New card, different paper

Okay, I never had time to post this, but it is a card I made using DCWV Holiday Stack. I just loved the blue snowflake paper. I couldn't help myself and made brown snowflakes. They looked so good with the paper. I hope you like it too!

Yet another Christmas card

Yep, I made another one and yes I used Graphic 45 papers again. I almost always use my cricut expression too and this card was no exception. The Winter Woodlands cart has the holly leaf that I used to make this wreath. I used the George and Basic shapes cart on the silhouette feature to cut out a circle as a guide to put the holly leaves in a circle. Voila! But I must say this card takes time, so plan on a whole afternoon to make this baby!

Another Christmas Card

I thought I could improve on the previous card and I think I have done that. I love the smaller circle and the holly going around the circle! And as always, I love this paper line of paper by Graphic 45!

Christmas Card using Graphic 45

This is fast becoming another one of my favorite paper lines! I used the Graphic 45 Christmas Past collection and my Cricut Expression to create this card. I think it has such a days gone by feel to it, and brings back the charm of Christmas' Past.

This plaque just screamed at me to be created. My goodness, Graphic 45 did most of the work for me! The Santa they created is awesome!!

I Love Graphic 45 Papers!!!

Their designs are fantastic and I find them so easy to work with! I have already purchased their Christmas papers and can't wait to start playing with them! For this layout I cut what I wanted out of the paper designs. I also did a lot of border punching using Fiskars apron lace punch and a Martha Stewart 3-dot punch. For the frame I used Fiskars threading water border punch, but what I loved most was when I used twine and weaved it in and out of the punched circles! It worked perfectly with the papers!

Another layout using K and Co papers

This time I used the collection. These papers are great for vintage pages! I am still not used to doing those type of pages, but I think I pulled it off. I also used a lot of Tim Holtz products. Distressing inks, mask, key, and lock and the cut and dry foam that I used to apply the ink. I love his products and they worked so well with this K and Co collection!
