Tool Box Gift Card and Card - All in One!

Here's a fun birthday card - I found this post here and thought it would be perfect for my son’s birthday.

Here is my version:

I used our Cranberry cardstock and the Happy Birthday stamp.

Enjoy your day!

Oh my goodness, it's middle of November already!  Time is getting away from me so much these days.

A bit of news first ... the Stronger Together stamp set will no longer be available after Nov 30th so if you want it, order it today!  Proceeds from sales of this stamp set will be donated to the Red Cross to benefit disaster relief efforts.

Next month our December promotion is a fabulous Calendar kit and November's stamp of the month is part of the special.  In November, you can get the stamp set for just $6 with a qualifying $50 order (before s/t).  In December, you can also purchase it with the calendar kit but it will be for the full price and you have to buy it with the kit, it won't be available just by itself.   Here is the stamp set and info about the calender kit which will be available December 1st.

Through the Year Calendar Kit

Usher in a new year of memory-making with the Through the Year Calendar Kit! This exclusive kit contains all the materials you need to create a complete calendar for 2018, including the My Creations Calendar, papers, Complements, glitter gems, and custom gold glitter die-cuts — AND it is available at a 20% discount! Each month features a unique 12" × 12" scrapbook page that highlights different seasons or holidays. Just add photos to remind you of your favourite memories throughout the coming year!  $50 w/o stamp set/$73 w/stamp set (plus s/t)

Kit includes:  9 cardstock sheets (1 each of Bashful, Cranberry, Goldrush, Lagoon, Lemon, Pansy, Sweet Leaf, Willow, and White Daisy) 12 Basics Fundamentals sheets (1 sheet of each design) Z3355 Happy Moments Complements Z3312 Gold Glitter Gems Z3184 My Creations Calendar Gold Glitter Die Cuts

Don't forget also that the physical Cricut cartridges are on a while supplies last - if you want a particular cartridge, don't wait.  Lots are already sold out.  You can still purchase the digital cartridges (as long as they are not retired) but once the physical cartridges are gone, they're gone.  Cricut isn't making them any longer.

I think that's it for now - I was going to show a couple of cards made recently but will save that for another post since this is so long already!

Enjoy the day!

Happy October!


The stamp of the Month for October is Christmas Tunes!  Available only in October.  If you place a $50 order (before shipping/taxes) you can purchase for only $6 (+ shipping/taxes)!  Otherwise, purchase alone for only $23 (+ shipping/taxes).

Can't wait to start creating with it - I did do one already that was posted here if you missed it.

Also this month is the Share a Smile promotion for Operation Smile. In case you didn't already know, $7 from the purchase of the stamp set is ​donated to Operation Smile, the charity Close to My Heart proudly supports.

And I think that is it for new October news!

Enjoy your day!
