Merry Christmas tree card using the Cricut Craft Room Basics cartridge.

Hello, everyone!

Today I have a project made using the FREE Cricut Craft Room Basics cartridge. It will be content that you can use for free on the Cricut Craft Room. Gotta love free!

The paper is from My Mind's Eye and the stamp is from Close To My Heart and is called Countdown.
I cut the tree out at 2 1/2", the scalloped circles at 2 1/2", the shadow at 2 1/2", and the circle out at 3".

Make sure you hop on over to my other blog because I have another project made with this cartridge! Click here ==> Courtney Lane Designs

Here are my monthly specials. I thought you guys might want to see them!

November Specials:

November stamp of the month:




Holiday Wishes stamp set that is only $5 with a $25 stamp purchase.

When you place a minimum order of $25 in My Acrylix® stamp set starting today (until November 30th), you can purchase a new D-size Holiday Wishes stamp set for only $5! That’s significant savings off the full retail value of $17.95 US / $19.95 CAN. And here’s a bonus: many of the images in the set coordinate with our Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge for added cutting and stamping fun! 

So to break it down, 
-If you spend $50 you get the November stamp of the month (retails price of $17.95) for $5.
-If you spend $25 in stamps, you get the Holidays Wishes stamp set (retail price $17.95) for $5!
-These two offers can be combined. For example, if you spend $25 in stamps and an additional $25 on anything else in the catalog you will get both stamp sets for a total of $10 ($5 per set).
You save $25.90! Which means the stamps practically pay for themselves!

*note* You MUST add discounted stamps to shopping cart when prompted by the system during checkout. Stamps cannot be added after the sale is complete and finalized. Also, adding the stamps to your cart BEFORE being prompted by this system will result in being charged full price for promotional stamps. 

 

Have a great Monday!

I'm a Cricut newbie and have been following your blog for a very short time. The stuff you create is awesome and I'm becoming more and more inspired. One question for today though....what is this FREE Cricut Craft Room cartridge you refer to for today's project? I'm not sure what that's all about. I agree w/ the others that all your extra little touches are what make your projects so fun!
