Believe Board Book

This is a My Creations® Board Book that I quickly put together using only one of the Believe two-sided papers (using a little of the plaid and a lot of the stripes!), along with some cardstock.  I also used some Sweet Leaf paper from the Wings collection (retired) - it's the distressed looking green paper - gotta use up the old stash! 

I used minimal embellishments wanting to keep the book as flat as possible!  I used the Cricut® Art Philosphy cartridge for the tag on the front cover as well as for the ornaments and trees on the inside pages.  I used the coordinating Art Philosophy stamp for the trees as well.  I made this album for my niece's son - for his first Christmas!  Hope you like it!

Supplies are all CTMH unless otherwise specified:

Paper:  Believe B&Ts, Wings B&Ts, Holiday Red, Sweet Leaf and White Daisy cardstock
Stamps:  Believe WOTG, Art Philosophy Seasons, Just for the Holidays
Ink:  Holiday Red, Sweet Leaf
Other:  Sweet Leaf Ribbon, My Stickease (reindeer), Sweet Leaf and cranberry brads, red gems (unknown), Baker's Twine (We R Memory Keepers), 3D Foam Tape
Font: CK Man's Print


December Stamp of the Month (SOTM)

The November SOTM is "Mad About You".  Four of the stamps coordinate with images from the Cricut® Art Philosphy cartridge, but even if you don't own a Cricut® or have this CTMH exclusive cartridge the stamp set is fantastic!  Remember, with any $50.00 order, the SOTM is on $5.00.  For complete details visit my Close To My Heart website.

More Wonderland Cards

Here are a few more Wonderland cards.  The left and right cards were designed by Kandi.  I used a different color ink for each of the large snowflakes; can't decide which I like better!  To make these cards start with a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock.  Score at 2 1/4" and 5 1/2".  Then add whatever patterned paper you like!  Although my pic doesn't show it, the inside of the cards have the blue argyle paper too!  The middle card is my version of this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Dreamin' 2-page Family Layout

I saw this layout on Jeanette Lynton's blog and just had to lift it.  I made only minor changes.  I may go back and add a little more to the title "Family"; maybe some flourishes!  The flowers and tags were made with the exclusive CTMH Cricut® Art Philosophy Cartridge.  Really fun!  Thanksgiving Day photos will go on this layout.  The photo sizes that I'll use will be 5x5" and 3x3".  The tags can be used for journaling all the things we are so thankful for.  I had a little trouble with editing the pics below, maybe I'll redo them when my tech support is available!

Wonderland Cards

I love this color palette.  Always been a fan of the blues and browns together!  I made these three cards last weekend.  Can hardly wait to play with some of the other papers in the Wonderland packet.  It's hard to tell in the pic but I added some Bitty Sparkles to the wreaths - just a little bling!

Believe - You Warm My Heart

Another card from the Believe paper packet.  This card was designed by Vicki Wizniuk, one of my favorite cardmakers!  All of her work is worth a CASE!  I used the Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge for the cirlce (2 3/4"), scalloped circle (3 1/4") and star (1 3/4") shapes.  The card base is made from a 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" White Daisy cardstock with the fold on the top.  Cute, huh?!

Believe - Cute Santa Card

This is a total CASE!  Mary Rawls, a fellow CTMH consultant, posted this adorable card on her blog and I just fell in love with it!  She rounded the bottom corners on her card - I obviously didn't but it's all her idea!  You can't go wrong with CTMH papers - everything coordinates perfectly!  The Santa stamp is from the Believe Workshop on the Go kit.  You can see complete details for the kit on my CTMH website.
