Happy 4th Birthday Exploring Cricut and More!

Hello everyone!
Today is such a fun day for me! I get to post once again for Exploring Cricut and More!
This is a very special week as Exploring Cricut and More! is turning 4 years old!
I love this blog and all of the inspiration I receive each day! Diane is amazing!

For today's post I decided to embellish a gift bag using the Wrap it Up! Cricut Cartridge and  the Cricut Expression machine.

I used the Phrase feature including the layer to create the "You Take the Cake" sentiment cut at 6.5"
I also used the Tag feature including the blackout cut at 4.5".

I kept it simple and added just a bit of Glossy Accents and little gems.

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to join in the challenge for the chance at some great prizes!

Pumpkin Basket for Exploring Cricut and More!

Good Morning everyone and Happy Saturday! How are you enjoying your weekend so far? Is it starting to look like fall where you are??

Diane has been very busy over at Exploring Cricut and More!creating a wonderful week of Halloween themed  projects. I was so happy she asked me to present a project for today.

I was looking thru my Cricut Cartridges and decided I wanted to try the Pumpkin Basket from the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 Cartridge. I did use the Scoring Blade, but for this particular cut, it really wasn't necessary...not too many folds.

I cut the pumpkin at the recommended 9". I decided to ink the edges and add some florist wire for the "vine". I finished it off with an embossed tag and baker's twine.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please have a wonderful weekend!
