Welcome to another challenge for Exploring Cricut and More. This is the first challenge that is open to all die cut machines!!! My project is the first HTV shirt I have tried with the Silhouette Cameo and I am so pleased how this turned out. I used Heat Transfer Vinyl from Expressions Vinyl and it was so great and easy to use. I just used my household iron and a cotton shirt and it looked so professional. My little granddaughter loved it and will wear to preschool this week. Now I will be making more shirts. The svg files were from the Silhouette store and the item numbers are in the picture. I got the little shirt marked down for $2 and so this was a bargain for sure!!!

Welcome to my Saturday Silhouette project. I am working on my little granddaughters album, only a little behind, I am doing 2011! I am almost finished with hers and will start my older granddaughter Mary-Kate's next. Today I did pages with the great svg cuts from Miss Kate Cuttables. This is My Mom and Me set. I love all the great flowers and made several to fill out the page. Be sure to visit and check out all her great svg files and remember she gives a free file daily and has some great daily deals!

Today I am filling in for Rae Ann who is a little under the weather. We have changed our format at Exploring Cricut and More and now you can use any die cutting machine. Today I am sharing a project that I created using the Silhouette Cameo and svg files from Miss Kate Cuttables. I love her files and I used the Little Artist file. I just enlarged it a little to make it work for my pictures. I used some background paper I got at Michaels and love how it turned out. These files are so fun to work with. I used cardstock from Michaels too.

Welcome to the Sunday post for Exploring Cricut and More. We have changed our format and now you can use any die cut machine along with cartridges, svgs, pnc and other files. Our focus is still on die cuts. Please check out the information on the blog. Today I did a Cricut project with my Expressions 2 machine and used the cartridges Art Philosophy and Cricut Alphabet. This is the last winter thing I intend to make (I hope) cause I am thinking Spring!!! A winter storm is suppose to hit us today and hope it is the last!!! I cut the tag 2.25 and 2.5 inches from Art Philosophy along with the snowflakes cut at 2 inches. From Cricut Alphabet I cut the flourish swirls at 2 inches. The paper is from my stash and from Bo Bunny. I only used scraps for this card and the pearls and jewels were from my stash of goodies. I shared my craft room this week and now I am organized and ready to get busy!!!

I went to Ikea and got a new desk and some cabinets to finish organizing all my goodies so I wanted to share my room before I totally destroy it working again lol. These cabinets in front of my desk are from Ikea and match my desk and I love them. They are big and hold lots of goodies.

Time for a challenge over at Exploring Cricut. This week the challenge is to create a bag, tag, or box and include a ribbon. It is a fun challenge and just let your imagination and your Cricut cartridges get busy!!! Since in a couple months, my oldest son is going to turn 40, still trying to figure out how he got so old!, and I decided to make a Over the Hill bag and gift card. I will put a little gag gift in it since the boys like money for their birthdays now that they are older. I used the cartridge Life's a Party. I customed the mat Over the Hill at 7.5 x 9.5 to fit the bag I got at the Dollar Tree. I cut the Big 40 at 5 inches and the little gift card at 3.5. I used cardstock from Michaels and ribbons that I had in my stash. I stickled the 40 and popped it up. Join us by Saturday, March 1 and link your project.
