My other passion

The Cricut!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay if you have a cricut you know exactly what I mean, or at least I hope you understand... I love my bug(s) yeah I have 2, I use them all the time, I am learning more and more about the cricut every time I turn my bug on! I don't know how I scrapped without it all those years! I am currently saving my money for the Gypsy oh yeah then I think my little family will be complete I want to start a new blog program called Lets get Buggy Cricut Fridays, I will post a new cartridge, a new project, a tutorial, organization, my cricut station, and some inspiration, maybe some contests so you will want to be sure to stop by here on Fridays.... Yes I know today is Saturday but this is just a preview, next Friday will officially be the start of my Lets get Buggy Cricut Friday's Today I wanted to showcase two embellies I made last night using the new Paisley cartridge (Oh I love this cart)

Owl # 1 page#-42 cut at 5 1/2 inches
Owl-I used heavy cardstock (CTMH textured) for the base so I used the multi-cut function on the E with my pressure at medium, speed at medium and blade housing at 5
I cut all of my layers and used my zig glue pen for the bigger pieces and my X for the smaller pieces like his feet and stripes!
I used American Crafts pattern paper for his wings

Zebra page #-71 cut at 8 inches
Zebra- I used heavy cardstock for the base (CTMH textured) I used the multi-cut function on the E with the pressure at medium and speed at medium blade housing at 5
The car was cut with light cardstock from HL so I removed the multi-cut function and just cut it out once with all the rest of the settings the same- the flower is CTMH textured cardstock the same color one side is darker than the other so I used the lighter side as the center of the flower
Look closely at the zebras face you may see a little sparkle a nose ring( I am not a big fan of nose piercings personally, but I thought this zebra looked like she needed one, it totally works for her) I used bitty sparkles from CTMH

Perfect for a sweet 16 card or layout or a new car layout

Check out her bling... I can only imagine her rocking out in her new car to some fun music!

Both images were cut using my Expresssion

This cart is great for card making and layouts I think the images are very chic and girly but I can see some of the images being used for boy projects just change the colors!
I hope you enjoy today's little projects be sure to come back next Friday to see the first installment of Lets Get Buggy Cricut Friday's

Happy Crafting
