Santa-tizer bottle by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Scalloped Border Punch, CTMH Cardstock (Cranberry, White Daisy, Black), Silver Glitter Paper, Black Buttons, and CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.

TicTac Snowman Container by Wendy Kessler

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

Artbooking Layout Series – Freedom 1

Sweet Baby Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Artbooking Cricut Collection, CTMH Cardstock (Sweet Leaf, White Daisy, Cotton Candy, & Black), unknown patterned paper, Kaisercraft Rhinestones, CTMH Cotton Candy ink, CTMH stamp set, Tattered Angels Pearl Glitter Mist, and Zig Markers.

I used the basic layout from the right side of the Freedom Layout but changed up the title (I used Sweet from page 85).  You can’t see from my picture but I used Glitter Mist on the white overlay and it looks so pretty in person.  I added a stamping to the background of the stars.  I can’t remember the stamp set I used but any background or pattern would work.  The punched out green star also fit perfectly within the overlay to add focus to my title.

Chapstick Holder – Purse

Chapstick Purses by Wendy Kessler

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)

Love This Card

Love This card by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: Love This stamp set, Cardstock (Kraft, Juniper, Ruby, Colonial White), Juniper ink, Saddle ink, Bronze Glitter Glitz, and Bronze Shimmer Trim.  Pinspiration from this card.

I made this card featuring the Love This stamp set for a swap.  I had a really hard time at first and regretted my choice of stamp set.  Although I loved the set, I realized I just wasn’t any good at coloring and needed to come up with another option.  This was it!  It’s a nice flat card that will be great for mailing and was easy to make.
