Cricut Access Challenge: Bay State Love

As you probably already know, I was born and raised in one of the best cities in the world–Boston, Massachusetts!!!

With the exception of a few years away for school, Massachusetts has been my lifelong home and I’ve always, always loved it here! I simply wouldn’t live anywhere else!

fullsizeoutput_ee1I’m very proud of Massachusetts’ history of being the “birthplace of the Revolution” and I have always cheered on our progressive leaders as we continue to be first in so many things.

And, of course, I have passed my love and pride for the Commonwealth on to MO!  Recently MO’s teacher told us that he and his classmates were invited by the new state rep to tour the capital building and take a tour of the State House.  Doesn’t that sound like a lot of fun??

And, well….OF COURSE, I needed to figure out a way to put my Cricut spin on the upcoming tour, didn’t I?

fullsizeoutput_ee4Thankfully I knew that the good folks over at Cricut have recently added a ton of new state-related design files to Cricut Access.

In fact, I think every one of the US states are now represented!  Thank you, Anna Rose!

So here are just a few of the wonderful images I found for Massachusetts:

Aren’t they adorable??  And lots of great choices, too! 🙂

I’m digging the mandala-like designs, which will be perfect as a car decal.  And I’ve decided that the simple line drawings with the capital in the banner will make the perfect T-shirt decoration for MO’s special State House Tour Day, too.

I’ll be sure to post pictures of MO’s classmates at the State House after their field trip!

Which state are you from?  Do you love it as much as I love Massachusetts?

If so, now is the time to show the world!!!

And, don’t forget now…ALL of these lovely state-based images are available for FREE to all Cricut Access subscribers…so this might be the perfect time for you to consider a subscription!  (If you decide to order, please use my affiliate link, which is here: https://www.shareasale.com/u.cfm?d=327204&m=51766&u=1089398)

Cricut Access Challenge: Versatile Greeting Cards

I am SOOOO jazzed to share this Mix & Match All Occasion Cards design file, because it’s amazingly versatile.

With this one file, you are able to make dozens of different cards, because you can swap out the greeting, change the pattern of the card base or even offset the lace doily for added visual interest. Oh! And did I mention the cherry blossom? You could use white, blush or any pink shade.

Of all my hundreds (yes, hundreds!) of Design Space files, this is probably the one I turn to the most for making Instagram worthy greeting cards.

And it’s not because this project is difficult.

When you look at the DS file you will notice it’s quite simple. It’s a basic building block file.

All you do is add your imagination and just like that you could have a boxful of Greetings ready to send on a moments notice.

A few comments about this project, which is–of course–a Cricut Access Challenge project:

-I prefer cutting the card bases in multiples of two, because then you can use one sheet of 12″ x 12″ patterned paper and get two cards

-I used Cricut gel pens on my tags and they work swell!

-Because I don’t like to waste paper, I tend to isolate each element of this file so I can cut an entire page full. For example, I cut out all the bases first, then I do several pages of the tags in different colors and so forth.  I use Michael’s brand Recollections solid color paper in 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper for the tags and cherry blossom pieces and I am able to fit 8 or so of each piece on one sheet of paper.

-I use Cricut Card stock for the doilies, because they are so lace-y and I want them to be as sturdy as possible.  Cricut card stock is *very* sturdy and a 12″ x 12″ sheet will fit 9 doilies of this size. Don’t forget to use the Custom Setting “Cardstock For Intricate Cuts” to ensure the doilies cut perfectly.

-When removing cuts from your mat, always try to remove the mat from the material rather than removing the material from the mat. Cricut mats are made to *bend* just for this purpose! By bending the mat, your cuts won’t rip when you are trying to remove them and you won’t get frustrated either!

-These Cards are A2 size, which is a standard size and fits A2 sized envelopes, which you can buy in bulk at your local craft store.  I often don’t bother making my own envelopes if my cards are sized in a standard size, which these ones are.

-Give yourself permission to experiment with patterns, colors and placement of your elements. You’ll be happy you did!

Here’s the Pinterest pin for this project:  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/273030796146076129/

And here is the Design Space file in Cricut Community:  https://design.cricut.com/#/design/126421934

I do hope you will try this amazing file so you will see what I mean about it being simple but so completely versatile!

Now. “Go Forth and Cricut, my friends!”

Best always,

Miss Rita
