Strawberries are so SWEET

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

Olive You (I love you) card

I saw this "olive" shape on the Home Accents cart and challenged myself to make a card with it. I used pop dots under the olives to add dimension. Carts used: Cuttin' Up, Home Accents. The cut file is in the right hand column. Enjoy

Halloween PDDU cuts

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

Calorie Free Donuts

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

Just a great Cricut tip

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.

Sock Monkey

When I got New Arrival Cart, I knew I had to make a sock monkey. Here he is. The cut file is in the right hand column

Dunkin Donuts Junkie

I LOVE DD coffee. I made a coffee cup card with the familiar "Thanks a Latte" theme. I hand cut the corrugated piece in the middle from some old packing materials I had (way to recycle!!). The cut file is in the right hand column. Enjoy

Pink Ladies

I made these with PDDU - they would be great for a card, layout or event. Think pink. (No cut file for these). Just for your inspiration!
