2022 Comes to an End!

Here is my first batch of Christmas cards I made to send out this year. The tree is made from my Cricut and the paper collection is from Graphic 45's Warm Wishes which is so pretty! It is an upright Z fold style card. I made a total of 45 Christmas cards but I did do a second style card which I have pictured below. I say this every year, I need to start earlier!!
December started out warm but then got cold and now it is warm again. We went with friends to see Christmas lights at Nyte Walk in Lebanon Maine and they were beautiful! It was the first year for this venue! The owner said that they were inspired by Sandy Hill which is located in Eliot, Maine. Here are some pictures of us having fun!
Lastly, the last birthday card I made for 2022 was for my brother in law. His birthday was on the 18th and he loves coffee! I am again so proud of myself that I used my cricut for his card. The hand holding the coffee cup was the image I made on cricut. Happy Birthday Russ!

Successful Christmas Craft Fair

My Husband helped me with a Christmas Fair this past weekend. It was very successful. The people who attend these craft fairs are the nicest people. We sold out of our Nutcracker gift boxes, our hersey bar stocking stuffers and sold a lot of our lighted frames which measure 9x9. Lots of our gnomes were sold too! Here are some photos of a closer look at some of the items that were in our craft fair.
Sisters Designs are my twin sisters and me. They were celebrating their 70th birthday at Disney so they weren't able to attend but I made them a Disney card for the occasion. My other siblings all contributed to their birthday gift which, of course, were gift cards to use at Disney! Happy Birthday Chris & Connie!

More November Birthdays

This style card is called a vertical stepper card by Mixed Up Crafts/Sam Calcott. She always does a great job explaining her projects that she does. I made this for a friend you loves fairies! I hope she likes it!
One of my favorite style card to make is a card in a box! This birthday card is for my sister-in-law. Her birthday was just before Thanksgiving and she loves wine like me. I found all these sayings on Pinterest and had a ball putting this card together. Now that Thanksgiving is over and we are into the Christmas season, I am getting ready for one last craft fair this weekend. It is a 2-day craft fair in South Portland, Maine. My husband is going to help out since my sisters are vacationing in Florida. Hope we have a good turn out. Here is a picture of our table that we set up a couple of weeks ago to see what we should bring. Let the Christmas fun begin!

Happy November!

Yesterday was a good friend's birthday and he is 70! Love making these twisted 4-panel cards. I have a die from Karen Burniston that makes this style card but I used to make them without the die, so it can be done. Happy 70th Birthday Tom! Last month we had fun going to my friend's house for Cricut camp! Here are some pictures from her Cricut camp and what we made! The jointed Santas were fun to make! I hung mine up when I got home! Thank you Cindy for holding this fun day!
My Halloween haunted house that I gave out to the little trick or treaters this year. I used the tutorial from Splitcoaststampers tutorial under milk carton box. It was the perfect size to hand out to them.
Today is Veteran's Day and I wanted to thank all the Veteran's that have made this country safe! Thank you for your service! Here is my favorite veteran!

October Birthday & Wedding!

My son's birthday was on the 12th! Here is the card that I made for him! He bought himself a guitar and is taking lessons so I thought this was be a perfect card for him this year. The guitar is a template that I had and the record player is what I made on my cricut. We were able to celebrate with him this year because we were in San Francisco for his wedding. We are so happy for him and his new wife, Sabrina!
October 7th, 2022 at 11:30 am at San Francisco City Hall! It was a great weekend with this happy couple! Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Petersen!

Happy October!

My daughter's birthday was last month but I wanted to share the card I made from my cricut for her birthday! She has a gorgeous Golden Retriever named Ollie! My husband and I are his daycare provider when my daughter is working. He is so adorable!
Below are a few pictures of some other cards that I made for September and October birthdays!
This is a fun Z fold card with Karen Burniston's cupcake die.
This style is a fun cube card that closes up for mailing. This style was a first for me and I loved making it.
A Butterfly closure for this Anniversary card. The neat thing about this style card you can use any image that works for your card as long as you can fold it in half to open the card. Love it! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my cards!
