Today’s project is a quick and easy spring card using your Wild Card Cricut Cartridge. This cartridge makes all sorts of cute cards but if you want to cut the envelopes at a usable size, I recommend using the Cricut Expression Machine to cut them. Before you begin, make sure that “Real Dial Size” is turned OFF. In order to figure out what size card I wanted to cut I cut the envelope first using the “Fit to Page” feature. This feature on your machine will determine the largest size of the cut you would like to make that will fit on your page. For this particular card the machine determined that 4 ¾” would be the cut size. You will need to remember this size for your card. I cut the envelope in blue and green. Then I cut the grass part off of the green envelope and adhered it to the blue part, trimming any excess. For this project Zip Dry Paper Glue
is great, the liquid glue gives you time to line up the cuts and gives you a super strong bond with no wrinkles in your paper. Next I set my dial to 4 ¾” and loaded in the yellow card stock to cut my card and the flowers (Liner Function Key). Then I cut a piece of blue card stock at 4 ¾” square and adhered in to the inside of my card for contrast. To finish off my card an envelope I added a few paper flowers from my enormous stash and added rhinestones to the centers of all of the flowers. I also cut two circle of my yellow card stock with a 1 ½” punch so I could give the inside of the flower card a finished look and so my sentiment would stand out. Now it’s ready to brighten up someone’s day!

March Two Chicks Designs Kit

This first photo is a card I made with my March Kit. I really love the flowers in the kit! The flower on my card is made up of a foam orange flower, a white and a blue flower sequin, a little brown button and some foam leaves. The circle is from the sheet of journaling spots included in the kit. I can't wait to pop this cute card in the mail!
This layout cracks me up. The letters are actually from the February kit. You can definitely mix your kits easily! The pictures are of Penny trying to wake up my husbands teenage cousin. She and a friend slept on the couches while we were staying there... I almost felt sorry for her, LOL! The little file folder contains my journaling, the "purple" flower on it is actually iridescent blue but it kept turning purple in the sunlight!
Here is another layout using the March Kit and you'll notice it has an entirely different feel. I like how the buttons by the journaling strips have the same tones as the rocks we were climbing. Believe it or not, there are still more buttons left in my box of Chick N Feed!!! So now that you know you MUST have this kit, head over to to pick one up for yourself!

I can't wait to share the other layouts I have created with this GORGEOUS kit... here's a hint to the next one I have to photograph... it's all about the newest member of our family.... now if the sun will co-operate I can get some photos of it!

A Quick and Easy Spring Card

This week’s project is a quick and easy card! With the weather finally starting to look warmer out I was in the mood for spring!
To make this card I made a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” base from white cardstock. Then I cute my blue patterned paper to 4 ¼” x 5 ½” and adhered it to the front of my card with my Tombow Mono Adhesive. Next I cut the tree branch at 4” and my bird (regular in pink, shadow in white) at 2” with the Home Decor Cricut Cartridge. The branch is a little long but I just trimmed the end. I used my Quickie Glue Roller Pen to adhere the layers of the bird as the tree branch to my card. Next I used my Flower Soft Glue to fill in the wing of the bird. Then I sprinkled Polar White Flower Soft on the wing. Next I made little dots with my Flower Soft Glue on the tree branch where real flower buds would be. Then I sprinkled the Baby Pink Flower Soft onto those dots. Last I stamped the word “Spring” onto a piece of white cardstock with brown ink and added the pink cardstock mat and adhered it to the front of my card. Now it’s ready to bring a little spring to someone special!
