Cricut: The Official Blog
Thursday, July 15, 2010
I would like to introduce a brand new Guest Designer, Nana Susan, and a brand new kit! Ok, ok, many of you already know Susan, and yes, she just so happens to be my Mom!! She's been using her Cricut even longer than I have, and let's just say I get my artsy skill from her. She's very talented! I have started to train her on how to design kits, so you'll probably start to see about 1 per month from her. But you'll still order them from me at, and you can even combine shipping with my own kits, so it'll still be nice and convenient.

Here is the very first kit from the Nana Susan line - "Fabulous & Feisty". Designed entirely with the Paisley cartridge, it's perfect for any little girl in your life - from tiny through early teens.

This kit is VERY limited in numbers since it's the first in this line, and will include all of the patterned papers, cardstock, ribbon, buttons, brad, rhinestone, and as usual, the photo mats will all be pre-cut for you. You'll also get detailed, yet easy to follow directions with the Cricut Cut Chart, which shows you line by line exactly what you'll need to cut on your machine with all of the settings. And cuts are grouped by color so it's nice and efficient. There are also well-organized written instructions and plenty of color photographs.

To complete this layout as shown, you'll need the following supplies: Cricut Expression and mat, Paisley cartridge, dark brown chalk ink, white gel pen, 3D pop-dots, punch for brad, standard stapler, Diamond Stickles, mini glue dots for buttons, plus adhesive and standard tools such as scissors and paper trimmer.

This kit is $25, and will be available around the first week of August, which is the same time that my "Splash" kit (see post below) will be ready to ship. If you order both, you can combine shipping. Shipping for 1 kit runs $5 in California, or $6-$9 in the rest of the US, depending on location. When we combine shipping, you'll generally only pay $1-$2 extra for that second kit. Or if you're in California, there's no extra charge to ship the second kit. Also, see the slideshow at the top of my blog for other available kits. You can also purchase directions only for this and all of my past 30+ projects for $10/project. Click HERE to see options for directions only.

To order this kit or any others, just email me at Be sure to let me know what kits you'd like to order, plus your state or zip so I can calculate shipping, and if you'd prefer to pay by PayPal or check. If you choose to pay by PayPal, I will send you a PayPal invoice. If you choose to pay by check, I'll send you my mailing address along with your total. Again, this is a VERY limited kit, so don't wait long to order. And don't forget that you can combine it with the new Splash kit as well. (ps. Please be a little patient for my email replies over this weekend as I'll be doing chemo on Friday. But I will have both Susan and Wendy to help, so we'll be sure to reply - it just may take a day or two.)

Thanks for stopping in, and I hope you all like the first design from the Nana Susan line!!!

Adorable layout. How exciting that Susan will be designing. I've seen some of her projects at your place and know that she is a fabulous crafter (and mom/grandma!).

Love this one. I see boy when I look at it, so definitely not just girly! Just change the colour of the title and it would be very boy. I almost wish I had this cart, just to make this layout!
