My younger brother’s girlfriend, Sarah is a fabulous crafter. She is very arts, and she’s always creating something. I’ve told her before to photograph her fantastic designs, but this was the first time I’ve caught it on camera! For my birthday she gifted me some awesome Anthro stuff, but it was her card, and wrapping that had me at hello….
For her birthday, in October, she received The Cricut Cutter…and now it’s on my Christmas list! You dont have to own the cutter, but I thought I could share this cool crafting machine!
The Cricut® Personal Electronic Cutter machine is the future of home crafting. Simply by touching a button, Cricut® can cut beautiful designs and alphabets for card making, scrapbooking, and paper crafting.
No computer is required, just plug it in. Place your favorite cartridge in your Cricut® and choose from hundreds of designs in 12 different sizes; ranging from 1″ to 5-1/2″! That’s thousands of possibilities! Cutting customized shapes and alphabets has never been easier.
The Cricut® machine weighs only 7 lbs and comes with the George & Basic Shapes cartridge, to get you started
With the Cricut Sarah was able to create me a super-duper cute card… Sarah even transformed a plain ol’ white envelope into a very personalized gift. She obviously put time and effort into making an extremely special gift. With paper, and some beads Sarah made a one of a kind card, that meant a lot to me!
Sarah didn’t stop at the card either…. in our family gifts are always wrapped magazine perfect, and Sarah fits right in!
Sarah shared her special paper flower secret…and I will share it with you! It’s a FREE craft download from Fabric Maven Amy Butler. Sarah made the flower with materials she already had….I mean who doesnt have a ton of cute paper lying around, I am guilty of being a paper queen…so is my mother!
Amy Butler’s website actually has a bunch of fun and fancy FREE downloads that are definitely worth checking out!
So now that Christmas is approaching (a little less than 4 weeks!!!!), I thought that Sarah’s fabulous wrapping, and card making was worth sharing. Even in a down economy gifts can still look just as beautiful as they do in a magazine! Sarah was able to most of her crafting from already owned craft supplies, and took an ordinary brown book and made it extraordinary!
