Happy Holidays and a Very Merry Christmas to all of my scrappy friends! Don't you just love this time of year? I hope you're all able to take some time out from the busyness of it all to really just stop and ENJOY the season, and to appreciate what it is that makes it so special. For me, that means my faith in God and my wonderful family and friends. And the hot cocoa, warm jammies, the cozy fireplace and Christmas lights don't hurt either!

Alrighty, here's a couple of brand spankin' new kits just perfect for this magical season. See below for details. To order, just email me at and include your state or zip code, and preferred payment method (PayPal or check).

This wintery whimsical "Snow Much Fun" kit was designed by Bling Queen Wendy Lawrence. And btw, she's a Guest Designer today (Saturday) for Everyday Cricut, so be sure to check it out! This bright and playful layout is perfect for any of your winter pictures. It's so cute, you might have to plan a snow trip just to take pictures for it! Included in this kit, you'll receive all of the patterned papers, cardstock, and ribbon that you need to make the layout. You'll also get detailed, yet easy to follow directions with a Cricut Cut Chart that shows you line by line exactly what you need to cut on your Cricut. There's also well-organized written instructions and plenty of color photographs to help you out.

To complete this project as shown, you'll need the following supplies: Cricut Expression and mat, Winter Frolic cart, Accent Essentials cart (or any cart with snowflakes), brown chalk ink, 3D pop dots, white gel pen, Diamond Stickles, plus basic tools and adhesive.

This complete kit is $25, or you can order just the directions for $10. Shipping is available, and is $5 in California or ranges from $6-$9 in the rest of the US depending on location. I'm happy to combine shipping, and you'll never pay more than $10 for shipping, even if ordering multiple kits. There are several other kits currently in stock - just see the slide show and list at the top of the blog. These new kits will be available for local pick-up on December 12th, and will ship out December 13th.

Below is the new "Happy Christmas" kit, which was designed by Nana Susan Rees. Believe me, this rich Victorian look is her specialty! There are so many details here, including textured velvet ribbon, Cuttlebug embossing, red rhinestones and gold ink accents. It's perfect for those Christmas morning pictures, or any Christmas family gathering.

Included with this kit, you'll receive all of the beautiful patterned papers and solid cardstock, plus the stunning ribbons, button and red rhinestones. You'll also get the full directions with Cricut Cut Chart, written instructions and color photos.

To complete this project as shown, you'll need the following supplies: Cricut Expression and mat, Christmas/Noel solutions cartridge, Cuttlebug with various embossing folders of your choice (optional), brown chalk ink, tan chalk ink, white chalk ink, 3D pop dots, glue dots, white gel pen, gold gel pen, brown fine-tipped marker, Diamond Stickles, plus basic tools and adhesive.

As with the "Snow Much Fun" kit, this "Happy Christmas" kit is $25 for the complete kit or $10 for the directions. The kit is available December 12th, and will ship on December 13th. If you previously ordered the "I Believe" kit or the "Live Simply" kit, these will all be ready at the same time, so it's easy to combine shipping and save some money.

To order either of these new kits, just email me at Be sure to include your state or zip code so I can calculate postage. Also let me know if you prefer that I send you a PayPal invoice, or if you'd rather mail a check.

Btw, just a little note about the future of this blog, classes, etc. My design team and I are planning on ramping up the blog very soon with more consistent posts. We'll show new projects, new tools and techniques, a video here and there and even regular give aways. So stay tuned for more info. Plus for you locals, we are planning on starting up classes again in February when we return from CHA. There's even talk of more consistent crop nights and retreats. It should be a fun and busy year!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, and I wish you a warm and magical Christmas!
