I also used my garage sale to see if I had any neighbors who like to paper craft. I took the plunge and became a consultant for Close to my Heart. Yes, you can buy from me on-line (upper left corner); but what I really want to do is have crops, workshops, and classes in my home. I absolutely love the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and I think that was the biggest selling point for me. And, I have been a stay-at-home-mom for 15 years. Don’t get me wrong, I love that “job”, but I am in need of a little self-steam. Hence, I take on a home based business. Please wish me luck; my husband gave me that, “you’re crazy, this won’t last” look.
Well, on to my most recent project – Mother’s Day Card Flowerpots. I have seen these all over the Internet and boards as of late, and thought they would be perfect for mother’s day cards.
I usually do most of my designs on paper first. Then I go into the Cricut Craft Room or Design Studio and find what I have that can be manipulated to make my project.
The flowerpot itself is the cupcake image on AP with a welded rectangle and scallop added. Copy the welded flowerpot and flip the copy and weld the two bottoms together.
I actually used the Art Philosophy cart to most of the pieces on them. I did use Walk in my Garden for the leaves on the violets, however.I hand cut the
tags for the front and the inside and added a little stand in the back (also cut by hand).
Supplies: I used some of My Creative Time stamps and a few others as well as, ribbon, floss, buttons, puffy paint (yellow centers), eyelets, and tape. Cricut Craft Room (it’s free), Art Philosophy cart and Walk in My Garden Cart.
This was really super easy project and I love how they turned out. I used my computer to type the “Happy Mother’s Day” inside.
God Bless and Happy Scrapin’
|I think they look so cheery!
