Make*It*Crafty* Seasonal Blog Hop - Christmas/Winter Creations

Welcome to the 2nd Make It Crafty Seasonal Blog Hop where Close to my Heart Consultants create what our heart desires and post it on our blog.  If you have arrived from The Scrap Zone (Julie Carriere) you are on the right path!!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost, you'll find the complete list of participating consultants here.

This month we are showcasing Christmas or Winter creations.  I have created these two cards using the Close to my Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge.

Here is the inside of the Christmas Cheer card.
I saw Lisa Stenz' take on this card and loved it.  I changed it up by using the Artist Cartridge image of Poinsetta leaves.

Here is material list:
Artfully Sent Cartridge
Green Glitter Paper
Green & Blue Epoxy Bubbles
Cranberry CS
White Daisy CS

Here is another Artfully Sent card, very simple to make.

Black/Grey Glitter Paper
Cranberry CS
Cranberry Chevron Ribbon

Thank you so much for following along on our Blog Hop today! I hope you enjoyed all the lovely artwork... Now it's time to head on over to Pam's Blog and see her artwork. Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas. Look for our next Blog Hop where we will feature beautiful "Valentine or Card" projects, see you soon.

November Stamp of the Month - It's the Little Things

I was part of a Stamp of the Month Swap with a few other area Close to my Heart consultants and I had to use the November stamp, It's the Little Things.

Here is a double page layout I made.

LOTS of fussy cutting but the results makes it all worth it.
