The second project is an easy bookmark cut from the Animal Kingdom cartridge. This was my first wireless test cut using my Cricut Expression 2 machine and the Cricut Craftroom. I embellished the bookmark with brads from All My Memories. I add some coordinating buttons from Dress It Up. My name is formed from stickers from Colorbok. I colored my cardstock moose with my brown Copic marker. I think I'll make a few more of these for friends and relatives!

I got a great deal on a slightly used Yudu CardShop and got some time to practice with it today. I used the included screened images with black ink on white cardstock to create both the birdcages and the sentiments. I then layered the designs with white on black cardstock. I used my Martha Stewart punches to create the borders and added some diamond and silver brads from Recollections. The black and the silver ribbons are from the Ribbon Boutique. The cards are put together with a combination of glue sticks and Glue Dots. I can't wait to purchase some blank screens so that I can start screen printing my own designs on cards. I'm not that great with ink and stamping so I think this little gadget has so much potential! Thanks for looking!
Here is a thank you card made for my sister who gave me a really special birthday gift. I used my Country Life Cricut Cartridge for the die-cuts and my Best Friends Imagine Cartridge for the paper designs. I used Bazzill Basics Paper Premium Textured Cardstock for the card. I then adhered a square of Cloud 9 Design Specialty Double-Sided Cardstock for the flowered background. I then used a light blue precut photo mat by Heidi Grace. I adhered my die-cuts to the mat using foam adhesive squares. I shaded my quilt just a tad using my Copic Cadmium Yellow marker. I then embellished the die-cuts with silver glitter glue, for the needle, and my white Gelly Roll pen for the stitching. I cut my tag from the same Bazzill cardstock and border punched it with my Fiskars punch. I printed the wording off on plain, white paper and then used some Pebbles chalk to add some color. I used a regular ball point pen to create stitches around the tag and quilt. I topped this card off with a few buttons from my sewing stash, which are adhered with Glue Dots. I then added a bow made from ribbon from the Ribbon Boutique. I hope my sister likes her card as much as I liked my present!! Thanks for looking!

I used one piece of red 12X24 cardstock from The Paper Studio cut at 22.75 X 11.58 (these sizes were created on my Gypsy). I then traced around the outside of the bag to put my snowflake pattern paper, from Recollections, in place. This also gave the bag a little more stability. Everything was put together using an Elmer's gluestick and Glue Dots to reinforce the bag seams. I embellished the outside by cutting a doily from the Cindyloo cartridge at 4.5 inches using white cardstock. I sprayed the white cardstock with sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz. I then cut a snowflake and background from the Winter Lace cartridge at 3.5 inches each. I added some sequins from Recollections and some bead trim and a bow. The bead trim was from RibbonFx and the ribbon from the Ribbon Boutique.
As I've already mentioned, the card comes from Studio G. I adhered my snowflake patterned paper with a gluestick and then spritzed the exposed white area with sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz. I used Cindyloo again to cut a doily at 2.8 inches. Winter Lace provided me with the snowflake and background, cut at 1.8 and 2.1 inches respectively. I then added the same theme with the bead trim, ribbon, and sequins, using Glue Dots to hold everything together.
I know it's a little early for the holidays, but this crafting activity has me thinking of cooler weather as we hit 90+ temperatures and elevated humidity today!!
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!!
