Having some fun with the new "Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.  One of the Icon on the Cartridge is this bicycle, it's so cool to have a bike that you can make anysize, any color.  Paper piece it by cutting it out again and you can change the fenders or seat a different color.  

Wait till you see what I'm doing with the pop-up card and the deer, it can be a Christmas card or a birthday card.  So easy...................

Artfully Sent one key

                              Pop up card

                             This was really on black paper and looks much better in person.  
Playing with our NEW Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge
                                        When I had Cricut club this month, I told them no homework and we made cards using Artfully Sent and just one key.  I have more to show just using one key.  So keep checking in or better yet follow my blog and you will get an email when I post and you won't miss a thing.

Here is another version of the same card, on this one we used the block of words and trimmed the edges with black shimmer trim.  

 The inside was cut out of orange paper mounted on a black base, which is a key on the cartridge, so you don't even have to figure out the base size.
                                     We were cutting the spider out of black sparkle paper.  Nice accent!

September Blog hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars blog hop.  This month is when we start to see all the pumpkins and the change  of weather. I hope you enjoy hopping from one site to the other and see what we have to share.  So if your starting here just keep clicking on the link to get to the next blog and you will wind up back here when you saw all the wonderful creations.  

The  pumpkin above, I made about 2 years ago with the Cricut Artiste CTMH Cartridge.  I
cut it out and ran it through the Cuddlebug to give it that swirly texture.  I was made to hold chap stick or any other goodies.  This one is about 2 1/2 inches tall and the neat part about the Cricut is that you can make it any size you want.


Here is the sidestep card that we made at the Westminster Expo, what an Extra special weekend!
I promised I would give the directions. This card was made with a new paper pack called "Confetti Wishes" The ballons, scalloped circles and banner were all cut with the Cricut. The balloon were stamped with the stamp set that came with the Cricut cartridge, also the happy birthday was in the Cricut bundle.   I will be showing a Christmas version of this card on Sat, Sept 13 at our Annual Christmas Card Extravaganza  9:30-3:30. Seats still available. Call me to reserve your seat.  610 367-0188
