New Stamping Cricut Cartridge!!

Hi everyone!! I just recieved my stamping cartridge in the mail today!! I can't wait to do some creative things with this cartridge!! I really think I am going to enjoy this cartridge because you can do so much more than just stamping with it!! It will be great for cards and scrapbooking pages!! Keep posted to my blog for new updates using this cartridge!! Its going to be so much fun!!

My Pooh Creation....

This is a scrapbook page I created  for my twin boy a couple of days ago. I love Winnie the Pooh, and I used the Winnie the Pooh Font Cartride by Cricut to do this entire layout. I used a baby blue, polka dotted, embossed 12x12 sheet. 
 I then cut out the Winnie the Pooh from my cartridge. I glued and put him together on a peice of brown cardstock and used design cutting scissors to give it a border around him. I then palced him in the left hand, bottom corner of the sheet. I accented his red t-shirt with some red glitter glue.
I then cut out a couple of honey pots in different sizes, and placed them in the right, bottom hand corner of the page. I had some bees that I had purchased from the craft store and placed them around the honey pots. I had to create my own honey drips, because the ones from the cartridge did not fit they way I wanted them to. So keep that in mind. I also went glitter crazy on the honey pots!!
 In the top right hand corner, I did the dame thing as I did in the bottom left corner. I cut my Pooh out, Then I cut the honey pot out, and placed them together on a plain brown cardstock paper. I then cut a border with the fancy scissors!! And of course.......I went glitter crazy!!! I also added a bee!!  :)
I then added the letters to the background page that I chose to surround the photos. These letters are cut out in a wooden theme and are so cute. Unfortunately it is very hard to see them due to bad lighting in my work room. I did not go glitter crazy here because I did not want to ruin the effects of the woodent look to the letters. I also added some cute little bumble bees!!!
That completes the Winnie the Pooh Scrapbook page!! If you have any questions, feel free to ask, or just simply leave a comment!! Someone may want to know the same question!!    :)   Toodles for now!!

A Small Thanks.....

Here is a thank you card that I made in my spare time. I used the accent essentials cartridge to complete this card. It is a fairly easy card to make, and is great for just a simple "thanks". I did not add the sizes because its really an at your discretion type of thing. It all depends on how big you want your flower. I bought the pack of green glitter butterflies at Michaels craft store and I love how it accents the card. In the center of the card is a gem, to give the flower a bit of sparkle. You can use any color you'd like, again that is at your descretion also, we all have our favorites.
The inside of the card is made of two seperate colors, and one color is cut a bit smaller than the other. You can also just leave it blank, but I think it leaves some definition to the inside of the card!!
I hope you enjoyed looking at this card, and I hope it has given you a bunch of ideas!! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!!
