Rose Blossom Blog Hop

Welcome to "From My Bungalow"!
You probably are coming from
Shelly's lovely blog,
Just One Pretty Piece.
I am so excited be part of our Rose Blossom Team Blog Hop today as we feature the lovely Skylark line.

The mini-album that I am about to share can be created with everything you get in the
new consultant kit plus the Artbooking Cricut Collection.
I will tell you how you can get that cartridge collection FREE at the end of the post.


I used only two keys on the Artbooking Cartridge to make all the cuts for this mini.



There are more pages to see but I am sure you want to continue on this blog hop so come back tomorrow when I share some more pages and details of my album.
The Artbooking Cartridge really makes it easy to create mini-albums like this.
Just select a theme, set one size (I used the suggested 8 inches)
 and cut away using only a few keys like I did.
Or you can mix and match pages from different album designs.
The possibilities are endless.
You can get this Artbooking Cricut Collection for FREE
if you join my Kraft-y Heart team in April.
That is a $99 value for FREE, on an amazing cartridge or one of our other carts.
You can read more about it HERE.
I would love to chat with you about the reasons I love being a member of the
Rose Blossom team and a Close To My Heart consultant.
Now there is another stop to this blog hop so be sure to visit 
to see what the wonderfully talented Mary has to share!

Thanks for stopping by the Rose Blossom Blog Hop!

Kraft-y Heart Blog Share, day 2


Kim and I are back with some more
"spring-spiration".
Here is a little Kraft box I made to hold some mini-cards.
A cinch to create using the Artiste Cartridge.

Here are the cards...



These are some of the stamps I used to create the mini-cards:
I used the Lollydoodle Paper Packet and Stickease too,
The Flamingo Dots (enamel dots) are a new fave embellishment of mine.
And here is the set, all together.


Please go visit my Kraft-y Heart friend Kim's blog,
Thanks for visiting the Kraft-y Hearts Blog Share!
Tomorrow we will both be involved in the Rose Blossom Blog Hop.
I cannot wait to see what the rest of the team has cooked up.

Cardabilities Sketch #97

It is the 15th of the month and that means time for another
Cardabilities sketch!
Here is sketch #97...


I decided to use Skylark papers for this pretty sketch.
I used an older CTMH stamp set to lightly stamp text in the background.
I tore sticky notes to create a mask to mimic the shape of the text field in the sketch.


The "love" sentiment is from "Hello Blooms".  
Hope you enjoyed seeing my take on the sketch. 
If you hop on over to the Cardabilities blog I am sure you will be inspired by the super
 talented Cardabilties DT.

Blog Hop coming soon...


It is going to be a busy week on the blog.
This Friday, our Rose Blossom team will be hosting a blog hop.
Our goal is to show you projects created with the new consultant kit.
Here is a sneak peek of my project.
Everything I used to create it is in the new consultant kit except for the
Cricut Artbooking Cartridge, but wait...
if you join my team in April, you can get the cartridge (or any one of the 3 CTMH carts) FREE!
Here is a view of the whole kit and caboodle.

The new consultant kit fee is $99 but you get over $300 worth of product.
The cartridge collection is a $99 value for FREE!
So, that is around $400 of top quality CTMH products for $99.
And if you join my team I will send you directions for a workshop, designed by me, to use with the Cricut Collection that you choose.
Not only that, you have the opportunity to earn back the $99 you invest in your kit!
With our amazing National Scrapbooking Day special in May, you will be well on your way to 
reaching that goal.
What are you waiting for...you can read more about it on my website HERE.

The Base and Bling was really easy to work with.
Here is a video to show more.

Spring Bling

Today I would like to share pics of a couple of the new necklaces I made using
CTMH Base and Bling.


The card was cut, with Kraft, using the CTMH Artiste cartridge.
I added a bit of Ivy Lane paper for contrast.
Since the challenge at The Kraft Journal is
"Paris or France" I am linking up this project.

And another...
 Ariana paper for this one.
I will soon be offering a workshop called
Spring Bling where you can create one of these pretties!
Have a great weekend!
