HURRY - Seasonal Expressions 1 About to End

Did you know that our awesome Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog is due to end on April 30th?   What does this mean??  This means that most items in this catalog will no longer be available after April 30th.  Here are a few of the items that will carry over.

 
If you haven't already met Charlotte, here she is and she's absolutely beautiful paper! 

This is a layout using Charlotte & Charlotte Complements
 
 
This is our newest Granddaughter Charlee.  Her newborn pictures were a perfect match with this lovely paper. 
 
These are the actual close ups of the paper pack and complements.

 
 
 Here is a wedding card using a Fold Design
 


Used a Zip strip from the top of a B&D Duos paper to create a "Mini" Belly Band.  Each B&D Duos paper has these strips in a variety of coordinating colors and sentiments.  They add so much accent to your layouts and projects.


 
Included in each paper pack are 2 - 12 x 12 pages of Picture My Life cards that can be cut out and used on your pages or projects.  I took advantage of them with this card. 
 
 

 
 

 
Card fully opened



Love card and a lined card to write the sentiment 
 
You can find all the items that are for sale in our Seasonal Expressions 1 Catalog
RIGHT HERE on my website.  The clock is ticking so Hurry~!
 
 
See you soon on the Playground.  Thanks for stopping in.

IT'S ALL ABOUT CRICUT CARTRIDGES


It's time once again to Hop around the Rose Blossom Blog Hop. If you've come from Morgan's TweetSCRAPS Blog, you on going in the right direction.  I'm sure you've enjoyed her gorgeous artwork.

This time we are featuring the Close To My Heart Cricut Cartridges.  We had the choice of using any one of the five amazing cartridges to create our project.  I've chosen to use the Art Philosophy Cartridge to create some pretty flowers to go on a piece of home d├ęcor.

My Dear Friend had a milestone birthday this year and I wanted to make her something that would be a keepsake.  Her 85 year "young" Mom visited her and her hubby in Florida in February of this year.  Hubby was able to send me a few pictures of their adventures during her stay.  I chose this picture as it included all three of them at a Marina. My paper choice is Regatta and Regatta Complements . It is a perfect paper pack as it is all about a nautical theme.  This artwork is glued to a piece of chipboard and then glued to an 8 x 8 Canvas using Liquid Glass.




Here are a couple close-ups of the flowers.

 
 



 The flowers were so fun to create. Some were made using the Paper Fundamentals Enchantment paper pack and some were made with Ruby and Sunset cardstock. 

You can find all the supplies to create this project on MY WEBSITE HERE .

Your next Hop on the path is Kristine's Merry Hearts Creations Blog .  I know you will love what she has created!

Thanks for stopping into the Playground.  Hope to see you again soon.
