This layout uses the Ariana Green Cardstock and Blue B&T Duos from the Ariana Paper Pack (X7179B)
and features the Ariana Compliments (X7179C)
along with the layout design on page 25 of the Close to My Heart "Make It From Your Heart" Volume 1.
This layout comes together quickly and can incorporate 4"x 6" Flip Flaps so you can increase the number

Here's another great card made with Close to My Heart's newest Cricut cartridge. This cartridge will be available sometime in August. Can't wait to get my hands on it! I made this card at CTMH's Convention in Anaheim.
That's right, it's a Pop Up Card!
I'll explain more when the release gets closer.

Do you have a Bucket List?
That is a list of things you dream about doing?
Well, I do.
Here is my little reminder to keep dreaming!
I will be teaching this at my team meeting in Tacoma this week.
Just click on the picture to view larger.
I used my Art Philosophy and Artiste CTMH Cricut cartridges to cut the shapes where I will write my dream get-aways. I also used a retired paper packet called Sonoma I've been holding on to since it matches the colors in my house, . I also used the Sonoma "My Stickease". I included a doily a friend of mine gave me last year. I think it looks great in the cluster.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my decor. This frame could be used for many different occasions. Can't wait until August 1st, when I can reveal more great decor options, whether to make for yourself or give as a gift.

Can't wait to get my pictures in it.
