Christmas Tag

Here is one of the Christmas tags that we made in my class last Tuesday.  It uses the November Stamp Of The Month (SOTM), Cherish The Day S1111 on the ticket part of the the tag.  This month when you purschase $50.00 or more you are able to get the SOTM for only $5.00.  That's a great deal.  It has 44 stamps on it.  WOW!  That beats any Black Friday deal out there, I think.  What a great stamp set to have.  I can think of 3 different ways to use the tickets.  Birthday's, Holiday's, and reminder dates.
The Santa is from Christmas Cheer D1494.  The No Peeking!,  To:, and From: are from December 25th C1469.  All of these are fun stamp set for this time of year.
I used the Believe Paper Pack and 3 Bitty Sparkles.  I do love my sparkles!!  The reindeer trim piece is from the cut away on the edge of the Believe Paper.  I just love the trim pieces.  The Santa is water colored in and I used Liquid Applique for all the trim on Santa's suit.  The ticket is a cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge (AP).  If you don't have this cartridge you don't know what you are missing.  It is so fun when paired with our coordinating stamp sets.  It truly is a must have.  The tag itself is cut from the AP cartridge too.

December Display Album with Holiday Wishes and Art Philosophy

Well Jenn did it again! This months Display Album was a big hit in class.  My DIL has done a super job with this and I think she is having a great time coming up with the Ideas too.  Jenn used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge for all the cuts.  Jenn also used the new Holiday Wishes CC1015 stamp set to stamp over the Art Philosophy ornament cuts. You can get the Holiday Wishes stamp set this month for $5.00 when you order $25.00 or more of My Acrylix Stamp Sets.  That is a great deal!!! 
They are stamped with StazOn, Black for that striking bold look.  The Red Glitz Glitter Gel adds the perfect bling with it red sparkle.  The Black, White, and Cranberry make it look very elegant as well.  The whole class just loved it. 
 You can't see the red sparkles in the picture but trust me it's there.

Coffee Anyone

I made these a long time ago for a table that would have the Coffee Pots and Hot Water on them.   But with the holidays coming up I thought they might be fun to post now.
They are cut from the From My Kitchen Cricut cartridge.  I don't remember any of the sizes and the paper is from a retired paper pack.  When I saw the paper it made me think of the coffee pot from the 50's 60's with the Gold star burst on them (Not that I am dating my self or anything).  When I was asked to make something for the coffee table the paper popped into my head.  I just love when that happens!  The funny thing was shortly after putting them on the table and before most of the guest arrived the Coffee one was gone.  They looked everywhere but never found it.  I took it as a compliment that someone took it because they loved it and wanted to use it too.
Well here they are

I just folded a rectangle piece of paper in half for the tent. Then attach the pot and the words to the front.
The decaf is cut with individual letter (not sure which cart. I used for that). This was done years ago sorry.... From My Kitchen does not have Decaf on it but it should LOL. No one ever asks for my input on these things....
Well like I said with the Holiday's coming up I thought they might be of use to someone who wanted to make them too.
Let me know if you make them. I would love to see what you come up with too.

I love Banners Fall/Noel

I have so much fun creating banners.  This one is a Fall/ Noel Banner.
If you are a CMTH Consultant then you will remember the topic Consume it don't collect it at the 2011 Convention.  That was just one of my take aways.  I really took that to heart (no pun intended:)).  All the papers are ones that I loved and wanted to use for something very special but are no longer available.  So here I go consuming it.
I created this with two of my good friends Carol and Adrienne.  Thanks Ladies it was so much fun.

I would love to hear what you think.

November Display Album Page

This is the November Display Album Page that my DIL Jenn came up with for our class.  She is doing such a great job with this idea I just love what she did.
If you would like to join any of my classes just let me know
You can find the dates and times here.
Yes she did make different backgrounds to choose from and all the coordinating cuts are made with the New Exclusive Art Philosophy Cricurt cartridge and the stamp set tells you on the carrier sheet what size to cut the shape at.  No guessing or trial an error to get the right size.  That is just so great.
