If you are like me, the holidays are one of the few times I can splurge and ask for things I WANT instead of need. Knowing what to ask for can be a hard decision, but I have put together a list of the best gifts for Cricut users to help you out.
Woohoo! It’s that time again. Holiday sales and shopping have begun!
I’ve rounded up the best deals on all the Cricut and crafty goodies. I will keep adding to it as I find more. I know that several in store retailers are having some good deals too, but I prefer to shop from my couch so I have mainly focused on those. Happy shopping!
Unless you are a Design Space ninja, even experienced Cricut Design Space users can benefit from tried and true tips and tricks.
I have been so excited because Tanner at A Little Craft in Your Day asked me to write a post for his readers on Design Space hacks. I hopped at the opportunity, but I don’t want my own crafty friends to miss out.
One of the most common questions I get asked is about Cricut Access. It can be a bit confusing, so today I am going to go over all of the options for Cricut Access and help you decide if you even need it at all.
Many years ago all of the Cricut Machines used cartridges. You had to buy a new one (usually about $30-$50) for each image set you wanted. One of the common frustrations was spending all that money when you may have only really wanted a handful of the images.
Fast forward to today. All of the Cricut Machines now use Design Space instead of cartridges. Besides being able to manipulate the images, one of the best features is that you can purchase images one at a time as you need them.
Have you ever been intimidated by a design that you want to cut in vinyl but it has a lot of layers? It's a little nerve wracking trying to put all the pieces together and layer vinyl. And let's face it, the chances of having it line up on every layer just right are pretty slim.
I found this **adorable** SVG on Etsy and I really wanted to put it on a glitter tumbler for my niece. It has eight, count them, eight colors! I simplified it down to a few less and got to work figuring out the best way to layer them. Today I'm going to show you step-by-step how to layer vinyl using registration marks.
I've been all over the web finding the best free summer SVGs for all of our summer projects. Whether you are making water bottles, t-shirts, tote bags or something else- these free summer SVGs are just what you need!
One of the best parts of summer around our house is the Forth of July. Since building our own home, every year we have a big July 4th bash. Of course, that is the perfect excuse to keep adding Forth of July decor made with my Cricut!

I decided to add to our American decor and created a custom wood sign using my Cricut Explore and the Cricut stencil vinyl. No matter what design you choose, creating a custom wood sign is so much easier when you have a Cricut!
Did you know that your Cricut Explore can cut an insane variety of materials? The custom material settings in Design Space is something that you will need to be familiar with if you want to cut things that are different from the basic paper, cardstock, vinyl, etc. In this tutorial I will show you how to use the custom material settings when cutting with your Cricut Explore, as well as how to adjust the setting for different materials.
I was recently invited to a Pinterest Party. It's where everyone brings an item for each person to make and you go home with all kinds of different projects. I didn't want to just copy a Pinterest idea, so I whipped out my Cricut Explore and came up with my own- a Thankful & Blessed charger plate. I love using my Cricut for home decor and especially to be reminded of how blessed we are.
Have you jumped on the Ozark/ Yeti bandwagon yet? I purchased the 30 oz Ozark and have been surprised that I have been drinking more water everyday. Once I knew I was actually going to keep using it I decided to customize it with a scripture to meditate on. I had a lot of interest on social media for a how-to, so I have put together a tutorial and video for you today. (Looking for just the video? Scroll to the bottom.)
I love to use my Design Space app to work on projects while "watching" tv with my husband in the evenings. One of the drawbacks is that the iPad (or IPhone) has very few system fonts that are good for die cutting. They are just your everyday plain Jane fonts. So...if you want to design with the font favorites like Samantha or Magnolia Sky, you have to find a way to add fonts to your iPad. Lucky for us, there's an app for that!
Okay, so I'll admit that I'm not the most organized person now that I have been working full time again. I used to handle dinner all the time. Now I really need my husband's help, especially the two nights a week I'm not home for dinner at all. Our weekly routine usually goes like this: I plan the meals for the week and write them on the top of my grocery list. I go grocery shopping and then throw my list away. During the week my husband calls and asks what is for dinner. I have no idea because I can't remember. Every. Single. Week.
