  2. Bit & Pieces Cricut Cartridge Ideas

    by Richelle Naegle It's been a while since I have had a chance to make a scrapbook layout, which is sad because scrapbooking really is my paper crafting passion. I really should scrapbook more!

  7. Family Albums Cricut Cartridge Ideas

    by Richelle Naegle I really love scrapbook albums, and although I have found a love for making cards and other crafts as well, the whole reason I bought my first Cricut was to scrapbook. But sometimes making just a simple layout takes hours, and frankly I probably take too many pictures and have a hard time not including them all into...

  10. How to Make A Halloween Wreath

    by Richelle Naegle For this Halloween Ribbon wreath, I would suggest gathering some of your crafty (and not so crafty friends) over to make this one together. That's what I did this weekend.
