Scrappin Fun using Roxie, Wings and Bella Paper Packs

I live on the East coast and we are experiencing rain from Irene..needless to say it is a great rainy day for scrapbooking. I had fun scrapbooking some pictures my brother sent to me. I used the new Roxie paper packet along with Wings and Bella. I used a combination of stamps...You & Me, Enjoy Life, American Celebration, Giggles Lowercase, Dreams Come True and Pair-A-Phrase.....ENJOY!!

Typeset

I had some fun this afternoon completing a few layouts using the Typeset Level 2 Paper Pack. I also used the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge to cut out the numbers, hearts and journal box. The title was completed using the Vintage Type stamp set. I love this paper packet. The colors are soo pretty. This is a must have as the cardstock and B&T paper is so versatile. ENJOY!

Sophia Composition Book

I purchased a composition book from the Dollar Store and covered the front and back using contents of the Sophia WOTG kit G1019. My daughter will use this as her journal for the upcoming school year.

"Miracle" Card Fun

I had fun making 2 cards from the Miracle WOTG kit. I learned how to make an accordion flower via a consultants blog. You can check her out at


www.gonestamping.blogspot.com 
where she provides a link on how to make it. I used the following stamp sets: Everyday Life, D1187 For Every Occasion and E1020 Token Alphabet. I was pleased with the results and I must add I absolutely love this Art Philosophy Cricut Cartidge. I made both of the cards using this cartridge! Can we say I am becoming addicted to the Cricut.


Heart 2 Heart Challenge....

I found this cool blog where they have challenges you can enter. Talk about motivation to get you creating! This weeks challenge theme is kids birthday and of course you need to use CTMH products!! See my birthday card below. I used the Art Philosophy cartridge Z1681 to cut out the card. I applied B&T paper from the You & Me kit to the front of the card with Opaques Adhesive Gems Z1333. As you can see this card has an amazing see through window so I stamped a cupcake using the Art Philosophy Celebration stamp set. I colored it in using colored pencils and then restamped with Versamark Z891 and sprinkled with clear embossing powder. I heat embossed the cupcake using CTMH Craft Heater Z555 which made the black ink glossy. The cupcake has 3D foam tape on the back which makes it pop....

Art Philosophy


Above is the card I created during my first attempt at using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartidge. I have to admit I have had a Cricut for several years collecting dust, however now I have a reason to use it. It took me a few tries to get it right but it came together quite nice. I think I am addicted to the Cricut!

Pull Out Box Card




I absolutely love cruising different scrapbook sites and CTMH blogs to see the wonderful project ideas. I came across instructions provided by Angela Tutton to create this amazing Pull Out Box Card. I loved the finished product! I gave this card to a friend who's birthday was last week.

The card was constructed using CTMH "Wings" paper. I used the following stamps to completed: D1452 Find Your Style, D1187 For Every Occasion and CC1014 which is the special Pair-a-Phrase Double Stamp Set. I added a little bling to the band around the card and the wings of the butterflies inside the card.
