I am so jealous! I won't be able to order my Cricket for a few more weeks now. Please post lots of videos and instructions on what you are doing. What cartridges do you have? Are the pictures on the back of the box all of the images on the cartridge or are there more than that?

If you do Ebay you can get a good deal there. I have... Walk in the garden,mini monograms,and graphically speaking. Yes, they have what is shown on the back of the boxes with many possibilities. I'm learning,slowly but surely, housework has gone to the Have you watched any of The Pink Stamper video? I posted a link here under the title ..Anticipating the arrival.

Hey, Lizzy! I feel like I have a new friend :) Yes, I watch all of The Pink Stamper Cricut videos. I told my husband by the time I get a Cricut, I should know how to use it.

Are you on the email list for Cricut? I got an email today about an offer they are having. I don't know if you are interested or not, but here's the link in case you are:

I'm looking at ordering the Cricut Expression. I keep getting on line to see who has the best deals and bundles. I can't wait!!

About the blog layout... thanks for the compliment! I used a free layout from and then went and customized some of the colors. Knowing me, I'll be changing it often. :)

Can't wait to see a Cricut video from you! What have you made today?

Lizzy said...

Thanks for the link. I have ordered from craft-e corner and Customs crops,and ebay. They all have good prices on the cartridges. I haven't even played with my cricut today, can you belive that? I wish there were somewhere to take classes around here. I need to be shown how to put all the shapes
Do you have a xyron, I love mine. If you don't and are looking into getting one go to they have some great prices.
Whew! It's hot here today!
Anyways, I'm not sure I can do the videos. I need to ask The Pink Stamper some questions on that. Have you made any? I wonder what kind of video camera she uses.

Janis said...

I just noticed that you responded to my comment. I didn't get an email notification... hmmm...

No, I don't have the Xyron. Do you think I need one? I don't have the Cuttlebug either, but I know I want one of those. I love what Robyn does to her cards with that one. Especially the Walk in My Garden card she did.

Thanks for the craft-e corner and custom crops heads up. I've never heard of them, so I'll go check them out.

The only videos I've ever done are still pictures. I did one for Christmas a couple of years ago (the first Christmas both my father's parents were gone). I made it of all the old pics from all the cousins, aunts, uncles, etc. Then we had it playing on the TV when we had our Christmas reunion. It was too funny seeing all those pics.

Go to my YouTube Channel to see one video I've done. Most of the photos in that one are from my daughter who is a photographer.

I have no idea how The Pink Stamper or Angie or any of those other talented people do their videos. We just may have to learn that, girl!

Oh, my YouTube link is

Oh heck, I just seen this reply. I don't get emails either..
I watched your video it was very moving and so well put together. I did one of my Mom and Dad shortly after they both passed away.It still brings me to tears when I watch it. I miss them both terribly and at times the grief overwhelms me, I wonder if that ever goes away?
The xyron creation station is nice I got the 900 and haven't really used it much. I need somewhere to set everything up and leave it handy. The cartridges can get pricey so if you have a store that offers the 40 or 50 % off coupons, that's the way to go.
I couldn't find Robyn's video you where referring too.
