I'm Back!!! NEW Kit NOW Available for Ordering!

 Hey Gigglin' Hearts Fans, Friends & Family!

If you follow my personal pages & FB you will know my husbands Sean's battle with cancer ended Aug 25th, 2022 unfortunately. He fought for 3 VERY long years. I am grateful for all your support during that time. I appreciate your patience more than you will ever know. 

I LOVE him so very much. I miss him EVERYDAY! Aug 28th would have been our 29th anniversary. The last 4 months have been super difficult. One day I'm fine, the next I'm a mess. Its very very taxing. So I'm hoping I can find some relief in being creative again and that being said I NEED to get back to work.

I am unsure if I will be able to continue with CTMH or not. If I can support myself with my CTMH income alone. This year - 2023 will be the test. On November 7th, 2022 I celebrated my 25th Anniversary with CTMH and I couldn't even celebrate that feet because of my grief. SOOOO Like Disney, since this is my 25th year, we will have a special surprise each month to celebrate!

First up is a "Starter Back" kit for me.

Its not my typical kit. There is no Cricut cuts. I am unsure how I am going to design, do guides, proof and cut everything with out Sean's help. I only purchased 11 of them. Typically I would do 25-30 kits. So this is EXTREMELY limited. However I will say this is a GREAT kit for people with little time OR for people just starting out, and anyone that LOVES to just play with papers! HA! You will love this album when it is complete!


Pre-Recorded Videos will be Available & FEB 11th, 2023

  • Black& Clear Shimmer Brush
  • 1 Pink Sponge Dauber
  • Adhesives of all sorts


A couple things to NOTE:

1) I ended up having a little hospital visit & un-expected DR appts the past 2 weeks so since the materials retired 3/31, I went ahead and pre-ordered enough for my regular number of kits.  HURRY though! It could possibly sell out early. 

2)Kits should start shipping around April 25th & Our online FB Classes will be May 13 & 14th.

3)There will unfortunately NOT be E-Files for purchase for this kit. For a couple reasons - The cricut files on these larger kits have become an on-going nightmare. I used CTMH Digital SVG files - again a Nightmare and i cannot share any modifications I used on them. I also used inspiration from CTMH and other Makers in designing a few of these pages & I don't feel right "selling" them. I also was able to use some oldies but goodies on this kit that I think added nicely to it.  AND lastly people & probably the biggest reason, people have just gotten very difficult for me to deal with regarding "cricut" and what they own & don't own & the error messages, etc. For me, right now its just too much. If you'd like to make my pages, I promise you the kit is worth EVERY penny! Have some fun, spoil yourself & enjoy!!! This kit especially is AMAZING! AND you'll be helping my family too! We appreciate every order!!!

4)The kit is $125 for 20 pages!!! I am very happy with how the pages worked out & used every last scrap of paper I swear. So the value alone is wonderful! Plus I was able to take advantage of the Cardstock savings. CTMH charges $250+ for their 20 page kits. 

5) There is an AMAZING Bonus Bundle I've put together for you! Every year I try to do one Fundraiser to help Operation Smile AND benefit YOU! This bundle is a $75+ value for only $60 and includes 3 amazing stamp sets + 12 Sheets of our newly retired Coated Cardstock!!! That once you play with it, if you haven't already you will LOVE it!!!! So its like getting that Cardstock FREE! You will SAVE $15 AND as an extra Bonus, CTMH donates $7 to Operation Smile from every stamp set, AND I'm going to match it for every bundle purchased and donate $7 myself!!! SO Save $15, Donate $14!!! Win, Win!

OoOOH My Gosh! Have I said I'm excited lately! 

Seriously, I'm so excited to be getting back to WORKING! I just can't tell you how good it is for my soul. 

Every day, I struggle with fear about how much longer Sean is going to live. Every day is different and so my life is still a hot mess. The biggest thing that has changed is the PRESSURE about where I'm going to live after he passes and how I'm going to live once he is gone. Right now, Chemo is still working so that is GREAT news and he is stable. He will never be "cured" but he's past his 6 months they gave him & we just pray and appreciate every day we have left together.

SO more good news, the old house has SOLD, the closing should be this week & things are all moving in the right direction. If I haven't Thank'd you lately, then THANK YOU for all your amazing support, patience, prayers, and kindness. I'm hoping life for a little while will finally have some consistency instead of constant ciaos! Whoo Hooo! Wouldn't that be a Christmas Miracle???

At any rate I wanted to give you a little break down of the upcoming months & what is happening & I would LOVE to start doing some online and in person classes!!!

I got the inspiration from Kards by Kadie & Chris Robertson

To make my version, you will need the Smitten Paper & the Cardstock Collection.

  • Capri Cardstock 3-1/2" x 11" Scored at 2-3/4" & 5-1/2"
  • Capri Cardstock 3-1/2" x 4-3/4"

  • Smitten Printed Paper 3-1/4 x 4-1/2"
  • White Cardstock 2-3/4" x 4"
Its really very easy to make. Score the Capri Cardstock first. Fold it in half. Add the additional piece of Capri Cardstock to the front of the scored portion. Be sure to only adhere adhesive to the first section on the scored piece.  Fold that flap and rest it against the post-its.

Such a FUN simple easy little gifty!

Christmas & Wonderland Page Kits

 NOW Available!!!

I am SO excited to be back & working. I have missed be present and creating so much.


If you haven't heard, we moved. My family purchased a house for us so we could get the old one fixed up. I wanted Sean to enjoy the Holidays and get settled so we plan on working on the old house & getting it listed very soon. Such a HUGE weight has been lifted off of us both not knowing where I was going to be. I couldn't afford the old house unfortunately & there just wasn't room for the dogs. SO we downsized our house, purging 15 years of "STUFF" and upsized our yard. We are truly grateful. Grateful for you my amazing customers for being so patient with me. And grateful for all the help this past year with everything. It has been a very emotional and hard year.

For Sean, many are asking about him. Right now he's on stabilizing chemo. Which sounds wonderful but really it is just to not overwhelm his system. Unfortunately, that is all they can do for him right now. He still has Stage 4 Colon Cancer. So please continue prayers for him & us. He was pretty emotional over the Holidays, thinking it might be his last.  We made sure it was a special one just in case. Lots of Joy and tears around here. We had a wonderful Christmas. I hope you did too. 

ON TO the Good News! Now that things are getting settled here are my first kits! Perfect time for preserving those Holiday and Winter memories!


Filled with FUN, this kit with its generic colors will be GREAT for all your Christmas Memories! AND as an EXTRA bonus, I've included 2 title options for 2 of the layouts! PLUS we're using the SO CUTE acrylic letters! OMGosh I LOVE them.
