Customized gifts, cards, and mini albums. This blog represents a series of projects,styles,tutorials, and digital files. My passion is to make Art with Encouragement. You can find me on Facebook and Youtube sharing ideas and tutorials, as well as products I love to use.
This is a little OWL book I put together at a crop. I still have some more work to do on the inside, but the front is completed. I used several flowers, (the glittery ones came that way!) cutting petals as needed to accommodate the space and a good friend gave me the perfect Eyes. I can't wait to finish this! My plan is to put favorite Bible verses on ea. page to keep in my purse.
This is one of those popular Hot Chocolate holders. They are extremely easy to make, but as you see, you can really add some special touches. I stamped the gingerbread image to the cup from JOTS and embellished with Martha Stewart glitter. Also, I embossed the envelope to give it texture. I used my scor-pal to get crisp edges and punched holes at top to thread the ribbon. The tag was from Plantin Schoolbook, using the End Cap feature. I absolutely LOVE that feature!!
These were some fun little candy cane- holders for my son's class. I had hoped to post a tutorial but that didn't work :(. These little stockings are from JOTS, cut at 3.5", with the layer and shadow cut at the same size. Some of the bows didn't cut out correctly (not sure why) so I improvised and used the red ribbon you see here. The candy canes were taped to the back with the message: Merry Christmas. Super Simple!
This is simply one of my favorite birhtday cards. I had an idea of what I wanted to do, and got pretty close to the result by using a little imagination and tweaking some cuts made with the Cricut and the Zoobaloo cartridge.
