Happy February! Here is a card I made for my grandmother. I used a simple box card file and just filled it up with love! Now we shall see what Canada Post thinks about this card and what my postage will be. Eek! *Update* Postage was $1.90 within Canada.
Have a "love"ly day!

Anybody out there make some scrappy resolutions? I try to make some each year. Last year, I did well. I am up to August 2015 in our family scrapbook. I think the only reason I'm not more up to date is because Christmas projects take so much time. Therefore, my first resolution is to take less time on Christmas projects! Just kidding...
My 2016 Scrappy Resolutions
#1 Finish scrapping 2015.
#2 Create a Christmas 2015 album. I am considering a pocket-style album for this which I have never done before.
#3 Learn the Design Space Android App as soon as it is released.
#4 Take more photos!
#5 Have fun with vinyl. I have been playing a bit with vinyl and would like to try some HTV.
Here is a coffee station with wall vinyl that my husband and I created this December.

Day Twelve is a canvas I made for my mantel. I have not done many projects like this so I was still learning as I went.
Lesson 1 - Transfer tape is your friend
Lesson 2 - Placing a book in the middle of the canvas makes the vinyl stick much better
Yay! All twelve projects are complete which includes 50 handmade cards, 20 tags, 6 pop up gift card holders, 7 hot cocoa sliders, 1 scrapbooking layout and 1 canvas!

It is December 16th - Crunch time! If you are making cards, I imagine you want them to be simple and quick. Here is my suggestion. It is from the Cricut cartridge Simple Pop Up Cards. This cartridge is included in the Design Space subscription.
I needed to put something on the outside.
I used a Crayola thin marker as well as my scoring tool on this card.

Welcome! Tags - everybody needs them... Here are a few ideas
Use a pen in your Cricut Explore. This was so quick to do!
Use pocket cards and add a few embellishments.
Chop up your holiday stacks of paper. I'm sure there are some tags hidden in your paper stacks.
