Sending Love Your Way~

This wreath was made over a year ago as a gift to my Grandmother.

It briefly brightened her room at the nursing home until her passing.

And now it hangs in my study as a constant reminder of her.

The heart holding birds and love phrase found on the Cricut Imagine Better Together cartridge was exactly the sentiment I wanted my wreath to express.

I chose a daisy like flower from the Cricut Mother’s Day Bouquet cartridge, because I think daisies are just a little, happy, go lucky flower.

I used two different patterns from DCWV’s the Blossom Song Stack paper for the flowers and even mixed them together for several of the flowers.

I do suggest double cutting the paper to cut cleanly and completely through the thicker, glossy parts.

That gloss really makes this wreath shine.

Much like the person it was made for did.

I used~
DCWV the Blossom Song Stack
Recollection gems
10″ Grapevine Wreath
Mother’s Day Bouquet for the flowers
Better Together for the birds and sign. The birds were printed and cut at fit to page and the sign at 3.5 inches.

I made a Cootie Catcher!!

At least that’s what the kids called it.

I don’t know how I made it through my childhood never making or even knowing the name of these.  With the help of the big kids, the Cricut Circle message board and You Tube I got it folded!

I used~

Better Together for the cootie catcher or fortune teller.

I also flood filled Imagine shapes at 2.5″ and 2.2″ for the tag.  I stamped it with a Bella Blvd Sweet Celebrations stamp and added a Teresa Collins Celebrations chipboard element.

I used vellum to add some personalization to hubby’s card.  Next time I thimk I will try printing directly on to the paper to make it a litte neater.

I have to admit that this was one fun project.  Even though the kids didn’t know HOW to fold it, they knew what it was called.  And even better they were smart enough to know you can find all the answers to life’s important questions on  You Tube!
