Make & Takes

We had 4 different make and takes at the show in York.  Laurie taught the first one, the tee pee card from our Christmas extravaganza

while I went to my nephew's wedding in Pikesville MD.  The morning wedding was outside (which was a little worrisome because I had had frost on my windshield) under a gazebo at Grey Stone Mansion.  The chairs were set up in a nice sunny area and it warmed up a bit by the time the I do's were said.  It was lovely. 

When I got back to the show I relieved Laurie and we moved on to our second make & take.  It was a totally adorable Santa Card using a scalloped circle card from the CTMH cricut cartridge as the base and CTMH ribbon flowers for Santa's beard.  You'll have to check Joyce's blog for a picture, since it's her original design.  Everyone loved it.

Sunday's make and takes were a cute purse gift card holder, which I'll post later because I don't have a photo of it right now, and a card from one of our CTMH classes

We changed it a bit by adding some burlap across the card, removing the ribbon knot, switching the banner to the left side of the card and adding some glitter gel on the green. 

What a fun time.


  1. Sounds like you had a great time - so glad the weather cooperated for the wedding! Thanks for sharing the Christmas Tree fold card tutorial - I'll be giving that a go! Love the tee pee card too. Love the color combos on both cards - very pretty.

  2. Both are so pretty. Really like how your tee pee card turned out. Thanks for sharing the Christmas tree tutorial too.
