Flower Garden Box Card for Mothers Day

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I love making box cards.  You’re creativity and imagination can go wild, because you can insert any kind of cut-out to create your card.  This flower garden card was made for my mother-in-law for Mothers Day.

2017 Mothers Day cardWhat is so sweet, she keeps some of the cards that we have given her for various occasions displayed in the china hutch. So for this card I decided not to make the sentiment visible so it can stay out all year.

My husband loved the way the fencing was around the base of the card 🙂

This card was made using my Cricut Explore Air, various Thin Cut dies used with a Cuttlebug machine, lots of Stamps and Ink.

Happy Easter Card Idea

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing Easter.

Today I want to share with you the Easter Card I made this year.

2017 easter card

Who says you need real eggs to color at Easter…I didn’t color real eggs, but I sure had fun coloring these paper ones 🙂

The card base I used is called a Z fold which is super easy to make, plus it gives your card such a great look.

Using the Cricut Explore Air machine I cut out the flowers, stems and grass.  Since you could see the back of the flowers with this type of card, I cut the flowers out twice so I could glue them to the front and back of the stems.

And it can’t be an Easter Card without some Bunnies and Eggs, so  I used a few stamps that I had of cute Easter bunnies and Easter eggs.  Colored with Copic markers and some Spectrum Noir markers, then cut them out by hand and arranged them on the card.

This was such a fun card to make and of course I finished it off with some “bling” using rhinestones to decorate the eggs.

Just a reminder, If you plan on purchasing some Cricut products, there is FREE SHIPPING till the end of the month, and saving money on shipping means you can buy more products 🙂

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 ~

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 🙂

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 ~
