HAPPY 2011!!!
I was very spoilt over Christmas, and was given one of these beauties as a gift!!!! I was beyond excited!!!

I recieved it before Christmas, but with the hussle and bustle that is Christmas, I decided I would take it out to play once things had returned to normal .... that happened to be this week:-)
I have decided that the possibilities are absolutely endless. I only have a couple of cartridges at the moment, but I'm amazed at just how much you can create with just a little. I have made some snowscape notecard sets - I thought they'd make nice last minute gifts once they were popped in a cellophane bag and tied with some gorgeous ribbon, and a matching tag.


I put a thin layer of transparent glitter glue over the snowy areas on this set. I cut the snowflakes with a small hand held paper punch I have. To add some sparkle, I glued a tiny rhinestone to the center of each snowflake.


This set just says "FUN" to me:-) All those happy little creatures frolicking in the snow .... it makes me smile!!!

I think I may settle down now with a nice mug of coffee, and make a set of garden gnome notelets .... watch this space!!!

PS - The dishwasher and washing machine are going - hmmm, the grind of daily chores:-)


  1. I have a cricut expression and I love it. I just got a new cartridge this week in the mail. I have been able to do so many neat things with the cricut! You will love it more and more all the time friend!

  2. Those are very cute cards! I don't have that cartridge, but I do have another one that is for Christmas Cards.

  3. Okay, sorry about the Michele and Todd above, that is Michele from Something Special. I was signed into my family blog instead. Just wanted to let you know it was from me at Something Special

  4. Happy New Year Kerry! This post makes me want one of the Cricut even more! What cute cards! The gray background is the perfect choice. Too cute! I'm thinking now my adorable card from you with the little gnome was made with this spectacular new gift! I just love it! Thank you so much! Elizabeth

  5. oh that is so neat! I don't do paper arts but love what you can do with it nowadays...all the neat gadgets.....
