Home For the Holidays Tags

I love making tags!  For these I’ve used the Joys of the Season cricut cartridge to weld a little house to the tag base. Then I simply cut the base, cut another house out of  dp (Pink Paislee Father Christmas), stamped, sponged and added baker’s twine for the tie! The tag is 1.75 inches wide and 3 inches tall.  Here’s a pic of all three… I used Memento rich cocoa ink to sponge the edges and stamp the snowflakes.   The sentiments are stamped in broken china Distress Ranger Distress ink, and rich cocoa.

Cup of Cheer Gift Card Holder

GIFT CARD HOLDERS is the theme for this week’s Crafty Creations challenge.  I’ve been down with the flu this past week and drinking lots of  hot comforting mugs of tea with lemon, so perhaps that’s why I used this cup shape  for my gift card holder! I designed the card by welding the cup to it’s flipped image  uisng the Cricut Design Studio and Joys of the Season cartridge.  The holly border is cut into the dp layer, the dp  is adhered to a second layer ( front cup shape) cut from white card stock  for additional stability. These two layers were adhered with double sided tape to the front of the card base to form the pocket for the gift card.  The mistletoe is cut from the same cartridge and I’ve use two little candy cane beads for the berries.  The inside sentiment is from Flourishes Sweets of the Season set. I often give coffee shop gift cards at Christmas, and I think this is a fun way to present them.  I like that …

Cricut Design Studio Santa Hat

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 …
