It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...Welcome to another post from Me, Deirdre over at Glittered Roses.  I don't know about you, but when I start seeing my stores fill up with holiday items it just makes me want to start getting ready for Christmas, so to kick things off I made these cute little tags.  Right now all the rave from what I can see are stamps with coordinating dies.  If you anything like me I like to craft on a budget, so because the investment has been made take out your Cricut Machine and Art Philosophy cart

The sentiment is from Holiday Tags (D1560) stamp set

The sentiment is from For a Friend (D1542) stamp set

Until next week continue "creating something handmade"

Just Like Riding a Bike

Hi - I have another card for you today using a pocket scrapbooking card, this time a little more blinged up.

Using a CTMH cardstock base I cut my My Reflections "wanderful" paper to size and matted to the base.  I then added the super cute bicycle card to the left side and sprayed with gold mist on either side.  Once the mist had dryed I added sprayed binding ribbon and a pearl strip to the bottom then layed down a flower cluster.  Very appropriate as Spring is blooming here in New Zealand at the moment and daylight saving has just begun.

Thanks for joining me today, happy scrapping.

The Golden Ticket

Hello welcome, welcome to another product feature post.  I am kind of excited about this project because the inspiration came from a blog that I came across while surfing the internet.  Have you ever looked at a project and the supply list only to find that you don't have the tools needed to complete the project?  Well in this case I got lucky and was able to find a very good option using my Cricut Artbooking Cartridge.

Using My Reflections Designer Paper Pathfinding (X7186B), Stamp set For a Friend (D1542) which is absolutely beautiful when stamped this little tag set came out perfect.

I used tons of gold embossing powder which really made the stamp and cuts stand out

This stamp set is one I see myself using over and over and over

I hope you have enjoyed my project inspiration.  If you are interested in purchasing this stamp set, paper and cartridge be sure and contact Heather right away.
Until next week continue "creating something handmade" because when you make it you know it comes from the heart...
