Noel Christmas Tunes Card

Noel Christmas Tunes Card

Have another guest artist from our Holiday Swap.  Valerie Jackson did a great job with the October Stamp of the Month – S1710 Christmas Tunes.  There are few different cards posted in the FB group showing how to use this stamp set.  I recreated the card:

 

 

Supplies needed to make:

Dimensions:

  • Black Cardstock – 5.5″x4.25″
  • Cranberry Cardstock – 5.25″ x 4.0″
  • White Daisy Cardstock – 5.0″ x 3.75″
  • Silver and Gold B&T of your choice – cut the same as the White Daisy.  Cut diagonally and adhere the bottom part of the White Daisy.

Directions:

  • Put the gold shimmer trim on the White Daisy panel before you put it on the card.
  • Stamp the image on the donut cricut cut.
  • Color in the berries and leaves with the Shin Touch markers.
  • Adhere the stamped piece to the wreath Cricut cut.
  • Add the bows.
  • Using 3D foam tape, pop up the wreath over the center of the card.  The gold shimmer trim should show through the center of the donut.
  • Add sequins.
  • Use the Stickles to accent over the colored berries, leaves, and in the center of the sequins.

This card is fast and would make a great Christmas card to make in bulk.  Fun elements without being work intensive.

Hip Hip Hooray!

Hip Hip Hooray!

My friend, Mary,  from Cardz TV, created this awesome card with the CTMH You Are Here Cricut Cartridge!  Check it out.

This is my version of the card:

I created a design space file (hooray for this) for the card. https://design.cricut.com/#/design/71684812  

I used scraps to create this card.  No Worries paper (retired) and a birthday stamp set from CTMH that’s long retire but I love all the different sentiments so I’ve held on to it.  The hill is cut from a Lawn Fawn die.  The Cricut Cartridges are You Are Here and Wild Card.  The silver marker from CTMH’s Gold and Silver pens made the hubcaps, fenders, and handle.  Black Memento ink pad was used for stamping and the Heather ink pad for distressing the edges of the cloud and circle.

I’ll be Home…..

I’ll Be Home….

It seems very strange to be talking about Christmas right now but it’s only 2.5 months away!  Here’s a layout I created to be able to get working on getting some pages done. I made this for a team challenge that I gave to create something Christmas with the new “You Are Here” cartridge!  =)

You can only get the physical cartridge until we run out.  The other three add-ons are digital only.  I love that you get a full pack of our cardstock, which is now two toned.

The treas that have have what looks like the white overlay, are actually done in white glitter paper.   On the tree with the yellow star, I used Shimmer Brush to add some sparkle to it.

This house is so cute and one of two houses on the cartridge.  The white glitter paper give the illusion of snow.  I crossed the one set of trees to over lap the pages.  Put on the left side.  Trim.  Match up the pages and glue the remaining piece on to the left side.

The heart on the door shows love and going home for Christmas is exciting when you get to see friends and family who you haven’t seen for a bit.

To make this, you need:

Tick Tock….it’s almost over! Do you have your entry?

Tick Tock…it’s almost over!! Do you have your entry?

 

Today is the last day and actually, we are into the last few hours of the Great Cricut Giveaway!!  Here’s my update:

I have the most amazing team and customers!!  We started this month off with 8800 points and we are over half way there.  I realize that with only 10 more hours to go, that it’s tough goal to reach, but I’m still working on it, sick and all.  82 more $50.00 orders to go (although ANY order helps out).  I need to do tallies and we may be at another $100 shopping spree!!  I just loving giving away things.  I know we’ll have a few other things to give away as well! I’m working on tallying up where we are at.  Super excited to have all these things to give away.   End goal??  I’d really love to do a random drawing for a Cricut Air 2 if we reach the 39000 mark!!

Mary from CardzTV:

I’ve recently partnered up with Mary from CardzTV.  If you don’t subscribe to this YouTube channel, you should.  She makes amazing cards and provides great tutorials.  Here’s her first tutorial on the CTMH You are Here Cartridge!!

I just love watching other people use CTMH products with other crafting products.  It really shows how versatile CTMH products are and how anyone can add them to their collection and use them with what you have!  There is no need to be exclusive to any one product.  If you order this today, the physical cartridge, you’ll get two entries to win a Cricut Air 2!

Speaking of the physical cartridge, it’s very important to let you know that Cricut is phasing out all physical cartridges, which makes me very sad.  So if you are operating on the earlier Circuts and are not using Design Space, you’ll need to get your physical cartridges from CTMH before they run out.  You can check and see which ones you can get here:

Enjoy The Little Things and Blog Candy

Enjoy The Little Things and Blog Candy

This layout is created with the Falling For You and  Cats and Bats paper packs and the Enchantment Color Palette Cardstock with a few of the Basic colors thrown in.  All the Cricut cuts are from current CTMH Cricut Cartridges.   No stamping this go around but I reserve the right to add some later.  If I do, I’ll share what I do.  The layout design was inspired by Ms. Carrie when I saw her layout posted.   I did change a few things around.

All of the triangles are either 2″x 2″ or 3″ x 3″ squares cut in half, corner to corner.  I created the borders around the pictures with them.  The leaves come from 3 different Cricut Cartridges.   The coffee cups and  sentiment “Enjoy the Little Things” come from the new Cricut You are Here.  Jeff and I love to visit different coffee shops, just to check things out.  We found a cute little one and we have some pictures of this.  I can’t wait to add them.  The rich colors from the Enchantment palette help make this page work.

Layer the leaves in the corner and put the coffee cup on top with 3D foam tape.  Use the gold shimmer brush on the title, “Coffee” (Artbooking alphabet).

Continue to layer the leaves around the sentiment.  Pop the sentiment up on 3D foam tape.  Use your Gold Shimmer Pen to color in the “Enjoy”.

You’ll need the following to create this:

Falling For You

Falling For You

The CTMH Special of the month is this awesome kit, From The Heart.  You can make these beautiful, elegant cards with the kit.  You can purchase additional card bases as well.  Best of all – no cutting – if you follow the kit!  Of course, as you can see above, I want rouge!

Still playing in the Fall 2017 Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop, I used the base of the kit to create this card.  The Falling For You paper pack works perfectly for this card and the blog hop.  The cute foxes and sentiments are from Sugar Pea Designs and they have matching dies to make your life a little easier.   The cuts are from a variety of CTMH exclusive Cricut Cartridges!

This is an interactive card so you pull the top and it opens up the bottom to share the “inside” of the card!  Too much fun, right?  You need the following products to create this card:

I wanted to create the look of things falling, like leaves, from the first sentiment.  These foxes are just too darn cute!  Pumpkin Spice Latte is my favorite fall drink so I had to have this stamp set.  I cut all the images from CTMH Cricut Cartridges.  It’s so easy to share the file with you all!

Because there are so many pieces to this card, I held off from adding other embellishments and used a shimmer brush as well as a gold gel pen for the buttons on the jacket and a green gel pen on the leaves.

First day of school

First day of school

Today is Sarah Grace’s first day of third grade!  Time has just flown by.  It’s hard to believe she’s starting her fourth year of school.  As with tradition, there’s the first day of school picture:


Always have to do something for the teachers.  Their marathon has just begun.   Here’s the “Welcome Back to School” gifts for the teachers:


Jeff made these awesome cookies for the teachers.  He is the best baker and I’m so glad he could do that while I made bag toppers for the Ziplock bags. Adding toppers dresses the bag up and is fun to because you can personalize the bag as well as show what occasions it’s for.

Here’s the design space file for this:  https://design.cricut.com/#/design/68070047

Basic directions:

  • The base of the topper is 7.5″ x 6″ and cut from Sapphire cardstock.
  • Score at the 3″ mark on the 6″ side and fold in half.
  • Cut a piece of White Daisy cardstock 2.5″ x 5.5″ and glued to the base.
  • Cut the Design Space file above out using the colors as you desire.

After creating these, we attached a card to the back of the topper with a “Welcome Back” note to thank SG’s teachers for being a part of her teaching team for the next year.  Teaching is hard work and we appreciate their efforts.  We also want them to know they can contact us for any reason, whether they need classroom supplies or otherwise.

You are Here – Acadia – Design Space File

You are Here – Acadia – Design Space File

This is the first of many layouts for this summer’s road trip.  I’m using a combination of the new Basic Color Palette (10 new nummy colors that are two toned) and Jack, the featured paper pack of the month.  The brown is called Espresso.  I did a FB live in my customer group showing the difference between the two sides.

 Designing this layout:

I designed the layout in Design Space.  The pattern is from our new “Make It From You Heart Vol 3” pattern book which is all scrapbooking layouts.  I used Patter 20.   I did change some things on the pattern to accommodate my needs – making mats for the 3×4 pictures, putting spaces between the  photo wells, and creating a journal block the way I did.  Even though I could have the Cricut Explorer cut all the pieces, I do not do this.  Cut all the squares/rectangle shapes from my cutter.   Here is the file for Design Space:

https://design.cricut.com/#/design/66765498

You will need to purchase the CTMH Cricut Collection “You Are Here” to use the images.  This cartridge is a worth while investment because its got 700 images between the fonts and the images.  It’s all about traveling and significant events.  Learn more about the cartridge here.

The font offers you the option to have the letters all bold and thicker, like the capitol letters on my title, or to have the letters normal.  I like this font as it’s clean and easy to read.   There are several National Park emblem on this cartridge (now hoping for them to do a cartridge with the rest of the State Parks).

Hashtags are in and this is a good one.  Our theme for the summer has been to be outside so this rocks.

You’ll use this image over and over for your pages. We always need to date things.  “Vacation Date” looks good and it’s so much nicer then just writing the date somewhere in the journaling or on the page.

Here, you cut the “windy road” sign, in half, and put each side on the respective page to make it look like it’s overlapping.  Having overlapping features help the reader’s eyes flow across the page and build continuity.

Flip Flaps

If you scrap with me at all, you know I love using flip flaps to fit more pictures into the layout and that I try to put one event between two pages no matter what.  Using 3″x4″ flip flaps and adding a mat that is 1/2 of an inch bigger, I will build some books on this layout of the pictures.

 

Jack:

So where’s Jack in all of this?  Jack is the background paper behind the title.  This is actually from the Picture My Life cards that are available to cut up from two of the sheets in the paper pack.  I used two more Picture My Life cards to create the journal block.  The little strip under the Cranberry piece on both pages is called the “zip strip” from the top of the pages.  It’s the 1/2 inch you cut off.  Once side has the name of the paper and matching colors on it.  The backside of all the zip strips on the CTMH papers is usable as you see here.  Jack retires on August 31!  Not much time left to buy it!
