I decided to bring out a cartridge and make some stuff from it. I didn't start with pictures or papers first, but with the cartridge first. I have a fairly extensive Cricut library so I really need to make more use of the ol' carts!
I started my first LO with this paper. I think it's Basic Gray paper but I'm not sure. With this PP it's pretty much already done, but since I like lumpy and bumpy I did add a few more things here and there...
Here are the cuts that started this... I *LOVE* MY GYPSY! I love that I can design on it and then add the appropriate paper on the mat and then I just have to roll the mat into the machine once. A couple of buttons later and voila. Done and done.
What I saw on the Animal Antics cartridge that I decided to use was "Let's Eat", to be used as a title, and a funny little colorful vulture along with it.
See that super cute vulture on the top left? Ha!
Next, I have this (crummy) picture of my son throwing a makeshift "party" - the picture stinks but I wanted to remember the moment anyway. I found "Cut Loose" as a title on Animal Antics, but it had a lawnmower as part of the cut. I messed with the image on my Gypsy for both the cut and its shadow, and had to do a tiny bit of cutting myself, and voila, sans lawnmower.
Detail shot of the title & journaling. I used regular punches for all of the circles.
I am *almost* done with this old line of CTMH paper. Almost. And that's all I did for today with that Cricut cartridge. Stay tuned for more Cricut fun.
Thanks for looking and for leaving love!
