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.
