A TOUCH OF PINK
Welcome my crafting friends to the first volume of A Touch of Pink newsletter.
In this newsletter I hope to keep you up to date on what’s going on in the Scrap booking world as well as share lots of ideas, tips and tricks with you all along the way.
First off a little about myself for those of you who don’t know me. I am a mom to 4 boys and work part time. I have a love of scrap booking and crafting that is huge. It is my passion. I love helping others learn about it and talking about the Circut whenever I can. Just ask my hubby about that. Whenever I’m at the craft store I always end up talking to someone new about how wonderful the Circut is. Its funny now he just rolls his eyes and goes with the flow of it. If I could talk Cricut all day long and get paid I would be a very happy camper.!
The first thing I want to tell you about it is the new Expressions 2. I’m sure most of you have heard of and seen it by now with all the videos of CHA out there. I for one am very excited about this new machine. It is a combination of the Expressions that is out now and the Imagine in my opinion. In that we will be able to cut with the image cartridges from the Imagine in the new Expressions as well as use all of the ones we own already. The other big change is that you wont need a keypad overlay for it. It has a fully digital screen. You can find more information on this new machine on Face book at the Cricut official page. http://www.facebook.com/#!/OfficialCricut.There you will be able to see pictures of the new machine as well.
Here are some other sites where you can see it as well.
These sites should give you some more info about this fabulous machine. From what I have heard I believe it is set to debut on HSN in April. As I find out more about that I will keep you posted.
I would like to try to include a cartridge review for you every month if possible. This month it will be Create A Critter. I am in love with this cartridge. I love the images and the layers and the extras. You can visit my blog at lisasgreetingcards1.blogspot.com to see some of the cards I have made with the cart. Just look under labels for Create A Critter and then you will find them. If you own this cartridge and have made something with it please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post them on my blog for so that others can see them too.
Well I think that about sums up this first newsletter. If you have ideas or things you would like to see please forward them to the same email address above and I will do my best to cover them.

This is how it looks laid out my mat to cut.
This is how it looks laid out on my Gypsy
Create A Critter Cartridge
Embossing folder of Choice, I used Swiss dots
Ink for shading around the owl and card if desired
Fibers, Ribbon or Twine as accents on card
Stamps for sentiments
Sharpie Fine tip markers for adding doodling
White gel pen for adding doodling as well
I recommend a Gypsy or Design Studio as it makes
it easier to cut, but is not necessary
Pop dots or foam tape for dimension
Flowers and bling are optional
I made all my cuts at 3 inches for the standard size A2 card. I added lots of fibers and ribbon as accents. I also sprayed the owls with Design Master Silver glitter spray for that sparkle. The owls are up on pop dots for dimension. happy Sunday and Happy Scrappin.
