December Creations

I'll be posting some of the projects that I made in December.

I made this blanket for my niece Alejandra. Monica showed me this technique, there is no sewing at all. I just loved it. I also made one for my sister-in-law and one for my mother-in-law.

Close to my Heart Cards

My friend Diana bought a book from Phyllis from CTMH, "Wishes Card Confidence Program" It has a section that shows how to make 16 cards, using 1 sheet of patterned paper, 2 cardstock paper of coordinating colors and of course 16 base cards (A2) Diana and Gloria made theirs Valentine Cards, Monica made all occasion cards and I made mostly birthday cards.
I cut several stars using my cricut and Home Decor Cartridge. I put White glitter on the stars. Some of the Cards I left blank to decorate later.
