Dreaming Tree Gatefold card and some news!

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking through my links.

I have some exciting news to share with you!

I am very happy to announce that my Facebook group "Cricut Explore and More" and Dreaming Tree are teaming up!

Leo from Dreaming Tree has offered to sponsor our group with fantastic offers and WEEKLY giveaways... for an entire year! They will be our official 3D paper project sponsor and we will be Dreaming Tree’s preferred Cricut Facebook group!  How cool is that? ☺

Each week we will have two $6.99 gift cards to give away. Right now our members can enter the draw by taking part in our Green challenge. That means make a project with a green theme.

That could be using the colour green, or St Pats day, or frogs, crickets (or Cricuts as it's Cricut's 10 year anniversary) or nature.... whatever fits the green theme!

This challenge closes on Tuesday so hurry and request to join so you can enter!

Does this mean you can't share any other 3D projects in the group? Not at all! You are still welcome to share projects no matter where you purchase the files!

But… if you haven't used Dreaming Tree's files... please give them a try. We know that you'll love them! They have awesome 3D projects and you’ll find an assembly video for each one!

Here's the link to the Dreaming Tree website. Please be sure to sign up for their newsletter:

And here's their Facebook page. Don't forget to "Like" it!

If you have crafting friends who love Dreaming Tree too, then now is the time to add them to our group.  We'd love to have them see what a happy and welcoming group we have created. Admins Jess, Janis, Jooniper and I are looking forward to seeing you and your crafty friends. ☺

So now onto my project!

Here are two versions of the Dreaming Tree Floral Gatefold Card.

This is such an easy card to put together so I have no excuse for putting the front panels on upside down. Other than I had friends over for a night of crafting... and wine may have been consumed. ☺

I love this card and I know I'll be making many more of them as it's so versatile!

You can purchase this card from Dreaming Tree right here: Floral Gatefold Card SVG

Or as part of a 3 card bundle here: Gatefold Cards SVG bundle

I again reached for the beautiful Cricut Pearl paper for this project. The colours were Cocoa and Scarlet.

Happy crafting!  ♥

Daisy Cascade card from Dreaming Tree

Here's my first of the fabulous new cascade cards from Dreaming Tree.

These are super easy to make and have a huge wow factor!!

The yellow (sorry, the photo isn't true to colour) is Cricut Pearl paper that I embossed with my Cuttlebug.

It has a lovely sheen and embosses really well! The colour I used is called Sunshine Pearl. That's the top colour in the picture of the Pearl Paper Sampler.

Here it is again, this time embossed with the Old Paris Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Exciting news for those who use my Cricut fonts list

Well, it's exciting for me anyway. And hopefully you too!

Many of you use my list that has a small preview of each Cricut font.

I started that list back in 2012 and there have been over 40,000 views so far!

While that list is great I have always wanted something that would give a bigger preview of the font. But I didn't want people to have to print it out unless they really wanted to.

Hopefully what I'm sharing with you today will fit that bill!

The new list comes to you as a flip book. You can view it online and you also have the choice to download it as a PDF!

This baby is over 200 pages long! Once you download it you can choose which pages you want to print. Or print them all!

And you can view it on your mobile device too!

And... it's still FREE!

You'll find the link to the book at the bottom of this post.

I had the members of Cricut Explore and More beta test it this week and so far there haven't been any issues. But please let me know if you have a problem using it or if you find any errors/omissions.

When you open the link the book will load. Some of the "writing style" fonts will look slightly pixelated. But if you click on that page, after a few seconds it will show the text clearly.

And... you can search by cartridge name! You'll find the search box in the bottom right corner if you're using a PC/Mac. If you're using an iOS or Android device please see the "Request Desktop Site" info below. You'll need to do that to see the search box.

If you're using an iPad/iPhone and want to save the book to iBooks here's what you need to do.

(These instructions use the Safari browser)

  • First open it by tapping on the link above. 
  • When it opens tap the upload arrow. (1)
  • Tap the "Request Desktop Site". (You may have to scroll over to see that.) (2)

  • It will open in the Yumpu site and you'll see a Download option at the bottom.  (1) Tap that.

  • Then wait (and possibly wait and wait if you have slow internet like me!) while it downloads. 

When it has finished downloading it will open to this screen.

  • Tap the screen and click Open in "iBooks"

For the Android users out there you will use a similar method.

Here's a screen shot from Nicolle from Cricut Explore and More. Thanks Nicolle!

So... here's the book! Enjoy!!

Happy crafting!  ♥

Two new Facebook groups for you to check out!

I know that there are a lot of crafters out there who like to sell their projects. 

But starting and running a craft business can be tricky!

So let me introduce you to a great friend Joy Gjersvold who together with Barbara Kollmer Guy runs an awesome marketing group called "The Joy of Marketing your Crafts."

If you're looking for tips on how to best market your products, who to organise your displays and how best practices for running your business then you'll love this group! 

Please check it out if you're a seller or thinking about it! I promise you you'll learn a lot! 

The next group... is mine! ☺ 

I have started my own group called Cricut Explore and More. Along with some of my favorite Cricuteers - Janis Bertram DeGouff, Jooniper Parker, and Jess Slater I'm heading up what we hope to be an amazing Cricut community!

If you're looking for a positive, uplifting, and super helpful group when it comes to all things Cricut I hope you'll take a moment to head on over and check us out! 

Here's the link to join. Hope to see you there!
