I Have A New Toy...

So about eight or nine months ago I bought my first Cricut machine. It was the Create and I loved it! Used it a whole bunch and pretty soon wondered why I put off picking one up for soooooooo long! :) When I got it I thought I'd never need the larger sized Expression as I just couldn't see myself using super large die-cuts... 6"x12" seemed pretty big at the time...well............

 I was wrong!

It's amazing just what this machine is capable of and before long I decided to upgrade. I found a great deal on a refurbished Expression for $100 here and spent the last couple of days playing around with and falling in love with the larger size! Here is one of the projects I made.

This little gift bag was cut with the Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge, and the stork/flowers/and circles were cut with the Stork's Delivery Cartridge by Creative Memories. The papers are a mixture of various Pebbles papers from their Ever After, New Arrival Girl, and Tree House lines. Cutting that bag out without the larger machine would have been impossible! I'm loving the possibilities that this introduces!

Thanks for letting me share my excitement! Enjoy your Tuesday!
