Cricut Make and Greet - NEW Circut Products! - Flower Frame

I had alot of fun, yesterday, at the Cricut Make & Greet, it was so honor to attend. I met some great people, got to hang out with one of my crafting buddies Edna, and was introduced to another great product that Provo Craft created.

Cricut Mini
Have you ever wanted to go to a Crop and not have to transport your Cricut Expression & all your Cricut Cartridges with you? Well the product development team at Provo Craft has been listening. They produced the most portable, functionable, and affordable product so far. See all the features & benefits below, but here are my favorite...
-Small, Portable, Light Weight, & Affordable (they said the MRP is $119)
-Cuts 8 1/2" x 11"
-It Uses Cricut Craftroom online, on a laptop or computer to create the perfect project anywhere. Once your Cricut Cartridges are loaded on the Cricut Craftroom then no more switching those for each project.

Introducing the Cricut Mini™ Personal Electronic Cutter—an all-new machine that makes
home, school, business, craft, décor, party, and DIY projects simple and fun. The Cricut Mini™ machine is a small, lightweight, ultra-portable way to make almost anything you want out of many different types of materials, including thick and thin paper, fabric, vinyl, magnetic material, craft foil, and lots more. With the Cricut Mini™ machine, it’s easier than ever to make projects and be more creative!

• Simply plug it in, turn it on, connect to the Cricut Craft Room™ Application—the online design tool where you can see and design with the Cricut® cartridge library—and start making projects.

• Includes a cartridge port to link all your cartridges to the Cricut Craft Room™ Application.

• Cuts paper, cardstock, vinyl, magnetic material, fabric, craft foil, sticker paper, and lots more.

• Works with Windows and Mac computers with a standard wireless or wired Internet connection.

• Cuts on 8 ½" x 12" materials. Cut small shapes and fonts from ¼" up to 11 ½"!

• Small, portable, and lightweight for ultra space saving.

• Extremely precise and detailed cutting capability.

This new product defiantly caught my eye. It is so affordable it would make a gift for a friend or get one for yourself to craft at a crop or on vacation. This makes crafting anywhere much more practical.

Now for the flower frame I made yesterday....

This is a frame to go over my CHA badge. So I can by styling this week. It would also be a beautiful frame for any picture. This flower was so much fun to make.
The Flower Shoppe Cartridge is defiantly a must have. Also, the Fancy Frame Cartridge is great for making frames in your scrapbook pages or for pictures around the house.
