DIY planner stickers using your Cricut Explore.

I have finally got around to doing some planner stickers with my Cricut Explore Air. I love this machine. And the great part is, I don't have to lug around all those cartridges, they are all loaded in the Cricut Design Space software. I know some are staying away from the explore air because you do have to have Internet access to use it. And if you have limited access to the Internet then this may not be the machine for you. But for those of you, like me, who work on the Internet all the time anyway and are fortunate enough to have good access then this is the best. I love that I can also access  Design Space from my phone, my iPad and my Android tablet. I can create designs and save them then when I am ready to cut just go to my Cricut and hit go!! I can sit anywhere and create, at the doctors office, in line picking up the kids, traveling, while someone else drives of course lol. Let me know if you have a Cricut Explore and what you are making.

Having Fun Yet??

Well it is Friday are we having fun yet? How do you have fun, is it with crafty friends, alone with your radio, at a crafty retreat...tell us how you have the most fun when you craft. Maybe it is just when you are creating for someone else.

I tend to have the most fun when I am at a crafty retreat. I don't necessarily get a lot of crafting done but I learn so much from everyone that is there. We share ideas, eat laugh, talk, do projects together and just relax and have some crafty girl time.

Tell us how you have the most crafty fun.

We use a combination of lots of things, and it is whatever works for you. I am always looking for something that makes the creating a little easier. So please share!

Here is a little photo of some of mine lol.

Julie Nutting, Basic Grey, Art Basics....

Wednesday "Rewinds" Lets rewind the clock!!

Okay so lets rewind the clock to...hummmm about 5 years ago. Tell me what you were doing then in the craft world. Were you doing basic scrapbooking, cardmaking, mixed media, painting, drawing, mini albums, etc. Let us know how your taste has changed and how you have evolved over the years.

Five years ago I was doing basic scrapbooking, nothing fancy, nothing out of the ordinary just basic stuff.  Knew nothing about mixed media lol, had no clue how to paint, and still don't, and I don't have the patience to make cards. So my world has evolved a lot over the years. Not saying it is better by any means just takes in more crafty "stuff". I am "jack of all trades and master of none", but I love to play with it all!! What about you?? Show us a photo! Yes get up go get that album or project down and show us a photo, it will take 2 minutes.

Tuesday "Trials" or "Try-All"?

It is our Tuesday "Trials" or Try-All as it is know today. Today I would like you to tell me what all adhesives you have tried? If you are like me you have tried a little of everything to see what works best for you and your location. And yes it does matter what location you are in. Some adhesives dry better in one location than the other. And then some adhesives will not dry at all depending on your location and climate. I live in a hot humid climate so some adhesives do not work well for me, they stay tacky so I have to adjust. But I have tried them all, here is a little pile of ones that I use and love!!

Tell me yours.

Friday "Fun Day"! LET LOOSE!!

It is Friday!! Fun Day!! Friday is a day most everyone looks forward to, the day before the weekend starts, the last work day of the week, for most, so we look forward to Friday. Years ago Friday was our "let loose" day at work. We had to dress up everyday of the week but Friday, that was the day the bosses let us be loose, or wear our jeans anyway. It was fun not having to wear your best outfits, heels, stockings...oops I am telling my age lol. Most companies don't make their employees dress up anymore, so I guess everyday is a loose day for them. lol

Okay lets bring this back around to crafting. What is the product you can "LET LOOSE" with, have fun, feel free, make a mess...mine would have to be sprays. I love my sprays. I love to blast a piece of paper with a beautiful spray and watch it change colors right before my eyes. Or take a white flower and pump a few pumps of spray on them and see a beautiful new creation. I like getting it all over my hands, making a mess on my desk and just simply having fun letting loose and playing. Tell me what your "LET LOOSE" product is.

Thursday "Throw Back" - and it is Epic!

Well it is Thursday "Throw Back" time!! And I have a question for all of you.

If there was just one thing in your stash that you could "Throw Back", in other words get your money back on, what would it be??

Mine would be and old Epic die cutting machine, that I have used but have broken three of. These things weren't worth the money it cost to ship them. Don't ever buy one if you see one out there for sale they are awful!! Well at least in my opinion they are. Hopefully someone else has had better luck with them than me.

Wednesday, September 9, 2015


I was so busy with the sale and the Holiday that I completely missed our "Monday Mentions", "Tuesday Trials" and  "Wednesday Windups". Well I will just promise to put up a good post for tomorrow for our "Thursday Throw Back".  

Just a little info before I go. The sale turned out wonderfully. We had a great time interacting with the shoppers. And I know they got lots of awesome products at great prices. 

We will have one more BIG sale before the end of the year and that will be our inventory close out sale. We will give you more information on that later on. So stay tuned. Go to the top left of our blog and sign up for our newsletter so you don't miss a thing. 

Also we want to welcome Jenifer Stephens to our admin team. She graciously accepted on Monday and we are thrilled!! We have already put her to work lol. 

Ok so I guess I did have plenty to "mention" after all, and Jenifer will go through lots of learning "trials" and we hope she "winds up" staying a long long time. :) so there you go our three days all in one. Lol. 

Catch you tomorrow! E

Featured Artist & Will You Be A Winner???

Well I was so busy yesterday that I completely forgot to do our "Monday Mentions", but I always say it is never to late! So we will be doing our "Monday Mentions'' and our "Tuesday Trials' together, hope you don't mind.

Monday Mentions:

We have a lot to mention this Monday. Coming up this weekend will be our annual "Labor Day Weekend Clearance Sale", and on my, is it going to be a big one! I am just going to post the beautiful banner Beatriz did for us. That has all the information, as well as the link to the Facebook shop. If you would rather go straight to the shop and not have to copy and past the link you can click HERE. You will need to ask to join, we keep the sale group private for security reasons. We want everyone to feel at home safe and secure when shopping for crafty supplies.

We also need to mention our September newsletter. The newsletter went out on Aug 30th to everyone who was signed up. If you have not yet signed up go to top left of this page, the sign up form is there. We always include lots of goodness in our newsletters and this month we added a surprise, we are now choosing a "Featured Artist" each month from our members room. We will be posting a photo of one of their projects and a little info about them. Also it is a surprise, no one but me and the admins know who will be the Featured Artist until the newsletter goes out. So lets keep those projects posting in the members room so I will have a hard time choosing our October Featured Artist. Keep an eye out, you might just be featured in our next newsletter. Also in the next newsletter we will have a surprise gift for one person on the newsletter list. No one will know who it is until you get your newsletter, could be you! Look for your name in the body of the newsletter, in a really random spot, and if it is there you will win a ?????? surprise from SWMEB. 

Tuesday Trials:

This will be another question week. We want to know what your Tri-al product is in your scrappy stash. In other words what is the product you have the most of, the largest supply. We have tried them all. lol  Mine is paper, paper, paper, I love paper. I have paper from every part of the world known to man lol. I have florals, prints, solids, textured, glitter, gloss...the list goes on and on. I never see a piece of paper I don't like or at least that I think I can't use for something. And this is going to sound weird, but I LOVE THE SMELL OF PAPER!!! When Graphic 45 comes through the shop door, I can't wait to open the box to take a big whif! Am I the only one who does that?? Be honest! 

Ok we want to hear your thoughts, so leave us some comments below please.  


G45 and the lovely KC Silver Bells

Here is a video of the beautiful new collections from G45 and the lovely KC silver bells collection. These are beautiful!!
