Laughter and Smiles Layout

I was determined to use only the Cheerful Season's Cartridge. But there wasn't a cloud on this cartridge, so I welded some shapes together to make it. I also welded the flowers together and used the "hide contour" feature of the GYPSY software to hide some of the flowers. I am very pleased with the results... but in the future, I think I will just use the cloud on another cartridge I have. I was able to use retired Creative Memories papers from my "stash". Most of these are from the Everyday Palette.

Thankful Layout

I have really enjoyed playing with my Cricut this weekend and using the new Exclusive Creative Memories Cricut Cartridges. This page was made using Cheerful Seasons Cartridge but I used the papers from the Reminisce Power Palette and coordinating Additions. I made a few modifications using my Gypsy. I made a second border using a different background sheet and changed the color of the vine and shadow piece. I love the Creative Memories Precision Point adhesive for gluing those very small pieces like the vines. This adhesive goes on like ink in a pen and doesn't ooze out the edges...Best glue pen I've seen!!

For those of you, who are new to using a Cricut, I will be demonstrating at my next crop, on August 21st.

Happy Scrappin!
