I have recently decided to use a planner to budget and plan my meals a head of time. I used to keep all of my bills on a schedule using a planner but fell of the wagon about a year ago. Along the way I discovered the Create 365 planner by MMBI. Of course I was super excited as I love to make scrapbook as well as just being crafty. So I purchased the big planner from Hobby Lobby using a 40% off coupon code and got a few packs of stickers and an expence planner at Michaels as they had 40% off all planner supplies. So far I have created 2 weeks I have been using Cricut design space and my Cricut print then cut feature to create my layouts. Week 1 I did a whimsical them and week 2 I did a theme based on the 4th of July. I chose to go with pinup and all the girls I found are wearing red, white and blue. I think both themes came out super adorable. Im currently working a tutorial showing how to use png's to make stickers with your Cricut.  I tried out the printable sticker paper on week…

I highly recommend you try this one its a multi use tool comes with several tips and caring case.

I used my Cricut to cut out the letter T I then traced around it with a pencil and started to fill it in with the heat tool. there was a few spots in the wood where the lines were that I had to go over more than once but no big deal. as for the Hot stamps I would turn it off take a towel folded several times to remove a stamp and ad…

Welcome back

Its been far to long. Im very excited to be back in the crafty world not to the extent I was before but Im here to share my projects. The first thing I wanted to share was my Cricut Explore Air 2 In the color Lilac. Its absolutely stunning The photos does it no justice. I purchased mine from HSN for around $239 after a coupon. hobby lobby, Michaels and Cricut all have it for 249 but I chose HSN to take advantage of there monthly payments 

Im loving the Cricut design space it has changed in the last few years. I was very please to see that all my cartridges I uploaded years ago was still there waiting for me. Its so exciting that we can now use our own files to create something special. The pinterest feel can suck me in for hours with all the cute Ideas. 
Although the Cricut has made some major changes and I haven't used one in about 2 years or so I jumped right back in like I never left. The New machine is super easy to use and the design space is easy and fun to use as…
