Cards R Us.......

Well it appears that I am out of my funk and I am really enjoying making cards these days. I made 5 cards today...okay, I made 1 cards and 4 others are in process. I need sentiments on them. I am having a blast and it is keeping my mind busy. I have a very understanding and patient Hubby who doesn't complain when I hang out in my Hobby room. He says I have a "very rough life". Life is Good!

These cards I have been making utilizes my scrap well. Paper used is CTMH Pattern paper with Honey cardstock. I hand stitched the card with WAX LINEN.

Look Mom...No Flowers!

My Mom is my biggest fan, but tells me I seem to overdue things with flowers...But I love Flowers...So this project was done almost strictly with paper. I used recycled acetate packaging for the boxes (they are what my Christmas ornaments came in). Just cut off one end, or cut one down and use the end for a lid. I lined them with paper and chipboard and added a stamped image to complete them. Now I just need to fill them with goodies.

I am trying to use up my Basic Grey paper I started using the scraps to make some cards. My paper is going further than I expected. I made 4 cards so far, but am only posting my favorite. I think it would be easier to give up on the idea of using up all my paper and move on. So enjoy my creations, simple and without flowers.

Few and Far Between...

I do not usually make card for Christmas, but this year I made a woppin' 5 cards. I kept them very simple and thought I would show them off. I had a hard time keeping them plain and then repeating the same thing on 5 times. You would think it would be easier. So, Enjoy! And Merry Christmas to you all!
The one with the tin is for my Postal carrier for all the orders that get sent from our business.

Cold Nose, Warm Heart

So, I was inspired by Faith's artwork and had to make a card for myself. This was so fun to create. I used PSX tree stamp and a snowman from CTMH. Colors used are Sunflower, Chocolate and New England Ivy. I actually made two cards similar to each other, so I could keep one for myself. During the busy holiday season I am enjoying creating instead of cleaning and doing what I should be doing. Aren't holidays grand?

Getting Around To It...

I am a proud owner of the Klic-n-Kut cutter. I have not had a lot of time to play with it, or work. I have done a few vinyl signs and the last scrapbook page I posted. I cut a few fun things here and there...but haven't gotten serious. I have the manual on the computer,but until now have relied on my buddy Sandy (wrote the manual, and makes the KNK tutorials), but didn't take time to read it. Determined to learn the program inside and out I printed the manual. Well that wasn't enough....using my Bind-it-all I decorated it. Now It's just right for learnin'. Let the fun begin. What fun colors to, teal, blue, lime and of course my favorite...yellow! It matches my "original" KNK...woo hooo...and my truck...did I mention I love Yellow?

Love's Me Not...LOVE'S ME!!

This is a 2 page layout I made using my Klic-n-Kut cutter. I designed the flourishes, daisies and words and then used lots of small dots for shading (pointillism). This is probably one of the most "clean" looking pages I have made. I have a problem with empty spaces and this was a challenge for me to stop when I did and decide space was okay. Cutters make life so much easier. I thought I would share this with you to hold you over until I get my current project (in the making) completed...Rome wasn't built in a day you know!
