Poinsettia Gift Bag

I had some free time today to play with paper and my cricut cartridges.

I made the bag using Tags, Bags Boxes and More and my 12x24" cutting mat. I cut the bag at fit to page...

I then used the Joy of the Season cartridge to make this pink poinsettia at 4.75". I cut it in the green, bright pink and light pink. I inked the bright pink in white ink, the light pink in a darker pink and the green with tea green.

I then cut 3 white snowflakes at 3" and three pink snowflakes at 1.5'.
Covered everything with Diamond stickles and a few rhinestones and a touch of pink tulle behind the poinsettia.  Finished it off with a small tag cut from some left over paper.

I so love how this turned out - all I need now is some pink tissue paper and a gift to put on the inside.

For the last several weeks I have been playing with the Flower Shoppe cartridge trying to come up with 10 unique flowers for a class I am doing. I am so happy with the results.

I am writing up directions for each flower and will post later.

Many of you know my Sister-in-Law was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer. On Facebook someone posted a picture I knew would make a great SVG file so I whipped one up.... You can get the free file by clicking "Here". Would love to see if you make something with it.

3D Teacup - Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2

I am in love with the new Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge Cricut came out with but wasn't so excited about going out and buying a new housing for my Cricut to score. I remembered someone posting that you can 'flip' an old blade around in the existing housing and use it to do your scoring. Well, I gave it a try and loved the results....

WARNING: Practice with some old paper that is the same weight as you will be using on your project. I had my pressure up to high and my paper ripped.

In the area?? I will be doing a make-n-take this Wednesday, March 21st at Hearts-n-Crafts between 10:30 and 1pm for $5.

Special thanks to Amy from for the inspiration...
