One-button Card Creation

Last weekend I made this fun accordian card (thanks for the inspiration, Chris) for a co-worker who is going to be leaving. I used my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to make all the cuts (including the card base). And all the shapes are cut from the same button on the Cricut cartridge! Want to learn more?

For the One You Love - H2H

This week's Heart 2 Heart challenge is to make something for someone you love. I made this heart Valentine for my mom (who is one of my biggest fans & supporters); I love making stuff for her because I know she appreciates all the work I put into it! And the LOVE frame will hold a photo of me & my love; hoping to take a nice photo together on Valentine's Day. I found both wood bases at Hobby Lobby (my new favorite place) & I went crazy cutting spiral flowers with my AP cartridge. The Cherry-O (retired) paper packet was the perfect base...I loved that packet. What are you making for your loved ones this year?
