  1. This looks like a wonderful set! I love making elegant cards the most, but cutesy cards can come in handy - for little ones or when a laugh is just needed!

  3. I do prefer elegant cards, but cutesy cards have their place, too! Joy, this is a wonderful, colorful card you made. It would make someone very happy to receive it! TFS!

  4. I make both cutesy and elegant cards. I facilitate a card making group of women every month. I try to mix it up a bit with the types of cards we make. Usually, the cutesy cards get the most favorable reaction, but elegant cards have their place also, for some birthdays, sympathy and get well. Thanks for all you do for us.

  5. I love the swing cards, I just love it when I can send someone a card that does a bit more! Thank you for sharing your swing card with us! I love to make both types of cards but I guess my "go to" would be elegant. I'm really not sure why, because I am not an elegant person, so I guess it is the clean finished look. I do have to say I enjoy making cutesy cards as well, I think there is a time and place for both type of cards. Thank you again for sharing all your creativity!

I now have 2 granddaughters which give me the occasions for cutesy cards as well as birthdays for my friends. Thanks, Joy for the video....can't wait to get my cartridge after the 1st of Oct (my time limit)!! This swing card is so pretty..you 'glamed' it up perfectly!!!

  13. Isn't it cool that the cartridge can help us make such sophisticated looking cards? It would take a good amount of time to fussy card a card of like that. Pretty cool that the Crciut can do it in just a matter of minutes! Pretty card:)

  27. I like making elegant cards.....but the cutesy cards appeal to my students.. I'm a crossing guard for my local middle school and over the years, I have gotten to know the students and especially the hard-working and crafty teachers. The teachers get together to create hand-made cards for the school bazaar and any cards left over are taken to the local shelters. We use the Cricut machine to help with our production line. Works great! Just think what we can create , if we were to win this cartridge. Thank you for some of the most beautiful cards.

  31. Yes I like to make elegant cards and I like to make cutesy cards, too! I like to make cards that "move" too!! (Especially for my 4 year old Granddaughter who lives far away from me now.)

  37. Hi Joy, I really love all the cards that you have done using the "Artfully Sent" cricut cartridge. I'm having trouble making the envelopes that go with the cards. I either make them too small or too big. I have tried using the cartridge with both the explore machine and the expression and I run into the same problem. HELP PLEASE! -Jackie-
