Hello on this cold and snowy day. Today I have a card project I did to share with you. I saw a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers for a building block card and decided I would give it a try. Now… I have a Cricut Explore so I thought why not try to create a cut file in Design Space to let my Cricut do some of the work for me. After a couple hours of work, I had the base file for the card. Now came the fun of creating a dressed up version. Continue reading

Today marks the first card in my new washi tape card series. I took a card I had made previously and put in my shop and revamped it for the upcoming Halloween holiday. I used an image from the newest Cricut cartridge Potions and Spells for my greeting on the front of the card (love the images on that cartridge by the way). I made my card base in Design Space also since I was cutting the image though you could skip this step and just cut it with a paper trimmer and fold it in half. The green words were cut out in outdoor vinyl (Oracal 651) to make assembly easier and save the need to attach the letters separately. I inked the edges of both the card and the rectangle in Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink and stamped a Stampabilities spider web in the corner. The Halloween washi tape I chose were from Queen & Co. (not sure if they are still available), the orange and purple were both from a Peachy Cheap offer and the white Beware tape is a dollar bin (Studio G?) tape from Joann’s. I finished it off with some tiny spiders from an older Close to My Heart set of woodblock stamps called Spinning Spider, a bling spider from Hobby Lobby and my favorite Wink of Stella pen.

YAY! The highly anticipated Cricut cartridge Artfully Sent is finally here! While I haven’t had a chance to play with this one personally, this looks like it is going to be an amazing cartridge. From now till midnight on Sunday, September 14, 2014 if you purchase the Artfully Sent cartridge from my Close to My Heart website, I will send you the two mini stamps below. Combined retail value of both stamps is $6 and I will send them to you for FREE.
Hello! Now that most of us have had our Cricut Explore for a little while, we have started venturing out beyond the basics. Or maybe you are new to Cricut and are just learning. First, congrats on your new machine if you are a newbie! It is an amazing tool in our crafting world. The Explore has MANY new things it can do and they are constantly adding more features. One of the many awesome things the Cricut Explore can do is it has the ability to use fonts from your computer (system fonts). If you have never downloaded a font before, this may be a mystery to you. I will warn you though, once you start . . . it’s hard to stop. You will find before too long you have hundreds of fonts on your computer to pick from. Now, once it is downloaded, how do you use it in Design Space?
I have created a little video tutorial below that will decode the mystery of downloading a font onto your computer and using it in Design Space. BUT, the possibilities don’t stop there. Once you have that font installed it is available to use in ANY program on your computer that uses fonts. Watch the video then like, share and comment and let me know what you think. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me and I’d be happy to help.
Have a wonderful day and HAPPY CRAFTING!!
