CTMH Cricut Artfully Sent Happy Birthday Wishes


Close to My Heart
Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.
Birthday Card
This card was created using the Close to My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut art cartridge and the Cricut Craft Room. I used the Scene card and pocket card page 26 (hand book). Happy Birthday Wishes Scene card page 29 (hand book). Sentiment CTMH stamp Artiste collection. In the Cricut Craft Room for the inside of the card I used the hide contour feature taking out the Happy Birthday Wishes and the cut line for the pocket card then I added the frog cut. I cut the frog out using green glitter paper. I repeated the frog cut using pink glitter paper to cut the crown. The crown cuts first so I stopped the Cricut cut after the crown had cut. For the castle I hide the contours to cut out a solid mat. The castle was cut twice using silver and pink glitter paper. After assembling the castle I used pop dots to adhere the castle on the card.

Graphic 45 Place in Time

Place in Time Calendar Photo Book 
I created this album using the paper collection Place in Time from Graphic 45 12 x 12 &; 8 x 8 paper packs, 6 brown paper bags, black 12 x 12 card, chipboard to cover the book, paper doilies, Kaisercraft crochet doilies (front cover)  lace border punch, lace with ribbon, black lace, Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations die (clock), Tim Holtz Distress ink black soot by Ranger,Tim Holtz Idea-ology Faucet knob, embossing powder clear, flowers and leaves, black pearl flourish, chipboard elements from the collection, metal book corners painted with Patina paints and adhesives Scotch quick dry and Wondertape.  
Each of the six pocket has a double sided photo mat insert for the month of January, March, May, July, September and November. For the months of February, April, June, August, October and December I made a double sided tag for each. To make the pocket for these tags I used Tim Holtz Alterations On the Edge die Brackets and Sizzix Card Edges 2 die.
Because I live in Australia our seasons, celebrations etc fall at different times of the year. So with that in mind you will notice some of the month themes from the collection appear in different months in this album. For example in this album I used July's paper for November and January's papers for June.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed viewing this post.

In the larger pocket there is a photo mat.To create the tags and the photo frames I used the Slice Elite by Making Memories. I used the 'Salutations' design card to create the tags for the small envelopes I used the 'Grandma's Attic' design card to make the photo frames. For the large tag I used the 'Basic Elements' design card. I used a Sizzix original die 'Library Card Pocket' for the small envelopes. To embellish the album I used lace ribbon, flowers, chipboard pieces, lace rub-ons, bakers twine, lace border punch and a Kaisercraft stamp set Miss Match-Bingo Cards.

Rough Ashlars

In loving memory

Robert William Banks

7th January 1926 - 3rd January 2012

To create this scrapbook layout I used 'Times & Seasons' paper pack from Echo Park. I also used A C (American Crafts) cardstock for the base, tag and for embossing (red card) and ribbon. The embossing folder I used is from Tim Holtz Alterations. All the elements are from the paper pack. Just a note of interest - The photo I used was taken at Toombul Brisbane on the 25.9.1962 during band rehersal. Robert (Bob) Banks played the drums and melocida.
