It’s day 12 of the 40 FREE Holiday Card cuts in the Cricut Craft Room.  Make sure you have downloaded the program to your computer to take advantage of these FREE cuts.  The Cricut Craft Room download can be found on Cricut.com and can be used with any Cricut machine.  This card was similar to the Let it Snow card I posted yesterday.  I jazzed it up a little with a snowflake from Stampin Up and a few pearls.

I added a couple of shiny snowflakes I purchase on a garland at an after Christmas sale.  You need to think outside the box when you are choosing items to put on your cards or scrapbook pages.  I hope  you are enjoying these cards.

If you haven’t been in the Cricut Craft Room yet, now is the time to visit it.  I missed the first 9 days of the FREE Holiday card cuts, but I will be visiting it every day until Christmas.  There will be 29 more cards.  Each card is only posted for one day.   This cut was from day 10.

This was the card from today.  I must confess, I had trouble with getting all the little pieces out of the card.  My card was 4″ x 5″.  I used Stampin’ Up paper and it is a nice weigh, but sometimes I have trouble when there are a great deal of small cuts. I think I would have liked it better if I would have used red paper  behind the white.

This card is also in the Craft Room today.  I am sure you can purchase these cuts at Cricut.com if you miss the FREE cuts.  Happy Cutting!

 

 

Farmer’s Wife Blocks – Week 9 – Blocks # 17 and # 18

Farmer’s Wife Quilt – Century of Progress

I love this block, but it was not sure if it should have had the three green pieces alike on the bottom of the block.  That is the way it is printed in the book.  I think I would have like it better if I would have made it a mirror image of the top half of the block.  I did not take any pictures when I made this block, so I am showing you the back of the block in hope it will help you in construction.  I paper-pieced this block. Look at my previous posts on Farmer’s Wife Quilt to get the Yahoo Group where these pattern can be downloaded for FREE.

Once again, you can see that I use colored pencils so that I know where to place the fabric.

I love the secondary pattern of the star that I found in the middle of this block.  I again didn’t take pictures while I put this block together, so here is a picture of the back of the block.

I think I quoted the wrong number of blocks left in my last post.  I have completed 18 blocks and there are 111, so that means I have 93 left.  I hope you are enjoying my journey…Happy Quilting!
