Jinger here. I just realized that Father’s Day is right around the corner, and I should really start thinking about what I should do for my Dad. Of course I will probably give him a new tie, or power tool, and take him to his favorite restaurant, but I always try and make him a handmade card, a little something that comes straight from my heart.
Using your Cricut and Gypsy to make cards for special occasions has never been easier, and with over 250 Cartridges, finding just the right image or sentiment for my card is a snap. I hope this Father’s Day card project will help inspire you.
Recipe books make for great gift ideas. And remember, you don’t have to stop at recipe books. You can create any kind of book you would like to such as; baby brag books, graduation books, wedding guest books, wedding picture books, vacation books, birthday books, scrapbook albums, holiday books, book reports and so much more.
