I am SO glad I did! LOL Because I don't know when the cartridges will be on sale again and I simply couldn't wait. Provocraft came out with several new Cricut cartridges last week and the minute I laid eyes on the cover of one, I knew it was a must have for me. Joann's sale on the cartridges ends on Saturday, so I've been on the lookout for these new cartridges. Today I checked the Michaels in Brighton. Nope, they weren't out. Thought I was out of luck for sure. But a salesperson (I thought) walked passed me, said good morning and asked if I was finding what I was looking for. I said no, actually, and explained what I wanted. She said she had one (they only got the one in, and they ordered 10) in the back room. Then I asked if she'd honor Joann's sale price. She said she'd have to double-check with the other manager (ohhh, how lucky, a manager stopped me). I always have the latest ads tucked in my purse and when she asked to see it, I was able to whip that baby right out. So, yes, they did honor Joann's sale price! I was giddy!
Wanna see why I was so gosh darn happy? Here you go:
Squeeeeeeeeeeal! Sorry, I just couldn't help myself. Now you see why this is a must have for me (and there are other butterflies, flowers, medallions and lots of cool stuff). LOL These are from the new Florals Embellished cartridge. I had SO much fun cutting and putting these together. And they are big. These are cut at 3 inches but the wing span on that first one is around 5 inches. I didn't even get to the point of putting them onto a card, I just wanted so see what they looked like. For the most part, I followed the colors shown in the booklet with CTMH cardstock. Usually I try to ink the edges before I put them together. Today I was just too darn impatient for that step and I think they still look pretty good. Fun, fun, fun.
I noticed there was a silhouette function. Hmmmm...they looked cool in the booklet, so I cut each one to see what they looked like in real life. Sigh...love, love, love them!
So, Valentine's stuff got put on the back burner for the moment. Hope you forgive the delay. *Ü*
