Cricut: The Official Blog
Saturday, May 8, 2010
Spring Greetings! It's once again the second Saturday, so it's my turn as Guest Designer over at Everyday Cricut HERE. If you've never checked out Everyday Cricut, you simply must!! It's the absolute best Cricut blog out there, and they are always giving away an obscene number of amazing prizes. So here's a sneak peek of the "Tree Hugger" layout I've posted over there... (This will NOT be a kit, but there is plenty of info over there for you if you want to scraplift it.)

And if you've just popped over to my blog from Everyday Cricut - a huge welcome to you!! I'm a full-time Cricut Designer and Instructor (independent), and I specialize in not only teaching classes locally, but making kits of all of those classes so that people all across the country and even overseas can get the kits and make them at home, while learning more about their Cricut. The directions are detailed, yet very easy to follow because I include my Cricut Cut Chart, which shows you line by line exactly what to cut on your machine with the size and settings for each and every cut. Plus cuts are grouped by color to make it very efficient. There are also well-organized written instructions and plenty of color photographs. I don't mess around!

I just posted 3 brand new kits the other day that are proving to be very popular so far, and you can check out all 3 in the post below this one. There's a Minnie Mouse Book, the "Catch a Wave" layout, and a Girly Gift purse with cards that fit inside. You can also check out the slide show at the very top of my blog to see ALL of my available kits. If you have any questions or see something you'd like to order, just email me at

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy my blog!! And a huge Happy Mothers Day to all of you moms out there!!

Where on earth have I been lately? (Busy working away on my Cricut!) True, I haven't posted in a couple of weeks. But the good news is that I've got a few new projects to show you to make up for it, and all three are available as kits. Plus I've got a little shipping special going on, so check it out below for details. To order, just email me at

First up, it's a brand new Minnie Mouse Book! Who doesn't love Disney? This is a chipboard shape book perfect for pictures of your little Minnie-loving sweetie pie. There are several inner pages for photos and journaling. The pics below show only half of the inside pages, so there are even more fun details than meet the eye! This kit is $30, and includes all of the patterned paper, cardstock, chipboard, ribbon, rings, etc. that you need to complete the project - plus detailed yet easy to follow directions. And btw, the pages themselves will be pre-cut for you to make your life easier. This kit is available for shipping starting May 17th.

Supplies you'll need to complete the Minnie Mouse Book as shown: Expression and mat, Mickey & Friends cartridge, Mickey Font cartridge, Crop-a-dile or hole punch for chipboard, dark brown chalk ink, white gel pen, Diamond Stickles, standard tools and lots of adhesive.

It's almost Summer, and here's the brand new "Catch a Wave" layout to get the party started! This kit is $25, and includes all of the patterned papers, cardstock, 3 different ribbons, multiple journal box options, and full directions. This kit is available for shipping starting May 24th.

Supplies you'll need to complete the "Catch a Wave" layout as shown: Expression and mat, Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge, any font cartridge (I used Cuttin' Up), light brown and dark brown chalk ink, 3D pop dots, white gel pen, brown pen, stapler, plus standard tools and adhesive.

And finally, it's the "Girly Gift" purse and card collection. A unique gift for a special friend, sister, daughter, mom or teacher (wouldn't this make a GREAT end-of-year teacher gift???), this beautiful purse holds a perfectly coordinating set of 4 fabulously girly note cards and envelopes. This kit includes 1 sheet of 12x24 cardstock, the beautiful patterned papers, cardstock, ribbon, brads, rhinestones, envelopes, and velcro closure for the purse. Plus of course, the full directions. The kit is $25, and shipping is available starting May 10th. (Yes, I've finally figured out a way to ship the kit *with* the 12x24 cardstock - woohoo!)

Supplies you'll need to make the Girly Gift project as shown: Expression and mat, plus 12x24 mat, Tags-Bags-Boxes cartridge, Mother's Day cartridge, black or dark brown chalk ink, 12" ruler and scoring bone, 3D pop dots, black pen, Diamond Stickles, plus standard tools and adhesive.

To order kits, just email me at and include your state or zip code, and if you prefer to pay with PayPal or mail a check. Shipping is available, and ranges from $5 in California, to $6-$9 in the rest of the US, depending on location. SHIPPING SPECIAL OFFER (for kits being shipped together): If you order 2 kits, get half-price shipping. Order 3 or more kits, and receive FREE shipping.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my new projects!!! Btw, be sure to check out the Everyday Cricut Blog HERE this coming Saturday as I will be a Guest Designer and will be showing a fun layout using the Give a Hoot cartridge.
