Old West Cartridge Challenge

Jen Stewart brings us another super fun project as a Guest Designer and she has a lot to say about this frame.

I need to say that this project is a little more advanced, takes a bit of time patience getting the small pieces together.  I bought a frame from Michaels in the unfinished wood area for $1.00.

1. PRIME your frame first - the frame soaks up a lot of paint, so priming first will help cut down coats.  I used 3 coats of paint total (primer, then 2 coats of green paint)

2. I found it easiest to cut pieces one step at a time and assemble.  i.e. cut all pieces for the horses, then assemble horses, cut all pieces for the hat, then assemble - etc. Oh yeah - ink all the edges - you'll be glad you did!  It just adds a bit more rustic charm.

3.  If you have a Xyron, it made it faster and easier to assemble all the pieces together.

4.  Lay all assembles pieces on the frame before adhereing them down.

5.  I used pop dots for adhereing to the frame.  Makes it fun to pop right off the frame!!

Remember this project is a bit more advanced using the Cricut.  There is a lot of shifting of keys and lots of different images to cut.  This project took me about 2 hours from start to finish.  Have fun - this project is worth the time and effort!!

Thanks Jen!

Hi everyone!

It's been almost 2 years since I posted... YIKES! It's been a little hectic on my end but I have been playing lately and hope tohave more posts.

I'm writing mainly because I noticed that the graphics on my blog has disappeared and I'm looking into why that has happened. I'm also looking into migrating to WordPress.

I've been making a lot of t-shirts lately and will post about them once everything is settled. For those of you that area actually still around - I appreciate it! I hope to bring a fresh new beginning to Kricut Krazy and become super active once again. I've missed you all dearly!

Hugs and Happiness!

Scoring with the Cricut Explore!

So, one of the cool new things is the ability to score and cut at the same time.  I'm finding myself needing the score ability quite frequently.  You should see me trying to hand score something - I'm never 100% accurate.... like ever.  So here is the handy dandy score tool by Cricut.

 So Yesterday I needed to make about 50 treat bags for a staff party at work on Halloween.  The first couple of bags I scored by hand. Oh... bad idea. They were crooked.  So I'm eyeballing the score tool holder thingy.  I had ordered one via amazon but it wouldn't be in until the next day, Me? Wait? NAH!  So I'm looking around my tool drawer and I find this embosser I bought many moons ago to use with Brass Stencils.  I put it in and shut the clamp thingy and away we go!  Y'all!!!!!!!! It worked.  Holy cow it worked.  You can see the score mark below.  How exciting is that!?

Today I get home from work and my new score tool is waiting for me.  Except I left it in the package. For …
