Cricut Earrings

I am not a jewellery maker, so I pushed myself out of my comfort zone by making these earrings:

 Supplies Used:
Cricut Expression
Cricut Circle Exclusive Everyday Cartridge
Lever back earring posts
Headpin Finding
Crystal bead
Silver toned round bead
Halcraft 20mm Peridot shell bead
Sparkly Silver Outdoor Vinyl

I think this turned out kind of cute and would be fun to wear to a Cricut Circle meet-up.

Happy Valentine's Day Charger Plate

We've taken down all of our Christmas decorations and the house looked so bare.  Of course, that means I have to put up something for St. Valentine's Day and I decided to decorate another charger plate.

I picked up this charger plate  (very sparkly - I like sparkly) from Wal-Mart back in mid-December.  The silvery-white vinyl  is scraps that I got from a generous local sign shop and the pink vinyl is Cricut brand.  I used the Lyrical Letter's cartridge for "Valentine's" and the Base Camp cartridge for "Happy" and "DAY"(welded with Cricut CraftRoom).  The Indie Art cartridge was used for the hearts.

Well, it may not do that much for the "bareness", but it's a start.  Thanks for looking.
