Christmas, Christmas, Everywhere!


I have had Christmas on my mind since early July. Every year as September and back to school approaches, my mind wanders to fall, football and the upcoming holidays! The girls and I got together recently and made some Christmas cards and tags, and I think they turned out super cute with a retro feel.

I especially liked the snowmen!!!

I had some vintage snowmen jpg images which I converted to png files, and then print and cut using my Cricut Explore. If you are interested in either png image so that you can recreate them on your own, message me and I will send you a link to the file.

I would love to know what you’ll be working on for the coming holiday seasons.

Until next time…happy crafting!


Butterfly Birthday Card – Cricut Explore & Anna Griffin

As many of you know, I adore all things Anna Griffin…paper, textiles…you name it, I love it. So when the new Cricut Explore came out with the Anna Griffin images, it was a no brainer.

I wasn’t sure what to create first so I opted for a card from the pre-designed projects library, and I am uberĀ smitten with the results!

Also impressive, was how wonderfully the Explore functions. I have owned several versions of ProvoCraft’s Cricut Machine and this is by far my favorite. It is steady, quiet and exact. I still have a bit of a learning curve to overcome using Design Space as opposed to Craft Room, but this machine will make it totally worthwhile.


Now I need to decide what to do with that Imagine Machine of mine! Maybe a prize to one of my subscribers??? Stay tuned for that.

Below are pictures of the gift bag and gift tag that accompanied the card. I hope their recipient enjoys them as much as I do!




Until Next Time…Happy Crafting!
