Christmas Cards


Last week I made a few last minute Christmas cards to use for the neighbors and friends. I like how they all turned out. 





The background of this is the CTMH Paper Fundamentals-neutral and I fussy cut the stockings from Yuletide Carol. The clothespins are new the new Lovestruck clothespin and I thought they were perfect for this card. The "I Believe" is from the Yuletide Complements. 


For these two cards I used cardstock, black and honey ink and the Reason for the Season stamp. 




This is my favorite card using white and glacier cardstock, a little piece of silver glimmer cardstock and the Frosty Fun stamp set. I colored the girl and boy with my ShinHan markers. I will be doing this card for an upcoming winter card making class.


This card was made using scraps of paper I had left from Yuletide along with some bling from the Yuletide Assortment. 

All supplies for these products can be purchased here

Throwback Thursday Free to Be Me Cards



I had some Thank You cards to make for some girls in my class that got me gifts when I was done student teaching. I wanted something simple as they are only 12! I pulled out my remaining Free To Be Me paper pack and paired it with the Quick Cards-Seashell stamp. I used Flaxen and Chocolate for my inks.

Yuletide Layout


Yuletide is one of the more versatile Christmas paper packs Close to My Heart has carried in recent years. I created this fun layout to capture 2 small pictures and then a large 8 x 8 picture will go on the second page. I also used three of my Cricut Cartridges. I cut out "Merry Christmas" using Artbooking. The banner says Love & Joy and was cut with the new Artfully Sent cartridge and finally the ornament is cut using the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  I also add some gold glitter paper to give it some Christmas bling!

I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful end of 2014.

Throw Back Thursday Proplayer Cards


I just finished student teaching and some of my students got me gifts. I wanted to give them Thank You cards, but didn't want anything really fancy, because, well they are 11 and 12! These are for the 3 boys who gave me Starbuck's gift cards. 

I pulled out some old Proplayer paper and the Proplayer Workshop on the Go stamp. I stamped the "Zone" in Outdoor Denim and "in the" in Ruby.

They are simple, but I used up some paper and the students will appreciate them.
