CRICUT: Free Centre step card

If you're a card maker you've probably been on the lookout for different types of card folds. I've been doing the same thing and was happy to find an amazing resource of templates created by Penny Wessenauer.

I am so happy to let you know that I have been in contact with Penny and she has given me permission to create cutting files for her templates and freely share them with you!

To get the ball rolling I have created a Centre Step Card.

Here's the card I made using the cutting file:



Some instructions:



The cutting file can currently only be used in Cricut Design Space with the Explore.

Here's the link to the Design Space file: 

A huge thank you to Penny for allowing me to share her files with you in this way!



Happy crafting!  ♥

CRICUT: Free File Friday


This weeks free Design Space file is based on an awesome project by Sam from Pootles Papercraft.

I've been trawling the internet looking for ideas for our Free File Friday and came across Sam's blog. Can I just say I want to make every... single... thing... she has shared!!!

I contacted Sam and asked if it was okay for me to create a Cricut Design Space cut file from one of her projects to share with all of you... and she said yes!

So, without further ado... let me introduce you to the Pootles Papercraft Tea Bag Holder Folder!




They will make the cutest gifts to give to friends or family. Each one holds 4 of the Twinings size tea bag envelopes. (Well, they used to be envelopes. Seems Twinings has cut costs and don't pack their teabags in those cute little envelopes anymore...)

Here's a side view of the holder...





Inside you'll find four of the cutest little envelopes each one containing a tea bag!



And here's Sams versions...



I found they also fit coffee sachets. And imagine one filled with Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares! Drool....

These are the pieces you'll find in the cut file. It might look complicated, but it really is a simple project to make!



You'll notice in Sams video she uses flowers as the envelope closures.  I create my files using the free Cricut Craft Room Basics cartridge so that anyone with an Explore can cut it but unfortunately there's no flower on that cart so I used a circle instead. But you can hide or delete those circles and add whatever shape you like in their place.

Here's the link to the Design Space file: https://us.cricut.com/design/#/canvas/project/19332683

And make sure you watch Sams video! She shows you exactly how to put this beautiful project together! Here's the link to the project: 



Please leave Sam some blog love while you're there. And if you happen to live in Wales, UK and need a Stampin' Up consultant... then look no further!

A Public Service Announcement.... you will most likely lose hours at Sams blog.... I watched video after video after video!! You have been warned! :)

I hope you enjoy this weeks file. 'Til next week....


Happy crafting!  ♥
