Artistry Cricut Cartridge/ Zoe 2 page Layout/ CTMH

With inspiration from Char's Crafty Creations, I added a few extra touches to this fabulous two page layout. Using CTMH's Zoe paper pack and Artistry Cricut cartridge, you too, can create this adorable scene.

To create a great LO, it's all in the details.

Add texture with embossing and inking.

Add shading with a little ink and a sponge. Pop a few of the clouds up.
I cut the kite with tail twice in 2 different colors of cardstock and cut the bows off to paper piece them back onto the tail. 
These background images are great as fillers on scrapbook pages when you don't have enough photos. A little bling goes a long way! 

I hope this inspires you to create something special today.

Box and Cards Set/ Artiste Cricut Cartridge/ Sept SOTM Paper Garden

CTMH September Stamp of the Month called Paper Garden in combination with Sangria paper was used to create this beautiful box and card set. The box can be cut using the Artiste cartridge. The flowers, leaves and border were also cut using this cartridge.
I used 3 new gorgeous new colors ink colors named Eggplant, Pomegranate and Fern. To create the two tone color on the flowers, I used the stamp rolling technique.  

The box holds these 4 cute little 3x3 cards and envelopes.

This is the stamp set that was used called Paper Garden. It's only available this month! Don't miss it!

I hope this inspires you to create something amazing today.

Roommate Gifts for the 2015 CTMH Convention

Love Close to my Heart and our conventions. Here are some of the roomie gifts I made. First, an UP themed magnetic pin. Used Art Philosophy and Artfully Sent Cricut cartridges. Love our clear embossed Paper Fundamentals papers

 Secondly, I decorated a little note book with CTMH's Chalk-It-Up paper. Used cuts from Art philosophy and Artfully Sent cricut cartridges.

 The little canvas note book fit perfectly into our Lagoon paper bags!
 Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge was used to create this swing card. I made 15 of these to pass out at convention and only 5 of them were made with CTMH's wonderful glitter paper for the castle.

I hope this inspires you to create something from your heart today!
