Cricut: The Official Blog
Tuesday, May 10, 2011
Happy Tuesday, everyone!!  First off, I want to show you this week's new blog candy.  The winner this week will receive a custom-embroidered Gypsy tote bag!  These fabulous bags are embroidered by my friend Myrel France, who does such fantastic work.  Isn't that font too cute?  And check out that Cricut green!!  To enter, just leave a comment on today's post, and then come back each day during the week to leave a comment on each day's post. If you'd like to order your own Gypsy tote bag, you can just email Myrel directly at myrelf@aol.com.  Thanks, Myrel for sponsoring this week's giveaway!! 

This Gypsy bag is has a double handle, and is plenty spacious.

Check that out - I've got my Gypsy in there, along with my wallet and sunglasses case, and there's still room.

And for today's project, I want to share a card that Nana Susan made.  She used the Stamping cartridge to cut "Hello" at 1 inch in pink and green.  Btw, I think that the Stamping cartridge is one of the very BEST cartridges for card makers - it is incredibly useful with some great images and a perfect variety of sentiments.

The paper is from Stampin' Up, and the flowers were hand-cut from the paper and then punched with a Martha Stewart  Starburst punch.  Susan distressed the flowers by rolling the edges in water and bending up randomly.  The ribbon is also from Stampin' Up.

Soft colors with a distressed finish.  So beautiful and feminine.

The punched out middle and threaded buttons add a unique touch.

The inside of the card is simple, yet perfectly coordinating.

Check back later today as I will be announcing the two winners of the 3 month Cricut Circle membership!!
