~New Cricut ART ~

3D Cupcake
I pieced this paper art cupcake together from shapes that I cut from my favorite paper
with my new Cricut Expression
I used the 2 cartridges that are included (Plantin Schoolbook and Accent Essentials)
The swirls, flower and leaf also were cut from the cartridges
The pearl and heart toppings were purchased embellishements.

WOW! I have found the Cricut Expression speeds up the creative process....
Shapes can be quickly and precisely cut, leaving lots of time to focus on the finishing details.....embellishments, chalking etc.
And, because each cartridge offers so many shapes you can
LAVISH your scrap book pages and other projects with layers and layers of
pretty paper!

Like this scrapbook page that I am working on....

What have you made with your Cricut?

New Cricut Personal Expression now available

Cricut Expression Personal cutting machine
now available at

Scrapbook artist and decorators love the new Cricut Expression the latest in the cricut cutting system.

This amazing machine can cut letters and shapes from .25 inch in size up to 23.5 inches. Quickly and precisely cuts your favorite paper and cardstock. Add the optional deep cut blade and housing and you can now cut chipboard, vinyl and magnet sheets.....

The Cricut die cutting system works with small cartridges, offering many fonts and shapes. This eliminates the need to collect and store many heavy die cuts. Cartridges also offer many creative ways to cut the shapes available...shadow, card, placecard, tag, end cap, theses are just some of the ways the basic shapes can be cut.

The Cricut Machine and the newer Cricut Expression work without a computer. But you can expand your created options with the design studio software.

With the Cricut DesignStudio software on your computer, you can create digital layouts from any and all desired images from the Cricut DesignStudio Library before you cut them. What You See Is What You Cut! You can weld images together to make new combinations or letters together to make words and phrases. You can change image properties, rotate, flip, shear, duplicate, or multi cut to your heart?s content.

I can tell you from personal experience....the machine is amazing!

I received my Cricut Expression machine last week and used it immediately to cut card stock letters for some scrapbook pages my daughters and I are working on. Pages can now be finished in no time at all...with perfectly cut letters and lavished and layered with shapes and paper piecings!

And, I love the ability I now have to match just the right die cut with my favorite paper! I can now spell out any words or sayings I want and can pick the paper to say it with! If you love to collect scrapbook paper and cardstock you need this machine to find great ways to show off your
fabulous paper finds!

I am excited to post some photos of things we have made with our new for updates...

Meanwhile be sure to check out the Cricut Machine and the new Cricut Expression at

check the new scrapbook are sometimes limited, so if you love this machine, please don't wait to purchase!

Watch the scrapbook category for new Cricut accessories, and some of my favorite paper collections coming very soon!
