I have made some small gift bags that can be used for small sweet or precious treats or perhaps a gift card. 

I used the Best Friends cartridge, and the Snow Angel cartridge the gift bag is made from the Best Friends cartridge.  I used stickles and gems to sparkle up each bag.  These were so fun to do using my Cricut Imagine. 

Thanks for Hopping by my blog

Imagine gift card and bag

This one is really cute.  It is a card and a gift bag together.  I used the Best Friends cartridge I created the girl and the bag separately.  I made the flower by printing it in different sizes and stacking with pop dots. I used 2 buttons on the flower. The bag I colored with a different pattern than shown on the cart.  On the girl I added a small dowel to give her stability.  I added 2 flowers and a brad to her hair.  The sentiment is from Beyond Birthdays cart.  I put chocolates in the bag and tied with a ribbon.  I think she turned out sweet. 

JT Cartridge card

This was fun I used all the elements from the JT imagine cartridge using white card stock and black card stock for the shadow.  I did use the layer feature to create the 3 d elements and used pop dots.  The Happy Birthday sentiment was from Birthday Cake cartridge and I flood filled with pattern design from JT cartridge I use an orange jewel element for the eye of the dragon.  This was fun. 

Imagine projects

This is a Birthday card that I did for a friend.  Imagine project using the Best Friends Cartridge.

Welcome to Cricuting With Lisa

Hi Everyone,

I am just getting this going I have been wanting to start a blog for a long time.  I had just not figured out where to get started.  I have been creating since I was able to walk.  I came from a very creative family and have kept the tradition going in my family now.  I have 3 children well I don't think I can call them children anymore. My 2 daughters are all grown up and out of the house, my son is a senior in high school this year.   My darling hubby and I just celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary this past Friday. 

Creative wise I will try just about anything.  I sew, paint, stamp, ceramics, porcelain, and for the past few years I have been a Cricutaholic I have all things Cricut I just love everything that you can do with these babies.  They are so versatile and just when you think that is it there is something new or someone thinks of something else that you can do with these facinating tools.  I have the original Bug, Expression, Cake, and the new Imagine,  I also have the cuttlebug, Gypsy, Yourstory and my son has the Yudo.  Bunches of cartridges I need to take inventory I know I have over 50 I have lost count though.

Yes I think I might have a problem, but judging from the message boards and blogs out there I am not alone in this addiction. 
I have always said that it could be worse I don't gamble, run around or do drugs I have a glass of wine here or there.  Crafting is less expensive than therapy or any of the above mentioned addictions.  You can always find me I am either in my craft room, shopping for supplies or working. 

I am going to be displaying my projects here to share.  I look forward to hearing from you and seeing your things too.
