A new journey in the crafting world!!

Hello, I am putting my hand to the plow in the world of blogging again. I have had this blog for awhile just haven't been able to really utilize it . For those of you who know this blog ( that is not that many at the moment, but that will change!!) you know that I used to design files for different cutting machines. Well, I found that I was designing files more than I was scrapbooking and forget about making a card for someone. I loved the machines and the files that are out there are awesome. I just found myself not scrapping as much as I would like. So...........I bought a Cricut expression!!!!!! I have to tell you at first I didn't think that I would like it. I sat in my craft room thinking that I had maybe made a mistake. Then after some time ( ok like 30 min. into playing around with the machine) I realized it was exactly what I was looking for. It is so easy and I hardly have to think at all. I love that I can design my layout and then pick some images that I would like on it then simply find the cartridge that has it plug it into the machine and then basically cut!!! It just does not get any easier than that. I have had my machine since Jan. and I have already finished an entire scrapbook, made 3 cards ( I had never made cards before) plus created 190 purses for a women's retreat. So I am so excited to see what else I can do with this thing and I will be sharing many of my creations on here. I am posting a birthday card next!! Thanks for stopping by.

It was super easy!!!So I would like to offer some blog candy but at this time I just didn’t have anything available. Then I got to thinking and he…

using Silhouette Studio files with Ecal and MTC

Good Evening, I planned on posting this a little earlier but my day got away from me. That doesn't happen to anyone else does it? lol! Anyway I have a quick post today with a video tutorial.



I absolutely LOVE the Silhouette Online Store. It is awesome and the files that are on there are awesome too! Well I no longer have the Cameo because in the my last post you were able to see that I decided to keep the Sizzix Eclips 2. Well I had already subscribed to the silhouette store and had purchased several files. So I knew I needed to figure out a way to use them.



I had actually seen a post on a forum describing what to do. I went ahead and tried it but had to tweak a few things to get mine to work. Here is a video that shows you how to use those files so you don't feel like you wasted your money.






Have a great night everyone and thanks for stopping by my blog!!

The Lilo and Stitch font I traced from an image on Google then the surf board I traced also from Google images it was a coloring page image.  The flower and leaves were an svg I hadThis next layout is of my son Matthew he was blessed enough at Disney’s Hollywood Studio to be chosen as a Jedi Trainee for the Jedi Training school. He was so excited. We video recorded it and the video is hilarious because when they pick the kids you can cheer for yours to cause attention to be drawn and then they may pick your child. …
