Super Quick Cricut Disney Gift Bags

I must apologize up front for the poor photo. I literally made these gift bags at the last minute for my team for convention (like right before I went to the airport) and so I didn't get a chance to do a proper photo. I'm sorry!

These bags were super quick!  The bags themselves are from Michaels and could be also used for Pirate party or luncheon, depending on which ones you used in the set.

I cut the large Mickey heads at 4" and the initial parts at 2", all layers and all from the Cricut Mickey Font cartridge.  I made 12 bags in total.

Trust me when I say the project is fast...LOL! Literally - right before I left for the airport...

Close to My Heart has announced the product retirement list for the Spring Summer 2014 catalog. These items are on a "while supplies last" type basis so once things sell out, they are GONE! They will not be available after July 31.

Check out the Close to My Heart Product Retirement Items here!

Below are a few stamp sets that are retiring that are some of my favorites. I am sorry to see these go. But these are not all the stamp sets - there are more here.  Also, paper, inks, chipboard items, the bracket frame and more are retiring!

Count Your Blessings:
Glory to God:
Candyland:
Remarkable Wreath:
There will also be a price increase on some items starting August 1!  Take a look below:
Here is the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month for July - a full alphabet stamp set! Normally, these are $29.95 but this month, it's only $5 with a $50 purchase!  WHOOP!

It's just $5 when you spend $50+ at my Close to My Heart shopping page.

Here's a quick link to the online catalog - CLICK HERE if you want a peek.

  3. Nope - in the past I never got around to them until after Thanksgiving. And last year I didn't make them - I got tired of putting all the time and effort into something that most people throw away

  21. I haven't even thought about Christmas cards yet. Right now I am working on a baby album, and then will be making up kits for Operation Write Home card making event in September. This cartridge looks like a good one. Thanks for sharing.

  22. Looks like you work really well under pressure! Those bags are super cute. I have about half my Christmas cards done, i.e. about 40-45. I generally make 85-90, so I'm well on my way. This is the first year I started making cards in January and have finished 4-6 cards (sometimes more) each month. It'll be so great not to have to make them all during November and December.

  26. There's one in every crowd who has to ask in July if we've started our Christmas cards yet - reminds me of the one in every crowd who has to talk about diets when we're out to lunch with girlfriends LOL I think you can figure out my answer :)

  42. I have started thinking about my Christmas cards this year to get an early start and have been looking through your stamp sets for some ideas. I started my Christmas cards last year in late October and sent out 60 cards. I received many compliments and thanks from family and friends. That is my "special" gift to them. I would love the Cricut - Tis the Season cartridge to use on my cards this year. Thank you for your inspiration!!!
