A Elegantly Easy Christmas card and other Christmas treats

Hi Terri here with another stamping project!

A few weeks ago I made a simple but elegant Christmas card and have finally gotten around to sharing the beauty of this card with you.

This card uses Stampin Up's new Core'dinations Gumball Green cardstock which can be distressed or sanded to show the coordinating under layer. I added a flourish designer frame around the ornament found in the Joyous Celebrations stamp set and embeliished with cherry cobbler sweater trim.

Want to know how easy this card was to put together? Well, good because I made a video!

I've also made some Hershey nugget Christmas treats for my friends. These were inspired by a video Tangee posted here a week or so ago. These are also very easy to make! Instructions from Tangee's video:
Cut 4 pieces of 1x3" DSP strips, 1 piece of coordinating cardstock 2x4" and score 1/4" on both long sides. Secure the the DSP strips on Hershey nuggets using glue dots; place a line of tape runner down the center of the cardstock and press the covered nuggets on top. Place the tray inside a pretzel rod bag, tie with ribbon and voila, a little Christmas love for someone special!

Hi everyone!

It's been almost 2 years since I posted... YIKES! It's been a little hectic on my end but I have been playing lately and hope tohave more posts.

I'm writing mainly because I noticed that the graphics on my blog has disappeared and I'm looking into why that has happened. I'm also looking into migrating to WordPress.

I've been making a lot of t-shirts lately and will post about them once everything is settled. For those of you that area actually still around - I appreciate it! I hope to bring a fresh new beginning to Kricut Krazy and become super active once again. I've missed you all dearly!

Hugs and Happiness!

Scoring with the Cricut Explore!

So, one of the cool new things is the ability to score and cut at the same time.  I'm finding myself needing the score ability quite frequently.  You should see me trying to hand score something - I'm never 100% accurate.... like ever.  So here is the handy dandy score tool by Cricut.

 So Yesterday I needed to make about 50 treat bags for a staff party at work on Halloween.  The first couple of bags I scored by hand. Oh... bad idea. They were crooked.  So I'm eyeballing the score tool holder thingy.  I had ordered one via amazon but it wouldn't be in until the next day, Me? Wait? NAH!  So I'm looking around my tool drawer and I find this embosser I bought many moons ago to use with Brass Stencils.  I put it in and shut the clamp thingy and away we go!  Y'all!!!!!!!! It worked.  Holy cow it worked.  You can see the score mark below.  How exciting is that!?

Today I get home from work and my new score tool is waiting for me.  Except I left it in the package. For …
