Happy Labor Day Everyone,
I just wanted to stop by and say hello.  I also wanted to say that finally I'm getting use to my cricut.  I've had it since April and I thought I would use it always, well it frustrated me so much that I didn't use it much at all.I just got the flower cartridge, and I'm waiting for the one from Close to my Heart.  These carts seem to be geared more towards me so I'm happy.  Plus I'm slowly learning how to change the pressure to get better cuts rather than tearing of paper. 
I still won't say that I love the cricut but I do like it.  Here are some frames that I cut for my mini album out of light weight chip board, they came out great.  The more I use this machine the more I like it..
Wishing you all a great day today, off to see what you all are working on.


  1. Love those frames! You just have to keep playing with it. I use mine a lot but I still have problem with cuts sometimes (I don't think it's the's probably user error). I do find I cut most things at slower speeds than recommended unless they are shadow cuts or straight cuts. There are all kinds of youtube videos out there which can be helpful, too. If you have any questions let me know and I will try and help, too! Have a great day, Judy!

  2. some days I can cut one two there other days I throw more paper out than I care to admit. Through much trail and error I do know what settings work best on what papers so I try to stick to those brands that I get better cuts on.

  3. Wonderful frames!!! I use my Gypsy Girl a lot with my Cricut. I use a lesser pressure and do multi cut and seem to have good look that way. I think it is all just trial and error until you learn how your own machine acts. I think each one is a little different. :)

  4. I do agree with everyone else, there is definitely a learning curve but once you figure it out, you will learn to love it! I had mine for a couple of years before I finally started using it for every project and I LOVE it!! Your frames look great and I promise you will love the CTMH bundle!!
