Merry Christmas Hidden Tag By KrickleScraps

Just dropping off a tag I made today. Actually I made about 15 of these. The green looks much better in real life. These were made from a free svg file from myscrapchick.com. She has great files. If you have SCAL you should check her out.

So glad I was bored tonight and stumbled across this challenge. I've been watching for the last 2 months and want to give it a try.

So, please add me to the list....

here's just 1 card that I've made using my cricut and I used the George cart for my brackets

this is not an original card of mine - I definately lifted it, it was from Papercraft mag. April/May 2008 and the designer was Betsy Veldman

hope to get more lo's and cards done in Jan - like everyone else so busy with our holidays...

thanks for looking

happy birthday

Good Monday morning, got a few Christmas cards finally done over the weekend and some goody baskets for the neighbors.

Here's a pic of my card, cut all the different size circles with my cricut and then stamped and heat embossed, it was hard to take a good pic but I popped everything with foam adhesive - sorry I forgot to rotate the card

9. Judy (Sweet Destiny) (1/1) = DONE!

I just got my Cricut on Black Friday so still learning, But I will give it a go.

I cut the letters and the snowflakes and stars (twist) on the cricut and then put stickles on some of them.



Here is one I did for another challenge that I cut the word Thanksgiving out on my cricut. I also cut the frams out on the cricut by cutting a tag and then just cutting off the slatted ends and hole.


Here is another Christmas card. I really like this one. Did the words and the dove on my cricut.
