Treat bags with my friend Karen

I had a procedure on my back on Monday and while it was easier than I thought, it put me behind a few days.  I mentioned on FB that I needed to do 50 bags for a staff party on Halloween and I didn't know if I could sit that long yet.  So my high school buddy Karen said "I'll come over after work, lets play!  True to her word, she showed up and we pounded these out in about 2 hours give or take.  That included a dinner break.   She was so proud of herself, she has zero cutting experience, machine or otherwise.  I was so happy for her.  We loaded up 2 bags per Mat and set it for 26 mats.  She folded and glued them all.
 The frankenstein was for her step-son and was full of m&m's.  Our original idea was to make 50 of those.  Uhm... NO.  Too much glue.   So while she assembled bags, I cut the tags for the front.  After the bags were assembled I filled them with treats while she ran the lil tags thru the zyron to get glue on them. She was so excited about how easy it was.



Here's some more Frank bags - I did a few of those for the treaters we get this year. Normally only a handful.









Before Karen got here, I decided to play around a bit with the candy bar wraps and this is the result.  I did have trouble with the Goblins & Ghouls tag.  It kept tearing no matter what kind of paper/card I used.  I finally changed the blade and that worked but it was odd because I've only cut Cardstock about a half dozen times.

These candy bar holders are in the Design space project gallery.  I already owned the cartridges used so that was not an issue.  Next time I would like to make the sides a little larger to hold a Reeses cup or thicker candy bar.


That's it for me.  I hope you guys are enjoying the posts.

Hugs and Happiness!

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 …
