My new toy arrived

I am so excited, My Cricut Expression arrived on Monday and I just love it. I only had the personal cricut before this and I cannot believe the difference in the size. I am so excited using it to make some cards this evening, But yesterday I used it to create a card for an order.

I used Make the Cut to create the file for Dopey and then cut it on my cricut. The card and the mtc file can be found below.

Some Layered frames for MTC.

I was playing about Last Night and have created some Layered frames similar to the star frame used in my fathers Day cards. They take three simple cuts and look really effective when they are together. You can find them below along with a picture of how they look.

 I hope that you like them. If you create anything using these frames please post back so that I can see.

Homer Simpson card and MTC file.

Here is a Birthday Card I created for my childrens Grandad. He loves the Simpsons in particular Homer, so I wanted to use him on the card. This is how the finished card turned out. I used Make the cut to create the card using a colouring page that I found on the Internet.
If you would like it the Make the cut file for this card can be found here. please remember that all these files are for Personal Use Only.

My Fathers Day cards are finally finished.

Here are some finally finished Fathers Day Cards. I created the "Route 66" card using "Cliff's Clubhouse Cards" from svg cuts. I love this set of files as the cards are so easy to create.

The star cards were created using Make the cut and Basic shapes. I did scraplift the idea from a project I spotted on everyday cricut and I used the Nursery Rhymes cartridge to create the words and the "Over the Moon" phrase.
Finally the Everton Card was created using My Craft Studio. I created a decoupage sheet and a Backing paper sheet of badges to match. 
I think that they all turned out nice. I will definitely use the star again I created again as it is so simple to make and looks really sweet. It is also an easy card to duplicate. Here is another one I created in Slightly different colours.

Classic Car Birthday Card

Here is a card I made using Cliffs Clubhouse Cards from I think it turned out pretty well. I decided to make an easel card rather than the shaped card. It is for my Father In Laws 52nd Birthday. Hopefully he will like it.

I also used Make the Cut and Classic Car font from Also I am entering this into the crafty little place challenge.

My New table cover

I got a gorgeous Table cloth from Dunhelm Mill and I love the colours in It . It matches in my craft room perfectly so I thought That I would post a piccy and let you see.

I also got the three little cake tins and they are filled with my acrylic stamps too. I just want to eat them.

More Make the cut goodies

I have been playing again. I can't seem to drag myself away from this programme at the minute. I have made some pretty cute nested shapes and I thought that I would share them with you.

The coloured circles are the centres for the co-ordinated scalloped shapes. I hope that makes sense. 

I also made these shapes too I think they turned out pretty cute. 

Make the Cut Borders

I watched Scrappydew's tutorial on making borders and decided to have a play this morning. I hope that you like them. 

please also become a follower I plan on making more make the cut files so you know where to find me.

Here is my first Fathers Day card of the year. I have made it for my little boy to give to his Daddy on Fathers Day. I am also going to enter it into My Pink Stamper's challenge to win a Cricut Expression. Fingers crossed. I think that the robot is super cute, he is from a clipart kit I purchased from scrapping Doodles. I think it turned out nice. the stamp is from Inkadinkado.
