In efforts to jump-start my holiday card-making and celebrate "Christmas in July", I participated in a swap hosted by the fabulous Dusti of Scrappin With Cricut. Here are two of the three cards I make using the Cricut Lite cartridge Jolly Hollys. When it was released just before Christmas, this cartridge was impossible to find. Fortunately, Cricut released it on their website just in time for "Christmas in July" projects. The paper is leftover from last year, but I if you like it, so retailers may still have some on clearance.

As you may know, I bought both the Pooh and Friends cartridge, as well as the Mickey and Friends cartridge. Here's my first layout--a super simple Mickey. He's cut at 8" and the grass at 1.75". The fence appears on the My World cartridge, as well as the Potpourri cartridge (thank you Mycutsearch.com!) and is cut at 3.5".

We're running out the door to my auntie's for a bbq, but I wanted to post the banner I made for her. I used the Stand and Salute and Cricut Essentials cartridges, K&Co Marines paper pack, Bazzil cardstock, My Pink Stamper and Scrappy Mom stamps (set names to be added later) and twine from Papertrey Ink.
