Another fun poinsettia Christmas card. Thanks for taking a look.
I love making Christmas cards, one of my favorite things to do with paper crafts.  Again this card was made with my Winter Wonderland cricut cart. from Anna Griffin.
Christmas in July-This was a simple ornament card I made on a whim. I used the Winter Wonderland cart. & my Explore machine to cut the ornamnet. I embossed the leaves with my cuttlebug & swiss dots folder. I used red ripple holographic card stock & gold shimmery card stock. Very simple card to make. Thanks for stopping by.

Rosette Tutorial for Design Space

First I found the rosette I liked on Anna Griffins Summer Soiree cartridge & put it on the canvas in design space. You will need 4 panel for this rosette, so I sized the one panel & duplicated it 3 times.. This one is the Pool rosette. I cut these particular panels at 4.68" wide x 2.10" in height.

The folding is easy, find the score lines & do an accordion fold. Over, under, over, under, once you start folding it goes quick.

This is when I start adding glue. I use Aileen's Turbo Tacky Glue-Works as good as hot glue in my book.

I use little paper clips, but it's not necessary. I use them because I have them. If you want to I am sure clothes pins would work fine. I've made them without clipping them & they stay together fine.

Here are the 4 panels glued together.

Now I lay the 4 panels down & start to form a circle so I can then glue the last two ends together. This is probably the hardest part & it's not really hard at all. :)

Here it is standing on end.All ends glued together. Next I need to lay it flat to adhere a circle or scallop or whatever shape you want for the middle, this gives it some stability to hold the rosette in a circle.

Now this might look goofy, but it's the way I do it. I have to set something with a bit of weight to it to hold this rosette down, otherwise I will never finish & get the middle circle glued on. Don't laugh. I have arthritis in my hands & most all joints so this is what works for me.

The final rosette, I cut the center circle at 1.5"

I cut this one with double sided cardstock so I have two sides to my rosette. I loved doing double sided paper for these. This cardstock is from a DCVW stack. I hope my tutorial was easy to follow. I have to admit it's the first one I've ever done. Please show me what you make....Have fun & I have to warn you, they are addicting.

Happy Birthday cake for my daughter. I made home made buttermilk cake with butter cream frosting.
This is where I got the inspiration for the flower on my hat.

Home Made Rose onWool Hat

I made this flower & glued down each petal. I rolled & folded the petals until I thought it looked more like a real rose... I added ink to the edges for some distress & depth & then put a lot of Mod Podge all over the flower. I used stickles to put a glitter effect in the middle. I attached the flower to the hat with some long decorative hat pins.

Just Because Card

Fun card to make, I sprayed a bit of home made gold glimmer mist on the card. Then added a couple cuts from my cricut.

Bee Happy

I wanted to use my new Honeycomb embossing folder so I decided to use my Bee Happy stamp to match. I used some brown craft paper, embossed it with the honeycomb embossing folder, inked it a bit with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink.
Embossed a small strip of yellow cardstock with the honeycomb strip emboss folder & inked it with mustard seed yellow distress ink.
Stamped a square with the Bee Happy stamp & inked the edges, under that you'll see a stripped ribbon which is by Stampin Up & the color is called Daffodil Delight & for some reason it looks greenish in color, as does the square that is attached just above the ribbon.

 They are both very yellow.
Funny how the camera can play tricks on us.

Another Everyday Card

This was an easy one to make, I love the easy cards. All I did was emboss half the card & then add some cardstock to the other half. Added a matching flower & ribbon & it was finished.
I really like this Cuttlebug embossing folder, it's came in a pack of four folders called-Decorative Tile Set.

Purse & A Card

These don't necessarily match but took a pic. of them both at the same time.
I cut the purse with my Cricut Expression using the Tags Bags Boxes & More cartridge & I also used the Expression to cut the card. I added ribbon & a silk flower & a couple brads. I love having a fair amount of cards on hand for when the occasion arrises that I need one.

Simple Flower Card

I made this fun simple card in just minutes...I embossed some white cardstock with a Cuttlebug folder called Traffic Jam. Then added it to my card base which is 5x5".
Then added a chevron zig zag in green, a prima flower & a brad in the center. So quick, fun
 & easy.
