Anna Griffin Card

Cricut Explore Machine
Anna's Flourish Cards and Embellishments Cartridge
Recollection Card Stock
Black Pen
This card uses the writing feature of the software. This cartridge has sentiments that can be written on the paper before it is cut out. Love the way this machine cuts the card stock. The design above the sentiment was also written and then I colored in parts of the design.

Wicked Halloween Card

Cricut Explore Machine
Creepy Critters digital cartridge
Cardstock: Recollections
This is a Make It Now Project and makes a standard A2 size card.
It will cut and score your card base for you but I just cut a black piece of card stock  
in half and scored it myself. Saves paper that way.  I didn't have silver glitter paper so I used
shiny silver paper instead. It goes behind the flourishes and the word wicked.

Turkeys with the Cricut Explore

Cricut Explore Machine
Simply Charmed Cartridge
Print and Cut feature
Yellow Card stock
Red Card Stock
Orange Cardstock
Turkey is cut 1.4 inches wide. I printed the turkey on white card stock and had the machine cut them out. 
I then cut out the shadow of the turkey with black card stock and then cut out the wings, beak and waddle and glued them on the turkey for a little dimension. This machine is very quiet and it cuts great. Nice clean cuts even the beak onthe turkey cut clean and they stayed on the mat when I peeled back the paper.
