My Mother's Day gift

On Mother's Day my family always says that I get to do whatever I want, and they know that means I will probably spend some time scrapbooking, so they were smart and got me two Cricut Cartridges for my gift.  I now have Sweet Treats and Paisley in my collection.

I love that both of them have a card function, so many of the images can be turned right into cards with one push of a button!  One that I noticed in the Sweet Treats cartridge cuts a ice cream cone shape plus it's mirror image, hinged on one side.  Fold on the hinge and you have an ice cream cone shaped card.  It is that easy!

And they both have so many great words and phrases too.  Since I do not have the Gypsy, if I want to create words and phrases I have to cut out all of the individual letters and line them up just right.  One of the phases in the Paisley cartridge is "Shop til you drop" . . . a phrase I say often!  Another one is "Sassy", and anyone that knows me knows I like that word too.

I can't wait to start sharing some of my creations with my new Cricut Cartridges with all of you.  If any of you already have these cartridges, and have links to your creations with them, please share them here.
