Merci Beaucoup

I needed a quick Thank You card and I whipped one up using the Balloon Ride paper pack and the Give a Lift Stamp Set.  I thought the sentiment fit perfectly inside the little banner on the hot air balloon.  I used Saddle cardstock as my card base and both sides of the Balloon Ride B&T Duo for my panels.  The image is mounted on on Crystal Blue cardstock.  I finished it off with the Brown and Tan Sparkles Assortment.  If you like these papers and stamps, you'd better hurry and get them because they are being retired at the end of this month.  

Items used:

Paper: Balloon Ride Paper Pack X7180B, Saddle cardstock X5928, Crystal Blue cardstock 1292
Stamps: Give a Lift D1581
Ink: Saddle Z2171, Crystal Blue Z2117
Other: Brown and Tan Sparkles Assortment Z1743

Until next time, keep on crafting.

Let's Celebrate!

Well, it seems that most of my blog posts begin with an apology for not posting in a long time so I'll just skip that this time and say "Happy 4th of July!"

I created this card using June's Stamp of the Month, Kaboom (S1406).  I used Outdoor Denim and Cranberry for the card base and mats.  I also used White Daisy card stock and stamped the fireworks and tickets with Outdoor Denim and Cranberry Exclusive Inks.  I made two banners using the red Shimmer Trim.  

The SOTM for July is Circus Alphabet (S1407) and it can be yours for $5 with a $50.00 purchase.

The current catalog is coming to a close and there are only a few weeks left to get any retiring items so if there is something you've been wanting to get, you'd better hurry!

I hope you all have a safe and fun 4th of July and until next time, keep on crafting!

Give Thanks

The Huntington paper collection is one of my favorites in this catalog.  I am an autumn baby and I just love the colors, crisp (but not too crisp) weather and the falling leaves.  This collection evokes all those feelings and I just love using it.

I created this layout for a consultants' new catalog swap.  I used the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge for all the die cuts.  I hope you like it.

Don't forget you just have a few days left to get the September Stamp of the Month and the September Special.

This gorgeous stamp set is $5.00 with a $50 purchase.

This fun set is chock full of sayings, images and a full upper and lower case alphabet and is only $10 with a $50 purchase.  To shop with me, go to

Until next time, keep on crafting.
