Bear with me....

While the kiddos are home for the next two weeks I don't get much "adult interaction" so my blog is my voice so to speak, so bear with me for a bit and please don't feel like you have to comment on every post!!
I just had to share....I bought my Cricut Expression earlier in the year. I've been scared of it. It just sits there and taunts me every day. This week Hobby Lobby had a cartridge sale so I went and bought 2 new cartridges, because we know I'm obsessive about collecting things. LOL!
One of the cartridges I got was Paper Doll Dress Up. I got it with the intention of creating paper dolls for Belle using my scraps.
I am happy to report that today I made myself face my opponent and I made my first paper doll!!!


It's still a work in progress but Belle loved it so we're good. Now that I made one thing...maybe I'll continue to use this awesome machine instead of being intimidated by it!

She is super cute! Love the dress. :o) I have the machine, but haven't used it much... I like to stamp too much!

Great job Danni. I have had the original Cricut, never really used it. I messed up too much CS and DP and gave up. I am glad that you "dusted yours off", maybe it's time for Cricut projects.... :)

The princess is adorable.

Danni~
Don't be afraid of your Cricut :) It's a wonderful tool to have! I also have the Paper Doll Dress Up and I luv it! You can do various things with this cartridge and it can be used all year long.

My son was into Batman & Robin. I cut the superhero from the cartridge and computer generated my son's face. Pasted his face on the doll, added the mask and voila! It turned out way too cute!

Have a Merry Christmas Danni!

GREAT!!!! You did it! I have the original cricut and I have only used it a couple of times!! So - I so understand!!!! I am sure Belle is going to go wild as her collection of cuties grow!

Maria Matter said...

Good for you, you're going to have a bunch of fun I bet!

ChristineCreations said...

hee hee, well I bet you and your daughter will be having LOTS of fun over the Christmas vacation dressing up many paper dolls! So cute!

Kimberly S said...

Your little princess is super cute! Bet you feel great now that you've done a project with it! :)

Christine said...

I was always so worried about cutting to and I told myself (time and time again) it's only paper!!! Your not wasting much if you don't succede. I use printer paper a lot when I'm experimenting as well.

Blessings,
Christine

Sparkle said...

Yeah for using your Cricut! Mine has been sitting still packed up from when I moved, lol. Your paper doll is just darling and perfect for Belle.

Linda said...

Your paper doll is just the cutest! I'm sure your little girl can't wait for you to make more! I got my Cricut Create for Mother's Day this year and have only made one thing with it, so I can totally relate to your story! BTW, I found your blog through "1luvnmama" and I'm so glad I did! You've got some great creations and thanks so much for sharing them! Aloha, Linda

Yeah!!! Glad you got to use your Cricut! I'm sure Belle will love these paper dolls...how fun!

WOOHOO!!! Way to go Danni! You will LOVE it sooo much if you just let yourself get used to it. I can honestly say that there is hardly ever a day go by that I don't use my Expression for some type of cut. PPDU is one of my favorite carts. It has everything on it, including my very favorite cow. You will be amazed. Check out every little cut on that cart. Love your precious princess, Danni! She's adorable! Have fun exploring! hugs!

That is fantastic Danni! I'm the same way with things...holding off because I'm afraid. Anyway, have fun with your Cricut!

Susana M said...

CUTE!!!! This is so wonderful! I must look into doing something like this with my SIL for my nieces!

Shelly said...

Awww! She's so cute! I could have fun making paper dolls all day long if I had nothing else to do. I used to love paper dolls when I was little.

Have you ever visited The Pink Stamper blog?

She makes videos several times a week using her Cricut. My friends who have Cricuts tell me that they learn alot from her.

Philippa said...

This is cute as Danni. I just went to a market yesterday and found a lady selling these. I brought a whole heap to put on some cards and pages. I love them. So cute.

Karen Wilson said...

Way to go Danni!! Don't let that big machine scare you. You'll have SO much fun with it and it can do so many neat things. Once you get using it a little more, you'll find it's not intimidating at all. Love your paper doll! That's one that I don't have and keep looking at. Great job!

Pam S. said...

Danni - use it! you will LOVE it! My grandkids love making paper dolls. They get so creative, it's amazing what they create w/the "parts"! I just bought the newest paper doll cartridge for us for Christmas...hehe...along w/lots of other stuff! lol The possibilities are endless with it for everything! you're off to a great start!
