12/29/12 SNOW!

I think we have around 10-12 inches here.  This is a picture of our deck when I let Tucker out this morning.

12/29/12 Jelly roll quilt

I bought a "jelly roll" at a discount store but I didn't know what to do with it.  I saw this quilt in a quilt shop.  It's called the "jelly roll 1600 quilt".  If you are interested in learning how to do it, search it on you tube.  There are some great videos on there.  Let me know if you are making one and I will email you my "helpful hints".  It's fast but I did run in to a few snafoos.

12/19/12 Christmas thank you cards

For my neighbors.

9/12/12 I"m back!

I haven't posted in lime a month!  I have a lot to share...I just finally got my pictures downloaded today and had time to play on my blog.

9/12/12 A little bag of lavender

I helped a girlfriend get these ready for a church bazaar.  I made the tags with the cricut and stamped it with a little flower.
Tied with raffia....smells wonderful!

I just got the ARTISTE cricut cartridge!

Had to make a quick card for Grandparents day.  I love how this turned out!  This is 100% cricut...found only on CTMH Artiste cartridge!

9/12/12 Sympathy cards

I know a large family that just lost their nephew/son/grandson in a car accident.
I saw this card on pinterest (as a birthday card) and I just had to copy it.
It's a great stamp set and this is a great way to get alot of cards done in one day...just change the sentiment and you can have a whole set!

Flower is from "Card chatter"...sentiment is from "4 my friend"

9/12/12 Pet sympathy card

I had a paw print die for my cuttlebug and I cut the "X O" out with my cricut.
I think it's adorable....

Would also be a good "Happy birthday from the dog" card.

9/12/12 Wine bottle labels

I cut the cardstock 5x12 and decorated them using the stamp set ""Magic Potions".
Paper pack I used is called "moonlight".
Then I put double sided sticky tape at one edge and wrap it around your bottle and stick the edges together.
Great Fall gift!

9/12/12 Bountiful season

This is copied (somewhat) from the Fall/winter Close to my heart catalog p85

4/24/12 Dotty for you

This months campaign is so wonderful. Its called "Dotty for You" and it's a huge paperpack that's only $5 when you spend $35. The campaign goes thru May. Click here is you want to shop! www.sholmes.myctmh.com
This card was "cased" from my CTMH sister Ginny Lucaites.
This great paper pack also comes with ideas. This card is made based on the picture that came with the packet.
This card is made with the chipboard and stamps that comes with our "Art Philosophy" cartridge. The idea for this card came from CTMH sister Randi Lewis. Seriously---I don't know of anyone that has really bought from me just from reading my blog but if you have $40 to spend this month on crafts, this is what it should be. You can do your Easter layouts, Mother's day cards and then flip the paper over and make Father's Day cards. (The back sides have lots of gray, orange and greens) This paper pack will get me thru the Spring no problem and into my summer layouts also. I just can't say enough about it!!!
