Good morning everyone! So my hubby surprised me this weekend with a wonderfully amazing present:
Yep a Cricut Expression! (it was over half off and comes with 3 cartridges - amazing deal - way to go Hubs) of course once he told me I had to call around trying to find it since everyone is pretty much sold out.
Alas I found one and drove like a maniac to pick it up (yes those of you who know me know that means I went the speed limit!) As soon as I got home I had to try it right away and got to work on this project:
Making our hall closet door more festive!
This is the door before I got a hold of it!
I started by cutting out the letters in size 11.5
This much larger cutting size is why I wanted an Expression over the Cricut Create I currently share with my sister. But oh goodness there are about 90 unique features I love which are new for this version of the Cricut! Me and this baby we are going to be working up a storm with the holidays coming!
Then I scrounged up a bag of .99 silk leaves from Target (from last year)
And cut some leaves out of leaf and green paper again using my cricut!
Voila! This is the view from my seat at the kitchen table - so purty!
And the centerpiece of our dining room table!
My hubby really probably bought me the cricut so I would get into the fall spirit - this is his favorite time of year and he could not wait for the house to be all decorated. The girls are really into it as well and just keep hugging me saying "mama we love the decorations it's so fun in here"!
What's your favorite time of year?
