Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I can’t believe that Halloween is this Saturday already. Our outside tree is decorated with pumpkins and ghosts ~ Big bag of treats is all ready ~ Now we just need children dressed up in costumes to come Trick or Treating 🙂

I even made a couple of “Trick or Treat” greeting cards.  This one was super easy to make and the part that really makes it look special is the Black Shimmer Trim.  Shimmer trim is the perfect way to add a little sparkle to any card or scrapbook page without the mess of glitter everywhere 🙂

I just love having all the Close To My Heart products available to me so that I can always make handmade greeting cards for every occasion.

~ Happy Halloween Everyone ~

Hello My Crafty Friends,

I am having so much fun creating Christmas Cards with all of the supplies that I shared with you the other day.

If you have alot of cards to make this year and want to make it look like you spent hours making each card, when it only took a few minutes, then this is the card you need to make.

I just love making 3 dimensional cards.  It’s amazing how just one pop dot can change the entire look of a card, and when you use more it makes it even better 🙂  Having 3 dimensional card ideas then actually making your idea into a beautiful Christmas card is such a gratifying feeling

Also, for another kind of look, I stamped and punched 4 ornament images.  Then folded 3 of them in half, glued the sides together and then glued them to the image that wasn’t folded and this ornament is now popping off the card!

Come back for a visit soon to see more Christmas Card Ideas, until then…

Hello My Crafty Friends,

I have been busy working on some fun projects.  Of course making handmade cards has been on the top of my list, but I have been also looking at my small kitchen table wondering how I can make it more fun. We don’t sit at this table, it is actually for my cats to look out the window 🙂   I found a piece of fabric that I think I am going to somehow make a table top not a table cloth.  Anyway as soon as I figure it all out I will show you what I am talking about.

Here are some of the fun cards that I have been making ~ You can stop over at Stampin Upon The Island to find out how these cards were made.

Time has been flying since we moved.  Getting adjusted to the new town and even the new time zone for us has been exciting.  But with all of the great distractions, it is time to get started and make time for getting creative and to make our handmade Christmas Cards.

This year I need to incorporate our new address along with a Christmas theme.  So I decided to make a Christmas ornament using the Joys of the Season Cricut Cartridge, and a We’ve Moved rubber stamp from PSX. (I just wish this stamp had two cats in the window to represent my two boys).

Now deciding what color to make the ornament and back panel.  I choose………. Christmas green and red (how appropriate – LOL)

I used the Cricut Expression Machine to cut the ornaments.  Then I used a Cutter Bee paper trimmer to cut the red back panel.

Some other supplies that I will use is Copic Sketch markers, Elmer’s permanent dot runner, pop dots, natural polished hemp rope, Memento tuxedo black dye ink, and some sea shells from our beach (if you don’t have a beach near by, then you can always purchase shell online or in a craft store).

I printed our address on blue cardstock and used an oval paper punch from punch bunch to cut them out.  The reason why I had to do that was the space that the stamp provided was way to small for our address and if I did write that tiny, no one would have been able to read it.  So when I stamped the image on white cardstock I just masked that part of the image so it wouldn’t stamp.   Then to add some dimension I used a pop dot to raise the address from the card.  The finishing touch was attaching the sea shell with the hemp rope along with our inside message.

Wishing All Of Your Dreams Come True This Holiday Season

Merry Christmas Everyone

I have had so much fun this year making and sharing the cards that I have made with my Cricut Expression Machine with all of you.  I can’t believe all the Cricut Card Ideas that you can have with just one cartridge, then when you have alot of cricut cartridges the possibilities are endless.

But looking though all of the posts that I have made, I think that my favorite  Cricut Card is….drum roll

This was the card that I made for Mother’s Day.  I used the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge for this and some flowers from Walk in my Garden cartridge.  Our Mom’s loved it I think because they were able to see our faces on a card.

My second place favorite Cricut Card is….

I made this birthday card for my brother-in-law after he ran the New York City marathon.  I used the Paisley Cricut cartridge for the sneaker and for the background was a city border from Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  I put his running number on the back along with the same medallion that he received on the side of the sneaker. It looked like a subway token.

I have always said that making handmade greeting cards is like you are giving a present too!

Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
