Thursday Tutorial - 3D Pumpkins


Hello everyone, JoNeita from Create with JoNeita, with today's Thursday Tutorial.  I found this wonderful video by Melody Lane at Melody Lane Designs, where she shows us how to make the 3D pumpkins.  She does it a little different than how Cricut shows to do it, but I really love how her project turned out. 



When she made this video, the 3D pumpkin cut was the free cut of the week.  I am not sure it they are still free to cut, but either way you can find them on the Home for the Holidays Fall and Winter Cartridge.

Happy Halloween everyone!!! Be safe tonight as you go out to trick or treat!

Happy Crafting!!!

Halloween is just days away so I thought it was only right to share a Halloween cartridge with you.

This cartridge is absolutely amazing.  You can create so many fun things with it...card, layout, home d├ęcor.  The possibilities are endless!!  Check out these projects by these fabulous crafters:

Susan Edwards over at Busy with my Cricky created this amazing Haunted House.  Now wouldn't this piece look amazing center stage in a room?  Check out her blog for all the details!!

 
 
 
Lezlye Lauterbach over at Lezlye's Ink and Paper Creations made this adorable Witches Boot Halloween Banner!!  How cute is this!!  She used both the witches boot image and the spooky font on the cartridge!!  Check out her blog for more pictures!!
 
 
 
And our very own Angela over at Angie's Paper Passion created this amazing cupcake stand and toppers!!  Make sure you check out her blog to see exactly how she did this using the Happy Haunting Cartridge!!

Halloween/Fall Home Decor

Good morning everyone!

We hope you're enjoying this week's challenge theme of Fall/Halloween decor!  Here are a few more projects to get you in to the decorating spirit!

First I found this super wall hanging made by Kelli over at Random Thoughts of a Super Mom.  She used her Cricut and an unspecified cartridge to add the letters "boo" to some photo frames!  Any of the Cricut font cartridges would work for this!


Next up we've got this great trick or treat bucket from the Passionate Penny Pincher.  She used the Mini Monograms to create this.


Finally we've got this super cute subway art and candy jar display made by Kalyn at And I Thought I Loved You Then.  She used the Word Collage cartridge and the Cricut Alphabet cartridge.


Here are a couple more cartridges you can use for creating your Fall/Halloween decor!!

Pretty Pennants


Holidays Through the Year


We would love to have you join our challenge if you haven't already!  Happy crafting!!

Thursday Tutorial - Downloading and Uploading Craft Room Files

Hello everyone, JoNeita with Create with JoNeita here with your Thursday Tutorial video.  I recently saw where some crafters are starting to share their Cricut Craft Room files with friends and the public.  Since I had never tried to do this, I thought I would look for a video tutorial to help me figure this all out, and it has been really helpful.
 
I found this wonderful video by Melody Lane Designs, on her You Tube page.  In it, she shows us how to download, export files to and from Cricut Craft Room. She also tells a couple of tips to make things a bit easier, and how to upload your project files to the Cricut Project Center.
 
 
 
One thing to remember is that you have to own the cartridge that the file is from to be able to cut it. 
I hope this helps you all to share some projects with your fellow crafters.
Happy Crafting!!!
