WIN with 'Round The World With CRI-Kits'

TUESDAY 8th JUNE 2010
0900


Welcome to day 2 of the Scrappy Go Lucky


'Round the World with CRI-Kits' Blog Hop....





Mandy has challenged us to come up with


something to do with our part of the world,


or a part of the world that is important to us....





Sadly, CRICUT have not allowed too much for


my parts of the world - Perth WA and Scotland,


I bought the Destinations cart and


was a wee bit disappointed.....




I read a wonderful suggestion on the Cricut


Message Board - for a cartridge for


each country/continent - I reckon they would go


down a treat - around the world.....





So, I have gone with the recent trip


hubby and I had to Hong Kong


- I LOVE Disney.....










Using Mickey and Friends cartridge


I have cut Mickey at 3".....









From Tinkerbell & Friends I cut Magical at 3"....




The border at the bottom with the basket


of apples is from Happily Ever After at 4".....




And the word Disney is from


Mickey and Friends at 3".....




The paper is Rouge de Garance 'Adele'


and Bazzill c/s.....





Now, to the wonderful CRI-Kits gel pens


- specially made for use in the Cricut.....





Here's one in action, the dark green pen


from the Reg & Neon set,


drawing bamboo from the Pagoda cartridge at 5.5".....






I thought I would stick with the orient


theme with the pens.....










A wee bit of green ribbon and a sentiment - voila.....










In action again, this time the red


metallic pen, drawing a vase of flowers


from the Pagoda cartridge.....

















This time I treated the drawing like a stamped image


and coloured it in, using Tombow


brush pens - no Copics here - you know


I'm not a card maker.





And a wee stamped image on the vase.





Beautiful Yuzen paper, wee bit of ribbon,


sentiment, done.....





Again in action (I could watch the Cricut draw all day,


so much more fun that just cutting!!!)





Using pastel pink from the Pastel

collection of pens


(sorry doesn't photograph too well).....





And the pastel blue, also from


the Pastels collection.....







Both Koi from the Pagoda cartridge.....




Sorry about the lighting, they are a


wee bit darker than the photo's show.....




More of the beautiful Yuzen papers,


flowers and sentiments.....







I have used Nestabilities for the


frames and sentiments.....














Wouldn't you just love to have a play


with these pens, including the holder,


if you need one,


well you can WIN a set of ten pens


(your choice which set)....




Here's how:-





Become a follower of this blog

But, that's not all.....





Mandy is giving away the four


latest release cartridges from CRICUT





Wall Decor & More

Freshly Picked





Mini Monsters





You need to follow this international Blog Hop


and collect the clues - once you have


solved the anagram you need to


e-mail the answer to Mandy at











by Friday 18th June when the winner


will be drawn at random.....











Here is my clue.....










Mandy started the Blog Hop yesterday over at









So you need to start there and


follow us through this week.....

the pens in action.....

Beautiful Disney layout, that 'magical' wording looks so delicate to cut.
I really love the look of these pens and the more I see people create with them the more I would love them. I think you did a grand job of the vase of flowers if you are not a card maker, your colouring is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Your SBPage is magical! I love it. I can just see a cartridge about Scotland. It would be beautiful and would have bagpipes. There are a lot of uses for bagpipes. My step son just graduated from law school and they were led in and out with men playing bagpipes.
I am so happy to be on this hop meeting all these new ladies who teach me more about my Cricut. I don't have the pens but now I see they are a must have. I love your cards.
Nice to meet you Jane,

nancy said...

Oh my the layout is adorable----very nicely done. The cards are beautiful---I have that cartridge-----I need to take a look at it again---TFS---Nancy

moknowsall said...

I don't have the Gypsy but do have DS and had similar "jumpy" results using the markers with DS. It just was unusable. Have to use straight Cricut. must be a delay in the connection between the computer and the expression. Like your pen work --- i have to do more -- good idea to use the pens on those very intricate cuts such as the balloon.... Hope to Win!!!

Thanks for showing how the different colors of CRI-Kits looks, I think the pastels are too light for me, but love the way your vase came out adding the copic markers.

Love the Disney layout too. Thanks for sharing!
