Sangria Fall Happy Card








I have had so much fun playing with the new Close to My Heart Artistry cartridge. I used the new Sangria paper to make this card. To create the wreath I cut it at RDS 4" and to cut the acorns I had to pull out the Art Philosophy Cartridge from CTMH and cut them at 1".

ABC Blog Hop T is for Teeth



Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter T. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their T element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Cat's blog then you're on the right track!

This last couple of weeks I have managed to finish a few layouts and cards. T is perfect for "Teeth" and my son's first dentist appoint from 2010. The Art Philosophy cartridge has the perfect flower that when the petals are cut apart look like teeth. 


Close to My Heart supplies used:

Honey cardstock
Paper Fundamentals Adventure Assortment 
Scallop Border Punch
Art Philosophy Cartridge 
and stamp from Artfully Sent cartridge

Nevermore Picture My Life


I love Close to My Heart for so many reasons, one is that I can use the Cricut Cartridge Artfully Sent to create my own Picture My Life cards to use in scrapbooking. I used the Nevermore paper packet along with the Steampunk Scoundrel stamp set.

ABC Blog Hop "S"angria Layout


Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter S. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their S element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Fun2Cre8 then you're on the right track!

I finally had a few spare moments to scrap this past weekend. I was a little hesitant at first about the Sangria paper packet and if I could successfully use it with boy pictures. However, after finding these fall pictures from 2012, I realized I could pull off the purple in the Sangria and create this great layout. I even used the Paper Garden, September Stamp of the Month, to create flowers that are stamped in Sunset for a little more "boy" in the layout. 

The Paper Garden flowers from cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge while the title "My Sunshine" is cut at 2" from the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge. The pattern is from the Magic pattern book.
