For todays projects I wanted to make a Sweet Treat
for Easter.  My First project is from one of my favorite
cartridges Tags, Bags, Boxes & More. 

You can find the Triangle box on page 125. I wanted you
to be able to see the treats inside so, I cut it out with the 
window option on. The Triangle was cut with the fit to page 
option on. The carrot is 5 inches long and 3 inches wide. 
The green carrot top was cut out using the Accent Essentials
cartridge flower on page 41. I cut them out at 2", 2 1/2" & 3"
I added a little green Bling to the center of the green top and
I think the Orange Bling gives the carrot a little sometime 
extra to make it sparkle. 

For my second project I made a Easter Card using 4 
different cartridges.

The card base was cut using page 71 from Cindy Loo.
I cut it out at 5". The back ground was cut from the 
George and Basic Shapes cartridge at 4 1/2". I also
cut a light purple circle to go in the inside of the card.
The circle is fond on page 108. The Bunny is from the 
Create a Critter cartridge on page 26 and she was cut 
at 3".  I love how many layers she had to give her lots
of depth.  I pop dotted her to give her some lift off the 
card.  The grass is from the Paper Doll Dress up cartridge.
 I found the grass on page 78 and cut it 2 different times
at 5", 4" & 3". I chalked the edges of the grass to give it 
extra depth. "Here comes the Easter Bunny" stamp is an
old Studio G stamp I had and thought it fit the card.

Here is one last look at my two projects for today.
I hope you see that you can use Cricut cartridges 
for other projects than what they were intended for.

I hope you loved my Easter projects for todays Blog

"Hello, I am your newest follower.  I love the banner and the fact
that it is versatile enough to use it many times. With all the work
that goes into a banner I would hate the thought of it only being 
used for a few hours. I am your newest follower. My Cricut Craft 
Room Design Team Member."
