For my first project today I used the Hello Kitty Greetings, and Martha Stewart's Seasonal Cake Art Cricut cartridges, my Gypsy, Expression, black, white, red & purple cardstock and my pink stickles.
First I used the Gypsy to weld the two Hello Kity Graduation Kitty's together and cut them out of black cardstock their height was a little over 4".  Next, I cut all the other pieces out.  I cut an extra Kitty out of white cardstock to put inside my card to add a greeting later. For the Graduation cap I used the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art cartridge cut at 2" and placed a small pop dot on it. Stickles on the nose. 
Here is a picture of the inside of the card.

For my next project I used Disney's Best of Pixar Cricut cartridge.  I took a clear plastic frame and cut a mat out and placed it inside the frame.  Next I cut Nemo at 3". I also cut the bubbles out of vellum & made a treasure chest.  I stuck it down to the frame with glue dots.  I made this frame for my son so when we go to see the newly remodled aquarium at the zoo.  I am really excited to see the all new aquarium!  We so love the zoo!! 

I decided the treasure chest was too much so I took it off.

My Cricut Craftroom Theme Day Thursday-- Forever Young Cricut Cartridge

Happy Thursday!  Today is Theme Day Thursday at My Cricut Craftroom! I know that I usually post on Scrapbook Friday's but today's Theme I couldn't pass up!  It is one of my favorite cartridges: Forever Young!

Today I created a purse that I am going to put candy in.  I used the Forever Young Cricut cartridge, patterned cardstock, stickles and a pre-made flower.
I cut the purse at fit to page which ended up being 4" on my Expression.  I then cut the inside pieces out of yellow cardstock and glued them to the inside.  Next I taped the box together and added my stickles to the sun glasses.  I added velcro to the flap on the purse and on the outside I glued a pre-made flower that I won.

I really do love this cartridge and use it quite a lot.  Usually I use the "Girl" images so today I thought I would make a purse.  Here is a picure of my finished project:


Please make sure to stop by to see all the other great projects from the very talented design team at My Cricut Craftroom.  Have a crafty day!!
