Been busy lately!! lots to show you!

Hello friends and family!
I've been busy cardmaking this week! Got a couple of inspirational ideas from Facebook!

 I saw a punch on the internet from Stampin Up and I thought, I can make that on the explore! I used a tag from Very Merry tags and a card base from Art Philosophy and welded them and since I was on Explore I added the score line! love that! Of course I used Ariana paperpack! love that paper! Reminds me of Anna Griffin paper. Since I designed on Cricut Design Space I can share the file!


 Here I used Cotton Candy paperpack, the Flower Confetti Stamp set (CTMH is down right now so I can't link you to that product!) used the CTMH markers, Blush and Pear to color. I made a pile of these and gave them to the girls in their orders. I think they'll like them!


 This is a silhouette file that I saved as an SVG and cut with Cricut Explore. I used Skylark paper pack.
Love these pleated cards! We're going to do this card in my monthly card class! I designed it in Cricut Design Space so can also share this one!

I used Ariana paperpack and Laughing Lola!
 Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!! Hope to see you next week!

Another Fun Card in a Box! and Loss of Pet Sympathy Card

Hello Blogger Friends! Today I have another Card in a box to share with you! And it's once again Hello Kitty! This one is for my neice, who also loves Hello Kitty!


I used an svg on my new Cricut Explore for the card in a box base. the base is an SVG file I got from the Cricut Design Space Facebook page. I wanted to give them credit, but cannot now find it! I only know it came from there because I added the name CDS to the name to help me go back and find it! Lotta good that did, huh!? Hello Kitty was used for most of the rest! don'tcha just love Hello Kitty!?!! I used CTMH Lollydoodle paperpack for the base and the flaps. The gray base card is from Dream Pop as well as all of the colors of all of the images except bear and white when needed. I love the paperpack from CTMH for National Papercrafting Month last May, 2013 called Dream Pop! My favorite all-time CTMH Paperpack! I never thought of not having a place to sign when I made this very popular type card in a box! So since the package in the back looked kinda plain, I used that to sign!! Where do y'all sign these?!!

 I also made a quick sympathy card for a friend that lost her dog this week.
I again, of course! used my new Cricut explore and the base and pattern came from the Butterfly Card from the "Creative Cards" cartridge. I just left off the butterflies. And added the Dog Ange SVG. I've had that svg so long I don't recall where it came from to give them credit! the embossing folder is form AG. For a quick card, didn't think it turned out too bad.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you got some inspiration from your visit! If you did, let me know what you think! I love hearing from you!

Easter Card in a box!

Hello friends, been a while since I last posted again! Hope you have not had too much snow! We have had quite a bit of ice in Texas this year! I know I'll be glad to see spring! and we haven't had it near as bad as folks in the north!

Well, I couldn't wait to try the new Card in a Box everyone loves making! The pattern I have is a little small, and wasn't sure how I was going to like it. Next one will be bigger, but I went ahead and decorated this one up for my DGD. This one does just fit into an A2 envelope! after adding the Hello Kitty and bunny, I might add!
I used an svg file from Lori Whitlock, (click on the link, will take you to that specific box) and cut it with the new CRICUT EXPLORE!! Love this machine!! and Lori Whitlocks files! Looked a little bare to me so added the flowers and Hello Kitty from the Cricut Hello Kitty cart! Love this Hello Kitty with the little bunny! The stamps on the flaps are from CTMH Rewards stamp set, a stamp set you can get by booking a party! The paper used is from Lollydoodle Paper Kit. Even the little eggs are from that pack.

Thanks for stopping by! I can now share this file through Cricut Explore, you will need the carts to cut the Hello Kitty and Straight from the Nest for the flowers, or I'm sure there are lots of grass images you could sub! The rest of it came with the svg file!
Have a great week!
Chris
