Teacher Christmas Gifts - Homemade Christmas

And then there were 8! I'm so glad to have more followers today than yesterday! Ok so on to the crafting!

I have a bit of an obsession with collecting Cricut cartidges. I have so many that I have not really dug into what each has to offer. As a challenge to myself, I set out to make every card on the Cricut wild card cart (one of my favs!)

What started out as a cool idea to learn about a cart and to create a card stash became gifts for my children's teachers. I decided to create 5 to 7 unique blank cards to give to each teacher for their personal use throughout 2011. Sounds reasonable right?

Although this labor of love was time consuming, I was really feeling good about it. Then I got worried... I was trying to thank the teachers by giving them a gift that they would not untimately keep. What kind of gift is that??? I was pleasantly surprised that everyone went nuts over the cards. I discovered it's the kind of gift that keeps on giving. Our family gives to theirs and they can share it with those they love and receive love back. priceless and not the run of the mill gift.

While I didn't take a picture of all of the cards, I did snap a few of my favorites. How do you like them? I packaged the cards in a cello bag and topped it with a card I made using another favorite Cricut cartridge -create a critter. The sentiment "Joy" is cut from Cricut Cartridge joys of the season.


  1. I forgot to say the joy card base was from the plantin schoolbook cart.
