Pop up gift card holders!

These were so easy and fast to put together but I don't remember when I got the pattern.  Too much Christmas since then.

The paper was from October Afternoon and was two sided so I could get different looks out of just a few sheets.

Decorated my Frig!

Well I couldn't sleep last night so I decorated my frig.  I have a stainless steel frig so it was had deciding what to used so I used my Imagine and Snow Angels cartridge.  Ornaments were cut at 5 inches and the bow is from Better Together but changed the paper to one off of Snow Angels cartridge.  The lines are just cut strips of the printable vinyl.  Hope you like it, my family was surprised when they woke up.

For the weekly challenge you had to use flowers so I added these little red roses to my ribbons for a little extra C-U-T-E.

Christmas LO

I challenged myself to use as many carts as I could on this LO.  I used Art Philosophy for the shape top right for my stamping.  Stamp and cart are from CTMH.  Joys of the Season for the holly and Merry Christmas, Calligraphy Collection for 2011, Cindy Loo for the green border, Plantin SchoolBook for the scallop, and Cake Basics for the red scroll work. White papers are just marking where the pictures go as this is for this Christmas' pictures. Paper is mostly Anne Griffith Christmas from last year.

Last two and I'm going to call it a night.

Thank you for all the kind compliments.  These really are pretty simple just added the cricut cuts and some pearls.  The glitter paper was glitter by number.

Another glittery card

One more left to design. I am having trouble with CCR it is making me update every time I cut with it.  That is such a hassle I guess it would be easier to use the gypsy but I am really trying to get the hang of the CCR.

Glitter Cards with Art Nouveau

I had these little glitter pictures that I picked up last year during Christmas clarence (picked up for the glitter inside the kit).  I loved the pictures so much decided to make cards out of them with the help of Art Nouveau.  Hope you like them.  There are four more yet to be made so come back soon and see if I got them finished.  Hope you enjoy.

Sorry about the pictures didn't want to wait until the sun came up.

More cards, Boy I am on a roll!

These are all made from embellishment I had made and put in a box and scraps of paper.

Holly Berry House Stamp

I made this card with a Holly Berry House stamp, K& Company paper, glitter paper, Sophie cartridge, Cricut, some inks, and gems.  The glitter is Glitter Art, I love it because the glue tip is so fine and goes on so easy.  This glitter is amazing.

Cards for little Boys!

I have been trying to make cards for my mom's stash for a while now and I have finished quite a few.  These are the ones I did yesterday.  Pattern is from the CTMH wishes book.  I used 9 sheets of 8 1/2x 11 white card stock (8 for the card bases) 1 sheet of colored and 1 sheet of patterned paper to make 18 cards.

The paper and stickers were Little boy by Echo park, I used cuts from Robotz cricut cartridge, some CTMH stamps and inked the edges of some of the cards.  Hope you enjoy them.
