Hello my crafty friends,

Daphne here today. I hope you are having a great weekend. Today I am showing you an idea for taking a small piece of cut file and using it by itself. Hopefully this will get you looking at cut files as usable in many ways. 

I took the Water Wars cut file from PapercraftingWorld. I was originally thinking of alternate ways of using this cut file as a whole. But then I saw the little bear on the left side of the file and thought he would make a cute little surprise birthday bear. 

This is the original file:

Water Wars Cut File
American Crafts Textured Cardstock
Prisma Colored Pencils
 I used the bear in the box on the left side of the file.I made the bear into a little girl bear. I made the box look like a package. This would make a cute little birthday card. If you change the color scheme you could make it into a boy's card or even a child's Christmas card.

  Masculine Trifold Card from Close to my Heart

Pin It
Hello crafty friends!!

I am here today to share with you a really pretty but masculine card I created using the Close to my Heart cartridge Artfully Sent. The Cricut Explore made this card super easy to cut however I wanted a few extra layers of color so I added my own.

It was really hard to photograph the tri fold so I'll try my best to explain it. The first panel is the deer and rabbit, they open to the left. The next panel is the brown frame with the bush and the tree branch, they open to the right. The inside is the dark green bush where you can add your sentiment. I also added some sequins for that extra bling power! Because guys can have bling too!! LOL!

 I added liquid crystal to the leaves for the shine. And there you have it!
If you don't have this cartridge yet and you love to make cards, it's a must have!!
You can find it on my website at

I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica Tovar from Vicky's Scrapping Passion 
and today I'm posting last minute for our dear DT Daphne, who is becoming a Grandma, please head here and give her some love.

Here is my last minute project for Connie Can Crop:

I made these bookends (only one shown here, I'm saving the other one for a later post) for my husband birthday. This Bookend has a see-through divider between the 2 glasses. I used it a shadow box and made a dimensional layout and was able to display a picture in the back as well:

I used some  discontinued CTMH papers and embellishments.
You can find the new collections here.
