A Halloween Cricut Card Idea Using The Designer’s Calendar Cartridge

Here is the quickest and cutest handmade Halloween greeting card. I used the Cricut Designer’s Calendar cartridge to cut out this hanging spider that was cut at 3 1/2 inches with my Cricut Expression machine and then attached it to a web that I cut with a Martha Stewart border punch.

This is a perfect “spooky” Cricut Card Idea that you can make using some of your paper scraps.  We all have that pile of scraps, whether they are in a basket, box, or organized by color in a large envelope.

I stamped the inside of the A2 card with the clear stamp set that I still can’t remember who it is from (you can see picture in the post from the other day), but this time I used tuxedo black memento ink.


Now that I am looking at this picture, (and the card next to me) you may want to “bling” up your spider or the web with some stickles for a shimmery, sparkly effect.  I just might do that!

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

Another Cute Birthday Cricut Card Idea Made With The Celebrations And Designer Calendar Cricut Cartridges

Our niece Riley’s 11th birthday is next week and again I wanted to made a cute card using my cricut.  What 11 year old girl doesn’t like cake and presents?

So I used those two things for the front of the card.  I cut out the cake  from the Designer’s Calendar Cricut cartridge and the present from the Celebrations Cricut cartridge, both using my Cricut Expression machine.

I cut the cake on plain white cardstock then colored in the image with Copic Sketch markers and then added some “bling” with stickles to the frosting of the cake and the flame of the candle.

The present I cut out on two different shades of purple but again added Stickles onto the bow to add a little sparkle to the present.

I then used my Cuttlebug and embossed a light green plaid piece of cardstock with a star embossing folder, layered that onto a solid piece of purple cardstock and finished with a polka dot bow, using American Craft ribbon.

I think this came out really cute and for the inside saying I printed on the computer:  Happy Cake and Presents Day!

Wishing Riley a Very Happy Birthday!

St Patricks Day Cards And Some Fun Cricut Card Ideas

Happy Monday Everyone, I have a couple of St Patricks day ideas that I want to share with you.

I can’t believe that St Patricks Day is next week already and people will be eating corned beef & cabbage along with “green” drinks of all kinds. I have some fun cricut card ideas that I wanted to show you that are super easy and that makes great St Patricks Day Cards.

I went though all of my Cricut cartridges and decided to use the Designer’s Calender Cricut cartridge to make these handmade cricut cards.

I found the four leaf clover and also the phrase St Patricks Day to cut with my Cricut Expression machine and to make these cards with.  And you know me, I just couldn’t leave it at that, I had to add some green Stickles for that extra bling!

I just thought of other St Patricks Day Crafts that you can do.  Why not cut out 2 four leaf clovers and glue them together with a tooth pick in the center to decorate some cup cakes or even put a straw in between them for a fun decorative St Patricks Day straw?

There are so many fun and creative cricut card ideas and St Patricks Day crafts  that you can come with.  Just have fun and for this project just think Green!


Happy St Patrick’s Everyone!
