Well, around Christmas time I discovered the Cricut and fell in LOVE! I thought it couldn't get any better, but then I found out about Sure Cuts A Lot, a program that lets you use your Cricut to cut files from your computer. Lauren from My Time Made Easy is a genius when it comes to templates and has made hers available in SVG, which is what SCAL uses for the Cricut. So now, I don't have to cut them out by hand! It is so amazing to watch your Cricut cutting out what's on your computer screen.
Well, of course I started with Pick a Petal, one of Lauren's latest releases. The template goes together very nicely, however, I still need a lot more practice with the lid! This is my second attempt.
Here is a pic of the lid. It is a little uneven (okay a lot uneven!), but I'm hoping that with more practice I'll get better at it. This box as is is very roomy, and you can resize it with SCAL to make it even bigger! The rose is from Lauren's Rambling Roses cut file. I sponged each piece with Lavender Lace ink and rolled each petal. Again, more practice needed here. She is going to make a video too! Box is Lavender Lace, top is Pale Plum (I think--I was using some old 12 x 12 to experiment with), ribbon is PTI Plum Pudding, lace is from Flourishes. Tag on front of box is the Sentimental Frame cut file from MTME.
