Valentines in Pinks and Glitter

While the wind is whipping outside, the temperature is down into the teens, and the fireplace is blazing, I'm enjoying some card making time and using some of my non-CTMH scrap papers -- along with the CTMH MyAcrylix stamps (they are the BEST!) and the new silver glitter paper!

La Belle Vie Cards

These are some of the La Belle Vie paper packet cards I made recently. Colors I used include Blush, Bamboo, Smokey Plum, Colonial White, and Black inks.

Rebecca Brown, a CTMH consultant who lives near me, designed a card workshop using many strips of paper, and I fashioned some of these adapting her ideas. I enjoyed spending a creative Sunday afternoon with Rebecca, Debbie, and Loretta.

The die cuts are designs from CTMH's Artiste cartridge for Cricut. 

Thanks for stopping by and browsing! I'm always thankful for comments you leave too!

Pear & Partridge Ornament Photo Cube

Pear and Partridge patterned papers and cardstock, along with Art Philosophy-cut Cricut flowers and leaves, Sparkles, and cranberry ribbon cover this cube from Close To My Heart.

It's a special way to show off 2.5 x 2.5 inch photos (they can be layered on all sides) and hang them on your Christmas tree as wonderful memories. Journaling about dates, people, places, and events can be done on the cardstock under all the photos that you layer. 

Think about your family members and friends who might like this unique gift -- and make them ahead of time and add photos from throughout the year! Or make ornaments for a Valentine tree branch, an Easter tree, a birthday branch, or an anniversary memory tree.

I used Liquid Glass to make the flower petals shine. It also helps to hold corners of papers down tightly, and to secure the ribbon in the hole.

THANK YOU to my CTMH upline, Debra Butler, for gifting me with the pre-cut papers and the cube! 

Happy creating!
