Welcome to Robin's Creative Cottage and the "Fantabulous Cricut Crawl"...
our version of a blog hop!
If you've come from visiting Penny at Light Whimsy, you're in the right place! If you've just happened to come across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start here at FCCB.
For our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, each Design Team member will be featuring a specific element related to using your Cricut. There will be a wide variety of techniques and elements that will be featured so make sure to check out each DT member's blog! There will be prizes along the way AND there will be a grand prize for the participant that incorporates the most featured elements on ONE project!!! How fun is that?
The element I've chose to feature for the crawl is "drawing" using your cricut machine.
I do know not everyone has the Cricut markers, or marker holders. However, If you do I hope you'll add drawing to your project for FCCB project. And if you don't just keep in mind that after reading my post you may want to add cricut drawing tools to your wish list. I had so much fun creating.
There are a few different drawing tools available, I honestly have not tried the Cricut markers, I own the mini sharpie and mini gel pen holders (right in the above photo) from Amy Chomas. Using sharpies are great for thick lines, but the gel pens are my favorite way of drawing, because images can be drawn quite small and still able to see each detail.
I created these cards using design studio, a cut file is available at the bottom of this post.
I used my mini black gel pen to draw the images, then cut the rectangle shape 5 1/4" x 4", thank you and shadow thank you. Using my paper trimmer I cut a rectangle 8 1/2" x 4 1/4" folded this in half makes a perfect A2 size card.
Rectangle is from "George and Basic Shapes", words and designs from "Storybook" cartridges.
I used pop-dots to pop the word off the page.The cut file has the word thank you, but you can add any wording you would like for these cards.
Now it's your turn! Use drawing tools using your Cricut on a project, and add your link -HERE at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
If you incorporate cricut drawing on your project you will be eligible to win a prize package from me!
