  1. Loved your soldier man and the use of the Cri-Kit gel pens. Also loved your little stamp on your expression .CUTE!!

  2. Love the tutorial. I have never tried the gel pens but I love how you can do fine details instead of trying to cut it. Will have to try!

  3. Joy,
    I love your soldier man. I have got to get me some of those pens. They seem like they would work so much better than the cricut markers.
    Thanks for sharing

  4. What a great project!! I had no idea how the pens worked in the cricut but now they are on my wish list – thanks for sharing!

  5. This is Nice, I have these pens and have yet to use them, think I will give them a try. Joy you made it look so easy. Thank you.

  6. Great project, still don’t have any of the pens, maybe one day

  7. What a cool project with so many applications available. I’m glad you showed the gel pens upclose. I wasn’t happy with the pens making the squiggly lines as the housing moved but I guess that is a universal problem. And it still looks great on yours! I’ll have to give my felt pens (as I don’t have the gel pens) another try with a less critical eye 🙂

  8. I need some fo those pens!

  9. Can’t spell today! I need some OF those pens.

  12. What a great project and I loved the little soldier man! TFS Susan

    Great soldier and so appropriate for today. I went to a veteran’s day program at my son’s school today and took plenty of pictures. This would be a great way to scrap it, thanks for sharing! I love your heart my bug stamp, that’s the first thing I saw in your video and thanks for telling me where it came from, it looks great! (Your stamps are on my wish list!)

  14. I have never tried the pens, ever. I may give it a try this weekend when I get more time to play with my expression and the pens. Thanks for your video and have a great day!

  31. Wow this sure draws better than it cuts at this size, a great cut for all those military projects. I have plenty of those to make with my eldest son serving and my youngest waiting to go in next September.

  32. Thanks for the quick tutorial on using the gel pens, I’m hoping some will be under the tree this year!

  33. the gel pens look awesome! i’m currently experimenting with crayola pip squeaks skinnies and pencil grips in my cricut and they work awesome!
