I am one of those personality types that when I get a good thing I want more and more and more of it. It doesn't matter if it is a good pack of Cream Horns, gorgeous paper, comfortable socks or heck even men! *okie thinks she might not want to go into that right now as it would take a whole notha blog to even begin to explain okie and the male species* Anyway I think I am going to have this problem with the Flower Shoppe cartridge!
I found two more of the chipboard purses that needed to be altered and wanted to get them done for my Girlfriend Christmas party as prizes. I picked out some papers and got them covered and then remembered I had the Flower Shoppe cartridge that I hadn't used yet. I have been wanting to try it but thought it was going to be very difficult to use and of course I didn't really look at the handbook *okie thinks instructions are for boys*. I went to Christina's blog, ya know Creations with Christina *okie would so hate Christina's butt for being uber talented if Christina wasn't such a sweetheart*, and of course she has the video CRICUT PROJECT FLOWER SHOP showing how to make the flowers. Well within 10 minutes I felt like I could be an expert flower maker!
This is the first flower I made and it was super super simple to do thanks to the video! You guys know me and my inking habit *okie thinks it is more like an addiction than a habit* so I had to ink the petals a little. I used a pearl brad for the flower center. I think Eyelet Outlet actually as some of these very pearl brads in their clearance section right now.
