Need cutter tools?

I needed some tools for the cutting machines…I have a few, but probably not enough.  Well, honestly, do you ever really have enough?

The problem that I have is that the Cricut tools are very expensive!  Yes, they have a lot of them, there is literally a tool for every job – but here in Canada we can either order them from Cricut.com and face the exchange rate and customs OR we can purchase them from Michaels.  As everyone knows, Michaels is a fantastic store, but it is also an expensive store.  At least I think so 🙂 

I have heard people getting exciting and raving about “Mystery Boxes” from Cricut FILLED with tons of Cricut crafting goodies, so I decided to check it out. 

The price was $29.99 USD with free shipping (I purchased 2 mystery boxes) but I really wondered what I would get.  The website tells you what’s in the box – so not really much of a mystery after the fact, LOL, but I didn’t know if they were damaged goods, or seconds or anything like that.  As soon as I opened the box, I realized that the contents were top quality and an amazing deal.  

I figured that the value would be well over $200 CDN for my Cricut box of goodies.  That’s pretty good for only $29.99 USD.   

Check out what my first mystery box!  Yeah, I am pretty happy with my Cricut haul!!!

CRICUT MYSTERY BOX FILLED WITH TONS OF GOODIES!  SO MUCH FUN!!

I’M BAAAACK!

After taking a week off because of medical issues, I am back and jumping in with both feet!

Today’s video is pretty cool – I am trying to cover as much as I can, for each cutter that I have.  I have the newest Cricut Maker, Silhouette Cameo 3 as well as the Brother Scan N Cut DX225 Innovis edition.  If you have one of those cutters, you will be in luck for getting videos!  Ha!

IN this video, I create an SVG in Hatch – there are more than one way to do this – and I am using Corel to help me create it.  Because why not?  Corel is there, might as well use it!

Once I have my nice SVG – remember that it is a SCALABLE vector graphic, so you will be able to resize it – I take it in to each of the 3 different software and make a cut file!

So easy, and your applique will never look the same!!

Enjoy!
