Last day...

We're fast approaching the finish line on a lot of great Close To My Heart products and my July specials!  Below is the list of what's left, but things will run out throughout the day, so if there's something you want, you better put the pedal to the metal!

Today is the last day to take advantage my FREE M-Stamp offer whenever you make a $50 purchase on my website.  Remember, too, that a $50 purchase makes you eligible to pick up the Circus Alphabet Stamp of the Month for only $5 and the new 2014/2015 Annual Inspirations Idea Book for FREE!  

Speaking of the new Idea Book, it goes live tomorrow!!!  If you haven't seen the book yet (my club ladies received theirs last week...one of the perks), you will be able to see it online starting tomorrow.  If you want a hard copy, you can purchase one for $10, which includes shipping.  Starting August 1st, the minimum purchase requirement for a free idea book will be $50, but if you remember, today is also the last day to take advantage of a special offer to get the Idea Book for free with just a $30 minimum order.  If you want one, just CONTACT ME and do it quickly...no time for a pit stop. ;)

Cricut Project of the Week & FREE CCR Cutting File

As I shared with you last week, the newest addition to the Close To My Heart Cricut family won't be available until sometime in August.  Once I get that sucker in my hand, I'll get some projects completed and then share them, but for now I'm going to share with you a project that I created for the attendees that stayed the entire weekend at my Scrapper's Rx Weekend Scrapbooking Retreat that took place this past June. (By the way, there's another one in September from the 18th through the 21st. It only takes a $75 deposit to hold your spot. See link at top of page.)

There are multiple cuts for this project, but they all are created using just one cartridge...Artbooking.  I have included a cutting file below for the shapes that I cut using the cartridge. None of my square cuts, though, were cut with the Cricut.  I've also included the page #, size and cardstock for each shape below each corresponding photo, along with special notes. Also, keep in mind that some of the items are retiring soon and are indictated in red type within the supply list below. 


Cut two of the overlays. The one that goes on the cover has had two horizontal rows cut off.  The other will go on the back page.
I just used scrap pieces of Sweet Leaf cardstock to back the triangular banner pennants, but you could cut an additional banner in Sweet Leaf, if you desired.
I wanted a thin frame of cardstock around the photo that had pointed corners rather than rounded, so I decided to use on this frame and trimmed off the chevron band that goes across.  Of course, depending on your photos, this frame would be a perfect complement to the album just as it is.
In order to keep the band part of the border closer to the width of the teal shimmer trim, I cut it at 3/4" Real Dial Size.  However, this causes it not to go all the way across the page, so I cut it in half and covered the gap with the photo mat.

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):

Would you like a copy of my Cricut Cutting File, so you can use them in your mini album?  If so, you can download it here for FREE.
Note: You must own the Artbooking cartridge in order to cut this file.  If you don't have it and would like to purchase it, you can find it on my website, or contact me to find out how to get it for 1/2 off.  Also, I'm providing this cutting file for your personal use. Please be respectful and give credit when appropriate. Muchas gracias!

Don't forget about the special promotions that I have going on this month....


Until next time...
