YouTube LIVE tomorrow March 4th

jean freda phone charger

Hello everyone!!

I hope you are all doing well. I ALMOST have my voice back so I am going to to a “jean freda” tomorrow LIVE.

Now, I don’t know about you guys but around my house I am always claiming that every phone charger/iPad charger etc. belongs to MOI. Yes, I know they probably don’t all belong to me but sure seems like they are MINE. Oh my… I sure sound like a spoiled one don’t I? LOL

Anyhoooo Jean Freda (my sister) had seen these somewhere and she figured it would be a good project for my Weekly Jean Freda Challenge. If you aren’t familiar with my little (used to be very bratty) sister, her name is obviously Jean Freda and she LOVES to shop. Since I HATE to shop, I thought she could shop for me (projects for my cutting machine) and I could do the projects. It’s a lot of fun MOST of the TIME but occasionally I SWEAR she must try to find something to stump (aka embarrass) me as I fumble along LIVE.

Well, tomorrow I will be going through this project on YouTube around 1pm est. I hope you will join me!!!

DOLLS!! Free Digi Stamp!

I love using FREE images to create really fun embellishments for my cards!  This one is soooo cute that I wish I had made a mirror image of her and created a shaped card using her.  I bet the kids that we make cards for (our charity that our Facebook Group loves to give to) would be thrilled to get these cards!

Anyway… they are. The link to the free digi stamp is below the video.

HELP! Silhouette Software with my CRICUT

Are you tired of purchasing svg files and want to create your own?

Betsy, from our Patreon group, had written the following to me:

Dear Patty Anne,

  I don’t know what I am doing wrong?? I am trying to make an SVG of this logo, but have had lots of trouble. Once I finally thought I had gotten it (for the most part), betsy baseballwhen I sent it to Cricut, the are a bazillion pieces to the project. Obviously, I have not done things right! I am sending the original jpg file and then a link to my file I made……. don’t know if you can make any sense of it… I guess I just need help in step by step of how to do it… I really thought this would be easy…… NOT.
Any help would be greatly appreciated (when you MIGHT have time….. it is not urgent by any means. I would really just like to know the steps so I can do it… that’s the frustrating part… I thought this one would be easy….. sheesh.
Thank you so much for all you do and the amazing classes you offer,,,, you are wonderful!
First, thanks sooo much Betsy for the kind words!!  I hope that this video will help answer the questions you had about taking the image you created from Silhouette Software to you Cricut Machine.
By the way, you can try out the software for free HERE.
You will need to purchase the Business Edition for CRICUT.

Silhouette + Cricut = LOVE

I really do believe this!  With Silhouette software I can do soooo much more with my Cricut machine (and of course with my Silhouette Cameo 4).

If you haven’t tried it yet, what is stopping you?  Seriously.  Next best thing since sliced bread???? LOL    Kinda kidding BUT I really do love the software.

Here is how you can make fabulous larger than mat images for you CRICUT.  This video shows a step I did not go over in my prior video…that of saving the cut pieces FOR CRICUT.
