A cute spin on what we can do with a 6″ x 6″ card, this little mini album was created to be part of a workshop for my up-line Brigetta Jiles “Brigetta’s Creative Trends”. It might be small but it is packed with lots of places to place picture memories and journal your story. It’s a great way to showcase that visit to the pumpkin patch with your little ones, that Thanksgiving dinner with the family, or A great little keepsake for your guest to take home with them after a visit over the holiday event.
Fall is a beautiful time of year filled with color and prepares us for Thanksgiving. A time to remember all our blessings throughout the year.
This VALENTINE BASKET & CARDS was created for a color dare challenge using Glacier, Pixie, Thistle and White Daisy.
I used Cardstock and Ink colors of Glacier, Thistle, Pixie, White Daisy, and the Pink striped paper from the Kaleidoscope Paper Collection. I also used the S1601 January SOTM set, White Organza Ribbon, Sparkles, Bitty Sparkles, Thick Twines – Glacier and Thistle, and mini Brads. I created my cuts in Cricut Design Space using several of our CTMH Cartridges. Art Philosophy – images #M46CCE, #M3F851, #M3ED9A – Soiree Lettering to add the word Valentine, and sentiment inside one of the cards. Artfully Sent – #M10677A, Artiste – #M3Dad5, M3ABFC.
Creating the files required using the Cricut Design Space tools – slice, weld, attach, group and UN-group and contour. This was a fun challenge that took me out of my comfort zone of colors. It was a little challenging for me to combine these colors, but are very cute together. It was a great experience and pushed me to try colors I don’t usually prefer or use. I decided to make three different card designs while I was creating my cut files. I tried to keep this project simple which is another one of my struggles. My desire was to try and create something that would apply to different style preferences and taste, I hope you like them.

This is the third set in the series. It was for the Georgia Belle Retreat Atlanta 2015. The box contains six card and envelopes. Three cards that read Just Because and three cards that read Just For You. The Cards have a quilt pattern embossed on them as well as the envelope.
Created in Cricut Design Space. This is a cute little gift box as well as a cute ornament for your tree. I used White Pines Paper Collection from CTMH. Some of them have a beaded strap and some have ribbon. Distressing was done with Dessert Sand.
I loved this little box from the past so much I just had to bring it back and add a little twist to it. I have no idea where the Original idea of the folded box came from or just how long it’s been out there but here is just one of the ones I’ve done. This one was created and cut in Cricut Design Space. The link to the file can be gotten in the Red version previously posted called Gift Box within a Purse. I used the paper collection Sonoma, Coco Ink, and some odds and ends for embellishing from Close To My Heart. The paper collection is retired. It was my favorite collection that year so I decided to use it for this project, I’m glad I did. I love how I was able to fussy cut some of the pieces to embellish it to give it even more interest and depth.

This is my first attempt at the Card in a Box. I made this for my granddaughters 8th. birthday using the New Revised Z Fold Card -IN-A-Box by Deb Valder of stampladee.com I hope she likes it. I had to make a 1/4″ deep envelope for it because it is so thick. It is made with the Lollydoodle Paper Collection.
This is a tiny 2″ gift box done from the Ivy Lane Paper Collection. Very simple for it is so small and doesn’t need a lot of embellishing. It was quick and easy and only took about 35 minutes to make. I used the Cards and More Basket pattern to create the box and then embellished it. Remember to get the Cards and More Basket pattern from Inking From The Heart to make this. I just made it a lot smaller and left off the side panels that are in the full version of the basket. It is perfect for just a few pieces of candy or a little trinket of sorts as a thank you to someone.
Madeline Morcelo’s pattern “Cards and More Basket” is a great pattern. You can find it on her blog Inking From The Heart. She does such beautiful design work, I love her work so much. These are a few of my versions of the pattern. The Black and White are done from the For Always Paper Collection. The Red, Black and White one was done for a teacher Anita Shackelford and The Blue one was done for the other teacher Joan Knight. They were the teachers at the Retreat my husband and I attended in April. They give so much to us in product and in knowledge that I wanted to do something nice for them. They were liked and a big hit at the retreat. The pattern is so easy, be sure and go to Madeline’s blog and purchase the pattern. It is only a $5.00 pattern, you will love it. It has great instructions and very easy to follow.
