Sonoma Bookmark

I made a Christmas bookmark using the instructions from Dawns' Stamping Thoughts blog here:
It uses ribbon and a rubber band that is behind the scallop accent.

I used the Sonoma paper collection again. I am so glad CTMH is keeping it in the next catty!! Which will be live in February. MORE to come on that!!

I used the CTMH Cricut cartridge to cut out the scallops and circles and the flower as my accent for the bookmark. I am actually using this book mark now!

Close to my heart Art Philosophy in Action!

I made this super cute "Fry box" with Thank you cards from the CTMH cricut cartridge.

The paper I used is the CTMH Sonoma paper. Love the elegance and softness of this paper pack. I used the CTMH cricut cartridge to cut the fry box, the flowers, the vines & Leaves. I also cut out the "Thank you" frames with the cricut and used the Say it in Style stamp set. Scallop is cut out with AP cartridge as well.

Embellishments are Mocha pearls, Just Blooms butterflies, waxy flax and the awesome thick Chocolate Grossgrain ribbon. Thanks for looking!!

Lilly and Dom


I used Close to my hearts Paper Packet Mayberry. "Lilly" is spelled with CTMH Dimensional Alphabets. Since they were blowing bubbles this too cute image of a girl blowing bubbles from "Sparkle Creations" was a perfect addition to the page. I colored her in matching colors and she even looks a wee bit like my neice Lilly that is in the layout. I colored white Thicker stickers (Dominic) with CTMH green ink to match the layout. Twine to match added as well.
