Hello everyone!!! I can't wait till spring so I got out my Freshly Picked Cricut Cartridge. This cute flower pot really made me smile. I do have to apologize, because all through the video I keep calling my dog. When ever I'm on the phone or making a video he starts to cause trouble with my other two dogs. So as a bonus, I have added a short video of Oliver on his best behavior.

Here is what I did after watching her video.

Greeting Card Planner

I seem to just barely get my cards in the mail in time for birthdays, and special occasions.  So I decided to try and get organized, and prepare in advance.  This year I may still be a little behind, but this project can be used year after year.  I have created a pocket for each month  to hold the cards that I need to send. I will be able to list the person's name, and date of the occasion on the cover of each month.  If I can really get ahead, I can complete my cards that need to go out that month at the beginning of the month.  My goal is to be at least one month ahead.  I plan on using my cricut to decorate the front of the binder, and continue to add to it.  As soon as I get the front of the binder blinged up, I will post a picture.  Enjoy the video, and thanks for visiting.  Lorraine

Mother To Be-New Arrival Cricut Cartridge

My friend’s daughter is having a baby!!!! I cut the mother image at 4-1/4". I used the New Arrival Cricut Cartridge, and cut the design in black. Using the gatefold card style, and I layered designer paper on the right and left side of the two front panels. I cut a piece of pink cardstock at 3-1/2"x5-1/4" and layered a 3-1/4"x5" green cardstock on the pink. I added pink stitched ribbon on the left of the two layers after attaching the silhouette. Be sure to only add adhesive to the left side of your layers. This will allow the card to open. On the inside, I covered the front panels, and the center with the same cardstock that I used on the front of the card. I added pink card stock on the inside center, and the "Congratulations", was cut using the Wild Card Cricut Cartridge. I think the sweet little mother to be will enjoy her congratulations card.  Lorraine

Ice Cream Cone Card-Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge

Hello Scrappers!!  I took out my Sweet Treats Cartridge to make a fast card, and this truly was.  Sometimes I forget that so many of the cricut cartridges have a card feature, and you can put together a quick card.  I cut the base card, and all the layers at 5-1/4".  I made two of these cards so that I could have a card and use the other as a gift tag.  The strawberry is covered in red glitter to give the card a little sparkle.  Using textured card stock also saves a step, and adds dimension for an even quicker card.  Thank you for visiting.

Review On Two Style Of Punches-Tool Of The Week

Hello Scrappers!! I would like to share with you two style of punches that you can use to punch any where on a card or layout. I found that the Fischar's is great when you want to get your shape punched exactly where you want it. The Martha punch is a little more difficult to line up. Let me know what you think about these two items. Thanks and enjoy the video.

For You Greeting Card-Sweethearts Cricut Cartridge

I wanted to add a greeting card to the gift set that I altered, so I used the same card stock, roses and ribbon.  I used the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge for the top note, and sentiment.  I cut the sentiment at 2" and the top notes at 2-1/2" and 2-3/4".  Now I have a really nice set to give as a thank you gift.

Hello Scrappers! I usually don't make Valentine cards, but couldn't resist using this pretty paper. I also used the Martha Stewart punch, anywhere on the page heart punch. The second card I used the Martha Heart, and Key chipboard embellishments. I finished them off with the beaded pins on each of the bows.
Have a wonderful day everyone!   Lorraine
