Jimminy Cricut!!!!!

My little fella has arrived...............yay!!!
Well he arrived at the shop this morning and he is still there but Deb let me bring the shop one home for the weekend to play with and I will pick mine up on Tuesday when I am next at the shop.

Have to say that I am well impressed with it. I love the alphabet on the cartridge that comes with it and the basic shapes are fabulous for making both mats and layers and embellishments. The phrases will come in useful too although I would have preferred a Happy Birthday to Birthday Blessings.
Everything comes with a shadow option so you can get perfect layering every time.
So far I have cut thin paper such as that from the DCWV paper stacks, Basic Grey weight paper and Bazzill weight card with no problems apart from not setting the pressure dial correctly for the Bazzill which meant I didn't get a completely clean cut.Once you get the hang of setting the pressure though you are well away.

So here are a couple of cards I have put together..........shocking colours for me but the sun is shining this morning and it just made me feel like using something bright and cheerful.
I am already trying to decide which cartridge I shall go for next and I see they have bought out some new ones already including a Mickey Mouse font and a Disney images one.......just perfect for scrappers with Disney pages to scrap.
Well I'm off to play a bit more........blow the serious work for today.
Catch you later
