Guest Post by a Junior Designer

Here’s a cute little post by my first “guest designer.”  This was a card my little guy made for his Papa (Grandpa)  this week for his birthday.  He had to have the pumpkin.  Knew exactly which one (Stretch Your Imagination). He picked all the papers, the card base and the eyes and picked the two sizes himself.  No, he didn’t want to use a rubber stamped greeting.  He wanted it done on the Cricut too—on white paper.  He did all the gluing except for the stem.  And then he wrote his name!  All.By.Himself.  For the first time in pen.   He’s been writing, just not any type of paper that could be saved.  It was awfully hard sending that one out the door so I took lots of pictures.

Getting into the Spirit of things

I’m testing my new blog publishing software using Windows Live Writer for the first time ever. I hope I can be better at updating my blog if it’s easier.  Here’s a card I made last year around this time for Christmas. 

This is from the Christmas Solutions Cricut Cartridge.

Hip Hip Hooray birthday card


One extra fold added a lot to this card. It made it nice and dimensional without hardly any effort.


.
Used the flower that was cut from the hippo's bum to add to the inside of the card for a nice touch.

My son has informed me just now that it's missing something.  Googley eyes!
