Welcome everyone, today we are using the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge. If you didn't come from Erica's Blog please go back to check out the projects made by some of the other design team members.
I get a lot of my inspiration just browsing through ladies magazines that I pick up at the grocery store and I saw a cute little Thanksgiving decoration and decided to adapt it using my Cricut.
This inspiration came just in time for me try out the Cricut Craft Room Exclusive cartridge 3D Pinwheels. It's a digital download to the Cricut Craft Room software that just became available to everyone. This was my first time using CCR and when I saw the digital images, I purchased the 3D Pinwheels, selected my project and cut it out, all while in my pj's! How's that for convenience?
I cut the scalloped pinwheel at 6.25 using a double sided patterned paper 'Picadilly' from Basic Grey.
I found the cute little turkey on Create A Critter cart that I won from Erica awhile back, cut at 3" using Provo Craft Cardstock. I hand cut and added a buckle to the hat and gave him some google eyes.
Using a straight pin I inserted it above the turkey's nose and through the pinwheel then into the eraser end of a pencil.
I hope everyone had a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving!
