National Sewing Day with Fantabulous Cricut

Hi friends! Long time no blog, I know I know. I'm getting used to working multiple post offices and hopefully am going to find more time to craft. Pinkie swear! It's been killing me to be away from my Gypsy for so long! I did have time to make a Fantabulous Cricut project for you though! Our challenge was to use stitching in some form on a project. That is a fairly easy assignment since I love to faux stitch on my cards and projects. I don't have a sewing machine but I probably don't need one because I'm sure I would love to use on my projects. I like to use a piece of magic mesh to make stitches quite a bit. For this project I just freehanded it. Lookie:

This is a very easy card to make. I used the place setting feature on Christmas Cheer for the JOY panel and then used a layer from Just Because Cards for the base. I sized the Joy panel to fit the base and voila! Easy peasy holiday card! This is such a simply card that you can easily mass produce them yourself. Thanks for stopping by!


Cartridges: Christmas Cheer, Just Because Cards
Cardstock: SU Riding Hood Red, Not Quite Navy
Misc: Sakura Stardust pen, felt snowflakes from SU, ribbon, gem brad


ETA: It would help to schedule my post to have been posted at 6am not 6pm! Sheesh! Sorry to everyone who came from Fantabulous Cricut and couldn't find my project.

Fantabulous Cricut-Back to School!

Hello everyone! Nope, I haven't fallen off the of the planet. Just working insane hours and trying to stay on top of my mail van's mechanical problems. Which keep growing every day. Le Sigh. But, I have a card for you. I haven't crafted in almost a month and I was RUSTY! This card was my attempt to get my mojo back after I spent the morning/afternoon fixing my mail van. Please gentle with me. ;) This weeks theme at Fantabulous Cricut was Back to School-Numbers and Letters. Lookie what I made:

What an adorable elephant! This card could be adapted for boy or girl, just change the colors. Sweet, simple and to the point. Sometimes that's all you need. :) I'm off to dreamland as I should have been in bed an hour and 45 minutes ago! Ack!

Bye lovelies!
