I said it would never happen..., I was wrong.

Holy cow time sure does fly!

I'm sorry I've been MIA for almost a year!  Loads of stuff happening from a new grand baby to a new job and loads in between.

Tomorrow there is some excitement happening I wanted to share.  Y'all know I've kicked Cricut to the Curb and have been using my Cameo.  I kept my Imagine (cause you can't give those away these days) and I kept my Expression cause well....it's the best thing that ever happened to me!    I made so many friends, traveled, spent too much money and made a little too.

I've been on the fence with trying the new Explore.  I've really been struggling with it for the last 6 months give or take.

Tomorrow my Explore and wireless adapter arrive. Thankfully I have the day off as I have to go get a procedure on my back.  I hope it's still numb enough for me to play for awhile tomorrow afternoon/evening.




I've pinned a lot, surfed a lot and watched a lot of videos. I've seen friends who swore off Cricut go back to them because of this machine and because of the new direction Customer support has taken.  Everyone I talked to feels like they matter, feels like this is truly a good thing.  So many so that I have to take the plunge and I think I'm ready.

I've played around in Design space a little the last few days and I'm lovin the 'canvas' choices - they even had my Kitchen Aid Mixer!  One of the first things I'm going to slap vinyl on YAY!

Wish me luck!  Please leave me a comment and let me know if you've gone with Explorer and what your experiences have been.




Hugs and Happiness!

  1. Congrats on getting the Explore! I am so much like you as I have kept my 2 expressions, my imagine but got frustrated with the Cricut Company and bought the Cameo....but after receiving an email from cricut about giving me all the images for the imagine for free perked my interest again. AND it was then that I learned about their new device! I knew I had to have it and requested it from hubby. My only problem is he bought it and hid it away for Christmas and he has no clue I found it and I want it NOW LOL! Somehow I have to convince him I need it now without letting on I know he already has it. Oh the games I must play now heehee. For now I am going to stalk your pinterest board. :-)

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 …
