{ Hello Thursday on Tuesday! }

ProvoCraft announces new cartridges on the third Thursday of the month. This past Thursday was that day. In her usual succinct and informative manner, Diane from Capadia Designs has summarized the important information on her Blog. Go =>HERE<= to see what is coming up, what is retiring, and get links for the Girls who have already created projects using the new cartridges!

She also has included very useful information about updating your Cricut Design Studio (CDS). With new cartridges coming out every month, knowing how to "check" your version of CDS is important and might save you a step when updating.

Happy Cricut-ing!

{ Just Be You }

Sometimes I am inspired by a sentiment, sometimes by a die cut or image, and sometimes by patterned paper.

This time it was the patterned paper. Check this Moxxie 'Glamour Girl' paper out:

I have three words for you...FAB. U. LOUS!

I immediately thought of my Paisley cart, with its cute Girly images and phrases. So, here's my Card:

I cut my hair dryer shadow as large as I could to fit on a 5 X 7 Card. The shadows on this cart are enormous! I cut my hair dryer on purple shimmer paper, which, btw, cuts divinely on the Cricut.

I chose not to cut some of the layers on the hair dryer itself, but left the "cut outs" for effect. The sentiment is not from that particular cut, but I really liked the message, especially for a teen or a tween.

I added a little bling, and that is it! Cute, huh?

Thanks for stopping by!

{ Thank Ewe }

I am having a love affair.

With the animals featured on the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge.

They are the cutest things! See my darling Sheepie below:

This fun patterned paper (pp) is 'Farmyard' from October Afternoon's 'Farm Fresh' line and it was my inspiration for the card. I used Core'dinations color core cardstock for the fence, the little Sheep and the grass. Its really easy to sand for an aged look!

I used my fave Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder on my Sheep. The flowers are from Paisley and the sun is from Mickey & Friends.

Stay tuned for more PDDU Animals!

Thanks for stopping by!
