Whether you’re new to Cricut and just discovering us or you’re already a member of our community, we’d like to welcome you with a little kind note:

YOU ARE LOVED greeting card from Cricut

Sometimes, a simple reminder like this is all it takes to make someone’s day.

While many of you know us for our unique crafting products, so much of our inspiration comes from you—including all the ways you encourage kindness through the projects you make.

And Megan who created custom cards for residents at a senior living facility when they couldn’t see family or friends due to COVID-19 lockdowns.

It’s not just the receiver who feels that warmth. The act of doing something for others can bring you happiness too.  

There are infinite ways to be kind. Why not start with something simple, like giving a card.

The benefits of being kind 

Science backs up the benefits of doing something kind for someone else.

The kinder you act toward others, the better you will feel.

Imagine how even the smallest act of kindness can create a domino effect.

We spend so much time texting and tweeting that sometimes we forget what it’s like to tell someone how we feel through a physical act.

Cardmaking is more than a simple craft, it’s a way to show someone you care.
