Altered Item with Botanical Tea

So this one has taken me awhile to do. But I loved every minute of it!! 

I found this at my local thrift store for $6.00 and it just begged to be fixed up.

Where has the time gone?!? I cannot believe that it's May already!

Just thought I'd share my latest creation

Mother's Day Cards!! I made these using my Cricut Explore, and the Creative Cards Cartridge. 

Paper is My Mind's Eye, burlap is Die Cuts With A View.

On the inside I used the Explore to write my sentiment. Thanks for stopping by!-AR

Exploding Box Card

Isn't Spring wonderful?! I love seeing all the flowers blooming, and the grass starting to grow. 

I have felt very inspired by all the flowers lately, and so decided to make a spring card. 

The idea for this card came from Pinterest. The original designer is Susiesmith37. 

I loved what she had done with her card, and so I decided to take my own spin on it. 

I used Graphic 45's Botanical Tea collection for this card. I just adore all the spring themed papers!

The red roses were some paper roses I already had on hand, and the butterfly's came from Graphic 45's Old Curiousity Shoppe. 

The teacup I cut using my Cricut Explore and the Tags Bags Boxes and More 2 cartridge. 

I patterned out and made the box and lid myself, designing it just big enough for the teacup to fit. 
And here is the box closed. 

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope this inspired you to make your own spring card! -AR

Masculine Birthday Card

So this last week I made a Birthday card for a friend of mine. I used Graphic 45's "A Proper Gentleman"

I loved how it turned out!! I usually make really frilly cards, so doing a masculine one was a bit different for me.

Botanical Tea Tag

So today I got to have my first lazy day in awhile!! It was so nice!!

I finally opened up my Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper. I love all the beautiful spring themed paper!


I used the smaller G45 Tags for this tag. I also made a hat pin for an embellishment and fussy cut out a butterfly for some extra detail.
