The Sniffles - and some things to share...

Sneezing and sniffling, drinking tea and staying close to home - I hope this cold ends quickly!  There are a few things that I want to share - some deals that will end soon.

Cricut Moving Sale

I have a variety of die cut machines and software.  My first machine was the Cricut and I still enjoy using it for quick and easy projects.  I have a large library of cartridges and have slowed the pace of my purchases as I started using the Cameo since I can create my own custom designs with it.

I do find that sometimes I turn to the Cricut when I have the perfect cartridge to create a project.  There are a few newer cartridges that I have my eye on so I was happy to hear about a sale on physical cartridges.

The Cricut warehouse is moving, so all physical cartridges are on sale for 40% off through January 8th at 12 a.m.  Click HERE to go to the site and shop.  (note - this sale has ended).

You can also get free shipping on your order - just use the use the code MOVINGSHIP at checkout.

Layout a Day - February 2014

If one of your resolutions or goals for this year is to do more scrapbooking, the Layout a Day (LOAD) program in February is a great motivator.  If you follow along and participate for the entire month you will have 28 finished layouts.  You will also have lots of fun along the way with daily videos,  sample layouts and a private Flickr group where participants share their pages and stories.

This time the theme is "Scrapbook Mythbusters" and we will spend the month breaking all the written and unwritten scrapbook rules that might be holding you back from creating pages and sharing your stories.

I have participated in LOAD and even completed the full month last May.  Paper, digital or hybrid scrappers are all welcome.  I really enjoyed working with the prompts - sometimes my pages were right on target for the prompt and other days it was more of a stretch, but the prompts do get you thinking.  The feedback in the gallery is also a very helpful.

This event only happens twice a year and almost always sells out. 

Here is a special deal for my readers - you can get a 30% discount with code BUST through January 10.   Click HERE to see all of the details and sign up.

Free Scrapinar - January 8th

The free Scrapinar presented by Lain Ehmann this month is all about planning for a Project Life or Pocket Page project.  I am attempting this again this year and it seems like a good way to remember the little things that happen that may not make it into a more formal scrapbook.  Traci Reed will share her process for planning and organizing this type of project.

If you are interested in pocket page scrapping, sign up for the free Scrapinar by clicking HERE.  there will be a replay available for a short time if you can't attend live but you must be registered to have access to the recorded version.

one more thing...

Spellbinders is celebrating their Diamond Anniversary with a sneak peek and giveaway.  Design Team members are highlighting the new dies that will be shown at CHA and you can enter to win the sets that are shown each day.  One lucky winner will win all of the new items and a Grand Caliber machine and Raspberry Plate (worth over $600).  You can read all of the rules HERE on the Spellbinders site. 

This weather is so crazy - please be careful if you are in the ares with extreme temperatures. I hope that tomorrow I'll be feeling a bit better so I can do something crafty!

  1. I hope none of my cold-ridden family gave you your cold on Saturday, although I think your husband had one already then...

    Get rid of the darn cold, and put up pics of your craft room, please. I'm one of the lucky ones who's gotten to see it, so I know your readers would love it! :)

  2. Hope you're feeling better, soon! I still love my Cricut, and I just had Santa deliver a new E2 for Christmas, so I'm learning some new things that the E1 didn't' have . I think about the Cameo, but for now, I'm still a Cricut fan. Take care. BethAnn M.
