Homemade For The Holiday Series #1: Making Holiday Cards


Hello,
I hope you all had a great weekend :)
Today we're starting a new video series called "Homemade For The Holidays".
Every year I make some sort of gift for a family member and this year I thought I share those ideas with you.  I've made gift card holders, treats for my niece and nephews, and even a hand scrub for my fellow co-workers. I love the feeling of giving and handmade makes it even more fun.

Our first video is making holiday cards. The past few years I've been making a few batches of holiday cards to take to work and send out to other departments and library's. Here is the first set for this year.

DIY Pressing Board for Cricut Easy Press

Hello Everyone,
I hope you all had a great weekend. I can't believe Thanksgiving is around the corner. Have you started prepping and planning yet?

Todays video is a DIY on how to make a pressing board you can use with your Cricut Easy Press. I ordered a Steady Betty from Amazon but there was a delay for a few weeks in receiving it. I couldn't wait any longer to use the Easy Press so I found out how to make one. DIY!!!

As I mentioned in my video I'm in love with the Cricut Maker. I think this is the best version of the Cricut yet. It's taking paper crafting to a whole new level.

We R Memory Keeper Tab Punch Board Video

{Supplies are listed below in the thumbnails at the end of the blog post}

Hello Everyone,
Happy Friday! Are you ready for the weekend? What are your crafty plans this weekend?
I'm going to get all my usual weekend chores done quickly and hitting the craft room on Sunday. It's supposed to be a rainy day and I really want to spend the day playing with all these ideas I have brewing around in my head. There are so many things I want to try out.
One big thing I want to work on is updating my tabs for my stamp and die storage. I did a video on this a while back and it's still the same, I just want to change out the colored dividers.
