Getting ready for my CHRISTmas pictures!

This is just a quicky CHRISTmas layout that I did using some paper piecings in preparation for my many CHRISTmas pictures.  It is not all CTMH but was a lot of fun none the less.  What do you thin?

Wonderland Layout

I love the Wonderland Level 2 paper pack and couldn't wait to make a winter layout.  I added lots of bling brads and sparkles along with the icing overlays. Now I just need some good snow pictures!

Merry CHRISTmas!! Here are some stocking stuffers I made...

Merry Christmas to everyone!  I wish you all health, happiness and prosperity in the coming year.  I made my girls a set of stationary for their stocking and decorated these Close To My Heart card boxes for them.  I used one of my favorites, Roxie, and the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge for the embellishments.  I will be posting the stationary I made for them in soon.

Happy Holidays to All!

Well, I wanted to make one more Christmas card and just could not pass on this beauty from the CTMH Winter Idea Book.  It uses the December 25th (C1469) stamp set and you guessed correctly, the fabulous Cricut cartridge.  Now that I have finished all of my Christmas cards and gifts, I get to play with some layouts to preserve my family memories this year. 
I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Believe Christmas card

This is the 3rd of 4 Christmas cards I made this year for family and friends.  It is also another quick and easy card I made with the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and the coordinating stamp set, Holiday Cheer (B1381).  The  Christmas tree came from the Tannenbaum (B1361) stamp set and the cheery paper is Believe level 2 (X7145B).  I added the bling buttons and pin from the Bling Assortment (Z1466) and Shimmer Brads (Z1349) to finish off this fun card!!

This melt your heart card was made with one of the many stamp sets, Snowflakes (D1480), that coordinates with the cutouts from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  The coordinating cutouts and stamps make putting together beautiful cards quick and easy! If you haven't treated yourself to the Art Philosophy bundle then remember, it is gift giving time so let someone special know that this is on your wish list and give them my contact information.  Santa Denise still has time to deliver before Christmas. Or, hehehe - reward yourself!

A Christmas Gift For My Monthly Girls!

I love to thank my monthly girls at our December meeting with a little hand crafted item.  When I needed a quick idea, I headed straight to the Close To My Heart Idea book and found this cute little carton.  I cut it with my cricuit and Art Philosophy cartridge and in no time at all, I had 10 gifts ready!  Thank you to my wonderful girls and thank you CTMH for making things so easy for me!  If you don't have an Idea Book, please let me know and I will hook you up!
