Roxie Card

I made this card using the Cricut again.  Just love that little bug!  I used some Roxie Paper and a little bling.  I also used the new stamp set Instant Memories and The double stamp set that is coming up in September for National Stamping Month!

Cricut Cards

My goodies from Convention arrived on Saturday and I had fun creating these 2 cards,  I just love the new Cricut cartridge.  These cards just might be at my upcoming workshop!  Hope you can join me!

On these cards I also used the Roxy Paper Pack and the Bling Assortment!  Just love the little bling!

Creations from Convention

I have finally got around to taking pictures of the layout I did at Convention.  I love how it turned out.  I decided to use some black and white photos of my son.  Even though its pink paper, it can still be boyish!

Here is a close up of the 10-things pocket available in the New Idea Book.  They are only 3.95 what a great deal!

Calling all those who are CRAZY FOR CRICUT!!!
Close to My Heart has taken it to a whole new level! We are the first to come out with a Cricut Cartridge that pairs with clear acrylic stamps and dimensional chipboard. Simply plug the cartridge into your Cricut®* Personal Electronic Cutter machine and you’re ready to cut any of the 700 shapes, ranging from elegant rosettes and lace to trendy gift boxes and banners! You’ll also receive three stamp sets as well as three sets of 9" × 12" Dimensional Elements that work in tandem with the cartridge. On top of that, numerous My Acrylix stamp sets in our new Idea Book pair wonderfully with images on the Cricut® cartridge. They made it SOOO easy…if you look closely at the sets you’ll see that they’ve put lines around the images that coordinate and marked the size setting right on the acetate sheet.
Check out this video from Close to My Heart to see what it’s all about:
