Valentine's Day Card

First, I'm so tired today, I stayed up watching the Olympics, anyone else watching them? 

As most of you already know I am a scrapbooker, yep, I'm nerdy like that. While I don't get to do it very often any more, but have the equivalent to a Micheal's in our guest room, I do enjoy any excuse to break out my stuff and create something.

I have a Cricut Expression. It looks like this:


It's one of the most amazing machines ever invented, okay I might be exagerating, but it's a pretty cool machine. You can pretty much cut shape/lettering out and then use this:

 If you don't know what this does, they make stickers. Yep that's right, you stick anything in there, and it puts a sticky backing on it, and viola you have a sticker.

I digress, with Valentine's THIS WEEK I thought that I would re-create some cards that I made a couple of years ago for some friends.

They looked like this:

This insides looked like this:

apparently I didn't know how to spell pretty when I made these, oops!

Everything was cut using the Cricut, how cool is that? So if you don't have one, go out and get one and start creating. I think this years card, will look really similar to those owl ones up there. Need to finish them by Wednesday so I can mail them out. Wish me luck.

Happy Monday!


  1. I love scrapbooking too, but just don't have time. My baby turns 3 next week and I still haven't even started his scrapbook. :(
    I was debating if I should get a cricket or not, but it just looks so intimidating!!

  2. That is so cute and so fun. Um, I think I might to get myself one of those machines!
