Cricut Flower Card

This is just a quick card using the paper and stamp set from Ivy Lane Workshop on the Go from CTMH. These are my very first attempt at creating the flower from the Atriste cartridge page 54. It was super easy- roll them up and add some Liquid Glue! I think they turned out super cute!
Here is a video on how to make them for yourself.

Enjoy! Chris

Starburst Card

I have been seeing starburst cards all over the place these days. So I set out to make one of my own. It is a card for my sister's birthday today! Shhh! Luckily I don't live far away so I will be dropping it off today. But I thought I would share it with all of you first.
I made it with the Close to my Heart- "Balloon Ride Papers". Here is the link to all of the products on my website.
Sorry for the short post but I have to deliver the card- Haha!
Enjoy! Chris

Candy anyone??

I needed a few quick boys birthday gifts for this weekend. I had ALOT going on but I cannot resist anything handmade. So off to Pinterest I headed. I am not sure how many times I can say I LOVE Pinterest!!!!!
So I started with a few basics, hot glue gun, foam block, a pile of candy and chocolate bars. This is what it looked like before.

I was originally going to have the bouquet coming out of a sand bucket but didn't like the way it looked. But here is the end result.
After the 13 year old recipient took his gift home this is the text I got from his Mom...
"Such a cool gift. Thank you so much. I have to tell you I've never had one of my kids say we need to take a picture of this present before we open it. Then he sent it his grandma to see! Truly-not typical behaviour." I think he liked it, that made my day.
Enjoy! Chris
