~Hello Cricut Crazy Monday + New Video for the i-rock!~

I was just going to post a video today.
I made a video yesterday of little tips for the i-rock
that I have picked up along the way.

But then last night my boys came into my craft
room and they discovered mommy's toy...LOL
the CRICUT! hahaha
It was so funny!!!!
So I thought first today I would share what they asked me
to make them and what happened.

This is the Hello Kitty card I made yesterday.
I did not share the information yesterday because
I was throwing a SURPRISE Hello kitty party for a gf.
It was great and the Hello Kitty cartridge was awesome for it!
Ok on to the boys...
So Justice comes in and he says "Momma when are you going
to make me something to go into my binder to make it special?"
I said "Right now, what do you want?"
"I want you to use your Cricut and make this Robot mom!"
hehehe, this is what he chose.
I know it is a basic Cricut cut but he was TICKLED!
I made it 8.5" so it covered the whole binder area.
They are only allowed white binders so this is so cool for him.
Not to be outdone my other son came in and said
"MOM what about me???" I said "Whatcha want hunny?"
"A BIG Beautiful BUTTERFLY Mom"
And that is what I made him LOL
I used my Core'dinations cardstock, my Helmar 450 quick dry,
and my Cricut Expression machine. The Give a Hoot cartridge
and the Robotz Cartridge for the Robot.
We had so much fun. What a great way to get the kids involved
in being creative, they were in awe of the machine!

Ok on to the video.
It's been a while since I made one and
I have 4 ready to go, I just need to finish them!
This one is for anyone who wants small quick tips for the
using the i-rock and the gems.

OKy doky that is it for me today!
I am off to craft, I have a special guest design spot
coming up!
~Happy Monday y'all~
~Thank you for stopping by, I do appreciate ya!~

What a great way to involve your children. Don't be surprised if you start getting orders from their friends and if they are enterprising boys, they are selling them :-) A kid at one of the elementary schools was selling Silly Bands for 50 cents each, the kids thought it was a bargain, and the kid was raking in money!!

Hey Pinky ...

I have your blog on my Google Reader so I check in everytime you post but I don't often leave comments .... sigh .... I have too much to get through every day ... BUT I watched your video on the i-Rock and I loved it!!!

And it was soooo cool to hear your voice here in South Africa ... like you were sitting next to me in my craft Room ... AWESOME ... you have a lovely accent ...

Anyway, thanks for the inspiration on your blog ...

Love, Tracy G
