Windblown Inchies

Having Fun with Inchies
Using the colors at Color My Heart color challenge I made some
fun inchies with the new Petite Perks: Windblown
Colors: Black, White, Whisper, and Slate
What are inchies? Small art pieces that come in inch sizes.
I used 1", 1.25", and 1.5" pieces of cardstock and B&T papers
layering them together and embellishing with mini sparkles,
sequins, and enamel gems.
What do you do with inchies? Add them to a card, a tag, a box, or a bag.
Use this card pattern and add your inchie.
 Cut a 3 X 4.5 tag. Add your inchie and cluster some random
leftovers from other projects on your tag.
Cut any box from a Cricut cartridge and add your inchie.
This box is from Art Philosophy.
Cut any bag from a Cricut cartridge and add your inchie.
This bag is from Artiste
Now head over to Color My Heart and share your Shades of Grey

Colors of Kaleidoscope

Make A Fun Gift
Inspired by Aaron Brown and her adorable gift card set I made this gift card set for my down line.  Each note card is a color from the Kaleidoscope paper pack and is trimmed with the zip strip from that paper pack. I made coordinating gift tags with the Packages, Boxes, & Tags stamp set.

The  note cards with envelopes are inserted into a clear
 gift box and wrapped with seam binding ribbon.

Assorted gift cards in an assortment of colors.

Everyday Life

Can Be An Art Form

We know life is a balancing act: Make it a beautiful one with the Everyday Life™ system designed to make the routine inspiring. From writing shopping lists and tracking menus to preserving memories and recording inspiration, Everyday Life makes staying organized an art form
Sometimes you just have the itch to create but you don't want to make a card, you don't want to print photos to scrapbook and you don't want to turn on your Cricut. So go to your CTMH planner and record the daily routine in a fun and creative way.
This is my 1st page that records my December 31st Unit Meeting, my list of "To Do" items, and the paper choices from the Charlotte paper pack of each down line for their project. I also show the thin cuts that was my "try new things" item. I even added some reinforcements so I my page doesn't fall out of the book.
