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!!

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.

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!

Carol said...

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

I have a question about the boxes. Which size, at clearbox.com, do you get to fit your cards?

Thanks so much!

Another inspiring video, biggest problem is that it makes me want to drop everything and go pull my supplies out and I should be finishing getting my house ready for my Thanksgiving guests. Thanks Robyn!

jamme Linda said...

I just love all your ideas and helpful hints. Great video. I wish you would have told which cartridges you had used on the cards though. I think I'm going to ask for some of your punnylicious stamp sets for my b-day. Just love them.

Regal said...

such a great idea!! the gypsy is so helpful with projects like this!!! I hope i can get one soon!

raising4boys said...

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) :)

Anna said...

Thanks so much for the video ! I always enjoy all your ideas !! Thanks !

Deneen said...

Thanks Robyn! Love the clear box. When I need a card for someone, I make 6 of them and put the other five in a box for future use.

cricutkris said...

Great idea. You mentioned running out of a color of paper you should use your imagine. I like the look of the box with the cards.

Tracy said...

That's so funny you made this video! I made cards for some girls! Did the same thing! I did a different variety and made 8 per bag! It was fun and they get something hand made!

Love the idea of making cards to give away for someonelse to use for Christmas, etc. Everyone who receives my cards always tells me to make cards to sell. You've just gave me the inspiration to get to work! I'm now unemployed & need to make some $. Thanks!!

I put 6 of the little crabs on my gypsy. But I'm not sure where the eyebrows and eyeballs are. Are they on the same button?
