All of these are made with the built-in cartridges on the new, soon to be released, Cricut Expression 2: Anniversary Edition.... also known as the E2. This machine will debut on HSN on April 26, 2011. I had so much fun working with this machine! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! It cuts like a dream and all the new features are so fun. I love the paper settings, tool settings, LCD screen.... everything... even the little light that shines on the cut path as it's cutting!
Here's what I've been making while learning the ins and outs of this new machine! Did I tell you I love the E2!?! Again, please excuse the poor quality pictures. I'll try to make more stuff when I get back and get better pictures.
The built in cartridges include Cricut Essentials, Just A Note (Cosmo Cricket), Cricut American Alphabet, and Cricut Decals. These are four fabulous cartridges, built in to the machine, always ready to go. And though there isn't a 'real' cartridge, you do get handbooks for each.
The tag above and the card below are from Cricut American Alphabet.
This picture below is from Cricut Decals. I left the blue backing film on the acetate for protection from fingerprints and scratches while being shipped. This would be fun to hang with a suction cup from your car window when going to crops or your craft room window. There's a few more "on board" decals to choose from on this cartridge.
This card is cut from the Cricut Essentials cartridge. Love this cartridge and know it will be a go-to cartridge all the time for the fun shapes and images.
and another from the Cricut Essentials cartridge. After I completed the card, I couldn't decide which way was up!
This card is from the Just A Note cartridge by Cosmo Cricket! FUN cartridge. Lots of adorable animals and other images.
This is a really poor picture but I wanted to show you that the Just A Note cartridge has lots of cards on it similar to this tri-fold, using various images - this sample using the banner tri-fold card.
Thanks for stopping by... that's not all though... Provo Craft has generously given me a Lori's Garden cartridge and a pair of ink cartridges for the Imagine to give away to a couple of my readers.
For a chance to win the Imagine Lori's Garden cartridge or the pair of color and black ink cartridges for the Imagine, leave a comment telling me:

As usual, spread the word and come back and comment again with the link for another chance. I'll choose winners on Tuesday, April 12th.
