Close to my Heart Treat Bags

You don’t need Halloween-themed paper to make a Halloween project that is located on the Close to my Heart blog. The toothy grins on these treat bags were cut by the Cricut® Artiste cartridge and mounted on colorful sheets from various Paper Fundamentals assortments. Make your own by cutting out the box shape seen on page 75 of the Cricut® Artiste booklet and trimming the top edges in a jagged fashion. Fill them with wrapped treats of your choice and set them out for all to enjoy. Aren’t these bags super?

My Crush Holiday Happenings Mini Album

I had so much fun altering the Close to my Heart My Crush Holiday Happenings Book. I used the Close to my Heart Yuletide Carol Workshop on the Go and Complements as well My Crush Holiday Happenings Badge Buttons and Assortment. I did fussy cut the roses out of the Yuletide Carol paper to use in the book. I had so much doing this book and many of my customers are doing this as a project! This is a picture intensive entry. I am very curious of what you think of the album.DSC03246 DSC03247 DSC03248 DSC03249 DSC03250 DSC03251 DSC03252 DSC03253 DSC03254 DSC03255 DSC03256 DSC03257 DSC03258 DSC03259 DSC03260 DSC03261 DSC03262 DSC03263 DSC03264 DSC03265 DSC03266 DSC03267 DSC03268 DSC03269 DSC03270 DSC03271 DSC03272 DSC03273 DSC03274 DSC03275 DSC03276 DSC03277 DSC03278 DSC03279 DSC03280 DSC03281 DSC03282 DSC03283 DSC03284 DSC03285 DSC03286 DSC03287 DSC03288 DSC03289 DSC03290 DSC03291
