Welcome to the Featured Paper Silver&Gold Blog Hop!
Welcome to our Featured Paper Blog Hop! We will be showcasing items from our Silver & Gold Paper Pack all created by talented Close to my Heart consultants. If you are visiting from Erica Haskin blog then you are on the right track.
I love Christmas! I like the bright colors the fun gatherings and the traditions of giving gifts.
I have many people on my gift list. I love to give simple usable items.
Treats are nice but who really needs the calories? This year I will be focusing on little personal items. Items we can all use but don’t break the bank!
Cricut Design Space is so simple and fast to manipulate my flower petals before cutting, I love the visual screen. I save so much paper. It is all about the paper!!
After cutting I carefully pull the shapes off the matt. Then I sponge each leaf and use a variety of stylus or paper shaping tools to emboss the veins and shape the leafs into a 3d look. I also use liquid glass to adhere the flowers together. Here is a photo of my supplies.
You will have a lot of fun manipulating and forming the petals of these really pretty poinsettia flowers. Don’t forget to add the pretty gold pearls.
Last but not least I made the banner using the Close to my Heart Art booking Cricut cartridge. Using design space allows you to space the letters exactly where you would like them.
These poinsettias remind me of living in San Luis Obispo, California where they almost grow wild. Many people have plants growing up the side of the house. Unfortunately, I can not seem to make these flowers grow so Paper flowers I have plenty.
Here is a photo of what this wreath looks like on my front door against the wood grain.The Beary Christmas collection and Beary Christmas coordinating Cardstock are so economical. I still have plenty of papers left for cards and even a mini scrapbook stay tuned for more. Beary Christmas collection. I hope you try this fun project!
Thanks for visiting! Please let me know if you try this project I would love to see your photos.
