This is a fish-shaped card I made for my cousin's 5th birthday. I used the gypsy to make the card fish shaped. I used Create a Critter for the fish image. The fish"scales" were made using a wide variety of stickles. I wish I had a better picture to show the shape better, but I forgot to take a picture until he opened it, so I just layed it ontop of the envelope and took the pic. Thanks for looking

I printed the picture out on my computer using regular computer paper and trimmed it to the size I needed. I cut all the lettering out using Wall Decor and more. I used the gypsy to line it up and size it to my liking. The hearts in the corner are also from Wall Decor and More. I used cardstock to cut all the letters and hearts out. I then adhered everything to the tile so it wouldn't move while I was sealing it. I then used Mod Podge to seal the tile.
I love making these tiles. I think they make great gifts and they are very inexpensive to make.
Thanks for looking.

This is the birthday card I made my nephew, who happens to play almost all sports. I used the Potpourri cartridge for the All Star saying, which I used cricut markers to write on the banner with. I used the Everyday Paperdolls for all the sports items. I also used the cricut markers to write on the Happy Birthday. I first cut it out as a shadow, and then used the regular "cut" with the markers. I hope you like it. Thanks for looking!

These are 3 card that I made using my Cuttlebug embosser folders. I then used a glitter gel pen to trace/outline all (or most) of the embossed images. I used rhinestone bling to add a little extra to the card. I really like how these turned out, and they are very quick and easy to make. Thanks for looking!

These are my first attempt at tissue paper tiles. They are of my two sons. I made a set for my dad and a set for my father-in-law. I couldn't believe how easy they were to make and how incredibly cute they turned out.
The inside of the card said ... Thanks for being the pee in my pants!
Cute don't you think?

This is the fishing card I made for my dad. I used a few different carts for this one, but mainly Everyday Paper Dolls. I used my gypsy to layout the background and then to cut it out with the cricut, so I would no where everything would be on the card since it has a lot of elements to this card.
This is the real Mollie... Isn't she adorable? She is my mom's dog. I have her sister. They are just over a year old.
This is one of my favorite cards I have made. It is the very cute hippo on the Create a Critter cartridge. I used the gypsy to weld 2 hippos together. The image on the right is the inside of the hippo card. The Create a Critter cartridge is one of my favorite cartridges because of the very easy layering.
I used the gypsy and cricut to create this arrow card. I used the Learning Curve cricut cartridge. This was for the principal. His favorite saying is "Excellent"!

This is what one of my demo tables looks like.
This is my cake I did for a summer cake. I used the cake that JoAnn's had because they wanted to keep it and display it. It turned out cute, but I had a lot of trouble with this one. First I was using their machine, not my usual one and it didn't cut properly at first. Then the cuts I was trying to use were not playing nice. But in the end it turned out pretty cute, even if it is not the same cake I started out making.
This is my Memorial Day cake I made for my Michael's demo. I thought this cake turned out pretty neat, for a fake cake.
This is one of the first cakes I made while demoing at Michael's. It wasn't one of the most creative cakes I ever made, but it showed what the Cricut Cake could do with fondant.
This is my dad's birthday cake I made him using the Cricut Cake. I was in Chicago for his birthday so when I returned home and learned how to use this machine I made him my very first cake!!
