Cricut Contest


Recently there was a contest on Cricut.com.  They made 5 images from their new cartridge, Create a Critter 2, available in Cricut Craft Room, which is kind of like an online design software.  I don't use it much because I have a Gypsy and because I have to haul my Cricut upstairs to hook it up to the computer to use it, but I couldn't resist entering the contest.  I wanted to use fabric to make a baby item with the lion image.  I used Heat & Bond Ultra to adhere the fabric.  You can see the result below.  The bib is from Hobby Lobby.


And guess what?  I was one of the winners!!!  Not the grand prize winner, but I did win this Hello Thursday's cartridges--CAC2 and Suburbia.   I am pretty stoked!  


This little ghost was another image--I decided to make a shaped card, but I couldn't get my images to weld.  I must be doing something wrong--need to practice more, but like I said, it's a pain bringing up the Cricut to the computer.  I wonder if you can use this app on an Ipad.  I don't have an Ipad but it would be a good excuse to get one don't you think?


So I just did the trick where you score the card back and use Sticky Strip to adhere the card front to it.  I used a retired SU set for the sentiment on the inside.  I put glitter on the little bag.  I think it's cute but there were LOTS of great entries using the little ghost.  CAC2 is a really cute cartridge and one I know I will use a lot.  So happy to win something for a change!  Thanks for stopping by.  I have been making lots of cards; just haven't gotten around to blogging them yet.  Have a great day!
