First Cricut cards

Well here are my very first Cricut cards, they're VERY basic. Had to do them in a hurry so didn't have time to play and do anything too complicated BUT I'm really happy with the results.

This one is a retirement card for the Director of Nursing at our local hospital who is retiring, the only info I was given is that he's into books, writing and is going back to university to study, so I decided to do the card like a certificate, anyway I think it turned out quite well for my very first attempt using my cricut!! Also it doesn't show up very well in the photo but I embossed the white background paper.

And I also had a very interested spectator while i was using my Cricut LOL.
Because I haven't made space in my craft room yet I was using the Cricut on my bedroom floor and this little lady was up on my bed. She was fascinated looking at the mat moving, it was SO funny. I couldn't grab the camera quick enough to grab the really good poses that she made but I did managed to capture this one. She's such a howl!!

Here are some other cards that I made using the Cricut, really basic stuff.

And these are some more that I used the cuttlebug embossing folders on, I'm getting addicted to these, also I think I need to change my colours, don't know why I'm doing pinks and blues all the time!!LOL


  1. Well you really are getting to grips with your babies aren't you. Fantastic cards Kate!! - Talking of babies, the pink & blue does feature rather heavily ???
    Oh & I love the stamps on the last couple too!

  2. Hi Kate,

    Mayomom here - great work on your Cricut already!!!
    What cart did you use to cut the flowers?
    The embossed card - what size are they - they look like they are landscape and I thought the cuttlebug folders were the other way IYKWIM.

    Well done again - really inspiring.
