Sangria Layout

This month's scrapbooking layout features Close To My Heart's Sangria Paper Packet along with cuts from our Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge!  I plan to add family photos featuring our freshly painted red barn to this layout, hence my use of the papers featuring new colour Pomegranate; however, by flipping your papers around, you add more Poppy and Eggplant! Create this layout with me on Saturday, November 28 at 7:00!  Cost is $10.00 or $5.00 when you place a $25+ order!
Picture sizes (L-R): 3"x3", 4"x6", 4"x6", 4"x3", 4"x3"

Painting this barn is a labour of love, to say the least.  I believe the last time I painted it we only had one of our three kids!  Needless to say, it had been put off too long!

Georgie: It's not just for babies!

I mean, he's cute.  Darn cute.  But don't pigeonhole Georgie.  Flip our Georgie papers over and you've got some sophisticated and subtle paper for any occasion!    I wanted to show you Georgie two ways-- I used Mojo Monday Sketch 420 to create these cards.

Retirement Looks Good on 'Em!

Today is my Dad's birthday.  I called him this morning while he just so happened to be trimming limbs off a tree while balanced in a tractor bucket.  So, we exchanged quips about "living to see the next one" and obituaries. . . but it brings to mind the fact that retirement looks good on some people. 

And, it can look good on your projects too. 

Here in small town Millet, we have an annual Harvest Fair-- a weekend chalk full of activities for all ages and stages.  One of the main events for my kids is the bench show, which calls for submissions of everything from garden oddities and LEGO® creations to weaving and paper crafts.  While my kids bagged up second cut alfalfa, canola and barley, I went to work crafting these cards using some retired products from my stash.  Sometimes, retirement can look pretty good.

These cards show how even the same design can look totally different just by switching up the papers and embellishments!  

This Christmas card won 1st place and $3.00 in prize money ;)  It uses a current Hostess Only stamp set as well as the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  However, I had to do some fancy thinking to make it a tri-fold window rather than the intended single-fold.  The paper and embellishments are REALLY old though!  You'll have to have been a CTMH fan for a long time to recall them!  Challenge accepted?

Can you name the retired product?  You'll get 10% off your next order if you can name them!
