Cut It Up Challenge #270 - Love

Hello crafters! Welcome to our Cut It Up Challenge this week, which is Love. We are getting very close to February and to Valentine's Day so this challenge is perfect. Here is the card I made for this challenge:


 I found this card on the Cricut website and cut it out on my Cricut Joy
I added the You die: My Creative Time
Plain and glitter paper: Cricut Card Pack

After I finished this card, I started thinking it needed something else. I think I will add some sequins to it. This was a very simple card to make. 

I hope you will join our challenge. Remember to use a die cut on your project. You can check out all the other amazing design team projects at Cut It Up.

Cut It Up Challenge #267 - Christmas

Hello crafters! I hope you are all well. I have been sick for the past week. I took two different Covid tests because a couple of my co-workers had Covid recently. Thankfully, I was negative both times and it turns out I have a sinus infection. They gave me meds at urgent care and I'm starting to feel much better. I'm so far behind on everything but I'm sure somehow it will all get done. I'm trying to just enjoy the season. I took a drive last night to look at Christmas lights in my neighborhood. That always makes me happy!

Our Cut It Up challenge this week is Christmas. Here is the card I made:

Pattern Paper: Stampin Up
Glitter Paper: Close to My Heart
Wreath and leaves dies: Stampin Up
Bow and tag dies: My Creative Time
Sentiment and Ink: Stampin Up
Rhinestones: Recollections
