Click It With Cricut




Made for Each Other
Don't you just love how you can find a Cricut cartridge for any Imaginisce project you are working on? No matter what the project you can find the perfect cut to pair up and give it that special touch.

In the spirit of Spring which is quickly approaching, Keely and I (Pinky) decided to shake off the winter blues and spruce things up with some Garden Party and our Cricut Cartridges!

Keely created this very spring inspired dress form using the following Cricut cartridges:
Sentimentals, Storybook, and George & Basic Shapes
Doesn't it make you want to don that pretty spring dress and run through a field of flowers? Ok maybe it's just me, but I am completely in awe!
