Christmas Bokeh Card

Last Friday I was privileged to teach the Bokeh technique at a home party.  My hostess wanted a Christmas theme and did a wonderful job making her home feel like Christmas in September!  This was our make and take project.

A simple card, but so stunning!  We even colored a bitty sparkle with the Carmine marker to create Rudolph's nose.  The houses are a border cut from the new Artistry Cricut Cartridge.  Below is a complete list of products used to create this card.  All items can be purchased on my website  I created a completely different style of card using this technique I gave to the hostess. I will share soon.

Products used:

We had a wonderful time!  If you would like to host your own themed party, contact me, and lets set a date!  ( 801.726.1983)

Hello Life - Fundamental Assortments

This card I made for our monthly card swap we have around the same time as my craft nights.  I liked it as is, but why not add some bling?  One of my new favorite blingy items is the Fundamental Assortments.  They come in 8 colors: Thistle, Glacier, Pear, Cranberry, Peacock, Pomegranate, Black, and Gold.  In each assortment you get 6 wooden stickers, 6 paper bows, 8 plastic clips, and a 6x6 sheet of glitter stickers (my favorite).  

What a great assortment to have on hand to add just a little something to your projects!

You can order all of the supplies to make this card on my website

October Craft Night - Witches Hat

I don't usually post the project so early, but with this one I need to get a count ASAP so I can order the wood to be cut.

This cute witches hat measures about 14 inches high and is covered with our adorable Nevermore paper.  You can't tell in the picture, but it was sprayed with a light layer of black glitter and includes a fun spider to hang from your hat.

Date: October 8th and October 9th
Time: 7:00 PM
Place: My home in North Salt Lake

UPDATE:  This hat is a preorder project.  I have already submitted the order to the wood cutters, so I am not able to take any more orders for this hat.  I will however have additional projects you can work on at craft night.  More details coming soon!

Hello Life and Paper Garden

I'm having a great time playing with these stamp sets this morning!  I will be honest, I wasn't sure about September Stamp of the Month Paper Garden because I'm not a flowery kind of girl, but I love it!  My favorite stamp in the whole set is the chicken wire!  What a great background stamp. The large flowers and stems make a great background too!  You can cut the flowers out with your Artiste Cricut cartridge, no fussy cutting here!  It has grown on me (no pun intended).  I can't wait to create more with it!  

The September stamp special sets pair wonderfully with the Paper Garden stamp set .  I used the sentiments to add to my cards.

These three sets are part of Close To My Hearts National Stamping Month celebration.  They are called Hello Life.  You can purchase each set on it's own for $13.95 or purchase all 3 for only $34.95 (a $6.90 savings).  They are only available this month so don't delay!  Head over to my website and order yours today!   

Additional Close To My Heart Supplies Used:
Z2640 Thistle Ink
Z2642 Flaxen Ink
Z2173 Slate Ink
Z2650 Fern Ink
Z2172 Whisper Ink
X5769 Thistle Cardstock
X5777 Fern Cardstock

I added a bunch of sparkles to the center of the flower.  Love it even more!
