The next video series is....

Drum roll please :) 

Cricut Explore!!!!

It was a tie for which series to do next; Cricut Explore and Silhouette? I decided to do both :)
We'll start with the Explore series this week and then move on to the Silhouette after that.

I'm in the process of filming the Explore series now and can tell you there are at least 8 videos...and that doesn't include a few project videos either. Stay tuned later this week for the first video.

Just a note...
While working on the series, I will not be posting Stampin' On Friday videos. This will give me time for editing videos, writing blog posts, and answering comments.

Videos will be posted 2x's a week (maybe 3) during the series.

Thank you for all the well wishes on my dad. Unfortunately he wasn't able to come home on Friday. Fingers crossed it's today :)

Have a great day and see you back here soon :)
Before we get started...Here are a few deals going on at Cricut:

  1. Hopes for your dad coming home today. No one wants to be in the hospital.

  2. Praying for your dad. Thank you so much for posting videos! It helps so much!

  3. I'm anxious to see your videos on both machines, since I do own both. Silhouette has been mostly sitting dormant since I got the Explore. I'm sure it will love being used again. But the Explore is just so much easier in many respects, even if we don't have the offset feature. Sending best get well wishes to your dad.

  4. What great timing! I've been trying to decide whether to upgrade from my Expression to the Explore Air. I got an E2, but with all the complaining I heard about the learning curve, and some other limitations, I never even plugged it in (hanging head in shame). My family all start asking what we want for Christmas long about October, so I'm hoping to get all my questions answered about the Explore so I can tell them in time to catch the sales. I do want to stick with my Cricut since I own WELL over 100 cartridges. Let's see, if my hubby gets a new iPad for Christmas and I get the Explore Air....well, that sounds like a wonderful combination. Looking forward to your videos.

  5. Hoping your dad is better soon. Thank you for the Explore series. I received one as a gift from my kids last Christmas and have only used it a handful of times. I know there is so much it can do!

  6. Sending good thoughts and wishes for your Dad to be able to come home soon. It is tough on all of you, I'm sure. I am really looking forward to the Explore videos and inspiration. I don't have the Silhouette but many of the projects may translate to either machine, so it will be fun for all of us, I think! I am having a lot of fun with my Minc, and cut out some shapes on the E2 to foil; they turned out really pretty, and I just used some toner paper that I made myself. Thanks for making the videos for us!

  7. Can't wait for both! I have both machines, but have to admit Silhouette is gathering dust since I got the explore! actually I have 2! I love it so much. Pretty much just use the cameo for sticky flock. If I ever figure out how to do sticky flock on the Explore, its goodbye Silhouette. Unless I fall in love all over again after your projects!! thanks for all your inspiration!
