Puttin' on the Glitz!

I wanted to keep this layout simple and let the photo speak for itself. The golden Creme' Brulee' paper from the Footloose paper pack was a perfect match to the setting sun on the beach sand. The journaling has been done with the cork alphabet. To make it all sparkle I applied Bronze Glitz over the cork! tip: To apply stick on letters for your journaling use a see thru ruler as a guide.

July SOM - Live Out Loud

I want to send a card to a special friend today and decided this sentiment from the July Stamp of the Month was perfect stamped right on one of my favorite papers from the Florentine paperpack.
tip: when you layer papers it's nice to sand and/or sponge the edges so the layers look like they belong together.
The edges of the Cocoa CS are sanded to blend into the card base. The edges of the B&T are sponged to blend into the Cocoa CS. The July SOM available through 7/31/12 & is only $5 with your $50 order.

Birthday Party Favors with CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge

 These french fry party favor boxes are so fun and quick to make with your Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge! To cut 2 boxes from each sheet of paper cut at 8.5 inches.
Superheros are so popular with kids right now and the CTMH Superhero papers are perfect! I've made 12 of these boxes for my 4 year old nephew's birthday party next week. I used the zip strip on the front of the box for an embellishment and stamped hero with the Vintage Type stamp set.
tip: attach the zip strip with small glue dots.
