Need to make Christmas cards quick!? I've got some ideas!

OK, I don't know about you but Christmas is just 6 weeks away and I am not ready at all! And, this year, since I have the Christmas blog, I can't very well NOT send out home made cards, know what I mean? How's that going to look if I include a letter talking about the Christmas blog and no handmade cards?!!? Not good. LOL!

So, I've been on a quest to get some cards made!!

Fortunately, I was asked to be a guest designer on Hallmark Scrapbook's blog, Hallmark Ladybugs. I am really honored to be asked!! I figured that would be a good time to develop a pretty, but fast card to make. Nothing like a blog post to spur me into action! So, I came up with the quick, but pretty cards above that can be made with the Cricut cartridge, A Child's Year. I made a video to show you how to do this. To see more details and to leave a comment over there, click HERE!

I also had today's post and video over on Christmas with the Cricut....obviously, I didn't have a calendar handy when I arranged these posts back to back....LOL! So, I decided to continue on with the theme and show a card that could be easily made but is simple and elegant, if I say so myself....hee hee! I made the snowflake card above using the Winter Woodland cartridge and the card feature from the cartridge. The background that is glittery is made with Martha Stewart fine glitter and a secret ingredient. You can see the video and post above.

  5. Love the card! However, I keep tearing the white cardstock trying cut the Child Year image.....what cardstock do you use?


  6. Here's two that work great:

    Core'dinations cardstock - can find online and at HL and Js (ind. sheets at Js - Woo hoo!)
    Georgia Pacific white cardstock from Walmart in office supply aisle - cheap so no texture but still OK

    Hope that helps!
