Friday Reader Spotlight!

Yay! I love Fridays! It's Friday Reader Spotlight (FRS) day and I get to show the wonderful creations that are made by  you, my dear blog readers!!

Usually for Friday Reader Spotlight, I will feature projects that used Make-the-Cut and Lettering Delights. In light of the recent PC-MTC settlement, I have made this week's FRS a very special edition. Not only will I be featuring projects made with Lettering Delights and Make-the-Cut, I am also going to show you some FANTASTIC work made with non-Cricut cutters.

Get ready to feast your eyes on today's projects, everyone! I have some really cool ones to show you today!

First up, I'd like to introduce Abbey Childress of . Check out this awesome card that she made with Lettering Delights' Good Company SVG set.

Here, I'll let Abbey introduce herself to you. :-)

"Hello bloggers!!  My name is Abbey Childress, but some of you may know me as 2ndhandstamps over at the Split Coast Stampers site.  I have been happily married for the past 8 years and we just welcomed our first baby to the world back in September of 2010.  I was introduced to the wonderful world of card making by a close friend back in 2008.  All my supplies starting out were second-hand courtesy of my Mom (hence the name 2ndhandstamps).  Between my full time job and…well…life…I have a limited amount of time to craft so most of my cards are clean and simple in design and take minutes to pull together.  I hope you enjoy my creations!!"


The next card is by Linda Vanorio. Linda used her Black Cat Cougar to make this super cute "Ahhh...Spring!" card.

This is what Linda says about her card:
"I made this card before I came to Florida to help my daughter and 10 month old granddaughter packup and move back to stay with us while her husband is reassigned to the Middle East (he is a Air Force Fighter Squadron Commander), we found out for the next 2 years. Brought it with me to show her what my new machine will do, even with a brand new operator.   Look how small some of the cuts are (bird beak), and they were right on.  It is a fantastic machine.

AHHHHH Spring!

Cut completely on my on my brand new 13" Oh Kitty (that's her name) Black Cat Cougar
Print and Cut completely except for the Card Base ( Can I say loud enough I LOVE PRINT & CUT) and LD and MTC makes it so easy

I just LOVE this next project by Sarah Frazier! Look at this basket! Open it up and you'll find the red glitter shoes that look exactly like Dorothy's! How cool is that?

To find out more about how and why Sarah made this, check out her post on the MTC forum here: Sarah Frazier's project.


The next three cards by Rene' Kretovics were made with her Gazelle. Aren't these cards darling? Rene made the butterfly card for her granddaughter's 3rd birthday! What a sweet grandma!

This hoodie by Maxine Richard is just too cool! She used Siser glow in the dark vinyl and a font called Disco Diva to make this hoodie. The fonts were cut with her cougar.

Maxine also decorated these 2 bags with heat-transfer vinyl. Don't they look awesome?


Last but not least, here are two cards that Inga Klaus has made with her Gazelle. Look at all the details in her flower pot card. Great work, Inga!
