Do you have Pizzazz?

Operation Write Home is having a Pizzazz Blog Skip. They have several examples of what you can add to your cards to make them a little more special without adding glitter or lots of thickness. Be sure to check it out.

This week has the digital cartridge Life's a Party available for free in the Cricut Craft Room.

I found this cute lion. (You will notice I made him with beady eyes.) I embossed him with two different patterns to add some pizzazz of my own. I also inked the edges and popped up his head with foam tape for some depth.  May Arts ribbon always adds pizzazz, right?

What kind of Pizzazz do you like to add to your projects?


  1. I own this cartridge. Love the lion, monkey, and vulture cuts on it! You card is very cute!

  2. What an adorable lion! I loved the embossing you did for him and the brown complements the yellow so well! Good pizzazz!

  3. the texturing on your lion brings him to life. Great card - guaranteed to bring smiles to many people - thanks for Pizzazing.
