Welcome to Jackie's Craftroom

Welcome to my blog. A place for me to share my love of cardmaking, scrapbooking and bug covers with all my friends. Take a look around and see what I have been creating. I am a member of the Cricut MB, it is almost an addiction ;)
I love designing and making cards, dabble in scrapbooking and make the original reversible covers for all types of crafting gadgets.

My Happy Place = My Craft Room :)

Marti from Pezadoodle has aswered our call for Swarm prizes

Our good friend and fellow Cricut MB sister Marti from http://www.pezadoodle.com/ has kindly offered to make a prize donation for our Swarm. A big thank you Marti from all the Aussie Swarmers.

We have an Aussie sponsor for our Swarm :)

That's right we have a sponsor from Australia, I am so happy to introduce Mandy from http://www.scrappy-go-lucky.com.au/ We have a fantastic prize coming from Mandy, something that you might not have seen before, as usual once the Swarm is on you will all know, but it is a product that will be very useful with your Cricut machines.............................. I have to give myself a crash course on how to use it/them so I can show you while you are at the Swarm. I will wrap the prize and post a pic once it arrives. I can tell you that all attending the Swarm will also be receiving a 10% off voucher when you shop at http://www.scrappy-go-lucky.com.au/

As well as the sponsorship by http://www.scrappy-go-lucky.com.au/ I have been asked to join their design team and I am dizzy with excitement and have design ideas going through my head a at a million miles an hour. I will let you all know when I have my designs up for display on their blog.

Pink Expression with a new exclusive cartridge.

The people at Provo Craft have come up with a new Expression machine, it is pink. It comes with Plantin Schoolbook and Accent Essentials cartridges plus the exclusive cartridge called "Pink Journey" So I guess it is geared towards raising funds for Breast Cancer awareness, what a great idea. These pink Expressions are available from Michael's store in the US.
Lets hope they also let this cartridge become available on it's own for everyone to buy and help raise even more funds for a great cause.

This got me to thinking about what new cartridges are on my wish list and here they are.


Do you know there are now 101 carts. (99 if you don't count the two international versions of Keystone and Daisychain)

What's on your wish list?

Happy 50th Rita word book

Well after seeing the word book I made for my friend Stacey (see posting below) one of the guests at the party commissioned me to make one for her mother's 50Th.
I used the George and Plantin Schoolbook cartridges for this project and the design studio software. Let me know what you think about it.
