#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!


#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!


#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 have 10 of this kit ready to be cut!



EEEK - Have you been to Galaxy's Edge yet? I have not and I am SO eager to go. Maybe you didn't grab this kit when it was available but will be going soon!

HURRY I only have 6 of this kit available.

Here is the original post & the actual pages to see. Click Here.


#BB Harry Potter

Another kit I get asked about ALL the time if I have any more of & to begin with I only had a very limited supply. This one I ONLY have 5 of! HURRY!

Here is the Original Post with all the details.

Also please NOTE: We had some un-expected events with Sean's health the past few weeks, so I'm behind & i do apologize for the last minute "Crunch". I did the best I could. 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!

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.

Home Sign - Traditional & DISNEY Style

 Hi Friends!

Did you know its PAPERCRAFTING Month?

Close to My Heart has put together an AMAZING & SUPER Cute Kit Limited Edition set to help celebrate! And what a better project than something for your Home!

The set they've created is REALLY CUTE! And the pictures do NOT do it justice. In person its beautiful.

So check that out first.... AND THEN scroll down to see my "Gone Rogue" Disney Style Home Sign!

Here's the Cute Video that shows all the pieces!

Home Sweet Home DISNEY STYLE

I was having SO much FUN with this kit, I couldn't stop. For my Disney peeps, you are GOING to LOVE this!!! I've got 4 options below & 2 different sets for a total of 29 Disney & Mickey heads. Some are BRAND NEW designs, some are oldies but goodies and ALL are SUPER CUTE!!!! OH MY GOSH I had so much FUN with this!


All options come with THIS frame, un-painted "Home" sign, Generic Mickey Head for a Photo, the Heart, the background paper, 2 magnets and the Ribbon! This is the STARTER!

The FRAME is 16" x 16" in size and a little larger, more substantial and more expensive than the Frame above! It is actually paper but beautifully done with the nice 2" wood framing surround. Shipping for this oversized piece is included and will most likely ship UPS vs. USPS. 

There are 2 options to choose from regarding the Pieces....  Disney CHARACTERS & SEASONAL Mickeys......Your going to want them BOTH!!! LOL they are SO cute!

Each image is just about 6.5" in size when they are all said & done.  I can only really get 2 on a sheet of paper. But seriously.... THEY are SO CUTE! 😍😍😍

The Kits will come complete with 1 or 2 sets of Wood Circles & Magnets, the Shaker pieces, Glitter Cardstock, Dots, Foil paper, our amazing CTMH Cardstock ALL PRE-CUT and ready for assembly! Even the thin cut pieces. It also includes shipping, FREE Colored Instructions, plus Emailed guides. There will NOT be Cricut files included. The cuts will be sorted by color & you will need to find the pieces for each Mickey. Shipping I'm hoping to start shipping them around Feb 10th.

This is for US Shipping only.

Please NOTE: You will need to add your own sequins, black paint, stickles and shimmer brushing. That list of materials will be emailed to you once you purchase a kit.

SEASONAL Mickeys Set


Are you ready to SHOP?

OPTION 1) Seasonal Mickey BUNDLE w/ Frame Starter Pre-Cut Kit $78
This includes the Frame Starter bundle & 14 Seasonal Mickeys all pre-cut. Dots, Ribbons AND Shaker pieces. Plus shipping & Printed instructions!

OPTION 2) Disney Characters BUNDLE w/ Frame Starter Pre-Cut Kit $78
This includes the Frame Starter bundle & 14 Disney CHARACTERS all pre-cut. Dots, Ribbons AND Shaker pieces. Plus shipping & Printed instructions!

OPTION 3) I can't RESIST Bundle - They are ALL so CUTE!  Total $119!
Whoooo HOOO! This is BOTH sets of characters for a total of 29 qty 6" Mickeys & Characters, The Frame starter kit and 2 sets of the wood circles, magnets, dots, ribbons AND shaker pieces. Plus special THANK YOU! 

Don't want the "HOME" sign but want my images?

This is a set of all 29 images PRE-CUT in aprox a 4" size. Perfect for my scrapbookers! 

Shipping is included too! The bundle includes Glitter paper, Foil Paper, our amazing CTMH Cardstocks, Dots & Ribbon & ready for quick assembly. That's $2 for each image & I do all the hard work, the CUTTING! You'll need to add sequins, stickles, shimmer brushing to bling them up. Unfortunately the shaker pieces won't fit so they are not included. $2 for a 4" Mickey head PRE-CUT. That really is a great buy!

Unfortunately there will NOT be an E-FILE available for this kit. I know many of you enjoy them & it really is with great disappointment for me. I may offer it at a later time. Cricut has been such a royal nightmare & continues to be a daily basis in my world. People are frustrated and I completely understand. Believe me, I am too. So for now please understand I need to do this so I don't end up quitting all together & so you don't all end up hating me. Because that's how I feel literally EVERY DAY in regards to my E-Files. 
That being said too, I still have hundreds of files to update under their new program. And I apologize again for being so behind on them. Unfortunately I still need to work & provide my part of our income & stopping all together to get them caught up is a lot of strain & pressure. Not doing the guides is strain all on its own for us so THANK YOU for being patient & understanding.


LASTLY Check this OUT!

SO I ruined mine & that's what brought this about. It was so discouraging. I worked so hard on creating these pieces and then not only ruined my sign but had to "Re-Do" 8 of the image pieces. 

That's when I realized they would fit in our cute Stamp organizer AND the stamp sleeves!
The fit PERFECTLY.  AND the stamp sleeves are a MUST. They keep the magnets from ruining the papers and marking them up. They are a little cha-ching though. BUT so worth it! This sign will last you for years. Why not protector your investment & time creating them!!!

If you ordered the I couldn't RESIST BUNDLE (both sets) then you'll need 2 boxes & 10 packs of the stamp sleeves. I'm not offering that as a Bundle because I couldn't ship them to me & then to you and save you any money. As a VIP though, you can SAVE 15% on your NEXT order, making it around $78  to protect BOTH sets! Half if your only creating one!

Z1038 My Acrylix Organizer

Z335 Stamp Envelopes 3 per pack!
You will need 5 for 1 sets OR 10 for both!

BONUS!!!! When you order them Directly on my WEBSITE, I will send you everything to Label & decorate the boxes for FREE!
