Cricut Craft Room Video

Someone had posted in the cricutcutter yahoo group I am a member of and was having trouble figuring out exactly how to layer a bee image from the Best Images of 2006 cartridge. I decided after a bunch of us in the group explained how to do it on the cricut itself that I'd do a little CCR video showing the benefit of using it instead. I

Although this video shows her bee cut it shows some basics for CCR and how to use the layers, hidden contour and cut what YOU want! :)

The file I made if you want it is here http://www.4shared.com/file/eTnH9ccF/bee_-_Best_of_2006.html
I think I have a password set just to protect my files. I simply ask whenever you download files from my site that you you then for PERSONAL USE ONLY and that if someone else asks for the file that you send them to me to get it. The password is iagreetotou

Hope you enjoy the video and find it helpful.

New CTMH promotions and news!!

Happy New Year everyone!

I'm still busy trying to clean up and re-organize from a very busy Christmas and prepare for my sons 3rd birthday later this week plus a full day cricut class I'll be doing in Truro January 14 so please excuse my absence. :)

I didn't want my absence to cause you to miss out on any of the great deals though so....

Check out the while supplies last section of the store great stuff at LOW prices.

Remember that as of yesterday morning our prices now match the US pricing which may not seem like much but a dollar here and there makes a BIG difference by the time you add tax and shipping (for example the cricut cartridge used to be $109.95 and is now $99.00 which means after tax and shipping here in NS that it's now $126 instead of $139 that's an extra stamp set at full price or a few ink pads or some liquid glass and a Starbucks latte). :)

Next up are the new Stamp Of The Month which is also cheaper now because of the US pricing now so instead of $5.50 with a qualifying order of $55 it's now $5 with order of $50!! Yay!!!

There is also A campaign on for a product that will be released with the NEW spring/summer idea book which you can order from as if February 1. The product is a set of 9 cubes (or blocks) in a tray with a huge stamp set!! Think photo puzzles for your coffee table (or kids) GREAT homemade gift! You can take it out of the tray and make the blocks spell words decorated up for your shelf/mantle etc.... These products are available for $15 with any $25 purchase! This is an awesome savings of over $40. The fine print: *Offer valid December 19, 2011–January 31, 2012. While supplies last. Tax and shipping/handling apply. Only items available in the Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book count toward your qualifying purchase total.

If you use or were looking to use Studio J for your digital or hybrid scrapbooking there is also a promotion January is free layout month for Studio J® members! For every 9 custom-printed Studio J layouts you buy, you’ll receive the 10th layout free. To receive the discount, just add 10 or more layouts to your cart. You’ll see a discount reflected in your order total. And you can totally take advantage of this promotion by ordering in multiples of 10. Buy 9, get 1 free. Buy 18, get 2 free. Buy 27, get 3 free. And so on! If you’re not a member yet, now’s a great time to join!

Also there IS a new idea book coming and with that lots of products are being retired as of February 1 so if you were looking for anything you'll want to get your order in before the new book comes out which you won't want to miss out on as it's awesome!!!
Lots more to coordinate with the Art Philosophy cartridge for those that have it and if not well you can still cut by hand too! ;)
