Hello, friends!

Today is the Cricut launch for the NEW E2 (non-anniversary edition) over on HSN. To check it out go here ==> HSN

More fun. Greater creativity. Premiering 9/26 on HSN.
We’ve taken everything you love about the Cricut Expression machine – including all the fun – and made it even better. Tune into HSN on September 26 at 12:01 AM EST (and times all throughout the day!) for the premiere of this amazing new crafting wonder. During the premiere, you’ll get an up-close look at all the new features we’ve crammed into this machine. Here’s a little sneak peak at just a few of them:
  • Amazing new, large, fast, full-color LCD screen, so you can see everything on your mat before you cut.
  • Cuts with ALL Cricut and Cricut Imagine Art cartridges . You know, all those cartridges you haven’t told your husband about?
  • Cricut Wireless – Get wireless updates to your machine!
  • Material Setting. The machine will remember your settings for materials you like to cut!
  • Two great cartridges pre-loaded onto the machine – Cricut Essentials and Cricut Alphabet, PLUS two extra cartridges in the box – Art Nouveau and Spring Fever!
So what does all this mean for you? Cricut takes all the hard work out and gives you perfect precision every time. Creating just became way easier and way more fun, so you can do what you do best – be creative!

When you tune into HSN, you’ll also see a ton of fabulous project ideas, so get ready to be inspired. Here’s when to watch:

Today's card is made using the Spring fever cartridge. One of the hot trends right now are silhouette images and this cartridge includes two profile silhouettes! I just love them because they remind me of cameos and who does not love a cameo.

I used Echo Park paper and Papertrey Ink ribbon.
I cut the cameo out at 2".
I used a die from My Creative Time to stamp the sentiment on. The sentiment is from Close To My Heart stamp set called Sweet Moments.
I also used the same stamp set to stamp the inside of the card.
It is one of the stamp sets that coordinates with the Art Philosophy cartridge.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I will see you all back here tomorrow with another project!
