The kids are out of school, lots of backyard bbq and Summer parties, now is a great time to spruce up the bathroom and be ready for the parade of people using your guest bathroom.

I’m Maggie to share a quick tutorial using fabric and off course your Cricut. I purchased a trio of frames from Salvation Army the size fits my bathroom perfectly. This trio of frame is to match the new curtains I’ve created you can find the steps in Scrap n Art Magazine.

The Ladybugs On Parade Pillow – Excellent Gift Idea!

Hi, it’s Kendra here again and I am so excited to be bring you a project using both the Yudu and the Cricut Expression!  The Ladybugs On Parade Pillow!

With Christmas just around the corner and everyone scrambling for ideas for homemade Christmas gifts, I wanted to try and bring you a new way of using the Yudu and the Cricut together.  If you look closely, you will notice that the black is all Screen Printed with the Yudu and the Ladybug wings are cut out of fabric using the Cricut Expression and the Walk In My Garden Cricut Cartridge.  I really love the dimension that this effect gives.  Now that I have created this project, my mind is racing at the possiblities!  I can’t wait to get started on my next project!
