Episode 352 - Cricut Explore Christmas Tag (Day 7) - 12 Days of Christmas

Pin It

Good morning Everyone!

Can you believe it is Monday already?  It has been such a busy weekend for me!  My baby boy turned 8 and was baptized on Saturday and then we had about 40 people over for lunch after.  It was soon fun!  I am grateful that we finally are able to live close to family.  What a blessing that is for us.  

Okay, here we go!  Today there will be two posts since I took Sunday off.  Don't forget to check back this afternoon for Day 8!!  

Preorder Update:
Just got my shipping confirmation that my stamps will arrive today and tomorrow!  They will be packaged up and in the mail to you all by Wednesday!  Just in time for my next release on Friday, which will NOT be preorders!  I will only ship what is in stock and they will go out early next week.  Probably will work better that way and you will not have to wait.  Boo to preorders!!  :)

  91. Robyn - Thank you so much for the Cricut Explore videos. I know you said you don't like using your computer when making a video, but I wanted you to know how much it has helped. I just purchased my Explore on black Friday and I really do like it and your videos are a tremendous help. Thanks for keeping things simple.

  94. Hi Robyn,
    Karlee did a great job on the holiday wreaths. I love my explore for the print then cut feature also for the fact that I can use other cuts not just from cricut cartridges so I think that this machine is the best of both worlds, what about you.

    Thanks for sharing,
