Some things I've been working on...

Loving my new cartridge, Florals Embellished.

If you noticed I used pearls and my Irock so I didn't have to use some of the small cuts.

Thanks for stopping by.

Another new cartridge....

---another favorite--maybe---Florals Embellished Cartridge.

Here's a card I made for a church friends. She is a widow and live by herself and fell down her attic stairs last weekend. I haven't seen her, but my hubby, Terry, says she looks like she's been beat-up. So I thought I would send her this card from my new cartidge. I love the way it came out. I used mostly cardstock from Walmart and an old stack from Me & My Big Ideas. Lots of layering and pieces, but I think it was worth it. I used Martha Stewarts small pearls for the birds eye and for the center of the flowers. Then I added a yellow bow. The phrase came from Beyond Birthdays.

I think I love this cartridge

Oh my gosh, another favorite...

how many times have I said that! LOL!!!

The new Cricut projects cartridges are like the solutions cartridges. They don't have a full selection of 'function' (layering and such) buttons, infact, this one doesn't have any.

Ta-da! It's the Flower Shoppe!

And here is the sample one I did (I either use my gypsy or plain paper for my first use) and I love, love, love this flower (I love flowers--just don't like the price of the store bought ones!)

This was cut on cardstock at 1 1/2" (I think) but the first cut--spiral--needs a really sticky mat at that size.

I'm going to go cut some in colors--and I'll post those later...
