Just a quick one...

to show you a layout I did with the Cricut machine. I cut the circle and flourish in both paper and chipboard (for a 3D effect) and cut the 'Baby' title on the Cricut also with my new favourite cartridge - 'Calligraphy'. I am really pleased with how this layout turned out. I used K & Co Que Serra Serra papers and diecut goldfish...isn't he cute?!

...and here's the cartridge...

I have just come home from Esperance where I taught a class to 25 ladies on Saturday night. The class went really well and I suspect this bunch may be interested in more scrapbooking judging by the amount of fun they had making their class project.

Also on Wednesday and Thursday the introductory classes to the Cricut went well...there were quite a few OOOHHHHs as I was showing a few little tricks I'd learnt on the machine which was a relief because I was wondering if most of my Cricut owners knew more about their machines than I do!
That's all for now. Hopefully I will have more to show this week. Have a great one!
