Catching Up On Projects

Well, it seems as though I finally have made my way back into the craft room with one giant intention…getting things organized!  What that meant to me was finishing some projects that have been hanging around for a while – like since last fall!  It was a great accomplishment and now I can move on to new things…which includes making about 50 birthday cards for family and friends so that I don’t miss anyone this year!

So, I thought this would be a great time to share a stationary box that I made.  It was a quick easy gift using the My Creations Card Box (Z1647)  and the Avonlea  Paper Packet (X7155B) which I filled with 3 X 3 Cricut Cards cut from the Art Philosophy Cartridge and a pen that I filled with matching paper.

If you’d be interested in making one of these for yourself or a gift, give me a call!

Happy Crafting!

Avonlea Graces Paper Trail With Elegance in December

Thanks for stopping by and checking out the beautiful Avonlea Paper Packet featured on the Paper Trail Blog Hop, if you have made your way here from Amy’s Blog you are on the right track if not that’s ok, we are a circular hop and if you follow the links you’ll end up right back here!

This catalog has really challenged me to pick a favorite paper and I have to Avonlea is in the top three!  As soon as I saw the paper, I knew that although it screamed WINTER with the beautiful snowflake patterns it had so much more to offer with its elegant colors.  The  paper packet features three seasonal colors Avonlea Off-White, Avonlea Teal, Avolea Green which coordinate perfectly with our newly released Slate Cardstock.  Of course a touch of Chocolate or Smokey Plum as featured in the Workshop on the Go Avonlea Card Making Kit  gives you some amazing pops of color for accents.


My first card features a teal and slate background with just a hint of the large patterned paper, I wanted to feature a rosette of green and topped it with a crocheted flower and brad from the Antiqued Gold Mini-Medley Accents Collection.



My second card was cut from the Artiste Cartridge and the “Congrats” stamped in Slate is from the coordinating Artiste Stamp Set.  A touch of Silver Shimmer Trim (my favorite new accessory) makes a very elegant card perfect for a wedding!

Once again I thank you for stopping by and hope you’ll check back again to see what else I’ve done with this versatile kit.  Believe me, I have several things up my sleeve.  Now head on over to the Vicki’s Wizards Hangout and be ready to be awed!
