Supplies used: CTMH Scalloped Border Punch, CTMH Cardstock (Cranberry, White Daisy, Black), Silver Glitter Paper, Black Buttons, and CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.
Supplies used: CTMH White Daisy Cardstock, unknown light blue cardstock (from my 8 1/2 x 11 stash!), unknown ribbon from stash, Zig markers, CTMH Black ink, Creative Memories Circle Cutter, and CTMH Snow Friends stamp set (retired).
The Santatizer at the top is just a small bottle of hand sanitizer covered with cardstock (idea from here). The tic tac container was made from this example. Once you get started, these are easy to make and work great as stocking stuffers and small gifts.but

Supplies used: Artiste Cricut cartridge, Dotty For You papers (retired), bone folder, Fringed Phrases stamp set (retired), Crafted with Love stamp set, craft dots, and chapstick.
Challenges: Crafty Creations Challenges – Make it Yourself, Die Cuttin’ Diva’s – Anything Goes (purse diecut), Simon Says – Anything Goes
These little purses were so quick and easy to make. There wasn’t even much trial and error. By using CCR (Cricut Craft Room) I was able to see the size of the inside of the purse and know how big I should make it so that it fit. I was surprised at how perfectly it worked out!
Details: Artiste p.35 3D Object key 5 (7.556 x 5.306), p.33 Accent 3 key 3 (1.458 x 0.819)

For today’s hop, the theme is “Stamps you’ve only used once” or for many of us it’s “Stamps we have never used”!
You should either be starting here (continue until you make your way back), or coming from Judy’s Blog.
I was thrilled when Close to My Heart came out with a hexagon shape stamp set, however I hadn’t used it yet. Many times the things I am excited about somehow never get used so I chose this one because sometimes once I use a stamp set I will remember it and use it more.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: My Creations Canvas Journal (while supplies last), Pigment Inks (Slate, Cotton Candy, Indian Corn Blue, and Smokey Plum), Honeycomb Stamp Set, and Noteworthy Stamp set (retired).
Tips: When stamping on canvas choose an image that is a bit forgiving because it isn’t a solid platform like paper. Use pigment inks and make sure your stamp is well covered with the ink. Press firmly and hold for a bit. These tips helped me with this project and it turned out better than my first time stamping on canvas.
