My Favorite Projects of 2013

Looking back through this year of several Blog posts, I have found some of my favorite projects. Some projects are still in my home or scrapbooks, while others are in the hands of the loved ones I made them specifically for. I enjoyed creating each of them from my heart and hope that the recipients of some of these items are cherishing them also!

In no particular order~

I took a risk with pairing some winter snow pictures on a black background, the result was awesome and that's why I love it!

A folding album for a little baby girl turning one! Why I love it... The Clementine papers were so pretty and soft. It only needed a few embellishments, because the sweet girl will be the star of this album!

This card was from a Spring card exchange. I fell hard for the honeycomb trend! This card has multiple layers, lots of trendy supplies and fun techniques!

This layout is wild and is a favorite for many reasons! One of my first layouts using background layers created on the new Artbooking cartridge. It has a great pocket feature to hold more photo's and a informational booklet. It's also a favorite, because the pages capture one of the best adventures of our summer!

If you know me, you know that I love bicycles! I repainted this metal bike and display it in my craft room. I also incorporated a bicycle on some canvas artwork. Both are super fun projects!

I always look forward to the Stamp of the Month. This was one of my favorites all has chocolate...who doesn't love chocolate!!

A Pinterest inspired project! How sweet are these onesie cupcakes?! Not too sweet, they are 0 calories!!

Close To My Heart has offered several home decor options this year. The display tray is incredibly easy to decorate and looks so nice in any decor!

I used the Frosted papers and a trio of trees stamp set to create this soft and elegant Christmas card. I love all the elements and dry embossing, it came together beautifully!

Another fun seasonal project was this "Be Merry" gingerbread banner. It just makes me happy!

Mini albums everywhere!! Thanks to the Artbooking cricut cartridge I am able to create several mini albums. This Halloween album was a workshop I did in conjunction with a card exchange. It was a big hit!

My Summer album has lots of fun elements. It also features the very cool Dream Pop papers that were a special promotion this year!

Often my inspiration comes directly from my customers. They always find interesting products and ideas for me. These Valentine heart trees turned out super cute! {Cra Cra Adorbs!!}

Finally, this Halloween luminary/card for Halloween was a great idea and later inspired a Fall and Christmas luminary.

I love looking back at past projects, they often inspire future projects! Who knows what this next year will bring. Please visit my Blog in 2014 to see new creations, amazing products and hopefully be inspired!
