I have been using my time watching videos and how others use techniques and helpful hints in card making and watching others use their talents with others to make a card their own!!!! You Tube is fantastic for that and I found a channel that has videos that are called "Scraplift Friday" cards by 47CMC. This card was done from her scrap lift that she took from a Christmas Trend Magazine some time ago.
I used K &Company "Yuletide" paper and various embellishments from may stash!!! I was able to make duplicate labels in just the right size with my cricut as I don't have alot of free standing dies for my Cuddlebug or punches. I have to say the Cricut is a space saver that way!!!
