Tiana's Wedding Album

 I've been working on my Niece's wedding album.  Most of the paper is GCD Paris Nights.  Many of the swirls and tags are cut using the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  And, there are numerous scraps from the ever-growing embellishment heap in my scrap room.

 I love the black swirls and the "time to celebrate" tags.  The swirls were cut from black glitter paper using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge.  The paper is thick and sturdy and the cuts are perfect.

 The swirls were stamped from a now-retired CTMH stamp.  See the dress form in the bottom right hand corner?  That was cut from using the CTMH Artiste cartridge.  I think that new cartridge will get a lot of use.  The butterfly wings behind the dress form was stamped using the CTMH Find Your Style stamp.  That may be all-time favorite stamp.

 All of the letters were cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge.

The border punch is EK success - I like how it goes with the paper.  I made a few other pages, but I think these were my favorite.

Happy Crafting!


CTMH Display Album

I made this for a friend to display pictures of her ADORABLE grandchildren and children.  There are 24 pages (12 front and back) plus the covers and a handful of tags, so there should be adequate space for lots of pictures.

Too many papers and stamps to list, but most supplies are CTMH and most cuts are from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  Email me if you have questions about a specific paper, stamp or tool.


Pemberley Boxed Cards

This heat has me crafting.  These cards were all made from CTMH paper pack, Pemberley and an assortment of stamps.  Most of the cuts were made using the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  The flowers on the box take less than a minute to make.  I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this about a million times, but I LOVE the Art Philosophy cartridge. The sunflowers and leaves are from May's stamp of the month - Friendship Bouquet.  I didn't think I'd ever use that stamp so I didn't buy it.  My sister did and I've borrowed it from her about a dozen times.

 Love this butterfly!  I cut it using the Art philosophy cartridge.  I also used the cartridge for the circles, scalloped circles and the scallop on the corner.

 The flowers are CTMH - Card Word Puzzle.  Isn't the frame fun?  Another Art Philosophy cut.
The frames, flowers, leaves are all Art Philosophy cuts.


Dreams Paperbag Album


Who can resist the wonderful, crunchy feel of a paper bag album?  For this one I used the black paper bags from Micheal's.   They're a tad sturdier than the usual, making them well worth the price. 

The paper pack and Stickease are CTMH Wings - retired, because I ALWAYS discover a wonderful paper right after it's retired.  I also used the CTMH "Find Your Style" stamp set throughout.  The tags were cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge.

Happy Crafting!


Typeset Mini Album "School Days"

Yet another mini-album inspired the really cool mini albums created by the Fabulously Artsy, Tresa Black.  I've never used all the elements she teachers in her mini-album tutorials.   It takes me forever to finish a project, so I just work at it until it isn't fun anymore and then I quit.

I LOVE this Typeset paper from Close To My Heart.  The "Stickers" that go with the set are canvas - makes the album rich with texture.  I've already made about twenty cards with this paper and I'm still not tired of it.

Happy Crafting!


Baby Mini-Album

Here's my most recent baby girl album.  Pretty similar to the last one I did, which follows Tresa Black's tutorial on Fabulously Artsy.  Another opportunity to use up bits of leftover materials and make a gift for a new parent.

I tried to include tags and pockets for journaling and stuffing little mementos.

I used the CTMH My Creations 3-Ring binder album.  It is retired, however, I bought about 20 of them from the CTMH clearance sale.  Twenty.  What was I thinking?

Happy Crafting!
