, turned it over and slightly inked the veins of the leaves.
 Add a little more bling and TA DA!  Ready for some warm weather.
Thanks for visiting,
Love and hugs,
m
You can find all of the projects that have been used in my card project in my CTMH shop.  Have fun and let me know if you need any help.
