February Papertrey!
Coloring 101....

Need a boost?

We're playing the catch-up game around here today.  After a bit of neglect, the floors and toilets are officially scrubbed, the laundry's been tended to, and the rugs vaccumed.  Feels good to get things back in order again.  And I'm ready to get creating again tomorrow. 

So....feeling like you need a little creative boost?  Do you love your Cricut?  Then I have a little challenge for you today.  I've started teaching Cricut classes at A Walk Down Memory Lane and I am enjoying it SO much.  I love to share my creativity and this is just one more fun way to do that.  It's just awesome to see the ideas and concepts take hold in the ladies that come and I love seeing that little spark when something triggers a creative idea.  

On to the challenge...one thing that I get tons and tons of questions about during the class is the End Cap feature on the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  Now if you have the Cricut Expression, chances are you have this cartridge.  So, my challenge to you is to get out your Plantin Schoolbook handbook and take the time to figure out this feature (if you haven't already!!)...and then create something with it!!  :-)   I had my machine for about a year before I took the time to figure it out and I've found it to be a fun feature.  Here are a few things I created with it....

Some bookmarks for my kids...

A flash card set..

Wanna play?  I have no prize, it's just for kicks and creative giggles.  :-)  I'd love to see what you create...if you play along, leave a link in the comments of this post. 

And now, another Papertrey card, just because I can't resist.  We had a wedding to go to this weekend and I was dying to use the new Damask set on a wedding card.
