Magnolia Frame

Saturday, January 26 at 1pm at My House


We're going to be making this gorgeous, versatile frame.  Everything is pre-cut.  It comes with both options, the weathered grey and the natural brown frame as well as both sentiments.  

Add this to your calendar now!  If you cannot make it, the kits are available to purchase.  I'm also looking to schedule another date.  Please send me an email or leave a comment on my blog on a date that works for you.  

I'm also accepting requests to host a private workshop with you and your friends.  Let's chat and pick a date!  

This frame is available now through the end of January, while supplies last so it won't be available for long!

Magnolia Frame Now Available to Pre-Order!



I'm so excited about the January Special Magnolia Frame!  And as of today, I can accept pre-orders and start shipping them to you.  (On Jan 1, you can order them on your own).


This is the 1st frame I created.  It's currently at Tabby's Coffee at the Everett Public Library because I'll be hosting a Saturday afternoon workshop there in February!  Date TBA.  

I'll also be hosting a workshop in my home on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at 1pm. 
Want a different date?  Let's talk and make it happen!  

This frame kit is virtually scissor free!  Just add adhesive.  Liquid Glass is recommended.

Season of Joy Project Roundup

I've had so much fun with the Season of Joy Cricut Collection.  This collection retires at the end of the month and may sell out so I thought I'd give you a last chance to purchase it before it's gone!
Please remember this is a digital collection and can only be used on the new Cricut Explore & Maker machines via Design Space.

 My Magical Village was based on the houses from the collection!

There's an Advent Advent Calendar!  
This version is available as a workshop on my website until the end of the year or while supplies last! 

A Wreath!  
There's so many color options for this!

Gift Card Mugs

The new Season of Joy Cricut Collection is on of my favorite toys right now.  Have you seen all of the projects I've created with it lately?  No? Don't go away looking quite yet.  Sit and enjoy a cup of coffee with my coffee mug gift card holders.

I used the Tis The Season paper pack for them and had so much fun.  I must note that the mug is from the Flower Market Cricut Collection by CTMH.  You'll need both to create these fun gift card holders.  They also fit in an A2 envelope so you can send them.  But seriously, I'm not sure if I can hide their cuteness in an envelope.



First came Gingy.  That's the gingerbread man in the Shrek movies. 


Then my son wanted to drown Gingy (feet up) instead I selected this adorable Elf Legs from the Season of Joy Collection.  That's all the elf that they made.  

And lastly, because my file gets 3 mug from a single sheet of paper, I created the candy cane.  

I used the stamp set Love With All the Trimmings CC10188 which is still available but originally released for the Holiday Sparkle shaker cards!



If you purchased the Season of Joy Collection from me, my custom Design Space File has been emailed to you!  If not, order the Season of Joy Cricut Collection here.  And grab Flower Market too!  

This collection is only compatible with the Explore & Maker Cricut series machines and Design Space.  

The best place to see my other Season of Joy projects is on Instagram.  

Want the file but already own the cartridge?  
Order the Workshop Guide for $6 USD.



You will receive the Design Space File, Workshop Guide and Consultant Release to reproduce this kit for your own customers (but not share the file)
