Gift Boxes-Christmas cuts

This silhouette is backed with several layers to add dimension & I used some "snow" effect on the little hat thingy. I also used my white gelly roll pen on the perimeter.

On the opposite side, I placed this ornament die cut with the same "snow" on top, and the holly is accented with stickles. The remaining two sides only have the holly. I finished it with two colors of ribbon.

A little bling nevah hurt anything! All the die cuts are also embossed, yay!

The snowman is from Gypsy wanderings...


Reindeer is also fom Gypsy wanderings. I finished this one off with  three kinds of ribbon. 
Well, I guess I've not been posting much due to my lack of picture-taking lately. I have been busy making Christmas goodies however and here are the latest little boxes I've learned to make & YES, another new favorite!!! I got the instructions from Cricut chick's page. Her tutorial is on video for those who really need to see how this is made, but seriously, it's probably the easiest thing you'll ever make. So give it a try!! I didn't use elastic on my boxes since I didn't have any handy, and I really needed my sweatpants to last me at least one more winter, so I wasn't about to rip those up. A huge thank you goes out to Cricut chick for posting her versions of these!!

Flowers with Cricut Design Space, and Cricut Explore Air 2.

Thank you for joining me!
Today I am posting a short tutorial that comes in handy. I cover how to GROUP, ATTACH, ARRANGE and HIDE layers and shapes to maximize the use of your paper!. Using my Cricut Explore Air 2, Design Space and a FREE File: Creative Bug Flowers, I made custom flowers that coordinate perfectly with the papers in my cards.

Recipe: Cricut Explore Air 2, Creative Bug Flowers in several sizes, Flourish Card,Creative Cards, and Design Space Font: Sunday Swirls Bold, Spellbinders Dies: S4-295, and S2-077, Cardstock: Momenta. Other materials from my stash.

I hope this is useful to you, and that it answers some questions you may have! Please let me know what other types of tutorials may be helpful to you. I am happy to oblige!


Cricut Explore Air 2 Floral Thank You Card

Please enjoy this video, I apologize in advance for the abrupt editing, and I appreciate your feedback. I also should have mentioned that I used the fast-cut feature for some of the die cutting, and made this card very quickly. Overall, I am very pleased! Be blessed!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
