Creative Charms Deal of the Month for November (and a quick tip)

A week ago I told you about the two Kit of the Month offers from Creative Charms.  I mentioned that the Deal of the Month would be revealed on the 15th.

Well...there were so many people asking about the Deal of the Month that Creative Charms has decided to release the deal early.  Here it is!

Deal of the Month – Falling for Fall – 128 Pieces $6.99 (Regular $18.43)
·         Orange Sheer Flowers – 3 Pieces
·         Red Sheer Flowers – 3 Pieces
·         Orange Gem Brads (assorted sizes) – 12 Pieces
·         Red Gem Garden – 12 Pieces
·         18” Red Fancy Polka Dot Ribbon
·         Red Sunflowers – 4 Pieces
·         Loop d’Loop Brads (assorted colors) – 9 Pieces
·         Red Gem Stickers – 76 Pieces
·         Orange Groovy Petals – 8 Pieces

I received my deal package earlier this month and I'll be posting some projects made with it next Monday, the 15th.  As always, it is a great value and you will have enough items to make lots of beautiful cards and layouts.  The card at the top of this post is one I made a while ago using some of the "Groovy Petals"  flowers and "Loop d'Loop" brads.

The gem brads and gem stickers are perfect for adding bling to a Christmas ornament - I think there might be a golden snowflake appearing on my blog soon!  I think my favorite item this month might be the orange and red sheer flowers - lots of possibilities with these!

I have one more quick tip for you.  I love the idea of the new Gingerbread cartridge but I was not overly impressed with the images.  I thought for a moment and remembered Stretch Your Imagination - I think I can make all of the gingerbread items I want with this cartridge which is one of the first I ever owned (it came in a bundle with my first Expression three years ago).  I did not order the Gingerbread cartridge and now I can put that money toward Ornamental Iron, Quarter Note, Wrap it Up and Paper Lace (and maybe even Car Decals...) - well... every little bit helps!

I am finally starting to get over the cold and have almost recovered my voice.  I have a lot to do this week but I will try to get a snowflake tutorial or video done so you can see how easy it is to build a snowflake.  I need to get my layout for the Cricut Cruise contest done and submitted by the end of the week - I think I have a plan but I keep changing my mind!

  1. Thanks for the tip on using Stretch Your Imagination rather than buying the new Gingerbread cartridge. Your examples look so cute!

  2. I figured I could use another cart for making my own gingerbread in brown & white, so thanks for the reminder that SYI will work perfectly!

  3. thank you so much for telling us about the SYI cartridge. I have that one also. You are so amazing. Thanks for saving me money!!!!

  4. What a great blog entry today. Love how you used the ms punch and those embellishments and the gingerbread idea is great too as I have SYI and never seem to use it. Maybe now I will.

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Diane,
    You are so right. I only wish I had thought of that. I bought the holiday bundle which included all three. Even thou I wasn't that crazy about Gingerbread Cart images either. Not only that, but they still don't have the gypsy update for these carts. Haven't checked DS studio yet.

  6. Thanks for the tip. I also thought the images were a little simplistic and limited. Hopefully, I can purchase Wrap It Up soon.

  7. Thanks for the notices on Creative Charms - really nice items. :-)
