More Paper Crafting

First I need to wish my oldest son D a Happy Birthday. We tried to celebrate yesterday but things didn't work so we will try today. LOL
I made him a card using the Wild Card Cricut cart. It is fun but I am glad I have the Design Studio to deal with figuring out the sizes to cut. It's not so hard once you figure out how big of an envelope can fit on the paper to then cut all the other parts. I thought this card and envie was a good choice for my son as he is a little but "kooky" LOL

Supplies cardstock, pp from that ever present Costco stack, glitter glue and a stamp from a set I bought from Costco as well. Inks from Stampin Up spots
This is a prototype of an invitation to a neighborhood recipe exchange I am planning for Dec. Cuttlebug Challenge is having a birthday celebration and having a month-long series of challenges around parties. I thought it would be a good time to do some preparation for my future get together. This will be the invitation and the theme will be carried out through the weeks.
I got the chance to use my brand spankin' new Kitchen Cricut cart but miss using the Design Studio to figure out how many I can fit on the page and tweak the designs a bit. I worked from my stash and I found I need brown cardstock LOL I would like to make the gingerbread boy cookie not so dark. LOL
I did use my Cuddlebug on the Mmmmm part (from the Graphically Speaking cart), and I found that it works quite well after it goes through the Xyron still on the Xyron paper backing. That is good to know. The folder I used was an old favorite Swiss Dots.
I need to make my plans for making about 15 or so more LOL
