In the spirit of cutting down on waste, I used the leftover cut-out pieces from the last set of cards to make some more.
I was pondering designs for another set of Christmas cards and settled on the idea of a star on a stained-glass-style background. Once I'd created the design, the cards came together quickly.
Another attempt at foiled cards. The distressed look wasn't what I was aiming for but I worked with it and ended up with two more cards for the Christmas card stash.
More Christmas cards made using my block Christmas tree design, but this time I turned it into a stencil and got out the shiny pink foil.
After making the last two pairs of cards I was left with all the blocks that had been cut out to make those trees. Rather than waste them, I decided to turn them into some more cards for this year's stash.
The second pair of my block Christmas tree cards. I'm using the same design but I still want to vary the cards, so this time I went for a more glittery approach.
Having successfully ignored the C-word for many weeks, I had to give in and start making some Christmas cards, if only to avoid getting ridiculously stressed out when December arrives all too quickly.
I really need to get out of the habit of coming up with ideas for cards only a few days before they're needed. Luckily I worked out how to create the cut file design, assembled the finished Tom Servo card, and beat the deadline this time.
A spur of the moment Cricut project prompted by a friend's casual comment. Not my usual sort of thing at all, but it's nice to know I can make vinyl signs easily — once I've managed to choose the fonts!
I think I've pretty much used all of the Easter bunny digi stamps in my collection so, rather than go hunting for a new one, I took a different tack for this card for my other half's sister. I'd been trying to organise the various cut files I'd acquired over the years and came across… Continue reading Layered Easter bunny
I set the bar high for making cards for my other half's niece when I made the kitty Christmas card, so I was having problems coming up with a good enough idea for her birthday card. Then I realised it was her thirtieth and I had to do something different. I had found some cute… Continue reading Thirty cats
I've seen a lot of shadow box designs around and, while I think a lot of them are really clever, they're not the sort of thing I would make for myself. They are, however, a great way to experiment with my Cricut Maker and try out different types of card with it. Luckily we have… Continue reading Unicorn shadow box
I never really got a lot of use out of my Brother Scan-n-Cut — it was always hard work trying to get a clean cut from it — in theory it should have been great, but in practice I just didn't get on with it. Then my other half bought me a Cricut Maker and… Continue reading Glittery Christmas trees
