Scrappin' Saturday: Drawing With Your Cricut!

Welcome to another Scrappin' Saturday here at FCCB!

Today I'd like to show you a super-fun product that I have just recently purchased and LOVE...the Mini Gel Pen Holder and Mini Marker Holder, by Chomas Creations! These holders fit in your Cricut machine and allow you to draw on your Cricut projects, using mini gel pens and markers!
One of the reasons I was initially interested in these holders is because the Cricut brand markers that fit in the Cricut are not permanent, and therefore do not work on transparencies, shrink plastic and other similar slick surfaces...they smear. The Mini Sharpie Holder solves that problem!
You may be wondering how to incorporate these on your layouts....well, Amy Chomas, the creator of these nifty little gadgets, has tons of beautiful scrapbook pages posted on her website, all made using her Mini Gel Pen Holder or Mini Sharpie Holder. Here are just a few:

Awesome, aren't they???
Robin, the creator of FCCB, also featured the Mini Gel Pen Holder in her Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post HERE. You can see the awesome detail these holders provide on her beautiful card below:

This video, by Custom Crops, shows you step-by-step how to use the Mini Gel Pen and Mini Marker Holders in your machine:

Be sure to head over to Chomas Creations and tell Amy how super-cool these holders are! If you have these holders and would like to share a project that you've made with them, leave us a comment below with a link to your creation...we'd love to see it!
Happy Scrappin'!!!
