My Crafty Channel

I want to introduce a new website called My Crafty Channel. This is something new and I am very excited about it. Here is some info from My Crafty Channel:

What is My Craft Channel?

It is the first of its kind online craft TV network that features over 20 top craft celebrities from across the country.  It brings the blogger, crafter, and scrapbook community together in one place to provide inspiration through broadcast quality shows in various categories from sewing, scrapbooking, DIY projects, mixed media, stamping, digital hybrid crafts, photography, party planning, product reviews and more!

Mission Statement:

To create a massive network of talented women who already have a large individual following.  By joining together we can create a large vehicle that gives us a voice and a platform to share our message to a larger mainstream audience. By working together  with manufacturers and retailers in the craft sector, our goal is to complete the circle by providing inspiration to the end user through broadcast quality shows.

When and Where?

This Fall we will launch our new website where you can come and view new broadcast quality shows every week. As long as you have an internet connection you can tune into these amazing hosts and be INSPIRED!!

Blog Candy Winner(s)?

Thanks to all who commented on last weekends posts about the new Cricut cartridges that were released in June. I have my favorites, too. I absolutely have to have Sophisticated! Teresa Collins has wonderful designs and this cartridge is no exception! plus, the cartridge box matches the colors in my scrap room! what? this is not a reasonable excuse to buy a cart? Traveler is another cart that I need. I still have so many photos to scrap of vacations and even when I was a Flight Attendant. Although I have Pack Your Bags, there are images on Traveler that I like more. Now to the winner of the Blog Candy! (Sorry for being late with this post Embarrassed smile)


In one of her comments, Carrie said, “I agree with you, thank goodness that is all for this month!! I NEED Flower Shoppe!! But I am still not caught up from a couple of months ago! I wish PC would give us a 2 or 3 month vacation and let us get caught up!!”

Carrie, now that you mentioned it, I am thinking that I need Flower Shoppe also! I’m in a “flower phase” right now and most projects have some kind of flower on it.

But wait! I’m feeling so good about blogging again, that I picked a ‘runner up’ for some Blog Candy!


In one of her comments, Kim said, “Provo Craft did an amazing job keeping us all buying! I love the Traveler from Creative Memories! Living in Florida this would be the perfect cartridge:)”

Kim, I cannot wait to get mine! (Yep, it’s already been ordered!) I hope it gets here soon!

Carrie and Kim, please email me your addresses so I can get your Blog Candy sent to you. Thanks girls for commenting and following. It makes me feel like I’m blogging for a reason, that someone is out there reading and enjoying this!

Until next time, Happy Crafting,


Look What I Found at Hobby Lobby!

This may not be news to everyone but it was to me! As I was teaching a Cricut class at Hobby Lobby a while back, I told the class about embellishing their Cricut cuts with different items – embossing with the Cuttlebug, inking, pen work, popping up with pop dots, etc. I was getting ready to tell them about spray inks when I remembered that Hobby Lobby didn’t carry Glimmer Mists so I used Sheer Shimmer Spritz made by Tsukineko. Don’t get me wrong, I love these mists, especially the Shimmer and Frost, but they only come a a very limited selection of colors. So after the class, I HAD to go see what Hobby Lobby had on sale! At that time, they had all scrapbook papers and paper pads 50% off! So a pad of Core’dinations Nostalgia cardstock just jumped into my arms! But a few rows over my friend Pam who works in the scrapbooking department showed me what they just got in – GLIMMER MIST!!!

Yes! The same ones made by Tattered Angels! They came in 1oz bottles in a package with 4 bottles each.

The first package, below, is called Sundance and it contains Peach Delight, Lemon Zest, Apple Red, and Silver Sugar.

Glimmer Mist 2

The second package has Heidi Swapp’s  name on it and contains the colors Electric Blue, Black Magic, Viva Pink, and Iridescent Gold.

Glimmer Mist 1

They retail for 14.95. So since the pack of cardstock was 29.99 and I was going to spend the same amount on that (remember, the cardstock was 50 off!) I put the cardstock back and got the Sundance Glimmer Mists! - yea, I know I coulda waited for the 40% coupon, but like I said, I was going to spend the same amount of money anyways, so there! - I am going back to get the Heidi Swapp mists this week - yea, with a coupon this time! - because I really want to try the Black Magic and Viva Pink mists!

I {HEART} Hobby Lobby. They seem to really try to keep up with the new scrapbooking items. just so I can add to my collection!

Oh, and by the way, when I got home, guess what I already had in my cardstock stash, still unused? Right, the same pack of Core’dinations Nostalgia! So I made a very good choice!

Until next time, Happy Crafting,
