The Stockings Were Hung…


Every year we make a bit deal over the hanging of our Christmas Stockings! Here is the layout that I did that was inspired by the challenge over at Bitten By The Bug! I used Cricut Design Studio and the following Cricut cartridges: Plantin Schoolbook, Christmas Cheer and Cuttin Up. I used papers from K&Company, Bazzill and Prism. The glitter is provided by Doodlebug Sugar Coating. The Rhinestones are by Prima as well as the flowers. The brads are generic (Can’t remember who made them or where I purchased them!

Clock and Time Book

It is time to think about New Year’s Crafts and Journals. What will you keep note of this past year?  Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. I created a book with the New Year in mind. I will use this as a journaling book for the next few weeks as I write and doodle about 2011.

I used my Cuttlebug and the Clockworks Embossing Folders to pull the details of this journaling book together. Once it is complete I will bind it on my YourStory. Here’s to the New Year.

Happy crafting xoxo Cyndi aka Lovely Lula

The Cricut Mini Has Arrived

Cyndi of Lovely Lula here to share that the new Cricut Mini has arrived! Just in time for the Holidays. This little cutie is perfect for those of you who work in the medium of visual art journaling, like I do. It connects right to the Cricut Craft Room.

INTRODUCING
Cricut Mini™
Cricut Mini is a small, lightweight, ultra-portable way to make almost anything you want – out of many different types of materials, including thick and thin paper, fabric, vinyl, magnetic material, craft foil, and lots more. With Cricut Mini, it’s easier than ever to make projects and be more creative!
  • Small, portable, and lightweight for ultra space savings.
  • Works with any computer PC or MAC with a standard wireless or wired Internet connection.
  • Simply plug it in, turn it on, connect to Cricut Craft Room – the online design tool where you can see and design with every Cricut cartridge – and start making projects..
  • Cuts up to 8.5” x 12” paper and other materials. Cut small shapes and fonts from ¼” to larger cuts up to 11½”!


Here are where the cuts came from:

I used a green sharpie for the hand written part and a permanent glue stick to hold all the cuts in place. All of the paper is from Bazzill Basics.

I am excited to create my visual art journaling pages using this new little cutie. To see more of my Visual Art Journaling pages visit my Flickr page, all my visual art journaling pages are 8.5 x 11. Happy crafting xoxo Cyndi aka Lovely Lula

Cricut Circle Event in Greenville, SC Layout and Calling Cards!

Hi, it’s Kendra here this Wednesday with a couple of projects to show you in relation to the Cricut Circle Event in Greenville South Carolina this past weekend!  So, while I was there, I created a really cool layout to pass around and have everyone sign as a momento!  (I am still waiting on my photo to arrive to finish the layout off… Sorry!)

The layout and Calling Cards were created using the brand new Go Canada! Cricut Cartridge and the Everyday Cricut Cricut Cartridge.

I also used the Cricut Circle Cuttlebug Embossing Folder

Here are my finished cards to share with you all!  I love how they turned out!

Kendra and Mike Wigton from Provo Craft!
