Cricut boxes

This cute little french fry box was made with the new CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  I stuffed it with some yummy little Lavender Shortbread squares, a square of chocolate, and a chocolate straw.  I used the new cardstock weight patterned papers from the Sonoma collection. 


These are the little pillow boxes that are the perfect size for a gift card.  The paper collection is Wonderland.

Had A Great Saturday

Spent a wonderful day on Saturday with friends and family, doing something that I love - paper crafting.  Just thought I would share a few of the goodies created by my friends.

Dreamin' Layout and Card Workshop

Decided to do something a little different with this workshop.  This one was created using Close To My Heart's Dreamin' paper collection.  Instead of being all layouts, it contains six 2-page layouts and 2 each of 6 card designs.

Studio J Blog


Wow!  I just discovered the blog created by Close To My Heart especially for Studio J online scrapbooking.  It is packed with information, examples, videos, and a gallery to help get started with Studio J.  Even those who have used it before will find lots of tips on how to take online scrapbooking to the next level.  There's a post that I need to go back and check out that discusses digital photo editing, and one with tips for photographing fireworks. 

I do love the traditional paper scrapbooking, but I have gazillion digital photos that I need to get onto pages and into books.  This might help me get closer to being caught up.  Notice I said "closer to"?  Not crazy enough to think I will actually ever get them all scrapbooked, but I can see where this will put me a whole lot closer.

Wander over and see if this might be a good solution for you too  -   Studio J Blog
