This is the Christmas Card Cut Above Kit from Close to my Heart. The Cut Above Kits are so great because Close to my Heart has already designed the card and cut out everything you need. The Christmas Card Kit makes a 5×7 card. So that gives you a great size for sending out this beautiful Christmas Card. It comes with a gorgeous card base and envelope. I have designed alot of Christmas Cards, but never with such beautiful Glitter Snowflake paper like this.
Have I mentioned that I LOVE the NEW Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge exclusive to Close to my Heart? I DO!!! I am a card maker and love making cards. This is the PERFECT Cricut Cartridge for anyone to wants to make cards. There are several different types of cards you can make: Pop-up, Scene, Sentiment, Sleeve, and Pocket Cards. This Cricut Cartridge does all the work for you. The book even tells you what size to cut it out and how to put the Pop-up cards together.
This week I received in the mail my NEW Artfully Sent Cricut Collection that Close to my Heart just released. I checked it all out for you. So I made a video that shows all the product you get and also includes some tips on how to use this Cricut Cartridge and books.
Here is what the Artfully Sent Cricut Collection includes:
Watch the video to see so much more.
I absolutely love one of Close to my Heart’s
new products called Cut Above.
What is so great about it is…
-CTMH did all the hard work: designed, cut out & ready to put together
-all I had to do was stamp the sentiment and adhere it together
-Everything was already cut out
-Even foam adhesive was included to pop up the sentiment
For this project I purchased:
Flower Card created using Stamps, Ink, and Copic Markers
This was a card I made a few months ago but never shared it with you.
It was make using a Reward Stamp Set that I was able to purchase for Hosting Close to my Heart party in the 2013-2014 idea book. It’s called Enjoy the Little Things. (Sorry it is no longer available.)
The reason I want to share this project with you is to show stamping techniques and inspire you to create your own Simple Creations.
Artfully Sent Cricut Collection
Today Close to my Heart announced that the NEW Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge is available to order. As soon as I got the email I got online and order mine. So far I own 2 of the 4 Cricut Cartridges that are exclusive to Close to my Heart. They are the only Cricut Cartridges that I use right now. They are loaded with 700+ images to cut out. When you purchase a Cricut Cartridge from Close to my Heart you get so much. They are sold in collections.
Each Cricut collection comes with:
1 Cricut Cartridge (loaded with 700+ images to cut)
3 Stamp Sets that coordinate with the cuts on the Cricut Cartridge
(Its so nice to be able to cut out shapes that fit the stamps.
I can cut out a shape on my Cricut instead of cutting it out
by hand with scissors, that fits the stamps perfectly.)
Paper or Chipboard
Life Guard Shirt
I created some shirts using Iron On Vinyl I purchased from Expressions Vinyl.
These were created to use at our church to promote the sermon series. The shirts were both athletic shirts. The tags said not to iron the shirt, so I put a thin piece of fabric over the shirt before ironing. I was so impressed the first time I used Iron On Vinyl. It was fairly easy to work with and I loved the finish product. I would recommend practicing with it first.
Do you own a Cricut Machine?
Do you have a limited about of money to spend on crafting products? I know that I have a lot of Cricut Cartridges that I don’t use. Of course I waited till they were $15-$20 to purchase them but they are just sitting on my shelf unused. Do you wish that you had 1 or 2 Cricut Cartridges that you used for everything? I found some. The Cricut Cartridges that Close to my Heart sells are jam packed with images that you can use for everyday projects. Most of them are based on the type of crafter you are but you can still find cuts for every project.
Welcome to my NEW Simple Creations Blog.
It has a NEW look. I switched from using Blogger to WordPress for my Blog.
My goal is to teach you how to create and inspire you to make your own projects. I primarily use Paper, Stamps, & the Cricut.
I sell Close to my Heart products so most of my posts will be made with those items. I will link the products in each post. So if you see a Close to my Heart product you would like to create with, just click on the name and it will send you to my store to purchase it for yourself.
If you have any questions about projects I create, feel free to comment on the post or email me. I truly love teaching others to create. If there is a type of project you would like me to work on, send me an email.
This year both of my girls are in school all day, so I plan to be very involved with my Blog. I also plan to make alot more videos. I know I learn better by visually seeing a project made. If you like what you see, be sure to follow me. That way you don’t miss any project. See all my Soical Media buttons at the top of my Blog. Also, subscribe to receive updates.
Projects coming soon…
