The Queen's Royal Court Blog Hop - Featuring Cri-Kit Gel Pens

Hi Everybody!
I'm super excited for this weeks sponsor. Each day this week one of The Queen's Royal Court Designer will have a day of showcasing the Cri~kits Gel Pens.  Today is my turn!!!  First, let me tell you a little bit about these pens.

The Cri-Kits gel pens are precision made for use in the Cricut and most other die cutting machines. When inserted in place of the blade cartridge, these pens can transfer any image to your paper. With 40 color choices, there is a color to match your latest project.

The pens appear to be miniature sized gel pens . Each pen contains a small magnet on the end and when the pen is inserted into the custom holder base it clicks into place as the magnet attaches to a metal piece on
the inside of the holder.

The pen holder replaces the blade cartridge in the machine.  Once the holder and pen are firmly in place, it is time to draw! 

Here is a video I had made showing how to use these pens (along with the Cricut markers) to make a calendar page:

Here is another project I recently made:

These pens were so perfect for this!  I wanted to create my own title, but didn't want to go through the hassle of cutting out each letter and adhering them.  And sometimes it takes me forever to weld the letters together!  This was done in less than 5 minutes!!

Now Cri~Kits has generously donated to The Queen's Royal Court
 the following Blog Candy prizes:

Queen's Grand Prize:
All 42 gel-pens with magnetic holder
