I am doing a test with Cricut vinyl…the regular vinyl which is like 631 Vinyl NOT 651 (the permanent stuff).
I have heard that it can be used on mugs etc. and will stay on through washings and possibly even through dishwasher washings. We shall see. 🙂
I will report back on the comment section of my youtube video and let you know how it goes!
Since a YouTube follower of mine asked me (in the comment section) how do you use the print and cut feature in Design Space, I told her I’d gladly create a video for her. Soooo, here it is Helen! If you have further questions, please ask! I LOVE helping people whenever I’m able.
Both Minnie and the text were “print and cut” using two different techniques which I show in the video.
Please share with your friends (if you like the video) AND, let me know if you have any other questions. 🙂
Today I used an image from Cricut Access to make this lovely card. I did change the colors up a little bit because these are the colors that I had on hand. I really love using Cricut brand card stock because it just has such a nice texture and weight to it compared to the other card stock that I bought at Joann’s. With the Cricut card stock, everything cuts so sharply and cleanly AND it doesn’t CURL WHEN I REMVOVE IT FROM THE MAT!!
When I assembled this card, I made sure that the little brad did not go the whole way through the card but rather just through the doily and the second layer.
Next up I have to create an envelope for it.
In the meantime, I do have another video on YouTube that I made yesterday – take a look.
(I love being able to use files that I have and change them up into something new!)
Well, well well…… I have just become affiliated with Cricut. Mind you I will continue to give my honest opinion of their products (see for example my opinion of the ‘card’?? or whatever that thing is on my previous video).
That being said, I DID comment on LOVING Cricut cardstock on the above video PRIOR to becoming an affiliate BECAUSE I really do like the product….. a lot. Honestly.
Anyhooooo if you’d like to check out the products:

And, here is a link to Cricut papers and card stock.
Today was a lot of fun quilting AND Cricut cardmaking!
The day started with my good buddy, Rachel, coming over! She and I love to get together to work on quilts! Today was no exception. We worked on our Blocks of the Week projects. I got two blocks done and Rachel got three. HUMP. LOL
After working on our blocks, I went back to my Cricut machine and Design Space. I created a brand new video on using what we get in Cricut Access in order to create a NEW item. I took a card that was designed as a Mother’s Day card and turned it into a Valentine’s Day card. I don’t know about you, but it makes me so happy to use what I already have. Check out the video below to see how easy it is!!
I LOVE MY CRICUT.
BTW, if you’d like to see some of the photos from today’s quilting, please check out my Facebook page.
Also, I would really appreciate it if you’d share my YouTube channel across social media and like it…if you do 🙂
Yes, you CAN create your own SVG files. It’s soooo very easy!
This video will give you all the how-tos. Just download the free software Inkscape from inkscape.ORG (No affiliation…just good FREE software!)
