Tags, Bags, Boxes and More (Episode #3)

Today is just a simple video on how to put together the cute little heart bag.
TBBM is probably one of my first cartridges and I just loved the little heart bag.

and one more thing. For those that have TBBM on their Gypsy and want the manual click HERE and select the cartridge from the list....

Have a great day...


  1. Thanks Christina, i will have my fingers crossed for tomorrow

  2. I still have you and your sister in my prayers.....
    Love this heart box....would be great for a children treat box for school.....thank you for sharing...I think I'm going to play with my cart. today.....

  3. So cute! I have this cart and only used it once and that was to make a tag.

    Thanks for showing the heart because I have three special little girls I can use that for on Valentine's day.

  4. I love this cartridge. it was also one of my first ones. There are just some you have to have.
    Thank you for sharing all your ideas.

  5. Christina,
    I was speechless when I read your email concerning your sister. I had a thyroidectomy in 1980 and again in 1990 because it had grown back. Although the second surgery was more invasive, I am here, 2011 with no further issues. Please let your sister know that I am thinking about her, praying for her, and have absolute confidence that she can fully recover and go on with her life. I share this with the hope that knowing someone else has been down this road will be encouraging.

  6. You inspire me so much in your tutorials. These boxes would be great for my DGD's pre-school class.

  7. I never thought I needed this cart. Until it was retired!! Now I want it!! I am hoping I can get a gypsy before the end of next month!!
    Cute bag- I would love to make some for the grandkids for V day!

  8. Hi Christina!!!
    I am lifting your sister up in my thoughts and prayers.
    Thanks for a great video. You touched on your video one of my Biggest frustration with my Cricut. HOW TO KNOW WHAT DIRECTION TO LINE UP MY PATTERN PAPER!!! I watched and re watched your video and I am such a dork...I still don't understand. Can you please go over again how you know how to have your patterned paper facing (not only for this cart...I have this problem with all my cart. I wasts so much paper b/c I have not figured out this "TIP"
    Thanks a million,
    Valerie Martin

  9. Thank you Christina, my thoughts are with you and your sister. Can you tell us who makes the score tape and where to buy it?

  10. Christina, We will be praying for your sister. I love this cute heart bag. I have a baby bug though, would you still recommend making this bag?

    Thank you for your inspiration!


  11. I have included your family in my prayers. Thanks for continuing to make poste at this difficult time. I hope that it all works out for you and your family.

    I forgot about this bag on TBBM. Just in time for Valentine's Day projects.

    Thanks for sharing.

  12. I too am sending well wishes for a great outcome and recovery for your sister Christina.

    Also, like previously mentioned, I am also inspired by your tutorials and blog!!Thanks for all the great information!!

  13. Your tutorials always help me get so much more from my cartridges. Thanks for this series . Here is hopeing for the best for your sister.

  14. I now have a Cricut Expression! Love it even more than the baby bug. My TBBM is on my gypsy so there is no way to hit "fit to page" but can still see how big I can make it by looking on the gypsy. I tried this same heart thingy over the weekend but did not know about the window opening and where did you get the acetate for the window? Of course yours turned out much cuter than mine. Keep the videos coming. I am interested to find out what envelope goes with which card and how big do me make them.
    Also sending more prayers for your sister.

  15. This is one of the first cartridges I purchased back in 2007when I got my baby bug. Just had to have it, but have not used it as much as I thought I would. Maybe now I will be inspired. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Christina you motivated me to make my own video of my heart box. Thanks. It was fun. Making a video is a lot of work, but I love all the learning that goes with the work. I know you are very busy but if you get a chance I would love to have you take a look. I have a lot to learn about doing videos.
    I am thinking about your sister and family. Warm healing wishes to all.

  17. Thank you for these video's and we will keep praying for your sister complete healing. I am a new Gypsy owner and was wondering how to use the fit to page feature on TBBM., or for that matter on any cartridge. Thanks and blessings!

  18. Wanted you to know that I sent you a "Stylish Blog Award". Thank you.

  19. I hope your sister is doing ok. Thanks for the video these are so helpful!
