5 Days of Give-A-Ways on Joy’s Life.com!!

That’s my furry BFF, Domino.  (Don’t be afraid.  I have non-furry friends too.  LOL!)

I wanted to do a little something to celebrate the start of CHA which is the International Craft and Hobby Association trade show.  I’m sad that I’m too swamped to go, but I’m happy that some of my work will be there at the Cri-Kit’s booth #2041.  I’ll show you a video about what I made soon!  I sincerely hope that my work took some large suitcases with it because I want it to bring me back pictures and lots of cool stuff.  I also hope that my work has it’s own money because I don’t think I can afford it’s shopping habits.

So, be sure you check in with me all week starting Monday (and before and after that too…because you never know what SuperJoy might post).  I can tell you that I bought some Cricut cartridges in anticipation of this Give-A-Way!!  Woo hoo!  Hey, I’ll also have crafty posts to go along with my give-a-ways.  YAY!

  4. Ooooooh sounds good to me!! I bought the Cri-Kits (since I didnt win them.. boo hoo) and am now anxiously awaiting their arrival. Thanks for having such a fun blog!

  5. Domino may not be excited but I am. Cri-Kits are definitely at the top of my wish list. Love your video.

    Happy Cat!!!!

  9. I’m a kitty lover too! I have a gray and white kitty named Sweetie. She is absolutely sweet and only comes out of her hidi-holes when strangers aren’t around.

    My second kitty is named Neo. Named after the movie the Matrix. (I love Keanu Reeves!) He is my baby. He purrs a lot!

    Both kitties are lap cats! They are always head butting our hands in hopes that they will get pet. (We always comply!)

    Can’t wait for Monday! Monday’s are usually a drag, but now I have something to look forward to!

    I am so excited!!

  12. Hi Joy:
    I was so impressed with your video on dry embossing with the Cricut I dug out my decorator foil and tried a b’fly in Walk in My Garden and the bird/ b’dly and brackets in Home Accents. How neat. Question: How did you do the bee that you demonstrated without it tearing (all those curly q’s)? I ended up with my settings at Speed 3, Pressure 5 and Depth 4, what are yours?
    Anxious to hear if you cut it out w. the cricut also, I cut mine out with a scissor. Anxious to hear from you about this.

    1. Hey Rosie,
      I can’t remember what my settings were. I’m going to have to try that again and see. Also, I didn’t cut it out, but I think if you just left the metal where it is then put the blade in and then did a shadow cut you’d get a nice cut. You might use the deep cut blade for that too. 😉 If you have a Gypsy or Design Studio you could get it lined up perfectly for the cut. 🙂 Good luck!

  28. Hi Joy: Great Video….I need to go through the others you have…My gypsy doesn’t seem to have those layered tabs that you show. Must be doing something wrong. I got the “other” gel pens holder. I haven’t had much luck with it. Guess it all comes down to practice, practice. Look forward to more of your videos…
