I picked up Cindy Loo last night and I love it! I also picked up an I Rock and I'm working on learning the skills. I do love the gems - sorry, I can NOT bring myself to use the word "bling" - totally hate it...and dangit, I just said it! I'm FINALLY working on the scrapbook again - this is, after all why I started scrapbooking anyway - go figure! Just been making cards lately! I will get my little girl's 1st year done before her 2nd birthday!

Made a get well card for my daughter's swim instructor. She has been in and out of the hospital and we miss her! That's why it's a mermaid and I put in the inside that her fishies missed her!
This was my project for the infomercial contest, and here is the info I sent them:
I was so excited to participate in this contest and was inspired by my kids. I wanted to create a new piece of wall art for their room, so even before I had received my 3 Birds on Parade cartridge, I had a vision in my head for my little knight and my sweet princess.
Using a 12 x 12 canvas, I first painted it bright green, then I cut out an 11.5" base page from Storybook (Flourish3/the #4) and adhered that to the canvas.
I used 3 Birds on Parade to cut 5 1/2" birds for the knight bird (Knight) and the fairy bird (Fairy). I used both Storybook and Lyrical Letters (Jumbo) to cut the letters for the words and I cut them from 2 different colors and shadowed them. I had them drawn up in DS, but was uncertain if we could use that, so I went all manual, just in case! I used gems and pearls to add embellishments to the crown, sword, and tutu.
I am very excited for how it turned out. I absolutely love using my Cricut and it is my way to relax and create! I painter and a photographer, so I like combining all my skills to create unique pieces of art. It is a constant learning process and I'm always finding new things to try!
Some close ups of the birds and detail work.
