Two more to share!

I had some time to craft yesterday and here's some of what I came up with.

Layout share!

I've managed to make a few pages over the last week.   
This is an older CTMH kit called Victory, I believe.  I added a few things here and there, all CTMH though, save for the stickers, which are Echo Park.
Bo Bunny paper, chipboard star from my stash, Simple Stories stickers, SU! ribbon.

The background paper here is MME, I think, and the hearts are Cricut.  I found one heart, sized it differently about 20 times, and then welded them all together for one big cut out.  I kept the small inner hearts too and I'll use them somewhere else.  Those are Project Life cards peeking out from under the photo and CTMH embroidered flower and pins.  The pleated ribbon is also CTMH.

Now, the backside of the above patterned paper was just too nice not to use so I found a good set of pictures for it: 

Basic Grey embellies, CTMH ribbon and bottle cap.  I'm glad I got to use both sides of that paper.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving love.  Have a very happy Thanksgiving!

Don't have the right embellishment? Make your own!

This is why I LOVE my Cricut so much.  And one day I hope to LOVE a Silhouette Cameo, too.  :)

I really wanted to document this day at Six Flags with my second cousin and his family when they visited SA a year and a half ago, but I didn't have roller-coaster-themed paper, and Six Flags is the Warner Bros brand but I didn't have any Bugs Bunny paper either (the ride is called Bugs Bunny White Water Rapids).... so I made my own stuff!  The actual roller coaster title is cut from the Summer Celebrations Cricut cartridge; the shield, which mimics the name of the coaster on the picture, is from the Create A Critter cartridge; and all the flourishes are from the Cindy Loo cartridge.  Thickers complete my title.

Also, I should mention that I cut the shield, flourishes, and background of the coaster title from WHITE, and the big 8x8 piece of paper is white too.  On the big 8x8 paper I used a CTMH background stamp so it would match my background PP (which is Little Yellow Bicycle), and I used inks to ink up the other pieces of white.  Finally, I added Stickles to the flourishes to make them appear wet as the ride we were on was also very wet!  OMGoodness it was such fun!  But Nick vowed that he will never.again. ride any roller coaster.  Bummer for him! 

Word stickers are Simple Stories. 
Next, I posted a week or so ago about Nick's baseball season coming to an end and how just one two-page layout was going to cover the whole season.  What's funny about that is I hadn't scrapped LAST YEAR'S baseball pictures.... I just found them buried in a to-do stack!  And my handy dandy Cricut came to the rescue again.  The baseball mitt, though easily available in a variety of stickers at any craft store, is also on my Sports Mania cartridge so I just got the right paper and cut!  The baseball itself is from a sticker pack I bought long ago.  The background brown behind all of my pictures is cut from the Art Philosophy (CTMH) cartridge.  Thickers, Simple Stories stickers, and some chipboard complete my layout. 

Oh and that's yet another Wal-Mart gift card that I used.  :D
Background PP is Bo Bunny.

Happy Birthday!

Some CTMH-only cards. I used Geometric Backgrounds (D1559), Keyboard Uppercase alpha (B1416), Heartfelt Birthday Wish (M1033), and leftover bling and PP from other CTMH projects. 

Thanks for stopping by and leaving love!

Tired of Christmas yet? :) How about some regular cards?

Hello crafty friends,
I used a stamp set from the Holiday Mini catalog, along with a few of the distressed background stamps, to make a few cards.  This is the stamp set (available HERE and only for a limited time):
And I also used some washi tape!  Available (HERE).
Just a few cards... :D
Thanks for looking and leaving love!  Interested in buying more CTMH products?

Gift Bag kit

The CTMH Season's Tweetings Gift Bag Kit is SO darn CUTE!  This is what it looks like: 
It comes with one C-size stamp set, six gift bags (3 of each color, as shown), and nine tags. 
It's available for purchase (HERE).
This is what it looks like once the tags are stamped!  I had FUN making these tags!
This stamp set is going to be used again FOR SURE.  :D  I'm in love with that little owl!
Then I colored them in with my trusty colored pencils.  The owl?  I used some Liquid Applique on that cute Santa hat on Mr. Owl.  The one on the left is before heat embossing for the puffy raised effect, which is visible on the tag on the right. 
I added some Red Glitz Glitter Gel (available HERE) to some of the tags, too.
And these are the finished tags attached to the bags.  You can fit one pound of peanut M&Ms into each bag (that's my very favorite kind of M&M in case you wanted to know!) or maybe a pound of Starbucks coffee, or maybe some Hershey's kisses (to go with the "Christmas Kisses" tag!).  I plan on giving a few of these gift bags to Nick's teacher as well as the school office staff because they are flipping awesome! 
Isn't this just so adorable?  :)
And what's cool is that the very same tags can be cut with my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge so I can use that and this stamp set to make MORE tags!  The bags are available for sale, without the stamp set, in sets of six.  You can see those (HERE).
Thanks for stopping by and leaving love!
Blessings and MERRY EARLY CHRISTMAS!  :)

Only two kits left!

That's right, I only have two of my Christmas card kits left.  You get all the supplies to make eight cards, all you have to do is glue it all down, write something inside, and send out! 

This is what the kit looks like:

The card is stamped on the inside and it comes with envelopes  The tags
and greeting are heat embossed in silver. 

 Your finished card will look like this:
