A classic two tone Thank You card. Not sure if the paper is Heidi Swapp or not, I have had it that long,but the cardstock is Close to my Heart's Cocoa color. Some swirly stamping on the cardstock and fun elements as a whole.
I love the bold colors in this card, the paper is Close to my Heart as is the cardstock stickers, stamp and embellishments. I also used Close to my Hearts Cricut Cartridge - Art Philosophy for the great layered tag in the center.
This next Thank You Card is part of a Heidi Swapp design paper. I took my favorte element on the page and used it the main focus on the card.
Thought this monthe I would do a series of just Thank You cards. I had fallen in love with Basic Grey's Mellow Collection, with the colors, images, design, everything. So when I had some pieces left over I decided to make a great card.

Trying to get back into a routine since summer so I might have a bunch of posts in a row. I have been busily making cards and other goodies for the upcoming Christmas Bazaar here in Yuzhno, mostly cards as my focus will be on the kids section of the bazaar. But I have got to make something, my creative juices continue to flow! So with the trend of chevron design I decided to make a chevron using a diagonal design I had in my stash.

On to the next one! I quite enjoy planning class for our scrapbook group, it's kinda like a puzzle, what to do here, what goes there. I also like to do different layouts for different papers, case in point, our next class I used Close to my Heart Sarsaparilla paper pack. Sarsaparilla has some great cowboy elements, I tend to like the flourished that are through out the papers.

Up for the next challenge was Mojo Monday, and thier latest sketch. A cute little sketch and everyone one loved it there are lots of entries. I was having a challenge figuring out what to do with 4, not 3, jumpy circles? I could do flowers, but most of the ladies did those, I could do the actual circle, too cliche, or I could do butterflies? To many ideas, I ended up thinking about it for a day and realized that what hangs not at the same level are lanterns, the are never just in a straight line, so with some asian inspiration I dug out my Pagoda cricut cartridge.

I ended up joining some challenge sites lately to get some extra inspiration. One of them was Clean & Simple, no prizes but fun layouts, all cards so that should get me back up to my old stock level of cards as our Happy Hobby craft show wiped me out. This is the sketch: HERE!

I have been very busy making lots of cards and layouts so I thought it was time for a change. I found this great craft on the Cricut Message boards and had to use it. These are clothes pin magnets topped with fruit from the Preserves Cartridge and matching recipe cards.

Yesterday I caught up on my picture taking...I had sooo many layouts and cards that needed to be photographed that it took me most of the afternoon. But, now caught up, I have a load of pictures to post for you!!! I decided to start with a layout, lately while perusing the blogosphere, I realized that there seems to be a shortage of layouts posted. I still love to use Close to my Heart Scrapbook Layouts, they are clear and I DO always get a great layout, I am no longer a consultant but still love all things Close to my Heart. This layout is all CTMH except 6 little buttons and Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist.
A really sweet layout for either a B/W baby photos or Wedding pictures, it is dreamy and soft, perfect for those pictures. I did lots of different techniques on these pages,So I cut up the mask I used and used the pieces to embellish this great layout. I am not sure if I should classify this as Shabby Chic or Romantic, but I love this layout and will use my Cricut to make many more masks!!!!
