My new toy

For Christmas this year I received a new "toy," a Cricut®Machine.  I have been playing with it and cutting out some things that will eventually be titles on pages in some of my scrapbooks.  But the one fun thing I did was an elaborate cut out about coffee which I framed.   Here is the result. I will probably do one about tea next.  I have the "cut" file already.  Maybe a fun thing to show on a future Tea Cup Tuesday post.
I know the picture shows up terrible but I hope you get the idea.  I should have taken the picture before I framed it behind glass and sealed the back.  But I hope you get the idea.  I now have it hanging on the wall in my office.  I used an old frame I found in my workshop.  I may use some gold Rub and Buff on it eventually to make it look better.
    I got the "cut file" on Etsy from
She has some other ones I may get in the future.  I really like her work.
For those of you not familiar with the Cricut®Machine here is a link to let you learn.

  Be warned. You may want to get one for your self.  I also have a die cut machine.  But sometimes  I can't find a die that has the look I want.   And the cuts you get from other people don't cost nearly as much as a die might.
Anyway.... This is my first big attempt.  I will try to show more things I have done as time goes on. 

Be sure to some back on Tuesday for Tea Cup Tuesday.  I have a craft project I am showing that incorporates a broken teacup.

Teacup Tuesday

It is time again for Tea Cup Tuesday.  Here is one of my favorite teacup and saucer sets. It is called ANGELA.    It is Royal Albert of course!!!!!

I hope you enjoyed the tea cup I have selected today.   Come back to visit on Saturday to see what I am crafting and next Tuesday for teacups and crafts.

  I will be joining with the following Tea Parties and blog parties on the days they publish.   Some are on different days of the week so my listings will show up then.  And some may not be available every week.  Be sure to check.

Hope you will visit them too.
