Isn't this the cutest?! This is from one of the new holiday released Cricut cartridges from Provocraft called "When it's Cold Outside." It has some really cute images on it as well as some 3-D snowflakes you can make. I cut this one at 4 1/4, inked it up with chocolate ink, added some red stickles to the noses and a big star gem in the middle. I also added a sentiment and some red stickles around that and popped it up with a pop dot. So fun and really easy, I let the Cricut do most of the work for me!

These are an oldie but goodie, a few years ago I made these for my Christmas card, I just found the book again the other day so I HAD to make them again, only this time some "thank yous." I sewed the stripped sections on with some green thread and a zig-zag stitch.Sorry this picture is a bit blurry but I had to show the fun sparkly glitter paper :)

So since I got a bit carried away with cutting out paper for my mom in laws cards, I realized that I cut WAY TOO MUCH! I couldn't just throw all of it away... I made more cards, sewing and all. I ended up putting different things on the front then what I made for her. This one here is a photo mount, I inked the edges and added some little snowflakes from a small set I have, then I traced the circle and cut it a little bigger so I had an edge to glue onto the photo mount. I then used another circle punch and another stamp set to get the inside image. I adhered that with a pop dot. I also stamped Merry Christmas on these but I guess I took the picture before I had decided on that. these were the easiest by a long shot, added some ribbon that already had Merry Christmas on it and a big snowflake on some, the others I stamped Merry Christmas on them.

I have had these letters for about 8 months, I had this idea last year but couldn't find the letters at a decent price so I waited until they were on sale and I could get them. I finally got around to putting some paper on them last Saturday and some buttons! I think they turned out pretty good. Scroll down for some close up pictures.

I just wanted to give you all a heads up on a friend of mine named Chris. She is selling her scrapbook layouts. Chris is an amazing artist with some super cute spreads, all you have to do is add pictures and your done! She is selling them for great prices as well and if you live in the St. George area then you wont have to pay for shipping. Go check her out at A Scrapper's Musings and see if there is something you would like to purchase from her... tell her I sent you!
This is just one of the many she has up right now, so cute and such great detail, this one is going for $7.50 plus shipping.

Here they are, the card for this year I came up with to mass produce for my mother in law. I really wanted to do the rounded corners at the bottom and I'm really glad I did, I think it added so much to the card. Also the sewing, I was going to skip that since I was making so many but I'm glad I decided to go with it even if it was extra work and took about an hour. I cut the ornament from Joys of the Season at 3 1/2 (I got 11 per 12x12 page) then before I removed them from the mat I took my gold pen and colored in the top and outlined the edge. I also took a flourish stamp and did just the bottom left corner with Bamboo ink from Close to my Heart. Then using a scripture she liked I stamped that in black. I sewed the gold ribbon on while I went around the edge of the card and then added another piece to tie on the ornament.

I helped a friend make about 30 of these a week ago. They were super simple. We cut an 8 1/2 x 11 paper into thirds so they could fit nicely in an envelope for the ones she needed to mail. I printed all the "look" "who's" "50" on white cardstock from my printer then used a circle punch to cut them out. Then I used the Cricut and cut red circles for a shadow a bit bigger then the white circles. added some pattern paper and some fun black ribbon and stamped "you're invited" with red ink. She s going to print all the info and stick it on the back.

This is such a great idea if your short on time. I used the same idea as the Pebbles Inc. paper cards down below, then I cut a tag at 4 1/4 (or big enough to hold the gift card and still fit in the card) added some ribbon and a couple sentiments and I was done.
