I'm not sure if you've seen this or not but Provo Craft, the makers of The Original Cricut, The Cricut Expression, The Imagine (which I will be purchasing sometime after the holidays, next year at some point) and my other favorite is the Gypsy!!!
Long story short they have come out with this cartridge:
I just love this cartridge for making banners..... so cute!!! I highly reccomend this cartridge.
I'm going to make this a really quick post.... I have dinner going. If you really want to know the deets on the banner just leave me a comment and I'll get to it after the holiday. I made this to hang between our living room and dining room area so I wanted it to a double sided banner.
Here's the one side:
And here is the other side:
This is the side of the banner that shows into our Living room where our Christmas Tree is... see it's on.
Before I get to the pictures of the Christmas tree I'm going to show you a few close up shots of the banner so that you can see the details on it. I inked the edges of the letters. The letters were taken from the BlackLetter Cricut Cartridge. I also added some silver stickles to the letters... I think they came out so cute.
For the Holly Berries I used some very small Martha Stewart beads... these things are so cool but, boy do they roll everywhere!!!
Okay now here's the picture of our Christmas Tree for this year.
It's a real one BABY!!!! Don't mind the blue sheet that it's sitting on. I didn't want to take a chance with my good hardwood floors. This was just a real quick pic that I took. The better pictures are still on the camera.
Thank you so much for coming by today. I know how hectic it is with the Holidays just about in full swing.... I will be trying to post some more posts soon.
Thanks for much,
Be Creative today,
