Cricut Classroom Exlusives - Classroom - October & November Cut Free for a Week

Ok... I know... I know! I didn't publish a video for a year and then I finally get one up and 2 days later it's obsolete. BUMMER!

So if you read my last post and watched my video on how to get to the Free Cut of the Week and then tried it today... You'd find that Cricut redesigned their entire website. So now the video is pretty much useless. When I went to log on today to find out what the new free cuts were I was a little panicked. Remember what I said on the video... "I'm glad they didn't discontinue the free cuts"...? I thought I had jinxed it and was so bummed. I frantically tried to find where it could be. I searched that site head to toe... no luck!!!

Well... good news. It is still available. And I'm super excited about this weeks cuts. Cricut Craftroom Exclusives: Classroom - October & November. Love this cartridge.

At first I thought it was just going to be those four cuts... and I was excited about them alone. Then I clicked on the details page and saw all the rest. Woohoo! This is a great sampling to cut from this week. Can't wait. My daughter and I are in the process of coming up with a project to share with you so you can take advantage of these great cuts.

So... I mentioned that the link to see what the new free cuts are is gone. I figured out how to get to it two ways. One... I just followed the link from my previous post and it updated to this weeks cuts. So you can click on any of the previous links to the free cuts and that will get you there. Two... I called Cricut Support. The nice lady I spoke to obviously has had this question more than once today. The link is not yet available on the Cricut site. However, on the main page, under the banner you can sign up for emails and you will get a weekly email that will have a link and share with you the free cuts. Eventually they will have a link on the site. 

So... Happy cutting! I would love for you to share some of your ideas for this great cartridge. I'm hoping that by Friday we will have a video posted with some projects using these cuts. I can't wait!!!! :)

FREE to cut! Love!

Ok... so this is one of those things that Cricut has been doing for a while and I was afraid it had come and gone. Love that they are still doing this.

So if you aren't familiar... Cricut has content that you can cut FREE for a week. Each week they change. I'm super bummed that I didn't get anything cut from last weeks. It was . I didn't realize it till after it was gone.

So here is this weeks FREE cuts.

These are both great but the Happy Hauntings is great for the upcoming holiday. Don't miss out like I did last week. Get that Cricut out and get to cutting. You've got two more days.

So... Definitely will be cutting some of these out... but I also can't wait to see what is net weeks free cuts :)

So... do you know how this works? Log on to your Cricut CraftRoom. The two above carts will show up in bold as available to cut.

Here's a quick video on how to get to the cartridges to take advantage of this great opportunity that Cricut gives us.

I'm so excited. I know.... I know... the sound is crappy. The video quality isn't that great. And I stumbled over my words a few times. But hey... I'm BACK! And I am super excited about bringing you more videos. And I promise... It won't be another year. Even if I have to use my cruddy laptop, my creaky tripod and have horrible sound. I WILL bring you more videos. And it's all about the content... right? LOL. It's about what you learn. So if you learn something or enjoy my videos... that's all that matters.
See ya soon! :)

Ok... so my last post said that it wouldn't be 4-5 months before my next post. I guess I was right. It's been 10 instead.... :(

I'm so sad about this. Soooooo.... it's time to get back on the ball. Today I had some fun. I have been playing around with Cricut CraftRoom and my Gypsy. It's so awesome that you can now link your Gypsy cartridges to your CraftRoom as well. Over the last couple of weeks I've been trying hard to get all my machines updated. Started with my Gypsy.... didn't get much farther. LOL. I have had many "technical difficulties" over the ten months I've been MIA. My iMac has died. My editing software has failed and my laptop decided to die as well. So I've had to use my old one that's pretty janky. I had all kinds of issues trying to update.

Today I got farther along on updating my Gypsy than I ever did before. Still not all the way updated though. BUT...... YEAH.... I did get my Gypsy cartridges linked to CraftRoom. I made a video of that today. So now I just need to get working on solving the issue with my editing software. Can't wait to share that video with you all.

Lets see if we can shoot for getting that video done within a week.... wish me luck!
