Robotz Cricut Happy Birthday Gears Card

No, I didn’t put that on all wonky.  I cut the houndstooth patterned paper at an angle. (That means it’s wonky ON PURPOSE. 😀 LOL!)

When this cartridge came out I had to have it RIGHT AWAY!!  That was me being crazy, because I haven’t used it to make a robot until now.  When will I learn?  (Uh…never.)  This is a cute cart, but I’ve found I don’t have a lot of need to make robots.  Weird.  Who knew?  LOL.  I did use the font to make my nephew a word book.  I was just thinking … maybe I should make a little 3D robot army.  This cart has a 3D selection of robots.  Maybe I could train them to clean the house and bring me stuff.  Like lunch…and … more Cricut cartridges. 😀

In this awe inspiring photo…I welded some gears together. 😛  There are some gears on the Robotz cart, but they are suprisingly hard to find.  Isn’t that weird?  I figured I’d find different shaped gears on every page.  That would be a “no”.  I found these on page 57 and only 2 out of that bunch were welded.  What up, Provo Craft?  Anyway, I welded them with my Gypsy.  I had plans for a more involved card, but…plans are made to be creatively adjusted? crushed? bent? broken?  nah, that’s not it … well, you get the point.

Yes, I own paper that is called Joy Ride.

I LOVE that white ink from Stampin’ Up.  It doesn’t dry fast though.  The numbers paper is from Cosmo Cricut Cricket (gosh, I almost forgot how to spell cricket, LOL!).  I love using those Honeybee scissors.  They are so sharp and do a great a job!  You NEED a Zig 2 Way Glue pen…well, not really, but I do use them all the time.  They’re really helpful!  The ribbon is from PaperTreyInk.com.  The card sentiment is from Stampin’ Up “Think Happy Thoughts” stamp set.

I am now thinking that my artistic decision to make the houndstooth paper sloped just looks like I can’t line anything up.  Oh well, live and learn!

Now I can say, I’ve made a robot with my cartridge.  Time to move on to finishing a Mother’s Day card…fast!  😀

  1. This card is SO CUTE! I love the robot and the idea to weld gears is absolutely great. Thanks for the idea. I DO have many.,many pix that can be scrapped with this cart so it really was a NEED vs. a want. Weelll, it might be hard to convince DD of that, but that’s why I worked~to afford cartridges when I want/need them. Now, to get the scraproom back together so that I can use the cart…

    1. Thanks Dori and Flowerdisco!
      I look forward to seeing what you both make with Robotz! I am going to make a 3D one soon. I think that’s a cool feature! 😀
