Card Gift Set

As I was wandering around Pinterest, just looking for a few minutes... yea right, more like an hour, I ran across a few great inspiration pieces. The first is this easy to make card box.

The tutorial can be found at Fabulously Artsy

The flower is from Cricut Flower Shoppe Cartridge

Here are the cards I put in it.

The cuts are from Close To My Heart Art Philosophy, the stamps are from Close To My Heart and SU.

I'm sorry about the poor photos of the cards. I was rushing out the door to the birthday party they were for, when I realized I hadn't taken any pictures. 

I love how easy to assemble this box is . I will be making more of these for sure !

As always, thanks for stopping in :)

Crafty Organizing

I just love when I can combine my crafting and organizing into one project. I have been accumulating a lot of extra Cricut cuts and putting them in a boring old envelope. So when Crafty Organizing was chosen for the theme this week at SweetSassyDiva , I decided to make something fun, useful and decorative to store them in.

 I started by making the inside pocket pages using a piece of 12 x 12 " paper. Score and fold as shown on the photos.

I used my Bind It All to put this book together.

The cover is just a light weight chipboard covered with black card stock.

I used Cricut Craft Room to size and cut out the image and phrase -  from Cricut Everyday sized at 3".

I wanted to be able sort the cuts by theme, so I cut out tabs from From My Kitchen to attach to each page.

I wrote on the labels then attached with a strong adhesive.

And the finished book... with a few embellishments.

Cartridges used:

Cricut Everyday
From My Kitchen

This was a fun project make and can be changed up in lots of ways to fit other needs. Please come back this week and see some more great crafty organizing projects!

A Grandparent is..

very proud!!! I am lucky to have 2 wonderful grandkids. As you will see in my layout, they both have a huge smile and are full of fun.
Hi everyone, I'm bringing you my 3rd layout. It's for this weeks SweetSassyDiva's theme - A Grandparent is.... I told my daughter that it is much easier to do these when you have great pictures !

I started with my Gypsy and Cricut Alphabet to make my letters. I put circles sized at 1 inch on my mat then added the letters inside... sized at .52. I grouped the circle and letter together and cut out. I then added more 1 inch circles and cut them out in brown to go behind the cream letter circles.

I inked all the edges with brown then arranged and attached. The sticker is from Close To My Heart.

It's so easy to love a project that has pictures of my wonderful grandkids :) 

As always, thanks for stopping by :)

This is the easiest theme we've had so far at SweetSassy Diva! Who doesn't LOVE to add glitter to a project?

 I got the original instructions from SplitcoastStampers.

I started by cutting my flowers from the Art Philosophy cartridge, pages 29 & 57. I stamped them with the corresponding Close To My Heart set Hooray Bouquet ( D1491).

Then I cut my cardstock and patterned paper as shown on the photos.

Glitter was added to the bird, flower and the dots of the I's.

I hope you enjoyed this glittery theme and as always, thanks for stopping by :)
