I’m off to a scrapbooking retreat hosted by my friend Linda Neff .

We’ve been going to Sunset Shores in Clare, MI for some time now. It’s an old-fashioned resort on a lake with cabins. The basement of the main house has been turned into a great scrapbooking (or any other crafting) room. And Vivian, the owner, is an amazing cook. She makes incredible meals from scratch using locally grown foods. ┬áThe food is so good, I’ve told my husband that he needs to go with me just to eat!

Anyhow, this time Linda has set up a special retreat. We’ll be making a mini-album, a window and an ornament. It’s going to be a great time filled with good friends and good food.

But, before I go, I wanted to share some exciting news.

I was published in June’s Cricut Magazine!

I had two cards published this time … both using the Cricut cartridge from Close To My Heart.

 

on page 76-77 and

on page 64-65

The company mixed up the tips for the two cards, so the tip on page 64 actually goes with the card on 76, but it’s wonderful to be published!

See you next week with pictures of the projects I made.

One of my cards was published in Cricut Magazine’s March issue.

This was a really big deal for me because I have submitted many projects to many magazines many times over and this was the first that said, “yes.”

It’s funny because I don’t really consider myself a great cardmaker, but there it is in living color.

This card is made with papers from My Mind’s Eye, a stamp from Tim Holtz and Dickie, the name my friends and I gave this adorable bird in the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge by Cricut. I like how easy the die cuts are to layer when cut with the Cricut. It gives the die some dimension. For additional dimension, I covered him in Diamond Glaze by JudiKins. It gives him the look of an epoxy sticker and makes him really stand out.
