Thursday was a free workshop we did some creating using the September Special triple stamp set. 
 We also discovered how to use the Cricut Craft room to make this card in layers. This way you can cut layers and simply glue them together.  Thanks to Tracy Joy for getting me started.  We also went over Studio J and how to make scrapbooking faster, simpler and easier. If you need me to help you learn Cricut, Studio J or Cricut Craft room, just let me know.
This is a list of sentiments found in the New Artbooking Cricut cartridge. Notice the "hello" on the card.

Joyful Stars Aug blog hop

Welcome to the August Joyful Stars blog hop!  Your in for a treat, we had one month to get our hands on our wonderful NEW products and stamps from the Autumn Close to my Heart catalog and we will show you just a glimpse of what's new. I hope you enjoy this hop.

It was hard for me decide what to showcase, I love the NEW "Artbooking" Cricut cartridge
and I also love the NEW Base and Bling wearable art. I could go on and on ......I had my best friend and CTMH consultant, Debbie visit and we had fun making these wearable art jewelry items. I hope you enjoy this:
This is the teal necklace kit. You can find this on page 75-77 in the new fall catalog. The box is an extra bonus to put your necklace in.  Of course cut with the CTMH cricut cartridges.

There are five color shades to pick from, 12 fabrics and endless other accessories in the catalog. I was mainly working on black and white.  I velcroed the center gem and I can swap them out to go with any outfit.
I even made earrings!

This is Debbie's collection

Here is a trick that you can do to color your Base and bling floral accents.  I took liquid glass and re-inker and mixed them together and applied it the flower with a bone folder.

Now hop over to my talented  friend NANCY"S blog

Artbooking layout

I can't wait to show you my layout using the NEW "Artbooking" Cricut cartridge. This is one of 15 layouts that you cut using one key and one size.  I set my size at 11" and everything that I wanted to cut to go with this page was cut at 11".  All the words and objects are linked so that you don't have to guess what size goes with the layout.  Everything you see was cut with the Cricut. 
 The picture frame is scalloped, using the same key.  What a time saver.

Tuesday's class

Become a follower through email to be reminded when the blog hop is posted each month. We are about to have our third hop and this one that's coming on Sat the 10th. We're hoping to highlight some our favorite new items in our new catalog.

Here are some of the cards we made at class on Tuesday. These were taken my Debi, thank you for helping me with my photography.  Debi added a doily to the last card that she makes by hand.  Nice addition.  The first card was using a new hostess rewards hostess stamp set.
 The next 2 cards is using another hostess rewards Washi stamp set.

 This card is using new paper from Babycakes and the new scallop punch.

Thanks for visiting our stamp class, Hannah, you were so brave.  SNAP!
