Moonlight Paper Boxes

I LOVE these little boxes. They are perfect for decorating... these have a Halloween theme.
Cut out with the Cricut Artiste cartridge. 
Then assemble with a little glue. Super fast and easy.

I used the Magic Potions stamp set with Smokey Plum ink. 
Added a little black ribbon, Cricut Artiste paper flowers and bling.

Cruisin' Card Set with Card Holder

I have a ton of this Cruisin' paper from Close To My Heart
that has been retired, but I still love it! 
I wanted to try out some of my new stamp sets that coordinate with the new
Cricut Artiste cartridge. I used Kudos that comes with the cartridge and Perfect Fit Frames. 

I cut the shapes out on the Cricut using white cardstalk, 
then used Cranberry ink to stamp the images on the cut shapes.

The card holder is one of the 100's of 3D items on the Artiste cartridge.

September... National Stamping Month

Roses, Diamonds and Burlap

I love love love shabby chic...
 and what is more shabby then burlap? Or more chic then roses and diamond?

I used a Close To My Heart Card Box and the Moonlight Paper Pack
I added shabbiness with the all important Edge Distresser and ink. 

3D flowers were cut out of colonial white cardstalk with the Cricut Artiste and inked along the edges.

Everything was attached with Liquid Glass (my all time favorite) and blinged up!

So very shabby and yet so chic.

The front burlap tag can also hold a pen. 

I sponged this idea from Theresa Black.

It's a Girl

A good friend of mine is going to be a grandma! 
I missed the baby shower because I was at the Grand Canyon.
While there I found these cute cowboy boot socks.
 They are decorating the nursery in owls..... I LOVE owls and have the perfect paper with owls on it.
which has some of the cutest 3D items... I made the sweet purse with a bow.
Moonlight Paper Pack from Close To My Heart

Sweet little Cowboy boot socks.

This bow is so simple to make, and comes out so fabulous.

Velcro to keep it closed.

It's a BOY!!!

We just found out that my niece and her husband are having a baby boy. I wanted to make them a special card, and of course wanted to break out my new Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge.
I know diapers aren't the most original shape for a baby card... but how cute?
