Woven Basket for Easter

A great little basket that I'm using to present gift cards as Easter gifts. The die does leave embossing to make it look woven. I've been playing around with the Cricut Craft Room lately. The sentiment banner was cut with the Artiste cartridge and the grass is a free cut Easter 2010.

Secret Garden Card

I saw this card recently. I loved it so much that I had to contact my Stampin Up demonstrator to purchase it with the matching framelits. I'm sure I'll be using this stamp set and dies often!

FSS Happy Flowers Card

I love the new design Happy Flowers from Fred, She Said Designs. I printed all of the colors, but choose to use the purple ones first, of course! I also used "A Happy Hello" from the new Uplifting Sentiments.

Get Well FSS Tulip Card

On Monday I got news that a former coworker injured themselves and required surgery. Fred She Said's Tulip Bouquet precolored digital design made this a quick and easy card to make. The tulip and vase are popped with foam tape for some dimension.

Chantilly Cardmaking Kit

Close To My Heart's Workshops On The Go® Chantilly Cardmaking Kit is an excellent way to make 15 beautiful birthday cards. I recently put this kit together and took it to work. Now I have cards stashed at work to quickly give when I have a coworker who is celebrating a birthday.

"Wallet" Birthday Card

How to make a paper wallet? That was my search question this weekend. I found several tutorials online. I choose one and simplified it. I omitted the design elements for credit card slots and just used the basic measurements. I think this needs some tweaking, but it made for an awesome card to give my nephew his birthday cash.

Hippity Hoppity Card

There goes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail! Easter is 4 weeks away!

This darling card was a project I made yesterday at my unit meeting. Stacy, a fellow Close To My Heart consultant, had cut all the pieces from an SVG file she purchased.

Home Sweet Home Frame Project

Today I attended a unit meeting at Joyce's house (my upline). I had a great time crafting with my Close To My Heart friends! This is the project Joyce had for us. It was the first time I used the February Stamp of the Month. I love the sentiment. This project is an awesome idea for gift giving. Just take the glass off an inexpensive frame to put your 3D artwork on display.
