Hi everyone!

So Excited Print the Cut will be released sometime next week for the Cricut Explore. The released date has not been said so I am having a hang out the night of the release, if it is not released on Tuesday the date of event will change to Tuesday, and so on. Google will remind you of the event if you are signed into google on your phone or computer, and clicked "I'm going", in the event.

You can go here and sign up and google will remind you to when the time gets close, if you can't make it you can ask and I will answer during the LIVE event and you can watch later.

This is just an invitation to watch and ask question and chat. My Patreons will be invited to be live in video hang out and will get a link unto 30 min in advance. But the first 9 people will be in as it only allows 10. 

I hope to see you all there.

Cricut Explore Winner Announced

Hi Everyone!
 I wanted to share the Cricut Design Space Facebook group has given away 2 Cricut Explores. We gave 1 away when we reached 8000 and 1 at 10,000! I love this group as we are here to help and answer any question on the Explore, people learn so much and are able to then help the newbies, people share files and projects everyday. Looking through the photos is kind of like Pinterest just for the Cricut. Looking for a sale? It's always listed there as soon as something goes on sale, one person gets a deal and shares with the group. It is very happy, helping, positive and enabling community.

Watch the video, it is so cute, the admins of the group put this together and I edited it and announced the winner, I laughed as I put everyones video parts together. 
There is a special 50% Cricut supplies code members of this group only. 
It is good until Wednesday September 10, 2014 

Ashish Arora the CEO of Provo Craft, the company that makes Cricut Products, is also a member of the group. This is an email Dewana the creator of this group received the night we got our 10,000 member.

Fall /Birthday Box Card

Hi Everyone!

 I have another box card today, this one has an interchangeable sentiment so after her birthday she can have a Fall decoration. The following picture are the same card, I used velcro under the sentiment.

As always I have the Design Space file for people who support me on Patreon. You don't have to support me to make this, it is all Cricut images. You can get a box card base and add what ever you want in it. I show how I embellished the images with chalk and used acetate to stand everything up in the video below. 

A few things I used to make the box card.

S-Fold Card with 3 Tabs

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to show you the completed card I started yesterday with the embossing. I did not create the card style, I had inspiration from one of my Patreons asked me to design this in Cricut Design Space. I had no measurements to go by, I also added layers. It took a few test cuts, I also had help from Rose Andrews who test cut for me as well. I gave my basic file to my supports on Patreon a few days ago so the could cut this out as well and I will have some of their cards below, more will be added as they are done.   

Owl Never Forget You

In the video I show how to write and add text in Design Space and much more. I used chalks on the owl and around the edges of some other cuts.
You can see the embossing video on my post from yesterday. I used the Close To My Heart Artbooking Cricut Cartridge for the owl and the wood back ground in the card I have done today. 
 I have many more ideas for more cards, I just need more time. So I want to thank those who are sharing their cards with us today, they are so creative. 
Here is the video showing how to add writing in Cricut Design Space and much more.

 Thank you to my talented Patreons for sharing their cards with us, as more do them I will add them, I only gave a few days notice.
