Hello, Lovely

First things first.  I'm not sure if this is a question or a rant.
The Disney Classics cartridge from Cricut.
I've tried several of the images and wind up getting really frustrated with them, my Expression, myself, and everything around me....Kind of the butterfly effect of crafting irritation.  Some of the pieces are so small insanely microscopic!  I realize that I just need to do larger cuts to increase the size of the smallest components.  But how flippin' big do you need to cut them so you can even see them?  The images are super cute; it just drives me nuts that I'm not able to use them.  Does anyone have any suggestions, a list of minimum sizes recommended, hints, clues?  I'll be happy to accept any help offered!

I feel so much better.
Now, with all of that being said, I'd like to talk about a card I made using you know what.  Yep, I took a chance on the Disney Classics cart again today.  I decided to keep it as simple as possible so I used the adorable Flower from "Bambi."
Only Walt could have made a skunk so stinkin' cute.
(Couldn't resist.)

I removed the contours from the white layer in Craft Room because I have a problem making my layers match perfectly and those little lines only make that more obvious.  That issue is all me.  It has nothing to do with which cart I'm using.  I'm just messy.

The roses on the card were made using Flower Shoppe and their edges were inked with Distress Ink.  That great sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.  The pearls and ribbons were from my stash.

You can find this card at the following challenges:

Really Reasonable Ribbons -- Pink & brown ribbons
Outlawz -- Wednesday sketch

Jellypark Challenges -- Cuddly wuddly

Sorry for the vent.  But, my husband will be happy I have this outlet to get that off of my chest before he gets home.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend and, as always, would love to hear your comments.


  1. Some of the cartridges are very frustrating to say the least@ I find I have to cut most of them at least 5 inches. You did a fantastic job and so glad you entered at Exploring Cricut.

  2. So love your 'Flower'! You did a fabulous job! I tend to cut my Disney cuts to fit a 6x6 card so the pieces will be bigger. Love those flowers, too. Thank you so very much for joining our 'Disney Dreaming' challenge at Exploring Cricut!!!! :)

  3. I love Flower! What a great card! Beautiful flowers from one of my favorite carts. Thank you for joining our 'Disney Dreaming' challenge at Exploring Cricut.

  4. Feel free to vent all you want Roberta, we all need to let off steam at certain times LOL
    I have already viewed this card over at Outlawz Challenges and thought it was pretty special.
    Kind wishes from England, lakeslady aka Joan

  5. I commented on this over at Outlawz and now I have the answer to my question -- it's definitely Disney. Cute, cute card, and if all it takes is a tiny rant to get this kind of marvelous creation from you, then rant all you want. :-D
