Glimmer Mist Scrap Flowers

Hello everyone,

Here are some flowers i made last night with some scraps i use when i glimmer mist die cuts and other items. I always put the items i glimmer mist on some sort of scrap so that i don't waste any of the glimmer mist. That way when ever i need a scrap of paper or something it is already glimmer misted for me. I will have a video up tonight of the steps i take to create these specific flowers. I just think they are so cute, in my last mini i even used it as a pocket for tags. I love how grungy they are, as well as that you can personalize the colors. For these flowers i used my Cricut Expression and the French Manor Cartridge. You guys will laugh when you watch the video because i was lost without my gypsy. I hope they give us an update soon!!

Thanks for reading and let me know what you think about the flowers!!

French Manor Cricut Cartridge & Update

I just wanted to let everyone know how in love i am with this cartridge. I already have so many ideas for it, but i have not really cut anything out with it yet because i can't use my Gypsy for it. I am waiting for Provo Craft to give us an update, i am really hoping it will be sometime this week. I am currently working on a mini album of my husband and my son. I am using paper by Graphic 45 "A Proper Gentleman" collection (what a surprise LOL). I am having so much fun creating the mini, but i would like to incorporate French Manor cart in the mini. I need to be able to manipulate some of the images, so that is why i am waiting to make any cuts from the cartridge. It is so weird how i can not even use (or do not want to use LOL) my cricut without my Gypsy. Seriously, can you tell how much i love my Gypsy :)
