I have been inspired by all of the strawberry ideas I've seen and wanted to try my hand at Strawberry cuts. The berry part is cut with George and I have 2 different stem cuts, one with George and one with Home Accents (as shown inpicture). Both cuts are on the same cut file (in the right hand column). Enjoy

Because I love my Paper Dolls Dress Up Cartridge and I love Halloween, I put all of the Halloween cuts on one file so they are easy to find off of the cartridge. To use one of the shapes, simple copy and paste that shape onto a new page.
The .cut file is in the right hand column. Enjoy

My son loves strawberry frosted donuts, so I just had to make a bunch of assorted ones. The .cut file is in the right hand column. (I cut the lower circle from tan and then used my brown inkpad to shade the edges. I cut the frosting, then used clear embossing powder to make them glossy looking. Finally I used a scalloped circle punch to punch out the bite mark on the chocolate one). Carts used: George and Celebrations

I love using white sticker paper in my Cricut machine. I set the pressure to 2 and it cuts through the sticker part, but not through the backing, making a sticker that is easy for you to peel off. I use it most when doing small paper piecing (like some of the Mickey cuts). If it is another color that I need, I color the piece I cut with a Sharpie, let it dry a few seconds and then peel it off. It makes the paper piecing so easy. I buys boxes of the sticker sheets at a time on ebay - jsut search for 8 1/2 x 11 stickers - they are super cheap.
