Cricut Lite Live Simply~Thursday Expressions

OK I know, I know....It's been too too too long since I've done a Cricut video....I needed a little break, but I'm back and ready to create (or Cricut).


I really love using pattern paper when I'm working with the Cricut, it gives it the little extra pop. My secret is...I try to pick papers from the same paper collections. For the most part they pretty much already coordinate and make picking pattern paper so much easier.

  10. Hey - great card but even better is that I learned something! I knew that you could hold your stylus on the image to see it BUT I DIDN'T KNOW YOU COULD EXPAND IT TO MAKE IT LARGER - can't wait to try that! 65 yo eyes make it difficult to see those little tiny images! LOL!
    Thanks,
