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!

Thanks for looking!!

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!!

This is going to one of my sons Favorite teachers!

I used the sketch Challenge off of the heart2heart blog for this layout. ( I used Close to my heart paper, stamps, and embellishments. The "trinity" alphabet stamp set used for the title and the numbers in the 3, 2 ,1 banners. And the "Blue Ribbon" stamp set for the star and ribbon. Chipboard elements, waxy flax and the CTMH Cricut cartridge used as well. It came together fairly easy and I love the sketch!!

Christmas Wreath

I used a Vicki Wizniuks card for inspiration for this card. You should visit her blog!!

The Paper is retired but well loved by CTMH. The wreath is an AWESOME set called "Remarkable Wreath" from CTMH. I used the CTMH cricut cartridge to cut out the scallops.

This is duplicate but using the stamp set called Christmas Melodies. I am loving the put a brad in the middle of a bow!! I think it makes a nice touch don't you?
