Tag Your It

I finally made it to the tag stage!  The Perfect Presents stamp set made cute gift tags so easy with a little help from my Art Philosophy cartridge.

Not sure if I will get more craft time this week, but next week I hope to be bringing you some sneak peeks!

Don’t forget you only have until December 31 to order from this catalog which includes the Perfect Presents stamp set!

Thanks for stopping by!  Merry Christmas!


A Jar of Cheer

I remember rows of  Mason Jars in my grandma’s pantry when I was a child…now they are probably used more for decoration than for preserving fruit.  I was excited to find a “jar” as one of the containers on our new Flower Market Cricut Cartridge.

This fun little 4.5 X 4.5 card is made with Kraft Cardstock and the band is from the City Sidewalks paper packet.  The White panel has been embossed with the Snowflakes Embossing folder.  All the elements from the jar were cut from the Cricut Flower Market Collection.  I love the two toned holly leaves.  I’ve used them on a couple of cards – you’ll see another one soon!

Thank you for stopping by…you can always find all the supplies that I used to make my card by visiting my webpage at www.papercraftingprincess.ctmh.com.  So that you don’t miss any of my other upcoming City Sidewalks artwork make sure you click on the follow me button on the sidebar of my blog.

Yuletide Joy – October SOTM

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring October’s SOTM, which is Yultide Joy, a set of seven stamps.  If you have come here from Nina’s Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog:  http://ifyoublingit.blogspot.com/p/stamp-of-month-blog-hop-list.html.





This month we have almost 40 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 reached for the Oh Deer paper packet for this card.  The soft colors of this paper packet, Bamboo, Cocoa, Colonial White, Dessert Sand, Fern, Juniper, Seaglass, Slate and Whisper and White Daisy paired with some Ruby cardstock really gives it a wintry feel.  I chose to use the Star image from the Stamp of the Month which coordinates with a Cricut Art Philosophy cut.  The Sea Glass star was cut out and then embossed in Gold and popped up onto a Dessert Sand tag.  I added a few accents – a piece of Sea Glass Glitter paper under the Zip Strip from Oh Deer and then a piece of White & Gold Twine doubled and tied in a knot to hold the tag on, I finished off the tag with two small Red Enamel Gems.

Now “Hop” on over to Terrie’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas!

Ho Ho Ho – AHSC #136

Do you remember Believe?  I was playing with Christmas papers when I remembered that I had a sketch to work on for the Design Team at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I also had a 10 year old hanging off my neck so I knew that a decent stamped image was not going to be an option.


I loved this weeks’s sketch.  It was really clean and simple and I had so many ideas for what could be those little strips of paper.



I love the fun and happy Santa of this retired paper packet, but what I loved more was the reindeer on the zip strip!

Won’t you join us this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge?
