Paper cutting tricks!

So this weekend I was showing a friend how to make some cards and I chose to do 5 x 7 size. I showed her how to cut the 5 x 7 card and then use the remainder 5 x 5 piece for a little tent style card. (See previous post For Always!)

I then showed her how to cut (4) 5 x 7 pieces of background and texture paper from one 12  x 12 with no waste. I sometimes forget that not everyone knows these tricks! LOL! I found a great tutorial from the Cafe Crop site with a PDF file too! I hope they don't mind me posting it!

 Too great to not share!

Later Sk8r! Fun Valentine using new papers!

Sneak peek of our fun new masculine papers called Later Sk8r (X7167B $9.95)! Super cool! I also used a new spinner stamp set called Wheel of Life (D1545 $17.95) You + Me is from Whoos Your Valentine set! I cut the gear behind the UR with the CTMH Cricut cartridge Artiste, added a little sponged distressing! Colors are Lagoon, Pear and White.
Spring/ Summer catalog goes live on February 1st!
 Email me to get your copy! Best catalog Ever!!

New papers! For Always!

Love, love , love all of the new papers this catalog! Best catalog ever!
Sneek peak today of For Always (X7165B $9.95)! This is so pretty and versatile! Six different patterns using black and  white! I also used a new stamp from the set Frame Flair (D1546 $17.95) Notice the little decorative strip in the middle? That is the bonus zip strip from on top of the paper! Happy Stamping! Sandee

Mustache Valentine's using CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge

Not the best picture, but my DD Morgan and I made these mustache candy sticks for all the boys in her class for Valentine's Day! We used the CTMH Cricut cartridge Artiste! The candy is Valentine Sixlets from the Dollar store (MHO they don't taste that great!) On the back we made little labels that say Happy Valentine's Day Your Friend, Morgan. She would like to cut out lips for the girls. I need to find a cut for that next!
Happy Stamping! Sandee

Sneak Peek from New Catalog! Girls Rock

The new catalog goes live on February 1st and I have them now! I was able to order a few preview items! The cover of the catalog showcases  the new paper packet Chantilly. It is a girly mix of paisley flowers and petite backgrounds. Love the springy colors!

 I just had to make a couple cards with these bright colors using the new Girls Rock stamps! I cut all of the flowers using the Art Philosphy Cricut Cartridge!
 Happy Stamping! Sandee!

Products Retiring Available While Supplies last

Well we made it through "The end of the Mayan calendar", Christmas and even falling off the "Fiscal Cliff"!  Now we have to say goodbye to some of our favorite stamp sets and embellishments!

A new catalog is ready to be released on February 1st, that means there are a lot of great products retiring to make room for the new ones. I am enclosing a link to the list of the retired products. These are available only while supplies last and some of them are already limited! If you are interested in any you can place an order on my website by clicking on the Shop With Me Tool on the right or call or email me to help you with your order! These items will only be available for a short time, so don't wait!


I am really sad to see so many A size stamps go! These are the quick card stamps for only $6.95! Be sure and take a look at these, as they are a great value! I know there are going to be new ones I love too, but don't miss out on any of these retired ones. Once they are gone, they are gone!

Happy Stamping! Sandee
