CTMH Artfully Sent Halloween Pop-Up Card

Continuing my love affair with the CTMH Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge and my Halloween projects...

Today I whipped up a pop-up card.  I learned to make pop-up cards about 18 years ago, but as you know...I don't feature them much on my blog.  Why?  I am too lazy and impatient!!  That makes the Artfully Sent cartridge perfect for me. LOL  I think I can handle pushing a button or two and loading the paper.  Now I am going to be the popup Queen!!

I kept the outside of the card fairly simple and I just cut out a few images from the patterned paper in the Scaredy Cat Paper Packet...

Everything on the inside was cut with one key on the Cricut.  You can't tell in the picture, but I cut the spider out of Purple glitter paper.  I love how easy it is to cut the CTMH glitter paper!!!

There's still plenty of time to create all the Halloween gifts and projects you need.  Just hop on over to my website and order your Cartridge and papers and you'll be all set.

Having fun with the CTMH Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge

I think I have a new addiction and nobody will be more surprised than I am!!  I always keep it real at my workshops and crops.  If I think something is a good deal I tell you, if I don't...I tell you or I promote something else...

Well....I haven't said much about the new Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge because I wasn't too excited about it.  I hadn't seen very many samples and I just didn't see the "vision" of it....Boy oh boy has that changed!  I love this cartridge!!!  It is completely different from the rest of our cartridges and the perfect complement to my collection!!

Okay, Okay... enough blabbing, it's time to start sharing some samples.

With Halloween just a little bit over a month away, it's time to start creating....

One of the features on the cartridge is slide cards.  Typically you make a pouch to slide another card in and out of (wait until you see my gift card ideas!!!) but for Halloween I thought it would be great to turn the pouch for the slide card into a treat pouch.

I used the Scaredy Cat Complements to make decorating the pouches quick and easy!

 Another fun way to decorate your projects it to cut out images from the patterned paper in the Scaredy Cat Paper Pack!

You can order your Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge and the Scaredy Cat paper and complements 24/7 on my website.

Celebrate National Stamping Month and #30yearsofhappy

This month Jeanette is celebrating 30 years in the stamping business!  What an amazing accomplishment.  I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity that she created when she built D.O.T.S/Close To My Heart.  I have been a consultant for 19 years and it has enriched my life in so many ways.  As I look at the people I hang out with and call my many of them are because of my association with Close To My

What's a celebration without a few gifts??  Let's get back to our roots and order some stamps, practice some stamping techniques and get FREE stuff!  When you order $30 in stamps during the month of September you will receive the #30yearsofhappy stamp set free!! And since I am starting on my 20th year with Close To My Heart/D.O.T.S. I will give the first 20 people who order $30 of stamps from my website...a free stamp pad of their choice.

What stamps are you going to order???
