Dusting Off the Cricut Machine

Messy Craft Area
Cricut Expression

It has been a while since I created with my Cricut machine and the reason being is that we were planning to move and then Covid hit. I had most of my craft items all packed away nicely in boxes for the move and all was uncluttered for the showings on the house. I have slowly started setting areas up again for crafting.

The Cricut machine(s) I have are pretty dated. There have been several upgrades since I purchased mine and when I bought mine, I actually bought two (there was this great sale, ya know). They work great with the boxful of cartridges I have BUT the new ones Explore and Maker work with Design Space (online) and my Expression doesn’t have that capability. So I can cut but I can’t design online.

So who knows I may be looking at upgrading to a new Cricut in the future!

Today I took some time and created a few cute cutouts for the Grandbabies … gingerbread people!

This gingerbread person is so cute I cut extras out at different sizes and plan to create a banner and some gift tags. I even found an apron and overalls on another cartridge and they don’t fit perfectly, but we can pretend. Reminds me of the paper cutout dolls we played with growing up.
