I just love how Samantha used non-traditional Christmas colors for this page. However, snowflakes, glitter and reindeer definitely say Christmas. Samantha altered some Chatterbox wood frames with Ranger crackle paint to make them match the colors of her layout (which is a great idea since they come 5 to a pack in assorted colors) She also embellished the frames and her page with some Prima flowers from the Bitty bag. If you'd like more details on Samantha's page visit her blog.

I cut the bubbles behind the title with the EDPD cartridge on my Cricut. I also cut the word "Bubbles" using SCAL and my Cricut. I used vellum for the bubbles (which you need a good sharp blade to keep it from tearing) and then colored the bubbles with Pebbles Pearlescent Shimmer chalk to give it that iridescent look that soap bubbles have. I also chalked the photo mats for the same color effect. I used assorted dew drops (orchid, lily pad, island blossom) for the little bubbles. I usually glue my dew drops on with Aleen's tacky glue because it holds good and dries completely clear. When I don't have time to wait for glue to dry (you know those last minute cards) I use glue dots to adhere them. On the unmatted photo, I attached a clip that says "cherish" from my ATB clips and clipper inspirational words set. You can catch all the details of this page by visiting my blog and you can get the dew drops, chalk sets and ATB clip and clippers in my store Your Memories Here.com

To accent that great photo of Karli and one of her boys, she used some dew drops, the Imaginisce Haunted House stamp, Prima flowers and her Cricut. If you click on the photo you can see all the sparkle from the glittered edges too. For more details on Karli's page visit her blog.

I just realized yesterday that I needed to change out my blade. What a difference it makes to have a new, sharp blade in your Cricut. When was the last time you replaced your blade? If you need a new one, you can get it at http://www.yourmemorieshere.com/ along with other Cricut necessities too.

She layered the tittle letters that were cut on her Cricut, which always looks great on a page. Linda adorned the corners of her photo mats with some Prima flowers (one of my favorite things to do) Linda also dress a mat with some Pebbles ribbon, with so many colors to choose from this would work with any theme. How cute is that little Chatterbox wood frame that emphasises the words "splish, splash"? You could even add a quote to one of those frames or the sentiment on a card! Linda has more pictures of this layout on her blog (just click her name to go there. The very versatile products used on this page can be found at Your Memories Here and guess what?

I decorated the outside of the tins with patterned paper (the purple is DCWV and the red and black is Paper Studio) Then I embellished them with Stickles, glitter glue, Prima flowers, Dew Drops and rhinestones. They have a lot of sparkle (click on the photos for a better view). For the note cards I used the Cuttlebug embossing folders and embossing borders first, then added either some patterned paper with embellishments or some Prima flowers and Dew drops. I made the note pads with the Bind-it-All and 1/2" O wires, I used some chip board covered in patterned paper, and decorated them with Prima flowers and Dew Drops.
By the way, a little secret, I don't have a Cuttlebug! (gasp, I know) I have the ooold red Sizzix machine with the converter attachment and just run my Cuttlebug dies through it. So, If you don't have a Cuttlebug, you can still use these great embossing folders, they work in most machines with some sort of adapter.

After writing this I thought * gee, I should have referred to myself in the 3rd person since that's how I write all the other posts. But that was too weird for me so for every "I" or "me" you can replace it with Kristina :)
Please stop back later, I'll be posting the next give away for this week!

This next project that Karli made is a tree card holder to hold those special handmade cards or pictures you receive at Holiday time. Isn't that a great idea? Karli used the Pebbles clips to hold the cards & added the Pebbles ribbon for trim & the bows all around. Her cards attached to the tree is awesome too, don't you think?
