Pop In

I thought I’d pop in on a Friday morning with a fun gift box idea.  I needed a fun way to display a movie gift card and saw a cute idea on Pinterest, so I grabbed my Artiste cartridge and started cutting away.

I used paper straws to hold up my gift card and shapes.  I think I’ll be using this idea in card form too so stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by on a Friday…enjoy your weekend.

This month we have almost 30 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month’s SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do – just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I made this fun box using the new All About the Gold  and Rustic Home Fundamentals.  The tag was cut from the Flower Market Cricut cartridge in three sizes Black 2 3/4, Kraft 2 1/2 and Colonial White 2 1/4.  The glass of bubbly and sentiment was embossed using Versa Mark and Gold embossing powder.

Inspired Designs

I love the new Annual Inspirations from Close to My Heart – not only is in chocked full of stamps, papers and assorted pieces of bling it is loaded with inspiration!

Take this box for instance – it’s straight from page 15 using the November stamp of the month.  I’m not so much into the fussy cutting of all the flowers, but I think it would make the perfect place card at a Thanksgiving table or if you’re less formal a small gift for each of your guests.

This next card was actually inspired by the Kraft 3 Ring Album on page 56.  I loved the layers of color from light to dark.

I used another stamp from the Happy Autumn stamp set for the inside of the card.  I think the group of flowers actually look like dandelion blooms and I think I may try stamping them in white for a different look!  I will probably end up making a Thankful album as I’ve challenged my family to come up with one thing every day for the month of November.

My last card was inspired from one I saw on the Close to My Heart webpage.  It was done with a different paperpack, but I’m trying to use up the remainder of my Pathfinding paper.  I used the new Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge sleeve and lined it with a piece of B & T.

I loved my day in the craft room!
