School almost out what Crafts have you been designing?

Hello everyone,

Since school is almost out I have been working on come cards for my kids bus driver and teachers.
I am just wondering what other great items have you all been crafting?

For the apple I used Home Accents Cartridge for the worm I use the s in Gorge and for the word thanks I used Gorge.
I used a 5x7 card and cut my paper to that size and when I cut out the apple I used the key fit to page.
I added glitter glue and made my worm pop out by cuting the card and folding that part in.

For my bus I used Doodle Charm Cartridge and for the kids Paper Doll Dress up and the words, and stop sign I used George. I did the same thing as the apple but I cut out the windows and used velum paper so you can see my kids looking out the window when the card is closed. 

For this apple I used Doodle Charm and for the S and thanks I used George.  When the card is closed you do not see the worm. (be careful with this apple not to make the worm to big).

I really love that I made my thank you card this way this year.  The teaches and my kids bus driver really liked them and all have comment that they will keep these in there albums.  I like the personal touch when you say thanks or sorry.  How about you?

Loving my cricut

With so many issues between PC and MTC.  I have learned to just deal with what I have.  I love that I am doing really creative things with my PC.  I am so excited to use the new Cricut craft room.  I have checked out some of the previews and I love that it is free.  THANK YOU PC.  I will post some of my other work.  As I am just a beginner.  I have had my Cricut since December and as a computer wana be geek I have had to research everything about it and know I am finally using my machine.     I just LOVE it...

Thursday, April 7, 2011

here are two of my cards done with the cricut machine and  simpley charming cartridge...
Man do I love to work with charcole it really makes the little animals come to life....


My personal thought about the PC and MTC issue

With so many people upset with Provo Craft, and going on to purchase new machines.  Several of us have been left behind.  I do agree that Provo Craft is missing the needs of thier customers.  Right know I love to read all the post of the new machines that are out there.  Unfortunatley I am among many who have to stay with PC due to the $$$$$$.  So I have to look at the bright part of it all.  I still can use the machine.  It is still allowing me to produce cute work and keep my mind saine.  I will not allow anyone to really nickle and dime me so I can do what I love to do.  I have learned to be a savy shopper and "Make it Work"  per   project runway.....

For anyone who still uses PC what is are your thoughts.  Hay did I not hear somewhere that PC was trying to do something where even though we still have to use there carts.  it would be free online.  What is the word on this.......
