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 ~

Spring Has Sprung

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Springtime Makes Me Smile when I see all of the trees start budding and flowers start blooming.  Spring has sprung in North Florida and in my Craft Room 🙂

No matter how many new and exciting products are on the market, there are times when I just want to “go back to basics”  using a white card base from Close To My Heart, a paper punch, paper crimper and a few thin cuts.  I can’t believe that I did not use a rubber stamp on this card 🙂

I was not spring cleaning, but I was looking at supplies that I have not used in awhile.  It’s amazing what you can find hidden in those decorative photo boxes LOL

I found a box of all different shaped paper crimpers and I have not used a paper crimper in years, but it was the perfect touch for the window shade 🙂

I am challenging you to look through a box of supplies that you may have hidden in your closet or under your bed and see what you find and then create a masterpiece.

~ Enjoy your Sunday Everyone ~

Today I want to share a quick post with you to show you what I have been up to in my craft world.

Since it has been a cold week here in North Florida (I know a lot of you are snowed in but for Florida its cold) and I have been dreaming of warmer weather.

What a great way to dream when you are surrounded by the new Regatta Paper PacketMy Anchor Stamp set and these wonderful My Anchor Thin Cuts.

A Zentangle Cricut Birthday Card Idea

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Hope you all had a great weekend. Today I want to share with you a birthday card that I made for my nephew Ryan.  He is the person who got me involved in Zentangle, so I just had to create his card with some kind of Zentangle patters but it also had to have a cool image.

I found this flamingo image on the Life Is A Beach Cricut cartridge.  It was cut on white cardstock and filled it in with my own Zentangle art.  This was a really fun card to make.

~ Happy Birthday Ryan ~
