Cricut at CHA

I had an awesome time for the 2nd day in a row at the Cricut booth at CHA. Pictured here with me is Brandon, he creates some of the cartridges for Cricut. He designed the new Giant flowers cartridge, and designed this Make N Take. I loved this peony, and when I asked him to sign my board he became very modest and shy......LOL, this was funny and his co-worker Becky was all giggles about it. I hope he see's my post and has a great laugh about it.

Now lets talk about the project. It was a wainscoting panel we were working on. We used the Giant Flowers cartridge and cut the peony at 4 1/2" to make this huge 8" flower.....how awesome is that? before putting the peony together, I used the glue gun and adhered the ends of the petals together. I then used a small spray bottle with water to wet the patels and curl the edges to give it that 3 dimensional look.  I put all the flowers petals together around the base, again using the glue gun. I added the leaves and ribbon on the panel and then continued to glue peony to the board. 

I can't wait to hang this in my future scrapbook room......and I am also looking forward to see what Brandon's next cartridge will be.
