KCC - To Die For Blog Hop

Welcome to the Krazy Crafting Crew's October blog hop: To "Die" For. Many crafters today have die cutting machines and we thought it would be fun to let them show off some of the work they do with their machines and tell us which machine they own. I can guarantee you will have a fun time looking at all their creations and if you're in the mood for a new die cutting machine, they're work might sway you on which one to buy.

I'm your hostess for this hop and in honor of Breast Cancer Awerness Month I am giving away PINK things. A 6 x 6 pad of paper with shades of pink from My Mind's Eye called "Memorable" and some pink flowers and finally some pink half pearls and rhinestones from Miriam's Crafting Supplies
If you like the prize and want to get in on the drawing, just hop through the blogs and leave comments. I love it when we show support for those participating. :)
 Now let the fun begin...

I have two die cutting machines: Cricut and an eClips and I love them both. I bought the eClips when Cricut first announced that you weren't going to be able to use Sure Cuts a Lot. I panicked because I have so many svg files as well as cartridges so when I got a good deal on an eClips, I bought it.

I have a Gypsy to use with my Cricut and store most of my cartridges on it. I really love it and don't know what I'm going to do if it stops working, another reason for the eClips.

I did two project: one using a cartridge and one my own svg that I designed. I used my eClips for both projects. I wanted to do something with my Cricut but I ran out of week.

First is the project using a cartridge. I used the Basic Shape cartridge to make this bridal shower door hanger.

I also made this pumpkin and leaves wall hanging using my own design. I love the red and orange half pearls from Miriam's Crafting Supplies.
