I bought this baby about two months ago and it has remained in the box.
Not because I didn’t want to use it. I was so excited when I bought this machine. But between tinsel & twig, my blog, the holidays and the clean up, I haven’t had a chance to use it! So it’s been sitting in my room and every day, for two months. I’ve admired the picture on the unopened box.
Until today. Today I opened that box and pulled out this wonderful machine called the Cricut.
And boy was it fun!
While working on Little Man #1′s scrapbook today I decided there was no better time than now to pull this baby out and give it a try. So here is what I did.
Every May we pick strawberries locally. This is the page I was working on today.
P.S. this was May 2009. I’m sooooooo far behind. I was pregnant with Little Man #2 in these pics!
This thing is so easy.
Load the paper (stuck on the sticky mat) enter your text and press cut.
Peel back the sheet of paper.
Using the spatula, remove your letters.
I arranged the letters on the paper and used a glue pen adhesive.
Love this thing!
BTW, if you have a Cricut and need cartriges, Michael’s had a bunch on clearance today for $9.99!! That’s marked down from $69.99!!
