Have you every thought about becoming a CTMH Consultant

Now is the best time!!!!!

For the month of March when you sign up to be a consultant for $99 you get a free Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.
This kit is so good it made me wish I would have waited. There is no down side to this offer. You get this great kit, the cartridge and a great discount of all you paper crafting
needs. To stay a consultant all you have to do is sell $300 of merchandise each quarter if you don't you will be a Junior Consultant and have to sell $100 a quarter and receive a smaller discount.

Watch a great video about it HERE.

Thanks and if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Tags Bags Boxes and More 2 Showcase Day 4

Today I made the Heart Gable box on page 26. As usual I cut it at fit to page which was only 6 1/4. This definitely one of the ones you would use the box sections features to make the box bigger. I really like the scoring blade it makes folding the box sooo much easier. It was really is easy. I decided to use some hello kitty ribbon I found  at Michaels (if only I could find some hello kitty scrapbook paper).
Hope you like it and see you tomorrow.

Tags Bags Boxes and More 2 Showcase Day 3

Today I made the tea cup and saucer on page 29, it is cut at fit to page which was 11 1/2. The project was super easy to make. I stamped the tea cup with flourishes that made me think of my great grandmother's good tea cups she used to let me drink out.
 Hope you like it and see you tomorrow.

Tags Bags Boxes and More 2 Showcase Day 2

Today I made the Craker box on page 61. It is cut at fit to page which was 8 3/4.
The first time a cut it, I just cut it without the scoring blade was a BIG mistake. In my opinion you can not do this box with scoring it some how, either with the new scoring tip or using your bade set way down. The second time I cut it I used the new scoring tip which was much easier. I was not sure how you are supposed to close this box so I just used ribbon.
I really like the way it turned out. If you have any question, please feel free to ask. See you tomorrow and thanks for coming by.

Another Silhouette Project

This year I used my new Silhouette to make my son's back board for his science fair project.

I used the Wide Latin font from the computer. For the ice cube I just printed squares and inked the outside with ink and used the Martha Stewart dripping goo to make it look like the ice cubes are melting then applied stickles.

MIni Bottle Holder and a Variation

Today is my day to guest design for shesasassylady. Here is my post but if you have not checked her blog out, I really think you should check it out.

 I have a little secret for you today so please don't tell. I totally scraplifted this idea from workinscrappinmomof4 who got it from cabioscraftcorner but I thought I would share it with all of you here on Sassy's website. Okay know that I have given credit where credit is due I'll share my deign.
These would be great for any small bottles such as the large Stickles, Martha Stewart Glitter Glues, or mini ink pens you have in your crafting area and if you are giving someone one of those small of liquor bottles to someone special for Valentine's or any occcasion, this is the perfect size :).

Here's what you need for this project:
1-8" x 4 1/2 piece of cardstock and a
1-small oval punch
1- 1 3/4 x 1 1/4 pattern paper
2- 1 3/4 x 1 pattern paper
1- 4 1/2 x 1 1/4 pattern paper
1- piece or ribbon
Scoring Board
Adhesive Tape
Corner Punch
and what ever you want to decorate the oval on front
(this projects is a great way to get rid of your scraps)

I chose not to use the circle and used an oval.
To start:
With the short edge across the top of the Scoring Board take the 8 x 4 1/2 inch paper and score at 1/4, 1 1/2, 3 and 4 1/4 inch.

Turn the paper 90 degrees and so the long end is at the top and score at 2 inch and 3 1/4 inch.

When all score lines are made you will cut away all the shaded areas.

It will look like this when you finish.

Take the corner punch and round the left and right corners of the long strip on the cardstock paper.
Cut slits in sides to look like this.

Take the 3 small pieces of paper and glue them to the front of the holder.
See Below:
**NOTE** If using pattern paper apply paper upside down.
(Learned that the hard way)
Turn the cardstock paper over and glue the long piece of pattern paper to the cardstock
See Below:

Thet Nest Step is:
Apply your adhesive tape to the edges as shown below.

Once you have applied adhesive tape  to the edges you can fold the pieces to put the holder together so that the pattern paper is on the outside.

And here is the completed holder.

Then you can decorate anyway you would like.

And here is a variation of the holder.

I put candy inside and folded down the top and made it into a treat holder, perfect for Valentine's Day.
I hope you enjoyed my post and will take the time to make some for yourself.
