Where did a whole week go since my last post? I'm not kidding. This past week was a whirlwind. Between having family come in for Easter (which was heavenly) and having our kitchen ceiling cave in from a gigantic leak (and yes, the next few weeks are going to be spent tearing out walls and ceilings and putting in new ones), I didn't even realize that I had let a whole week pass by.
Today I'll be sharing another fun Stamp of the Month card (#1 below), reminding you about the OUT OF THIS WORLD special this month with Close To My Heart (#2 below), and ending with some photos from the past week (#3 below...just to prove I wasn't kidding above!).
1. Stamp of the Month Pocket Card: I made this card using the CTMH/Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge (it cut the pocket card, the gears) and the CTMH/Cricut Artiste Cartridge (cut out the "Hello" image from the April Stamp of the Month) and the April Stamp of the Month. Be sure to check out #2 below to find out how to get one of these cartridges FREE this month.
Anyway, back to the card. When you spend $50, you get this darling stamp set (only available in April) for $5 ($17.95 value). If you are ordering on my website, you'll get a little prompt to add one of these sets before you check out. Spend $50 and get 1 for $5, spend $100 and get 2 for $5 each, and so on.
I have included a supplies used list with links at the bottom of this post for your convenience.
Here's a detail shot of the pocket card as well as a picture of the Stamp of the Month set. Cuteness!
2. FREE CTMH/Cricut Collection: When you sign up to be a Consultant with Close To My Heart in April, you get your choice of one of our three Cricut Collections ($99 value) absolutely FREE! The cost to be a New Consultant is $99 and you get over $309 in products in your kit. Math might not be my forte, but it's not too hard to do the addition here:
New Consultant Kit is $99 ($309 in products)
+ Cricut Cartridge is FREE ($99 value)
= $408 in products for only $99

Quick explanation of our 3 Cricut Collections to help you make your decisions:
A. The Art Philosophy Cartridge has loads of cards, basic shapes, and a nice font. If you don't already have a CTMH/Cricut Collection, I would recommend getting this one since it's so versatile. Here's a link to the online handbook so you can see exactly what's on it:
B. The Artiste Cartridge has lots of 3-D objects and holiday related items. It also has a nice font. Here's a link to the online handbook so you can see exactly what's on it: http://cdn.closetomyheart.com/global/oba/docs/products/Cricut_Artiste_Shape_Index.pdf
C. The Artbooking Cartridge is mainly for scrapbooking layouts and mini-albums, although you can use it in many other ways. It also has a nice font. Here's a link to the online handbook so you can see exactly what's on it: http://cdn.closetomyheart.com/global/oba/docs/products/Cricut_Artbooking_Shape_Index.pdf
Be sure and take a look at the handbooks of the 3 cartridges on the links above and see which one you like best. A lot of it will depend on what types of projects you like to do.
Close To My Heart has a good write up about the different cartridges which you can see here: http://leavealegacy.ctmh.com/ctmh/products/cricut-collections.aspx
3. This past week in photos: Between our ceiling caving in, spending time with plumbers and disaster contractors, preparing for Easter, spending time doing my church job, this past week flew! Here is a little photo recap of this past week at the Pedersens. Crazy and fun (all except for the hole in the ceiling).
