Holiday Goodie Gable box


Hello fellow crafters! Looks like we all survived 12/12/12! :-) I actually participated in an online class by Big Picture Scrapbooking and Stacy Julian called 12/12/12! We had a blast!  You can also view this project on Sheila's blog: SHE'S A SASSY LADY and over at CRICUT IS CLOSE TO MY HEART.

Today I chose to make a cute gable box from the Close to My Heart Artiste cartridge. If you don't already have a CTMH consultant, feel free to visit my website: www.ctmh.com/jenniebarger!


Here are the details:
This box is located on pg. 37 of the cartridge handbook and on pg. 7 in the instruction book.
I sized the box on my Gypsy at 4.41"H.
The tag is also on pg. 37 and is sized at 4"H.
Paper is from the Simple Stories Handmade Holiday Collection (which I LOVE!)
Megan Elizabeth Sparkle Lightz
"Merry & Bright" are cut from a clear overlay in the Simple Stories collection.

This collection might just be my favorite Holiday set!

Some views of the box in progress:



Ready to decorate

Love these Sparkle Lightz! They can be purchased at Above Rubies Studio.


All put together! I think this box would be a great way to gift some homemade candies!


Thanks for stopping by today! Take the time this season to enjoy your families and friends!

Have a blessed holiday season!

25 Days of Christmas - Day 6

Hello everyone! I hope you're having as much fun as I am during this 25 Days of Christmas celebration over at PAPER CRAFTING WORLD! If you haven't been over there yet, you really need to get over there and see all the wonderfulness! :-) Today's theme is all about the blessed holiday of Easter! I chose to make some cards to send to family and friends.

These cards are pretty basic but I used the George and Basic Shapes cartridge to cut out the circles on the card fronts and the oval on the insides.  I used some stamps that I bought from Cornish Heritage Farms. They are perfect for Easter cards!

25 Days of Christmas - Day 5

Hello everyone and welcome to Day 5 of the 25 Days of Christmas over at PAPER CRAFTING WORLD! You really must head over there because there is so many wonderful and festive holiday projects being created each day!! Today's theme is all about baking and/or Gingerbread so I decided to make a Christmas Baking Checklist to keep track of what I need to make all of our wonderful Christmas goodies! I simply grabbed a clipboard that I had at home and added a few Cricut cuts and Voila'! :-)

Christmas Baking Checklist - cut from Birthday Cakes cartridge
Cookies - cut from the Gingerbread Seasonal cartridge
I laminated a piece of green notebook paper with my Your Story so that I could use a dry erase marker on it to write my list.
