On my way to my crop in Quakertown I noticed that I passed by a Walmart. Shirley who hosted the crop informed me that this Walmart had ALL of the new Cricut Lite carts in stock the other day. So on the way home I could not resist and stopped to see what they had. They had most of the new ones, they were out of stock on about six of them. So of course I couldn't stand there and not bring one of these new carts home with me so I got..........
I am on vacation this week, have gotten next to no scrapping or card making done, but I have been doing a lot of blog hopping. I came across the cutest video on Tim Holtz's blog. Check 3 year old Pezza making a Ranger distress inks masterpiece. TIM HOLTZ WITH NO RULES I have run across Pezza's mother's blog in my blog hopping travels so while you are there checking out the video you should check out the rest of the blog too! Enjoy!
Look at what I won at MY PINK STAMPER!! If you haven't been to Robyn's blog you have to go on over and check it out. She has great ideas and videos all about using Cricut cartridges! I won all four of her new stamp sets coming out next week. All of her stamp sets work nicely with Cricut cartridges. I already have one and can't wait to get the four new ones!! See the Winning post!
I got an email this afternoon from a friend who had located the new Cricut Lite Cartridges at a local Walmart, the one of three that I had not gotten to yet. So I made a quick trip over there tonight after dinner and picked up MEOW and LIVE SIMPLY. I am doing a happy dance!!! Don't have time to play with them tonight, hopefully tomorrow night! I am so thrilled, I was obsessed with getting these two carts it was driving me crazy LOL. Now I am putting myself on a scrap spending restriction until CKC at the end of July.
I am still feeling less than motivated to create anything. I did do a card and a cut both from Create a Critter last night. I got my new Peachy Keen faces stamps in the mail and wanted to try them out. They are just adorable. Here is what I did.
The penguin came out cute, but when I was trying to do the new hide contour feature on my Gypsy and as you see by the little line beneath the beak I missed something I should have hidden! I also didn't have any of my colored pencils handy to color in his beak.
This I was pretty happy with how the card turned out. I might make the cuts slightly smaller if I do this one again. I think the fawn was cut at 3.5 inches and this is an A2 size card. I messed up her face a little bit. The stamp smeared a little bit and when I used my white gel pen to finish her eye it smeared too! I may take a black pen ad try to touch up her eye tonight.
I doubt I will do any crafting tonight the Flyers are playing at 8:00 and then tomorrow night my DD has music lessons and I have to help her start studying for finals. So this weekend once again I will try to break out of my scrapper's block and get creative!
I am having total scrapper's block. I just don't feel creative at all. I forced myself to make two cards last night. I want to scrap, I really do but when I sit down to do it I lose my mojo. I only got these cards done because I scrap lifted the ideas from My Pink Stamper's website. The bird house is a shaped card -- Robyn did in a video and the fish one was posted by a creative lady during a challenge on MPS site. I am not real happy with the birdhouse card, it is missing something. I do like the fish card, the sequin scales really add to it. I intend to use MPS's Puny-licious Stamps to out little sayings on the cards, so they are actually not 100% done. Maybe tonight if my mojo returns!
The Cricut Message Board has been a buzz since yesterday when someone posted that they stumbled across new Cricut Carts at Walmart. They are called Cricut Lite and there are supposedly 24 of them!!
Here is a partial list of the new carts. The crazy thing this caught everyone by surprise --- no announcement by PC just a mysterious appearance at Walmart! Here is a link to a bunch of pictures of the new carts that I found on 2peas http://picasaweb.google.com/phiedragon/CricutLite#
My two favs so far are of course Meow and Live Simply, couldn't get a picture of that one but it has a little hedgehog on it that is just too stinkin' cute!
I went to AC Moore on Sunday to get one of the new release Cricut cartridges, even after telling myself that I really didn't need them and would wait for the long anticipated "CAT" cartridge. I picked up not ONE but TWO of the new carts! I got them price matched for Joann's sale price of $39.99. I picked up Cindy Loo and Freshly Picked. I have them out of their box and linked to my Gypsy but haven't done anything else with them. It has been a busy week so I am looking to play this weekend! So by the weekend I promise to have projects using all of my new cartridges posted.
Here are my two new aquisitions from this past weekend.
Here is my eBay find for only $26 incl. shipping!
And just because I love this cart so so so much I thought I would ad it to this post too!
Hi! Welcome to my blog. I have recently updated it and I am going to really try to update it several times per week. I have been scrapbooking for about 10 years and making cards on an off throughout that time. But in the last year I have really gotten into using my cricut for both scrapbook layouts and cards and that is what you will find on this blog along with various other creations of mine. Enjoy, stop back and visit often!
