January's projects!

I have been working on making shadow boxes with funny sayings!  I thought this one was a hoot!  

You can see the dies I used to decorate this frame.  I love Sam from Mixed Up Crafts.  She
has a fabulous video tutorial that explains how to make this Shadow Box Frame.  It is a 6 x 6 frame and just the right size for my project. You can find her video here-

I saw a similar card to the card above on Pinterest.  It was made with a bunch a dies that I 
couldn't afford so I thought I would try and recreate it with my Cricut.  I thought it came out pretty good.  

I used these adorable bear stamps from My Favorite Things!  I just love these guys!

I am going to use this card for my Brother-in-laws birthday...shhh... don't tell. 
I hope he likes my birthday sentiment!

This card will fold to mail!

But I thought the card was a little small.  It does fit nicely into a regular envelope but I
think I like my cards just a little larger.

So I used my Cricut and enlarged it by about 1/2 inch.  I really like the extra space to
add more to decorate.  Lately, I have been in love with Gnomes, all things Gnomes!!

Here are a couple of pictures of my Gnome card.  I still need to add a sentiment to the front and
to the back.  But I wanted to show you how much room you have to add all kinds of embellishments. 

So these are the projects I have been working on so far for January.  Feels good to be
crafting again.  After being sick with Co-Vid I wasn't sure when I would feel up to working on my projects.  But I am back and feeling great.  I have been playing golf too!  We are looking forward to having my sister and her husband come to visit us next week!  I am hoping the weather will be good so we can plan all kinds of out door activities and get into all kinds of trouble!! Should be fun!!
Hope everyone stays healthy!!



  1. Who made the original "Have a BEARY Good Birthday" template? Where can I find it? Glad you are feeling better.

  2. I love the bear/gnome card!!! I would love your template. Do you have a link to share, or are you selling it?
    Thanks for sharing,

  3. Hi Judy,
    No I don't have a template since I designed it on my cricut. I know MFT sells the dies to make this card. If you ever made a card in a box...its quite similar. Only it is on an angle.


  4. Are you willing to share your Cricut cut file?

  5. I am willing to share but don't know how...right now in hospital recovering from pneumonia caused by weakened immune system from Co-Vid. How would I share my Cricut file?

  6. Oh my goodness!!!! Its been a month since I saw this post. I hope you are home feeling much better.

    To share a Cricut file, there is a share link at the top and you simply share the cut file name. I can help you when you are able to do it.

  7. I was working my Design Space this afternoon, and I thought I would share with you on how to share a project. On your Project page, under the specific project, you will see 3 little circles on the left-hand side. Click on those - and up comes share a link - copy that to your clipboard and then paste it. I'll share my email address with you so you don't have to paste it here, on your blog. My email address is: Huge thanks!!!
