Christmas solutions review




Over the next few Weeks I intend to "review" the better part of my cartridges. I hope you enjoy it.

1.The first thing that is odd about the Christmas cartridge is (as Rhonda said at the crop) it has no info booklet. And that does make it difficult if you have glasses or need them. I suggest bookmarking the info page on the cricut library site. (hint you can enlarge screen on site look at the top menu bar)

2.The second is more peculiar that odd. When you have inserted the cartridge and start the actually cutting process when it's done it cuts the image again making it a double cut.
3.The next is intricate cuts. I could not get textured (dcwv) paper to cut well. No I did not check my blade because it's not that old and yes i did make pressure and other adjustments to the blade its self. It ended up cutting best on smooth texture paper (American Crafts) and all the examples shown are cut on that paper.
4.It does take away the massive layering process like the Disney Princess cartridges. I can find few images that take more than four cuts and the images ends up pretty intricate.
5.I must give a shout out to Provo Craft for including a Cross: side note the "Cross" is called a star when the image pops up on the expression screen. You make your own mind up, call it what you want, this is just my view). Other than the manger scene on paper dolls and making it yourself on design studio your hard pressed to find anything relative when it comes to Christian symbols.
6.I really like the cartridge over all. All of the images are very traditional, and exactly what you would from a Christmas cartridge. It did leave me wanting more (because it was so nice) I feel like it still should be loaded down like Zooballo . You will find the left hand side bar is mostly blacked out except for shadow, blackout, paper saver, real dial size, shift, and shift lock, most all cartridges have those features so it is a bit stripped down compared to most. They call it a solutions cartridge and I still wonder why when it's so short on potential?

so much

Where Do I begin again? I. Have. No. Ideal. I'm going to hit the ground running here and just say the past few years has held a great amount of change for my husband and I. We have lived new places made new friends and started over again. We are movers and shakers I guess. Not really just doing what we can to make life feel comfortable as possible. so lets get off and running, I haven't had a scrap space for almost a year, its been well over a year since I've used a cricut but not the gypsy. The cards most fast and quick and not picture worthy. As some things stay the same I'm still into clean lines its still a timeless favorite. So much of what you will see is rockin it old school or cute and quick and a few Pintrest inspirations. I'm a girl on the run so more quick than anything. For the first time in three years I plan not to travel for a few months and that makes crafting, blogging, and everything else less complicated and room for relaxation and fun. Enjoy the…

Feeling fine as frog hair! Now to get Miss Pumpkin on the mend, who has been hair ball hacking for five days. My poor girl! We'll I'm off to photograph some cards. I hope you all are well!

Life

Ahh so I know no updates of late. A most lazy poster am I. I ve been not liking the current upload system for my pictures so that why I don't post often. Life is ok. We are still in Fort Worth. Traffic boggles my imagination daily I spend about an hour on the road everyday and its only 6 miles to hubby's work and back. Bright lights, big city, crappy traffic.

Do we like it? It's not the worst place we have lived. You'll find original Texans are friendly, problem is not many are around. Of course the possibility could be maybe I'm not that likable. I doubt I'll ever be able to answer that.

We have never bought a house for many reasons the main being ours in B.G. never sold. It sits after price reductions and after every real estate analysis you could think of. 30k plus under market value and yes I've had a recent estimate. The other is taxes. Taxes are about 6000 on a .25 acre lot here . so even if you buy a little house you have a horrid bill. In Arlington …
