Luckily you can never have enough earrings....LOL I'm having too much fun!!!
The coffee cups are from Imagine-Better together cut at 1", butterflies Imagine more cut @ 1" and the Icecream cones from Imagine-Kates kitchen cut @1.5".
Snoopy was cut with the Silhouette from a  jpeg cut at 1.5" and Mickey is also a jpeg cut @1.5"
As I've said in a previous post these earrings have a front and back and are coated with modge podge
*FYI: The earrings are made out of plain cardstock ( I use 8.5 x 11 Wausau Bright White 65# from Office Depot)

a potted plant farewell....

A co-worker is leaving so I made her a potted plant farewell.
The flower pot is made with the silhouette (the file is in the store) and the flowers were done with: Gypsy Wanderings, George and Basic Shapes and Plantin Schoolbook. The edges were inked and bling was added.

Tweet earrings

Never thought my paper crafting would turn into jewelry. I'm having a BLAST with earrings....
Using the silhouette and a digi. I sized them down to 1.5".  I made fronts and backs...I have short hair, you can see my earrings coming and going...LOL!!! Added a thin layer of modge podge to protect them.
When using modge podge you have to be QUICK! ONE SWIPE is all it takes, otherwise you'll smear the ink.
So I wouldn't poke a hole in their head I got some scratch pieces of cs and poked a 1/8" hole then a 1/4" over it and glued it between the fronts and backs.

heres my Tweet earrings
(yes, the feet on the back are a brighter orange, I had to use a marker to touch them up)

While I was at it..
Heres my "gloomy" Eeyore earrings....ROTFLOL

HA HA!! I'm an equal opportunity crafter..I've made earrings with the cricut Imagine and now the Silhouette. I LOVE THEM BOTH!!!
