Leigh's Cherry Blossom Mer-Ween Blog Hop #1

   This is my first post for

Leigh has just released a new Print and Cutz collection for electronic Cutting Machines.

As I use my Cricut Maker almost every day I thought I would have a look at what was available.

I thought I would start with the Geisha with Parasol files.

I now have quite a few images ready to colour

 but in the meantime I thought I would try something else.
In this first post I am sharing a card...

  1. Black square card blank.
  2. Layer of Stampin Up paper.
  3. Image placed on black card mat, cut with the Cricut.
  4. Image drawn with a pen in the Cricut. I then had to cut it out.
  5. Sentiment is a sticker (PSX Designs for Creativity) placed on more Stampin Up paper and a black mat.

The only bit that didn't work as expected was the eyes so I coloured them in.

It will link this card to LeighSB's Linky


  1. She is beautiful in this lovely purple! I love the background paper, too! I am excited about the cut files cos I really like the black mat effect!

  2. Fabulous Susan, loved reading how you used Cherry Blossom Geisha Doll with your Cricket machine, she’s looking really smart on your background!
