My First Project Post

I’ve recently purchased a Cricut Expression and LUV’ IT. I dream about all of the projects it will do and can’t wait to discover them. I find this new machine very challenging and search and hunt the web for blogs, video’s, message boards, etc. to help me “learn” this new machine. One of my favorite blogs with tutorials is The Pink Stamper. She has awesome tutorials and is very helpful in guiding us in learning my new buddy.


Anyhoo’s – I have a long way to go to master this machine but here is one of my first Cricut projects. My niece turned 10 recently and she loves to make cards and create doo dads. I found a lot of hole punches, stamps and scissors at Michael’s and Hobby Lobby so put this like tote together for her; the purpose of the tote is to keep all of her stuff organized and she can carry it from her room to the table, etc. What do you think? Here is a picture with some of the items inside….

Stamps & Stuff for Julie2

What I did:
The tote I found at Wal-Mart for $2.50, I decorated it with various peel and stick fun foam shapes. These were pre-cut when I bought them “pre-Cricut”. LOL – Yes, the Cricut can cut fun foam shapes too. Oh, I’m so excited. Anyhoo’s, I also personalized the top of the tote with here name and Stamps & Stuff. I also tied various ribbons around the handle to give it a “girlie” touch and waaaa laaa.
Also, the gift bag tag is made on my Cricut using the Tear Drop cartridge.
Fun, Fun, Fun! To my delight, my niece loves it. Ü
