Cricut: The Official Blog
Thursday, August 11, 2011
As promised, here is the nifty new layout by Nana Susan. She has been busy creating this summer! This layout IS a kit, and is available for shipping now!  To order, just go to our Cricut Kits page to use our shopping cart. Or you can just purchase the directions and download them automatically.

This rockin' retro layout would be perfect for older pics from the 50's, or even pics from a modern sock hop or just a night out getting milkshakes at your favorite diner. The kit will include all of the patterned papers, cardstock, and ribbon that you'll need to complete the layout. Plus you'll get our detailed directions with Cricut Cut Chart that shows you line by line exactly what you need to cut on your Cricut with all of the settings for each cut - and plenty of color photos to help you out.

To complete this project as shown, you will need the following supplies: Cricut Expression and mat, Nifty Fifties cartridge, charcoal or black chalk ink, 3D pop dots, white gel pen, Diamond Stickles, Gold Stickles, plus basic tools and adhesive. Cuttlebug and embossing folders are optional.

The complete kit with full directions is $25, and can be ordered from our Cricut Kits page. Or you can purchase just the directions for $10, and then download them automatically in pdf format.

And by the way, we have now added some of the other newer directions sets to our shopping cart, so be sure to check it out. If you have any questions at all, you can email me at moniquegriffith@yahoo.com.

Be sure to leave a comment for a chance at some fabulous blog candy.  You could win my new kit, "The Simple Life", which is coming out very soon and uses the Country Life cartridge.  And keep an eye on the blog for more on the way!
