My Cricut Explore is HERE!

My Cricut Explore is HERE and I have been super busy trying all the new features that are now available to me for crafting.  First, I want to tell you how well it cuts Stampin' Up! 80lb cardstock.  I have always had trouble with the finer more delicate cuts with my Cricut and this cardstock.  Now, no problem!  Cuts like butter!  I have also tried using the draw function to fill in lettering, then cut the shape. Journaling, anyone???  Now, I just tried cutting a vector of my Sock Monkey stamp set.  It works!!!  I need to resize the banana, hat and cupcake a wee bit, but other then that, it's ready to go!

Here is a quick video I made showing you how to do this.  Please excuse the lighting and grain. 

And here is an example of the journaling you can do:


  1. THIS IS FABULOUS!! I have GOT to learn how to do this!!

  2. thanks so much for sharing this! I like them especially the sock monkey! LOL


Thank you for leaving some love! I hope to see you back!
