Check Out My Holiday Bag Workshop

Woo Hoo!  I think I am getting my mojo back.  I have spent the past few days learning how to use my new Cricut Expressions 2 and Gypsy.  I must admit that I am a Cricut Novice.  I had not purchased one because I sell Close to My Heart and we did not use Cricut.  We cut our stamped images with SCISSORS!  LOL  Imagine my surprise and consternation when at our Close to My Heart Convention it was announced that we had our very own Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge with stamp sets that are designed to be used with it!

Then it got worse.  They they announced that we have tons of stamp sets in our Fall/Winter Catalog that can also be cut with our Art Philosophy Cartridge.  Well I am not stupid!  I saw the writing on the wall, went back to my room and ordered a Cricut Expressions 2.  So after feeling very overwhelmed I have jumped onboard and I am now a Cricut Lover.  I especially love our Art Philosophy Cartridge.  The shapes are awesome and can be used for cards, boxes, bags, scrapbook pages or anything you want to use it on.  Click here to see our Cricut Art Philosophy Collection.  If you do not have a Close to My Heart Consultant, you can even order it there, and I will greatly appreciate it!  Winking smile

So on to my Holiday bag workshop. I have three of the “bags” made. Check back later for two more that I will have designed and posted by next week.

Here are some closeups:



This super adorable Santa Gift bag was designed by the uber-talented fellow CTMH Consultant, Mandy Leahy and it was cut from the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.

And this very cool Halloween purse was designed by Vicki Wizniuk, a fellow very talented CTMH Consultant.

Finally, this one is all mine!  I cut this out with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge as well.  Isn’t it versatile?  It is large enough to hold candy or a gift card or both!
