Cricut: The Official Blog
Tuesday, April 26, 2011
Happy Tuesday!!  Ok, who stayed up late with me to watch the Expression 2 launch on HSN?  Wasn't that fun??  I even saw one of Wendy's birthday layouts on there - woohoo!!  So far, they have announced 2 winners of the design challenge contest.  So the rest of us will have to bite our nails til tomorrow.  And speaking of winners - don't forget to leave a comment today for a chance to win the Elegant Cakes cartridge.  It is gorgeous and will work in any Cricut - not just the Cake machine!

Here's a quick and sweet card that Nana Susan made for her little grandson who is about to turn 2 years old.  See details below...



The card itself is folded to 6 7/8" x 4 7/8". 
The blue mat is 6 1/2" x 4 1/2".
Top animal print is 3 1/2" x 4 1/4".
Lower plaid print is 2 3/4" x 4 1/4".



Cuts are from Birthday Bash cart.
 - the Bear in Wagon is 3 1/2".
 - the number 2 is 1 1/2".
 - "Celebrate" is 3/4".
 - the inside greeting "Happy Birthday Little Guy" is 2 1/2"

Have a fantastic Tuesday!!

I had a poorly boy so missed the launch but I love the card Nana Susan has done and will be watching your blog for news of you winning ;)

Linda Peterson said...

I also stayed up for the launch. What a fabulous machine.
Love your card!

Melissa said...

I thought I saw Wendy's bday layout last night!!!! I just posted on her blog asking if it was hers I saw! COOL!

I would venture a guess that you will be a winner of some sorts because everything you create is fabulous!

Said "hi" to you at Robyn's live stream last night, but it was moving so stinkin' fast!

Hope Emily is doing good today and tell Nana Susan that I adore her card!

JenJackScrap said...

WooooHooo! I saw Nana Susan's layout on the 8 a.m. HSN broadcast this morning. Not only did they SHOW it, but they didn't toss it into the pile with the rest, they held it and used it as an example of the amazing things that the E2 can create and went on about her detail, etc. Yaaaaaay Nana Susan!!!!

what a cute card...I watched the launch, then went to bed, I spent the next day procrastinating about the E2. When I went on the 7pm showing I called, but it was too
late, it had sold out... :(
really bummed, oh well. I have an
expression and the Imagine but I feel like the updates will not be the same.... Dawn RI

AShu93 said...

I couldn't stay up that late, but I had the show on tv as I fell asleep, so I didn't see any layouts.

This is an fun card. I'll have to add Birthday Bash to my wish list.

I was up watching the launch of E2 but the more I saw, the more I was sure that I didn't need it. Weird? I guess I LOVE my purple Expression too much. Plus I have an extra $345 in my pocket!
