So thats how the Cricut machine and I became acqainted. Its an amazing machine that is capable of cutting all kinds of shapes (depending on my many cartridges of shapes you are willing to buy) - you can change the size of each shape and of course use different thicknesses of paper and card.
I even looked them up online and found a very similar machine that cut the shapes out of fondant icing for cake makers!!! How amazing is that??!!
Anyhow - back to my paper fun week.... So here are some of the fun things I made with different cards and papers and of course using my shell stamps. I now have enough gift tags for the next year full of birthdays, anniversaries, hostess gifts etc! I also followed a tutorial posted by Kindra of Kindra's Creations who makes the most amazingly beautiful paper crafts - http://www.facebook.com/Kindras-Creations/218805806592?ref=ts
and made these 'french' flowers from an old french book of mine, tea stained them and put them together as she suggested. Lovely, I think. Thanks Kindra x
So can anyone guess why I call these "Diana" flowers? There's a clue in the writing on the flowers (which obviously comes from the book I used to make them.....) Anyone????
Here are some more colorful Cricut flowers I made into tags....
