Cricut: The Official Blog
Monday, February 28, 2011
If you're popping over from Everyday Cricut, thanks for stopping by again!  It's a wild and crazy week here on my blog, so you picked a great time to join us!  Here is the altered picture frame designed by Bling Queen Wendy.  If you haven't already, be sure to visit Everyday Cricut for instructions on how to make this.  There's also great blog candy on all 3 of our blogs!  Also, see below for today's NEW blog candy during our Week of Giveaways to celebrate hitting 2000 followers - and now almost 2100.  Wow!!  We're also releasing another new kit today, and it's gorgeous, so read on...

Today's blog candy is the Enchanted set by Imaginisce. There is a TON of stuff with this!! 6 sheets of double-sided patterned papers, a 6x6 paper pad, 6 acrylic stamps, ribbon, and bunches of embellishments. Isn't it SO cute??? To enter to win this, just follow this blog and then leave a comment on today's post. It's also helpful if you leave an email address so I can contact you if you win.

And finally, I'd like to introduce you to our newest kit, "Beautiful", which was designed by the Bling Queen herself, Wendy Lawrence.  Wendy and I are both big fans of Tim Holtz, and this layout was inspired by the idea of "Tim meets Cricut".  Who could ask for more?  Just check out all of the hardware, details, textures and new techniques.  Working through this kit will take your learning and creativity to new levels.  To order, email me at  Include your state and preferred payment method (PayPal or check).  See below for details.

Included with this kit, you will receive: all of the patterned papers, cardstock, ribbon, and all of the Tim Holtz hardware (hardware may vary slightly from kit to kit) and grungeboard needed to make the layout. You'll also get our detailed yet easy to follow directions with Cricut Chart, well-organized written instructions and plenty of color photographs.

To complete this project as shown, you will need the following supplies: Cricut Expression and mat, Home Decor cartridge, Ranger Distressing Inks-Dusty Concord & Walnut Stain (or any purple and brown chalk ink), Cuttlebug with Swiss Dots embossing folder (optional), Collage & Notebook set embossing folder from Ranger (or any other embossing folders of your choice), paper piercing tool, 3D pop dots, Mallet to pinch photo corners, glossy accents or paper glaze (to attach clear fragments to top of stamp), plus basic tools and adhesive.

This complete kit is $30, or you can purchase just the directions for $10. Shipping is available and ranges from $5 in California to $6-$9 in the rest of the US, depending on location. We're also happy to combine shipping, and we charge no more than $10 shipping even if ordering multiple kits. We're releasing a new kit everyday this week, so we are happy to keep adding to your order as you get more and more tempted as the week goes on!

This "Beautiful" kit will be ready for shipping on March 28th. Or if you're local to the Northern California area, you are welcome to pick-up in person.

To order, email me at Include your state so I can calculate postage, and also your preferred payment method (PayPal or check).

Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you enjoyed the projects. Didn't Wendy do an amazing job? Be sure to check in again tomorrow. On Everyday Cricut, I will have a his & hers card project. Also a video with some design tips on how to take your project to the next level. And there will be a new kit to show you here, plus brand new blog candy that I think you'll go "Buggy" about. Hmmmmm.
