It's in the cards

I've been waiting for this day to come, ever since Amanda told me she was going to have this party! It's a crafty cutter love party!

I scored my Cricut a few years ago on Black Friday...I got $600 worth of product for $200! Merry Christmas to me!

The last time I participated in a blog swap was AGES ago...but I think my swap partner totally scored. One of the items I included was a set of all occasion cards, handmade by yours truly. I had a blast being creative with my Cricut:

I have one cartridge that I particularly love - I use it most of the time. It is called "Walk in my Garden". It has all sorts of adorable flowers and little garden bugs. SO CUTE!

I don't have any great tips or tricks. I like dimension on my paper crafts, so I am crazy for the 3D adhesive foam dots and squares - you can pick them up for cheap at Walmart. They just add a little pop to your project.

And everyone loves to get a handmade card...don't you think? I know I do!

I'm linking up to Amanda at Serentity on the button to see more great crafty cutter projects!

SO PRECIOUS!!!!! Oh my gracious! I love them! I've never made a handmade card, well, unless you count when I was in Kindergarten. These are absolutely gorgeous! I am so impressed with you right now! Love them! Great job!

Xazmin, your cards are gorgeous!! I love receiving homemade cards b/c I know the giver put thought and time into the project. My fave is the one with "friends" b/c of the cute button embellishments. The tip about the foam for dimension is a great one!! I usually just glue stuff down. I like that idea. :)

Thank you so much for linking up with my "I {Heart} My Crafty Cutter" party. :) Loves ya!

I'm still a little jealous of your Cricut steal!! That was a great deal!!

I love the handmade cards!!

I bought stuff to make our Christmas cards 2 years ago...yep, all the stuff is still sitting in my craft cabinet. Maybe this year?

Your partner was lucky! Such cute cards

Everyone always talks about their Cricut. Please tell me what it is. I have ZERO creativity but I like your cards. Maybe I could do them too! I won't get my hopes up.


I love the ladybug card. I want a Cricut.

Myya said...

Those are soooo good!!! I don't have a Cricut... soooo wish I did though! Prekids I used to make cards, tons & tons of cards. Ahhhh maybe again some day. LOL.

SO CUTE! I think that if I got a card like that in the mail from you, it would give me a perma grin all day long.
Good work, you!
