Homemade Christmas Gift Sets with the Cricut - Episode 253

Happy Monday Everyone!!!

I hope you all had an outstanding weekend!  I had a GREAT one!  Yesterday the Primary children performed in our church's Sacrament meeting.  I have been teaching them the songs all year long and they did PERFECT!  Everything went very smoothly and you could definitely feel the spirit of peace in the room.  Beautiful!!

Okay, I made this video for you guys on Saturday but was having tech difficulties so I couldn't get it posted until now.  I hope you enjoy it!!

  7. I love making cards as well. If you make extra they can be donated to soldiers for operation write home.(owh) they dont need envelopes and no glitter. I make 4-6 cards and always set couple aside for OWH.

  12. I am planning on doing some card sets this year. It was great to see your process :) I don't comment as often as I used to because you get SO much love I can't imagine how long it takes you to read everything! *LOL* I'm always watching and enjoying all your wonderful projects - and my 2 year old daughter LOVES to snuggle mommy on the couch while we watch your videos on the laptop. Thanks for all you do to inspire and teach all of us!

  13. I am so happy your back with your videos. It really makes my day when I see how creative you are. I was thinking of doing the same this year for both grandmas since they are so great about sending birthday cards and such to their grandkids and others. I love the Smiley cart as well. Thanks Robyn

  49. Wow you are inspiring me!! If I start now maybe I can do it. What a great video. I love my Gypsy for this purpose. Just completed a project of cutting out 75 Christmas
    tags for R.S. Craft night and it helped so much to lay them out on the Gypsy. (and I was able to do that work in the car) :)
