Going Out on A Limb Here....

There are 2 design team openings at My Pink Stamper and thought I would go out on a limb here and submit a bulletin board idea I have for Valentine's Day to be used in my family child care home.  I love the phrase "Hearts Will Fall" with the hearts falling off the tree.  I used the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge and cut my tree to 11 inches wide and 23 inches tall.  The tree I used had a center cut out that I removed using the hide contour feature on my Gypsy.  The hearts were cut from the Create A Critter cartridge at 3 1/2 inches. The wording is from Lyrical Letters welded on my Gypsy and cut also at 3 1/2 inches.  The cardstock is all from Joanne's open stock selection or from the Paper Company packs they carry.  This is the first ever I have submitted anything I have made with my Cricut or Gypsy so please be kind....


  1. That is really cute! A great example of how you can use the cricut/gypsy in the classroom.

  2. Good Luck with the design team challenge.
