Use Your Cricut Cutting Machine to Make a Unique Photo Thank-You Card

I needed to make a thank you card for the wonderful Linda Marshall who has a lovely skincare line called ELYSEE. She sent me flowers for my birthday. So I decided to make a photo card of the flowers so she could see how pretty they were. So I turned to the Cricut Cutting machine to help me out! Here’s the video of the project!

One of my favorite features of the kit are the Colorista pads that help us all look like professional watercolor artists without having a lick of painting ability!

So with that in mind….I put together a quick and easy card project that packs a lot of wow!

Anna Griffin Halloween Kit is Here!! (and her new Xryon Sticker Maker)

Halloween Anna Griffin KitIt’s always fun when uber talented Anna Griffin releases her Halloween paper kits!  If you love to decorate for Halloween or want to make cards, even candy bag tags, this is a fun kit to have.

Anna rarely does a Halloween kit and she wanted to get it out early so you’d have plenty of time!  What I love about this kit is the cardstock is fantastic and the dies are really fun.

Ultimately, it’s the ease and SPEED that I love. We are all time starved and you can create something  great in minutes with this kit!

Below is my video that gives you an sneak peak of what’s inside and also I’ll show you two finished cards to make!

Gemini 101.png

I think one of the most confusing things for new crafters or card makers and even those of us who are a bit more seasoned is using an embossing and die cutting machine.  Well in the video below I’ll walk you through the amazing Gemini from Crafters Companion!  If you’ve used crank style machines those will be a thing of the past!

This is totally automatic and works with basically all brands of die and folders.  I go through set up, how to make “The Sandwich” to testing three of the major brands…Crafters Companion, Anna Griffin and Stampin’ Up.

Thanks so much for checking this out, please share my video on Facebook and Pin this on Pinterest if you can!!
