I had a special request to make a quilled initial all in gold and creams. I wanted it to be glamorous yet classic. I found beautiful card stock in shades of gold. Some glittery, some shimmering, and some in a pearlescent quality with lots of different textures. I used my Cricut to cut out the lettering for the 50th and the date.

I was able to play around with my new Cricut and made some birthday invitations for a beach themed party. I love the way the sand and the surfboard turned out. I also love the double layered text! It made for a nice effect.

I managed to make two Valentine's Day quilled pieces in two very distinct and different techniques. The first was using my cricut to cut out the word love. (Did I mention my wonderful hubby gave me one for Christmas?) I did a double layer cut out and then quilled around the inner layer with a matching pink 1/8' strip. For the hearts, I just free handed cut and glued them on and then used the spiral technique to go around the edge of the hearts. I wanted to experiment more with the spiral technique, so I did...
