Birthday Queen

I saw a VERY expensive card in an airport this summer just like this.  I knew I could recreate it with the Cricut.  When we came out with glitter paper I just HAD to try it.  The Tiara was cut at 1/2 inch from page 69 of the Artiste cartridge.  The star is cut at 1/2 inch also from page 40 of the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I blinged it up with pink and purple sparkles. I colored the star with the  Ruby marker.  The inside of the purple card says "May your reign never end!" and the pink card says "Rule your day!".

Want your own glitter paper?  You can get it with the National Papercrafting Month kit - Whooo’s Your Valentine .  Click HERE to order.

Cards inspired from the new idea book

There is a new CTMH idea book!  You can start ordering from it on January 1st.  These are some cards I made with inspiration from page 124.  I used the "Whooo's your Valentine" stamp set, some shimmer tape, color ready seam binding ribbon and even some of the new mini pigment ink pads.

Masculine Cards

I needed a couple of masculine cards.  One for my nephew who is in the Army and one for a friend turning 60.  I thought the Victory paper packet would do for both.  Victory is retiring at the end of January.  I never bought the actually paper packet just the samples - one of the perks of being a consultant.  Using a couple of patterns from the Originals card book I made these two cards.

Remember if you place an order on my web site during the month of December for $50 or more you will receive a FREE  Bonding Memories Glue Pen.  PLUS you can get the December Stamp of the Month for only $5.00.

More Scrabble tile ornaments

I think I'm finally done making Scrabble tile Christmas ornaments.  

These tiles are almost done.  The I  HEART U ornament used a blank tile with a small red heart covered in prisma glitter. I'll connect the XO to it with red ribbon.  I'll add some white tule to my sister's name and some glitter ribbon to the NOEL to finish them off.
