Well, the frost is definitely on the pumpkin this morning as we had our first “freeze” overnight in southeast Nebraska! I have to say that I won’t be all that sad to say goodbye to my gardens for the year. They haven’t been very high on my priority list this year anyway!
What has been high on my list, though, is crafting–specifically making Halloween cards! Here are two pop-up Halloween cards that I recently made using retired Close To My Heart paper and the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.
The Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge makes it so easy to make these cards! All you have to do is pick your papers and coordinating cardstock and push CUT!
If you need any Close To My Heart products, please shop HERE. I would be happy to help you with any of your paper crafting needs!
Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day! Laurie
Welcome to my final installment of Easter cards for 2016! I loved making all these cards and look forward to a fun and inspirational Easter week!
This first card is from Artfully Sent by Close To My Heart. It is a cute pop up card with a bunny inside and the appropriate “Hoppy Easter” sentiment. There are so many cute pop up cards on this cartridge for all kinds of occasions–you can check it out HERE!
The next card was so easy to make! I simply searched for Easter images in Design Space and designed away! I love how you can even change the colors of the images and layers so that you can see exactly what your project will look like even before you cut.
I hope you have all enjoyed my series of Easter cards and as always, thanks for stopping by today! Now it’s on to Graduation, Mother’s Day, Weddings…!! Laurie

Today I would like to share the Valentine I made for my grandson. The inspiration for this card came from Melanie Brown at Courtney Lane, Margi Gilbertson at Artsy Margi and a cute little sock monkey I found at Walmart.
I used the sock monkey cut from Artfully Sent by Close To My Heart along with Cranberry, Glacier, Chocolate and Black cardstock. The “love you” stamp is from the January Stamp of the Month stamp set. The only embellishment I used was a red enamel heart from CTMH.
Here is the inside of the kraft card base along with a Happy Valentine stamp from Close To My Heart. I can’t wait to see how my grandson likes the stuffed sock monkey and matching card! Of course, he had to get a couple of books, too. The former teacher in me demands that he have a book or two for every holiday!!
Today is an awesome day–make lots of people smile! Laurie
