I can’t believe that it is New Years Eve and this will be my last post for 2010.  Yesterday I made a post of my favorite Cricut Card Ideas for 2010, which made me think of all of the cartridges that I have and if I had to pick just one, which one would that be.

So after looking though my library of Cricut cartridges, I Love them all, but picking just one favorite would have to be… 3 Birds on Parade.  I purchased this cartridge when it was an exclusive on HSN, but now you can buy this cartridge everywhere cricut cartridges are sold.

This Cricut Cartridge has a bird for every occasion, really fun phrases, accessories for each bird.  Look how cute they are ~ I love the football one ~ Are you ready for some football?

Then there is another cartridge that I received with my Gypsy update, and it has got to be my next favorite.  It is the Smiley Card Gypsy download cartridge.   This cartridge is not available as a cartridge it was only available as a download as a promotion.  I do hope that if you didn’t get this download because you don’t have a Gypsy or the you missed the deadline to get this cute download, that  one day real soon, Provo Craft will make this a cartridge that everyone can have.  The images on this cartridge can really make you smile that is how cute they are.

This past year has been a little crazy, with my health being not so good and just normal life situations that we encountered.  So, I can’t wait for the New Year.  2011 is going to be the best year yet.  I plan on making more cards using my Cricut Expression Machine,also my Cricut Gypsy and Cuttlebug and then sharing all of my Cricut Card Ideas with all of you.   I am looking forward to a fun, happy, healthy and creative year.

Wishing You and Your Family A Happy New Year ~ 2011

My two favorite things are decorated Christmas trees and anything Cricut.  So I had an idea.  Why not make a Cricut Tree that I can have displayed all year round.  That’s right an all year tree decorated with images that I have made using my Cricut Expression machine from various Cricut cartridges.

I found a perfect white tree (that even has little white lights) at Walmart for under $10 and that included the star that I bought for the top.  When I got it home I wanted to give it a permanent place in my studio aka Joans Craft World.  So what I did was took my white Making Memories carousel that I keep my extra Cricut blades and other supplies in and cleaned it all out.  Then with crazy glue I glued the three legs of the tree stand onto the carousel so it will not fall down.

I then put all of the supplies back in there place and since I’m not going to have the lights on, the cord fits great in the compartments that are in this carousel.  I placed my Cricut tree on top pf my 12×12 paper holder that is next to my Cricut workstation.  I decorated my tree with some Cricut images and voila the perfect Cricut Tree.  What is really cool is that since it is on the carousel, I will be able to turn it to see all of my Cricut images. I just love this cricut idea and hope that you like it too.

I just love these machines, that is my Cricut Expression and Gypsy.  If you have the smallest Cricut Card Idea, you can make it into the best card idea ever.

If you are in the “crafty world” you have seen this pear before.  But when you actually make it yourself it is sooo perfect, cute and also quick.

All I did was cut out two pears using the From My Kitchen Cricut Cartridge using the Cricut Expression machine. Then using my Gypsy and the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge I typed the words and also welded them together so that they would cut out in one piece instead of individual letters (makes it so much better when adhering to the card).

I then used some Memento Dye Ink color New Sprout and Stampin Up Dye Ink colors Glorious Green and Forest Foliage.  Using some  blenders to add some color to the edges of the pear for the soft real look.

For the background I choose paper from DCWV and also just a scrap piece of brown paper that I had left over from the shadow pieces that I used for the pear, for the bottom border of the card.

Look how great this card looks.  You will be able to send this to any perfect couple on your list for an Anniversary or just because they are a Perfect pear!

Our niece Riley’s 11th birthday is next week and again I wanted to made a cute card using my cricut.  What 11 year old girl doesn’t like cake and presents?

So I used those two things for the front of the card.  I cut out the cake  from the Designer’s Calendar Cricut cartridge and the present from the Celebrations Cricut cartridge, both using my Cricut Expression machine.

I cut the cake on plain white cardstock then colored in the image with Copic Sketch markers and then added some “bling” with stickles to the frosting of the cake and the flame of the candle.

The present I cut out on two different shades of purple but again added Stickles onto the bow to add a little sparkle to the present.

I then used my Cuttlebug and embossed a light green plaid piece of cardstock with a star embossing folder, layered that onto a solid piece of purple cardstock and finished with a polka dot bow, using American Craft ribbon.

I think this came out really cute and for the inside saying I printed on the computer:  Happy Cake and Presents Day!

Wishing Riley a Very Happy Birthday!
