Welcome!


YES! You are the right page! I just have a new name! :) After realizing that I do more than just scrapbooking, I've decided to change the name and will be changing the look.. I'd do a whole new blog but I'd hate to have to start all over.
Here you will find scrapbooking ideas. There's a ton of older posts that used the Cricut, but lately I haven't been using it much and well, my sewing machine is gaining more miles by the day.

My Purple Cricut!

I saw on the cricut board all these cool colored cricuts and well.. I wanted one too!
So I took the plung and painted mine purple and blue!


Here's the prep picture.. I had a heck of a time getting the rub-ons off from when I altered it before.. (see my Altered Cricut post for before pictures) so I just spray painted over the ones I couldn't get off..

And here it is done!

Painted and Done

Did you know.. that spray paint eats through foam?!
I found that out while doing my touch ups! - I even had 2 bowls, and it ate right through them! Tin or plastic works MUCH better!!

Very pretty. For me, I think it would be easier to paint my room to match the cricut and ATG gun, than to paint either one of those. You did a great job! hugs, eileen

That is awesome! I'm not that brave. Took me some time before I decided to paint my ATG (purple of course).

I LOVE it! I wish so much I was brave enough to paint mine!

I would paint it PURPLE too!

Nooo I couldn't find it in my heart to defile my cricut, I love my bug just the way it is. But yours looks lovely and i love purple/lilac too ;-)

Brave it is. 1? did you spray in the bowl and use a brush or sprayed. I know I would have problems covering the dials. That takes talent (covering non-linear edges) and you did awesome!
