Magnolia Frame-It-Up Seasonal Wreath

Call me crazy, but I take pleasure in a piece of Home Decor that I can change each season.  Maybe it's the creator in me or the indecisive hormones, nonetheless, having the ability to change my home decor intermittently is something I enjoy.  This week, I decided to create a simple wreath that I can… Continue reading Magnolia Frame-It-Up Seasonal Wreath

Tuesday Tutorial Paper Pansy

This is the time of year when my backyard starts to fill with color.  (If you follow me on Instagram, you will see a few postings of my "little" outdoor retreat.)  Pansies are one of my favorite flowers, and, being the crazy paper-crafter that I am,  I wanted to recreate them using my Cricut®.   This… Continue reading Tuesday Tutorial Paper Pansy

Tuesday Tutorial Crocus Flower

Our Flower Market Collection has some beautiful two dimensional and three-dimensional flowers, yet I could not find a Crocus to create for spring.  After playing with some of the images on the cartridge, I discovered a way to create one for this week's tutorial. You can find a list of the supplies I used at… Continue reading Tuesday Tutorial Crocus Flower

May Kit of the Month

Usually, I have this posted and ready for you to view by the 15th of each month, but my order for the new supplies took a little longer than expected and, when it did arrive, I had to sadly watch it sit unopened until I could escape life to play.  It was well worth the… Continue reading May Kit of the Month

Cricut Basics Class

I continually hear people who have told me they have purchased a Cricut® machine and cannot figure out how to use it.  They become frustrated and discouraged and plan on donating the machine or selling it online to the highest bidder.  Are you one of these people? Come to my Cricut® Design Space Basics class… Continue reading Cricut Basics Class
