So excited about shared cricut cut files

Found this awesome thread on the cricut website....

http://www.cricut.com/messageboard/tm.aspx?m=2763755&mpage=1

where a bunch of wonderful folks shared cut files for word books! Awesome. I have of course downloaded ALL of them.

So if you want them and want to save yourself some time, just send me a message!

More of the completed Cricut Christmas Cards





And these are the rest that were actually finished.

The Cricut Christmas Cards






I made a few cards using my cricut this year - some of them got finished, some of them did not and are still sitting on one of the tables in my craft room. I really like the fact that with the Cricut, you can have it cut a card for you that uses the image as a cut-out in a window. And with the Cricut Design Studio software, you can save the files and reuse them or share them. These are some of the cards that were actually completed. If anyone would like to have the .cut files, just let me know.

Speaking of the messy craft room





Here it is......the aftermath of making christmas cards this year. No point in tidying up until they are all finished. I'm hiding from the task. Putting it off until tomorrow when one of the tables HAS to come out for XBOX gaming day on Monday.

So many Christmas Cards


So, I'm a little pooped and am not going to post my christmas cards to the blog. If you are a facebook friend you can see them there. If you are an SCS fan, you can check out my gallery - Kanatanewf, on SCS at this address....

However, I will post one of the cards here. For my dearly beloved....this was his card.

I'm a little OCD about my christmas cards - they all have to be different. I am very upset this year that two of them were identical. Grr. And so I don't spend the months of November and December secluded in the craft room for hours on end making Christmas cards, I have registered for the SCS christmas card challenge - 10 cards per month for the first 11 months of the year. That's 110 cards in total - this year I sent out 84...and have a few spares completed and a bunch more not yet completed, lying around in the mess that is my craft room right now.

Upcoming birthdays - Laura's sketch 15




Over at 2Sketches4You http://2sketches4you.blogspot.com/2008/12/lauras-sketch-15.html there was a lovely sketch that I had to use for a few upcoming birthdays in December and January. All three cards use the same sketch, the two male birthday cards use the same papers, but each is very unique. What do you think?
