I wanted to make a Cricut Easter Card, and this card is quite a bit different from what I usually do. It has that “old time” vintage feel to it.
The papers were in my stash and the lace is from Stampin’ Up. The die cut is from A Child’s Year Cricut Cartridge. I love this little girl feeding her bunny a carrot!
A Child’s Year might surprise you. This Cricut Cartridge has all kinds of shapes for creating holiday projects.
The scalloped shape behind the black die cut is from the Songbird Cricut Cartridge. I use it pretty often. It gives my cards a more finished look then just a circle or oval.
It has been “ONE OF THOSE DAYS”! Ughh! I usually enjoy Mondays, since I’m off, but nothing has gone according to my plan so far.
I’m taking a break and having lunch and managed to finally get this card uploaded. (I soooo want a new computer, but keep putting it off!) Enjoy your day and pray for more warm weather!!
Here is a fun project you can make when you only have a few photos to share. It is perfect for kids to make and give to their grandparents or aunts and uncles. Mini Envelope scrapbooks are the perfect size for 8 or fewer photos. They are free standing, and their compact size makes them perfect for nursing home residents. I used CD Envelopes, but you can easily adapt this envelope scrapbook by using letter envelopes, business, envelopes, or coin envelopes. You will learn how to make a book to use for photos or a school project. You can decorate this mini book with stickers, foam shapes, buttons, or die cuts. Aunts and Grandparents would love to get a little book like this as a gift! Any type of scrapbooking adhesive will work for this project….tape runner, glue stick, or glue tape. You will also need a paper trimmer.
This article is more for beginner’s, but please feel free to comment on what types of adhesives you like. One of the most common scrapbooking and card making questions is…What kind of scrapbooking adhesive do you use? That’s not always a simple question. The answer is…It depends on what I’m working on! I know that it can be really confusing at first, but here’s a basic run down on which adhesives I like.

Glue Dots are also nearby when I’m working on projects. I love the Dot-n-Go Glue Dots that come in the dispenser. They are easier to use and easier to see than the ones that come on a roll or sheet. You can get them in regular size and mini. They are great for buttons, metal, glass, and ribbon. I also use them on paper if the paper is glossy or curled. It’s almost impossible to find adhesive to stick to some glitter papers, but glue dots work well. I also use them if I’ve used brads or eyelets and want to stick that paper I’ve embellished to another piece of paper or cardstock. Because the back of the paper isn’t smooth, it may difficult to adhere, but glue dots work well. A few words of caution…..Glue dots are very sticky! They can take of nail polish and will definitely tear your paper if you get one stuck where you don’t want it. The glue dot dispensers are $5.50-$6.00 Tacky Tape is also in this category. It comes on a roll, and you cut it to the length you need. It is super sticky! It’s great for making pocket pages and 3D paper crafting projects like gift bags, boxes, and party favors.
