Thursday Tutorial: Cutting Stamped Images with Your Explore

Good Thursday morning!  Amy here with another useful video tutorial--this one on using the Cricut Explore to cut out your stamped images instead of fussy cutting.  Hallelujah!  It's a little long at about 17.5 minutes, but I think you'll find it was worth it.

I hope you've enjoyed this video--please join us next week for another Thursday Tutorial!

Quick Tip Tuesday

Hello my fellow Cricuteers!!

Liz here to share with you another quick tip. This one shared by, "...Cricut Iron-on Glitter in Gold is the easiest and fastest way to add sparkle and shine to clothing and home decor without a hint of the mess loose glitter leaves behind ...." so true!! LOVE IT!!!

"...However, because of all that shine, it is sometimes difficult to see where your Cricut design starts and stops. An easy solution? Pop in a Cricut marker, load your material and press "Cut." This won't cut the material, it will only create a tracing for you to easily determine the negative space to weed. 

Then, without removing your mat from the machine, insert your Cricut blade and press "Cut" again. This will successfully cut your design, and you've got a map to what you need to weed!

ps- Each Cricut Iron-on comes with a handy guide for selecting the perfect pressure and blade depth. Use it-- and don't forget to mirror your text & design..."

That is it for now as always thanks for stopping by!
Have a super crafty day!
