Who Needs Labels

make it monday blog hopHello there and welcome to our Make it Monday blog hop I hope you enjoyed Alice’s post on how to use artwork on your layouts. My post is all about my aha moment. I am in way to many Facebook groups but that is a story for another post. Any who I always see people asking about labels and where can they get labels for their project life. I was wondering this to and then the light bulb went on!

I figured out how to make my own because who who wants to spend anywhere from $3 to $5 dollars a pop for some labels, not me. Lucky for me I have a Cricut and the awesome Art Philosophy cartridge from Close To My Heart! I also have the Cricut Craft Room Basics, which everyone that uses Cricut Craft Room has. So I figured that I could create my own labels in the Craft Room and get them cut out. Not only could I create my own labels but I could also cut them out in different colors. All I need is cardstock, my Cricut and a little bit of time!

I sat down with my computer and a one track mind of getting some labels created I spent some time in the craft room and made some labels. It was not very time consuming and before I knew it I had a ton of labels cut out and just waiting for me to get scrappy. I cut all my labels out in white but this doesn’t mean that my labels have to stay white!

I went all the way back to last year to get a layout done so that I could show you the labels that I have created. Now I created labels that can be used for 12×12 layouts or traditiaonal layouts as well as for pocket scrapbooking. I just happened to come across these pictures that I took of my daughter learning how to to tie her shoes all by herself and felt that these photos deserved a 12×12 layout.

My favorite part about these labels is that I can make them whatever color I need them to be! Now for the good news I have already gone through all the trouble of creating the cut files for these labels so I am passing them on to you!

Does Your Cricut Whisper?

cricut whispersLet me tell you when I first got my Cricut Expression 2 it definitely did not talk to me and it sure as heck did not whisper to me! Then the awesome Cara Miller sent me a whisper and now I can make my Cricut sing to me! Ok, not really but I definitely understand my Cricut a whole lot more and know all the things that my Cricut can do for me.

The bottom line is that these whispers that Cara offers are just awesome and if you don’t have one you should definitely go purchase one. I bet even if you are a seasoned Cricut user there are things that you could learn from Cara’s whispers. You are probably wondering at this point what is a whisper and how does it work by now!

The whisper is a little booklet that Cara has put together with all the tips and tricks you will ever need in order to use your Cricut and she has these Whispers for all the cricut machines and even the cricut craft room!

Cara’s little video here can you tell you exactly what the whispers are and how they work!

What do you think? Do you need a whisper? If so go grab one here!
