A Little Creativity

WOW! Several weeks have passed since my last blog post. Things seem to always be so hectic no matter how hard I try to keep things simple. Such is life, I suppose. Time definitely is flying by. It’s hard to believe that we are almost at the end of another year.

I’ve created a few cards recently and also a door prize item, and I wanted to share them with you. The first two cards are using our Clear Cards as the base and I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss the base. For the "It's a Girl" card, I used MyReflections Twitterpated, MyAcrylix stamp sets used were: Playful Fluorishes and Sweet Baby. For "Natalie's" card, I used Stardust, which -- unfortunately -- is no longer available. I REALLY love how these two cards turned out. They are so different and definitely a conversation piece.

The next item is the item I created as a door prize during a Multi-Vendor Holiday Open House I participated in this past weekend. I got the idea from one of my fellow Close to my Heart consultants and it was SOOO easy to make! I used a rectangular hinged window tin and then created a “folder” for it using Cranberry Cardstock, which I also embossed using my Cuttlebug. I used our MyAcrylix A Sip for the coffee cup and MyAcrylix Tannenbaum for the sentiment. Other paper used is from our MyReflections Mistletoe collection. I just LOVE this paper for Christmas. Can’t wait to put this year’s pictures on the Mistletoe Workshop on the Go!

Finally, today is one of my AWESOME boss’ birthday and I created this card last night. It is using our MyAcrylix Party Pennants, MyAcrylix Royal Birth and scraps of paper from MyReflections Hooligans and MyReflections Olivia. I also used MyAcrylix The Present for the sentiment that I stamped on the inside of the card and our new Blue/Green Sparkles. I really love the colors of this card. I used the sample from Page 63 of our Autumn/Winter Idea Book. The pattern is On the Edge from Wishes – although, I rotated mine to be landscape.

I'm sure I've left out some of the items I’ve used on these projects. Please don’t hesitate to ask me any questions about any of them. I hope you enjoyed the little bit of creativity I’ve had recently. Next on the agenda is to clean up my scrapbooking room as it looks like a bomb went off in it! HA! Signs of creativity!! LOVE IT!
