Cricut Artiste Valentine Gift Bag

Hello, friends!

Well, I have figured out why I have been so tired and did not feel like making a video. My Oncologist says I have chronic anemia and have to get an infusion tomorrow. Also, he is sending me to a Gastrointestinal doctor to see if the cause can be found. Good times, ladies. It feels like it is always something!

Now lets talk about something fun. I made this cute little Valentine gift bag which is just perfect for treats using the Close To My Heart Artiste cartridge

When you look down at the sizes, you will notice that the size for the bag is 12". I would just use fit to size on your Expression. If you cut this using an Explore, let me machine think you have a 12" x 24" mat, but you can put in your 12" x 12" mat. That is what I did. I often trick my machine like this bwahahaha! 

If you have an Explore, here is the file: Cricut Artiste Valentine Gift Bag

If you do not have an Explore, here are the sizes:
bag - 12"
rose - 4"
leaves - 1"
heart - 3 1/2"
'be mine' - 1 1/2"

You always care about us out here in the paper crafting world. You're too sweet. Get some rest and build up your body girlie and you'll be feeling stronger in no time. You're in my heart and prayers.
