Ckc Manchester On Friday all day!!!

This will be my first time going to the creating keepsakes convention. I joined the ckc club and I got a free pass to the convention and free class voucher so I decided I would take advantage of it. I am going to be a volunteer for four hours. I will get thitry dollars to spend at the ck booth. I cant wait to check out all the products and take a class. I will also be surrounded by people that have the same interest as me. Actually for me it's an addiction. My mom is going to keep my little one overnight so I will have no worries and in no hurry to get home. I can't wait. I will tell you all about it when I get back!

Cricut vs fruit rollup

Ok so I got this idea the other watching robyns video. She cut out
shapes with something not so edible using the cricut cake. So I
wondered if I could cut a fruit rollup with my cricut expression. I
went to the dollar tree and bought 7 boxes with 10 in each box. I
needed plenty of them to work with! They are yummy kiwi strawberry
too. So last night I scrubbed off the adhesive from one of my old
mats. I put the fruit rollup on the mat. I moved the rubber roller
things in the machine to the sides so they don't get yucky. I used my
deep cut blade set at 6 full pressure. It cut like a dream!! I just
need to check that my blade didn't get yucky. Oh another thing, I used
goo gone to get the sticky off the mat.

I just love this card I made. It was for my sons 12th bday. Zoobaloo
lion and grass, lyrical letters happy birthday, giraffe sticker,
animal print ribbon, wild for you stamp. I heat embossed the grass and
the starburst thing on the happy birthday.

I will probably add a few bugs and some more bling.

I made all the flowers with Walk in my garden cricut cartridge. I heat embossed white on the rose. This metal basket is something i got for christmas with a bundle of bath stuff. The bottom had a big piece of foam in it when i got it. So i just came across it the other day and thought how cool it would be to put flowers in it. I covered the foam with green tissue paper. I used wooden skewers for the stems. Yes, I do have these in my craft I cut strips of green patterned paper and glued it around the skewer. I Used my quilling kit to make the curly leaves on the stems. Then I cut the flowers with my gypsy to fit in the 6" area. The rose I did a black shadow because of the challenge but the others have no shadow. I just cut the flowers; base and shift.
