I love my Cricut!

For those of you who don't know what a Cricut is; its the most fantastical die cut machine ever. It can cut words in different fonts, shapes, characters, etc. It is the best invention EVER!!! I love it! So when I was asked to make something to donate to a silent auction I made these using my Cricut! I used the 10 1/2 by 10 1/2 pictures I bought at Dollar Mania and Mod Podged scrapbook paper to them. I cut the paper just slightly bigger than the board and then sanded the edges off. Then I used the Cricut to make the words.

This one was made using the "Love Struck" cartridge and then I used some paper flowers, rhinestones, ribbon and a little metal charm I had in my stash. I attached everything with my glue gun. I LOVE it, haha, get it??

This one was made using the "Stone Script" cartridge. Again I just added some bling to dress it up.

This last one was made with the "Ashlyn's Alphabet" cartridge. I used some eyelets, ribbon and some googly eyes covered with gauze. It looks really cute in person with the eyes peeking through. I saw an idea somewhere on one of the blogs I follow using the googly eyes on votive candles and wrapping with gauze. I bet that looks really cute when the candle is lit up. I'll do that come Halloween.

Here is a closeup of the googly eyes:

I included an easel in the package I donated. I think this is a cute idea for someone who wants to decorate for the different holidays but doesn't have a lot of room or a lot of decorations yet. Until next time!
