YES! You are the right page! I just have a new name! :) After realizing that I do more than just scrapbooking, I've decided to change the name and will be changing the look.. I'd do a whole new blog but I'd hate to have to start all over.
Here you will find scrapbooking ideas. There's a ton of older posts that used the Cricut, but lately I haven't been using it much and well, my sewing machine is gaining more miles by the day.

Files are currently not available due to file hosting fees, please send an email to amkscrap @ gmail.com (no spaces) if you would like to request a file and I'll see if I still have it on hand.

Another Generous Gift!

There was another generous gift this morning, and I am proud to say that cut files are covered for the next SIX MONTHS!

Thank you so much to the Generous donors - you both are greatly appreciated!!

On a more personal note - I'm taking it one day at a time. I will be looking at apartments this week, as I stoped by a rental office yesterday to see what was available, and there are 2 that will be ready next week. I may bump up my move from August 22ndish to the weekend of the 11th, depending on how things go, and if my parents can up down that weekend. My most wonderful baby brother (OK, he's 22) has offered to send me the money for deposit and first months rent, so this can all be possible.

I am going through things right now, trying to see what I really don't need and what I can sell to get a few things - I don't have a bed (gonna buy an air mattress at work to start out with) and the only "real" furniture I own is the pieces in my craft room. So, Desk, 3 big cabinets (full of scrap stuff) a 5 shelf bookcase, and my curio cabinets that hold my snow globes. I guess I'll be checking out Craig's list for a kitchen table and chairs (anyone have any expierence with this?) and my parents are gonna bring down a TV. It's hard to believe how much stuff I don't have, but I have never lived alone, and well, I think that this is something that I need to do, and well, things WILL get better.

Thank you to all those that are saying prayers - I believe that this will make me stronge enough to do this - I have a plan, and just need all the mental support that I can to continue to go through with it all!

Cut Files - Will stay!

Thanks to a generous gift, the cut files will be available for another 3 months! And by then I should be 'back on my feet' and have more cut files available.

I don't think I can thank her enough for what she has done - I greatly appreciate it, and it means so much to me.

Thank you once again!

4 More Days..

Is how much longer the cut files will be available.

I have been going through a tough time in well, since I can remember, and in a nutshell, me and my boyfriend are splitting up, which means that I am moving out.

I will keep the blog up, and hope to be able to come back to it, however, right now the funds just aren't there to keep the cut files the way that they are. I have spent over $120 on the file space, and $20 of that was donations from others. Right now I need to save any and every penny that I have for a deposit and first's month rent on an apartment. Maybe someday I will switch to a different provider for the files, however I just don't have it in me right now.

With the cut files download provider not being renewed, please keep in mind that this will affect not just my blog, but a few others too. And to those blog owners - I am really sorry that I can no longer provide this, and that if you want to go a different route that it's more work for you to switch all your links. It has been fun for the last 18 months, but I think that it's time to end, for now.

Thank you to all my followers, for you are the reason that I kept going :)

Explaination of the posts yesterday!!

I was in such a hurry last night, and I am finally logging on for the day.

The images below are previews of the carts that will be released at CHA in less than 2 weeks!

2 of these carts... will be EXCLUSIVE to the GYPSY.

That's right folks.. 2 of the WONDERFUL carts below, well, you'll have to buy a GYPSY to own it! (Well, that's the rumor anyways.. see http://just-a-scrappin.blogspot.com/ for more details!)

But.. Just wanted to clarify that I did not create these images in DS - I did screenshots of them of what they will contain. If you update DS, you will see the new carts. These are not images to download - you will need the carts to cut them, and well, the carts are not out yet.

Sorry for any confusion this has caused!!

Sink and Garbage Disposal

There was a request on the cricut board for a Sink and Garbage disposal, so I thought that I would share it will everyone!
Sink and disposal.. made to fit on a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card front
This needs to be layered "just" right.

There are 3 mats

Mat 1 has components for Dishwasher and sink with pipes
Mat 2 has the card base, Cabinet outline and countertop
Mat 3 has the disposal and faucet

Cut the card base, Cabinet outline and countertop - each in a different color
I would cut the sink and pipes in either White or Silver, and dishwasher in your preference. (I like black base with silver on top.. or silver base with black on top)
when layering.. have the cabinet base on the bottom. Then put the sink and pipes - this goes just a little over the cabinet base, as then the countertop goes on top, with some of the sink showing on the top.
I would mount the faucet behind the sink, as the base part of the faucet is 'bigger' than normal to do this.

Would love to see the finished product!!!
