Cricut: The Official Blog
Saturday, October 23, 2010
Hi Peeps!! It's been a little while since I've updated my blog, but I'm back and doing really well. If you don't already know, I've been battling Stage 3 Inflammatory Breast Cancer since June. I have surgery coming up this Thursday, and if you want to follow my journey, you can do so HERE. Thanks so much to all of you for your love and support!! Now for the fun stuff - new kits!!!! See below for pics and details. To order, email me at

First up is this whimsical "Once Upon a Time" layout by Nana Susan. Colorful and versatile, this project uses the fabulous Storybook cartridge, patterned papers from Sassafras, and a variety of bright and shimmery cardstock colors. This kit is very limited in numbers and a bunch of them already sold at our crop last night, so there are only about 20 left.

Included with this kit is all of the patterned papers, cardstock and ribbon that you'll need to complete the project. The basic photo mats are pre-cut for you as well as some of the border strips. You'll also receive detailed, yet easy to follow directions with a Cricut Cut Chart that shows you line by line exactly what you'll need to cut on your machine. There are also well-organized written instructions and plenty of color photographs.

To complete this project as shown, you'll need the following supplies: Cricut Expression and mat, Storybook cartridge, black or charcoal chalk ink, 3D pop dots, white or silver gel pen, Diamond Stickles, plus basic tools and adhesive.

The complete kit is $25, or you can purchase just the directions for $10. Shipping is available, and is $5 in California or $6-$9 in the rest of the US, depending on location. You'll never pay more then $10 shipping, even if you order multiple kits. To view my other available kits, see the slide show at the top of my blog.

To order either of these new kits, just email me at and be sure to include your state or zip code so I can calculate postage. Also let me know if you'd like me to send you a PayPal invoice or if you prefer to pay by check. Both kits are currently ready to ship.

You may have seen this masterpiece recently on Everyday Cricut or if you attended our giant Swarm a few weeks ago. This spooky creation was designed by Bling Queen Wendy and uses Bo Bunny papers and the Mini Monsters cartridge. There's also a bonus project included - a monster treat bag!! What could be more fun??? This kit is also limited in numbers, and I believe there are about 24 kits available.

Included with this kit are all of the Bo Bunny patterned papers, cardstock, ribbon and delicious brads that you'll need to complete the project. The photo mats and spider web border strips are pre-cut for you. And of course, you'll get the directions with Cricut Cut Chart, written instructions and pictures.

To complete the layout and monster treat bag as shown, you'll need the following supplies: Cricut Expression and mat, Mini Monsters cartridge, black chalk ink, 3D pop dots, white gel pen, black pen, Stickles, ruler and scoring tool, plus basic tools and adhesive.

This complete kit is $25, or you can get the directions for $10. Shipping is available and is $5 in California or $6-$9 in the rest of the US, depending on location.

To order - or if you have questions - just email me at I'll be shipping kits out by Wednesday and will then be taking some time off for my surgery starting on Thursday, October 28th. I'll try to have Wendy check my emails for a little while, but please be patient if you're emailing during that time. Thanks, and I hope you all have a spooky Halloween!
