My Submission for the Mixed Drink Swap on the Cricut Messageboard

The Cricut Messageboard is such an awesome community! There are so many talented and giving ladies and gents out there! Currently, I'm participating in some recipe swaps and the ladies that are facilitating these swaps are so amazing.

Andrea aka "Crzykittycat" is one of the Message Board goddesses who is facilitating multiple recipe swaps right now. Here's my submission for the Mixed Drink Swap - I'm not a big drinker, but I love these swaps and the beautiful 8" x 8" cookbook I'm building from all of these talented individual's recipes is absolutely breathtaking!

My First Post

Hi! I want to welcome you to my first post on my blog "Passionate About Paper". I am crazy about paper crafting and I've been so lucky to meet such wonderful ladies and gentlemen out on the Cricut Message Board that I thought I'd create a blog and get in the habit of posting my creations and sharing my heart and soul with new, and old, crafting friends!

This was a gift for my dear friend, Diana Elkins, who invited my family over for the Fourth of July. I have to give props to Dannie's Design! The tutorial for this notecard holder, and many other wonderful creations, is located here!


Don't you love Fourth of July paper?

Notecard - Open

This is such a great gift because you can customize the paper to fit whatever holiday or occasion you're making the project for!


These are the notecards that are inside the note card folder - I wanted to keep them simple; however just an FYI - embellies definitely make it hard to fit more than a few cards in the folder; however it's fun to tie up the extra cards in a coordinating bow!


Here's a picture of my family in our red, white, and blue - my dear husband of 15 years, Gerald, and our 6'1" 'gentle giant' 14 year old Zach!
