Cricut Saturday!

Good Morning!  I'm so glad you're here to see my projects for
My Paper Crafting's
Cricut Saturday
I have been so busy creating digital image projects that I'd forgotten just how much I enjoy using my Cricut.  I know many of you have switched to other cutters (ok, I also have a Pazzles), but I really do love using my E2 and the huge cartridge collection that I have.
For today's projects, I used all three of the CTMH cartridges - they are so versatile!
For this first card I used the new Artbooking cartridge.  Using the E2 made it so easy to size the images I selected because I could see them right on the screen (I don't use CCR).  Since all of the feature sizes are proportioned to the base images which are sized for page layouts, I used Real Dial size.
"Sweet" is the title feature on page 49.  The flower uses the icon images on page 48.  The tag is a border inage on page 50.  I also used the Paper Crafting World digi image Bear in Sundress with Daisies and colored her with Copics.  The ribbon is my own hand-died crinkle ribbon.  Finally, I embossed the mat and added Stickles for a little bling.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
 Die Cuttin Divas "Orange and White" 
Crafting by Designs "Anything Goes" 
Craftin Boutique Challenges "Anything Goes" 

For the flower and leaf on this card I used the Art Philosophy cartridge.
The flower can be found on page 50 and the leaf on page 56.  I used a Pearl Pen to add some accents to the flower and card border and adhesive lace strips to border the sentiment strip.  

The base and pop-up are from the Artiste cartridge on page 51.  The parts cut to the perfect size for an A2 card.  The papers are from the Carta Bella Cowgirl line.  I love colors!!
Finding the different cuts for these projects really made me want to spend more time exploring these cartridges.  Next, I want to use the fabulous stamps that came with the set.
Thanks for joining me today.  I hope you'll visit My Paper Crafting to see more Cricut projects.
