My Tombstone project

Now for one of my newest project. I this idea was inspired by watching PaperPhenomenon U Stream shows. Mine is larger than Kathy's but I just adjusted things to make it fit my use. Kathy does amazing things and I wanted to do this to put my halloween shapes albums in. I have one for each grandchild so I needed someplace to put them. This will also be a great Halloween decoration.
I used Haunted Estate paper pack by Recollections and the Martha Stewart border punch Iron Fence. All the other decorations were purchased from Michaels, Hobby Lobby or the Dollar Tree. It is missing a frog because I don't have a Halloween frog the appropriate size. So I will be adding a frog when I find one that works.

Kits will include pre-cut chipboard pages, pre-cut patterned paper pages, pre-assembled shapes, 6 -6"X12" matching papers for mats, tags, and pockets, full assembly instructions, a hole guide (for punching wholes if you do not have a binding machine), your choice of binding wires (gold or silver O-wires or silver rings) I used gold O-wires.

If you are interested in a Design Studio cut file I am offering them for $10, email me with Nativity cut file in the subject line and I will let you know how to pay. Once I recieve payment I will email you the cut file.
Disclosure: This is my design and you are not allowed to submit this as your project or design to any publication or contest. Cut files are not to be redesigned, resold, or claimed as your own. You may NOT sell projects made from this file. This is meant to be for personal use ONLY.
I need to put a time limit on the purchase of this kit to insure I can get the paper and get them cut & sent before Christmas. Please email me with your order for kits by December 1, 2012. Cut files can be purchased any time.

I am creating a new shapes album. This one is a Nativity Christmas album. I will be using the "A Quilted Christmas" cartridge. And as long as the images cut alright I will be using the fancy pieces.
I plan to have a sample up on the blog by the end of the week. A limited number of Pre-cut kits with assembly instructions will be available for $20 plus actual shipping or free local delivery. Check back friday to see the assembled album. I will have to limit the amount of albums I can offer and I will also have to limit the ordering time to allow me time to order the paper and get the kits cut.
If anyone is interested I could also offer the Design Studio cut file for $10.
Please leave comments here.

I think I have found a place I could do classes again. I was wondering if there is any interest. If you are interested in taking one of my classes please post what type of class you are interested in. Feel free to be specific. This is just an information gathering post. If I get enough interest I will work on a class item and post it. Then people will have a chance to sign up. I will leave this open for a few weeks to give people time to post.
Thank you for reading my blog.

Design Studio manual

Great news for anyone who's fed-up and tired with wasting their scrapbooking time trying to understand how the Cricut Design Studio Software works!

Now you can save yourself hours of frustration, save the money wasted on trial cuts and start making stunning cricut designs that will be the talk of today... the inspiration of tomorrow!

Here is a link to a book called  Taming The Green Bug!

I have not purchased this book myself, because I know how to use Design Studio. I found this on someone elses blog and thought some of you might be interested. When I was teaching classes many of you thought I should teach a DS class.  I tried but I don't feel that class was very successful. So maybe this will help those of you that want to learn DS.
