New Adventures of the Heart!! =D

I am so excited and nervous at the same time! I love scrapbooking, card making, sewing, anything craft like, and now I am hoping to get even better at it.
I joined a company called Close To My Heart. They have great products, a great variety of things and even corresponding/matching ribbons, brads, papers, stamps and everything. The best thing about hem, is that they have GREAT prices.
I absolutely cannot wait until I get my kit!! I wish it's didn't take up to 14 days, patience is not a great virtue that I hold, LOL.
My favorite thing about the company is that they got together with Cricut and made the Art Philosophy cartridge! So the cartridge has 700 images on it and CTMH has stamps that work with some of the images that you can cut out! How amazing is that?!   This is where my lack of patience is hard to deal with. I have to wait until next month, (October) to get the cartridge, but that's because of personal reasons only.
Anyway I want it so bad because when you buy it from them, they send you some of that stamp sets that work with the cartridge plus some other goodies!
So here's my scoop, I love being a stay at home mom more then anything, my babies are the world to me! But I also love learning new things and who doesn't love making a little $$ on the side. So my first goal with joining to CTMH is to learn more about how I can become better at crafting, and to share my passion with all those who are interested in learning about it. Then if I make some money then I'll be so stoked. But that's not a huge priority here, it is a priority, but for now not a huge one. I'm just starting with the company and I really just want to be able to learn more about them before I get crazy ahead of myself.  (Which brings up the question, why am I already posting? -LOL)
So those are my rambling and excitement for now. I am so excited that I have 3 followers, I never thought in a million years that I'd actually reach anyone! So thank you tbabutterfly, JustYolie, and Respect my Kraft. You guys are great and I'm so happy you enjoyed my posts so far.
Hope everyone has a great rest of the week and I'll  be sure to post as soon as I get my kit! (maybe sooner)   (=

I hope only the best for everyone who is involved in this project, and the nurse running the whole project.

My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Blog hop

Here is a card that I made for blog hop.
The challenge was to show your style by making your favorite thing. You could pick a color, or a cartridge or whatever you want. I picked my favorite border punch by ek success, and some prima's.

I left the tag blank so that later on I can add whatever saying I need to, depending on who will be receiving this card.
I got the paper from DCWV metallic mat stack. And the raw chip board I got from a store in Utah when I was visiting, I can't remember the brand and then I got the gold ribbon from a scrapbooking tote kit I got a couple years ago from Sam's Club. I inked the edges of the chipboard with some brown permanent stamp pad.

Grawe Sign

I am so excited to have a crafting blog again! Like our old family blog it got a virus and just died. But again I decided to start a blogspot, so far I am really liking it. It seems to be a lot easier to upload pictures, and that is a huge plus for me because most of my posts are just pictures.
So any way here is one craft that I have done lately!

I have been talking about doing this sign FOREVER! My sister made a sign like this one about 4 years ago, except with hers it says Family instead of her last name. And I have loved it the moment I saw it. But I really wanted to personalize it to my house and my family. Well obviously I decided to have our last time.
I did steal the idea of doing all the letters being miss-matched. My sister had the letters like this: "FaMilY" and they were all different sizes picture frames as well. I guess the person who taught her how to make the sign said it was suppose  My last name doesn't have as many letters but I did try with the upper and lower case letters with the different size pictures frames as well. Personally I loved the way it came out. I already had the brown vinyl, (I wanted to use green but I didn't want to buy more vinyl when I already had a color that would work) so I used green ribbon to bring in the green of my living room.
The tree is a great art decoration that the Easter Bunny brought me in my basket. If you know me, you know that I love trees!
I hope you enjoyed my first post for this blog. Please leave a comment. (=
