Here's the goodies that come in the kit.  On the far left (that you can barely see) is a pack of cards and envelopes.  It also comes with instructions on how to put the cards together.  The white sheet has a bunch of cutouts (already punched).  After you've made these original cards up, you can cut more shapes out with your Cricut cartridge.  (yippee!)

Included in the Kit:
Cutting guide and instructions

Close up of the stamp set:

Not a big fan of mustaches, but the other stamps I like ok. 
Here's the 5 "official" cards that you can make in the pack:
(I stamped everything in Lagoon...)

Oops, I rotated the card before I put the mustache on.  I kind of like's a faceless face.

 Love the clouds...and the Star Trek-like triangles...

I cut a tiny glitter heart out of the Shimmer Trim by hand.

This card (above) is my favorite out of the kit. 

Still dealing with my Washi Tape Phobia...but I may be getting the hang of it...

Here's a couple more that I made with some leftover pieces...

I adhered the Teal Glitter Tape to a piece of paper that was 3/4" wide, trimmed the bottom and made it another flag.  The dots on the corners are from the Aqua Dots embellishments (Z1853, $3.95 for 108 dots in 4 different sizes and 3 different colors)

I used one of the larger hearts in the kit and made like a heart with an arrow through it.  The reason the stamped image is fuzzy, is I twisted it after my original stamp.  It blurs the stamped image.  I like it, even though it's a little weird looking.  Also, I used some Paradise Assortment Baker's Twine (Z1702, $4.95 for 10 yards each of 4 different colors).  The twine is one of my favorite accessories!

I hope your year is filled with blessings, smiles and good health,  Like the beauty pageant contestant says - I wish for WORLD PEACE.  (With all the people wishing for it, why is it that we are still searching for it??)
