Flurries and Cricuts in the Air this November

If you live anywhere in the northern parts, like I do, you’ve no doubt already seen some snow flurries in the air.  A recent sighting of a few flakes put me in the mood for some holiday card making, so out came the Cricut Air, my number one crafting assistant. I chose a Make It Now card and a few fun colors…including some silver, gold and white glittery paper and they came together quicker then a trip to the nearest card store. This card does contain an image that is from Simple Holiday Cards, and is available in the monthly subscription, or is available in Design Space for a small fee (usually a buck) if you are not a subscriber.

Do you too want to be able to easily make pretty cards, fun décor and personalized gifts for upcoming holidays? Then you need to treat yourself to a Cricut Explore Air™ — Cricut’s very popular electronic cutting machine. It’s the best DIY crafting tool to be developed since the sewing machine!

The Cricut Explore Air is versatile, easy to use, and allows for very precise cuts. It’s also incredibly affordable, especially since Cricut generously discounted the cost by up to $200 on the machine and bundles — just in time for the holiday crafting season!

With the Cricut Explore Air™, you can cut over 60 different types of material, including paper, fabric, plastic and vinyl to name a few. The Explore Air also features Cut Smart™ technology, which allows you to cut a wide range of shapes and sizes with exceptional precision, from ¼” tall up to 11½” wide x 23½” tall.

This Cricut Explore machine is called the Air because it has built-in Bluetooth® capability. This means you can use Cricut’s free iPad app and design anything you want from your iPad, just like you would on your home computer, but with the convenience of being able to take your projects with you anywhere. Then, you can just wirelessly send your project from your iPad to your Explore Air to bring it to life.

While the Cricut Explore Air is impressive on its own, purchasing it with one of Cricut’s bundle offerings makes it even more valuable. Each bundle comes with different accessories that allow you to expand your creativity and make your crafting projects even more simple and fun to create. Plus, by purchasing your Explore Air with a bundle, you’re able to save a bundle in the process!

My First Card Challenge with Unity – A Christmas Card with CTMH colors

I’ve been making cards for Unity’s Be Inspired Challenge for a couple of months now, but finally…I am going to be brave enough to actually upload an image and enter the card in the challenge.

CLK Unity Sept Challenge

Unity Challenge 32

The challenge, which runs monthly beginning on the 3rd Tuesday, offers up a couple of sketches and a color combo which can be followed loosely using Unity Stamps.  I chose one of their newer Poinsettia stamps, as I thought that would work nicely for a pinkish bloom, which I thought matched CTMH’s Taste of Summer papers perfectly for a nontraditional Christmas card. I added a touch of glitz with the Foil Tape, which is an extra shiny Washi-like tape which I just love and know I will be using a lot, and a few Bitty Sparkles. The card was quick and easy to put together, and I’ll be throwing some more together in some more traditional colors too.

I can’t wait to see what the next challenge Unity does.  I love their stamps, and doing challenges,  which I plan to be posting more of.
