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.

Simple Hello Card by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Patterned Pennants Stamp Set, and inks (Lagoon, Honey, Pear, and Sunset).

I’ve had this card in my head since I got this stamp set.  I thought about adding a couple sparkles by the “hello” but decided in the end to leave it a stamped-only card.  This is a very simple card!  The colors can be changed up as well as the sentiment for many different looks.
