The Merry Christmas was a stamp that I had from many years ago and used pens to color the red and green and brown, then used a scallop punch and colored the edges. The final touch was Stickles to the snowflakes and the berries and branch.

Using the same color scheme with the polka dot paper, I created this Thanks card. The work Thanks was cut from page 71, font feature. cut @ 1.5" and then ran it through the swiss dots folder. The flower was on page 56 and cut @ 3.5". Added a ribbon on the bottom and then stickled the flowers
These three deer (1 is mirrored image)were also from the Cindy Loo cartridge on page 61. Used the shadow feature and cut out of the three colors because I couldn't decide how I wanted them to look on a card.

Welded the blackout feature to a rectangle from Plantinschool book. The center scroll work is the border feature of this cartridge that I also changed the size to fit the middle section.
Mounted it with foam squares, then stamped a Happy Birthday which is mounted to solid pink and yellow papers. Added a few rhinestones to the centers. I was originally was going to put the deer that I made on this card but decided that I wanted to keep the cuts showing.

I don't always have the paper illustrated or the supplies so I am trying to use what I have on hand without going and buying more stuff for a project
I did cut out the flower (page 52) in the size of 3.5" that was in the instructions. The lower case hi was cut at 1 3/8". I have been using the Gypsy to design the cards that I make so that I know things will fit in the space that I have on the card stock.
Used a punch for the blue border and cut the leaves(branch) from page 48. Added the stones to the card as a finishing touch.

Welded with a rectangle from Plantin Schoolbook(size A2 card)4.25" x 5.5", I took the cake on page 70 of the booklet, (shift and jumbo highlighted)and cut out of white card stock. The pink was cut freehand since there is no other option for this cake. Cut Dark pink candles and glued them on the white. Used Stickles to highlight the flame.Computer printed the white square and cut. The Happy Birthday was cut from Zooballo.

One of my favorite cartridges is the "Wild Card" Cards are set up to be able to cut shaped cards without too much effort and I like the look of them.
On page 56 of the handbook is this flower card. In order to cut the envelopes to go with the cards, you have to use a special size so it fits on the 12" x 12" mat. You have to the cut envelope first and use the "fit to Page" feature on the Expression. The largest size that you are able to cut on this card is 4 3/4" x 4 3/4". you can cut other sizes smaller than this or is you use your own envelope, you can cut a larger size.
The first thing that I did is cut the card from yellow card stock. I did use the Cuttlebug and with the Swiss Dots folder for just the flower to embellish. I kept the size at 4 3/4" and cut out the white flower from the "Frame" feature. Next I cut 3 green leaves from the "Icon" feature with the same size. On the inside of the card, I then pasted them on the rectangle

This is my version of the pinwheel card on page 51 of the Wild Card handbook. On the Fit to page, the largest card that you are able to cut is 6.5" to fit in the envelope that was made for it with the shift key. I did not use the envelope but it was 6.5".
I did stamp the images and rotate to get the next image on the pinwheel and kept turning until they were full. When doing this, you have to make sure the stamps are not too big for the opening.
Next I cut the frame out and mounted in the opening. Not sure why the holes were cut out all over the front of the card but the next one that I would do is cut the blackout feature and that would eliminate those cuts. The flower pot was cut from Walk In My Garden and run through the distressed stripes folder from the Cuttlebug. Added a strip of paper for the stem and cut out the leaves.
The "Happy Birthday" was cut from Zooballo Zoo.

I just bought this embossing folder and had to try it on some thing. It is an A 2 size card. I try to have card stock cut so that I can grab something and make something quick if the need arises.

On my Gypsy I chose the lunch box shape. I did weld together two shadow features with one reversed in the black card stock. Made the size to fit into a A 2 envelope. Saved the height size and then cut the black and white paper for the overlay.
Out of white card stock, I then cut out the layer feature and ran it through the Cuttlebug (Tiny Mosaic folder).
Next I cut the same layer feature out of red card stock and then trimmed as seen in the picture with scissors and added Stickles to the apple and a black pen to highlight the lettering.On the inside of the card, I just cut various words from different cartridges and also Stickled them. Because of the black card stock in order to sign the card we had to use a white pen.

The flowers were from Gypsy Wanderings and were cut @ 1.22" and were rotated on each cut flower.
The leaves were from Walk In My Garden and cut @1.39 x .48 " and also rotated for each of the cuts.
The Egg shape was cut from Doodlecharms and has to be a separate cut because the flowers and leaves extend over the border.The size was 6.14 x 18.16".
The circles were from Plantin Schoolbook and were cut from .26" and .48" to be used as fillers.
This was my first cut and I couldn't just let it go to waste so I cut out the purple paper and glued it on the front folded paper and then trimmed to leave the egg shape. Glued the green leaves in the cutout section after I ran them through the Cuttlebug. Stickled the leaves and Happy Easter and added the gems to the center part.

Newest card that I just love! Has things that have been favorites of mine which is gingham, newest border punch and Swiss dots.
Made this card using Doodlecharms:
For the bunny cut @ 3.5" with the dark pink as the shadow feature
Chalked the ears the added Stickles for the glitz. Eyes and nose are brads added before the shadow was glued on to the back.
Added the pink bow after gluing to a 4.25 x 5.5" square, run through the Cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder, punched the corners with a Martha Stewart corner punch.
In the set of punches was also the punch for a straight border which I used for the gingham paper cut at 7.5 x 5". Because of the size of the paper, I needed to add the stripes to the outer edge to cover the uneven edges from the punch.
The size of the card finished was 5.25 x 7.5" which is larger than my usual size of A 2.

I had gotten a cut file from the Cricut message board and this person designed this dress box from cartridges that I already owned and welded the file. The original design is on the cartridge "Tie the Knot"which I do not have. Eventually I will be making boxes such as this for my daughter, soon I hope. I did run the dress through the Cuttlebug with the swirls folder which adds another element to this cut. Added stones to the top and a flower that I had on the waistband with a ribbon. You untie the ribbon and there is enough room to add mints or some other small item. I think it is very clever how she did design it.

I had the checked ribbon and wove it through the cut holes. Added a oval shape of pink polka dot paper. The bunny is from Winter Woodlands put through the cuttle but with the swirls pattern, then added Stickles on the swirls. for the nose and mouth I used small stones.
