On The Desk – Birthday in the House

Happy Wednesday! Yesterday it was Stu’s birthday, and so, I have of course done some crafting this week!

I thought I’d have a play around on the Cricut Maker, as it’s been a while. One thing I really like on the Cricut that doesn’t come up very often is the HUGE amount of fonts available, for printing, cutting and of course writing (and seriously this is SO useful when your penmanship is as bad as mine!)

I found this cute card design (available for free with Cricut Access) on the Cricut Design Space, and customised it a little, before setting the wonderful machine to do all the hard work for me, before I cropped it, added some accent in sparkly glitter and finally mounted it onto a pre-prepared card blank.

I really love how easy the Cricut Maker makes card-making, although, I still really enjoy playing around with paper and cardstock, and using my own elements. This is one of those cards I had to make once I’d seen it though, and I think it turned out really nice!

I also did a bit of baking this week, and instead of making a WHOLE cake this year, which I’ve done for the last couple of years, I instead made some cupcakes, which was fun! In all honesty we’re still not over all the Christmas chocolate, so it was nice to make something that wouldn’t be around for a week.

Do you give anything handmade for birthdays?
