I LOVE MY CRICUT!

I have been participating in an online challenge hosted by Club Scrap called the PSL or Pro Scrapbookers League™ Camp Yah- Hey-n-So.  This has been such an inspiration to me to complete some cards and to USE MY CRICUT EXPRESSION!  I have watched some fantastic tutorials by My Pink Stamper and Obsessed with Scrapbooking.  These ladies have done a terrific job with their instructional videos!  These are my cards from the last week of PSL Camp….

This card was made with multiple papers from Club Scrap cardstock. Their cardstock is fantastic! Most of the sheets are 80 lb cover weight and cut beautifully with the Cricut.  I used the Just Because Cricut cart and used the Fit to Page (12*12 CS)  feature on the card and applied that measurement to all the die cuts.  I ended up with a pretty large card and used The Enveloper by the Crafter’s Companion to make the envelope, also out of CS card stock.  Easy and the envelope (1/2 US letter paper size)  was perfect! Of course you can make the card smaller with your Cricut.

I used the Sentimentals cart and Club Scrap cardstock for this one.  Club Scrap has small packages of coordinating paper called POPS (Pound of Paper) that you can add to your monthly kit.  The sizes range from 3*5 to 5*7, perfect for backing photos, journaling, and using with the Cricut;)!  I cut the telephone on a 5*7 piece of cardstock and used the FTP feature.  It cut at 4 1/2”. I “tangled” on it with a gold gel pen.  This fit perfectly on a 6*6 card.  I cut the phrase at 2”.  I used one of the Martha Stewart punches for the border.

I love this one! I made it for my sister’s birthday!  I used two cartridges for this one, Forever Young and Storybook.  I had a 5*7 card from one of Club Scrap’s Greetings to Go kits  and had to test my cuts  a few times before I got the size I wanted. Using the Storybook cart I cut the phrase at 4 1/2” and  the frame I used the FTP feature on a 5*7 POP.  I cut the model at 4 1/2” using the Forever Young cart. I embossed the hot pants using my Cuttlebug and rubbed with Club Scrap’s onyx ink pad.  I embellished with gems.  I hadn’t tried the pop dots and bought them on a whim while shopping.  They worked perfect for adhering these gem embellishments!  I’ve tried many different kinds of glue and decided to try Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive after watching Joy on Obsessed with Scrapbooking.  Love this for layering these Cricut die cuts.
