Ooooh you are going to love this!!!!

I know, I know, I'm a big enabler, blah blah blah, hehe!  But when I get excited about something, I so can't help myself!  Now that is how I'm feeling right now about the Chomas Creations engraving tip (available for pre-order on the right hand side of my blog) and the Grafix 12x12 clear plastic sheets (.020 thickness, about as thick as chipboard).  These are thick like acrylic sheets and don't bend.  So I bought them a long time ago at Custom Crops here... clear plastic sheets to use with the mini Sharpie holder but never got around to it (hey 4 kids kinda suck time right out of you hehe).  And when me and the good ole' hubby decided on doing the engraving tips, I knew I had to give this material a try with it!  And can I just say it looked WAY more awesome then I ever thought possible????  Here is a close up of the lines I did, using my graph file I have here... graph file download using the Cricut and George.

By keeping the back cover (there is a thin sheet of blue protective cover on the front and back of the clear sheets), I added it to my Cricut mat.  I then replaced the blade holder with the Chomas Creations engraving tip, and using the max pressure and multi-cut of 2, I engraved the lines.  Then I used Boys Will Be Boys to do the title, and used the Hannah Montana star for all of the stars on the page.  I used pop dots to pop them on up!  Here is the page all done...

Again this stuff is hard to photograph, but I had big plans for it!  Being it is so strong, I added it to a frame on my wall, with nothing behind it!  Look how AWESOME this looks!  Don't mind me and all of my !!! but that is how I type when I get this excited lol!  So you will probably see them a lot on this blog, that is fair warning!

Now to do 3 more for my wall of pictures, so the other kids don't get jealous hehe!!
