The Spirit of the Season - Family

My best friend Lucia and her husband had a beautiful baby girl in November; and this is their first christmas enjoying their gift from above :) ... perfect celebration in the spirit of the season!

I wanted to make her a card that was special and captured their joy. This is what I came up with.

Snowman - cut 4'' using Speaking of Winter (love this versatile cartridge)
snowflake - Martha Stewart punch (delicate snowflake)
"The Spirit of the Season" - Inkandinkado stamp.
DCWV Christmas Glitter Paper (love this pattern paper for this year) and color cardstock is DCWV as well.
Put a bit of glitter on their knitted hats :)

Thanksgiving Dinner Invites

Celebrating Thanksgiving and hosting the family dinner is something my husband and I love to do. For this year's invites, I got help from Jen and her cut file to make these pocket cards. Check out her blog entry.

If you don't have DS, you can go here to Splitcoaststampers to find out the measurements for how to cut/fold it. .

I recently discovered Pooh and Friends cartridge and realized that it has many seasonal images to cut; and i'm having a great time thinking of new ways to use it :)

Card: 5 1/2'' by 4 1/4''
Insert: 3 1/4'' by 5''
Pumpkins - cut at 2 3/8'' with Pooh and Friends
Happy Thanksgiving - cut at 2'' real size with Wild Card
"You're Invited" - studio G stamp
felt leaf - Target $ Bin.
Paper is DCWV Fall Stacks.

This is last year invite:

Cute Birdie Birthday Card

I bought Happily Ever After and am absolutely please with my purchase; so many possibilities as good cartridges tend to have. I also love my Zooballoo cartridge.

I used both for a card I made for someone who is like a lil' sister turning 18!!! This card was also done using Design Studio (with a .cut file that stacie0805 was so nice enough to post on the Cricut MB and on her blog, StacieKnits (see her original creation)`. I adapted a little bit to fit the look I wanted; always appreciate when others share!).

Bird: cut at 2 3/4" using Happily Ever After
Branches- sized by Design Studio using Zoballooo
Stamp: "Two You" by Stampendous
Cuttlebug: Branches embossing folder
"Cori"- used the welding option from Design Studio (w/Plantin SchoolBook)
Paper: Shimmer Paper is Wausau (bought at HSN), the green gilitter paper is from DCWV Glitter Stack and rest of the carstock is DCWV.
Used my Prisma markers to color/match paper.
