Simple yellow and kraft cards

These were pretty easy to make and I loved incorporating a doily into the card design. I think I found this idea on Pinterest. I used some trendy twine on the buttons (retired) that are from Close To My Heart as well as the stamp set Banner Wishes.

Christmas pillow boxes

This was a crazy order. I made a few of these and posted them on facebook to see if I could generate enough likes to make a couple hundred for the upcoming craft fair and when all was said and done I ended up making over 600. Needless to say I didn't make any for the craft fair because I was sick of them at that point! These are from art Philosophy cut at 4-1/4. I wrapped some trendy twine around the middle and added a little white or cream square cut from George and Basic Shapes at 1 inch (I think) and then stamped the sentiment from a Close To My Heart set called Santa Claus

4th of July garland!

I sewed up this fun paper garland the other day. It is super easy to do I have made a valentines garland and a st patricks day one too. stars were cut from George and Basic Shapes at about 2-1/2 and the rocket and firework was cut from Stand and Salute around 3. I cant remember and I cant check because Cricut Design space is weird and I still haven't learned all the tricks like the Gypsy.
