I've had a lot of people ask if the new Chomas Creations adjustable holders work in the Cricut original, Create, Expression and Imagine and the answer is YES! Of course you are going to have to find shorter pens, markers, even crayons or pencils, but they will work! Here is one of the Crayola Pip Squeak Skinnies in the Expression. They are a bit longer, so you will need to tighten the marker in the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder, put the popcycle stick under where it will go into the blade holder, then tilt the marker a bit to get it under the lip of the Cricut and adjust the height of the marker so the tip is resting on the popcycle stick, this will give you the right height.
When using the Pip Squeaks, because they are a bit longer then the Chomas Creations mini gel pens, your design will have to remain 2 inches to the right of the lip I've shown below, it is on the left hand side of the Expression machine.
And here is the finished card! I used Christmas Cheer for the Merry Christmas sentiment and the card shape.
I used the Chomas Creations embossing tip to score the fold in the card.
I did use Design Studio to do this card. By adding the embossing rectangle on one layer, and the actual card cut on another, you can easily score any card! I have another tutorial on scoring a card with the Chomas Creations embossing tip here... score tutorial
