Now You Can Create This Project!

Thank you to everyone who contacted me about my 
Humble and Kind Decor Project.
That first version was a bit smaller and needed a custom
 frame size.

Since I've had a number of inquiries on making the piece, I decided to create a slightly larger size to fit a standard 8" x 10" frame and a guide/file with step by step directions and five photos so you can create your own!  

I'm excited to offer TWO options for you to create this project!

1. Purchase the $5 Project Guide/File.  See Add to Cart button

2. Place a $25 order on my website and I'll send you the Project Guide/File FREE!

* With both options, you will receive the Project Guide/File emailed to you.

The PDF guide/file includes 3 pages of directions and photos with close up detail for ease of coloring and assembly.

The PDF has a link to my Design Space file for the Cricut Cuts.  You must own the Close To My Heart Flower Market and Artistry Cartridges to be able to use the file, as well as the Cricut Explore or Maker machine.  The PDF also has the shapes and sizes if you prefer to use your physical Flower Market and Artistry cartridges.

CTMH Supplies Used:  
Stamp Sets: Love Your Life, Jennifer's Hand
Cardstock: White Daisy, Canary, Sweet Leaf, Bashful, Glacier, Fern
Patterned Paper: Chelsea Garden

Always Stay Humble and Kind

 Hi there!  When my Stamp Club met last week, we made this!  
I always love creating our projects together whether they are cards, scrapbook layouts, gift boxes, or tags, but I really LOVE doing home decor projects best!  

Humble and Kind is a great Tim McGraw song and I especially like the line I used on this project. When I saw the April Stamp of the Month set Color Your Life, I instantly thought of 
Always Stay Humble and Kind!

When designing this project, I drew some inspiration from a recent blog post on Make It From Your Heart. Take a look at their beautiful scrapbook page here!

A big thank you to my artsy woodman/hubby for building the frames for us!  They measure 6" x 8.5" inside, 7.5" x 10" outside.  After a good coat of white paint, I sanded them for a lightly distressed look.   

Here's a close up of the pretty flowers made with the 
CTMH Artistry Cricut Cartridge 
and the leaves with the CTMH Flower Market Cartridge. 
The letters for Humble were were cut with the Block Alphabet Thin Cuts which are becoming a fast favorite of mine!

Take a close look at this April Stamp of the Month set and 
it's potential!  
Only available for 2 weeks more weeks!  

Here's a card I shared earlier this month with  
 S1804 Color Your Life   The border stamps in the set are FUN!

Products used:
CTMH Artistry and Flower Market Cricut Cartridges
Cardstock: White Daisy, Bashful, Canary, Glacier, Sweet Leaf, Fern
Patterned Paper: Chelsea Garden
Watercolor Paints and Brushes for splattered background
Watercolor Pencils
Celebrate Card: See April 6th Post

April Stamp of the Month

I love a versatile Stamp of the Month just like
 like this one! Color Your Life

It was fun thinking outside the box for this card as I
created a striped background with the border designs and 
used smaller stamps to create a border.
And as a bonus, it was surprisingly quick!

Hope you can see the Bashful Shimmer on the flowers and the embossing on Celebrate.
For a basically black and white card, the touches of pink and gloss from the embossing make it simple, but pretty.


Take a look at the set and see all the potential! 
Stay tuned! I'll be share more fun ways to use this set throughout the month.  

Supplies used:
Black and Blossom Cardstock
Flower Market CTMH Cricut Cartridge for the 3 little flowers
