time for updates on your gypsy and design studio

On your computer screen you have the box that says cricut sync.....  click on this to update your gypsy.   If you have Design studio...  go to the cricut.com site.

have you registered all your cartridges?? gypsy machine??  cricut machines???  They have been emphasizing on registering....  I can this could be a hint.. perhaps.  i don't know but it can't hurt only help you if something was to happen to a cartridge, etc..

sharing a few birthday decorations using the cricut cartridges

Rock Princess Cricut cartridge used.. Close to my heart heavenly blue, cocoa and white card-stock and ink were used.   Page to Fit on my Cricut expressions was 11inches.   I planned the letters for happy birthday and Kiana on my Gypsy using the Rock Princess cartridge as well. Inside the letters of p,a,r, etc.. you get an extra cut out of an heart. (great for future use)  I made a template of the banner on my gypsy at 11inches and fit the letters so they fit nicely.   On the Cricut Rock princess overlay..  I picked #30.  Kiana wanted the peace Sign for her birthday.

oops... I had an extra piece covering the "a".. sorry :)

#9 kiana birthday age

graphically speaking cartridge.  I put this on my gypsy and slanted it on the 12x12 screen to get the most of the size to hang up on the wall.   I then took my Smooches and my stickles and a few of the close to my heart markers and went on a decorating bin of various colors....  This was fun!!   I used the cocoa and heavenly blue card stock from Close to My heart for the background.

Matthew 25;40 vinyl on wall....

Plantin Schoolbook was used.  I planned it out on my Gypsy on a 12x24 mat.  I used the black vinyl.

I pulled the excess vinyl off (picture below).  Go slow.....  weeding is then next.  I actually cut out the excess vinyl (before peeling off) as this gives me some extra vinyl for smaller projects.

see all this extra vinyl that was pulled off...  it's so sticky! making sure that the sticky vinyl is AWAY from your current project.  hint.. hint..

UP.. up.. up.. on the wall the vinyl saying went....  I still have the transfer tape attached to the vinyl saying.  

see.. I'm still up there.  pull the transfer tape off very slowly.  have a credit card or use your fingers to rub the transfer tape.   take your time....

all done.  Aren't these words of Jesus beautiful!
WEEDING:  is taking the vinyl off your project (slowly) and then taking either a small needle, or any small pointy object and pulling all the extra vinyl from in between the letters 9a,'s, o,'s etc..)
