Christmas Card Ideas - Week 6 Magic Monday and Giveaway!

It's a Hello Kitty Christmas this week for Christmas Card Ideas week 6!  But first, let me announce last week's winner and this week's giveaway!

Giveaway for this week: Cricut Lite Cartridge Cherry Limeade


This font cartridge is one of my favorites - I love that it is shadowed and a little funky.  It comes with some image art also, which is very fun!

How can you win?


1) Leave a comment below telling me if what you would like to learn about the Cricut (Click HERE to learn how to leave a comment.)
2) Subscribe or follow the blog.

Winner will be announced next Monday, October 24, 2011 and winners have two weeks to claim their prizes!

Now, onto our winner of the Trim the Tree cartridge:  DORIS P.

Doris P, please email with your name, address and what you won to joyster110@gmail.com.  You have until 10/31/11 to claim your prize!

Now, onto our Hello Kitty Christmas card:
This is a quick and easy card cut from the Cricut Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge.  It is a shaped card - already to go on the cartridge.  There is a whole feature key of shaped cards and they go together nice and quickly.  See below:
I cut this card at 5", using the Card Feature Key and then cut the base and all the layers except shadow at 5".  They laid on top of the card perfectly! I used glitter paper from DCWV.


And there you have it!

I am sorry this went up late.  I got into this 1100 page Stephen King book called Under the Dome: A Novel and it's been impossible to tear myself away from it.  I'm not into horror stories at all but King also has some suspenseful stories and this is one of them.  Off to finish this masterpiece...

  7. Love your hello kitty card this is a great cartridge! I would like to learn how to use the center point feature since I still haven't figured it out LOL :) !

  8. My main concerns aren't about the Cricut itself, but ways in which my daughter and I could craft together using the Cricut. She's always wanting to make something, and so far, all I've given her are letters and one-layer accents like hearts and stars. Surely there are other kid-friendly projects that she could do too? Thanks for any advice - your projects never disappoint!

  16. Darling card, Joy!
    I agree with Barbara - tips on the Gypsy would be good. I have found it to be cumbersome and not very friendly. The only thing i use it for is to check out cuts and how they layout for cutting.

    Is there anyway to be more efficient when cutting? The Cricut seems to give generous margins for some reason! That is the main reason i invested in a Gypsy, but it just doesn't seem worth the time and effort!

    Thanks Joy!

    ReplyDelete
  17. for some reason i just cant seem to figure out how to set the paper size. i've looked it up before, but it just didnt make a whole lot of sense. could you try explaining it to me??

    p.s. this cartridge is suuuper cute!!

  48. What would I like to learn about the Cricut.....hmmmmm....EVERYTHING! I have problems with the layers feature especially. I just don't seem to get it. Also, I would like to know about cutting fabric and how to know which settings to use to cut certain types of paper. There is a certain cardstock that seems only just to tear when I use the settings suggested. H-E-L-P-P-P-P!!!!! :D

  52. I always seem to learn something new on my Cricut so anything would be great. Also going back to basics sometimes is nice because sometimes a simple helpful feature is looked past here and there. Keep up thegood work.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Felt! It scares me.. but I would love to cut it on the cricut but chicken to try...

    ReplyDelete
  54. Joy, what a cute card! It sounds terrible, but I have so many carts now that I sometimes forget what I have (like the HK cartridge)!

    Here's an idea I had.....what about a list of seasonal cuts from all the cartridges? I know that there are resources out there if you wanted to search for, say, a stocking, but what if there was a spreadsheet with all the different Christmas items - cards included. It would be great to have a little picture of it, too. Yeah, a lot of work, I know! Maybe it could be a collaborative project?

    Thanks for the chance to win Cherry Limeade!

  62. I've had my Cricut two years at Christmas and am just learning how to use it, so there's lots I need to learn. I think my biggest hang-up is figuring out what all I can do with each cartridge.

  91. Aside from cards, my favorite thing to make is mini albums. I could use tips on cutting chipboard on my Circut. Sometimes when I multi-cut, the edges get all jagged and if my mat isn't super sticky, the chipboard pops loose and my cut is ruined. I have been unemployed for 13 months now and have no budget for paper crafting supplies so I can't afford to waste anything. Help with this problem would be greatly appreciated as I want to make some minis for Christmas gifts this year. Thanks!

  92. Joy I would LOVE to learn how to use the center point feature. I would like to cut my pictures, but am afraid to because I don't want to cut it wrong and ruin my picture. Love your site and thanks for all that you do!!

Love the shaped card feature on the HK cart. Is that offerred on any other cart that you know of? TFS such a cute card.

  120. Such a cute "Hello Kitty" card! TFS. I would love to learn how to get longer life from my cricut, cutting mats, blades, tools, etc. A lot of us make our own cards not just because we love doing it, but also because we don't want to pay $5-$7 per card in a store - so how can we make this obsession, er hobby, even more affordable?

  121. I would love to try vinyl, but am too chicken right now! I'm afraid I'll have the settings wrong and ruin a piece! I'd also like to learn more about shaped cards made from a regular image - not just the card function. thanks!!

  122. Love the Hello Kitty card. Thanks for reminding me that this is a real cute cartridge. Sometimes we need little reminders of what we already have but don't use very often. Like Cherry Limeaid. I don't know why I never picked this one up because it looks like it has some nice images on it. Thanks for a chance to win it!

  124. I love that FONT!! The thing that I think would be very helpful is more information on the gypsy. I never use mind. It makes me sad! So I would love to learn more about my Gypsy. Thanks for all your give aways.

  127. Cute kitty!
    I'm such a novice, especially love the tutorials that can be printed out, and would love to learn more about all the settings in a nutshell to make the most of the carts I have (e.g., welding).
    Anything cherry and all things lime -- two of my favorite flavors. How this would sparkle up my card making! Thank you for the chance to win.

I second a lot of the posts in that as a new user, I would like to learn more about some of the settings/buttons such as paper saver (how does it work), center point (where do you find this helps most). Thanks for the chance to win and the wonderful tutorials you have already shared.

  137. I often print sentiments on cardstock from the computer/printer. Is there a way to use my Cricut Expression to cut around the sentiment so that it is centered? The Hello Kitty Christmas card is soo... cute. Thanks for all the tips that you have posted they have helped me learn how to really get the most out of my cartridges!

  145. The Hello Kitty Card is so cute, I have read Under the Dome by Stephen King, it is a can't put it down book. But I like all of his books. I think I have a good understanding of all the function keys, I just like watching others use them on videos.

  146. I have a lot to learn. I'm pretty new to the Cricut and have been playing with it but really dont know too much. I love to make cards with it but haven't quite figured out all the sizing...

  147. This cartridge is on my wish list! I absolutely love the font!

    I have the smaller Cricut, and I would like to know more about if the smaller machine is OK to use when cutting vinyl and or fabric. I am intrigued by many of the projects on this site, but am nervous to try with my smaller machine.

  148. I am such a beginner that just about anything would help me. I don't have a lot of cartridges and I just have the personal cutter so I can't go beyond the six inches. So if there is a way to do the 12 inch things in 6 inch sizes I guess that would be the biggest help to me. Hello Kitty is so cute dressed for Christmas!

  149. I would love to learn more about using the markers and also more about layering. This cart has been on my wish list for a while now. Thanks for the chance to win.

  156. The card is sooo adorable. I hate it when you start to read a book and just get completely into it and just want to finish it and it has to wait, bummer, just because of other responsibilities. TFS

  164. Adorable card!!!
    All I have learned about the Cricut has been thru blogs and Youtube videos. So the more tutorials that are out there then it would help me a lot. I like getting all the layer cuts in one attempt using my Gypsy so if you have a tutorial on how is the best way to do that it would be great.

    ReplyDelete
  165. I just gave this great cartridge to my daughter and hated I could not have one for myself! So I think I need to learn to share better with my Cricut!

  166. I would love to learn how to cut shapes from photos....center them and not worry that they will get ruined. Thanks for a chance to win this cart. I am going to try out a Hello Kitty card. I haven't used my cricut in awhile and this is a good reason! TFS

  167. I would love to know how to make envelopes to fit cricut cards. I have the Just Because Cards cartridge and can't get the envelopes to turn out right...arrrgh!

  168. I always like when you create projects and provide dimensions for re-creating. I would the Cherry Limeade cartridge. Always appreciate home decor items.

    ReplyDelete
  169. I am new to the Cricut and have so much to learn. I've been learning online. It's difficult to say what I still need to learn! I'd say, ways to simplify using the Cricut so newbies don't have to spend hours looking all over the internet to learn how to use it! Welding comes to mind specifically, using Design Studio which I just got. Thanks for all you do.

    ReplyDelete
  170. I love this! And I have the Hello Kitty catridge. I will make these for my great-nieces at Christmas.

  173. I just thought of what I would like to learn more of: when you show a card made with a certain cart, I would love to have you tell us how we can make similar images with other carts we might already own.

  174. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your Stephen King book! I would like to learn more about the best ways to care for my cutting mats - washing them? adding adhesive? I've heard many theories. . .

  178. Your Hello Kitty card is so super cute! -- I just got the E2 and I'm pretty clueless on how to use it to it's potential. I can do basic cuts and that's about it. So I'm thankful for all the tips that you post. I'm learning with your help. : )

  179. I have not been using my cricut as often as I would like to and a quick refresher or tips for beginners would be really nice.

  187. Hi Joy! I recently got a Cricut Expression for my birthday. It was a step up from the personal one and I love it. There is so much to it though, I've barely scratched the surface. I would really love to learn how to layer in order to make such adorable things as your Hello Kitty card. I struggle with how to cut things in order to layer properly. I think I'll be watching some of your videos. Your site is adorable! Thank you so much for putting the info out there.

    Blessings!
    Brenda :-)

  191. I have been a follower of your blog for a long time now. I have learned a lot of things, but I don't know what to do with my Cricut mat to make it sticky again.
