Pathfinding FALL letters

Hope you all had a Happy Turkey Day!!!!  Wanted to share this last Fall project with you (okay so I'm just not ready for Christmas yet maybe because its in the 80's today).  I made this with our amazingly rich Pathfinding paperpack and embellishments.  The wood pieces came from Wood Creations.

Happy Birthday Love Bug - Artfully Sent


Since its my Birthday AND as a child of the 1970's I thought I'd share this fun card project I made using the new CTMH Cricut Artfully Sent and Chalk it up papers designed by my good friend and CTMH Sister Dawn Heuft.

I love the Slug Bug (Yup that's still what I call them) and how Dawn recommended we add the big Sparkles to the headlights! Genius!  The second photo might not show it but the car inside pops up off the card when the card opens....so stinking cute!!!!

Thank You For Your Service! Happy Veteran's Day!!!!

Using Desert Sand Cardstock and CTMH's new Cricut Artfully Sent, I was quickly and easy able to cut this card to give my husband for Veteran's Day.

The eagle is totally cut out and popped up, with foam tape AFTER I completely inked it with VersaMark™ Ink Pad and then heat embossed it with Ranger™ Princess Gold Embossing Powder.

The pops of color behind the words and flags were easily created by taping in colored cardstock in from behind.  Afterwards I completely hid those pieces by glueing another full card size piece of Desert Sand cardstock overtop, creating a hidden sandwich effect on the inside of the card.

Happy USMC Birthday - Wine Bottle Topper

As a way to wish a very Happy 239th Birthday to the US Marine Corps I made this wine bottle topper to take with us to our Birthday Ball later this month. 

The main card was cut using CTMH's brand new Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge (don't you love it!) out of Cranberry cardstock.  The rose was cut from CTMH's Cricut Artiste

To get that great lit bit of sparkle and POP on the word "Remember" I inserted a piece of Bronze Shimmer Trim Z1849 onto the Honey Cardstock, before I slid it into the pocket.  Both the pocket and the rose are distressed with Cranberry ink.
