Breaking in the new CRICUT!

Hello everyone!

My boyfriend got me a cricut as one of my christmas presents and I have been dying to play with it. I had one a few years ago but I never used my computer along with it which is AWESOME. The one he got me came with a $25 gift certificate for the cricut online store. I had a bunch of fun picking out a bunch of individual images to buy. I ended up spending five extra bucks which when it comes to scrapbooking embellishments...ain't half bad. My favorite thing so far is planning out the page on the computer so that no paper is wasted. Example: I'm going to cut a title using a black sheet of 12x12 paper. What else can I cut that I may want to use in the future? A black fence! A black cobweb! Then what was left of the page I filled up with flowers so that I can make flowers when I feel like it. It's all laid out on the screen for me-super easy! I bought a little storage box to put my 'extra' cut outs in so that they don't get messed up before I use them.

So, tonight I had these grand plans of doing a scrapbook page. I didn't know what I was going to do but I had an idea of some flowers that I wanted to make. I didn't get as far as I hoped I would because now it's 3am and my back hurts so I need to lay down but I still thought I'd share what I got done.

I made all the flowers out of white cardstock (except the bright orange one= orange paper) I used 3 different water color pencils on the biggest flower to make a soft blended color. I left the 3 smaller flowers white for now...I might glimmer mist them later on, I haven't decided yet.

Hopefully I can get the actual page done tomorrow!

Peace & love.
