Trimming the Tree

Finally with less than a week to go before Christmas we got our tree put up!

Because this is the first year with cats in the house, the girls decided that it would be best to not put any ornaments on the tree, only lights.  So we have a very simple tree this year, adorned only with white lights and this paper star that I made with the Artiste Cricut Cartridge. 

I found the design and instructions for this star at my new favourite website  Cricut with Heart.  If you have either of the Close to My Heart Cricut Cartridges or are thinking of getting one of them you must check out this site.  They post a new project/item each day made using either the Art Philosophy or Artiste Cricut Cartridge.    

If you are interested in these great Cricut Cartridges, just send me an e-mail to get more information, set up an appointment to get a demo, or you can order on-line by using the Shop Now link on the right side of this page.

Time to get back to making lists and enjoying the beautiful snowfall out my window!

Have a wonderful day,

Visit with Santa

Picture is from a few years ago, one of my favourites of Santa and the girls.  I was very happy to finally get it on a scrapbook page.  I hope you like it as much as I do.

 I created this page for a Demo I did at a recent crop. The paper strip down the left side and the matting we created using plain kraft cardstock and inking it with Ruby Ink using one of the Close to My Heart Texture Tools. Poinsettia is Ruby Cardstock cut out using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  Tag and Leaves are Olive Cardstock leaves from Art Philosophy and Tag and Title from Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  Background is Ponderosa Pine Cardstock. Used one of the nifty Foundry Pin Clips to highlight the year.
