Ok, so if you all don't know my Cricut is MY FAVORITE scrapping tool! I use it on Almost every LO I make!

I saw a couple days ago that if you purchase and register a Cricut Gypsy by Nov 1st you will get 6 bonus cartridges. Since I have had mine for a year I didn't even bother to look at the info!

BUT I just found out that the 6 bonus carts will be given to EVERYONE who has purchased and registered a Gypsy. So, on November first you will find me updating my Gypsy so I can get the 4 carts I don't all ready own! YIPPEE!!!

The third Thursday of every month happens to be one of my favorite days of the month! It is when Cricut releases their new cartridges!

I just got a peak at the 6 new carts being released this month. None of the names jumped at me. When I first saw Car Decals I didn't think much of it BUT when I took a look at this I decided that it has LOTS of possibilities!!

I really was not to interested in the Quarter Note cart...
I saw this beautiful font on this cart! This was just a little peak so I can't wait until I can look at the entire book.

Rose Gift Card Ornament

I have made about 30 of these Gift Card Ornaments but this is my FAVORITE so far!! Maybe I will keep this one... haha!
I watched Jennifer McGuire video on how to make the rose. Love her videos!

Christmas Ornament by Gage

I LOVE that my boys love to craft with me! It brings me joy to have them come in my room and help me! I don't always show them this joy, like when I am focused and they are trying to take over my project.

Gage and I watched a youtube video on a new technique yesterday so Gage immediately went to work in my room! He took a white round circle and stamped it with small dots and then clear embossed it. Then he used Distress Inks to color it in!

I think he did a great job!

ATG refills

I have had my ATG gun for about 4 years and I LOVE it! When I ordered it, I ordered a dozen refill rolls which lasted me three years!! I ordered another box about a year ago when I was working on Christmas calendars.

GUESS WHAT??? I just finished up the last roll today! I guess this means I am getting some really good use out of my scrapbook room that I got in January!

Christmas Ornament

Since I have finished my gift bags, I have moved on to Gift Card Holders. This patterned paper is some of my very favorite and I only had scraps left of it. But they are perfect for these ornaments. There is also a little pocked on the back of these for a gift card or cash.

Oh, and I LOVE having Copic markers. I didn't have ribbon that matched so I pulled out my Copic markers and MADE my own matching ribbon by coloring some white ribbon! The color is perfect!

I have not been posting the last week.
Brian returned home last Thursday.
Later that night I found out that my cousin had died in a car accident! The last week has really rocked my world!

But now I am back!
My sweet husband asked me if there was anything that needed to be put up on the walls YA!! He put up something in the living room and dining room. Then I drug him upstairs to my scrapbook room. He put up my bucket rack for my Copic makers and my Ribbon Rod! I am so happy to have them up. It looks so good! Now if only I could keep my room clean!

My Pink Stamper Challenge

Robin posted a challenge last week to make something with a Winter Theme!

As you know I have been working on projects for the Christmas Bazaar in December so I wanted to make something for that! I have made several of these cute little gift bags and I have a goal of making 50, I am getting close.

So today as I was thinking of this challenge I was looking at these gorgeous nativity stamps and knew that my challenge was to use them.

Here is what I came up with. You can't see very well on the picture but they are glimmer misted and they have gorgeous! The brown one is my favorite has the glimmer on it is copper.
Thanks for looking! Sorry I couldn't crop it, my PSE is on strike and refusing to open at the moment!

I have decided to make some goodies and try to sell them at our Church Christmas Bazaar.

Here are a few of the 25 gift bags I have made.
I made 16 of the penguin bags because I thought they were so cute! I used flock to make the scarves fuzzy. They are yellow, orange, pink, green blue and purple.
