    Very nice card Megan and so simple.
    I think I’m going too have to run out and get twizzer’s for those tiny pieces.
    I hope to make your live Webcast tonight to hear all the great things going on.
    I’m loving my new Cricut with your help :+) and learning lots of things.
    I’ve been trying to watch everyone of your videos each day in between grandkids, however today was my Birthday and I got behind.


  3. I remember this video cause I thought, “How is she picking up those small pieces with those nails?!” I know, I had nails for 3 years so it’s not easy! Anyway, cute card, great job, see ya tonight!

    Great card. Although it looked rather tedious with the small pieces, it made a lovely card. Thanks for sharing. I have to say that my favorites were the videos showing features of the expression such as the fit to page and mix match features. Thanks for the videos.

  10. Kathy Stutzman says:

    All the small pieces would get to me. Excited about tonight.

  11. Tina Campbell says:

  36. Very cute card. Love all the video’s that you have posted.

  37. I don’t have long nails, so tweezers are imperative for handling those tiny pieces! I wish my Zig 2-way worked so smoothly! Your video countdown inspired me to watch the whole collection of videos. Thanks so much for taking the time to make these tutorials. It’s like sitting down with a friend to make cards!

  38. This is such a sweet card!! I love Winter Frolic – I really abused it this past december!!! Hint for tiny pieces – I have the tweezers which help a lot too but I also use a small toothpick with a round ball of flexible wax on the tip. It is great for picking up the small pieces!!!

  54. Judy Spencer says:

  72. ann deery says:

    I like this one but there are too many small pieces for me. I like cards that can be done quickly but look like they took forever. It is a great card though and I love the Winter Frolic cartridge. It’s going on my wish list.
