I am a digi girl through and through and am not thinking about switching to paper, but there is a new store in town with a tiny little scrapbooking section and I decided to check it out the other day. They have some really beautiful stuff. It looks like they have great stuff for making cards so I was thinking of trying to make a couple. But I was wondering if it is worth it to try without a circuit. Can I make nice cards with just a pair of scissors? lol
If so, does anyone have any examples of cards I can make without a circuit? I would love to see them and see if I can lift some ideas. The first one I would like to try is for my MIL birthday mid April. Any advice would be great. Thanks!
Yes! It is possible. I don't have a cricut so all of my stuff is obviously made without it. I use stickers, rub-ons, ribbon and stamps though.
Here are a some that I have in photobucket right now.
These were all made with recycled cards. Then I just added a few other things to make them complete.
I don't have a cricut either though I've only ever made 2 different cards before its very doable.

Oh yeah, a lot of the paper girls on here make fantastic cards without a Cricut. Infact, most of mine you could do without a Cricut...you'd just substitute a stamp or some embellishment where the cut is. That would be great if you started making cards. I could also send you any Cricut cuts you'd want!
