Color My Heart Challenge Design Space Friday

It is time for another Design Space Friday project. And a perfect project for the Color My Heart Color Dare! It is all about the Poppy!!

My project is all about the color Poppy and an awesome technique I saw on a recent Jennifer McGuire video.

She used dies to create a see-through card, what a novel idea! And the Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut collection is all about cards, insert evil laugh, off to the laboratory (DesignSpace) to see what I can create!

And here is the finished project outside

And inside

And below is the video on how I created this card and maybe another!



  1. Shirley this card is diabolically clever! I LOVE it and you've inspired me to make one, too!

  2. Always look forward to your next original piece...very clever card leaving off the back panel. I've got to take a look at cricut to see what other backgrounds there are and try this myself.

  3. what a great idea for a card, very unique! thank you for sharing.

  4. You did it again, Shirley! Love that you gave the CTMH treatment to one of Jennifer’s techniques! Your projects and videos continue to inspire me.

Holiday Expression goes LIVE

A NEW Holiday Expression Idea Book went LIVE today, September 1st!! And it is FULL of Fall and Holiday FUN!!

Below you will find out how you can get FREE shipping on your FIRST Holiday Expression order, you must order through me.
There are FOUR great Stamps of the Month and we start with Sweet Treats. A great stamp for Halloween, Christmas, winter, and friendship.

Here are to cards I created using Sweet Treats!

I created a Halloween shaker card using our new Shaker thin cuts and Shaker Window Foam & Acetate (Z4310). I used one of the circle thin cuts to cut a small circle in the card base and used the larger circle and frame to create a see through shaker. I cut little bats on the Cricut and added the Shaker Sequins.
And don't forget to do the inside and envelope
Next I cut a large circle with the Shaker Thin Cut and added a Cricut cut leaf frame. The Warm Winter Wishes image was stamped on the inside and a piece of Ruby polka dot ribbon from my stash was added to the front.
