Cricut Artbooking Luminaries and more...

Aren't these just to cute!!!
 Imagine how cool they will be with the lights off and the glow of the candle showing through them!!! 
I created these with the new CTMH Cricut Artbooking Cartridge. They are my variations of the ones that are in the 2013 Autumn/Winter Idea Book (on page 17)
Fall is my favorite time of year, the colors are so rich and I LOVE the changing colors of the leaves. That has to be one of the hardest parts of living here in Florida...we really don't get much of a fall. I guess that is why this time of year my projects tend to revolve around the yellows, browns, reds and oranges (even my summer one blends right in with the others). Next on my agenda is to try a winter one...other then the one with the sunflowers that I already agreed to make for someone (love you sis!)

I wanted to share some other projects I have been working on as well...just a few quick pictures for now...I will share more info on them later (it's late and I need to get some sleep...I was just so excited that I was able to create today)

These are the Create-n-Take projects we will be doing at my Open House this weekend.

These are the gifts that my guests are going to recieve...using the August SOTM

And lastly...this is part of my new obsession...I found that I CRAZY about making flowers-they are soooo much fun. My husband is laughing at me because I don't even wear them :)

Like I said...sleep is calling so I will share the details later! Thanks for looking and have a wonderful night :)

Sweet Dreams,

Family-Thinking of you card...using Mojo Mondays sketch #307

This is my interpretation of the Mojo Monday sketch #307.
I wanted to make a card featuring the CTMH September Stamp of the Month "Poster Tidings" and I have to say...I had a hard time as it is not one of my favorite stamp sets. This sketch was great because I figured I could just highlight a portion of the stamp set with some autumn colored paper (I LOVE the Huntington paper)

I covered over a few of the words above and below "Family" because they didn't go with the card at all, but I left the pumpkin and chocolate chip cookies...cause honestly when it comes to fall and family...those are some of the comforts from home :) The picture doesn't show it very well but I used the beautiful Bronze Shimmer Trim-it already has the adhesive on easy to use!!!

  I used 3D Foam Tape to give some dimension and I also curled the tips of the banners for the same reason. The shape is cut from the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. The "bling" is from the Small Sparkle Flourishes.

Chocolate...Cotton Candy...and Champagne...ooohhhh yummy!!!!

Did I get your attention??? I know I'm drooling with anticipation :)

There is still time to be able to get this DELICIOUS Stamp Of The Month (SOTM) set "A Chocolate Affair" for FREE!!! That's heard me...Chocolate and Free in the same sentence-how can you pass this up?!?!

Here are a few cards that I just "whipped up" with the ingredients mentioned above...

This one I scored the Chocolate card stock to make it look like a candy bar and then wrapped it in aluminum foil, I tore the "wrapper" and tried to cut the corner to make it look like someone had taken a big 'ole bite out of it. In case it's hard to see the inside of the card says "Chocolate Understands" - isn't that the sure doesn't judge if you've had a hard day and just need some comfort :)

For this card I used the new Make It From Your Heart Volume 2 Idea/Pattern book. There are some AMAZING ideas in this...for scrapbookers and for cardmakers alike! I just randomly stamped the candies on Champagne cardstock to make the background paper and then colored in a few with the Cotton Candy Alcohol Markers and cut them out to add some dimension.
