Almost the new year!

Hi everyone! it's been a while I know since I last posted. I hope everyone had a happy holiday! I sure did. I made everyone something for Christmas. I made Glass Blocks and monogram tiles for the adults, and for the younger kids I made name tiles to hang in their bedrooms.


Yesterday I was surfing some of the blogs I frequent, and they inspired me to make some cards. Here are 4 of them. For the first card I used the liner option of the Wild Card Cricut Cartridge. The flowers were from a file created by Penny Duncan.

These next 2 cards were inspired by a post in the Cricut Community. Both are the same general design just different papers.

My New Year's resolution is to stay up to date with this blog.

Creating Shadows with Cricut Design Studio

I just found this video for creating shadows with your Cricut DS software. I thought it might be useful for the Cricut users. Here's the link. Creating Shadows with Cricut Design Studio Software

I also found, on another blog, a bag to hold your Cricut. This bag retails for $22.95 and comes in red, blue, green, black, and pink. Wow!

I all!! Sorry it's been so long since I posted. I have been playing with new software for the Cricut. The first is the Cricut Design Studio software. You can use this software along with your Cricut machine and cartridges to weld together your words and shapes.
The second software program is the Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) software. This software can be used with any true type font (TTF) along with your Cricut machine. The great thing with this software is you do not need any cartridges!! I'm still playing around with both of these programs but so far they extend the versatility of your Cricut machine beyond belief. I used the SCAL for the two LO posted today. The roller coaster was created with the Carnival Days TTF. For the May LO, I used the Eutemia Ornaments TTF and OleScriptSSK TTF. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would rate both of the programs an 8. I would give them a 10 if the programs could be used interchangeably.

National Scrapbooking Day

Yesterday was our NSD event. My feet are still tired!! I had so much fun and everyone got many pages completed. The 2 layouts that I posted were just an example of the hard work and creativeness that filled the room.
