Loads of Inspiration Coming Your Way!!!

Teaming up with Maya Road was so much fun last week, that we decided to do it again, this time with Cricut Circle. For those of you that may not know what a team up is, it's when two companies work together and combine their products to create something unique. So, for this team up, Bella was given Cricut product and Cricut was given Bella product. Then the designers of both companies get to work. One of the great benefits of being a Bella Blvd Artista is all the wonderful product you receive to create with, especially the product you wouldn't typically buy or use. Not that I don't like the product, but sometimes I just don't know what to do with it.

I have to admit, I have never used a Cricut before this assignment, but I've always loved what other people have created with it. It always seemed a little too putzy for me. For this team up, I used the Cricut Expression, the embossing folders for the Cuttlebug, and a quilling tool. I had so much fun, and I was amazed at just how simple it was to use. I have to say, my personal favorite was the embossing folders. I couldn't believe how it changed the whole look of the cardstock and how easy and reasonable this technique was.

All of the Artista's had many projects to create for this team up - and all of them will be featured on the Bella Blog all this week, thru Saturday. If you feel like it, stop by the Cricut site here and see what their design team has been up to. Be sure you come back and check out my creations!

Day One: Check out this super adorable 4th of July Wand that Sheri Feypel made - she's so creative!
