I loved making this wall hanging! Using the stars really helped with the placement of each layer of vinyl. See how in the video.

I’ve been having so much fun playing with paper and cardstock. I hope you’re joining us in our Facebook group (Cricut Design Space with PattyAnne) as it seems I’m able to post there more often than here at times.
For example, I recently posted my version of this beauty. The files for it are from the same link above were the free files are. Isn’t it adorable?
Having fun and livin’ the life! Truly!!
I am having a blast learning to make cute, Cute, CUTE party decorations (or wall decor) with my Cricut Explore machine. Since I didn’t want to have to glue a lot of little pieces, I made the majority of the kitty as a print and cut file and then added her nose and dress??? shorts??? as cut out pieces.
I think I’ll try another! Hmmmm whatever shall I try??? 🙂
Have you tried this yet?
I was creating a new vinyl project…. it was to be a silhouette of my Golden Doodle, Daisy. Unfortunately, the blade of my Cricut must have had some gunk on it because it did not cut the text out well AT ALL.
(VERY unusual for my machine for sure!)
When I examined the blade, I could see something on it. I tried to wipe if off with a paper towel but it didn’t work. Soooo I got out my old trusty pincushion.
Here’s a little wikipedia history on the tomato cushion (I know you want to know):
One popular design—a tomato with a strawberry attached—was most likely introduced during the Victorian Era. According to folklore, placing a tomato on the mantel of a new house guaranteed prosperity and repelled evil spirits. If tomatoes were out of season, families improvised by using a round ball of red fabric filled with sand or sawdust. The good-luck symbol also served a practical purpose—a place to store pins. Typically, the tomato was filled with cotton, wool, horsehair, or sawdustand the strawberry with emery powder, an abrasive to clean and sharpen the pins.

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.
