Strawberry Belly Band Pocket Card

Hello Scrappers!
This card is so darn cute!! I just love it! The belly band holds your card closed. Slip it off and reveal three little pockets. Add a friendly message or even a gift card to one of the pockets. I just love how the strawberries hang down on to the little pockets. As you can see in one of the pictures I have made another card using my ribbon roses. I punched two scalloped circle punches and layered them and then attached a ribbon rose in the center. There are endless embellishment that you can add to the front of the card for several different looks. It makes me just want to make more! Enjoy the video and thanks for watching. Lorraine

Baby Bow Project-New Arrival Cricut Cartridge

Hello Scrappers!!
I just wanted to say hi to everyone. I stumbled through my video a little because I was a little nervous being in front of the camera. I have made some annotations on the video to help you understand what I was trying to spit out.LOL
Making this bow, and personalizing it for that special baby, will make a new mom very happy. I have been making bows for a very long time, so it comes very natural for me. I will give you some steps to help you create your own. There are bow makers on the market that you can purchase. One is the Bowdabra, which is available at most craft stores. I have not used this product but it looks like a very helpful item.
Enjoy the video, and thanks for watching.
