Cute Goody Bag Gift Ideas

Hello again!  It's been a little busy lately with shows and crops, as well as busy at my other jobs, so I haven't been on to update.  Thought I would take a minute today and add on a photo of a cute little Goody Bag I have been making using the Close to my Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  For $99.00 you get the cartridge, 3 adorable D size stamps, and 3 sheets of dimensional elements that all coordinate together!  This is a great deal since some people have been going on to E-bay and spending over $100.00 just to get the cartridge alone!!  All you have to do is order through Close to my Heart and you get the whole package deal for only $99.00 plus tax and shipping/handling.  Plus you get the stamp of the month for only $5.00! What a deal!  Contact me at thecountrycropper@gmail.com for more information!!  Anyway, here is a picture of one of the goody bags and I will post some other pictures later.

October's "Boo" card


                   If you would like complete instructions on how to make this card, email me at thecountrycropper@gmail.com.  All papers were cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, scalloped punch and round punch, all from Close to my Heart.

October 8th Make and Take

Donna and Connie were working hard on finishing their "Boo" Halloween card.  Here they are sponging the edges of the inside paper to make it look a little spookier!

12 hour crop at Connie's!

I traveled to Connie's today and enjoyed a 12 hour crop with friends and family.  Well, they enjoyed the crop, I enjoyed teaching new techniques, demonstrating how to use the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge from Close to my Heart, and explaining when and how to use several of the tools and supplies shown in the Autumn/Winter Idea book.  We made a very cute "Boo" Halloween card, which I will post a picture of later today.  There was a lot of great artwork today!  There will not be a crop in November, but we will plan on resuming again in December, weather permitting!
If you do not have a new Autumn/Winter Idea book, you can check it out on-line at www.lauriesmith.myctmh.com.  The October Stamp of the Month is cute, cute, cute!  Don't miss out on getting this one!  You only have until October 31 to order, so don't wait too long!

Opening Day

Today is opening day of my new blog.  I have spent several days trying to figure out how to add gadgets and blog badges on here and today my son came home and had it all done in just seconds!  I have a lot to learn on here so be patient and keep checking back to see how it is progressing!
