  4. St. Patrick's Day Crafts 2017 - Layout & Card Ideas

    Elmo St. Patrick's Day Card Ideaby Richelle Naegle Today is your lucky day; in this post, you get not one, but three St. Patrick's Day projects! Sorry, I know St. Patty's is just a couple days away, but I'm just barely getting to around to making these. But better late than never, I always say. So today, we are going to start out with this fun card I made using the Sesame Street Celebrations Cricut cartridge. It features all your favorite Sesame Street characters in designs that are great solutions for a variety of holidays. The card I chose features Elmo, my favorite Sesame Street character. This card ended up being 6" x 6" and Elmo was cut out at 6" with my Cricut Explore Air 2. The second card I made is one of Aaron's designs that we offered with our March 2017 downloads as part of our huge library of free .SVG Downloads. When I saw this card, I was immediately in love with it. I used my Silhouette CAMEO 3 to cut this card out at 4" x 6". It was just 3 easy cuts and I love the results! Continue reading →

  7. Cricut Valentine's Day Craft Projects

    by Richelle Naeglevalentine's layout made with Sweetheart Cricut cartridge I know it's only January, but before you know it, Valentine's Day will be here. I'm getting started a little early and the paper crafter inside of me is OK with that. Today, I made a scrapbook layout and a greeting card. Note: If you are looking for more Valentine's themed inspiration, check out our Sizzix Village Surf Shack project from a week ago, or scroll through our older Valentine's posts. For the layout, I made a 12 x 12 design using designer cardstock. Normally, I don't like to do just one picture alone for an entire scrapbook page, but in this case, I made an exception. We are going to capture our love with a group photo on this layout. I used the Sweetheart Cricut Cartridge to make the balloon heart bouquet and this was a great opportunity to get rid of some leftover paper scraps. The idea of paper strings didn't really appeal to me, so I used ribbon instead. I think it gives the page more depth, personally. The our love and the hearts shapes along the bottom come from the Love Photolights Rub Ons set. This layout is super easy and quick to make. Continue reading →
