Christmas Crafts

Christmas is a fun time for paper crafts! Here are some of my creations this month. Most of these were made using the new Cricut Maker:








Love this Christmas Paper!

I've been making cards from paper that I got from the local hobby store. I used the Triple Window die for the bottom one and Lawn Fawn stamps for the top. I colored with alcohol inks.

Edwards Christmas Village

I have to brag on my brother, David Edwards, and his wife, June. They live in Lewes, Delaware, and put on a very nice Christmas Village celebration FREE to the community. All they ask for is a donation for the local food ministry - Jusst Sooup. I am so proud of these two! Here are some photos from this year:

Halloween cards today...

This first one (pup card) was done with alcohol markers on the dog and pumpkin; I used Washi tape for the pumpkin borders.


This card was cut on my Cricut maker using a free file from BIRDsvgs - I love the scrollwork and the  Maker did a terrific job!

Getting Ready for Trick or Treat!

Today, I spent the good portion of the day working on these treat boxes. The file is from Lori Whitlock. Various papers. I used my new Cricut Maker!

Cricut Maker Day 2

Today, I made a card from an idea I got from Online Card Classes, Day 4. The class uses a background die for this intricate cut, but I didn't have one and it was way too expensive for me to purchase. So, I got on the internet and found an SVG I Christmas Tree background from Miss Kate Cuttables. I uploaded it to Cricut Design Studio and cut it out with my Cricut Maker. It worked like a dream! I used very cheap card stock from a Michael's ($8.00 for 40 sheets). When I was using my silhouette, I couldn't cut with this cheap paper. However, not only did the Cricut Maker cut the paper, but it did it so well that I also have a dish of tiny Christmas trees "glitter" to use in a shaker card!

Here's the final card front. The ribbon opens and Santa opens to reveal an inner white, top-fold card.


The inner card is where you sign your name.


And here are my leftovers ("glitter") - the penny shows you how small these are! The Maker did an awesome job!

Cricut Maker - Day 1!

My Cricut Maker just arrived!! I've unboxed it and already made the sample card and cut out a star from a piece of very thick burlap. LOVE IT! It cuts extremely well and it's quiet!
