Cricut in 2020

It's been tough this year trying to be creative. Though, I have enjoyed many virtual crops, classes and challenges. Thank you to everyone who has hosted and participated in this type of event! They have been inspiring.

I would never have imagined a year ago, that I would use my Cricut to decorate for my daughter's drive thru graduation or to decorate the outside of my neighbours' windows to mark their quarantine birthdays. I'm grateful that I can easily do projects like this in 2020.

I have also spent much time this fall, using my Cricut to label all types of social distancing measures in schools. I have cut hundreds of vinyl floor arrows, hundreds of cohort identifiers, thousands of paper tangrams and thousands of vinyl chair place markers. My Cricut has been so busy that I borrowed one from a friend and had two going at once. (To do this, you need separate devices with design space running.) I guess what I may have lacked in creativity, I made up for in health and safety of students and school staff. I typically cut large quantities of diecuts on my machine but not like this fall. My Cricut Explore (first edition) owes me nothing and I will eventually upgrade to a Maker.

It has been a strange nine months.

Stay home, stay safe and craft.

Christmas Projects from 2019

Our province is in lockdown right now so I really have no excuse to get my Christmas cards done. I'm currently procrastinating by rounding up last year's projects.

Our Haunted Home

So, this is a layout about the decor in our home in October. Every October, our daughter pulls out the Halloween bin and decorates the house. She loves this task and I adore seeing what she comes up with. One day, when our kids are older with their own families, I hope they remember the fun we had at Halloween.

Pumpkin Carving 2019

I always need to scrapbook the kids' pumpkin creations! For this layout, I cut a bunch of different pumpkins in a variety of orange scraps of paper.

Pup-kin Spice

It's a good thing Chloe likes wearing costumes, well doesn't mind wearing costumes. This layout is pretty simple, all I did was leave out the letter M from a Cricut cut for the title.

Shopping at Spirit Halloween

It's an annual tradition for us! The pattern paper is by Close To My Heart with the best zip strip ever with Halloween sentiments! Zip strip is the bit on the edge of a loose paper for identifying the product name and number. Some companies take advantage of this and create patterns that papercrafters can use. Most companies just show what is on the other side.

Zumba Halloween Party layout

I have been busy this week scrapbooking pictures from Halloween 2019. The zumba ladies wore the best costumes for our class last year AND they danced in them!
