Cricut: The Official Blog
Wednesday, March 24, 2010
Spring has officially sprung! We've got flowers blooming, soft sunshine and fresh, cool breezes. What could be better? How about a layout to go with it? In fact, let's make it two brand new layout kits! One for the sweet girls, and one for those active boys (scroll down to see the boys layout). To order either or both - or any other kits shown in the slide show above, email me at and include your state or zip so I can calculate postage. See below for all of the details...

The new "In Bloom" layout is available to ship as a kit, or you can even take it as a class if you're in the Northern California area. This layout is perfect for springy pictures of your little princesses. It uses Basic Grey papers (aren't they gorgeous?), real zig-zag stitching (pre-sewn for you), hand-crocheted flowers, polka-dot ribbon, and even a touch of bling, giving this project a soft vintage feel.

For you Nor-Cal locals, this class will be held Thursday, April 8th at 6pm here at my home in Rocklin. Space is limited to 25 people, and the class is already half full even though I'm just now releasing the pictures, so I do expect it to fill up quickly. The class is $25, and includes the kit with papers, cardstock, ribbon, etc. See below for a list of what supplies you'll need to complete the project.

Kits are also available for shipping, and will ship out by April 12th. Kits are $25, and include all patterned papers, cardstock, ribbon, brads, crocheted flowers, and even some chipboard to pop the title up. You'll also get my full directions which are detailed, yet easy to follow. And they include my Cricut Cut Chart which shows you line by line exactly what to cut on your machine with all of the settings. Plus cuts are grouped by color to make it more efficient. There are also well-organized written instructions and plenty of color photographs. Shipping ranges from $5 in California, or $6 to $9 in the rest of the US, depending on location, and I'm happy to combine shipping. To order, email me at and include your state so I can calculate shipping.

Here's a list of what you will need to complete this project as shown:
Cricut Expression with mat and blade, A Child's Year cartridge (available
HERE or HERE if you don't own it already), dark brown chalk ink (such as Versa Magic or Cat's Eye), 3D pop-dots, glue dots, white gel pen, brown marker, plus adhesive and standard tools such as paper trimmer, scissors, etc.

And here below is the other new layout kit. We can't leave out the boys!
To order, just email me at and include your state or zip so I can calculate postage. See below for all of the details.

This layout is a Limited Edition kit. What that means is that it will not be taught as a class, and there are limited numbers available. When it's gone, it's gone, and I won't be making more. Plus it's only $20 rather than the usual $25. So these Limited Edition kits tend to sell out pretty quickly. Consider yourself warned!

This kit will ship out by April 12th. The kits include all Basic Grey patterned papers, plus cardstock, brads, and full directions with Cricut Cut Chart and plenty of color photographs. The kit is $20. Shipping ranges from $5 in California or $6 to $9 for the rest of the US depending on location. I'm happy to combine shipping if you're ordering more than one kit (max shipping charge is $10 for shipping upto 8 kits). See below for list of supplies that you'll need to make this layout.

To complete this layout as shown, you'll need the following items: Cricut Expression or Create with mat and blade, A Child's Year cartridge (available HERE or HERE if you don't own it already), dark brown chalk ink (such as Versa Magic or Cat's Eye), 3D pop-dots, silver or white gel pen, tiny hole punch for brads, plus adhesive and standard tools such as paper trimmer, scissors, etc.

Again, to order this kit or the "In Bloom" kit or any of the kits shown in the slide show at the top of my blog, just email me at and include your state or zip so I can calculate postage. I prefer PayPal, but also accept checks or money orders.

Thanks for checking out my blog. And btw, I'm getting soooooo close to 1000 followers, and plan to celebrate with several great giveaways when I hit the mark, so make sure you're a follower, and tell your friends and then stay tuned for more info!
