A Cut Above Card Kits

How fun are these cards, I was able to make one sample from each kit at the CTMH Convention this year.  They come with everything you need to make the cards except the stamp sets so that you can order as many kits as you need and one the one stamp set.  They are so cute and so quick, which makes the doubly awesome!

Seaside Paper Layout


I still need to add photos to this layout that I got to make at the CTMH convention, but I just had to show it anyway, it is made using the Seaside papers, aren't they so beautiful!  Then adding a little bling with the Gold Shimmer Trim and Gold Sequins, love it!

Thank You Swing Card


This is a swing card that I also made at convention using the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.  We just stamped a background and the thank you, the wreath around the sentiment was also cut out of the Artfully Sent cartridge.  Added a couple of sequins and it was done, super easy!
