Gold Glitter Box

I really love for things to sparkle and shine and especially at Christmas.  This box is from the Cricut project center, it is by Anna Griffin.  It is made with glitter paper and gold shimmer paper (which does not photograph well!).

Tree box with Tags

For this project I I used this little tree box from the Silhouette store.  I added the line around the lid and made it thicker to stand out.  I did some in other colors also I just didn't photograph them before they were given away sorry.  The box is sized at about 5.5" and the lid is a print and cut.

The tags were made with my Cricut, you can find this in the project center.  I made 12 of them and they fit in this little box perfectly.  The sentiment on them is a print and cut.

Happy Pawlidays Card

I really love shaped cards, I just think they are so fun.  This cute little guy is from Rob and Bob for Cricut.  I bought this image last year and am just now getting around to making it...thats how I roll lately!   Anyway the bow is made with gold shimmer paper it just won't photograph well.  I just cut a piece of wire and bent it to make the ring to hold his tag.

Joy to You Card

I made this card with my cricut and an Anna Griffin file.  The wreath and sentiment were print and cut and I added gold stickles to some of the gold dots.  It was a little hard to photograph this and the gold shimmer paper looks flat instead of shimmery.  It is much prettier in person I promise!

Christmas Tags and Box

 For my project today I made a box full of little gift tags.  They are all from the Silhouette store by Lori Whitlock.  I sized the tags to fit into the little sections of the box at 2.6 high (it is a candy box and the sections are removable).   I sized the box as big as i could to fit on the mat at 9.088 for the lid of the box.  I added stickles and chalk for the cheeks.

12 Days of Christmas

Here is my project for today!

For my card today I used the fun Christmas Snowman Tophat Cupcake.  I added stickles to his nose and hat and put him on foam tape also the cupcake base is on foam tape.  The snowflakes were punched out of glitter paper from two different punches.  The stamp is from a retired set.

Cameo 3

I don't normally do this...but I am so frustrated right now.  I bought the new cameo 3 last week did all the machine and software updates but nothing works.  I did the online chat (since they no longer care to talk to their customers!) last week and again today for an hour and 20 minutes just today and that is after spending almost 4 hours trying to figure it out myself.  It won't work and it won't work connected with the cable.  I have spent so much money with Silhouette over the years and been a huge supporter of them but this is crazy!!
They won't even talk to you!!
Finally they said they would have someone call me because I kept asking and they couldn't resolve my issues but it won't be for several days.
I'm going back to Cricut!

Gratitude Journal

I love when you can take a plain little journal or book and turn it into something so different.  That is what I did here.  This is a gratitude journal.  I made this with my friend Sue and she designed the cut files for it.  The sentiments were printed.  Check out the cute little metal acorn on the ribbon.

These little tags were so quick and easy to make and yet I think they are pretty cute.  They were made with designer paper.  The little quilt block star was just hand cut out of the dp.  The sentiments were printed.
