CM Cricut Expressions2 almost gone!

Apparently CM is very close to depleting their supply of exclusive Cricut Expression 2s...they've pulled them from the websites and only have a few available for CM Consultants to order this weekend. CM does not have plans on offering these again. If you want one of these let me know ASAP!

Dear Santa Simply Said Book

Available Nov. 1st on my CM website

Make it simple. Make it matter. A Simply Said Book is a fantastically quick way to share your hopes, sentiments and memories with someone you love. CM gives you the format to fill in the blanks with your photos and feelings to create a unique tribute. Its love and honor in under an hour.  Each book even comes with a sheet of adhesive!  Here are all current Simply Said books on my CM website.  (Check out the Teacher book – what a great gift that will be!!)

This book is so very cute – I am going to give one to each of my boys.  It’ll make a wonderful keepsake! 

One of my friends suggested using this as a class project – contact me if you’d like to order multiple copies of this – I’d love to offer a discount to help you out!

15 off

Here’s a picture of each page:

Some (very) quick pages made with the new CM ‘Tis the Season Cricut cartridge, Holidazzle & Noel products

Good news & bad news – First the good news – I did get a chance to play with the new ‘Tis the Season CM Cricut cartridge at our fun filled weekend retreat!  Bad news – I only got 10 cuts done!  20 cuts, really – but only 10 different ones.  10 were for another CMC that will be making me some cuts from the Best of Times Sampler cartridge that comes with the CM exclusive Expressions 2 – because I haven’t caved yet and bought it!  The weekend was filled with lots of fun, wedding crashers, helping out sommeliers in training (otherwise they’d just have to pour out that champagne!) and so many laughs my stomach hurt for a few days after – but not many Cricut cuts Smile

Here are a few pages I assembled (very quickly!!) to give you an idea of how nice the ‘Tis the Season cuts coordinate with the Noel & Holidazzle items.   These will all be available on my CM website Nov. 1st!!  

I hope you can see the nice foil accents on this paper from the Holidazzle Paper and photo mat pack.  The present is cut with ‘Tis the Season cartridge using cranberry cardstock and a Holidazzle photo mat.  “Merry Moments” is from the Countdown to Christmas Display Accents kit (more about this at the bottom of this post.)

Paper & mats from the Holidazzle pack.  Snowman cut from new white shimmer, cranberry, carrot & deep blue cardstock using the ‘Tis the Season cartridge.

Each sheet of paper in the Noel and Holidazzle pack is double sided.  One side has foil accents, the other doesn’t.

No Cricut cuts on either of the 2 pages above – just a really cute background papers to start with and I added 2 photo mats (all in the Holidazzle paper & photo mat pack) and diecuts from the Countdown to Christmas Display Accent Kit.

Background paper and photo mats from the Noel paper & photo mat pack.  “Sleigh Ride” (one of 2 fonts on the cartridge) and mitten cut with ‘Tis the Season CM Cricut cartridge.

It’s hard to see how beautiful this paper is – white snowflakes in the background, gold foil accents on the ornament.  Beautiful!  From the Noel paper & photo mat pack.

Background paper from the Noel paper & photo mat pack.  “Jingle Bells” cut with ‘Tis the Season CM Cricut cartridge.

Here are some close ups of the cuts:

Here is a couple of pictures from the Countdown to Christmas Everyday Display Kit – it’s adorable!! (You can learn more about Everyday Displays & current kits here on my CM website.)

I love these types of countdowns – no candy or treats, just a good old fashioned countdown!

Close up of one of the “doors” opened.  Love the glittery accents!!

this is one piece – the photo mats even have adhesive on them!

Sheet of diecut accents to add to your Everyday Display or use on your pages!  I think this kit would make a great gift!  Even nicer if you give it along with one of our Everyday Displays!  I’ve heard of people giving them to co-workers, (to hang in their cubicles) college students and lots of other people.
