Free cuts for Cricut January 10-16th

on January 22, 2013


Good Afternoon everyone! Today I thought I would tell you about something pretty cool that makes having a cricut super fun, best part about it is… it’s FREE!!

Yep that is right, completely free. The cricut cutting room gives you a new cartridge to try out each week. You guys remember my very first post with the 3d trees, they were that weeks free cartridge. Pretty neat, huh?! Here was the 10th-16th cartridge.

It has Valentine’s, St. Patty’s and Easter on this set as well and since Valentine’s is next in line, I decided to do something with that.  So I am making a garland, I really just wanted to play with the new cartridges and try out the cute little sayings. It is a simple garland but you can always add embellishments, textures and anything else you want.

Here are some of the images I cut, I thought they turned out pretty neat. I especially love the “toad-ally yours”

I also picked up some mini clothes pins ($2 at hobby lobby) and some foam heart stickers (500 for $2.99 plus 30% off) to hang them from the twine I was going to use. I adhered the foam stickers to the clothes pins for some cute Valentine’s detailing.

    As a witness and holder of the camera, they did turn out pretty cool. And how can you go wrong with free stuff. Free stuff is the best especially when every cartridge costs about $50. Yikes.
