Tag Archives: Cricut Cartridge: Storybook Cricut Cartridge

Thank You Berry Much!

I had to make a slew of cards the other night and I came up with an easy yet cute card that went super quick.  I may add this to my Christmas gift packs.  I got the original idea from My Pink Stamper in one of her tutorial videos making a cherry card and I have run with it since.  Thank you MPS!   If you have not had a chance to check out her videos, they are worth pouring yourself a cup of joe, adding a little “rat poison” (that is what I call my favorite creamers I tell my hubby that I am just taking off the bad years while I pour that into my cup of joe) and sit a spell and enjoy getting some neat ideas and tips.

Quick Cards and Fun Cards

I am on a roll with making cards this weekend.  I made one for a friend that just got an amazing job at 3M and in this economy, that is something to celebrate and I am attending a double birthday tomorrow for a close family friend’s little girls where the theme is Princess Party. 

I have to admit I am still stuck on the faux chipboard concept I learned from My Pink Stamper, so you will see that implemented in the princess themed cards.  Plus I needed any excuse to break out my new “Once Upon A Time” Cricut  cartridge.

Fun Way to Say Thank You, Happy Birthday or Just Because!

I just borrowed something from a friend and wanted to make sure to let her know that I was really appreiative of what she loaned me.  I made this quick card and added a little sweet treat to it as a THANK YOU! I got the card idea from one of my favorite craft bloggers, Pink Stamper

Supplies Needed:

White Tin Box (found at Michael’s for $2.99)

I found blank cards with envelopes in the dollar bin (8 pack) at Michael’s that I used as my base.

Stampin’ Up Tart and Tangy stamp set (I used the Cherry) – I found this via Stampin’ Up, but it is being discontinued – Ebay has some

Paper was Rock-a-bye Design from Stampin’ Up from 2008.  I found packs still being sold on Ebay.  I LOVE THIS PAPER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The scallop I used was from Cricut cartridge Storybook (Shadow setting – Letter M).  I set it at 2 inches.

For the candy I used Skittles.

For the color of the stamp, I used Martha Stewart’s Craft markers – they worked perfectly and I got to use a 50% coupon on it – even better!
