    Default Mother's Day cards (and a cricut whine)

    I made cards for my mom and DH's mom. Bought glitter glue yesterday at Jo-Anns (they didn't have the official Stickles) and had fun using it today.

    I think I like the lower placement of "mom" better, might have to move it on the first one.

    the inside - had to use cardboard to cut the frame (as explained below). the glitter glue is still drying on this, it looks really nice in person.

    And bookmarks for the grandmas, idea thieved from Angie The butterflies are cut from a pretty patterned paper, just got drowned out by the flash here. Printed the photo on cardstock.

    Okay, and now my whine - I need a new blade! I had a lot of paper tearing the last few times I've used my Cricut. But tonight is definitely evidence of needing a new blade. I ended up using cardboard and my deep housing cutter blade to cut the frame after my green paper was destroyed below. I've read that it's not good to use the deep housing cutter on regular paper, haven't tried it yet. I'm hoping to have time to pick up new blades tomorrow, wonder if Jo-Ann's will let me use a coupon for them.

    Here's what the old blades did.

    Now I'm off to bed, I'm so tired! Had to stay up to finish my alphas challenge layout (which is posted in that thread ... actually, adding it here too!)

    Card is beautiful, bookmarks are great, and LO is so cute. Great job! Bummer about your blade, hoping you can get a new one.

    Nice cards! You all are making me want some stickles or glitter glue! I wonder if I need to replace my blade. I don't think I ever have! My paper rips sometimes and I still don't have a handle on what I need to adjust when (pressure, speed, depth). I use mine enough (plus I've had it over a year) that I probably should change it!

    Great job on all of those! I never think of buying a glitter glue pen but that really highlights the embellishments.

    I wonder about the blade too. I haven't had mine that long, but it rips alot. I figured I am still trying to get used to the settings.

    Awesome cards! Hurray for glitter glue. I too like Mom a little lower on the card.

    Sorry about the tearing with the cricut blade. I don't know much about those.

    And as for that layout? You made me SOOOOO relieved that the Mish Tooth Fairy gave the going rate for teeth. I got between $.50 and $.75 when I was a kid, so I was worried that inflation would have it higher then $1. What a cute way to document that event. Are you going to put anything on the sides?

    Great cards! Moms will love them.

    Sorry 'bout the cricut blade. Hope you can enjoy a trip to the craft store, though!

    I love the LO, too. Very simple, but cute.
