50 States Binder Project

Well heck - I'm not sure how that happened but I did a post on the 50 states binder project, saved it, then scheduled it for upload for 3am and this morning I discovered it hasn't posted. So I went in on my ipad and changed it from scheduled to auto, then clicked 'post' and everything went away.  :(

Ok so - starting over.  The 50 States Binder did not have a project - I don't think any of the classmates cartridges do.  So I just chose to put all the cuts for my state on a 12x12 sheet so you could see what they looked like. I'm a little disappointed that the capital and the state names did not have a shadow feature but I love the flag!




I thought the birds were a little funky and the flower had too many layers but that's just me. Also the state shape was done at 4"  look how tiny that thang is.  The one under Annapolis actually has a tiny star cut out of it to show you were the capital is.  I just arranged them on a 12 by 12 so you could see how the cuts look. 

Don't forget there will be a post every day this week and you must leave a comment on each of them to qualify for the blog candy.

Have a beautiful day!

  5. LOVE that project. I am so sorry that you had lost your post! I hate when that happens! I am glad you posted it again! It is amazing how small that one is at 4". I am guessing it is because in relation to the other states at 4" that is the size it needs to be. If it was set at true size it would probably be larger. Thank you so much for sharing! I am a new follower and would be honored if you would come to my blog and do the same if you aren't already at ACreativeJourneywithMelissa dot blogspot.com
    Have a wonderful Sunday!

  14. Your state flag is amazing! The birds look like they should be on a wall clock, but they do look great! I guess the size of your state is proportional to states like Texas and California. Just remember, big things come in small packages! Lol!

  16. I have this cart but have never used it. Thought my grandson would use it for school, but no projects yet. I think I read somewhere that if you cut them all at the same size they will fit together to make the whole US.--Ryansmaama

Hello!

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 …
