by Richelle Naegle Today I am sharing with you the various Cricut Ribbons and Rosettes projects I have come up with over the past couple of years. This is one of my very favorite classic cartridges, in large part due to its versatility. I encourage you to put on your creative cap and let's see what you can come up...
by Richelle Naegle For this fun Christmas card, I used the Paper Dolls Dress Up Cricut cartridge. This great cartridge is definitely a must have! This cartridge features people dressed up for Holidays and other events, such as Halloween, Christmas, in Western wear and so many more, along with a lot of accessories that come with each of them for example with Santa, you can cut out a sleigh, Santa’s bag, A Christmas tree and so much more. If you already have this cartridge and love it as much as I do there are a couple other similar cartridges by Cricut that have people you can cut out and dress up is, Everyday Paper Dolls, and Create a Friend, and Paper Dolls Teen Scene. Christmas Card Made with Paper Doll Dress Up For this Cricut Christmas card the overall size of the card is 5 x 7 and Santa’s cloths are cutout at 1” using the real dial size (so that everything is one inch high) While you wouldn't want to use the real dial size if you are using it to dress up people or for an image that has multiple layers, because they won’t fit together properly. But these cute Santa clothes don’t have multiple cardstock layers, it works just fine. Because these images don't have multiple layers and I wanted then to be red and white, I did have to cut them out twice once for red and once for white and then trimmed them out where the machine cuts the lines in the outfit so that you can layer them. This is an easy way to add extra layers to your cuts if you don’t want them to be just one color, without adding a lot of extra work. Continue reading →

by Richelle Naegle I love advent calendars, and so this year I decided to make my own, and after lots of searching, I came up with this wonderful idea.

by Richelle Naegle For this cute and fun little snowman card, I used the Cricut Winter Frolic cartridge. This cartridge comes in very handy during the holiday season and is popular for all the right reasons. You can use all your Cricut cartridges with many different machines, but we love the Cricut Explore Air system. The overall size of the card is 6 x 6 inches and the snowman is cut out at 5". Get creative and mix and match the accessories that you use (I'd love to see your own personal twist on this card, so please submit it to our blog), but if you want to copy my method: I used some Tim Holtz Stickles and put dots all over the snowy background. The stamped face is from Peachy Keen Stamps, and I used the little puff balls for his ear muffs. Continue reading →
