Cricut Experiments

I'm having so much fun playing around with my new Cricut Lite cartridges! (Thanks, Mom!) I used two different ones for these two layouts. For this first one, I used the Bloom cartridge. I LOVED the trees on this one...they are just so cute! I realized I forgot to emboss the trunk AFTER I adhered the they got embossed, too :) There are tons of cute flowers and stems on this cart, too...I just want to cut them all out now! I misted the background on this one. I wanted to keep the colors soft.

I also used Bloom on this one...the big it! I used the Live Simply cartridge for the adorable raccoon and hedgehog. There are so many cute animals on there! I had no plan for this page. I just wanted to cut the animals, and then I decided to create some kind of landscape I went to glimmer misting. Then I figured, "why not make some grass?" Then I inked some light clouds and stickled them (it's hard to see in the picture). Then I was in the mood to add a sun...and some stitching...then I realized I needed to throw the pictures in there somewhere! I'd call this one an true "whimsical, glue-as-you-go" layout...haha! (Obviously I cut the animals first...since they are way too big for the page...but who cares? I still think it's cut!!)
