Happy Valentine's Day!

Have you ever sat down and looked through the handbook for just one of your Cricut cartridges, and then tried to come up with as many project ideas as you could that would JUST use that ONE cartridge and any of the stamp sets you already own?

That is kind of the basis for the theme of this week. I will ONLY be using cuts from the Sampler Cricut cartridge, and combining them with stamps from the K Andrew Designs stamp sets. Why? So many people look at a stamp set and see a "theme" and think that if they don't have a Cricut cartridge that fits that "theme" then they don't have a use for that stamp set . . . WRONG! This week several of the Getting Crickey Design Team Members are going to show you how many project ideas are out there from just one cartridge.

For my cartridge I am using the Sampler Cricut cartridge, and I wanted to do something today that also said "Valentine's Day" . . .



I cut the image of the cityscape from some red paper with a red swirl on it, then I used some black and white glitter paper for the background and stamped the sentiment "Let's paint the town red" from the K Andrew Fashionable Friends stamp set.

I hope you have a great Valentine's Day!

  5. This is a very pretty card. I love the shades of black and silver with the red cityscape. They really help make the red pop.
