  2. I make multiple cards at Christmas, and sometimes for birthdays when several come up in a short time period. I really like your thank you card! Too bad people don't send/use thank you cards as much as they used to. It's always nice to get a thoughtful card like that. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I do make multiples of cards I didn't used to but when I make a card for a special occasion *Christmas, St. Patrick's Day, Valentines Day etc.* I love it so much then was sad that I didn't make more so now I do make multiples and just change up the sentiment part of it to fit the person it's going too. Love your cards today just so pretty.

  8. I have so wanted this cart!!! Usually making multiples equals how many shapes/designs I get from the piece of paper that I am giving up for the card.... lol can you tell I am a paper horder! thanks for the great giveaway.

  9. These cards are so cute! You did a fantastic job!

    I usually only make individual cards. I love the idea that someone has a card that no one else has. My only exceptions are Holiday cards and thank you cards.

  11. I have seen so many fun cards made with Teddy Bear Parade. Thanks for the chance to win!

    I usually make at least 12 of each card. It takes so much time to get ideas and supplies together that it is so much more efficient to make multiples. I add to my "stash" and also create gift sets.

  13. what a cute card. Can't afford the artiste cartridge yet. But sure would love to have it.
    I taught my kids to send Thank you cards which they still do but even though
    the grandkids have been taught the same - seems only a few now grown do. So
    sad!

  17. These cards are darling! I always feel like I need to make the cards unique, but when I come across a card that turns out really well, I always make a few repeats.

  21. The Teddy Bear cartridge is too cute! I've been making paper dolls, using the Paper Dolls cartridge for my Grand children. I make the dolls to have their hair styles and eye color. They would love teddy bears to play with along with their paper dolls.

  27. I regularly make multiple cards for Operation Write Home (20 of each design - 350 +/- per shipped box) and 20 cards every month for the local hospital's pediatric ward so I'm always looking for fresh ideas, especially for the children.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Usually when I make one card I cut two of everything and make a card to keep. I love little 3x3 cards ----I would love to win the Teddy Bear Cartridge -----so many different uses for it. Nancy

  30. Just made my first multiple - a birthday party invitation for my twin granddaughters' 2nd birthday! Sure would enjoy winning the Teddy Bear cartridge.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yes, I sometimes make multiple cards. My friends will ask me to make multiples for them at times, such as graduation. I love doing it, I think it's such fun! Love your cute thanks card, and I enjoyed the video. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks for sharing your bright and cheerful cards! I think I made multiples once for Christmas. Since the design process is the most difficult part of cardmaking for me, I don't know why I don't do it more often!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yes, I just made my first set of everyday multiple cards (unless you count Christmas time). I wanted something for spur of the moment sympathy, get well, etc. These cards are cute and so are those Teddy Bears. One for every occasion! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yes, Joy, I do make multiples - usually of cards i love the way the first one turned out. Also my Christmas cards are completed assembly-line fashion. Wish i could work in fast forward like your cute video!
    Thank you for continuing to post the valuable coupons. It's always nice to know i can find them here.
    and thank you for offering this fabulous prize. Teddy Bears are on the top of my list!

  35. That's so cute! I do make multiple cards, usually for holidays. Sometimes if I make a birthday card I really like, I'll make a couple of them to keep on hand.

  36. I generally only make multiples for Christmas cards but this year I have made multiples of each holiday card that I've been making. I create what I need and then a few extras. I am going to put them together at the end of the year and give as a holiday gift or hostess gifts. So far I've kept up with the holidays!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I do make multiples if I like the end result. It makes it nice when you need an unexpected card to send. Thank you for the great tutorial. I love your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love, love, love all your tutorials and your blog! These cute mini thank you cards are adorable! I definitely make multiples of cards so I can I use them for different people like birthday cards and thank you cards. Thank you for the giveaway too, the teddy bear cartridge is so fun!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I most always make multiples of the cards I create. This way I can 1) remember what I made and 2) have a spare incase a relative or friend needs a card. I might change the pattern cardstock at times, but the style is identical. I also make a sketch of my design which I keep in a binder for future reference. My Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentines cards were multiples of the same card. For Operation Write Home, I make at least 10 of the same card. Often on these cards, I'll leave the sentiment blank, so the writer can fill in his/her own title.
    Thank you for the chance to win this Teddy Bear Parade cartridge from Cricut. Who does not love Teddy Bears!!!

  40. This is such a cute card! I love the Artiste cartridge so I think I'll have to use that flower, too. Yes, I have made multiples of Christmas, birthday, and sympathy cards. Thanks for sharing your talents with us!

  41. Like your card. Like the flower & banner. Yes, I make multiplies of cards. Nice to have some on hand that I can duplicate easily.

  43. I should make multiples of cards, but I don't. Maybe I will start! :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I make multiples of cards, though I try to make 1 thing different on every card. I especially like to do that for thank you notes and graduation cards. Currently working on cards for Operation Write Home. Thank you for the chance to win the cartridge. The bears are adorable. Also like the mini cards.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Enjoyed your video today. I often make multiples of cards--especially holiday cards. Since I make so many of them, I would have to work 8 hours a day, 5 days a week to make single cards of every design. My problem is though, sometimes it takes me a card or two to figure out all the nuances of the design that I want to include. By then, I'm already moving on to the next design!!!

  46. Super cute card~ I do not make duplicate cards, it gets too boring! Carri~Abusybee

    ReplyDelete
  47. I often, but not always, make multiples. I send so many cards that it just makes sense to me. I do try to record what cards I send to who so that I don't send them the same one twice, though...

    ReplyDelete
  48. I do make multiples on holidays when I send them out to family and friends. Thanks for the chance to win!\mb6464@hotmail.com

  49. I love the cute thank you cards...and will be making some this coming week! I usually make a dozen at a time....of thank you or Thinking of you cards...because my husband loves to write notes to people "just because"...when he sees former students in the paper doing something big or small. We are just old fashioned people who love to write notes of appreciation and thinking of you....to many of the elderly we know. These will be perfect! Thanks, Linda Talso

  52. I make multiples of Christmas cards, and even then I make a lot of variations. Love your card, would be easy to enlarge and change the sentiment to use for birthday or other use.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I so agree with the gal above, "I make multiples of Christmas cards, and even then I make a lot of variations. Love your card, would be easy to enlarge and change the sentiment to use for birthday or other use." LOTS of variations with these cuties.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I make multiple cards. I find it easier than to do one at a time especially for an event

  64. I have not made multiple cards, but from everything I have read, I think I will start! Your example is very cute! And something I am able to do. :)
    Love the bear cartridge! I have a collection with over 500 stuffed bears and figurines. They just make me happy!

  65. I usually only make multiples at Christmas or when I have a craft show coming up. Cute cards!

  66. I love the thanks oodle card. Thank you for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love the idea of making multiple cards at one setting (esp using cricut to cut many of the same shapes all at once and time like Christmas when I am sending out a lot of handmade cards), but I tend to be one card at a time that kind of person. I need to think of the person that I'm sending the card to in order to know how i'm going to make/design.
    This is a good layout and card card tho!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Love your card!! I usually don't make multiples of cards except when I go to one of my scrapbooking events in June and I get into the card swap where you have to make 10 of the same card

    ReplyDelete
  69. Yes, I make multiple cards; One to keep as a sample, and the others to give away. I have waited and waited to see this cartridge for sale, but have never seen it here. I would absolutely LOVE to win this cartridge! Thanks for the chance and for all your hard work that you do for us. Janet

    ReplyDelete
  70. Yes, I love to make multiple cards. It always seems easier to do than to just make one card. Love this cartridge and have so many fun ideas for it.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Sometimes I make multiples not often though. I like it better to have a unique one of a kind card. This is a must have cartridge. Thank you for a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I don't usually make multiples at home, but as we start a card ministry at church, I will definitely be doing that! Your little flower card is so cute!!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Lovely card Joy! I regularly don't do multiples except when I am in a hurry and my brain is fried LOL! Thanks for the chance to wing!
    Have a wonderful day!

  76. I like to make multiple cards, but I usually make each slightly different. Basically I use the same components and change the layouts.

  77. Most of my cards are individualized so no on doubles. I do usually create intricate folds, those I do make multiples of as a base, then embellish away :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. I love your little 3x3card! I was looking at that same project in the Idea Book and love how you put it all together. You show quite a bit in a small card and it turns out beautifully. I do make many cards at once. Both making the same card multiple times and making numerous cards but with a different twist to each one. I also do the assembly line process and you have a bunch done in a blink. Well maybe a few blinks! lol I am hoping a am the winner of this very cute cart. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  79. It takes me so long to make one card that I would never be able to make multiples. But I had never considered doing it like this. Thanks for sharing this!
