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

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

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

I made these altered jar candles (can that count as #10 "jar"?) for my coworkers. I was actually pretty happy with how they turned out, b/c my non-LO projects are usually pretty disastrous!

Ok, its not perfect, having a hard time glueing on little things without getting the glue in the wrong places. What kind of adhesive do you guys use for all those little letters when you cut them. I cut the letters and the snowflakes and stars (twist) on the cricut and then put stickles on some of them.

Hi Ladies, hope everyone had a great evening. I finished a page tonight, so stopping by and dropping off. I'm not happy at all with it and I'll probably redo it someday, but not toight. I need to buy one of those pink bag thingys so I don't get embossing powder all over the page! I hear they work wonders! I used the Winter Woodland cart to cut the squirrell and svg files for the flowers and leaves. Anyway, thanks for looking!

Jenn, we'll miss you, but totally understand. Spend as much time with your bf as you can...we'll see you in January.

Great tip passed along Michelle!

I completely second the use of the Xyron X for all or any small cutouts!

Love mine!



p.s. If you don't have one (I'd say get one!) However, if not, my second choice would be to use a good, thin glue pen! Hope That Helps!

Hi all, hope everyone is having a great evening! I've been hunting our outside Christmas lights. Our handyman is coming tomorrow to put them up..for the small fee he charges us...it's so worth it!

I don't have one of the xyron x's, but I have an old 2.5 xyron and love it for small pcs., it works great! And as I think it was Kelli suggested, I have a thin MS glue pen. Also pretty easy to use.

Hope everyone has a great evening. I'm going to start on my Christmas card list and make sure I have enough cards made. BBL!

Good Morning Ladies! Hi Danasgoodies! My daughter's name is Dana.

Marci, congrats to your Mom! What cart's did she win? I have joys of the season and winter woodland and love them both! Now that I have my E, I can't imagine scrapbook life without it.

Have a great day everyone!

- Michelle (& everyone else), if you happen to have the Opposites Attract Cart, you can use the punctuation to make snowflakes!

- Also, be sure to look for standard shapes such as hearts, stars, etc. which can always be cutout using Holiday-themed colors or patterns.

- In addition, as long as you have any font cart, you could always include the letters and add whatever other coordinating holiday cutouts, embellies, etc!

Hope That Helps!

Just For Sharing (as referenced above!)

Hi Ladies! Great carts Marci, I haven't looked at christmas cheer too closely.

Kelli, thanks for the suggestions - they are very helpful!

I've been watching tv with my DH most of the evening..he hasn't been feeling to great so far this week. But hopefully tomorrow he'll feel much better. Tomorrow I have to go to the dentist and drop about $250 - urggghhhh I hate that! especially this month. Then out for a hair cut at 4:30. Busy day tomorrow! Hope everyone has a great one!

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.

Sorry, I'm a little bit slow & JUST barely got that when I was updating things!

LOL!

p.s. For the record, I thought you were 1) just talking in general 2) refering to a Cricut Christmas Project gone horribly wrong!

C'Mon Michelle...You Can Do It!

Remember, once you start, there's no stopping ya!

Note: 1. Just 1 teeny-tiny project!

Just pick a button. Press cut and come back to it later! LOL!

Idea of the Day - We really need a Cricut Cut button on our phones & hand-held PDA's!

Can you imagine! We could be cutting out shapes while waiting in line for groceries or at the DMV!

Hi Ladies...it's been a busy Saturday here. Bday lunch for my son...he choose tacos, mexican rice, refried beans...it was really pretty good. My Mom & Uncle came over and my daughter was here too. He always picks tacos or sweet and sour chicken with wild rice. So after the cleanup and visiting, we drove my daughter halfway to tennessee so she could go home today. Her friend met us halfway to pick her up...she's a really good friend to my daughter. I'm so happy she's made some good friends. My daughter's husband was supposed to be home from Afghanistan around the first of Jan '10, but they've pushed it back to late Jan and he still doesn't have a definite exit date. I pray he gets to come home at the end of the month. Wow, I'm rambling...sorry about that....I hope everyone had a great Saturday. I'm looking forward to a lazy Sunday, hopefully I'll get creative with my Cricut!

Have a blessed Sunday!

Thanks for all the birthday wishes ladies! I had a different birthday this year....I spent most of it in the ER. Dh fell on the ice this morning and was in a lot of pain. So off we went to the ER. He bruised his chest wall, they don't think he broke any ribs but won't know for sure until tomorrow morning. He was on his way to get me a b-day cake....don't I feel guilty! This will be a b-day I'll never forget!lol
