Wedding Shower Card

A FREE Cricut Design Space File - Wedding Shower Card

I saw this Card on Pinterest and wanted to make a Design Space File for it.  All of the cuts are FREE Images.  I embossed the back White Layer with the CTMH Heart Embossing Folder Z3018 and the Towels with a Stampin Up Embossing Folder (email me for more details).  I used a green Pilot Precise V5 Pen for the lettering, although the font is a little different on the "Mr. & Mrs." in this file, so it could be shared. Please let me know if you encounter any cutting problems in Design Space with the file.  Note:  Be sure to watch when to insert the Score Tool and the Pen.  They tend to sneak up on you!

My First Card using my iPad! YIPPEE! LOVE IT!

I am going to LOVE this whole iPad creating!!! Oh Yeah!!!!

Can I just say I'm going to LOVE using my iPad Air with my Cricut Explore!  This is one of the first cards I made from the Make It Now collection in Cricut Design Space.  It turned out sooo pretty...and they go OH SO FAST!  I've already made 6 of them.  I realized that this card is actually a combination of two different cards and there is a fee. 
Sorry about that!

This one I made a little larger by selecting the entire file (Select ALL) and dragging it to the size I wanted, then cut it with this awesome shimmer paper I found at Michaels.  I added some extra greenery - but really about anything you do to this card will be beautiful!  You do NOT need an iPad to make this project.  Just look for it in the Make It Now Projects!

Better late than never!

...and then there was Valentines Day!!!! 

These pictures are horribly late - but none-the-less - here are a couple of things I made for Valentines day.

The Gift Bags were from Wal-Mart and I simply made the Tags using the Cricut to match the Bags.  I thought they added a nice personalized touch. If you need more info on the cuts, just send me a quick email and I'll try to figure out which ones I used! :-)

The Favors were for my Granddaughter to take to Preschool.  I thought about cutting the Mason Jars w/ the Cricut Explore Print then Cut, but really it worked best to just print them on white card stock and cut a hole in the center.  I did back of the "jar" with a piece of acetate so the candy oils wouldn't leak through.  The jars fit nicely into those plastic jewelry bags you can pick up about anywhere. Tuck in a few Gummy Worms and Wallah! I put a piece of double sided tape at the top back of the bag so the worms wouldn't escape. I will include the jpeg if anyone wants to try these.  They are super easy and go together really quickly.  I think I used the little 3" x 4" bags.
