Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Hi how are you doing today! Feeling creative? I felt like doing some gardening. The problem is...I am SO not a gardener! Here is the type of garden I can handle, though!

Since this is a hop you just have to click the link in each post to continue to the next blog.  If you've come from Tracey Pierce's blog you're doing fine. Click the link at the end of  my post to continue on the hop.

I have loved seeing photos of the succulent gardens being made and decided to try my hand at it! The succulents are cut from our Cricut Flower Market cartridge. I've inked the edges for added dimension. I even used the Clear Shimmer brush on some of them. It's really not a hard thing to do and now I get to enjoy it for a long time. In fact, I had so much fun I ended up with 15 gardens! My sister-in-law came over and we started an assembly line. It was a lot of fun! They make great gifts! I'm taking these to a craft fair later this week.

The Juniper flowers are inked in Pansy. The Sweet Leaf flowers are inked in Blossom. The Sea Glass flowers are inked in Lagoon. Flowers were assembled with Liquid Glass for a real good "stick".

All products are Close To My Heart:
  • Cricut Flower Market cartridge
  • Cardstock: Juniper, Sweet Leaf, Sea Glass
  • Exclusive Inks: Pansy, Blossom, Lagoon
  • Liquid Glass

  1. These are beautiful! Love the distressed edges of the flowers.

  2. OMG - these are fabulous! I love the colors and especially inking the edges. Great job - I bet they will sell out.

  3. I love these. Succulents are one of my favorites I remember there always being hens & chicks in my grandma's garden and it is the one thing I can grow :)

  4. Your gardens look wonderful! I love Hens & Chicks. :)

  5. Wonderful project, Michelle! Now those look like plants that could thrive in my house even without water or sun. Thanks for inspiring me with these gorgeous colored flowers.
