  10. So cute. I love the little lizard! I have to share though...my 2 yr old son came over and watched the video with me and he was talking to you. He was saying "okayyyy" after every step you said and he said "I have to make my card" Then when you stamped hello and said hello he said hello back! Then he danced off to the music.

  14. You make me laugh. When you freaked out I thought it was something major. lol Thanks for showing the card feature. I never thought of using the fit to page to get the measurement as close to a regular sized card. Good one!

    What a great card. I was just sitting here trying to figure out an invitation for my 5 year old twins B'day party. That will be perfect (and quick), Thankyou!!!! I have just finished watching all of your videos. I have learned so much. Thank you so much!

  23. Love it, love it, love it! I'm just now exploring that cart. If you find out how to figure the ratio for the die cut to go on the card, let us know. (Nice to know I'm not the only one who freaks when I think I've messed up.)

  29. I just made this card!! You inspire me so mucht to actually "get doing" instead of just sitting there wondering what I am going to do. It took me about 10 minutes! I used yellow where you used red (i'm trying to use up my scraps) and i used a cute little stamp that says "just wanna say hi" I'm so pleased with it :) Thanks again!

  30. Great video.. I too jumped..lol..but I thought you might of seen a snake, because I read ur post before watching the video...hehehehe.. There a couple of the cart...that are like that, that you just have to mess with and figure it out. But I am sure that someone will come up with the right cuts sooner or later..Denise :=)

  33. Thanks so much for all the wonderful tips. I always enjoy watching you. I love it when you said "oh well, you waste some paper." Don't we all. However we always seem to find something to do with those "waste."
    Thanks again.

  34. What a fun card! Great job! This is a tricky cartridge, what with the images not fitting just right in the card. Love the lizard with that cuttlebugged skin!

    TFS! Joy

  35. Thanks for awesome video showing how to use the card feature. I'm always struggling for ideas on how to use this feature. I never thought of adding a second image on top! Keep up the awesome videos. I'm hooked!

  36. Your videos are Fan-tabulous! thank you for making them and posting them-I've learned a ton.

    ReplyDelete
  37. thanks for sharing your opps with us and the trial and error - I think that is what makes this scrap life so great there really aren't mistakes - you save those for another project (and then have to find that larger gecko for another project!) good to know that trial and error is what really makes us learn!

  42. How did you know to use Fit To Page on the Lizard Card?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Robyn after watching your butterfly video yesterday I spent the evening (and a good part of this morning) making thank you cards using the butterfly and strawberry from Hello Kitty. I love your simple designs and decided it is just as easy to make 10 butterflies as it is to make just one. Now I've got butterflies and strawberries ready for the next time I need a card!

  46. Thanks, Robyn, for another great card. I'm wondering, like you, that the cartridge doesn't have the feature like Walk in My Garden that fits the overlay. Oh well....

    Thank you so much for sharing the special features of the cartridges with us. Oftentimes, that's the hardest part to figure out, and the manual just doesn't do it justice.

    Keep 'em coming!!!

  49. Great video Robyn. If you took the square card feature key off and hit repeat last when you cut the gecko would it then cut it at the correct size for the card?

  50. Ok, so now my 10yr old son has my LAB cart out and is putting it in my cricut...AND he wants to know what the embossing folder is called so I can buy it for him...
