Cricut Explore "Make it now" free layout


I have never cut a pre-designed layout on my Cricut Expression or Explore. I figure, why not take advantage of the creativity of the Provocraft designers. This layout called "Birds of a Feather" is available on Design Space for free. I added the clothespins,ribbon and buttons.


I like it! It's perfect for an Instax camera photo of my daughter and her friend. The cameras, film and accessories are now available at Walmart and Michaels.


If you are curious about these cameras they are super fun but the photo quality is much like its predecessor the Polaroid camera. It IS perfect for a twelve year old girl though! And, after all, I'm happy with any scrap-worthy shots.

Happy World Card-Making Day!


Of course, I had to post some cards today! Though, I do not enjoy making sympathy cards, I also believe that they can be the most important to give out. I like to make a few at a time so I always have one available.

Al Capone's Tunnel Tour layout


Hello! I have a summer road trip layout for you today from the summer of 2012. I have now finished that travel album!


There are no photos of the actual tunnel tour because cameras were not allowed. :( I loved the tour and hearing how Al Capone would secretly escape to Canada.

Cricut Explore Print and Cut


Hi Everyone! I am on day 13 of owning a Cricut Explore. Yes, that means my free subscription ends tomorrow. :(

Last night, Cricut Explore had an update. They released the print and then cut feature. The first step is calibrating your machine in using this feature. Design Space explained every step along the way. This is my first printable cut ever! It's from the imagine cartridge Greeting Cards Inside Out.


So, then I tried a regular Cricut cartridge cut. This cut is from the Movie Night cartridge. The only step to remember is to hit "flatten" if you only want one layer printed and cut.


I am still very much a newbie, but so far, I am loving this machine. There are many youtube videos on explaining how to get set up to print and cut as well as the information on the Cricut.com website.

Cricut Explore


Hiddy-ho there everyone!
Summer is over around here. It was a great one but seemed too short. The kids are back to school and I am getting back to scrapping. On the first day of school, I sent my kids off and drove straight to a scrappy store and bought a Cricut Explore. I opened the box last week and have been cutting like mad. The free subscription of cartridges is for only two weeks. Ack! I want to take full advantage of this! So far, it cuts beautifully. The pressure of all these wonderful cartridges disappearing in two weeks has kicked the scrapbooking into high gear. I will post many layouts soon.
I hope everyone is well! I will be in my scrapbook room.

Summer mini album


The hubs asked me to come to his school this week and do some scrapbooking with the junior high students. I quickly made up a mini album using solid color cardstock and cereal boxes. The girls were very polite, keen and seemed to enjoy making them.


Today is the last day of school for my children so now I can't wait to start making our summer memories!
