Artiste 3D Flower Box

This is another project we made last night in my Team Meeting.  Once again I stamplifted from Allisa Chilton.  I loved how she made the flower one color and the box another.  I decided to use our new Slate and Ruby colors.  It was so easy to put together using the Artiste Cricut cartridge.  I just sponged some color on the edges of all the cardstock and stamped the "just for you" saying from the Crafted With Love stamp set in Ruby for the tag and done.

New Close To My Heart Alcohol Markers

This is a card that I had my team make last night at our Unit Meeting.  It is a total copy of one that was made by Allisa Chilton from her blog Rocky Mountain Paper Paper Crafts which I just loved.  I wanted to use the new CTMH alcohol markers.  At our recent convention we received the Cotton Candy base and shade marker set.  I stamped the images with our Black dye based ink.  I have tried both the Archival Black and the Staz-On ink but had problems with smearing, so just stick with the basics.
I had my team color the large flower stamp with the new markers and then the leaves in New England Ivy with our old marker and Tombow Blending pen.  They all agreed that coloring with the new markers was so much more fun.  I started with coloring the whole flower with the base and then added the shading, then with the base again on only a few of the lighter spots for a medium color.  The ribbon is the Color Ready Ribbon that we sponged on New England Ivy ink.  They all had a lot of fun creating the card and thanks again to Allisa for inspiring it!

Yo-Yo Flowers Card

I used the Pemberly papers and the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to make the Yo-Yo flowers adding buttons on top.  I just love our clips too and had to add them in with a Just Blooms flower and a Mini Sparkle on top.

SeaWorld Layout with 6x6 Flip Flaps

I really wanted to use the Footloose paper for this month's scrapbooking class.  I also had the 6x6 Flip Flaps that I had wanted to use.  I realized I had the perfect pictures to use as we had just been to SeaWorld.  I used the Timeline layout sketch from the CTMH Imagine book and replaced the picture on the right hand page with the 6x6 Flip Flaps.  I think it turned out really cute and I just love the flip flaps!
