Down on the Farm

I have finished this adorable farm and barnyard themed birthday decor for a little boy's first birthday. This is my second banner and it went much quicker than the first time and I LOVE the way it came out. I had all sorts if visions in my head and they truly came together. I love the rope letters on the Old West cartridge and it was the perfect touch to this birthday banner. I found the bandana paper at the M craft store. I usually use plastic pails for my centerpieces but I changed this one up a bit and used the galvanized pail which was just the right touch for this project.

I never get tired of doing these projects! Hope everyone has a Happy New Year.

As a final note, my Provocraft Ultimate Creative Series arrived just in time for Christmas and I must say it is a wonderful product and I cannot wait to review all the differnt tutitorals and projects this kit has to offer. I am honored to have my Welcome Home Solidier centerpiece featured in this product on the papercrafting DVD so if you have a Cricut and need inspiration, this product is so worth the money and it comes with a 700-image cartridge that has six keypad overlays!!! PLUS a free Cricut personal cutter....if you want more details, feel free to leave me a message and I will get back to you

One week to Christmas

And I still have lots to do! I almost forgot to do any shopping but thank goodness my kids are grown and don't need much, just the joy of spending time together as a family and maybe a trip to Disney or two while they are home. My youngest son made it home yesterday and my oldest son is coming home tomorrow for his leave from the Army. Sadly my older daughter will not be making it home from Alaska as she does not have leave available this year. She is also in the Army and even though its hard on her and us and we miss her terribly, we so very proud of her accomplishments and sacrifices to our country and our freedom.

In the meantime, I have had lots of orders to fill and several more to go....here are a couple that got done this week. Working on my nieces wedding shower favors and decorations and have 3 Sesame Street centerpieces to do for a party late January and also a set of wedding invitations but that isn't until February. Seems like the orders just keep coming in steady and for that I am thankful and blessed to be able to make a few dollars doing something I so enjoy!

So here might be my last post before Christmas so I want to wish all my followers a very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year

New Provocraft product and I am a part of it!!

I am so very excited to share that over the past many months I have been participating in a new product line by Provocraft. I was one of several finalists chosen to include one of my Cricut papercrafting projects in their new DVD instructional series illustrating different ways to use the Cricut demonstrated by some very popular creative coaches in the industry. The DVD series has 10 different videos in total as well as an exclusive cartridge that includes all the design elements needed to create all the projects on the DVD series. My project is featured on the DVD that demonstrates ways to use your cricut for creating gift giving projects.

What an honor it was to be chosen from hundreds of entries to participate in this project and then out of 50 finalists to actually be one of the few that made the final production and filming to be included in the project! Well as you can imagine, I ordered the DVD series for myself and to my surprise, they are giving a limited number of personal Cricut machines with the order to those who call.

If you are interested in seeing the informercial for this product there is one more opportunity to view it at 6:30 AM tomorrow morning (12/9) on the DIY network (or set your DVR to record it like I did!!). I CAN PROMISE YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!! This DVD collection will not be available in stores and can only be purchased by calling Provocraft at 1-800-688-6981.

Thanks for letting me share my five minutes of fame with you all! I ordered the DVD series as I see such potential in it being a productive tool in my papercrafting workshops that I have monthly at my home. I cannot wait to share these projects with my crafting ladies!!

UPDATE: I just found out that you can get all the info on the DVD series, see the gallery of projects, and order the bundle as well as see clips from the informercial at this website:
