Damask Divas Chalk It Up Blog Hop

Welcome to Damask Divas Chalk It Up Blog Hop.

My name is Traci Williams and I am an Independent Consultant with Close to my Heart.

Thank you for "hopping" by...if you came from Jessica Wilson's Craftin' and Stampin' Blog, you are in the right place.  To see all Blop Hop projects visit or click --->> HERE.

My project features two 3D element cuts from the Artiste Cricut Collection.  Frame and sentiment cuts are from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.

I then used Chalk It Up Compliments and Assortments to give some fun finishing touches!

I have 2 grand boys that are anxious for the school year...One will be in First Grade and the other will be in Kindergarten.  So with their excitement, I decided to make some "Home Decor" items that will be "awesome"!
I personally think they will be precious once their school pictures are placed in the frames!

The first is the milk carton cut (Fit to Page)  and the second is a bag cut (Fit to Page) and both are from the Artiste Cricut Collection.  

The school sentiments are on the Artbooking Cricut Collection and same with the picture frames (4x4 size).  I scaled the 3-2-1 to fit in with the milk carton and left the arrow frame as size.

Then I finished them up by placing random cuts from the compliments collection and added bubble stickers from the Assortments collection of Chalk It Up.

Jubilee Mason Jar Card

Welcome to Paper Crafting 101!

My name is Traci Williams and I am an Independent Consultant with Close to my Heart.

I love country settings even though I truly love Big Cities...I incorporated my country with the fun use of a mason jar cut.

Using Close to my Heart's My Reflections  Jubliee Paper Pack, Made from Scratch My Acrylix™ Stamp Set and Barn Red Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad.

The mason jar cut was a cut on the Design Space software for Cricut Explore.

I inked the A2 card with the grosgrain stamp in Barn Red and then made layered cuts of the Mason Jar.  I then cut the label to size recommended on the stamp set.

The project was fun to create, finished it off with a metal tag and Blue Baker's Twine.


July is the last month Jubilee will be featured with Close to my Heart, to order please visit and select shop and type "Jubilee" in search to see all the goodies!!

Thank you,
