Hello Kitty

My Hello Kitty Greetings cricut cartridge arrived this weekend. It is the cutest cartridge ever!The pieces are very simple to put together. Every image can be cut as a card and there is a Hello Kitty for every season. Here is an example of a birthday card I made for one of my daughter's friends.
I also made a card out of the just Hello Kitty's face using the card feature. This one is so cute and extremely easy!

Last, but not least is one of the Holiday images. There is a Hello Kitty for every situation- birthday, Christmas, Halloween, graduation, bon voyage, get well, thank you, thinking of you, Valentine's day, friendship, and I'm sorry. This is my elf Hello Kitty that I will be using on a Christmas card.

Swaps are done!

I think it's time I take a little break from swaps. I did so many this month, I thougth I'd never finish! I am almost done. All that's left is Christmas tags and they should be fun. I have a lot of new stuff and I really just want to play around with it for a while and make some Christmas gifts. Here are my final swap projects. This first one is my Halloween layout. I changed it in my head so many times, and this is what I ended up with. I love owls so I thought it would be cute to use an owl in a Halloween situation.

The other projects I finally finished up were my calendar pages for November and July.The big square mat is where the calendar will go and the other mat is for a photo.

Wild Cards

I am having a lot of fun with the new cricut Wild Card cartridge. It creates the cutest shaped cards with matching envelopes. It is so simple to make really cute looking cards. Here are a few of the ones I have created so far. This one is the owl card. I love owls right now and they are everywhere in scrapbooking. The next one I worked on is the ornament card for Chrismas. This one is also very simple to make. I just cuttlebugged the top layer and it's done!

I have experimented wth 2 other cards so far and I can't wait to get to the rest of them. Here is my version of the house card. I think it is intended to be a house warming card, but I added a little and turned it into a gingerbread house for Christmas.

The last card I've made so far was the doily card. I made this one for a swap on my yahoo group cuttlebug card exchange. (come and join if you like making cards). This is for an exchange where we had to create a card with scalloped shapes on it. I threaded ribbon through the openings in the scallops and embossed a scalloped circle to be the background for the stamped image. In addition to all the cool cards and envelopes, this cartridge also has an entire alphabet as well as other shapes on it. It is a must have if you enjoy making cards with your cricut!
