Well, it has been a year since my very first post and what a year it has been.

Three Cs blog is close to 2,000 views which makes me very happy and I am grateful that you take the time to come and read what I post. Thank you.

I have many projects in the works and I am hoping, in the upcoming year, to post on a more consistent basis.

My first post in my second year of blogging comes to you courtesy of my sister. She requested a gift card to one of her favorite clothing shops for her birthday. No problem, consider the gift card purchased. However, as all crafters know, you can't just give someone a gift card, it has to come in a nice package.

I have been waiting a long time for the "Forever Young" Cricut cartridge to go on sale. No luck. It was holding strong at its current price. The "Forever Young" cartridge includes a large selection of fashion related images and would be perfect for a clothing gift card holder. Hmmm, continue to wait for the cartridge to go on sale or buy it for the sake of my sister's present? Pack your bags cartridge, your coming home with me.

One of the best things about using the Cricut is that I get to use up many of the scrap pieces of paper I have been collecting from other paper projects. It's surprising how little paper the Cricut uses and the stunning projects it creates.


The gift card would be placed in the slot between the shoes.

Thanks for stopping by and until next time, happy paper crafting.
