Jubilee Cards made with cricut Artiste

These cards were made with the Artiste cartridge from CTMH. It amazes me how many times I have looked at the images on this cartridge and can still come up with new creations! Its endless. These were made with the Jubilee paper pack. The first pocket card was cut at 4-1/4" and the insert was hand cut to fit inside. The pinwheels are on page 50, and the base pinwheel(yellow) is cut at 1-3/4" the middle(red)at 1-1/2" and the top is the layering pinwheel cut at 2". The 2nd card was cut at 6"- and I used twine to close it. Both cards bases are found on page 67 of Artiste cartridge.

Paper Clip Banner card

Hello! I was inspired by a fellow consultant, Katy Taylor who made these cute little paper clip embellishments. I decided to make some and use them for a card. They would also be very cute on a layout. The fun thing about them is they use just a tiny amount of scraps, and add a nice embellishment! I used Ariana paper pack, and the featured September Special stamp set (#30YearsofHappy- see my website on how you can get this set for FREE ONLY this month!). I also used the awesome Quatrefoil Embossing folder (Z1926) and silver shimmer trim (Z1799), Dots (Z1853) and a few other retired bling/buttons. You can really use anything to make these fun!

Confetti Wishes Birthday Layout using Cricut

The Confetti Wishes paper pack (X7189B)was the first paper pack I purchased from the new catalog for CTMH! The colors are awesome. (they didn't photograph as well as they look in person!)The new color THISTLE is my favorite new color, and it compliments the new yellow color, Canary. This layout was really fun to make. I cut the hats using Art Philosophy cartridge at 7". They are cut using the triangle banner. They are topped with the pinwheels from Artiste on page 55, cut at 2-3/4". The word "celebrate" is cute at 1-1/2" in both Pear and Canary colors, layered. The embellishments are Z2044, Confetti Wishes Assortment.I also used a retired stamp set Connections (D1330)for the hat topper stamps.

Ghost Selfies

Well, I sure haven't posted in a while, so today I decided to post a few items I have been in my new studio creating. Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE Halloween, so I started making my annual cards. This one is made with the new stamp set Frightfully Fun (B1453). I colored the creatures with the new Shinhan Touch markers that CTMH now sells. This can be addicting! It brings back childhood memories to color. I used the Warm Gray Light Orange, Pastel Green, Turquoise Blue, and Vivid Green.
