Cricut: The Official Blog
Wednesday, March 2, 2011
Welcome back!  If you're coming over from Everyday Cricut, you've already seen my His & Hers Country Cards.  If not, be sure to check out Everyday Cricut for sizes and details on how to make these yourself.  And as a little bonus, I have added a video below with some design tips for taking a simple project and making it stand out!  Also, see below for today's blog candy during my Week of Giveaways.  And as promised, we're releasing yet another new kit for March.  This one is by Becca Rees, and wow - I think she captured the essence of little boys exploring the great outdoors!  Plus you can visit Wendy's blog for more blog candy.  Whew!  Here's the set of country cards I made...


And this is the video I made with some design tips, and showing the process of taking a plain, simple card, and making it "pop".


Now for today's blog candy. I never do this, but I'm going crazy this week and decided to give away a completed layout. This is the "Gone Buggy" one that I made a week or so ago, and that Joy and Melanie showed on Everyday Cricut over the weekend, and a lot of you commented that you really loved it. So now it's up for grabs! Just follow my blog and leave a comment on today's post for a chance to win. It's also helpful if you leave your email address so I can contact you if you're the winner.


And finally, here is our newest kit, "Explore" by Becca Rees. It uses the Nate's ABC's cartridge, and is perfect for pics of your sweet boy. We don't really do a lot of boy kits around here, so jump on this one while you can. And btw, if you ever fall in love with a kit, but don't own the cartridge, I highly recommend that you buy the kit and then worry about getting the cart later because the kits often sell out quickly, especially when they're this cute. To order, email me at moniquegriffith@yahoo.com. Let me know which kit you'd like, your state, and preferred payment method (PayPal or check).


Included with this kit, you will receive: all of the patterned papers, cardstock, and ribbon needed to make the layout. Photo mats and border strips will be pre-cut for you. You'll also get detailed directions with Cricut Cut Chart that shows you line by line exactly what you'll need to cut on your machine, with all of the settings for each cut. Plus there are well-organized written instructions and plenty of color photographs.


To complete this layout as shown, you will need the following supplies: Cricut Expression and mat, Nate's ABC's cartridge, brown and blue chalk ink, Baby Blue Stickles, white gel pen, brown or black pen, 3D pop-dots, plus basic tools and adhesive.


This complete kit is $25. Or you can purchase just the directions to this layout for $10. Shipping is available, and ranges from $5 in California, to $6-$9 in the rest of the US, depending on location. We're happy to combine shipping, and you won't pay more than $10 shipping even if ordering multiple kits.


To order, email me at moniquegriffith@yahoo.com. Please let me know which kit you'd like, and your state or zip, plus your preferred payment method (PayPal or check). This kit will be ready to ship on March 28th.



Thanks again for stopping by today and all week. It has been such a blast getting to share our work with you. Be sure to come back to both Everyday Cricut and this blog tomorrow for a new project by Bling Queen Wendy, and another new kit release. I'm also *hoping* to have a video ready for you to show you how our kits work. Fingers crossed!

I love your style, you make everything come alive somehow! The spring lo is really beautiful that your BFF did. Being a mother to 6 boys this lo really hit home and brought back lots of memories of my boys. The cards are amazing! I love the country feel to them as we are very country-ish our selves. LOL But the Gone Buggy lo is to stinking cute and it is so awsome that you have it as blog candy! Thanks for the chance at winning one of your lo's! If I win it will be framed and hung in my craft room!!

mom2h said...

Since I can't afford "the circle", I'd LOVE to win the GONE BUGGY layout!!! I took a copy of that LO to a recent weekend retreat and everyone went nuts for it. I currently have 3 Cricuts, but I have found a good home for the Baby Bug. I had to make room for the E2 my dh is getting me for Mother's Day!!! YIPPEE!!!

On a side note, I'd love for ProvoCraft to put out a general crafting cartridge...just an idea!

THanks, Monique and Wendy. You are doing a great job! Keep up the good work!

You are right, the shadow layer, brads and white pen make all the difference in the world. I love the Gone Buggy video and have pics of me and my grandchildren using the cricut tht would be great on this layout. The little boy layout would be great for pics of my grandson. You are so talented.

Thanks for all the great tips! I love the "Explore" pages. I could use them for pictures of my grandsons. I wish I had the cart with the sewing machine on it so I could make the card!

I so love the boy layout. I have 4 grandsons. I'm crazy for your Going Buggy layout. I'm not a member of the circle but I love that particular cartridge.

love the nostalgia feel of the the Country cards, the one with the stove reminds me of my grandparents home in KY. Grandpa would go to the coal shed to put some coal in to keep us warm. Oh how I miss KY and the bygone days. TFS and bringing make fond memories.

Thanks for a chance to win the Gone Buggy layout and for your time and inspiration!

Awesome kits and cards! Thanks for the inspiration.

I wish you'd link to the actual post on EveryDay Cricut instead of just the website, I'm having a heck of a time finding any information on the cards because there are 7,000 posts just from "the week of the 17th". Is that an Imagine cart or can I get those images for my E?
