Miscellaneous Cards I've Made

These are just old cards I made back when I first got my Cricut E2.


Happy Birthday Robot Theme Card

I waited till the last minute to make this guy for my nephew's birthday. I recommend not ever waiting till the last minute to finish a card. It can be very stressful! The little robot arms kept interlocking with each other and the Happy Birthday sign, but with a few 3D dots, I was about to secure and control how the robots would lay when the card was opened or closed. Anyways, it was a success! So well worth the stress fussing over it.
Cartridge Used: Cricut Robot Party Paper: Michael s card stock, Monsters & Robots Kids Paper, other misc paper. Other: Eyes are embellishments from Michaels.

Valentine's Day Card in a Box & Kid Valentines

Hello everyone! This is my most recent project. They're Valentine Cards in a Box for my son's teachers and little hearts with heart lollipops for my first son's preschool class mates. I didn't originally plan them to look like this, but I figured they would be ripped up by little hands to get to the candy, so I told myself that they don't have to be perfect or a lot of detail. So, I put most of my effort in to the teachers cards.

Card in a Box: For Boys!

I am part of a few Facebook Groups that target card making and Cricut. So I found this wonderful new trend called: Card in a Box. I followed the measurements from a lady on YouTube called; Serene Stamper Channel.

Measurements: Cut card stock 8 1/4"x9". Score along the 9" side; 2 1/8", 4 1/4", 6 3/8", 8 1/2", Turn 90·. Score at 2 3/4". With the 8 1/4" side on top and the 2 3/4" side on the left, cut at 6". Take the scrap piece and cut at 3 1/8", turn pice and cut in half you'll have two pieces to be inserted in your card box to hold your items. I really recommend watching the above video by Serene Stamper Channel. Very helpful! Cricut Cartridge(s): Create a Critter 2
Note: I got the sports team logo from various websites.

I made a card for a friend's son, who is turning one this month. They're big fan's of the Portland Timbers. I had posted my card on the group and a lady asked me if I was willing to make her one f…

Baptism Invite, Witness Pins, & Other

INVITATIONS This was my second son's baptism invitation. I used Create a Critter 2. The theme was lions since my son's name is Leonidas, which means lion in Greek. The color scheme I went with was a light boy blue, with a nice cheery orange. I absolutely loved making these invitations, and I was extremely happy with the way they came out.
TABLE DECORATIONS These are my table arrangements for the reception. I made a little over a dozen arrangements for the dinner table. I found an adorable pin on Pinterest to make these from: (I will need to find the person who I got this idea from and post it here-Coming Soon). To sum it up. I cut 1x1" squares of coordinating fabric and them lightly pressed them in the Styrofoam ball with my Martha Stewart Embossing Tool. They were hit! Everyone wanted to take one home. PARTY FAVORS These are the party favors. I made each box with Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More 2 Cricut Cartridge. I was up till 3:00AM assembling these babies! It was a LOT o…

Create a Critter 2 Cards

This is a Valentine's Day card I made for my sister-in-laws co-worker for a Valentine's Day Card Swap back in 2012. It was my first card I ever made! I used Create a Critter 2 Cricut Cartridge.
This is a gift tag I made for a friends baby shower. As you can see she was having a boy!

Valentine Flower Wreath

This is one of my first projects that I made when I got my Cricut Expression 2, in Christmas 2012! I used two Cricut cartridges; Giant Flowers and Flower Shoppe (I LOVE these cartridges and use them a lot).
I curled the petals with a Martha Stewart Embossing Tool Set that I purchased from Michaels Store. There are some wonderful tutorials on YouTube by some talented women on how-to curl petals.
