Hello everyone!  I hope all my blog readers had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed time with family and close friends.  Did you get any craft-related goodies from Santa?  I received two cartidges from my Cricut Expression machine: Straight from the Nest and “Just Because” Cards – and check out the price right now – $26.45!! I was so excited to have another card-making cartridge that I made a how-to video showing exactly how to make cards with the Cricut.  I very rarely make a card completely with my Cricut because I like the freedom of designing a card with just one or a few Cricut cut-outs, but I like the way this card turned out.  Those Cricut cartridge designers really knew what they were doing when they came up with all of those adorable cards!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
