Father’s Day is only a few weeks away! I made some cute Father’s Day cards with a folded shirt and tie on the front. I got the idea for the shirts from Martha Stewart’s website. I cut the “Dad” out on my Cricut with Sure Cuts A Lot 2, and adhered the letters on with my Xyron.

Don’t forget, Father’s Day is June 19th!

I bought a few new Cricut cartridges that I haven’t had a chance to use out yet so I thought I’d try out Four Legged Friends and make an Easter card. There are some really cute animal cuts on this cart.

I also tried out my print Gocco for the first time! It was pretty easy to burn a screen. I drew a couple of lambs using the Riso carbon pen and got it on my first try. I did try Speedball block printing ink first and it didn’t come out very well. I may try it again in the future, but I’ll stick with the Gocco inks until they run out.


I picked up the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge at Michael’s the other day for $15! I also grabbed Paisley, From My Kitchen and Pooh Font Set for the same price. What a great deal. I really wanted Wild Cards as well, but it was already sold out.

I made a simple card and some Valentine’s Day tags from the Sweethearts cartridge.


Valentine’s Day is coming up! I made this funny “I love you”, card for that special someone.

Chinese New Year falls on February 3rd in 2011. As it’s the year of the rabbit, I’ve designed some cute cards available in my newly opened Etsy shop!

I picked up the Pagoda cartridge from Michaels on Boxing Day for $25! I also grabbed Winter Woodland for the same price. I tried out the Pagoda cartridge today and made a couple of quick cards.
