Use up your paper...quickly and easily!

I admit it, I love paper.  I like sparkly paper and pretty paper, but especially paper with flowers on them.  Last week I "had" to make  notes for the kids to write Thank You's for their Christmas gifts.  And I have SOOOOO much paper in my house.  Ack!  I decided to use up my leftover paper and made some SUPER easy cards.  

This is the first one:

Just cut a square and added a CTMH sentiment with a Cricut shape.

Wings Paper Pack (retired)

Olivia Paper Pack (retired)

I made about 20 cards in a very short period of time! whoopeee!
One of my friends writes a LOT of Thank You notes.  (I've actually had to tell him to stop writing us Thank-You's.)  I gave him 10 of the not-too-girly ones.  BONUS, I now have a stash of note cards.  Yay!

Supplies Used:
Paper Packs:  Olivia, Wings (and a flowery non-ctmh paper (gasp!))
Stamp Set:  Thank You (D1361, $17.95) - a must if you write a lot of Thank You's!
Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge (Z1686, $99) (includes 700 Cricut images, 3 stamp sets, and 3 die cut chipboard sheets)
Coordinating Card Stock and Inks:  Smoothie, Sweet Leaf, Juniper (Paper); Vineyard Berry & Twilight (Ink)

I hope you're inspired to use up some of your stash!
