Cricut Yellow and Purple Birthday Presents Card

I made this card using my Cricut. It is a “drawer card”. When Idk what to do with a projectat I stuck it in a drawer after I didn’t like what I did with that. I’m finally sifting through these projects and deciding what to do with them. Unfortunately, like this one, they’re NOT very pretty. But since yellow and purple are complementary colors I don’t mind this one as much…it’s not that bad. Idk, I have mixed feelings on this card, do I like it or do I not like it?

Gabe Sophomore Year (Everyone has that one yucky school picture)





I have quite a few of these instruments cut from Cricut. Percussions are not drumline like these images imply. Number stamps by Stampin Up. Double stamped on top...on purpose. (giggle-giggle, not really.) the “Age 15” stamps are by Lawn Fawn. I wrote with a Creative Memories marker his two favorite classes! music and AP History. Hx are the letters used in medical-land to represent the history of the patient. The word ‘Sophomore’ is a clear sticker and is enclosed by a simple border stickers by Creative Memories. I cut the 12” border at its end and used the small piece to make a rectangle. There are small music notes

Floral Friday Wild Patterned Paper Thank You Card

The ugly patterned paper is by Accord Publishing. If you look below closely you can see the second die under the sentiment is patterned paper is by We R Memory Keepers. The top layer of the sentiment is an old wallpaper sample. I thought the rustic look went with the flowers. Idk about the Thank you die cut. The strips of paper in the center, underneath the sentiment, I found them on the floor. I liked the way it brought your eyes to the sentiment and made the sentiment placed and not just floating. Those dies are by Spellbinders. Thanks for looking.

Best Easter Wishes Cross Cards

My first card, the embossing folder is by Cuttlebug. The patterned paper is by K and Company. The image was downloaded from the internet probably 15 years ago. I don’t know why I printed it so small and on photo paper. My only guess would be for an ATC. 
For my second card, I have two pattern papers by K and Company. The Scalloped ovals are diecuts by Spellbinders. The cross stamp is by Stampin Up and I used the Creative Memories cutting system to make it an oval. The sentiment was downloaded from a company that is no longer in business. You can easily re-create the same sentiment in a Word document or a Google sheet. Thanks for looking.
