WOYWW and Design Team Project

Can you believe how behind I am? I just have so much going on this week that I think my head might explode. I mean they are all good things, but I am really not sure how I am going to get them all done in time. 


I am late on posting my design team project for the week and now I am running late in posting my WOYWW. I had an appointment this morning and I'm trying to get my house in order because I am having my FIRST HOME GATHERING and workshop this Saturday! Can you tell I am excited and a lot nervous at the same time. 


I mean they are all my friends but there is always that thought in the back of your head that they are checking something out in your house that you didn't get a chance to pick up or wipe down..... Or is that just me. After my appt. I have been running around my house cleaning like a mad woman and I have gotten a lot done.


Anyhow on to the crafty stuff. So this week I will start with WOYWW. 



As you can see...... a lot. Since I'm getting ready for my workshop and I was working on my design team project. I have things for both on my desk. I was stacked up even further yesterday but really who cares. 






So I was thinking that I might try and get a little more organized after this week and see if I can get things together easier for workshops. We will have to see how that goes. 


My card using Echo Park - Sweet Day, Scrap Happy - Snowcone and the We R Memory Keepers - Sew Ribbon, this is the card that I came up with. I thought it was just a cute summery card with the pinwheels and the bright colors. Make sure to check out Scrap Happy Ohio for more from this line and all the Scrap Happy Exclusive products.


Wow, I was really talking on this one. For now this is what I have. I hope you enjoy your tour of desk. Make sure to stop at Julia's blog so you can start touring all over the world. 


Check back in the afternoon for WOYWW

Sorry for the delay, I have an appt this morning and was not able to get all my stuff together. Make sure to stop back by later this afternoon for my WOYWW. I will also have a new post for my Design Team project... Man am I behind or what.

Friday

SO EXCITED

I don't know if I have ever been this excited about a stamp set EVER! I can not wait for the Special to celebrate National Stamping Month!


I mean can you blame me.... Just look at it. It is so darn cute. So with a qualifying purchase of $35 or more from Aug 15 - Sept 30, you will be able to receive this DOUBLE stamp set for only $5!!!

Yes, you read that correct. $5 with qualifying purchase of $35. OMG I can't wait to have this in my hot little hands. 

Also, don't forget that if you sign up to become a consultant during the month of August you get a FREE tote! 


And with our new consultant kits you can pick the one that is just right for you. The Essentials for $49 


Or the Master for $99

The master includes everything in the Essentials kit plus more supplies and 5 Studio J layouts.

There is just so many new things that I really don't know where to start. I will try and post something new every day to keep you up to date.

I am also getting ready for my home gathering/workshop/crop/class at my home and would love  to see your smiling faces. If you are not able to make it, make sure to let me know and I will gladly send out kits. 


Until next post above is August Stamp of the Month.

WOYWW 163

Hello all! So this week in the worldly adventures of WOYWW over at Julia's Stamping-Ground, we take a trip around the world looking at each others desk. Seeing what we are up to or not up to during the week. 


This week has been a little crazy for me. Saturday I had my son's graduation party. That turned out well and I was glad to be able to use decorations that I had made. 



This just shows the card holder, the squash album, the flip flap album and the photo board. I also made a banner, but that was outside. 

So as for my desk this week, I just pulled out my Jillibean Card Kit and started working on that this evening and thought I would get that taken care of. I like to get it and put together so I feel like I have accomplished something.

 This is how I left me desk so I could come and do my post for WOYWW. I will get back to it in the morning. I'm getting pretty tired now.


And I just picked up the new Paper Crafts because it was so super cute and has so many things in this edition. 


Here are the first two cards that I have completed of the 8 in the kit. I can't wait to show you the other ones. I just love this paper line.



And that is about it for now. I will be posting more this week, giving tons of info about the new and upcoming releases from Close to My Heart. Make sure to keep checking back and become a follower if you are not already. I just love followers. See you soon.

NEW RELEASES

I am so excited with all the new information coming down the line. I was not able to attend convention this year, but hope to next year. 




The AWESOME NEW CATALOG
Available August 1st. OMG, I can not believe all the WONDERFUL new things that are coming our way with Close to My Heart. From the NEW Cricut cartridge Artiste. OMG the cuts on here look so good. This is definitively a first to purchase for me. 

To the new and improved and less expensive I might add Starter Kit. There are now two kits that can get you on your way and they are wonderfully packed with goodies. But to know that you can be a part of our family for only $49 plus shipping (sorry but we all have to), is awesome. There is also the Master Kit. We can get into more detail as needed, but I thought I would share with you that during August if you sign up CTMH is giving away FREE stuff:) and I can't even buy it. :( 

 The Free tote with the purchase of 
 The essentials starter kit
Or just go all out and get the full Master starter Kit.

I don't want to bog you down with too much information, but I want you to see all the wonderful new things that are coming. I will post this for now and then I will post again in a little bit to make sure you have all you need to become a consultant, finish shopping the current ad or prepare for the beginning of the month!

Thank you for following, talk with you soon scrappy friends.

WOYWW 162

It might be easier to say, what is not on my desk... I have been so crazy busy getting ready for my sons graduation party this weekend and getting some crafting done at the same time. 

I starting reading through my blogs and noticed that there were quite a few WOYWW and thought, it could not possible be Wednesday again already. I really don't know where the time goes anymore. Make sure to check out more WOYWWer's if you are new to this and join in. You get to see and make new friends from around the world. Start over at Julia's Stamping Ground and there is a large list of all the wonder people that love to join in each week. 

Ok, so back to what I was saying. Man, I swear I have A.D.D. or something. I started a really cute envelope recipe holder yesterday and I am almost done. I just have to finish stamping the cards to go inside. What do you think?






I worked on that in the morning and then again in the evening. During the afternoon I went over to help my grandmother and saw the coolest praying mantis. It was no bigger than an inch or 2. 



It was cool because he was just running around on the railing and checking out his shadow. 

Ok, well I guess I should get back to work and get something else done for the party on Saturday. Hope you all have a wonderful week. 

Blessings -

Another "Sweet Day" with Echo Park


Another "Sweet Day" with Echo Park

Hi all, Mindy here. Yesterday I thought I had lost my mojo, but later in the day I guess I had found it. 

I was able to start and complete a full layout using Echo Park, Sweet Day collection. I just love the way it turned out. And I was able to incorporate the Scrap Happy Round Banner Trio die, going from 2 of the hot air balloons. The base of the layout is using Scrap Happy Spearmint cardstock



I had hand cut all the hot air balloons, clouds, and the hexagon pattern from the 12 x 12 pages that come in the collection pack. The whole collection is just wonderful with all the whimsical colors and bright cheery feel. 

Until the next time, make sure to stop by the store or check us out online. BlogOnline StoreFaceBookPinterest, and all the design team gals listed on the side bar. See you soon.
