I'm so happy you decided to join us!
If you arrived here from the super talented Megan, then you are in the right spot.
If you just happened to stumble across the hop on my blog today and would like to start at the beginning, then just hop on over and see Joy of Joy's Life.
For this hop, we are all making projects using not only those awesome Joy's Life stamps but also those super cool Cri-Kits Gel Pens.
For my project, I decided to make a little vase and card gift set.
We will start with the card first:
For my card, I drew the butterfly with my Cri-Kits using the Everyday Pop-Up Cards cricut cartridge. The butterfly is 1.5".
Here is a close-up of the butterfly:
So pretty! Yup, with the Cri-Kits, anything you can cut, you can draw with your die-cutting machine.
I thought this sentiment from Joy's Mother & Daughter set was so pretty and felt this was the perfect project for it:
Here is a picture of the vase:
For the vase, I just upcycled a Starbucks Frappachino jar. I drew a line of butterflies at 1" each and layered that strip onto a piece of purple card stock that I had used my traditional eyelet border punch on. Then I simply wrapped it around the jar and added a ribbon to the top of the jar.
Here is a picture of the set together:
I am so pleased with how it turned out. What a pretty gift of encouragement for someone!
