i DO have more fun things to show y’all from the Meow Cricut Lite Cartridge so today i wanted to show you a LO i did:

 i had printed these pictures out before ProveCraft sent me the Meow cartridge but as soon as i saw it and the “like herding cats” phrase i knew i would be using it for these pics.  these are pics of pez, our friend’s across the street who are 3 & 5, and our next door neighbor who is 6.  coraling them when we get together is often like herding cats!

I wanted the cuts to have more of a fun, whimsical look rather than realistic so i chose these bright papers from K&Co & doodled on some stitching like stuffed animal cats…

this cartridge does NOT have a shadow feature which i am SO used to using.  so instead i set the top layer off center slightly on the base layer which gave a bit of a shadow effect peaking out on two sides.  the faux stitching further sets it apart.

here is the last kitty – aren’t these just two CUTE!  i really love this cart more & more the more i play with it!

now if only i can be patient and wait for the rest to arrive at one of the walmarts by me – i think ours will be closer to the July 1 release date *sob*

i will have another project up for you tomorrow plus a pezza way video (i think i have created a monster!)

see ya monday!

better blog siggy

  1. What great layouts!! love the colors. The kitty is adorable!!

  2. I love the cats. Very cute. I went to our Wal-Mart and
    they have all the new ones but the price of $39.00
    plus tax. I think I will just wait for a new one to
    come out that does a little more. I really think
    they are all cute. Hope they come down in price

  3. Great layout. My brother always says that about herding cats, so I think it’s funny they have a cut for that.

    Can you please email me too. I didn’t get my June issue & I emailed both you & & didn’t get a response.
