Cricut Card Idea for A Sweet Sixteen Birthday

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Celebrating special birthdays are more fun when you get to create a birthday card using a Cricut Explore Air Machine and rubber stamps 🙂

Today I am sharing a card that I made for our niece Nicole who is having her Sweet Sixteen Birthday.  I am really starting to feel old… LOL

The cake was made with the Cricut Explore Air and the candles with a stamp and thin die cut set from The Stamps of Life.

I stamped 16 candles on white cardstock then put it through the Cuttlebug® Machine using the matching candle die cut.  I love die cuts because it so much easier and quicker then cutting each image out with a scissor.  Colored each one using Copic Sketch markers.

Then the fun part came when I put it all together using ATG tape and also dimensional to make layers of candles.

Another great thing about handmade greeting cards is that if your creation doesn’t fit on a regular A2 size card, you can make it any size that you need too!

~ Happy Birthday Nicole ~

Sailing Away Birthday Wishes

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

It has been a busy couple of months for Birthdays in our family.  Today I am sharing a handstamped birthday card I made for our niece Riley.  She spent her birthday on a boat, so I thought this card would be great!

Happy 1st Birthday Step Up Card

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I had so much fun making this birthday card for our great nieces 1st Birthday.

happy birthday

This Cricut Explore Air machine is the BEST and using the Design Space to create these fun looking cards is so much easier then I expected (since I am really not a computer person) 🙂

I also used the Cuttlebug with an embossing folder to get the flower image onto the white cardstock.

There are so many great things about the Cricut Explore and Design space but what I have noticed is that I am not wasting paper anymore. I know exactly where everything is going to cut on the cutting mat because your computer screen shows what piece of the image is going to cut next.  I think that’s SUPER COOL 🙂

Pink Flamingo’s I Must Be In Florida

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Close To My Heart has the cutest Flamingo stamp set and coordinating thin cut set  called Tickled Pink.

So many people think of Florida when they see Flamingo’s so I think this stamp set was made just for me, since I am a Floridian 🙂

All different kind of greeting cards can be made with this Tickled Pink set, but also think of accents for scrapbook pages, party invitations and decorations…

And remember just because its called Tickled Pink does not mean you have to make them pink.  You can use any color ink that you want.  That’s the best thing about creating your own paper crafts 🙂

Creating Graduation Card Using Cricut Explore Air

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Hope you are enjoying your day.  Today I want to share with you a card that I made for our nephew who graduated high school.

Using my new Cricut Explore Air Wireless Cutting Machine was AWESOME 🙂

Finally took the leap from the Cricut Expression to the Explore Air and I am so happy.  I am still learning how to use the design space, but with the videos that Cricut has available, I am doing better then expected LOL

The  Cricut Cartridge, Wild Card  is what I used when making this graduation cap and it was super easy and fun.  But I guess when you are crafting and doing something that you love it is always fun 🙂

~ Congratulations Luke ~
