The January stamp of the month Bloom and Grow S1801 is absolutely gorgeous, I love all of the sentiments. You can buy this stamp set for $27.00 or for only $7.50 with a purchase of $75.00 during the moth of January. I hope my projects gives you lots of ideas to produce your own special creations.
My main passion is scrapbooking but I also love card making and other paper crafts. This layout was a labour of love, my niece has longed for a baby for many years and finally in 2015 she had a beautiful baby girl. I was fortunate enough to visit her in the Bahamas shortly after Mia was born and was one of the first few people to meet her. Pattern 22 from the Make It From Your Heart Volume 3 was the inspiration for this layout. I used papers from the Adventure Paper pack Z3351 and it complimented these photos perfectly. The flowers were cut using the Flower Market Cricut cartridge Z3285, and I used the Artiste cartridge for the frame for the "Let Love Grow" sentiment. I was really please with the look of the stamped heart, the small leaves looked beautiful around the Bloom Where You Are Planted sentiment.
I had such fun creating this bag, I had the intention of making a pretty girlie bag but at the last minute decided to work out of my comfort zone and make this steampunk themed bag. The "Grow Your Own Magic" sentiment worked great. These bags are cheap to buy from the $2.00 shop and this allows you to personalize them however you like. The gears and the wing was cut using the Artiste Cricut cartridge, the stamps are from a Halloween set that unfortunately is no longer available. The buttons are also from my stash of discontinued products. CTMH are always bringing out beautiful new products, but I always have a few items left over from past collections and you never know when they will come in handy.
This card is called a Z fold card, I used one of the cards from the Value Pack X254 this pack is so economical you get 50 cards and envelopes for just $23.00. You fold the front of the card in half from right to left then add what ever shape front panel you desire as decoration, a heart or circle would look great as well. The card uses papers from the Enchanted Fundamental Paper pack,Z3352 and I used Pomegranate and Olive Inks for the stamping. Place a piece of white cardstock on the inside to add a greeting. Adding a few gems really finishes off the card.
