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.
Today's Cricut Explore project is labeled spice jars. I am so excited to have finished a project for our new home! We just moved in a couple months ago and to say we are still getting things in order is an understatement! This weekend I was able to take a little time for myself and give my Cricut some love. Here's the play by play on how you can make these labeled spice jars for your kitchen too.
So you are finally ready to jump in to learning Cricut Design Space. **happy dance** I know it can be overwhelming, but I am going to do my best to break it down for you easy peasy. One of the very first things you will probably want to learn in Cricut Design Space is how to "weld". Welding means that you are taking two separate images and "welding" them into one single image. This is especially used when you want to cut out a word but need it all connected. Here is how to weld in Cricut Design Space using the app on the ipad or phone.
Father's Day is almost here and that means that lots of us need to whip up some cards. I've found some great Cricut Father's Day cards to inspire you to get busy!
Once you have linked your cartridges it's time to play! When you want to look through your cartridges that you own in Design Space here is how.
Once you have your Explore it is time to link any cartridges you may have so that you can use them in Cricut Design Space. If you have had an Expression and linked your cartridges to the Cricut Craft Room or to a Gypsy you won't physically link your cartridges because they are already linked.
