I had so much fun playing with my new Cricut Explore and the Artistry collection. I cut out so much stuff that I haven't yet had time to finish all the projects I cut images for. The cricut collections are a great way to make your scrapbook pages or cards simple fit your personal style.

I am very excited to share with you the cards I have created with this wonderful Cricut Collection. As you can probably see I there is a definite Christmas/winter theme to most of them, I have been busy planning for my first card buffet night at the end of the month.

I love the simplicity of this card. I opted to use the debossed side of the cardstock.

I like the layers that are available in this collection. With this card I added some 3D foam tape, liquid glass, and sparkles to add some more interest to the cut images.

I love the simple white on white of this card. I accented it with some silver foil tape and one small sparkle. 

The snowflake border on this card could also be used on a scrapbook layout . . . just adjust the size on your cricut and push the cut button!

I had some cricut sparkle vinyl laying around when I was playing I love how simple yet elegant this card is.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Kirsten's blog.
