New Cartridge From Cricut

One of the great things with having the Cricut Explore is having a subscription to Design Space.  I like getting to try out the new cartridges that are included. The license ones are not included, but everything else is and that includes the new Simple Pop Up Cards cartridge.  I first tried the Make It Now Happy Birthday Pop Up card.  This was really simple and makes a cute card to have on hand.  I do plan on adding something to the front of the card, but time got in the way.  I can see so many possibilities to these pop up cards.  The second one was the Thanks card.  Another easy one and with so many possibilities on colors and what you can add to the front of the card.  The envelopes are included making this a complete project.  Check out this fun cartridge today!  I will see you again next week for some more projects!

Layout Tuesday with Cricut Explore

Hello and welcome. Layout Tuesday was created with the Cricut Explore and Print and cut Snow White and Prince from Happily Ever After. The title was cut with a svg file from PPBN Designs. I also used the Lattice Border from Ribbon and Rosettes cartridge.  These pictures were from Disney on Ice that I am finishing for my oldest granddaughter.  We had a short trip last weekend to Chicago and got a few pictures.  It rained and hubby didn't like it there so we left.  Next trip is in the planning stages now!  See you later this week!

Fun with Vinyl

Happy Thursday! I really enjoyed this week and now my husband thinks I might vinyl everything! lol  I did two of my toilets and my washer and dryer.  These were done with the Silhouette Cameo and files from the Silhouette Store. 
This first one is monogram K and is file #59334 from Lori Whitlock.  I love this one and used it before.
This design is one of three in the set from Kolette Hall and is file#69253.  It is a nice design that would be great on mailboxes too!
Now this on my washer and dryer are not purchased, but I loved the saying so "borrowed" it and used fonts on my computer to make it.  Love how vinyl can personalize your home too!  Thanks for sharing today with me and now I am heading on another little trip this weekend, unknown location right now, so see you next week.  Special shout out to my grandson Cameron, Happy 17th Birthday!!!

A Little Thursday Fun!

Happy Thursday! Today I am sharing a layout with you from my recent trip. We visited St. Louis and the City Garden in downtown is so beautiful. I used my Cricut Explore and the Bloom cartridge.  I loved the flowers on this cartridge.  I did use the Silhouette to cut the title with the Bolton font.  I just wanted to show some of the beautiful statues and flowers. 
I was asked by a few to show my little sports car that my husband got me.  I love it and have the top down as much as possible.  This was taken when I picked it up.  Been driving so much that I haven't take anymore yet!  Now you see why my crafting time will be limited for summer!!!!
