Cricut Crafty Clare (you are here)
To celebrate the blog hop, I am sharing a card I made with my Cricut Imagine (above) and the Audrey cartridge. It was inspired by another Etsy shop, whose link I have since lost. She makes jewelry with ribbons and beads, and I thought this look would be great for a card. So, I used my Tim Holtz Rosette die and put the beads in the valleys of the rosette. The Congrats is SRM stickers, I added some bridal button trim I inked in yellow, a button and a bow in crochet thread. I don't get to use my Imagine as much as I would like, so I keep it covered to keep the dust off the machine and my mats. All of my covers would add instant style to your crafting space and keep them dust free! You can find one just like the one below at my Etsy store and it's all on SALE! Everything is 30% off! Just use the coupon code HOTSALE, when you check out.
A little intro for me and my shops: I have two stores on Etsy: Scrapguild and Scrapincovers. Both carry dust covers for all types of digital covers which I design and make myself. Below you can see a Cricut Expression cover. I have a fashion design background and make my own patterns. Most of my orders are custom, so if you don't see a color, fabric or the machine cover you want, just drop me a note via the convo on Etsy or via my email link here. You can check my sold items for photos of dust covers for cutters such as Silhouette and Pazzles. I don't keep them in stock as demand is lower for these machines. I love custom orders! I also make scrap bags for the paper crafter or general crafter and these are my most popular item at crops! You can see more about my scrap bag and it's great features in this video on Youtube. I carry a few other embellishments and scrapping pieces as I make or find them along my creative journey.
