Felt Fun & the Cricut Mini!

Have you heard the news?  The Cricut Mini is here!!!  The Cricut Mini is here!!!
It debuted on HSN today!  Hopefully you had time to check it out and add it to your Christmas gift list!  LOL!!!  The Mini works in conjunction with the Cricut Craft Room and will seriously open up a whole new crafting experience for all levels of crafters!!!

I was lucky enough to get to work with it and the exclusive cartridge included with the HSN bundle called Cricut Font & Basic Shapes!  It has a wonderful font that comes in both a regular and stretch version, wonderful titles and a huge array of funky and geometric shapes.  I promise you that you are sure to find something that you can create with for just about any type of project on this cartridge!  Here is a layout and a card that I created using it that were shared earlier today on the Cricut Blog.  Make sure you stop by the Cricut Blog to check out some gorgeous 3D ornaments created by Jana Eubank using the Cricut Craft Room exclusive cartridge called 3D Ornaments.

Now look closely!  Yes, the Cricut Mini even cuts felt.  The felt I used is called Friendly Felt and is stiffened and even more cool...it is glittered!!!  I used masking tape to hold the it in place around the edge and it cut like a dream through the felt!






And here is the card I created. I also used the Imagine Floral Emporium Cartridge for my patterned papers!



So, what do you think?  Do you want a Cricut Mini now too?!!!!  
If you are excited about the Cricut Mini here are some cute blinkies you can use for your blog, etc.




I hope you enjoyed seeing these projects and thanks for stopping by!

HAPPY HUGS!
