April blog hop





Welcome to this month's blog hop. Have fun hopping from one blog to the next, just look for the highlighted name at the bottom of each post and keep hopping until you get back here.

This month I am sharing a Wedding duo that has just the right words.  They are only available this month, you will find them on Page 56 Seasonal expressions #1.  Sold separately but go together so well.  New Two B1586  and  To a Special Couple B1585.




I made this into a 5x7 card and embossed it in silver on Gimme me Some Sugar designer paper.  (Doesn't show up to well.) Water colored the flowers and added some pearls.  The ribbon is from the Basic Fundamentals pg 47 in Annual catalog. The heart border is a Thin cut found on pg 96 Annual catalog.



Now it's time to hop over to the very talented Michelle and see what she has to share.


PS   Every Friday this month is a sale so go to your Consultant's website to check out the great deals.

March blog hop


Welcome to the Joyful Stars monthly blog hop.  We hope to inspire you with our creations.  I know every month I get inspired to recreate from our talented group of stampers. So, look for the highlighted name at the bottom of this post and hop to the next person and keep hopping till you get back to here.  

I just realized that our next hop in April will be after Easter. So Happy Easter everyone.

We have a wonderful Easter Stamp set that I have been working on and I hope someone in this blog features it.  I will be at the Oaks Expo this weekend and I will have it on display.

We also have a terrific sale on thin cuts this month and I choose to show you the fun thin cuts from Stargazer paper.........spaceman, rocket, telescope, stars, etc. 

 I was inspired by two people on Pinterest  The second card Vicki Wizniuk and the 4th card AJ Crafty Creations.


This card is using thin cuts to cut a hole in the card for the rocket and the spaceman is cut out over the edge of the card. You can see part of the inside of the card.  




This card was made for a gift card, I showed this card at Christmas time. When you open the card, money or a gift card pops up.


This card I took a 3" circle and daubed different colors of blue on it and splattered it with white watercolor. Love the look.





This card really shows the paper in the Stargazer pack, I did the same 3" circle, but this time I used more colors and circle stencil and some white daisy ink and some white watercolor splashes .



I hope you enjoyed going to outerspace with me.  Now it's time to hop over to my friend Betty's blog and enjoy what you see.

January 2018 Joyful Stars Blog hop

Happy New Year!
Welcome to our monthly Joyful Stars blog hop.
We have some beautiful things to show and hope to inspire you to
create.  With this new year we also have a new Seasonal catalog.
You will find it packed full of ideas. So make sure you get a copy from your consultant.
On my previous post I shared one of our new die cuts and today I would like to share a project that I gave as gifts for Christmas.
I made this one for a friend to go with her kitchen.
I was inspired by Michelle to make these, you can see her project she shared a couple of months ago. Thanks Michelle for sharing and being part of this blog.  
I cut everything with the Cricut, some of the flowers are 3-D This happens to be a 10x10" canvas, but any size would work. I bought 10 in a pack and they were very inexpensive. I added some color on the canvas to take away the stark white.  Some I did with watercolor and some I used an ink pad and wiped it across the canvas.  



Michelle's design





Now hop to my friend Krista's blog and I'm sure you love what you see. Keep hopping till you get back here, Here is a list in case you get lost.


God Bless your New Year!

Gift card holder

I made this gift card holder using our new Die cut .  Look below and see the inside and how the gift card fits perfectly inside the box.  This could be made into a purse or change and shape and it could be masculine.  
It can also open from the top or the bottom.


This is one of newest die cuts, the box is perfect for a gift card.  You get a rectangle and an oval as a bonus.
Close to my heart also has a stamp set that goes with this die.  
Happy New Year!   Go to my website and order anything and get a free Seasonal catalog.

November Blog hop





Hi everyone, Welcome to our monthly Joyful Stars blog hop.  We always have a lot to show you and everyone is working on different projects.  I hope this hop inspires you to make some Thanksgiving cards or Christmas cards, layouts, gifts or even simple cupcake toppers.  Have fun and enjoy the season!

 Look for the highlighted name at the bottom of each post and click on it to hop to the next person sharing.

 This month I would like to share with you a gift card holder that I learned from my 2nd upline, Naomi.  When you lift the lid the money or gift card pops up.  I seem to need a lot of gift card this time of the year.
The Christmas gift card uses Beary Christmas paper. The bow was cut from CTMH Cricut collection.





I made this gift card holder for my DIL, she loves gift cards. This gift card is using the tag thin cuts. 

I will try to give you directions, I do have it in Cricut Design space, which make this easy.
Start with a 9 3/8 x 5 piece of cardstock.  Place  the long side across your scorer and score at 3 1/4,
 7 3/8 turn it and score down the 9 3/8 side 1/2" on both sides.  Save flaps up to the 3 1/4" score, cut off the rest of the 1/2" score sections. Fold in the flaps to make a pocket and glue on each flap.

Cut a piece of cardstock 4 1/2" x 3 5/8"  (I prefer white, this is what the gift card sits on)
Score at 1/2"  and 3"   The half inch score is where the gift card sits, so tuck that into the pocket.
Only glue the 1 1/2" piece to the very top of the card.   Don't try to line up the score line that's on the pocket piece.  You need that  white piece glued to the very top so it raises the gift card up when you open the card. You can put a hook and loop dot on the flap to hold it shut. Z1805 pg 115

If you need me to explain this in another way, just let me know.  Thanks for looking.









Hope you enjoyed my post and now it's time to hop to Marie and see what she has created.
