This card was made with my Cricut Explorer with Hunkydory papers. I love how this turned out, great for males and females birthday cards. I'm really loving the drawing function and added in a faux stitch by using a lot of hypens and rotating them for the two sides.

My husbads Mum and Step-Dad have fostered a boy for a few years now and today the adoption has gone through so I made this card. It's really hard to find a verse for this type of occasion so I ended up making one myself while drying my hair yesterday.
I used a free SVG from Sure Cuts A Lot for the puzzle, it was 3 x 3 but it wouldn't fit so I rearranged it to make 3 x 2. I used coredinations card stock for the puzzle. The text was written using the Cricut Explore.
Here is this years valentines card which I made for my husband. I cut a card blank using my Cricut Explore and used the writing feature to add the text at the same time. I then cut out a heart and covered it in red buttons (I've got a huge bag full!)
The card is quite heavy so has to be opened quite a lot to make it stand up.

Both my sister and I have Griffin Survivor iPhone cases as we always drop them (on the floor or in water) but they look boring and we wanted to jazz them up a bit. I used the silver vinyl from the Cricut Explore starter set and chose a Little Mermaid text design for mine from a Cricut cartridge, and my sister had a Tinkerbell silhouette I uploaded myself.
The designs stuck well for the first day but then started moving and letters started coming off mine, and the wand on Laura's Tinkerbell moved too. I think it's due to the material used for the phone case as it's not got a completely smooth surface. I think a stronger vinyl may work better or if I used the vinyl as a stencil and then painted through it. Vinyl sticks fine to other phone cases, I just think our cases that have a problem with the vinyl.
