Gel Pens and your Cricut!!!!!!!!

Pin It

You have got to try gel pens in your cricut!!!!!  It is so much fun, and offers so many possibilities.  I just got my holder and pens in the mail today, so of course I had to try them out.  I didn't have anything in mind.  I just scrolled through some files I had, and picked a few to try out.  All of these are sized to fit an A2 card.  The tiny details are amazing!!!!!!  You can go much smaller with the pens than the blade.  Then you can have the cricut cut it out too!!!!  Can you tell I'm excited?  I plan to make cards out of these, which I will post.  I just wanted to share the fun.  Sorry the picture quality stinks.  I didn't bother to get any of my lights out.  I was in a hurry.  The color really pops on the black paper, and I can't believe it can do text that small.  This is going to be fun. :0)
The pen holder is available from a fellow crafter, Amy Chomas who along with her husband, designed and produced this fabulous tool.  (Click her name for the link)  It is very well made, and is much easier to insert in the cricut than the cricut blade.  They did a great job.  There is also a holder for mini sharpies, and an embossing blade.  I am going to have to try them as well!

Oh... and what color gel pen did you use? I don't have a mini white gel pen to go in the gel pen holder... do they make a mini white gel pen? Would you believe that I've had the holder AND 12 mini gel pens for 6 months and haven't used them... you've inspired me! :)

I used lavender on the black, blue on the brown, and red & green for the strawberries. They are staples pens. I was just wondering if anyone had a white mini!!!!
