2011 Year in review card version

Hello, friends!

Today I am going to post my favorite cards that I posted this year. I will post them by month to make it easy peasy to follow!


This card is my pick for January because I just love flowers and this card has pretty little roses on it. Not only that I love the color PURPLE! It is made with the Formal Occasion cartridge. These roses are just little gems on this cartridge!


I actually had a hard time choosing February because there were lots of cards that had flowers on them and apparently February was a big flower month for me. Instead I chose this card I made for my son's birthday using the Baby Steps cartridge....shhhhh don't ever tell my son. He would die if he knew I made him a card using a 'baby' cartridge.


March:

Now this card is made with one of my all time favorite cartridges, Damask Decor! Cannot praise this card enough. In fact, I am going to include two cards made using this lovely cartridge. 


 April:

Besides floral motifs I love sailboats. Seriously, I am not sure what it is but I am a total sucker for a nautical theme! For this card, I used the Just A Note cartridge.


This card is made using the wonderful Serenade cartridge. I remember this is one of those craft ideas that I came up while laying in bed at night. Yes, my life probably makes you sad.

June:

This month is almost always a big release month for Provo Craft which means that there are lots of projects that were made this month. Therefore, I had a tremendously hard time choosing just one. I narrowed it down to my favorite three...I know...ridiculous!

I made this card using the Princess Party cartridge...who knew?
This card is made using the Space Party cartridge.
This of coarse is made using the Flower Shoppe and Fancy Frames cartridges.


July:

July's card is one of my most favorite cards of all time that I have made. Perhaps it is because I made it for one of my favorite people on the planet...my bestie Joy!

I used the Flower Shoppe cartridge


August

Now I used my favorite cartridge of the year (Art Philosophy) to help guide my pick for August. It is a very simple card, but I felt it turned out quite elegant! 

This card was made using the Art Philosphy cartridge.


September:
It probably seems weird to see this card in the September section. However, PC released several Christmas items this month. For this particular card I used the Scandinavian Christmas card cartridge.



October:

This is one of the first times I used the long skinny card sizing that Joy turned me onto. Love love love the 9 x 4 size card!
This card is made using the Autumn Celebrations cartridge.


November

This was one of the first things I made using the FAB Cricut Craft Room and now I don't want to use anything else! 

I used the Gnomes and Mushrooms Cricut Craft Room cartridge.


December

The is the last one! It is also made using the Art Philosophy cartridge. Love those flowers!!


 Thanks so much for stopping by today. I will be back tomorrow with the scrapbook layout version of this post!

 January promotions:

The January stamp of the month is called Little Reminder and coordinates with the Art Philosophy cartridge. It also has some great number and sentiment stamps! As usual it is $17.95 if purchased alone or only $5 with any purchase of $50 or more!



Also, the Rock the Block promotion continues until the end of the month for any order over $25 out of the Fall/Winter catalog for just $15 (a $45 value!). You save $30!



This great promotion comes with the blocks, holder, and this massive stamp set!

*NOTE make sure you add promotions when prompted by the ordering system. If you add promotional items for prompting the discount price will not be reflected in the total. Also, orders cannot be altered after the orders are placed. Please contact me before the order is finalized if you have problems.



Have a SUPER day!
