Fall Beauty Wreath

Last week you saw my son’s flowers.  This week you get to see my 3-D flower project.  I love how it turned out.  The roses were simple to make and


Everything was cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, roses, pennant pieces, letters. The paper is from the Dreamin Paper Pack.

If you’re interested in making it, let me know.  I am putting in order on Friday night, I can order the supplies for you without charging double shipping.  It would be $12 and you’ll get a bottle of Glitz Glitter Gel & a whole package of chipboard elements for future projects and all the items cut out for you.  (Wreath not included).  Materials for 2 wreaths would be $15.50 as you’ll be able to use the same chipboard package and the glitz.  I’ll ship it for $2 more. 

Contact me to place an order or schedule a workshop at your home with your friends to make this wreath.

Hello October

There’s only a few minutes left of September.  It’s been a busy month, with a vacation, the whole family having colds and kicking off home schooling a kindergartener.  I’ve had to burn the midnight oil to play with my pretty papers and stamps lately. 
The other night, I was invited to help out and be a designer to dress up one of Kristi’s newest releases, “Holiday Card Fronts.”  I created this card using the CTMH Believe paper pack, the October SOTM and a few other items that I had.  It was a fun little adventure and am pleased how this turned out.  (I probably could easily recreate it using Art Philosophy too!)
Close to My Heart’s Stamp of the Month program has been fabulous this year.  They’re now releasing the stamps 2 months before the holiday so you have time to make cards!  Hence the reason that we had Halloween’s Wicked in August.  Our love stamps will be in December! 
This stamp set is so versatile & fun.  I only stamped the sentiment here.  I can’t wait to show you more projects throughout the month.  It is available for only $5 with a $50 purchase or $17.95.  2011OctSOTMS1110 stamp
