Birthday Love!

| Birthday, Close To My Heart, CTMH, Heart Broken Designs, Jackson Paper, Whimsy Paper

Today I am sharing a birthday card I made for my sweetheart. His birthday is right after Christmas so I went from Christmas wrapping to Birthday wrapping but definitely had to make a custom card. 


I used CTMH paper and images from Cricut Design Space. 

The background paper is from the Jackson Paper collection and each balloon is cut from the Paper Fundamentals Whimsy Assortment. 

I decorated the red heart balloon with Wink of Stella and added Glossy Accents to each balloon. 

The CTMH stamp I used is the Balloon Animals stamp which is the February Stamp of the month. That you can pick up soon!  

Here are links to the papers I used: 

CTMH Jackson Paper Packet

                                      
CTMH Paper Fundamentals Whimsy Paper Packet

                                   
I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!

Silhouette Mint- Unboxing

| Heart Broken Designs, Silhouette, Silhouette Mint

Today’s share is not a project but an unboxing. 

I received my Silhouette Mint in the mail and here is the unboxing. I bought this package from Overstock on Cyber Monday. I had a coupon that made it just a bit of a better deal than the Sil store. 





I have used the Mint at this point and it is awesome. I am going to post another video with how it works. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Floral Box Card

| Close To My Heart, Cricut Explore, CTMH, Heart Broken Designs, SVG Cuts

Today’s project share is the Floral Box Card from SVG Cuts. I just love box cards and love how easily these go together. You can use any paper that you would like and it all goes together perfectly.
I made this Floral Box Card a Thank You card but it would also be great for Mother’s Day or a Just Thinking of You card as well.


The best thing about box cards is that they lay flat and fit right into an envelope for mailing but are dimensional when opened!

I cut this SVG with my Cricut Explore. You can find the SVG for this box card at SVG Cuts here- 


The stamp I used was the “Just To Say…” from the Artfully Sent Cricut Collection (Z3168) and I used CTMH Cocoa from the Basics Exclusive Inks/Mini Pigment Pads Set (Z2503). 

I hope you enjoyed my project.

Christmas Explosion Box

| Uncategorized

I know, it’s supposed to be Mini Album Monday but today I am breaking the rules…well not by too much though because this Christmas Explosion box is a memory keeper as well! 

I just finished this Christmas Explosion Box yesterday and am so excited to share it with you. The lid is embellished with a glittery poinsettia, greenery and of course ribbon with a cute tag.



The inside of this explosion box has a cute Christmas scene complete with Christmas tree embellished with lights and sitting on top of a Doily for a tree skirt and is surrounded by presents. 



There are 26 spots for pictures, journaling or adding other mementos. This would be a great way to document Christmas 2015 or Christmas past. 



I hope you enjoyed my project!

Thanksgiving Paperbag Cards

| Uncategorized

Thanksgiving is so close and I have so many things on my to do list that I still haven’t done! At least one thing I can check off my to do list are these super cute and easy Thanksgiving Paperbag Cards I finished for my nieces & nephews. 

I won’t get to see them for Thanksgiving but I wanted to send them a card and a little treat.

The front of these cards are layered with Close to My Heart White Daisy Paper and Anna Griffin Halloween Paper. The Turkey images are from the Silhouette Design Store and the Happy Thanksgiving Sentiment is from Cricut Design Space.

The inside of the card is stamped with “Enjoy” and it is from Close to My Heart Perfect Picture Cricut Collection (D1681). This stamp is from the Cricut Artisty Collection which is awesome. 


Here they are completely stuffed with goodies!

If you want to see a little more, check out the video here
Here the Cricut Artistry Cartridge that you can only get from Close to my Heart.

Contains the same shapes, stamp sets, and cardstock as the cartridge collection. The only difference is the 700 images are accessed using an online code rather than a physical cartridge.*


I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!

Super cute Pad Folio Writing Pad Holders

| Uncategorized

I am a note taker and a to do list maker but most of all I want to be able to keep all of my papers together but have whatever binder or planner I am keeping them in to be cute. 

Today’s project share is just that, it’s a Pad Folio. It holds a regular sized writing pad that can be replaced over and over. It is made with Kraftex Binding so is built for wear and tear. I absolutely adore the different designer paper and it is so nice to carry around.

There is a also a pocket on the inside that holds 8 1/2 by 11 sized paper, you know for all the handouts you want to keep from a meeting and such. 

I have a few available in my etsy shop and of course can make a custom pad folio just for you!

Just Chillin Christmas Mini Album

| Uncategorized

It’s Mini Album Monday! Okay, okay so I got a little carried away last week. I was fortunate enough to be off from work to celebrate Veteran’s Day and the next day I kept thinking it was Monday so that is why it was mini album Monday on Thursday of last week. Oops!

Today’s mini album is a 6×6 chipboard mini with room for 4×6 photos or smaller and lots of space for journaling and additional embellishing. There are 6 chipboard pages for a total of 10 pages and it has wire binding. 

I really like this paper collection so didn’t add to many embellishments as I didn’t want to cover any of it. 




I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!
