Rainbow card

Here's a card I made using the Once Upon A Princess cartridge for my Cricut machine. I was inspired to make the card by a challenge on the Bitten by the Bug 2 blog. I coloured the rainbow with Copic markers then covered with glitter. I used puff paint on the clouds. I think I will send it to my God-daughter for her birthday.

Mrs Hibbins room!

I've been busy having to do reports for school. This is a job I really hate and get fed up so quickly doing it. So to break it up a bit, every so often I surf the internet looking for creative ideas. Also when I have finished a set I reward myself with some crafting time, playing in my craft room with my new toy - a Cricut Expression machine.

Earlier today I found My Creative Time and saw there was a challenge to make a 3D/altered item using the Cricut cartridge 'Paper Doll Dress Up'. This was a cartridge that I have just bought so decided to have a go at the challenge. I have been meaning to make a sign for my classroom door for some time and this was the incentive. I learnt to do the Joseph's Coat stamping technique at a recent Stampers 10 meeting and used some paper I had made for my dress (it's actually the native Indian girl's dress with the sleeves partly cut off). I stuck it all on a CD. I'm sure my class will love it and I can't wait to show them tomorrow!

Dad mini album

When I got my new software - Sure Cuts A Lot - to use with my Cricut, I designed and made a DAD word album. However when it was cut out I didn't particularly like it so I made another one with DAD down the side (this is the one I have done for my dad for Father's Day).

The other day I had a mini album class at my house and as only 2 people were able to come I was able to do some crafting myself. I saw the unfinished DAD album and decided to cover it with paper etc. as something to do. I had great fun making it and using a few of my Cricut cartridges (Paper Dolls Dress Up, Plantin Schoolbook, Paisley). I might save it and give it to my dad next year or I might sell it!

Mermaid birthday card

I have recently bought a Cricut Expression and have had great fun playing with it! This card was made using the Life is a Beach cartridge. I also used my Cuttlebug and the Fiskars ocean embossing plate for the waves. It's my mum's birthday on Monday so I'll probably give it to her!
