Happy Easter...Bunny!

I found a card like this one on Pinterest, and found it very easy to make using my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. The face is a round circle that I trimmed to fit the corner. Cut this at 3 1/2". The ears are an oval cut at 1 3/4" and the pink card stock is cut at 1 1/2" to fit inside. The nose is a 1/2" heart shape. I drew the whiskers and eyes. Happy Easter everyone!

St Patricks Day card...a little late!

Okay- I am a bit late this year, so will have to place in my stash for next year! I punched these shamrocks out and used the CTMH Epoxy Bubbles on them. The stamp set is retired (March Word Puzzle). The concept is what I was going for, a heart of shamrocks....

Let's Hang Out- Hot Air Balloon Card

This card was made with the Avonlea paper pack from CTMH. The hot air balloons and clouds were cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge. The sentiment is from "Pun Fun Occasions" C1505.

Happily Ever After Card

I LOVE anything with owls, and this card was a fun one to make. I used the retired stamp set Soul Mates for the sentiment, and the Whoo's your Valentine owl stamp for the owls. The glitter paper is from the Whoo's your Valentine set as well.

Easter Layout

Yes, I am all ready to pop my Easter photos into this layout using Claire paper pack. The butterflies were cut out from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, and the font and navy flowers were cut from Cricut Artiste.

Pocket Card

This pocket card is perfect to house a tag with your sentiment and another tag for a gift card. I used the Buzz and Bumble paper pack (can you tell I love this set?) and embellished with buttons and the burlap ribbon. The pinwheel was made with the Cricut Artiste. The card is 5x7 in size and the tags are cut from Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. The larger Happy Birthday tag ivory colored base is 5" then I layered the brown paper at 4 3/4" and honeycomb yellow is cut at 4 1/2". The smaller bee tag brown base color is 4 1/4" and layered with the bee paper cut at 4".

Buzz and Bumble Workshop Layout

I created this Buzz and Bumble layout with elements in the new Workshop On The Go (G1054). The stamp set you see here is an exclusive to this kit, (not sold separately in the CTMH Spring catalog). It is darling...and features the BEE and the "Wonderful Beautiful You" sentiment. It also has "You are My Happy" stamp set. So cute! I used the Enjoy Life (C1439) stamp set for the vintage-y looking edges. Ink used was Saddle, Honey and Chocolate. Other accessories used were Foundry pins (Z1612), antiqued Gold buttons (Z1786), burlap ribbon ((Z1760) and Brown and Tan assortment bling (Z1753).

Claire Swing front card

I had fun making this front "swing" card. Just stamp a sentiment under the front cut out greeting, and attach with a brad. I think it's always great to send a card that creates interaction.

Bee Yourself Card

This paper has got to be my favorite from the new catalog! I made my first card today using Buzz and Bumble. Can't wait to make a layout with it as well!

Camoflauge Masculine Birthday Card

I am in need of a few masculine birthday cards...and this one does the trick.

Rainbow Chevron Birthday Card

I was in the COLOR mood when I looked outside and saw the beautiful sunshine here in Northern California this morning. I stamped this card with the chevron Close to My Heart stamp and added a quick tag.
