CTMH Thin Cuts How To

CTMH Thin Cuts How To

I finally got around to trying out my new Stuck On You Thin Cuts & coordinating My Acrylix stamp set today.  I’m still working on my project but I thought I’d share this informative CTMH video with you even though my card isn’t done yet.

And, here is a picture of the card found in the current Seasonal Expressions:

Retired Jackson LO of AZ vacation

Retired Jackson LO of AZ vacation

I love how this LO of last summer’s AZ vacation turned out.  We took soooo many pics on that trip, & even though I posted this awhile back on instagram, I never did a post here about it.

20151203_151735.jpg  I used the retired Jackson WOTG  which features the Cricut Artbooking cartridge. That made it easy to cut out the trendy hexagons. I had printed the photos in soon to retire, Studio J ahead of time so this detailed LO came together very quickly! (I have been scrambling to finish my AZ pics in Studio J before it retires in April or when their photo paper runs out). 20151203_151746.jpgIf you like the cute stick on metal binoculars & circle badge in the middle of a couple of those hexagons, they are from the Jackson Assortment, which as of today, is still available in the clearance section for a discounted price.

Thanks for taking a look at this LO. I’ll be working on more AZ pics tonight & tomorrow at Craft Connection. I look forward to seeing  you there.  🙂

Crazy Clearance Deals!

2016-02-12-22.10.43.png.pngCheck out some of the Crazy Clearance Deals on my CTMH Website. I made this Valentine by attaching one of the smaller PML cards (which I matted in white card stock) to one of the larger  PML cards from the retired Heartstrings Picture My Life set .  While supplies last this 56 card PML set is only $2.33!b651012b-2048-4191-8023-aa8502f1fc5a

I added some silver shimmer trim (current & a favorite) & some retired Stuck on You Puffies (ALREADY out of stock) & voila–I have 54 PML cards left to use for pocket scrapping or other cards.

This is just a sample of the crazy clearance deals, so check it out as items will go quickly!
