Getting Ready for the New Year

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...Not that I want to make this year go any faster!  But I just wanted to make a little calendar for next year.
Remember the Butterfly card that I just made, you can see it here.  Well this is made using that little cut out from the center front of the card.  I had a bunch of them leftover and so I started playing around with them and this is what I came up with.
 The base for the calendar is a chip board coaster.  If you ask at you local Restaurant they will usually give you a couple.
I covered it with a piece of pattern paper from the Clementine paper pack you can see it here. 
I sponged everything with Twilight ink Z2160 except for the 2013.  That I sponged with Sorbet Z2164
The calendar is a free printable online for 2013.
The Ribbon in the Dark Chocolate Striped Grosgrain Ribbon Z1617
You can order everything you need here!

These make great stocking stuffer too!  Who doesn't need a little calendar they can put just about anywhere.

Christmas Gift Card Holder

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...Here is a just a plain cut for the Cricut Artiste cartridge that I made the other day.  I just love how simple it is.
It fits a gift card perfectly.
You can see the 3 different cuts that I used to make this.
All the B&T paper is CTMH Pear & Partridge the Cardstock is Desert Sand p41 Card.  I really like how it all coordinates and I really don't have to worry about finding things that go together.
The little gold doily is a from a yard sale about 70 differernt kinds of them in a baggie for $1.00.  I love yard sales.  I got the this frame and 2 others there too for $1.00.  I had no idea what I was going to do with them but when I started making this gift card I knew it needed a little something extra.
The Belly band is the cut that goes with the Gift Card holder p41 Card/S.  "Well that is what I am calling it."  You can use it as a stand alone card or and gift tag too.
The Tree is from Art Philosophy p52 Tree2/S.
The Stamp Set, Ribbon, and Bling are from the Pear & Partridge Workshop on the Go G1043 you can see it here.
I stamped, and sponged around everything with New England Ivy.
I will be making more of these for sure.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
