OK, I am in serious love with my new Cricut and Cuttlebug! Last night I made a card for a friend and I used Bazzill cardstock, Stampin' Up stamps, Cricut, Cuttlebug embossing folders and some bling. The card I made my friend Laura turned out so adorable, so much that I almost kept it for myself, lol. I took tons of pics of it and will re-create it this weekend for my stash. I used the Cricut to cut the white shaped card as well as the green frame. And I also used the Cricut to cut out an envelope and applied that to the back of the birthday card and put in a small card so that my writing wouldn't be out on the front. The embossing was done with the Cuttlebug, used a birthday embossing folder and the Swiss Dot folder.
I then made her some cards to give out as birthday cards and thank you notes. For those I used some cards that I had on hand from Target, found them on clearance and knew they would come in handy one day. I used the Cricut to cut out the white card and stamped it with my Stampin' Up stamps and on the birthday cards I also stamped a sentiment on the inside. For the Thank You cards I used some paper stock to cut out squares with the cricut and then stamped on them using another Stampin Up stamp. They turned out so cute!
Well, I hope you guys had a great week and that you have some fun plans for the 4th of July weekend! We will be going to the Sam Houston Race Track to see the horses race and fireworks with our friends The Graffs! Then we will be working in my studio, my DH is re-building the built in bookcase so that there is more storage space for me and we may also install the crown moulding and baseboards, we'll see. Will update the blog over the weekend if I get a chance, ciao for now! One last thing, as always you can click on the pics and they will pull up in a larger size.
