TT: Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge; Plus Stamp Giveaway & Thank You! 454

Happy Tuesday!

So who has a chocolate hangover from Trick or Treating with kids?!? Lol

We had a GREAT time with Britten, Brian and the girls doing trick or treating yesterday! The kids had a BLAST and all 4 kids combined, we have something like 20+lbs of candy! Insanity!

Anyway, today’s Tuesday tutorial is about some fun things like the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and Mr Cricut Crazy stamps.

I hope you all enjoy!

Today’s Giveaway
Leave a comment on this post to be entered to win a set of Mr Cricut Crazy stamps! Winner selected at random on Thursday! Have fun!!!

One other thing….

I wanted to again say thank you all again for your comments and response to my post the other day! The funny thing about it, I posted to be encouraging to others, to challenge and more…and then situations in my own life arise where I have to take my own advise! I have been having some deeper personal and emotional struggles with things in my life that I choose not to just put here online….but today, I’m going to just ask you all, those who have been so encouraging and supportive to just say a little prayer for us. My life is blessed! But it certainly is NOT perfect!!! I have struggles and trials, just like, well, everyone. I’m working on stepping out of my own comfort zones now…. so I’m just asking those of you who do pray to just think of Sean and I as we move forward in our personal, family and business lives while we still seek to grow.

Reading your comments means the world to us (Sean too!)… Seriously, you all are the best!

    I know what u mean on the candy overload. I will be hiding tons of it tomorrow while the kids are at school. LOL.
    I love that Chinese food take out box. I must buy this cartridge this week! TFS.

  • Christeen Baker

    That is adorable. Thanks for the chance to win. Your video made my day. It is Melbourne Cup day here in Australia and not only did my horses not win but I had to leave the restaurant before my lunch (ordered one and a half hours before) arrived. So your video cheered me up and kept my mind off my grumbling tummy.

  • Kathleen

    Just like the song says, I said a little prayer for you! And thanks for a chance to win Tanner’s stamps. He is a such a creative & funny young man!

  • Dar

    Thank you for sharing the Art Philosophy cartridge and it’s awesome capabilities!!! Can’t wait to get one and try out those flowers!!
    (keep your eyes focused on what is most important in your life, and things will turn out for the best!)

  • Jenscrapstoo

    Love the flowers, pity this cart is not available to us in Australia πŸ™ as I love it!! Thanks for the chance to win such wonderful stamps..Tanner did a great job on those !!

  • BetsyR

    Love this cartridge. Provo Craft and CTMH hit a home run with this cola eration. It is great to have coordinating stamps. Noticed a cute cupcake stamp on Mr Cricut Crazys stamps. Megan, you and your family will be in my prayers.

  • Angela

    Always wishing everyone well and thank you for being so open and sharing. May Jehovah the God of all comfort be there for you. Thanks again for the chance to win something. Have a wonderful day!

  • Karyn

    Thank you for sharing your passion with us. I love your videos and am always inspired to try something different. I absolutely love this cartridge…so many options! Thanks for the opportunity to enter the drawing!

  • Katie

    What a great cartridge and stamp set. Have never heard of the designer before. Thanks for showing us the box and the flowers. Love how you just make do w/whatever you have. Keep up the good work!

    • Debi

      I love those flowers, so cute. I could think of lots of projects using them. I said a prayer for you and your family. I know how fast stress can creep up on you and your family. Hang in there, it will get better. πŸ™‚

  • Eileen

    Megan, I stumbled on your website by accident and am so glad I did.

    I live in Northern Ireland and am very new to Cricut and Scrapbooking. Your tutorials are so helpful and inspiring and I am learning so much from them. Thank you. I enjoyed hearing all about your trip to China. My husband was born there – his parents were missionaries, and we were privileged to visit this year to see the church where his Mum & Dad were married and the place where he was born.
    Keep up the good work.
    God Bless


  • Wendy

    I love the gift box feature on this cartridge and the flowers are beautiful.


    My thoughts are with you during this difficult time. Hope everything gets better soon!


  • Donna Chartrand

    Love your tutorials, enjoy them so much. Wishing you all the best today and always….and keep in mind, this too, shall pass, better days ahead πŸ˜‰

  • darlene

    Love the Art Philosophy cartridge.. I have it and love playing with it and with 700 designs, you can’t go wrong! I have not tried that box yet, so that’s on the agenda for today! Thanks for all you do.. prayers go out to you and your family..
    Thanks for the opportunity to win something.. πŸ˜‰

  • Kathy H

    Love this cartridge too….However I haven’t tried the 3d flowers yet. Now I will have to. Was a little nervous to do it but you have sooo inspired me. Thank you for a great tutorial and the chance to win!!!!!

  • Janice Davis

    So glad you there is something on the Art Philosophy cartridge. I bought this in Sept. at a show and have not had time to even open the box. This gives me a reason to set aside some time this weekend to work with that cartridge.

  • Linda Peterson

    Love the video—now, I know how to make the flowers.
    Prayers for you during some trying times. Lot of blips in the road as we go through life. I have a cousin who has MS, and can only move one hand, but she still gets up each morning, saying: “I wonder what today will bring!” Anytime I get down, I think of her and her optimism. Some days, it is harder than others.
    Your videos bring brightness to my days.
    Thank you.

  • Gail

    I love this Cricut Cartridge from Close to My Heart!! Just a quick note…it’s a lot easier to
    roll the flowers if you have the tool that you use in quilling when rolling the paper strips.
    The tool has a small slit on the top of it. I took a small blade and opened the slit just a little more, this made the paper a little easier to put it. All you have to do then is to roll the sprial flower cut out, slide off the tool and…wahooo…there you have it! Very easy to adjust the tension for the flower as your rolling it. I use a dabb of hot glue to hold my’s just a little quicker to me. If you rolled your flower too tight just let it sit and relax for a while then adhere it to the base with your glue. Hope this helps those of you who might have trouble getting it to roll, sometimes stiff fingers and joints need all the help they can get!

  • Cynthia Jordan Brown

    I love your Tuesday Tutorials…I really look forward to seeing them. This cartridge has moved to the top of my wish list after seeing your project today. May God continue to bless you and your family and guide you to the answers that you seek.

    Cynthia Jordan Brown

  • Rita B.

    Love your projects! No sugar overload here, no little ones and since we live in the country no Trick or Treaters. πŸ™ I miss living in town on Halloween….. Thanks for a chance to win some of Tanners stamps.

  • Sharon

    Stunning box and flowers, Megan. Thks so much for the chance to win Mr Cricut crazy stamps. We don’t get the stamps or the Art Philosophy cartridge here in Cape Town – South Africa, either. Maybe I can buy them online. πŸ™‚

    U rock, Megan. Remember Faith you help through any crisis you & Sean are having. U both do such an AMAZING job. Keep up the EXCELLENT WORK!



  • Parth A. Leach

    You should also show how the Art Philosophy cartridge cuts images that have co-ordinating CTMH stamps images. Be sure to note the “cheat” guidelines on the stamp sheet that tells what size to cut the image on the Cricut for the best stamped result.

  • Margaret S

    This is cool. Had a quiet halloween. We live in the country and no trick or treaters. Of course we buy candy just in case. End up bringing to work today.

  • Qadirah 3 year old grand-daughter and I went out and her mom put up the bucket with the candy.. she found it and man did she go through the chocolate… talk about a mess, LOL.. well.. you get the picture… I loved the video tutorial. thanks so much for the lesson!

  • Amelia Andrade

    Love the little gift box and the 3-D flowers. How cute! The stamp goes perfectly! Thank you sooo very much Mr. Cricut Crazy stamps for the opportunity to win the stamp set! Many blessing and most of all a blanket of peace on you, meagan for whatever journey God is bringing you through. Remember “for HE knows the plans He has for you, plans to prosper… plans for a hope and a future”, ” He gives pwer to the weak and strength to the powerless”, ” Blessed am I when I mourn: for I shall be comforted”, “You shall increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side” Some bible authority for you. God Bless You and your family during this time of trial.

  • JOAN

    What a great video you are a good teacher and I really like how even when things mess up you share not delete because like with the mat … oooh been there done that…..and I love how you chit chat while creating because it’s more like we’re together so Yes I’ll say a little prayer for you and yours and things do get hairy and difficult at times but it’ll make you stronger and our Lord never gives us more than we can handle and right now his light is shining down on you and by spreading his word like you have he is so proud of you and yes I’m tearing up right now and feel so good about what you will be receiving from him….God Bless You and be open to all the great gift he is about to bestow upon you….You have asked for prayers and boy oh boy there is nothing and no one who can mess with this so go about your day and your light my dear will show so brightly that people will be wondering what the heck is going on with you and your smile will tell it all!!!!!

  • Sheila Rogers

    This is the best cartridge yet. It has so many designs, that you don’t have to constantly change cartridges to get another design and I love how they put the sizes on the stamps to use for the chip boards. I love this cartridge

  • Robin

    Megan, I prayed for your family. May you feel God’s comfort and love today. I too am struggling- have been richly blessed! Then when I struggle, I feel guilty! You are so talented and bring a smile to many with your creativity! You are more precious than rubies!!

  • Tanya Thompson

    I just finished putting several of these boxes together! I cut them out of Halloween print paper and made orange roses with tags…I live in the country so we don’t get any trick or treaters so I made these for the families on either side of my property…They are such wonderful neighbors and their boxes were stuffed full of yummy chocolates and Halloween wishes! I absolutely love your videos…keep the faith!
    Tanya T

  • Joan

    Great gift box and flowers…..your video makes it look so easy….I’ve shied away from these types of things even tho I have the cartridges…but….now…I’m ready to take these things on……I know I already left a comment but this one just sticks to your video projects… and what a neat young man Tanner is… this day and age where young people aren’t motivated just kind of like lumps…it’s refreshing to see someone so young doing something with their God given talent. It’s really special that he is involved in a give away….so thanks again for your great tutorial videos…..and have an extremely blest day and keep up with all your awesome plans and those who don’t get it……so be it……your husband is so supportive and this is a wonderful thing…..that’s the problem today with everyone ….. to many are just existing in homes together not loving and being together so keep your lights shining guys your kids are so lucky to have such awesome examples of parents like you…..integrity….fortitude and love……and the Lord’s light shines thru you!!!!

  • Jackie Lumber

    Here I am trying to tidy my craft room(such a mess) saw your mail and I just had to watch. What a great cartridge it is a must have but over here I havent heard of it, Guess I will have to save for a trip to your country and buy some cartridges and the funb stamps to. Cant make it till next year at least so hope to have them in the UK soon. Thanks for a chance to win the great stamp set.


  • Ann Diehl

    I, too, know about struggles in life – I’m right there with you. And your trip to China looked wonderful. We visited Beijing a year ago and loved it there. The people were very warm, friendly & welcoming. And to see the Great Wall & the Forbidden City was a dream come true.

    I’m a new follower, but thank you for all your wonderful ideas & for being a caring & sharing person.

  • Lisa

    Thank you for this awesome tutorial! I am new to owning a Cricut and can use any help availabe. I own the Create but am saving up for the Expression. I also want to say that you and Sean will be in my daily prayers. I agree about puting some things out here on the web. We all have times in our lives that are more difficut than others and need the prayers of our friends. Sending love and angels your way. Thanks again for all your hard work and teaching us new techniques.


  • Michelle

    Loved the box AND the cartridge. Great video! May God wrap his loving arms around you and Sean and give you whatever it is you need to get through your challenge. Know you are loved.

  • Viki

    I love love love this cartridge! I have not stopped using my Cricut machine since getting this cartridge – thanks so much for the tutorial and the giveaway! I made a wreath with all the flowers you can check it out here like I said, I love this cartridge!

    On a personal note Megan you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am struggling myself with so many different issues but mostly just balancing life, work, my husbands job (he is a youth pastor), my kids, etc. When I’m praying for strength and wisdom for me know I’m praying it for you too πŸ™‚ “Yes the LORD longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!” Praise His NAME!!

  • Lois Hanson

    I love all your ideas, I wish I could come up with designs as you do. You are so inspiring at what you do. Thanks for all the help.

  • Kay Bechtol

    I really want this cartridge…maybe Christmas… We all need prayers, thanks for asking. Wait upon the Lord and He will guide you and give you peace.

  • Thelma

    The Art Philosophy is on my list of cartridges I would like to buy. There are so many things you can do with it. Thanks for the tutorial. May God be with you and guide you.

  • GIGIGI30

    Can I say sugar sick here? We got tons and tons of candies which I’ll be donating to my credit union food bank. Anyway, thanks for the tutorial. I learn more by watching than reading and your videos help me a lot since I’m newbie at all this….Thanks again and for the great opportunity to win something!!

  • Toni Young

    My son went out trick-or-treating for the first time last night, and boy, did he have a blast. The local bakery even gave out donuts to the kids. It was great. Thank for the chance to win.

  • Milly D

    Just love the box. That cartridge does have awesome stuff on it. it’s on my xmas wishlist. Thanks Mr. Cricut Crazy for donating some stamps for a giveaway. TFS Megan

  • srpelsue

    Fun cartridge and stamp set. We finally have figured out how much candy to have on hand without having huge amounts left over or it could be that we ate so much during the evening that it just appears that we had only a little bit left over. I do have to chuckle when one of the young trick or treaters asked if he could have some more!

  • Judi farrell

    CUTE box! I love how even when you make a mistake (the flower tearing when it was cutting or not folding the box correctly) you keep going with it and fix it. It is SO inspiring to me on two different levels. 1) It’s so comforting to know that even the “pros” make mistakes too and 2) one can fix the mistake and move on and not just give up or throw it away as my perfectionistic personality would tend to do. πŸ˜€
    I have the Art Philosophy cart and it IS my favorite! It has such diversity! Have been using it to make the cutest gift bags with coodinating tags and cards to sell at a craft show for Christmas.
    Thanks for sharing and for just being one of us—lovers of paper crafting. πŸ˜€
    Gob Bless you always. Prayers are coming your way. πŸ˜€

  • Cynthia Guy

    Hey Megan-
    haven’t watched it yet…but I will after Ceili gets on the bus. πŸ™‚ But t’s breakfast time around here. πŸ™‚ Anyways, just read through everything and wanted you to know I think about you, Sean,a nd the kids often….and I hope you are well. My prayers are with you, too. πŸ™‚ I feel overwhelmed for you with the outpouring of love on here from all of the previous comments! I can only imagine what you must be feeling.

  • Lindsey

    I love your box, I’m really into boxes now with birthdays and Christmas coming up, it’s so nice to make the box as it’s the finishing touch, I just love the spiral flower too! Thx for the chance to win the stamps : )

    I also get stuck sometimes on my cricut.The more complicated cuts the more slower speed I put. Awesome video and thanks to you and Tanner for the chance to win.

  • Debbie B

  • Sandy Anderson

    Recently discovered the Close to my Heart Crircut Cart. Love the paring of cricut and stamps.
    Made some great Christmas cards!

  • Rox

    WOW, what a great cartridge. Love it. We are in CT and had to cancel Halloween :(. Alot of people still do not have power because we go a ton of snow Saturday. We lost power at 11pm on Saturday and I just got it back Monday night at 9 pm. And we are one of the first to get it back because we are on the hospital grid. Alot still without power. Couldn’t have kids going out with no lights. So, kids were disappointed. They are talking about having it on Saturday if power is restored. We are sooooo cold and bored because I have no computer either. I did work on alot of my Christmas cards. Starting to warm up now. Please pray for those who still need power. I saw alot of good people offering help to those who were elderly and had kids. We had people from church calling to ask if everyone was ok. Some phones worked, some did not. Alot of trees came down. Wow I am getting too lengthy, LOVE YOUR VIDEOS.

  • Suzanne

    What a wonderful project! You are so talented! I learn so much from watching your videos! Have a wonderful week and thank you for the chance to win!

  • NanetteMT

    What a cute box! I have this cartridge and now you are making me want to get it out and start playing with it some more. Thanks for the chance to win Mr. Cricut stamps.

    I’ll be praying for you and your family and business!

  • Sheri R.

    Darling gift box. Thanks for taking the time to share your exploration of this cute cartridge. Hopefully what you and your family are experiencing will be short-lived. I will keep you in my prayers as so many others are. And, thanks for the opportunity to win such cute stamps!

  • Diane Cooper

    I love watching your videos. I have a lot of cartridges but need help with ideas. I just look at the cartridge and think, what am I supposed to do with that? I also bought your paper layerz paper. I love it. Thanks for all of your help!

  • Brenda Pennington

    Art Philosophy is on my Christmas wish list. Sure hope Santa brings it to me πŸ™‚

    Megan, you and Sean are in my thoughts and prayers as you step out of your comfort zone and into whatever God has planned next for your family.

  • Mattie

    This was such a great demonstration. It gives you information on new products and how to use them. I see this being one of the neat things to do for Christmas with a lot of red and green involved!

  • Imaphi

    I only had one kid trick or treating this year and we still have way too much candy in the house! My teen handed out candy and the bowl was almost empty when we got home – then we added little brother’s haul to bowl and it was overflowing again. UGH!!!

  • TK

    I’m so happy to see an actual person roll one of these flowers! I was really nervous about purchasing the cartridge (or Flower Shoppe), but I also really wanted it!!! Now, I can see the flowers are not as intimidating as I had thought, plus it’s good to know which carts are really “all around” good. And stamps on top of it? Wow, one can only dream (hah). Thanks, Megan

  • Melanie Lewis

    Thank you so VERY much for sharing the great benefits of this cartridge! I have seen it, but didn’t know it really had so much great stuff on it! LOVE the flowers and the way you showed how to make them! Thanks for all you do!

  • Margaret

    Loved the video, I make boxes but had trouble finding something to hold them together now I know what to use, thanks to you. You are the best, Look forward to Tuesdays because of nyou. Will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Thanks for the giveaways we all love them and love you

  • Claudia

    Oh, that Cartridge is a must have. I love what is on it. Those flowers are just too cute!
    Thanks for another fun tutorial. I am wondering were to get the stamps? Prayers and blessings to all of you, even the behind the scene people.

  • Barbara Escalante

    I was following up on your China trip. It sounded very interesting and fun. The typhoon was probably scarey. I used to live in Taiwan and the storms there had to be experienced to be believed.
    I am looking forward to more tutorials about the cartridges and ideas on how to use them.

  • Debby J

    Love the stamp set and the video.
    Megan, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you do for everyone. You are amazing -I know what it is like to raise a family, work outside the home(I taught special ed) and have your own business-my hubby and I did it for many years and we became closer because of it. The kids were thrilled to travel with us on weekends and they saw and learned so much more then their friends and still talk about those days. Good comes from good and I know that whatever you are experiencing now, you will get through it stronger than ever. We are all praying for you – your extended family.

  • Jackie B

    Hello Megan, The power of Prayer is so great, the fact that you and your husband are stepping out on faith as you grow. Just remember your blesings and where they came from. I just love your litle gift box. Thanks for sharing your talent.

  • Carolyn Hartle

    Thanks for the chance to win. Like the cartridge. Belong to Melanie’s site, very creative peerson and thank you Tanner for a chance to win his stamps. have went to his site several times

  • Mary Corta

    Our lives are charted with a map of choices. Some of them we make are good, others not so good! Either way we learn and grow along our journey. Whatever spiritual guide we choose, we are never alone, and we are all praying you and Sean are successful in the choices you make for your journey. Heaven knows you have been an inspiration to soooooooooooo many of us, we hope to share that inspiration with you. Thank you, Megan, for all you do.

  • Linda P

    Thanks for sharing. This cartridge looks fabulous. I have never heard of Mr Cricut Crazy stamps before!
    So another thing to think about. Thanks for your great video!

  • Debbie B

    Great project! I have not purchased this cartridge yet, but I do have others that I could use for this. The Flower Shoppe is a super cartridge for flowers! Thanks for a chance to win! Ciao db:)

  • kathy

    Megan, You and Sean will certainly be in my prayers. We all go through struggles in life and I feel GOD answers our prayers in HIS own way and HIS own time. Be patient, still and listen as HE will speak to you. Thanks for reaching out for our prayers as you know though prayer good things happen!!!

  • Kathy

    Megan: Your prayer request touched a sweet note! My husband and I will pray for you and your family. Nothing is more important and it is clear that you know this…..You are in the best “years of your life” right now….before you two know it, those little ones will be grown up and on their own and you will miss them…and any struggle going on right now will be far behind you… hang in there and hang on to God….we did and we are so very glad to still have each other (married 27 years now)….It is so nice after all these years to know that we still have each other and will always be there for each other….can’t express to you enough how sweet your love will be with the passing of years and the blessings of the Lord. Hope all gets better for you and your family (and, it will….just a time issue!)….Thanks for your blog and the chance to win too!

  • susan

    I used the Art Philosophy cartridge to make 1 3/4 inch takeout boxes onto which I put a 1 inch lobster from the In My Kitchen cartridge to make favor boxes for my mother-in-law’s 90th birthday party which was held at a Red Lobster. The favor boxes got raves!

  • Colleen

    Great box & flowers it is a great cartridge. It is on my Christmas list, so I hope my DH gets it for me! Tanner’s stamps are great too, thanks for the giveaway.

  • Lisa R

    Cute finished product, Megan. I too love the box feature on Cricut cartridges and I’ve had my eye on a cartridge with the 3D flowers. I guess it’s time to put them all together.

  • Stacey Halbgewachs

    Megan – You and your amazing family are always in our prayers. Several months ago I bought a Smash book with the intention of keeping all of the funny things the boys say in it… but it has since been turned into a prayer journal!! May you find your way with His guidance. When you dwell on the possibilities that God has provided us, you will see that the opportunities are endless πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the tutorial! I have this cart and love it! I haven’t had as much time to play as I would like but the snowy days of January and February are just around the corner (UGG)!!!

  • MaluLoves

    About 20lbs of candy!!! That IS insane…..and pretty AWESOME!! Lol. We didn’t do to well here but the chitlins loved getting dressed for Halloween and if I could post pics, my little zombies would scare the buhgeeezez outta ya πŸ˜‰ kinda. Lol. Also. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Change is usually uncomfortable (I have my little safe zone I’m trying to adjust to also, lol) and@ the end of the day….it all works out now and for the unseen future! Sprinkling blessing over you! πŸ™‚ Thanks 4 all u do!

  • Jean

    Megan, hope that all of the trials and tribulations resolve themselves. just remember the priorities in life and work toward that, Family, friends and love keep you strong,
    thanks for the chance to win!

  • Amy Little

    I just love my Art Philosophy cartridge. I have however had troubles loading it on my gypsy. I never got it to work and I haven’t tried again. Love the box.

  • scrappinc

    Megan ~ Please know that we are all here for you and for all of the rest of us. We are all a great community and we all support each other. You always have such wonderful things to say and wonderful projects. I feel that you are just like us with everyday life. I especially like when there is a mishap with the cricut or any other crafty thing and you show us all how to put it all together and come out with something wonderful. Sometimes in life we really don’t like stepping out of our comfort zone, but every once in a while something wonderful comes from it.
    You will be in our prayers and I think we are all in your prayers.
    Have a wonderful week and we will all be in this together.
    Cindy Lou

  • Connie Lewis

    Thank you Megan! Loved this cartridge and the stamps. I could do all sorts of stuff with them if I were lucky enough to actually win. That would be so awesome! You are such a blessing and I love your teaching style. I am praying for you and your family. Life is tough and when we try to do what is right, it sometimes gets tougher. Hang in there…God will provide everything – we just have to give Him our focus. Thanks again for everything! Love, Connie

  • LeeAnn from NC

    Fun video. Looks like a great cartridge with a lot of variety on it, the kind I like the best ! I’d love to win a stamp set…winning anything at all if fun ! Keeping you and your family in prayers as you work on growing your business and preserving your family life…must be hard to balance it all. So glad you and Sean can do it together !

  • Trisha

    Thanks for the tutorial! I am going to have to buy that cartridge one of these days…I’ve been watching Courtney create with it too! Congratulations on all your successes!

  • Susan Smith

    Hi Megan! I’m a relatively new papercrafter. So far, what I’ve done the most of is collecting Cricut carrtridges πŸ˜‰ But I’m intrigued by your gift box demo in the video from the Art Philosophy cart (which I REALLY need of course!). Do most people use the same weight of card stock for gift boxes that they would use on other projects like scrapbook pages or cards? Or do they choose a heavier cardstock if you are going to actually put something in the gift box?

  • Crystal Nichols

    I would love to win stamps:-), but who wouldn’t love to win something. Megan Thank you for all the inspiration and Thank Mr. Cricut Crazy for donating the stamps for us to win. Megan rebuke any thought that is not of God becuase He has thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope (NKJ Jeremiah 29:11). Remember that even in dark times we are to deilight ourselves in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart (Psalms 37:4). May your family be blessed and I am glad you got to have a warm halloween with Britten and her family.

  • Joene

    I really enjoyed the video. The flowers are so realistic looking. God has certainly brought you a long ways and He will continue to do so. Said a prayer for you and your family. Keep looking up!

  • Denyse Rose

    I’m new to this and although my birthday cake had more candles that the fire marshall said was safe (just kidding) I feel like I found a whole new community that loves doing what I do and each day I get a new present with your teaching videos. I have to have several surgeries and I have my husband figuring how to put the computer and craft table down so I can still work in the hospital. The BEST part is your enthusiasm. It’s catching and I don’t worry about mistakes or having to do somethings over and over. If someone with your experience does a tweek now and again – so can I! Please just keep goin’ on and goin’ on and I’ll hold onto your tail for the greatest ride I’ve found in a long time!

  • Sheri C

    You and your family are an inspiration to us all. Thanks for all you do and are doing! You are on my prayer list, no such thing as to many of those!

  • JenL

    Thank you for the opportunity to win some cool stuff. I love to scrapbook, so any chance to win is awesome. Prayers to you and your family in your new endevours.

  • Pat Brasch

    Love you and all your tutorials! They brighten my day out here on the West Coast in Oregon.
    I’d love to be a winner! Creating cards is one of my passions along with other paper arts endeavors and calligraphy.

  • Jacque

    WOW, thanks for this video. I was wondering how to get my flowers to look right. I appreciate your videos so much., You are truly an inspiration.

  • Lyn M.

    I love that you are a strong lady and I know whatever trials he gives you is just to make you a stronger person! I can’t thank you enough for this gift giveaway. We are trully blessed to have a Megan Elizabeth πŸ™‚

  • Tina

    Hi Megan. I absolutely loved you’re post today. Aren’t the flowers soooooo cute? I wanted to say thanks so much for the little video clips. They seem to inspire me at the spur of moment, all the while my 6mo old daughter is usually not cooperating. Keep them coming. Also, I do not have this particular cartridge, but I am looking to get it soon. Have a great day. scrapmomma

  • Sheri C

    Just and FYI … when my mats are just about done but I haven’t had time to “resticky” them I use my brayer. Just roll it over your paper on the mat and it will help you to get a little more goodie out of the mat, and it will stick well enough to cut out your flowers without coming off.

  • Emily

    Thank you for sharing this video and your personal status. Thank you for being transparent, we all are not perfect. It is progression not perfect!! Your family is in our prayers and we serve an awesome God!! Thank you again for all the inspiration.

  • Pam D

    Great projects, looks like a really nice cart, (didn’t really get to see what was in the stamp sets, boohoo!) you make everything look so easy, you go! Praying for God’s provision for you and your family. “In this world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, for I have over come the world.” It’s all about Him. TFS!
    God bless!

  • Judy

    I love doing boxes, and that little gift box is cute. Did some pumpkin boxes for halloween that came out really cute and also woking on pilgram boxes for my daughters table for thanksgiving.

  • Kathy Brubaker

    I bought this Cartridge when it first came out, you have now inspired me to get it out today, and start making those cute flowers. Thank you for making it look easy and fun, I could watch you all day long.

  • meilan

    Thank you for having such a fun website!
    We had over 350 Halloween visitors last night, and many of them were former students of mine (3rd grade teacher) What a delight to see so many kids having fun!

  • Christine H

    It is great to see something made with the cartridge. I just bought it and am so excited! I may have to go make something right now : )

  • Judi

    The flowers are amazing and it’s also amazing that you can work so well under the time pressure, Megan. Great job! You actually do make it look easy. Thanks for providing all of this useful information.

  • kimberly j ones

    I love that you show the variety of what a cartridge can do! If I had seen this I would have thought it was nice but you made me realize how versatile it really is…Thank you!! Now I must order. Keep up the great work!

  • Lisa Dawn

    Precious and love the stamp set too. Is it pink? It sure looks like a pretty pink! Thanks for continuing to share with us, YOU are awesome as well!

  • Jackie

    Dear, dear Megan — I find it so encouraging that you do not always do things perfectly either. You are a very real person and teacher. We all can identify with you, and that is very special. Thank you so much for your tutorials; we learn so much from them. And may you continue to through your burdens on the Lord. God bless!

  • tina kuhlmann

    i’ve followed u from the beginning. got all ur dvd’s and just now join ur club. u are awesome…god will lead you and ur family where u need to be. and i will be praying the road will be smooth.

  • Jewel

    Megan, Thank you for all your hard work in bringing us these videos. You do an amazing job! This is my first time to comment. I think in part, cause you asked for prayers. Done. Just wanted you to know that there are probably many of us out here that enjoy your videos and don’t post comments. But we quietly enjoy them πŸ™‚
    Thanks again, Jewel

  • vickie barker

    the box is sooo cute…we women are so lucky to have the luck that we do with playing with nice clean toys like the cricut..sorry men, you can have your garages, we have Megan and her wonderful site full of fun and challenging ideas. Hope my day brings in the luck of being picked. thanks again for all that you share with us…

  • kazumi Edwards

    Hi Megan,
    thank you for the great video, love those flowers πŸ™‚
    I also have gray clouds on my sky lately. I have been felling alone during my walk, but I know that God said that He is the only one that will be always by my side πŸ™‚
    Jeremiah 29:11
    11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, β€œplans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
    I have been hanging by this verse as a reminder of God’s perfect plan for us. I know that we may not understand at the moment, but we will later.
    Have a Blessed week you and you family and always remember that God never give you more than you can handle.
    God Bless,
    Kazumi Edwards

  • Dee Kortan

    Thank you for all your sharing and caring! Sometimes we need little “challenges” in life to keep us on track and remind us what’s important. Continue to grow, that’s the beauty of life. Never stop seeking to grow and make the world a better place. I wish you and your family the best that life has to offer.

  • Mary Jane

    I always enjoy your tutorials and the give aways but more importantly today, I wanted to tell you that I will pray for you, Sean, and your family. It is a very difficult time in all of our lives. We are not alone. We need to ask others to pray for us because we all know that prayer works. You are in my prayers.

  • Margie Welch

    I am new to your website, but I appreciate the things you post and your commitments. I will be praying for you and your family in this season. God will bless.

  • Sharon Chapman

    Great video-my first visit to your site and I’m very impressed. I have this cartridge but am very new to making cards so I enjoy seeing experts stamp and use the Cricut!! Blessings to you and I’ll be back to see more of your tutorials:)

  • Katherine A

    Glad the children had a fun Halloween. It was cold and rainy here.

    hi Megan.I wanted to say what a great job you are doing by educating everyone on how to use the.cricut machines.I do believe that provocraft should also realize that you are.selling the machine.for them.the projects that are made with this machine.are adding to their.sales.keep up the great job.Alina from

  • Joan

    What a great cartridge. There are so many things that you can do with this one instead of having to change to get what you want.

    Thanks for the great site.

  • Kathy

    I love all your tutorials. You make everything look so easy. I’ll have to order the cricut cartridge you used because I think the tiny flowers were terrific. Like your stamp said “Make A Wish” and mine will be that all works out for you professionally and personally. I will keep your family in my prayers.

  • Sue L

    I love the box and the flowers.. Is there any that make a pinecone? Thinking about wreathes at christmas. How big can you make the flowers? Fit to page? How do they look?

    • Pat Brasch

      Dear addicted to stamps: In order to keep track of the stamps you have, I suggest using a notebook. Stamp each stamp on a page in categories. At a quick glance you’ll be able to see what you have in each category. I have a flat file (large, flat drawers) made of wood in which I keep most of my wood mounted stamps. I categorize my stamps in these drawers as well by putting all stamps of one category in one section. I use clear acrylic picture frames (like boxes) to help departmentalize my stamps in these drawers. I have far fewer clear stamps. I prefer the wood mount for most of my stamps.. Hope my comments are helpful.

  • sharon peters

    What a wonderfull give away love the cartridge as for lollies well we did our first trick or treat in our small town here in Narrabri NSW Australia and it was a great experiance for many local children

  • Nancy Lee

    Thank you so much for the project. I bought this cartridge several months ago at a scrapbook expo but have not got around to using it yet. I made my granddaughters necklaces so this box will be great to put them in.

  • Carrie Sibley

    I love the cricut cartridges with the boxes. I never got into the cricut, although I purchased it, until the bags, tags, and boxes was expired. I so love getting boxes to place gifts into, and your videos give me all sorts ideas to use these on. The fact you use stamps and all sorts of embellishments confirms my trips to the crafts store to purchase these little divy’s.

  • Ana Balcarcel

    Hola…Love this project. Too cute. I bought this cartridge but have yet started to play with it. You have inspired me to do so. Thanks for the opportunity to win a stamp set. Prayers are sent your way. Hang in there.

  • Julie Warner

    My grandson isn’t a big fan of chocolate, but as you mentioned everyone gives out chocolate at Halloween. So it looks like mom and dad will be working on the stash for weeks to come LOL! But you should see the darling photos they took. Can’t wait to start scrapbooking them!

  • vivian kaufman

    Just a note of thanks for all you do. I will be praying for you and your family. In times like this all families need to stay prayer. We know that all things will work out if we put God first in our lives and follow his word. God bless you and your family.

  • Carolyn N.

    Thanks so much for the video………….great info for a new Cricut Expression owner. It is important for a “newbie” to see a project from beginning to completion, rather than just function/button instructions. Also, thanks for showing how to make the cute little flowers. I had seen the ‘spiky spirals’, but wasn’t sure what to do with them. Eureka……….flowers!!! Great info……….thanks again. Have a wonderful day!!!

  • Carolyn N.

    OMG!!! I just discovered your website recently, and it’s your fault that I am getting farther and farther behind on my housework and gardening. There are so many videos and so much information that I can’t seem to pull myself away from my computer in order to do my work. Oh well, it will just have to wait……….I’m having too much fun! Thanks for all you do, and ‘keep it up!’

  • Jean Skura

    What a cute, simple gift box with such great adornments. As always, thanks for sharing with us. Whatever it is that is going on in your life at the moment, may the love and healing of the divine be with you and yours.

    I first saw the art philosophy a month or so again and loved it, and now I see everyone using it, makes it want it more. I can not wait to get it. I did order Flower Shoppe and waiting for it to be delivered any day now. I also love paper flowers. Unfortunately, I have not heard of Mr. Cricut Crazy, but now I am curious, I will check it out. I also enjoy your videos and thanks for sharing.

  • PageR

    Yes, the CTMH Art Philosophy is more than just a cartridge, it coordinates with several stamps that you get with the cartridge as well as others in the catalog. I can’t wait to udpate my Imagine to get a real look at all the Art P cartridge has to offer.

    And, many blessing to you and your family, Megan.

  • Joan Peters

    This is the first time I have seen this cartridge demonstrated with something that I might like to have. The flowers are really cute and I would love to have some of his stamps. You are so special and I love all of your special instructions for creating things.

  • Linda W

    Love the Chinese takeout box. I wanted one of these awhile back and couldn’t find a pattern for it. So, guess what, I designed my own! I am also addicted to the spiral flowers.

    Praying for you. We are so blessed by all that you do for us; the least I can do is pray…so I will continue to lift up your family in prayer! Change is never easy, homeschooling isn’t easy, adding a work load on isn’t easy, and sometimes….just plain old life isn’t easy. Thanks for a chance to win the stamps and for sharing your lives with us.

  • Lorraine B

    Hi Megan, this is the first time I’ve done a comment on your blog; I’m sure it won’t be the last though. As soon as I read your post I offered a prayer for you and Sean as requested. Hope your situation improves shortly for you. Kind regards and best wishes from sunny South Australia – Lorraine x

  • Brandy Rinearson

    Great video…didn’t realize they were that easy to make. I am going to have to make some. These flowers and treat box would be perfect to make for my mom-n-laws 40th wedding party. Thanks for sharing.

  • Judy Moore

    You are always so encouraging to all of us and give us inspiration. You’re very right we all have struggles in our lives and as long as we have faith and prayers we can get through anything. You are a great mother, wife and business woman and through prayer you’ll be able to overcome whatever struggles you and your family might be going through. My prayers are certainly with you.

  • Marie

    Thank you for featuring this product! There is so much in it! Did you know that it also comes with 3 stamp sets that coordinate and 3 sets of dimensional elements too? This is the only cartridge that I have been using since I acquired it in late August. Close To My Heart did a fabulous job with this cartridge–so glad to see you use it to share with others.

  • Roz Taylor

    Megan, You are such a wonderful person. I really appreciate all that you do. I have been so inspired by your enthusiam that I hold an Arts and Crafts night once a week with the younger generation on my block. I teach younsters all day about how to stay away from drugs and alcohol and then come home to plan what cards to make. I try so be just like you but you are more organized than I am, lol. I will continue to keep you and your family in my prayers as I hope you will do the same for me. Just remember, God doesn’t put more on you then you can bare. He does all things for a reason, which we in turn will learn and grow from it. Best wishes and if you ever need another prayer partner, let me know.

  • Buffy Scott

    Hello, I am loving your website. I guess you could say I am fairly new, I have been with your website for about 2 months now, and I love it! I check it everyday for something new. I have watched ALL of the past videos and loved them all, so I guess I am all caught up. I am thinking about signing up for the monthly kits. They look so fun to do. I really enjoy watching Megan going through the kits and doing projects,that helps alot. I am more of a hands on person, like so me some examples, and you do just that. Anyway, thanks for the chance to win!!! Buffy Scott

  • Linda

    Thanks for the great tutorial/video. I always love to watch and learn from you. I do know about personal struggles and sometimes look at others lives and feel jealous for a little while. But with just about everybody I know we all have our own struggles to go through. Sometimes I look back and thank God for the struggles and sometimes I ask why. But thanks to people like you, I get to watch a fun little video that makes me smile and enjoy one of the things that brings me enjoyment and that’s crafting.
    Loved your little box and the flowers. Way cute. I love that cartridge. I got to use someones at a craft weekend and it’s about the only cartridge I wanted to use. Someone will be very happy to win it.

  • Tonya J

    Yes, there is so much candy!!! Whew!!! My goal is at least to try to have less come home that we bought *that was a fail this year* but the kids enjoy it.

  • Judy Hyde

    Thanks for showing the Art Philosophy cartridge. I just got it and haven’t had a chance to paly with it
    and now I can’t wait to start using it. The box and flowers were adorable and looked way easy. Thanks for the chance to win the stamp set. Will keep you and Sean in my prayers!

  • Lori

    You do a fantastic job on your tutorials. I learn so much from each one. This CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge is a “must have” .

    I so appreciate your tutorials. I bought the Flower Shoppe but haven’t tried the flowers yet. I will now that you have shown us how. Thanks so much.

  • Monica

    I love your box! Question. The little triangles that you glued the sides to, shouldn’t they go on the outside? That way it looks like a chineese take out box? I heard you call it a Chinese rice box. Just asking.

    I just ordered the Art Philosophy cartridge and waiting for it to arrive. Thanks for the video to give me an idea on something I can make. Love seeing how others use their Expression.

    I watched the video for the umpteenth time & decided I really wanted some of the Paper Layerz. I decided I would order some tonight. I got up this morning and before I left for work @ 6:50, I had cut th French Fry box and several flowers. Got to work and assembled them before starting time. Checked my email at lunch & guess what – survey & free shipping code. Tried to order from work, but must have put in one of the many passwords I had there, so PayPal wouldn’t take it. Not to worry, I ordered tonight with my AOL email that is tied to PayPal. But, after work (5:00) we went to vote, came home & processed a couple of quarts of persimmonn pulp, cooked diner & cut some flowers. I was not happy with my flowers this morning. I have arthritic “sausage” fingers and couldn’t get them to roll nice. Tonight, I used my paper quilling tool and rolled from the straight edge and removed when I got to the circle area. It rolled tight, but when I loosened up the roll, VIOLA! really nice flowers.

    I would have ordered the paper soon, anyway, but with the free shipping I could justify buying a pack of paper and DVD for myself and a pack of paper for my daughter.

    Thanks again for the great inspiration.

  • Betts Paschke

    As usual, you present the information in a way that makes me eager to try it myself.
    I want to purchase the Art Philosophy cartridge. I went to the “Close to my Heart” website and requested how to order it, but haven’t received an answer. I would really appreciate your assistance. Thank you and hope to see my name in the “winner’s circle.” :>)

      If you haven’t been able to find a cartridge yet, I am a Close to my Heart Consultant and it is available on my website:

      I would love to be able to help you with this….This “AP Cart” is absolutely awesome!! It has 700 images including a font and 3 D items and all the basic shapes you might need. The icing on the cake is the clear stamps that come with the cart that match it…..

    I love both the video you have made for us and the cartridge you used. I would love to win it as well as the stamps you have used. A great little project for both me and my granddaughters.

    Am just getting started reading your site. I really like the first one. I recently got a cricut machine and am still trying to learn all I can about it. Thanks for your tutorials. Will say a prayer for you and your stepping out of your comfort zone. May God bless you.

    Thank you soooo much for this video! I needed to finish cards for a card exchange and purchased the cartridge and stamps, but couldn’t figure out how to roll the flowers!! You really helped. I appreciate the tutorial. Hugs from ND.
