Life's a Party Episode #1

Hi Everyone,
I hope everyone had a nice weekend? It was nice and relaxing at our house. Saturday we went out eat and Sunday I had a little crafty party here with a friend and my mom. It was a nice relaxing weekend.

Here is the first Episode in the Life's a Party Cricut cartridge series. Ethan will be 9 at the end of Feb. and he loved so many of the cuts on this cartridge that he went with a pirate theme for his party. Figured since I was going to be working with this cartridge for the party and wanted to get a head start on decorations, invites, and party favors that we can do this cartridge as the series. There are so many awesome shaped cards on this cartridge. I hope you enjoy the series...




Have a great Monday and
Happy Crafting,

  16. Those are going to be great invites. When my kids were young, we did all themed parties, this cart would have been so nice to have back then. Well, the Cricut in general would have been a huge help. LOL!
    Thanks for this video, as always, well done!
