More Out of Home Decor

There are so many creative ways to use hand-crafted 3-D items. Use our great products to create home décor that will bring a fun and unique accent in your home. It’s easy to use Close To My Heart products you already know and love—with a different twist!

This festive thankful countdown uses the My Creations® cubby to celebrate Thanksgiving. Fill the Cricut®-cut boxes with reminders of things you are thankful for, and share the grateful fun with your family. Use it to countdown to your favorite holiday, like Thanksgiving, or use different embellishments and countdown to a loved one’s birthday to show them how much you love them.

This adorable star was made from Collection Two of the Hostess Collections, available through Hostess Rewards in the Autumn Winter 2012 Idea Book. Show your hostesses this spunky star so they have an idea of what they can create from this particular Hostess Collection. While the Dakota paper packet, Casual Expressions stamp set, and Dakota Complements Foil Images have a country feel, you and your customers can use all of these same materials to make a welcoming star for your front door.

Everyday household items can also be combined with Close To My Heart products to create dazzling home décor. Use the Flirty paper packet and your Cricut® machine, along with everyday household items such as a flower pot and Styrofoam ball, to create a papercrafted tree. Or add a few Dimensional Elements to the autumn colors of the Flirty papers to create a desk calendar using two My Creations blocks. You can even use cute Cricut®-cut flowers and leaves to make a festive banner!

For displaying precious memories, the display tray is a perfect fit! Display photos, stamped sentiments, Dimensional Elements, and other embellishments for a prized layout that you can proudly hang anywhere in your home. The display tray is easy to personalize, too; cover up several windows with cardstock for larger photos!
Show your customers how they can make eye-catching home décor in a cinch. Creating unique home décor is so much fun to do; the trick is deciding which project to create first!

My Creations Star

I have recently started fixing up and decorating my basement.  In the living room, I am doing a country/ red barn theme.  This is not usually my style, but I really like the way it is turning out.  I knew the My Creations star would fit right in with the rest of the decor.  I am really happy with the way it turned out and it looks nice hanging in the living room.  I will share photos when I have a few more pieces done!

Close to My Heart Products Used:
My Creations Star
Cashmere Pigment Ink Pad
Chocolate Pigment Ink Pad
Cocoa Pigment Ink Pad (I wasn't sure what shade to use, so I started light with Cashmere.  It was too light, so I added Chocolate.  Still too light, so I added Cocoa.)
La Belle Vie Level 2 Paper Packet
Ruby Cardstock
Artiste Cricut Cartridge
Black Sparkle Flourishes

Cheetah Rag Quilt

Everytime I would walk by this charm pack of fabric at Walmart, I would think of a certain person.  Last year, I finally broke down and bought 2 packs to make her a quilt for a Christmas present.  Rag quilts are so super easy to make and a great way to use up scraps of batting.

The Flirty Collection is fun and bold!  It is perfect for so many occasions, including fall and valentine's day both! 

For a more funky flavor, take a look at the new Flirty paper pack! Florals just got a lot more fun. You probably guessed already that this is another paper pack that introduces kit-specific colors for increased variety and flexibility in your crafting. I love the colorful Dimensional Elements that complement the kit, with more of those delightful multi-color flowers as well as other natural images, such as moths, an owl, acorns, leaves, and more.
