Cake Decorator's Dream Machine ~ The Red Cricut Cake Tutorial

I have been hearing a lot about the Cricut Cake and I am truly fascinated! Wow! A Cricut that can actually help me decorate a cake!! Really?! I could not fathom how it could possibly work!
Well, today I found a YOUtube video tutorial showing a short, simple demonstration of how it works...curiousity had a tight grip and I just had to watch it....
Here is the tutorial, if you're a "Curious George" like I am...

This is not my video, it's from another scrapbooker that loves her Cricut and is happy to show us all...I love my Cricut Expression and all of the paper creations it helps me design so I know a cake decorator would get tons of use out of this Cricut Cake....and it's red!!! Too cute!!

6x6 Close To My Heart accordian album for Dog Lovers - You Rock paper pak

When I sit down to start creating 'something' I never know where my imagination will take me. I started out with a plan to make a frilly, girly card using all blue hues with flowers and florishes...but this 6x6 dog-lover's accordian album is what I ended up making! CTMH's goldrush and outdoor denim is a far cry from what I mentally started out to make..too funny...does anyone else do that? I really would love to know.

Here are some pictures of my most recent creation. Thanks for taking a look and thanks in advance for your thoughts and comments left for me....I like knowing that you've stopped in so I can visit your blog. :-)

I did the scissor distressing technique on the edges of most of the white core cardstock. I love Close To My Heart's cardstock...LOVE IT!!
The paper tearing technique was used on most of the patterned CTMH B&T papers.

I hope you enjoyed your visit to My Scrappin' & Stampin' Den and maybe I even inspired an idea or two. Thanks for looking. I would love to read a comment left by you...comments actually charge my creative battery and motivates me to create more for you to see.
Again....thanks for dropping in here and taking a look around.
I need to get busy cutting paper and get some ink on my fingers....time for me to create!!
