Hi everyone!

I'm currently at the Close To My Heart Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah... wahoo!!! I'm so in aww of all the amazing new products. I can't wait to update you all on all the new releases. If you follow me on Instagram @MandyLeahy, you may have already seen them. One of the big announcements that I'm super duper excited about is the NEW Cricut Cartridges. Yes, that is plural. There are TWO new Cricut Cartridges available. Ahhhhhh! Yay! I've already been receiving some messages from my awesome customers wanting to know if they can pre-order this. You all know the drill from years ago when I would offer that as an option. Sooooo... lets do it again!!!!

Beginning August 1st, you can order the NEW Close To My Heart You Are Here Cricut Collection and the Close To My Heart Hello USA Digital Cartridge on my CTMH website. However, for those of you who are interested in pre-ordering either one or both of these cartridges, then I have an AWESOME offer for ya between now and July 31st. Everyone who pre-orders this will receive the BRAND NEW CTMH Annual Inspirations Idea Book, plus FREE SHIPPING!!! Woot woot!!! Just like with our other Close To My Heart Cricut Collections, the You Are Here Cartridge has 700 images! Whether you're taking a road trip, camping, having a fun staycation, wine tasting or even traveling abroad... this You Are Here Collection will feature loads of images to help you document the memories. It has images that will even work for family reunions and spa retreats to holiday trips and other outdoor adventures. You'll absolutely love all the shapes, phrases, titles and the super cute font. This collection includes the You Are Here Cartridge, 3 My Acrylix Clear Stamp Sets and a pack of the Enchantment cardstock combo pack. The Collection cost for You Are Here is $99 if you'd like the physical cartridge or $79 if you'd like the digital cartridge.

We also have a new DIGITAL Cricut Cartridge called Hello USA. So if you have a Cricut Explore, Cricut Explore Air or a Cricut Explore Air 2 then this one works for you. It includes 60 layered images from state shapes, overlays and even the names of all 50 states, plus the local flowers, state icon and slogans. There is an additional 10 images about the United States, the different regions and American Flag. I have no doubt this one is going to pair up really nicely with the You Are Here Cartridge too. The cost of this Hello US Digital Cartridge is $49.95.

If you'd like to place a PRE-ORDER, you can make your selection from the following options using the drop down menu below. Keep in mind there are two cricut cartridges available and the You Are Here Collection comes in both a digital and a physical cartridge. While the Hello USA is only available in the Digital option. You'll be able to pick 1 or both and have the option to add on this super cute School Year Stamp Set which is the August Stamp of the Month. It is so cute! It's only $5 if you'd like to add that.

Damask Divas Team Blog Hop Featuring Hello Lovely

Category: My Crafty Projects  |  Permalink

Published: Tuesday, January 31, 2017

I was a busy bee crafting away this weekend. I've been having so much fun making things for my planner. I decided for this months Blog Hop with my Damask Divas Team featuring Hello Lovely, that I'd make some more goodies using this adorable Hello Lovely paper pack.

I ended up making A5 sized dividers, matching clips, a charm using our Base & Bling Jewelry and some page markers. Then I grabbed the Hello Lovely Scrapbooking Stamp Set and random stamped the top section of the Inkwell Press Planner Pages. I'm so obsessed with this weeks setup in my planner and how it's all so Hello Lovely. ;) For the stamping I used the Plan On It Stamp Set.... I love it!!! What do you think?


To make the dividers I used Cricut Design Space. It was super easy to make. I just used a square and unlocked it to make it a rectangle shape in the dimensions of my planner and then searched images for "bracket" and located one that was with Cricut Access. I divided the length of the dividers by how many tabs I wanted which was 5 and then copied and pasted 5 of them in the size needed. I also copied and pasted 5 of the rectangles and then 1 by 1 I welded the bracket with a rectangle. It's really easy but if this is going way over your head and you would like the link to the ones I created, well... you're in luck. :) I'm happy to share. Here you go: LINK TO MY CRICUT DESIGN SPACE DIVIDERS. If you pay for Cricut Access, the bracket will not cost you anything. If you don't have a subscription it will probably ask you to pay 99 cents for the use of the bracket.

The laminator I use is the Scotch Thermal Laminator. I've been really happy with it. It's heats up quickly and easy to run my projects through. I used our Liquid Glass adhesive to attach the laminated pieces (which were from the Hello Lovely Complements) and then just attached them to paper clips. I love having the pieces stick up the top of my planner.

For the planner charm I used the Base & Bling Rectangle Pendant, the bow, the rhinestone and the glass cover. I cut a piece of the Hello Lovely paper to fit inside it. You can check out the Base & Bling items, HERE.

Valentines Tree

Category: My Crafty Projects  |  Permalink

Published: Wednesday, January 4, 2017

I've always wanted a Valentine's tree but have never got around to doing one.... but NOW I have one. Yay, I'm so excited and wanted to share...

The idea popped up again after the kids and I had taken all the Christmas décor down and put it away but were waiting on my hubby to put up the tree. After it sat a couple days with the lights still on, I mentioned how pretty it still looked and I was sad to take it down. Then I said to my husband, "would you care if I did a Valentine's Day themed tree?". Of course this prompted the kids to chant "VALENTINES TREE, VALENTINES TREE". And well the hubby can't say no to that. haha! So here it is, my Valentine's Day tree. I went to several stores trying to find Christmas stuff on clearance but most were cleared out already (Jan 3rd). I called around and Kmart still had a small selection so I went and bought all the pink and red things I could find that would work. Then ventured to Hobby Lobby to buy up a bunch of Valentine's items that could work on the tree. Surprisingly they had Valentine's ornaments and garland. I ended up adding to the tree after taking this picture. I felt there were a few bare spots so I went back to Hobby Lobby and bought another pack of heart ornaments and a bouquet of pink fake roses. I cut them all apart and placed them in the bare areas... just haven't gotten around to taking more pics. :)

Now the kids and I are making a list of all the holidays we can decorate for. I have a feeling some will be challenging to find ornaments and things for certain themes but challenge accepted. I'll gladly craft some up. :) It's going to be a fun year of decorating with our tree.

CTMH Sugar Rush Blog Hop

Category: My Crafty Projects  |  Permalink

Published: Sunday, January 1, 2017

Happy New Year!

Guess what time it is? It's blog hop time! A few of my Damask Divas (team) and I wanted to show off the awesome new paper pack called Sugar Rush! It's so cute. I hope you'll get some inspiration by checking out what we've done with the paper.

I have been planner happy lately and usually make stickers but I decided to try something different and use the Sugar Rush paper and coordinating Sugar Rush Complements.

I had fun cutting the strips and making it work for my new planner inserts. My favorite was of course adding on all those cute Sugar Rush Complements (stickers). Pretty cute, huh? This paper is just adorable. Who doesn't love donuts, popsicles and these awesome colors?

Next up on the hop list is Jennifer ---> CLICK HERE.... Have fun HOPPING!

Nerve Renew If you are suffering from chronic back pain, eliminate caffeinated beverages from your life. While it may surprise you, caffeine is documented in causing spasms and inflaming injured muscles. To help ease your back pain, consume less tea, coffee and soda pop.
