6. Tracy (Tracy F) (2/3)

My projects will be:
giftbag, card, and layout

Just for sharing...

Here's my 1st attempt with making my own colors. The blue and yellow round scallopped pieces in the center were made with the Imagine.

30th Birthday By Tracy F

Here's my card with the twist. I used the Heritage cart for the fence and the tree.

Halloween Card By Tracy F

Here's my latest card. It doesn't fit the theme but thought I'd share it with you all. I used my Imagine to make the green paper and the 2 ovals.

Sympathy Card By Tracy F

Almost forgot to post this one here. I did the twist on this one with the flourishes.

Foxy By Tracy F

Just wanted to drop off one for sharing. The flourishes were all cut with the Home Decor cart or maybe it was the Home Accents cart. I can't remember. lol

Sweet By Tracy F

Dropping off my latest project.
I used my Imagine to print and cut the images onto iron-on transfer paper then ironed them onto the onsies. These are for my new dgd that is due mid Dec. or sooner.

Onsies By Tracy F

10. Toni (sopa1954) (3/3) = DONE!

Narrowing my choices was difficult. That is one impressive list of possibilities.

I'd like to try my hand at a frame, a giftbag and placecards for our Thanksgiving table.

I am lovin' this!

Project 1 finished and uploaded! Yipee!!

You and Me Frame By Sopa1954

I am posting the second of my 3 entries - Thanksgiving Placecards. The twist is there - turkeys.

Thanksgiving Placecards... By Sopa1954

Hi Ladies...

I can't begin to tell you how much I loved this challenge. I love using my Cricut and the project ideas really encouraged me to think outside a layout page. I also loved that I had 3 months to pull it together. Can't wait for the next round.

Here is my 3rd project....Gift Bag....

11. Cori (troylet) (3/3) = DONE!

I'm going to do a card, a layout and a tag. (And, knowing me, there's likely to be an inchie or two in there somewhere.)

Well, in the interest of sharing Cricut projects, here are two recent ones I did that I am particularly proud of. They don't qualify for this challenge, but I used the Cricut quite a bit for them.

Oh, deer! By Troylet

Rain By Troylet

Here's a fall-themed one for sharing. I am planning another layout for this challenge with the twists, but I am so happy with this one that I wanted to share it.

Fall Walk By Troylet


Here's my fall card -- with the twist (trees, fence)! I used the "My Community" cartridge for the trees and fence.

Fall Thank You Card By Troylet

Thanks for looking!
~Cori

Evening! Finished my second project, a tag. It's going on a set of monogrammed cards I made for a friend's birthday. I used George for both the tag and the flowers (the twist!). Anyway, here it is:

Happy Birthday Tag By Troylet

And here it is on the gift:

Set of Monogrammed Cards with Tag By Troylet

I've been using mine a ton. :-P Just wish I had more cartridges.

Here's my third, and final, project for this challenge, a layout! With the twist (flowers).

Hayride! - double By Troylet

Hello! I'm new to Cricuts and thought this challenge might be good for me to get better acquainted with it and what I can now do.

Is there room for a newbie?

I just started playing with home decor and story book today ........calligraphy and animal kingdom earlier this summer .......and Im still waiting to receive stamping


animal kingdom is fun and storybook is very versatile ...... but my fav is hard to determine

the new cricut released yesterday is fascinating .......but Im not sure worth the price ........but Im hoping now the price of expression will come down ......then I might upgrade!
