BeaInspired – L Letterpress Machine

The L Letterpress Machine was dubbed the ‘next big thing’ during the holiday season last year.

BeaInspired – Cricut “Straight from the Nest”

Although I have learned to create SVG files that work directly with my Cricut machine, does not mean that I can resist some of the great cartridges from Provocraft!

He loves to fish, so [...]

There are lots of up-cycling uses for toilet paper rolls. Today I wanted to share a card making use! This is a really basic card but you cannot even tell where we pulled our supplies from. The process for making this card has less than five steps and took a grand total of 20 minutes. [...]

BeaInspired – Tetris

In an interesting conversation about an upcoming costume contest at my work, the game Tetris arose as a possible costume idea. Since I am always looking for card ideas, when Tetris came up a card instantly came to mind. The colorful squares were cut using the George and Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge at 3/4″. I [...]
