17 years ago!

Well here we are! The upper left picture was 17 years ago when we traveled to Phoenix International Raceway to attend the NASCAR events. One week later we flew to Las Vegas & got married! Over the years we have returned to Phoenix several times to see the races. Picture bottom left is one of our many camping trips at the track!
Scrapbooking has let me preserve these memories so they can be enjoyed over & over!
I hope you are preserving your heartwarming memories too!

Sparkle & Shine!

A couple weeks ago when I opened my box with all the new things from the CTMH Holidays from the Heart Gift Guide I fell in love with the Sparkle & Shine Washi Tape! So far I have two projects to share with you....
The banners hanging down on this card are strips of each of the 3 washi tapes mounted on White Daisy CS and trimmed. The top banner is one of the zip strips from the paper pack.
Next is my 2013 Gift Card Holder. Every year I design a gift card holder. I use these for my customers who purchase a gift certificate. Even a gift card or gift certificate should have a fun package to open!
The box and tag are both cut with the CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge.
The tag is stamped with the October Stamp of the Month, Scandinavian Wishes. Oct 31st will be the last day to order this stamp set.

Let me show you how! Halloween Papercrafting Session 1

Starting now! I am offering Holiday papercrafting sessions!
This is Halloween Session 1 created with the CTMH Cricut cartridges.
This session will be a $10 - 2 hour session. You don't need to own a Cricut to participate in these sessions. All shapes will be pre-cut so the project is ready to assemble.
Here's a closeup that shows some of the sparkle!

You can contact me at to schedule your Halloween papercrafting session.

Thank you & Happy Halloween!

Also, many of you have asked me if I'm on facebook - well now I can tell you "Yes! I am!" You'll find me at Pssmitty papercrafts.
