Paper Purses

Decided to jump on the paper purse bandwagon.  I wasn't a fan of pocket letters, so ---

The papers I used were Graphic 45 Typography.  I used MayMay's tutorial from YouTube. 

This is the link:

There are some other tutorials for the Cricut Explore that I will try, but since this tutorial is pretty much a 12 x 12 sheet of paper and some scraps for embellishments I thought I would give it a whirl.

Had a lot of fun making these and the possibilities for these are endless.  Mother's Day, Teacher gifts, etc.

Hope you have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.

Product Review- CTMH Stamps and Dies Nautical Card

I recently went to a 4-day crop and one of the attendees is a Close to My Heart consultant.  I ordered the My Anchor thin cut dies and matching stamps.

The dies are very good quality and well, we all know that the stamps are wonderful.  I used Carta Bella paper from the Ahoy There collection.  I don't know how old it is but is it beautiful paper.  The paper is very thick and the dies worked well.

Living in South Florida I thought these dies and stamps will come in very handy.

Have a great day-- make it a crafty one.

Valentine's Day Layout Swap

This is a layout for our Cricut Crazy group swap.  This month's theme was Valentine's day.

We had to include a variety of items i.e., border, tags, sentiment, photo mats, etc.  There are some other small embellishments not shown that I used from the negative of the die cuts.

All the die cuts are from Cricut's Design Space and I used the Cricut Explore to cut them.

The paper I used is from DCWV and it is called Cranberry Christmas  I love it when you can use Christmas paper throughout the year.

If you are interested in this group it is on Facebook and its called Cricut Crazy Swaps and RAKS.

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.

Silent Night Bendy Card from Dreaming Tree/

I was a little intimidated to a make this card.  Thank you to Dreaming Tree for your videos on how to put the cards together.

You can't really tell from the picture but the paper is white/pearly/shiny paper.

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.

EOS Holders

I used my Cricut Explore to cut all of these.  Some were from Cricut cartridges and some were SVG files I found on-line.

Love Love Love these.

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.
