OOOOH one last thing. I have a HUGE BHAG! Big Hairy Audacious Goal!

I know this really is going to be a  LONG shot but I am close to Earning the CTMH Hawaii Trip in Feb 2022. I really had kind of given up with everything going on. BUT this one has a special meaning for Sean and I. Hawaii is a special place for us. We haven't been in 10 years when I earned the last CTMH trip.  We got screwed out of Tahiti, they canceled New York and we had to cancel our Disney trip. I'd really like to earn this for him. It will be his 50th Birthday March 2nd. The last day of the trip. And with all the other stress going on, I just would LOVE this relaxation for him in his final days. And yes unfortunately if he makes it to March, it will be his Final Days.

You all have been SO amazing in helping us. I really can not tell you how much we appreciate all your support. I have exactly a month to go! If you are able & want some of the fun NEW products, please know its helping to ful-fill a final wish!

Thank you! Ginni & Sean

I LOVE You Mini Albums

I am SOOOOO Excited about these cute albums! 

I will admit, with Sean's because of his prognosis I probably cried about every picture & the wonderful memories we've had. I did enjoy creating the Album so much OR LOVED the finished one, that I decided to create a girly version as well.

They both are so Special! Its an easy, quick Mini album to highlight some of your favorite pictures for someone you love. Either will make GREAT Gifts!

Father's Day is coming, & we'll be cutting them / getting them out ASAP! I'm hoping for them to ship June 7th. If I get too many orders, we'll do the manly (red) one first & then do the girly ones.

GUIDES: are coming later this week but I don't want to post them until I get them done. The shopping lists for both albums are below. I will send a FB Post out when they are available to purchase.

KITS: several of the items are on sale for these kits SO if you Order before Tuesday at 6 PM PST, you will get the discount. Which is WHY I'm posting them now. I'd love to help save you a bit!

#Bring Back my Kit SALE


I am SO excited to finally be able to offer this.

Many of you have been SO amazing and have asked "What can I do to Help?"

And we started to brain storm that answer.....

The short answer is I need HELP. Unfortunately what I'm behind on are only things that I can do! 

I need to be able to get caught up on the computer work & fixing the E-files. So the whole world stops hating me.  AND unfortunately I still need to keep working along side fixing the Cricut issues. CTMH does help to pay our bills so during this time when my family is dealing with serious Health issues, its been very HARD to work. We just found out Sean's Cancer is back & in 5 spots in his body. Spreading like hot cakes. Which is NOT good.  Its been a very difficult. A lot of emotional distress, DR appts up the wazoo and so much stress and worry. I am so far behind.

I've been finding and collecting older materials that I've already made great kits out of & it would HELP me tremendously if you needed or missed any of these kits to take them off my hands. 

I've also grabbed a few VIP kits that my VIPs didn't want & can ship to you Disney style OR generic! AND guess what? They brought back the phone stands!!!! So if you didn't get some the first time, they make GREAT gifts!

My mom & Sean & other friends have offered to help with the cutting. The kits are already designed, the instructions are already done & it will free up time for ME to work on the computer, get files caught up, etc & still bring in an income. If you've already done these, no worries, maybe a friend would like one OR maybe you just bought the guide and haven't done it yet? 

I have some GREAT kits incase you missed any of them!

AND THE DEAL.... If you buy 2 or more kits (over $100), you'll save $20 off!

COUPON Code at CHECK: BBSAVE20

#BB VIP Disney Magic Kit


If you aren't my VIP, guess what???? 
A few of my amazing VIP's volunteered their kits for YOU to buy!

It is SO crazy CUTE!!! It is 8 pages & 8 adorable cards! All with the Disney Flair!

Cost is $67 for the kit from CTMH, Extra Embellishments, Shipping to you, Cutting Guide printed and ALL the Cricut Cuts!

You will need some additional materials & you will need to cut your own pages, but I've done videos to help with that.

HERE is the Original Link for all the pictures.


#BB Phone Holders


JUST in TIME! CTMH Brought back the phone stands. The Mickey & Minnie paper designs maybe a different but similar! It just depends on how many you all want.

CHOOSE 2 Designs for ONLY $20!

Includes 2 qty Wood Holders, papers pre-CUT (Front & Back)! Any Extra Embellishments! PLUS shipping to you!

Email me which ones you would like after you order!

Will SHIP end of March! Easy to Assemble! Limited SUPPLY!

PURCHASE HERE

#BB Magical


Hooray!!! This has been one of my most popular kits to date! It is TRULY Magical.

The designs will be those pictured only with the "Magical" papers, vs the more magical. The only real difference is the blues. It uses Crystal Blue vs. Carolina and Sapphire vs. Bluebird.  Still GREAT colors & will look adorable.

The Pre-Cut Kit is $75 and includes everything you will need except the stamp sets. Here is the link for the original post. I did not use the stamps much and it shows all the details. Click Here

I'm posting a video of what I have done. I am completed up to "V".  I have all the cricut cuts & designs laid out for the rest of the Alphabet. It will be A-Z! Its just assembling at this point. I will post an update later in the week. 

This is only a FEW of the Layouts! There is 60 pages all together!




















REAL Life A-Z Pre-CUT Album Kit $249.95

Please note: Because I am SO grateful for all your support, I generally have one kit a year I give you a special deal on. This is 60+ pages / 30 layouts. The regular price would be $3 a layout $90!!!  This is 50% off.

PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST HAVE CRICUT ACCESS and CTMH CARTRIDGES.

IF YOU ARE A NOVICE CRICUT user I DO NOT recommend purchasing this guide! You will be much happier with the Kit. It is a LOT of cuts & it requires a lot of time & ownership of a lot of images. If you do not have Access I again would NOT recommend purchasing this. 

I am trying one last ditch effort to make the guides work. PLEASE do not assume its something that I've done wrong if you get error messages when cutting it. Most likely you don't own ALL the images I used. Design Space has also been a COMPLETE nightmare lately. I have multiple people test the files so when I release them, they "WORK" correctly.
