These are 3×3 Calling Cards Used for Cricut Circle Crop Swapping.
Things to take to a Crop
I went to MY FIRST CROP EVER!! It was a Cricut Circle crop held in Atlanta. I was a total crop newbie. I didn’t know what to take, what went on…nothing. I figured it out though. 😉 Some of the things I took were: paper, adhesives, some Joy’s Life stamps, ink, scissors, a trimmer with a scoring blade, an extension cord and my Cricut Expression. I didn’t have a special scrap bag to take so DH helped me pack a rolling carry on bag and strapped my Cricut to the top. It worked great!
I also took some vinyl and transfer tape along, which turned out to be a good thing because I was asked to do a vinyl/Cricut Vinylology demo. It was soooo cool because the other demos were done by none other than Shannon from Provo Craft and the awesome and talented Teresa Collins. Wow. I got to meet Teresa Collins!!! She is so nice and so pretty…just like she is on TV. There will be some Teresa Collins Cricut Imagine cartridges out soon! We got to do a make and take with some of her papers from those cartridges. AWESOME!
How to Make Cricut Calling Cards
I’d heard a lot about Calling Cards being used for crops, but I wasn’t sure what was expected. I decided to make it fast and yummy, so I used my Cricut Imagine and the Yummy Imagine cartridge to print and cut my cupcakes and their backgrounds. I used pop dots to pop the cupcakes up off of their backgrounds.
I used the Cricut Imagine Yummy cartridge along with my YUMMY PUNS stamps!!
So, the basic rule about the calling cards for the Cricut Circle crops is that the calling cards must be 3″x 3″.
You use them for entering prize drawings AND for exchanging with other people. It’s amazing the different cards that people make. Uh…don’t be like this newbie, make enough. I didn’t realize that everyone exchanged them, but they do and they expect you to have one to share. Find out how many people will be at your crop and make enough. Take an extra extension cord too. Mine came in handy for Shannon when she did a Yudu demo.
What Goes on a Cricut Calling Card
Lastly, you create the back of your card. The back is where all of your info goes. Most have some or all of the information mine has: Name, Circle #, Circle Board Name, Email and blog address. You can write other things on there too, but most people stick to the basics. I hope this helps you! Even if you’re not part of the Cricut Circle, I think the calling card idea is great for many get togethers, don’t you? I guess the old days had a pretty good idea, huh? Next, we should all get butlers so they can receive our cards for us when people come to visit. Oh YEAH!

These calling cards are awesome. And I would love to see one of your vinyl demos in person because I love your DVD.
Thanks for the opportunity to win.
