Where has the time gone?

I have to be very honest- I have not been crafty at all lately!  Since we got back from our trip and now school has started it's been hard to do the projects I have in my mind :)

I just got my photos that were from summer:
This is about 300 photos from just June and July!

Then I want to use this

and some already made scrapbook pages from this:

Just Crazy Blessed Close to My Heart CTMH Timberline 3-Layout workshop with Cutting Guide and e-files! For Customers & Consultants!

you can purchase the guide for 3 2-page layouts HERE

Hopefully I will have more fun projects to show you soon!

Cricut Page

While in Cali my mom asked me to teach a class about Cricut Craft Room.  I had some projects that the ladies made to help learn some techniques in CCR.  I hope they learned a lot!  CCR is so useful when you are doing big projects or even the little ones.  My husband got me a laptop for my birthday so that I can watch movies while I craft and use CCR right at my crafting table (I am lucky- I have my own craft room!  I only have to share it with the loud AC unit and water heater lol)

This is the layout we made:

The Left-handed side was learning to make word art using the different fonts from the CTMH cartridges and the CCR font.  The Right-handed side was learning to group images so you can move them as one image.  I think they'd agree this was the most tedious :) but I think they got it down.

We also made a favor box and switched out the frame on the top of the box for a cupcake shape and make a favor bag with a word cut out on the side.

If I ever did another one, I would totally teach about layers because that is another time-saver that helps out.  

Maybe if I can get enough time- I'll do an online tip class.  Hmmm.. my first video?  That might be exciting :)

Here is the CCR file of all 4 projects- have fun!  You have to have Artiste, Artbooking, and Art Philosophy to cut them out.

Craftin' Mania- Mini Book

Cards, scrapbook pages, and now.... Mini Book!

This book was soooooooooooooooooooo easy to make!  It uses the cards from the Picture My Life series Chalk It Up style.  I really want to do this with my young women at church- I think it would be fun.

This was specially made for convention- it is not included in the Chalk It Up Picture My Life

Most of the pages are already done from the designed cards.  Some of the cards were made from Kraft cardstock and then the Chalk It Up assortment was used to embellish.  You just punch holes, add ribbon, and wah-lah your done!
