I love my explore and used it to cut the Fairy cottage from SVGcuts (affiliate link*).
I have embossed a lot of the panels and inked the edges of all of them. It has taken some time to put together and I have had to take it apart as I put some of it together wrong but it is finally finished so I thought I would show a video as well as some pics. I have used Close to my Heart papers, inks and embossing folders diamond, woodgrain and quatrefoil. If you would like to look/shop at Close to my Heart go here.

Catch up

Well I seem to have woken up and the year has almost gone. I have been doing a bit more like meeting the awesome couple who own Three Little Whimzee -Juliette and Deon. I asked them if they could bring in the Explore air and wowser they looked into it and did. Yes we had the Cricut Explore air for release at SENZ in Auckland in July. Well since then we have gone to Porirua and the Cricut Explore air machines are selling like hot cakes to hungry people.

I have done 2 retreats with friends and now I am starting Cricut Design Space Education. The Cricut Explore range of machine works on the program Design Space and although it is very easy to use there are heaps of things you can do. I have now got events in Hamilton on the 15th and 16th October and in Wellington on the 29th October. If you are interested in the events go to www.Ohsomanycrafts.com and click on the calendar tab. There is also quite a bit of info on the website as well as a form for registering if you would like to do a seminar on Design Space.

Some people in Auckland want an event as well so just starting to sort dates. Another exciting thing is that Madge and I are going to Australia Cricut and Craft hunting in Novmber.

I have been doing Joonipers fun fold card Palooza cards and although I have not done all of them yet I am working my way through them. I have done a few other things though like putting up some of my designs in Primrose and they as well as others can upload their Cricut projects and make the ones already there.

 I have been beta testing the android app for design space and it is coming along well.

I'll add some pics of what I have been up to.

Pumpkin favor box by Dreaming Tree (Kitty box)

This is the "Pumpkin Favor Bag from Dreaming Tree. It is a free file so check out my affiliate link here. I made the first one and he was cute. Then I decided to play around with him and make him smaller. I did, the striped one is 3.75 inches. I decided to do print and cut on the Cricut Explore and used an animal print from JT (an Imagine cartridge). His eyes were cute but Jess Slater made these very cute eyes and I thought these would make it even more cute. I flattened the eyes to a print and then attached them to the cat box base. I had a bit of a hiccup because I had forgotten to change the scoring lines to score and when I attached them to the base they disappeared. It sorted itself once I had them as scoring lines. I also added little paws to the striped one. I have added whiskers to the orange one and since photographing I have also added them to the striped one. They are super cute and I can see making more.

Hydrangea Box from Dreaming Tree

love the file from Dreaming Tree called Love you mum bundle. I have made the first project from the 3 and wanted to put it up. So here are the photos of the Hydrangea boxes. They are about 4 inches high in the box so can hold a packet of seeds or bulbs. Check out the file here. I used glue dots to put the pearls onto the flowers and then again to put the flowers onto the balls. As I had a nice pattern on my paper I used in the tray I didn't use the layer for the tray
