Hello Thursday day 2 using the NEW Playtime and Twinkle Toes Cricut Lites

Hello, friends!!

I hope you all liked what 2 projects I posted yesterday. I had a ton of fun making them! Those cartridges have tons of possibilities as do the ones I have for you all today! Playtime and Twinkle Toes are perfect for those of you with children, grandchildren, or just know some children ;-) I guess that pretty much includes everyone!

 Now on to today's projects....By the way I am getting tons of comments on these cards about them being made with my Imagine, but they are actually made using my expression. I stamped the focal points, they are not printed....


Twinkle Toes

The paper is from DCWV and Papertrey Ink.

The three layered cuts are cut at 1 3/4".
The stamps and the ribbon are from Papertrey Ink.
Playtime
The paper is from SU!
The layered shapes are cut at 3 1/4".
The stamps are from Papertrey Ink.

Don't forget that I am giving away a Pink Expression!! All you have to do to win is leave a comment on all of my Hello Thursday posts(Thursday, Friday, and Monday) and follow this blog either by email, google reader, or by clicking the follow button the the right side of the blog. I will choose a winner next Wednesday.

Also, check out Joy's blog to see her other Hello Thursday Projects and prizes:

See you guys later!!!

Great cards! I thought that those two cartridges would be too cutesy for me, but you have shown how to use them "out of the box", and not have the cards be so cutesy.

Pamela said...

I think you did some great cards but I do find the Blessed Mother cut hard to tell what it is. Knowing it is from the Inspiration cartridge helped me, but if I received the card and wasn't aware of Cricut images, I might think it was the silhouette of something else.

Bonnie said...

As always, your cards are fabulous!
