Things That Just Happen

I'm playing with all the cool functions that Cricut Expressions has that the original Cricut did not. One of the them is Fit to page. So I wanted to cut this bag. It's called Tall Ball as a bonus function on the Potpourri Basket cartridge. I selected 6" and Fit to page. No problem I got this great size bag to work with. Now you see those nice sized flowers? Those were also cut from the same cartridge. I selected 2" for the largest of the flowers and silly me did not turn off the Fit to Page function and you know what happened next? I got a 7 inch flower as the machine made the largest one it could using the 12x12 cardstock. LOL! Word of advise always turn off those special functions before moving on.

I would have loved to have this machine back in the 70's! This large flower just screams Flower Power!!! I could have cut them out of all different colors and had a great decked out room!!!! As it was my room when I was 13 was pretty funky anyway. Four of the walls were painted hot pink and one wall was painted turquoise and the trim was also done in turquoise. Of course I had a ton of David Cassidy posters up. Oh my I'm showing my age now!!!!

Moving on. I'm happy with the bag I made. Base is Mellow Moss, flower colors, Bordering Blue, More Mustard, So Saffron, and Always Artichoke leaves. Butterfly is cut from Chocolate Chip. Veins on the leaves were added with a marker.

Late thank you to Connie for sending me this adorable froggy dressed up in a Tu-Tu!!!! Thanks Connie. Just love it!!!!
