Head on over to:
My YouTube Channel

And for those of you that dont know I have started to do some tutorial videos. I only have one so far and its how to link a cartridge to your gypsy but there will be more to come, I promise! I am working on a new video of my latest CTMH haul and then in a couple of weeks I will have another one as well!

Anyone have any requests for videos... certain tutorials, anything you want to know like a Q & A type thing. Would you like to have videos of my prizes? Anything at all I am looking for ideas, I can make videos of me doing my projects,,, Really anything.

On another note my vacation came to an end today and it was one of those days that if something could go wrong it did! UGH it was so bad!

Back to making my latest haul video!!!

Until Next TIme! :)

August Artiste Blog Hop

Welcome to our August ARTISTE Blog Hop! Each month we will showcase a feature of the amazing ARTISTE Cricut cartridge which can be purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant.

We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects AND some blog candy!!!

This month we will be showcasing a different page from the Artiste cartridge! Did you know there were 700 images on this cartridge?? That's right -- 700!!!

If you just happened to come to this blog, you should start at the beginning at Lucy's blog - http://www.love2createitall.com.

My project comes from page 48 of the Artiste book. There are some amazing projects on this page!! For this hop I made the explosion box. It is the 3D option on the i Button.

For this project I cut the base at 3 inches and the second inside layer at 2 3/4 inches and the last layer on the inside is cut at 2 1/2 inches. I used the Dotty for You paper pack, for everything on this project. I feel like it is still missing something! I will be added 3 girl Jam bows when my order comes in to match the colors. This is going to be a gift to my best friend so she can fill it in with Pictures from both her daughters Birthdays! This was a super fun and easy project to make. Much easier than making one buy hand which I used to do all the time!

I will be giving away a small prize pack to one lucky hopper.

How to win:
1. Must be a follower
2. Leave a comment.

Its that simple! Good Luck everyone!

Layouts and prizes!

Good afternoon all! A couple of days ago I finished my first LO in several years! I was so happy to have finally done it! Its been a long time coming!

 This LO is the start of Mike and I's first album, Not to much going on but it is only the intro page! I can't wait to create more pages for our book. I have a lot of pictures already printed and I also now have a couple more events to print out as well as adding more events this weekend when we go see the Combine Derby with the Tickets I won! I am so excited for tomorrow!
Its sad to think that my vacation is coming to an end. It was really great while it lasted. I head back Tuesday morning at 3am! UGH it will be here before I know it! It will be another year before I take another one. I see some 3 day weekends in my near future.

Anyways I also found the pictures I took of Tinas prize pack and I wanted to share with you all what the prize was besides the $15 credit to Nikkis.

Tina's prize pack will be going out tomorrow morning before we head out to the fair.  :) I will also be participating in my first CTMH blog hop tomorrow. I am super excited about that! We will be sharing items from the Artiste Cartridge. :) I will be finishing my project tonight and am super excited to share it will you all!

We have a Winner & True Blood

So sorry for the delay in finding the winner! Vacation is still as busy as work without the stress! Things now have slowed down after today until the weekend! I can focus again on crafting and blogging! I was able to get some craft time in tonight after fair. I had to make a Birthday Card for my boyfriends brothers girlfriend. She is a huge fan of True Blood so the request was a True Blood card. While I am not a fan at all nor a fan of Twilight, I was at a crossroads for making this card I had no idea what to do for it, and in my search I could not find anything True Blood I found a ton of Twilight digi stamps and things but no True Blood. I was able to improvise and use some pictures of the net and just printed them straight to the card. Not the real way I wanted to go but it worked.

I used some Close to my Heart stamps for the Birthday I used the Birthday set in the Artiste Cartridge set and then I used Celebration as well.. The first card has Star Spangled Blue and HollyHock on it and the second one has Lagoon and Tulip!

Now for the moment we all have been waiting for, The winner of the prize pack and the $15 credit for Paper Piecing by Nikki is.....

Tina from Tina's Scrap Corner!!!

Congratulations Tina please e-mail me your info to Prizes@scrapprincess.com!!!

I will be posting a picture of the complete prize pack in the morning!

Until Next Time!

You won't want to miss some of these amazing projects that these ladies have made! So please hop along with us! 

Since yesterday was my boyfriends Birthday I decided to make him a card for this hop. (We are five days apart!)

For this project I used the Artiste for cut the happy birthday banner and the cupcake. I used the stamp set that came with the bundle to add the candle and the sprinkles to the cup cake as well at the wrapper. I also used the banner stamp in the set for the happy birthday. I used bakers twine around the card. (my first time using twine!) The card is for a guy so I wanted to keep it kind of plain but I still think that it is missing something. But he loved it either way! The inside says "May your Birthday be as special as you are!" My favorite birthday saying!

Jessi's Halfway to 50 Blog Hop!

Happy Happy birthday to Jessi,
This is her half way to 50 blog hop, yeah shes 25 and since shes too busy with school n work were throwing a party on the blogs.  
25 is not old to a lot of us but remember when you were that age and you felt like it was the end of your young adult life.  For the hop today it's birthday themed of course.
You should of came from Jamie but if you just happened here head on over to Jessi at My life in Arts n’ crafts. Make sure to follow along all the blogs in the hop and comment as well. Plus I heard a rumor Jessi’s got a giveaway.
 For my project I made …..
For this project I used the Artiste Cartridge from Close to my Heart and cut out the cupcake. I used Tim Hotlz Faded Jeans to distress the wrapper. :) I added some sequence to the wrapper to make it more girlie and some glitter to the top and I topped it all off with a cherry!!! I inked the stem with Cocoa from Close to my Heart. I used Everyday Celebrations for the Happy Birthday in the middle! This would make a wonderful present tag. Make it bigger and it will make a great card! :)
