May 13 Mothers Day! Cuttle Bug Storage


Happy Mothers day to all of you beautiful women!


I have had quite a few comments about this awesome storage for my cuttlebug folders so I figured I'd tell you how I did it.  All of my small folders and dies are actually hanging up on my Poor Girls Clip It Up system (I'll showcase that in another post)  but of course I can't clip up the 4x6's and 5x7's so I tried a few different ways of storing them.  I finally arrived at the one that worked for me.

In the wood section at Michaels (and Joanns) they have unfinished CD crates.  They are 4.99 (use a coupon to make it even cheaper) and I picked one up with plans to make it all purty and store my folders.  I worked on this a few weeks ago when Christy was taking a coons age to finish ONE project and I had already done all of mine.  She kept interrupting me and telling me what I should and shouldn't do with the polka dots and blah blah - I finally threw something at her and told her to mind her own bees wax. Sheesh


So I picked up 2 bottles of paint for a buck or so and set about painting the sides green and the front and back pink.    After that dried I modge podged the circles all over.  Next day I cut card stock a smidge larger than 5x7 and made folders.  there ya have it.  Believe it or not there are about 25 folders in that box and room for tons more!

If you decide you want to try this method - have fun painting and making it your own - then please send me a photo as I'd love to see what you came up with.


Sorry, I have no idea why on earth I can't align that first paragraph - it won't budge from the center.


Have a fabulous day ladies (and gents) See you tomorrow :)


Hugs and Chirps!

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 …
