Playing in the Cricut Craft Room

I have been playing in the Cricut Craft Room and creating a few things.  It's still in beta and has some kinks to work through, but  I believe it's going to be an amazing tool once everything is ironed out and is rolled out to the general public. 

I made this invitation for my stepdaughter's upcoming bridal shower:

She is having a fall wedding and her colors are Eggplant, Harvest Orange and Brown.  I used the Imagine cart Imagine More Cards for the card (pg 14) and patterns from the Imagine cart Mystical Garden to fill it in.  The great thing about the Imagine is that you can fill in the card (or any other image) with any pattern from another cartridge or achieve any desired color by just filling in the RGB.  How cool is that?  I  wanted to add some 3-D flowers as well, but ran out of time and had to get them in the mail. 

As a side note:  DON'T add thick embellishments unless you plan on paying a lot in postage.  Even though the card was not very heavy, the knot in the ribbon was too thick.  The invitations were posted as small parcels and not as a regular envelope.


  1. You had me at eggplant and that delicious May Arts ribbon...your card is gorgeous!

  2. Thanks for the mailing tip. Your card is darling and the ribbon does look excellent, so pretty!!!


Thank you for leaving some love! I hope to see you back!
