Cricut Lite Lacy Labels

Here's a quick thank you card I made using the new Cricut Lite cartridge, Lacy Labels.  On the keypad, it is #21.  I think picking the papers took more time than cutting and assembling the card.  Once I had decided on the paper, I used my Cricut Design Studio (because it hasn't been added to the G library yet) to place the elements on the mat so I could load the different papers and cut everything without unloading/reloading the mat.  After assembling, I added a few adhesive pearls and some faux stitching using a white Inkssentials pen. 

To see another project using this cartridge, visit my vinyl blog.  I used keypad #10 to make a decorative tile.  Hope to be crafting and posting much more in the days to come...SCHOOL'S OUT!!!!

Blog Award

I got my very first blog award  from Lori over at Scrappin' My Stress Away.  I'm so glad to hear that someone enjoys what I'm posting here.  I really only started the blog because my 12 year old DS was sick of being asked what he thought about my projects.  He suggested I start a blog so other "people like me" could see (and he wouldn't have to, lol).  Thanks again, Lori. 

So it's time to pass this award on to 5 more inspiring blogs.  It's so hard to decide on only 5, but here goes:  she's got a new blog, with great ideas...check it out.  If you like mini albums, you'll love Carol's blog. Tammy does some incredible layouts! Here's another newer blog with lots of promise of great projects. Couldn't leave our Candian friends out.  You're going to love what Brandilynn does.
