Here's me using the Cricut Craft Room to layout the images I wanted to cut...

What I've Been Up To With My Cricut

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I was recently sent a Cricut Expression 2 by the nice folks at Cricut, and I've been busy.

I have to say, there is a learning curve to using your Cricut, so don't be surprised if it takes a little while to get the hang of it. That's what I discovered for myself, and is also why I recommend starting with some easy projects, like those found on the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 cartridge. (Perfect cartridge for party people, btw.)

Look what I created with it! I can't wait to use these favor boxes and paper tea cups at the small tea party I'm throwing for my daughter next month.

They were so simple to cut out and put together. Plus, my daughter likes pushing the buttons and pealing the paper off the cutting mat once the machine does its magic. She now thinks we're crafting wizzes!

To do this project, I also used the Cricut Craft Room, which is an online resource that's free, and allows you to see the entire library of Cricut images, as well as lay out your projects on your computer screen. I found it of hugely helpful and a much easier way to make adjustments to my designs.

I've also been looking at Cricut videos on YouTube and there are some super helpful ones out there.

Now the good part... This Friday we will be giving away a Cricut Expression 2 worth $299. So stay tuned for my post on Friday, and thank you kind people at Cricut!

Where will my Cricut adventure take me next?





DIY: My Homemade Valentine Cricut Project

I've been talking with the people at Cricut about doing a giveaway with us. (I know, pretty cool.) Well, the giveaway is coming soon, but in the meantime, they sent me a Cricut Expression 2 to try out for myself.

Let me preface this by saying I'm a total beginner and I don't even have any Cricut cartridges yet. But I needed to get crafty because at my daughter's preschool, the rule is that the valentines need to be homemade and the kids need to help. So, what better way to make homemade valentines than with my new Cricut?

I can't tell you how much fun I had cutting out these hearts. I used a couple of the designs that come with the Cricut, and my daughter helped glue them on. Then we hand-stamped some extra hearts using silver ink. My daughter was sick all weekend so this was the perfect project to keep us busy.

Here's my new Cricut.

Here's the machine in action, cutting out the big hearts. I used scrapbooking paper and cardstock, both bought at Jo-Ann's.

The coolest part... removing the designs from the sticky cutting mat.

And now we've got 28 homemade valentines! My daughter is hand signing them all on the back.

I will be posting about my other Cricut projects, and the more I learn, the more I'll share, but I just wanted to give you an idea of what I've been up to this weekend (besides feeding my daughter lots of Tylenol and watching Barbie movies).
