"How Do You Get Your Roses to Look Like That?"

The other day I met a very Lovely lady and had the pleasure of chatting with Carol for a while and she was telling me about how she likes to do "Quilling"? I've never heard of it before but once I did a quick search on my iphone and googled it I realized that I had seen quilling projects before but never knew the term for it? So after spending several hours visiting with her I decided to stop by the local craft store to pick me up one of the quilling tools.
~ And this is what I use to make my roses come out looking so nice. Be sure to get the one WITH the slit and not the one with the tapered tip which is basically like my paper piercer. I don't need another one of those! ~ LOL

Have FUN and Enjoy making your pretty Roses!

Tricia's Paper Roses've asked for it so now you got it! I just uploaded my 1st tutorial video on YouTube! Before you view it please keep this in mind:
1- The video was filmed late last night
2- It was recorded via my iphone so it is a bit shaky
3- The actual screen size view is quite narrow
4- It is NOT fancy at all
5- This is my first attempt so please be nice with the comments {wink wink}
6- Okay now I'm just stalling trying to prevent you from viewing it...

So Berry Sweet

Today I made this adorable goody bag using the Art Philosophy Cartridge. ~ It's so scrumptious you could eat it!

Starting on January 1st I will be kicking off the new year with a bang by continuing my "Project-A-Day for 30 Days" using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge! This time however, it will be 31 days instead! Do you think I have enough in me to complete 31 days straight of project after project and will I be able to create that much projects with the Art Philosophy Cart?
Only time will tell... be continued ~

Please visit me over on my Facebook page to see all my "Project-A-Day for 30 Days" creations that I did all throughout the month of November.!/pages/The-Queen-of-Hearts-from-Close-To-My-Heart/294319380595199

All This Needs is a Little Bit of -TLC-

Greetings everyone! I would like to apologize for being absent from my blogging upkeep! I don't know if all of you have heard that I started up a group page on FaceBook that is dedicated to all things Cricut. The name of the group is called, "Made This With My Cricut"! FUN huh? So I've been really busy trying to get that site running smoothly and ironing out some of the kinks. I've had no time to post anything new lately and haven't used my dear old' Cricky Machine in a while! But hopefully sometime this week I will be back on track!? I have a couple fun projects that I'm excited about making and sharing with all of you. I am also looking into possibly making tutorial videos that so many of you have asked for. Please bare with me as I get ready to launch this whole new side of blogging for me!

In the meantime you can always visit with me on my personal FaceBook page!/pages/The-Queen-of-Hearts-from-Close-To-My-Heart/294319380595199

Or find me floating around on my group page ~!/groups/229165783818687/

Thank-you for stopping by & please come back for a visit real soon! Also if you wouldn't mind leaving me a comment after this post just to let me know you were here! I'd greatly appreciate it! - Smootchies!
