Quilling and a new CM Cricut Cartridge
I just have a few quick things to share today. Saturday we had more water coming into our house. The ice and snow are so thick that when there is a bit of melting the water just finds the easiest path - unfortunately, that is into our kitchen and my husband's study. We also have a bit of seepage in my craftroom but my things are safe, at least for now. We actually had thunder and lightning - such crazy weather!
I received the pendant at the top of this post as a sample at CHA. The company was nominated for an innovation award for the use of quilling in jewelry. "Quilled Creations" is located in Penfield, New York, not far from where we used to live. Here is a LINK to their website. They have all sorts of products for quilling and beautiful kits. I particularly like the quilled Chess Set, the Quilt Block sampler kit, the adorable animal kits like Forest Buddies, and the Spiral Roses. They have tools, books and an extensive selection of papers. If I wasn't so tired of snow, I'd be a big fan of the Snowflakes kits as well!
There is a new Creative Memories Cricut Cartridge that will be available in March. I will be able to order one copy on the 15th of February so I can preview the cartridge and make some projects with it. The cartridge is called "Stork's Delivery" and it coordinates with two new Power Palette Additions from Creative Memories, "Fabulous Baby Girl" and "Rugged Baby Boy."
Here are a few images from the March/April brochure. I will be sure to share more information about the cartridge when I have it in hand. There does appear to be at least one font but it is very difficult to see in the small catalog image.
I hope to be able to do some crafting tomorrow - if the weather is cold enough the dripping should stop for a while! I've had a couple of reader requests for files and I'll be doing some test cuts of those - one was something I had already planned to try...
