Diecut Storage Idea with Close To My Heart Stamps

August's Stamp of the Month, Framed, is perfect for use with the NEW Artistry Cricut cartridge (ask me how you can earn it for 1/2 price). 
The Stamp of the Month has three frames and each has a coordinating image on the Artistry cartridge. 

Many times, I find myself working on a project and see how a stamped frame would add just that little bit of WOW. How about having a few pre-cut images within reaching distance.

Here is what I do -- a few cut in White Daisy and Colonial White stored in with the stamp. 

No stopping to cut, just pull one out and start stamping.

Just remember to cut a few more to take there place later.


And I am glad I had a few ready when working with my friend, Cindy, at her house.

Here is the front of the card boxes created for the United Way campaign auction at Cindy's office.

 The inside of the pink box contains cute Slate, Pixie, and White Daisy cards, a great gift idea.
And a little more masculine version with Desert Sand, Black and Colonial White, with a little black shimmer trim thrown in!

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…

A friend shared her version of a rocker card and I fell in love. A rocker card starts with circles. The base 5 1/2" circle cut from New England Ivy cardstock. A second 5" circle is cut from pattern paper, here I am using the New England Ivy pattern paper. 



The next pieces are the circles creating a place for the sentiment and embellishments. Here I changed it up a little. The original circles would be 3 3/4" cut from White Daisy covered by a 3 1/2" circle cut from the Beary Christmas poinsettia pattern paper. 
My version…
