I'd Rather Be Crafting...

This is my 2nd post for today. Be sure to scroll down to see my Creative Critterz Imaginations Design Team post, featuring another one of Emma's stamp sets!


When I saw this sentiment from My Creative Time's "Paper Princess" Stamp Set, it made me think of all those times when we're at work and would much rather be crafting. The idea came to me to make a little business woman with her briefcase in one hand, but her Gypsy in the other. I thought this Peachy Keen face just said it all.


I was so excited to try out the Gypsy cut from my new Cricut Circle cartridge, Cricut Everyday. It's so cute, and my son even knew what it was (although he was embarrassed to admit it)! Notice the little Stickles nail polish on our business woman. :-)


For my sentiment tag, I just used my Gypsy to group together a triangle on top of a rectangle at a size that would fit my sentiment. Here is a look at the full "Paper Princess" Stamp Set.
