Episode 180 - Just Because Cards

How exciting to be a part of this release!! I think these cartridges are AMAZING!!!!

The projects in this post were from
Cricut Just Because Cards Cartridge. Super easy to make and assemble cards with this cartridge.


I am really looking forward to summer. No school, lazy days, and eating lots of watermelon! This card will be perfect to give to someone during the hot days of summer!!

I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the black piece of cardstock. Black Stickles were added to the seeds.

This birthday card was sooo easy to make! I love how the top layer is a scalloped rectangle. I am LOVING scallops still and it has been over 3 years since they were HOT!!

Don't those flowers look good enough to eat up? Of course, if I was given a cake with flowers on it I don't think I would eat them!

Here is a simple card video made using this cartridge. I love ladybugs!! Actually, I don't think there are many things that I don't love. Well......... maybe seafood. YUCK!!

  19. Light bulb moment! Watching your video has just explained to me why I haven't been getting phrases to cut out at the size I want....I haven't been using "Real Dial Size"!!! Duhh!!! The phrases have been cut in proportion to the card...I feel so dumb... :(
    But I have learned something today..Thanks Robyn!!!

    Thank you so very much Robyn for giving us a peek into this cart.

    I am not looking forward to summer, but I can totally understand why you are. I hate the 112 degree temps that we get in summer. I love Spring, Fall and even Winter here, but I also don't get the SNOW that you do. So I will say I am looking forward to Spring.

    Take care and thanks again.
