Birthday gift bag made using the Cricut Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge.

Hello, everyone!

Today I have a project made using the Ribbons and Rosettes Cricut cartridge. It is currently on sale at Cricut.com for $39.99! This cartridge is one of my new favorites! Love that font!!

Most of my nieces have names that start with a 'K', so I think it is not a bad idea to have a gift bag on hand with that initial. This was super easy to make and I think which ever niece gets a gift in this bag will love it!
I got the white bags at JoAnn's.
I cut 4 rosettes out at 1 3/4" and 4 out at 1". The center doily was cut out at 1 3/4" and the 'k' was cut out at 1 3/4 ". Isn't that the cutest font ever!
I cut the leaves out at 2 3/4".
This tag was cut out at 3" and stamped using PTI stamps.
 Have a fabulous weekend!

November Specials:

November stamp of the month:







Holiday Wishes stamp set that is only $5 with a $25 stamp purchase.

When you place a minimum order of $25 in My Acrylix® stamp set starting today (until November 30th), you can purchase a new D-size Holiday Wishes stamp set for only $5! That’s significant savings off the full retail value of $17.95 US / $19.95 CAN. And here’s a bonus: many of the images in the set coordinate with our Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge for added cutting and stamping fun! 

So to break it down, 
-If you spend $50 you get the November stamp of the month (retails price of $17.95) for $5.
-If you spend $25 in stamps, you get the Holidays Wishes stamp set (retail price $17.95) for $5!
-These two offers can be combined. For example, if you spend $25 in stamps and an additional $25 on anything else in the catalog you will get both stamp sets for a total of $10 ($5 per set).
You save $25.90! Which means the stamps practically pay for themselves!

*note* You MUST add discounted stamps to shopping cart when prompted by the system during checkout. Stamps cannot be added after the sale is complete and finalized. Also, adding the stamps to your cart BEFORE being prompted by this system will result in being charged full price for promotional stamps.

That bag came out simply beautiful. I can't decide if I should buy that cart or not? I have the bone folder which makes rosettes and hundred punches that creates the eadges? So, can you tell me other than faster what the difference is I am between a rock and a hard place in deciding on that cart. more yes than no...lol lol. Can never have enough right? LOL Thanks.
