soooo? whatcha' think? it's only 1/2 done...terry wants me to paint the window wall and the small wall behind the staircase. we're planning on getting different furniture for this living room but haven't found any yet and who knows if it will really happen. it looks really good in real life. or i guess that's just my opinion. my neighbors like it but you never know if their just being nice? in the back of their mind their really thinking, "holy crap, what were they thinking?" ha i ran out of paint, which is fine with me. so until i get more we'll live with the 2 walls being painted. i have some big projects coming in the mail so i'll be busy with those for a while.
a few of us from the creative xpress team had assignments last month using the new Cricut machine...we were given the green light to post those layouts in our galleries. here are 2 of mine...EVERYTHING you see on the layouts were created using this handy dandy machine. their amazing! it's like having instant embellishments at the push of a button! i need one! my favorite features of the machine are...
* the ability to cut your shapes/letters from 1"-5.5"
* i love how it has different settings to cut silhouettes or solid shapes/letters. like the flowers you see on my layout of lauren or the circles i have cut on my dad's layout.
* the cricut is super easy to operate!
for the layout of my dad i cut the tags (2 different sizes), #1, Dad, &, Papa and the circles all from the cricut. the word "papa" i used the "charm" feature. that creates a small loop at the top of each letter giving you the ability to adhere the letter by using a brad. so cute!
how cute would it be to cut out 5.5" flowers and use them as wall decor in the girls rooms. the possibilities are endless and just having this nifty machine sitting here at my disposal has been a real treat! i'm going to hate to send it back! if you're thinking of getting one, don't hesitate! i've never been one to have a lot of fussy tools or gadgets but this machine is so versatile it makes all of those other gadgets obsolete!
