Christmas Block

I have been trying to find a better picture of these but haven’t, so I’m going to post the blurryish one for now.  This is the gift I made for this past Christmas for teachers and such.  They were a huge hit and easy to make.   I used vinyl that I ordered online and the Cricut of course.  The glass blocks were from AC Moore – these particular blocks were discontinued but they have another brand now.  Put a string of 50 lights in the block and some ribbon and adornments and voila!

God Bless America

I am loving this Superhero Paper Pack, but not for superhero items….for America items!  It’s the perfect color combination to do some Patriotic Projects!  Last week, I made a card to give to a lovely woman at my hotel (I am at this hotel every week for work and everyone is always so nice to me) whose husband just left for Officer Boot Camp for the Air Force.  I am really happy with how this card came out!  Hope you like it!  I used the American Celebration Stamp set from CTMH to stamp in two colors for effect.

 

I loved the way this came out so yesterday I made myself a little card box (from CTMH My Creations #Z1647) and again used the Superhero Paper Pack (#X7152B) and American Celebration Stamp Set (#D1458) to make this fabulous little box which I will use to decorate for Memorial Day and July 4th!  It was super easy.  I used Art Philosophy to cut the Star and the little circles to stamp but you could use any adorments if you don’t have Art Philosophy.  Enjoy!

Gathering deal ends 4/27

I am hosting an online gathering that ends this Friday, 4/27.  As part of this gathering I will cover shipping for anyone who places an order of $50 or more.  This is a savings of at least $7.95!  If you place a $35 order from the current catalog, you can purchase the Dotty for You paper pack for only $5.  And if you spend $50 you can buy the stamp of the month for $5 also!

As an added incentive, I will also do a raffle drawing of anyone who orders (any amount) at this gathering for a full size stamp set worth $17.95!!!

The best part of ordering as an online gathering instead of regular order is that you can order from the “WHILE SUPPLIES LAST” section with your same order.  If you check that out you will be amazed at the items for a steal!  Paper packs, ribbon, buttons and more for pennies on the dollar!

If you are interested in ordering at this gathering, click on the ‘join Maria’s gathering’ button at the bottom right of my page at

Cards on the go

I travel every week for work.  When I’m lucky enough to be driving to my client, as I am now, I try to bring some crafty things to do in my hotel.  I often pack a ton of paper items and stamps and ink pads, only to find I don’t have enough time and don’t use it, or don’t feel like dragging it all out.  Tonight was one of those nights.  I have a bag packed efficiently with lots of CTMH stamp pads, a bunch of stamp sets, the paper trimmer and who knows what else.  I just didn’t feel like making a mess at 8pm so instead I decided to just make some ‘halfway’ cards for now and then when I’m home in my comfy craft room I’ll make a mess with ink and stamps.

What I did was last weekend, while I was doing some other things in the kitchen, I cut a ton of various shapes on the cricut on Art Philosophy.  I cut full sheets of paper packs, some scraps into shapes, and some cool other papers I had that seemed to match the paper packs I was using.  I had absolutely no plan when I did this other than I am going to make cards out of this.  So when I felt like doing something creative tonight, but not quite start to finish, I pulled out the shapes:

I just sat and put together a bunch of cards to be.  I say to be because I want to stamp them and embellish more but not in this hotel room :)

This is some of what I did with these scraps (sorry about the quality they are phone pics).  More to come when they are complete.

I even cut out a bunch of roses and other flowers so I can add them to coordinate.  And then I forgot to pack my tweezers so those will have to go on later.

These took me less than an hour to do and now I can have some fun figuring out what I want to stamp on each and what kind of cards they are each going to become!

Going….going….gone!

If you have not yet purchased your Close to My Heart How-To pattern books (Imagine, Cherish, Magic, Originals, Wishes, Reflections), but were planning to…they are being discontinued and are selling out QUICK! Reflections is already SOLD OUT and Originals is almost gone! If you’re planning to complete your collection, don’t wait!! Get yours ordered NOW before they are gone!

I absolutely love my how-to books.  I have been learning many different ways to make cards by using the layouts in these books.  They have printable templates and more ideas than I can count!
