Just a note flower card made using the E2 Cricut Essentials cartridge.

 Hello, everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. I know I did. It was busy, but nice. In fact, I did not even have time this weekend to make projects for this week. I had to do a little scramble scramble yesterday morning to get some projects together to post on both blogs this week.

I have seen the paper flowers that PC made and sent out to a few lucky bloggers. I thought that Sue over at PC did such a good job making them, so her flowers are the inspiration for this card that I made using the Cricut Essentials cartridge that is on the new E2.

The paper was printed out using my Imagine and the Lori's Garden cartridge. It was super easy and so much cheaper that buying paper. I printed out 12 sheets and it costs $1.50(because the white stack of paper is $5.00 for 40 sheets). Now that is not counting in the ink, but I have no idea how many sheets it will actually print out. My experience is that it prints far more sheets that PC says, so I think you definitely get your money worth!
I cut 5 scallop circles out at 3" using the Cricut Essentials cartridge. Then I scored 4 of them and folded them into quarters. I adhered them to the left over scalloped circle and added another scallop that I made using a scallop punch. Then added a button.
This stamp is from Papertrey Ink.
 I have another project posted on my other blog. Click here to check it out ==> Courtney Lane Designs

We had a question in the comments yesterday asking when we would be showing projects using the Cricut Expression 2 embedded cartridges.

Good news!

Below are 20 different projects we made using the Just A Note, Cricut American Alphabet, Cricut Decals and Cricut Essentials cartridges.  We have shown these here on Everyday Cricut and on our personal blogs, Courtney Lane Designs and Obsessed with Scrapbooking!

Hope you enjoy!
