Christmas Cards 8/8/2015 Crop- Works in Progress

These cards are works in progress.   Went to a local crop yesterday. 

The first card is a small card, perfect for last minute gifts or use as a tag.

The image is from the Cricut A Quilted Christmas cartridge.   The name of the image is Wise Man Card.  The image is also part of the Cricut Design Space subscription.

I cut the outer images at 5.5 inches by 4.25 inches out of very lightweight glitter paper from the dollar spot at Target.  The inner card is navy and burgundy heavy card stock cut 1/8 of an inch smaller.

I'm still thinking about how to embellish the front.  Maybe something simple like "Peace."

The second card was super easy.  I used green card stock from Michaels (Recollections brand).  It cuts like butter with the Cricut Explore.

The image is from the Cricut Design space subscription Holiday Cards 9, Christmas Card.  The card is cut at 5.5 inches by 8 inches.  The insert is red glitter paper (also from the Target dollar spot).  I cut the insert a little bigger so that I could adhere it to the card and then cut off any excess.

Still not sure if the card needs anything else.  Will have to put on my thinking cap.

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.

Easter Cards

These two cards were made with the Cricut Explore.  I was practicing using the "slice" feature.

The first one was for my granddaughter and the second one I made for family members.

It's kind of hard to see, but there is bling on the cards.

Have a great day, make it a crafty one.

Mickey Mouse Birthday Card

This is a card I made for my husband's Aunt.  She LOVES Disney and she is 70 years young.

I used my Cricut Explore.  The die cuts are from the Cricut Mickey & Friends cartridge.  The card base is a cut file created by Melody Lane from   You can find her all over social media.  Just google Melody Lane designs.  She was kind enough to share this file with the Cricut Explore Facebook group.

This is an easel card and my very first one.

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.

Cards for Swap

Just a couple of quick cards I made for a swap.  The first one I used the Cricut Explore.  Love it that when you need a quick card this machine has a lot of ready-made ideas for you:

This next card is from a paper pack (can't remember the name) that I got at Michaels.  It was one of those $5 Hot Buy Pads.  This paper pad had some many cute cut-outs that it was a breeze to make this card:

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.

Like You A Latte

Another quickie card made with the Cricut Explore.

Made this card for a card swap.

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.


Happy New Year

Happy 2015 Peeps!

I was a very lucky girl.  Krafty Klaus brought me a Cricut Explore and I'm having fun learning how to use it.

Here is a very simple, but clean card from the Make It Now feature in Cricut Design Space.

Just added some sliver Stickles and some bling and wa-la!

Happy New Year everyone.  Make it a crafty one.
