Letter of the Day at My Cricut Craft Room

Good morning, everyone! Today is another design team post for My Cricut Craft Room! Today's theme is the letter 'T'. I was thrilled to do this post because I have the perfect project for you today-shirt notecards with a colorful tie!! As a member of the LDS church, I see a LOT of missionaries in white shirts and very colorful ties. These notecards are perfect for sending a little note to a missionary, for a missionary to leave as a 'sorry we miss you' card, or as a birthday/father's card for any dad or grandfather. This card is so versatile and I love the way they turned out with those ties!

You can find the images and card base on page 75 of the Artiste handbook. The cards, ties, and pockets were all cut at 4 inches. (Make sure you do not have the Real Size button activated or the ties and pockets really will be 4 inches tall and will not fit on the cards.)

Festive Friday at My Cricut Craft Room

Hey, everyone! Today is my first post as a member of the My Cricut Craft Room Design Team!! Today is Festive Friday and the theme is 'Past Halloween Items'. Last Halloween, I was just starting to learn how to put my Cricut Expression to good use and I didn't have many cartridges. My hubby had also just bought me my Gypsy and I was having fun playing around with both machines. I came up with a really cute idea that can be one of two things: a treat box or an LED tealight candle holder!

First I cut out two Jack o' Lanterns at 3 inches. Using my Gypsy, I cut two more without the face features.That way I can layer them without the yellow showing through the face features. (You could also use the shadow feature, but I wanted my pumpkins to mimic carved pumpkins.) 

Then, using the Cricut Craft Room Basics cartridge, I created the box piece for my treat box wielding together a bunch of rectangles.

Next I started putting the box together.
