Christmas Card Prototypes

Cards done, the only changes on the actual cards is the white on this one will be ivory a much softer color. Will look very nice. Nice sentiment inside.

Happy Fall!

I'm so excited abut the cooler weather. How about you?

Well, I've been in a creative mode again and want to share some pictures with you on what I made today.

First is the Fall charger plate, did it with sparkly papers cut into leaves. Got the idea at Michael's yesterday while in Savannah. I hope you like it. It will be another fall decoration.

Second is my J O Y that Royce cut out of wood and painted it for me. Then I put paper on it and embellished it with ribbon and etc. I used Jingle paper packet from CTMH.

Third, I made 3 plaques that again, Royce cut out for me and painted. I cut out shapes on the Damask cartridge and glued then decoupaged them on the wood plaques. I will adhere them to wide ribbon and use it for a wall hanging. I used chocolate paper for the shapes from Close To My Heart.

Enjoy the fruits of labor, will keep you posted as I do other things this week.

Products used on fall decor

For a lot of you that may not know it, I sell Close To My Heart products. I've been a consultant coming up on two years now...
I wanted to explain some of the products I used on the fall decor items..I used all close to my heart paper. Some of the names are Autumn Terracotta, Topiary Green, Kraft paper, Only Orange, and many others.
Realize that the paper is one of the best out there. It is a white core base. It's probably the best for cutting with the ever popular Cricut. I use that and only that for cutting images. The new printed paper is now cardstock quality.
The clear stamps are some of the best I've ever used as well. They're easy to work with, easy to clean.
If your interested in a catalog or wish to order on line at my site, it is:
Or email me at crsblonde@hotmail.com
I'd be more than happy to help you with any orders or questions, or classes if your interested. I can help the beginner or the experienced scrapper or card maker..
Thanking you for looking and for your valued time!

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

I've been out in the shack today. I finished 4 sets of cards that I had already started. Two of which I'm going to post pictures of. The other two sets, Fall and Halloween I won't post because a lot of you will be receiving them. Enjoy the new Easel card and another technique I've learned.

Have a great, happy and safe weekend!

It's Sept. 1st!!

Is fall finally on it's way! It's certainly cooler outside, yeah!

I wanted to post a picture of some angels Helen and Sally and I made for table favors for a church function. They were certainly easy to make and a lot of fun! We had a good time and hope you enjoy our little angels. The colors represent the rainbow!
Be blessed and have a great Labor Day Weekend!c
