Cricut Card Making Ideas Using Mini Monograms Cartridge

Having so many Cricut card ideas is so much fun when using the Mini Monograms Cricut Cartridge.  I also added some Penny Black Zoophabet stamps for that personalized touch.  Colored with Copic Sketch and Prismacolor markers for a clean, professional look.

Why would anyone who owns a Cricut Expression cutting machine, some rubber stamps ever purchase a greeting card from a store again.   I have not purchased a greeting card from a store in at least 12 years.  I love sending cards with my personal touch.  I think that it means so much more, since alot of thought has to be put into handmade vs store bought.  Don’t you think so?  Handmade Greeting Cards are the way to go.           So lets go and make some Cards!

Handmade Valentines Day Cards for Operation Write Home

A Very Happy New Year to all of my Fellow Crafters.  2010 is going to be a lot of Fun.

I just finished making some Valentines Day Cards for Operation Write Home and got them in the mail.


If any of you do not know about Operation Write Home, you are really missing out on great organization that you can be a part of.  Please check them out and if you are not a card maker maybe you can send a donation. I am so honored to be part of this organization.  While our soldiers are fighting for us and our freedom, they are away from their families and this is my small part in giving back and helping them be connected to their loved ones.  Just check out the web site and see for yourself.

Anyway, now I am making my first Joans Craft World video.  Some of our fellow crafty friends make it look so easy.  Well let me tell you I think, no I don’t think, I know that I really need to practice.  I thought I did a great take only to find out that all you could see on the screen was my hands and a white piece of paper, and not what I was doing.  Oh well, I guess that is the learning curve of making videos.  I just need to finish editing and then it will be up for all to see.

Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
