Aloha, Take a Peek at the New Anniversary Expression 2 Machine!

Get ready and grab some coffee - we have a lot to cover today!

First off, the new Expression 2 Anniversary Machine!

Exciting times today!  The new Expression 2 (E2) Anniversary edition arrived yesterday and below, we have an "out of the box" video showing you what's what.  This machine will be debuting on April 26, 2011 on HSN and we have some fun things planned out for the launch!

Check out the video below (if you can't see it, click HERE):





I also have a project today using the new Luau Seasonal Mini cartridge.  Now, I have to apologize in advance because I have broken a little rule we have here at Everyday Cricut.  We try very hard to only use one or maybe two cartridges per project.  That way, it's not so overwhelming.  Well, I ended up using three cartridges on this 5" x 5" card.

Say what?  Yes, it's true.  I used the new Imagine Berries and Cream Colors and Patterns cartridge for the majority of the paper you see.  Only the flowers, "aloha" and ticket shape use Stampin Up! cardstock.  The ticket shape is from the Songbird cartridge.  And, of course, the leaves, flowers and "aloha" is from the Luau cartridge.


Now for some details:  I cut the pink flower at 2" and the yellow flower at 1-3/4". I pop up the center piece that came out of the large pink flower.  The leaves were cut at 1-3/4" and 1-1/4".  The Aloha was cut at 1-1/4".  The ticket shape was cut at 2-3/4", base and shadow.  I used one of the Asian inspired folders from the Cuttlebug Plum Blossom set to emboss the white ticket shape.


I popped up the ticket shape using pop dots.


Inside is finished off with some layered paper in a strip - also from Berries and Cream Imagine cartridge.

By the way, did you hear that today is the last day to get an Imagine at $299?  Head over to the Imagine Sale at cricut.com to pick yours up!

Be sure and check out Joy's and Melanie's personal blogs for more creative goodness at Obsessed with Scrapbooking and Courtney Lane Designs!

 Have a great day!

That is such a cute card!! I love the colors!!! I'm also super excited to learn more about the new Cricut, thanks for sharing the info!!!

xxsquigglesxx said...

I'm not sure how I feel about the cricut 2 yet. The only feature that is making me want to look into it more is that you can use the imagine cartridges on it, other than that I don't see any huge improvements that make me want to spend a lot of money to upgrade.

PinkSugar said...

Omg this is just too much. I so want all of these machines and can not wait for Jingers cake class. These machines woud so come in handy for my new business venture . Paper and party creations. With my husbands doors closing to hids franchise because of the ecomy and my diagnosis last year that left us pretty much broke because he would not leave my side. I feel so guilty. But God granted me with an awesome husband Iwould not trade the franchise for him. Thanks for all the opportunities to win. And all of your crafty godness.

Linda Vargas said...

I have been working for my company for 12 years and this is the first year they have given a bonus. My husband and I agreed it could be mine to use as I wanted. The bonus came in time to take advantage of the Imagine sale. I have also put money aside for the E2. I really wish I knew what they would sell it for. Loved the card. Now if I could figure out where to get the Imagine Berries and Cream Colors and Patterns cart. Cute video opening the box! Can't wait to see more...and what the price will be at HSN and what will be with the package.

bevyb said...

Very colorful and tropical. This would make a great invite for a summar luau party
