Cricut Artfully Sent Four-leaf clover card

Cricut Artfully Sent Four-leaf clover card

Hello, friends!

Before I tell you all about today's project, I wanted to make a few announcements. First, starting next week, I will start posting crafty how to videos. Yes, after many many emails requesting that I make videos and much thought I have decided to take the plunge. 

There will be at least one video per week. Well, unless something crazy happens. Remember I am a cancer patient. I have been good to get content up so far, but you never know. 

I have the first several videos planned out, but wanted to know what kind of things you all wanted to see. Please include in today's comments what videos you would like me to make. These videos will be technique based, so you all can learn how to craft like a boss! Seriously, it is going to be great! I am even doing a bow tying video. 

Second, I have made a survey that I would love for you guys to take. Taking this survey will help me improve this blog for all of you. If you take the survey, I will give away a box full of handpicked goodies. Let me know in the comments that you took the survey.

Here is another survey from Close To My Heart about future Cricut cartridges. Please take it! You can help sculpt future releases PLUS there is a drawing for an amazing prize!

Today, I have another St. Patrick's day card. It, like yesterday's card, is made using the Artfully Sent cartridge. Who knew it would have so many great things for St. Patty's Day?

To get the focal point, I used the 'slice' feature. That way I could easily back the four-leaf clovers. 

If you have a Cricut Explore, here is the file: Cricut Artfully Sent Four-leaf clover card

I took the survey. I loved your shamrock card. Thanks so much for a chance to win.

Windy said...

I took your survey and the CTMH survey via an email. I think it's great you're going to do videos, and I think we'll all understand if you're unable to do it some of the time. One of the subjects I'm interested in seeing is the "slice" method you mentioned in today's blog.

Took the survey! Looking forward to your videos. Don't overdo it though ... You need to take care of yourself!

Took both surveys. Thanks for all you do. Like the St. Pat Day card. Not sure I know what 'slice' feature is? Would you please explain the slice feature?

Deedles said...

Love this St. Pats Day card, and oh I completed the survey!

Linda C said...

Survey completed! Looking forward to hearing more about possible changes to your blog. Hope you're doing good :)

Sue N. said...

Took the survey!! Regarding the last question, is there away for you to track orders directly from a post? I love how freely you share - that would be another thing I like most about your website!!! How are you feeling?

Sue N. said...

Me again. I took the ctmh survey after commenting earlier - I like having a physical cartridge because I have the expression, too. Maybe ctmh would consider every 3 months one size d or maybe the next size down stamp set with a limited number of cuts through design space and your website for the stamps. Sort of how (SU - I know bad word here) offers one stamp set and one set of matching framelits. ctmh can offer the stamp set and the code to design space. No where to leave this feedback on their survey....my 2 cents.

LST in Colorado said...

Melanie, took both surveys, and looking forward to all you and CTMH have to offer. Can't wait to see what you have for your first video in April. Take care, it looks like crafting has helped you through this health journey, but don't over do it.

Lee Hodgins said...

Hello, again. I just completed the Close to My Heart survey and appreciate the opportunity to provide input on that front as well. Now, I'd better get finishing up those St. Patrick's Day cards!

Lee Hodgins said...

So excited for you as you take this next step. Please take care of yourself as you plan this new adventure. Your card is pretty (they ALL are, Melanie). Completed the survey this morning and appreciate the opportunity to provide input that way.

flscraplady said...

The videos sound great. I did take your survey.

Eva H. said...

Hi Melanie! Happy to see you're doing well! Keep focusing on your health. I did complete the surveys for you.

CA Scrapper said...

I love that card, so pretty! I took your survey and the CTMH survey. Can't wait to see the videos you do.

CathyinMN said...

Cute card! I took the blog survey. I didn't put video day at the top (but within top 5), but I think the video could encompass any of the other choices, especially top choices and tip and tricks (if the tips and tricks would be easier to understand if they were shown in a video). Take care of yourself and have a great weekend!

Debbie Fleenor said...

I took both surveys. Question #6 on your survey isn't working. If you try to choose a number it numbered all of the options numerically.
You are very ambitious! I hope it goes well. I'll be watching.

BethAnn M said...

I have taken both of the surveys, and thank you for asking for our input! Please take care of yourself, and keep your health first. We will all be here whenever you are ready to show us a new trick. I would love to understand that "slice" feature! Thank you.

Auntie Em said...

Hi! Checked out and answered your blog surveys. Hope it helps.

Great St Pats card! I like the rows of shamrocks backed with the soft green. I like the polka dot inside and the pretty banner on the front.
Thanks for sharing! :)
