Introducing A New Family Member......

......a scrapbook family member that is.  Her name is Cricut.  I had resisted inviting her to be a part of our family for many years. 
"I don't need her."
"I have too many scrapbooking tools and supplies already." 
"I think it would be a waste of money." 
I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW SILLY I WAS!!!  I purchased a small Cricut about two weeks ago and I truly don't know how I lived without her for so long.  As soon as I opened the box  I was addicted.  Joann Fabric was having a great sale on cartridges so I treated myself and purchased several.  I haven't stopped creating since.  Because it has been such a long time since I have shared anything that I have created, I thought it would be fun to post some Cricut projects today.  One of my very favorite cartridges is called Create a Critter.  Several projects have been completed using it. 
I made this little journal for Drew's Mommy so that she could read all about our day together. 
A banner for Emma.
A banner for Kate.


A sweet little lion card.
This next little card was made using the New Arrival cartridge.

I saved my favorite project for last.... I was asked to make a gift card holder for a friends wedding.  I just knew that the border in the Cindy Loo cartridge would be the perfect thing for the icing on my "cake".
As you can see, I am having a great time with my new little "friend"  I can't wait to create more projects to share with you.  Check back soon----I am off to the studio to play.
xoxo
Mimi

Your projects are amazing! I love the journal book to keep track of Drew's activities...the animals in polka dots are so cute. I'm sorry that I didn't see the completed wedding cake gift card box in person...I'm sure the pictures don't begin to do it justice. There's no stopping you now Mimi!

I have been trying to talk myself out of purchasing one for myself, but I think you just ruined that! What a beautiful batch of things you've made with it. I'm sold!
