Anna Griffin Fantastic Flips Card Cricut Cartridge

I recently purchased Anna Griffin’s Fantastic Flips Card Cricut Cartridge from HSN and I am happy that I did.


I decided to do a closed window on the front on the card, but you can do an open window just like her original card kit. This is the first Anna card I have made without flowers on the front of the card.


I used a sentiment sticker and two flowers from her Fantastic Flips Card Making Kit and Dies. I prefer to use the Cricut cartridge, to cut my card, instead of the metal dies that came with her original kit. I think you get a cleaner cut and you can size your card.


Last year I made this card using her Fantastic Flips Card Making Kit and Dies.

Below is the video review of Anna Griffin’s Fantastic Flips Cardmaking Kit and Dies that I filmed last year.



Have a wonderful Monday!

Teddy Bear Parade

This adorable Teddy Bear makes a perfect Saint Patrick’s Day Card that my nephew will love.


I used the Cricut Teddy Bear (#M454F0) image from the Teddy Bear Parade Cartridge. I cut an extra black layer and shoes and glued them to the front of the card. So easy!


I love how this card turned out.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous day.

Make it in Minutes Monday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards and projects that take only minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.


I purchased the Anna Griffin’s Terrific Tags and Cutting Dies from HSN before Christmas and I love them. I made a video in December using the Christmas tags, and could not wait to make spring tags. I was thrilled that this bundle came with both Christmas tags and all occasion ones.


I added stickers from my Anna Griffin stash and was done in 5 minutes

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Monday!

Presidents Day Trip

I won't be doing Make It in Minutes Monday  because we decided it would be a good weekend to go to Yellowstone National Park.

Only a northeast corner of the park is open to car travel in winter. The rest of the park is open for snowmobiles and snow coaches. We were only there a short time, so we visited the northeast corner.


This is the Buffalo Ranch in the Lamar Valley. It started out as a real buffalo ranch with the goal of restoring bison in the park. Once the bison were re-established, it was used for public education by the advocacy group,Yellowstone Forever. You can take classes from professionals on almost any topic, including geysers, photography, wildlife and the environment.

The weather has been very warm for February and you see there is lots of snow, but it has melted down quite a bit.


We did see wolves, but they were too far away for pictures. This coyote crossed the road in front of us and posed for a few pictures before moving on.


There are many bison on the Blacktail Plateau. Most seem to have come through the winter in good condition.


Some bison on the grounds at Mammoth Hot Springs. The old building in the background is known as the Mail Carriers Cabin.


This the north entrance on the edge of Gardiner, Montana. The arch was built in 1884 and has a plaque on the other side that says "For the benefit and enjoyment of the people."

I hope you enjoyed viewing Bill's pictures. Have a great day!
