A few projects.

Hey bloggers!! First up is a set of notecards I made for one of my nieces teacher for teacher appreciation week. I used create a critter cartridge, the stamp and paper are from papertrey ink, the flower and ribbon are both some that I just had in my stash.

I made a set of 5 with envelopes to match. These cards measure 3 x 3 inches. The green layer is 2 3/4 x 2 3/4. I think the bird was cut at 2 3/4 inches also.

This is the first card I made with my new cricut. This little guy is from the just a note cartridge that comes preloaded on the cricut. The background stamp is from Emma from My Creative Times stamp set Fun Borders, which you can order by going HERE. I did the background by stamping it 4 times with versamark ink then used clear embossing powder.

Once again all paper is from papertrey ink, the twine is from the twinery and the button is one I had in my stash. This card is a standard A2 size card so it measures 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 inches. The blue layer is cut at 5 1/4 X 4 inches. The little bear I think it is was cut at 3 3/4 inches. I hope everyone enjoyed the two cards today.

It's HERE!!!!!

Thats right the new Cricut Expression 2 Anniversary Edition is here. I was very surprised when I checked the order status of it yesterday morning before work and it said it was out of delivery. When I first ordered it, it said it wouldn't be here till the 5th. My thoughts on the machine is it is very easy to use, but will take some getting use to, but I love it. I'm so glad I bought it.

I will be posting pictures of a few projects I have been working on and just haven't had the time to post in a few minutes. I will also be posting my first project I made with my new cricut. I hope everyone has a good day and a great weekend.

Cricut Expression 2

Hello bloggers!! So how many of you bought the new cricut expression 2 last night/today? I did and I'm so excited I cant wait to get mine in the mail. I didn't pay the extra shipping to get it here quicker I can wait, at least I think I can. I am going to be finishing up a few projects today and hopefully having something to show you later tonight. It has been very nasty here where I live lots of rain and storms, and lot of flooding going on, and it sounds like the rain isn't going to stop for a while. I hope everyone has a good day, and if you haven't already bought the new cricut I have a feeling HSN will be sold out of them after this next airing so you better go and get one.

Happy Crafting.

Birthday Card

Hello bloggers!! I hope everyone is having a good day. Today I want to share with you a birthday card I made for my nephew, who has a birthday tomorrow. He likes to play video games, so I decided to take one of his favorite games and turn it into a card.

The card measures 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches. The white mat is 4 x 4 inches. I used my computer to add the words before I cut it and printed the picture off the internet and added it to the front.

I hope everyone enjoys this cute and simple card.

Ashely :)
