Hi friends, This post is for you CRICUT lovers! A cheery little cup of tea for the holidays! You’ll find this project in the Cricut Craft Room Project Center and you can download the cut file for free! All the detailed instructions are there too. (Accent Essentials and A Child’s Year cartridges used for this project) This is so simple and quick to make for those last minute little gifts for friends and family, teachers, and neighbors. Plenty of room on the back to write a thoughtful sentiment too! It can easily hold a gift card instead of the two teabags if you prefer! What I love about this little cup is that it stands on it’s own thanks to the ‘saucer’ under it! Let me know what you think of this project and I’d love to know if you try it too! Have a creative day! Deena

I have been playing with the Cricut Design Studio, trying to learn the ins and outs of it. It allows me to design my cards and projects on my computer, then cut the necessary pieces once I have everything worked out. I love how this lets me visually create, and it saves me wasting paper because I’m sizing everything on the page exactly as I want it before cutting anything. No guessing! Love it!! Besides that, I can save all my templates to simply cut the same pieces another time to easily recreate the card or project as many times as I like…no more writing down (or forgetting to write down) all the different sizes that I cut this and that at! I made this santa hat card for Christmas, using the Joys of the Season cartridge. I started by welding the hat image together to create a card base. Then I added the dotted dp layers, the mistletoe branches and the sentiment. The snowflakes were cut at 1″. I made the same flipped cuts …
Hi again! I’m so excited!! I have two new projects up on Custom Crops I want to tell you about. The first is a Mini Bunny Basket and the second a Spring/Easter card. Both are made using the Cricut and the mini basket only uses one cartridge (Easter 2010). If you would like all the details and the simple tutorials for either one just click on their links. I hope you like them! I’d so appreciate your comments on Custom Crops if you have a moment to log in! Check out the other wonderful new tutorials/projects while you’re there by Susan and Megan from Above Rubies Studios! Yes, I’m in great company over there!!
