Mutli-frame dry erase, chalk board

While roaming though blogs and other  idea pages, I happen to catch a glance at a picture, (and I am so sorry I don't remember who or where I saw this)  where the person a taken a multi frame and created a dry erase/chalk board out of it and I thought this was really cool, I happen to have one of these picture frames that my sister-in-law had given me for christmas one yr and I had yet to use it, well I pulled it out,  the Dreamin' paper pk and the new CTMH chalkboard paper, and worked on this most of the day today, well I had to stop and empty the washer and dryer a couple of times. I also used the new CTMH chalk marker, I cut my chalkboard paper at 4 x 6,  it is adhesive-backed so I put it directly on the front of the glass so that I could write and erase on it.  I used both of the CTMH cricut cartridges, letters are cut at 3/4", dragonflies are cut at 1 1/2" and 2", butterfly is cut at 2", the roses flowers were cut at 2". I hope you like it.

New Artiste jigsaw cards

Good Saturday afternoon, hope everyone is having a nice weekend, so wanted to show you a quick card I did last nite,  the Artiste cartridge has a couple of jigsaw puzzles on it and I just loved the heart, well over on FB last nite I saw where Laura has used 2 different papers from the new Avolea kit to make her a couple of cards well, I loved that idea and had to pull out the new Dakota papers and make mine. You get 2 cards when you cut the hearts out in 2 different papers, the puzzle pieces are put on with bonding memories glue but on the first card the pieces that have the design are put on using 3D foam tape, and on the second card the barn red pieces are put on with the foam tape.  I love how they came out. Hope you like them.

CTMH Artiste Cartridge

So I spent yesterday and this morning playing with the New Artiste Cartridge and I have to say CTMH has done it again, I love this cartridge. Yesterday I pulled out some old cardstock and just cut the 3D shapes to see how they would turn out and also to see the biggest sizes I could cut, tody I used it to make cards and a little card holder, it was so much fun, and also the Artiste collection comes with the 3 stamps sets so I had to play with thse too.    All three cards were made using the Clementine paper pack and the new colors of cs. Hope you like them. I will list all products at the end.
                                               This first one uses the cut from pg 35 and it's accent 1

This next one is gift card holder, love it now done in one quick cut,  it is pg 53 cut at 5"

This is the inside.

not sure why this turned out blurry, sorry,  the flower is cut from pg 55 and is cut at 2.50" it has a little blackstone in the center, the accents on each side are cut at 1.50" and are on pg 43, love this card because it has a surprise inside. I also sprayed the flower with a mixture of pearl paint and alcohol, the alcohol dries faster than water.

this is the inside, love the hello,  this card is on pg 51

This next item is a little magazine holder, it is on pg 47 and cut at 6" and is the cutest little thing.

After I finished putting it together I placed all the cards I made today in it, it is a wonderful card holder and would make a great gift, fill it with cards and wrap it up.
