Jack Layout and Last Day to order out of Seasonal Expressions

Today is the last day to order out of the Seasonal Expressions catalog. I thought I'd share one of the fun papers that is retiring tonight. It's called Jack and is great for masculine, outdoor, and camping projects. It was perfect to scrapbook these old photos of my son. 

Aren’t the coordinating Compliments cute? I especially love the lumberjack guy with the big beard.

This paper collection and most of the other items in the Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog are only available until midnight (MDT) tonight. Click on the image below to see all of the retiring products.

Flower Market Boxed Card Set

This is another project that I shared during my presentation at the CTMH Convention this year. As I mentioned in previous posts, my presentation was on design principles and design theory. I shared this project when I discussed symmetry and contrast. I designed the cards and box by adding the same Cricut cut leaves and flowers from the Flower Market Cricut cartridge on the top and bottom (symmetrical) and by embossing the sentiment from the We are Makers stamp set with white embossing powder on black cardstock (contrast.)

I created 10 cards using different color flowers to make the full set. Here is a link to the Design Space file for the flowers and leaves on the front of the box and cards. Note: you must have the Flower Market Cricut cartridge and an Explore machine to cut the flowers/leaves.

Goody Boxes Up for Grabs

Just like most devoted crafters, I have waaay too many crafting supplies! So, I went through my stash, boxed up lots of great goodies, and am offering them to you at a HUGE (can you say over 75%) discount! Most of the items are brand new, however I did include some used stamp sets and partial paper packets in each box.

I have 10 medium sized Flat Rate boxes filled to the brim with all kinds of crafting “goodness.” Each box contains approximately $425 retail value worth of Close to my Heart products. While each box contains different items, the boxes contain a variety of the following: a minimum of 15 stamp sets, paper packets, bulk paper and cardstock, Stickers/Compliments, old style ink pads, rub-ons, card kits, mini albums, embellishment assortments, and tons more!

Even though each box contains different items, they all have at least $425 in retail value worth of Close to my Heart goodies. I am selling the boxes for just $100 (which includes shipping) each! You may purchase as many boxes as you like, however I only have 10 up for grabs. They will go to the first 10 people who contact me and send me PayPal payment.

I am looking forward to all of these wonderful goodies finding a new home where they will be well loved! *Ü*

Price is only valid for U.S. shipping addresses. If you are not in the U.S., feel free to contact me for additional shipping cost.

Contact me if you would like a box and I will send you a PayPal invoice.
