Happy Saturday with an exploding box!!

Hi everyone!! Well I am back this past week was wonderful! We had a great time in Webb Alabama seeing one of our favorite speakers!! If you have followed me for any length of time you know that my husband and I have been trying to conceive and God really spoke to us this past week and we are excited about the future. We believe that God is getting ready to bless us with a little one!! I will keep you posted on that!!
Now onto the last post. I had put up a blog poll for the E2 and the winning thing was question and answer but then I only got one question and here it is......
phillychick said... I just tried to cut a card from gypsy to E2 and it would not weld. Is it
possible to weld from gypsy to E2?

Thanks,

Dian Dabek Dian, I personally do not have a gypsy so I am not the expert on this question for the E2 however I searched around for you and found if you go over to Creations by Christina that she has a video series on connecting the gypsy to the E2!! Thanks Christina and Thanks Dian fo…

Here are the results of the Poll!!!

Good Morning everyone!!!! Ok so I put a poll up on the blog that was asking what you all would like to see about the E2 and the most requested thing was just having a question and answer about the E2.
So that is what we are going to do today!!!!!!!!!!!

What Questions do you have about the Expression 2? All you have to do is leave your questions in the comment section. I will leave this post up until tomorrow evening and then I will go through and answer all of the questions on the next post!!

I am sure a few videos will come out of this! LOL!!

One more thing, I will be out of town after Sat for several days so there will not be a new post after Saturday until late next week!!! We are going to see Kris Vallotton!!! yey we are so exciting he is the associate pastor out of Bethel Church in Redding CA. This church is doing amazing things in the Kingdom of God and he is doing the work that God has commissioned us to do!!!! I will tell you all about it when I get back!

E2 video: Using scraps of paper for layering!

Hey guys! Today’s tutorial is about using scraps of paper for making a layered image and putting the paper where is needs to be on the mat so that you can cut it all out at once. I hope you like it!!!

Getting those layers to line up on the E2

Here is another quick video!!!!

Video 3 of the E2 series: Image Placement!!

Hey Everyone here is another video. Todays video teaches you how to place your image any where on your mat!!  I use a piece of scrap paper and am able to put the blade exactly where I want it to cut.I wanted to cut this white decorative frame from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge for my butterfly to sit in the middle of.I had a scrap of paper from a mess up that I did and I wanted to use it for these frames!! After pressing a few buttons my E2 cut exactly where I wanted it to. Here is another Butterfly!!One of the things I didn’t mention in the video is that you can get even more precise by changing your setting to one quarter inch instead of one half an inch. I may post another quick video on that !! Enjoy and let me know how it works for you!!One of the things I didn’t mention in the video is that you can get even more precise by changing your setting to one quarter inch instead of one half an inch.

Layout using CTMH Art Philosophy!

Good Morning Bloggers!!!! It has been alittle while since I have posted! I have been enjoying my brother and his family lately. They recently just moved down from Upstate New York.  Moving from there to Easter Tennessee is a big move. It has been great spending time with them and it is also funny to see them experience the south! 
Well here is a quick layout that I did using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge. One of the things that attracted me to this cartridge is the differents backgrounds and borders that this cart has and of course the flowers!!! 
I used some scrap papers that I had and then coordinated some bazzill cardstock to go with it!!. I inked everything of course. I glimmer misted my flowers!! Then I tried my hand at some rubber stamps that I received from CTMH. Now I am new at stamping and I didn't do the greatest job but I was ok with the turn out!! It is hard to see here but I also used some stickles on the stamps and flowers!!
Is there anything that you would like to…
