Call me maybe....

It's the first Friday of 2013 and I am off to New York City today.  Market week starts Monday and we have a lot of work to do to get our showroom ready for our customers.

Today I have a card that just makes me smile.  Again it is simple but love the pop culture play on words.
So this cut is from the Cricut Suburbia Cartridge (p41) and I used all three layers all cut at 4 3/4"

The sentiment is from Pink By Design and the set is called...."Call me"

Pattern paper is We R Memory Makers Love Struck "MY VALENTINE"

I used the SU White craft pad and my white signo pen.

To make the dial glittered I sent it UPSIDE down through my Xyron--one of my all time favorite paper crafting tricks.

Hope you have a great weekend and I will see you back here next week for a couple of projects as well as a video about one of my newest favorite paper crafting tools!

Make it a great one-

First card of the New Year......

Well it's only the second but I am on track to keep my crafting up this year.  I love simple cards and with Valentine's Day coming up in a few weeks thought I would just get a jump on my least favorite holiday of them all.  It's not that I hate the idea of the day because I am single but rather the color combos limit me to some degree.
This card was easy as well as using a cartridge I have not used in I am not sure how long.

The cut was done at 4" and is from the Love Struck Seasonal Cricut Cartridge.

The Stamped Sentiment is from CTMH Mad About You Set (S1112) which is a SOTM from last year.

I used CTMH Red Glitz to accent the stamp (Z1484)

I also used the SU White Craft ink pad.

Hope your year is off to a great start.  I am headed back to work today so wish me luck--I am sure it is going to be more fun than I think I can handle.
Make it a great one-

Happy New Year!!!

Well my blog friends--it has been way to long and I am trying to get 2013 off to the right start.  Last year brought some unexpected changes at work that sort of through me for  a loop the last 6 months.  My job has shifted a bit and I hope this will allow time for some things other than paper pushing, late nights in the office, and way more travel than one person should get to do in one year.
I have some exciting ideas for this year and look forward to sharing them with you all as well as hearing what you all have to say as well.
I have greatly missed the creative outlet this blog has allowed me over the past few years and the dust build up in my craft room is uncalled for a crying shame if you ask me.
This year will bring more give aways, the true return of my CTMH club (taking sign ups now), a return to more scrapbook layouts, and using what I have in an effort to reduce my stash that has grown beyond the needs of any one crafter.
Looking forward to the journey ahead and glad that you will be taking it with me!! Be blessed!
Make it a great one-
