The challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 this week is to use a Cricut cut that has a Word. I have been making cards for my upcoming Christmas Card Workshop and decided to share this NOEL gatefold card for my design team project. The word NOEL is from the Flower Market cartridge by Close To My Heart.
I used paper and cardstock from the Beary Christmas collection by Close To My Heart. The snowflakes are cut from the new metallic paper in the Annual Inspirations catalog. It is nice and thick, yet cuts easily on the Cricut. The sentiment on the inside is from a retired CTMH stamp set.
I hope you can stop by the BBTB2 blog to see the other design team projects. They are awesome! Then link up your own Word projects for everyone to enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by! Don’t let the little ghouls and goblins get you this week! Laurie
Wow, has the weather been crazy lately! From hurricanes and floods to wild fires and earthquakes, it seems like Mother Nature has been on a rampage! Close To My Heart has created a special stamp set called Stronger Together as a fundraiser for victims of these recent natural disasters. One hundred percent of the proceeds of this exclusive stamp set goes to the Red Cross to help victims of these disasters across the U.S. Take a look at the great sentiments on this amazing stamp set!
I just got my stamp set a couple of days ago and had to use it right away! I made a pop up box card and used one of the sentiments as a focal point for the front of the card. I also used the new leaf embossing folder on gold metallic paper to make a decorative border on the sides of the card. The paper is from the Falling For You collection.
If you would like to help with the disaster relief with a donation to the Red Cross, please consider purchasing one of the Stronger Together (C1716) stamp sets. I’m sure you will get lots of use from the awesome sentiments on this set. The cost is only $13.95 and 100% of the proceeds (no commission for consultants) is donated to the Red Cross. Shop HERE to get Stronger Together. Thanks so much for your donation! Laurie
Our challenge at Heart 2 Heart this week is to create a project with Negative Space. I decided to make a boy’s birthday card with an “all star” theme. I pulled some Close To My Heart images into Design Space and started ungrouping, slicing and regrouping until I had what I thought would work for my card.
The papers are from the Adventure paper collection. I used a retired “happy birthday” sentiment and retired white enamel stars to embellish the card.
Stop over to Heart 2 Heart to see the other design team projects and then link up your own projects with Negative Space. We love it when you share your talents!
Thanks for stopping by today! I sure hope you and your loved ones are safe from all the crazy natural disasters brewing the world. Selfishly I’m so relieved it looks like Irma will miss my son and his family in the Florida panhandle. But my prayers are certainly with all the other Floridians who are not so lucky.
Close To My Heart has created a special stamp set called Stronger Together and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross to help with ALL the recent disasters. If you would like to purchase one of these sets, you can shop HERE. Every little bit helps!!
Today I’m excited to share my June Layout Workshop using the fabulous No Worries paper collection by Close To My Heart! This paper has me smitten! It’s just perfect for all your beach, cruise or family vacation photos, but is certainly not limited to those events. I can see using No Worries for Father’s Day or other masculine photos too.
These layouts were created with the No Worries Workshop Your Way kit. This kit includes a No Worries paper pack, Complements, sequins, burlap ribbon and 4 pieces of White Daisy cardstock. If you purchase this kit for $26.95 from my online shopping site, I will send you photos and directions to make these 3 layouts.
You can also attend a workshop in my home on Friday evening, June 23 or Saturday afternoon, June 24 to create these layouts or I can mail you a kit so you can assemble them at home. Cost will be $30.00 (postage extra). Let me know how I can help! Laurie
I LOVE Thin Cuts! And I’m so happy they are on sale this month at Close To My Heart! That’s right, all Thin Cuts are 25% off only this month, so don’t miss out on your chance to snag a few of these awesome goodies!
I thought it would be fun to try some variations on using those fabulous Thin Cuts besides just cutting and using the images. Every time you cut, there is also a negative space cut and that’s what I concentrated on for these cards.
