I had to go look too! But after reading their site and viewing their gallery, I think I can make the shapes and embellishments with my Cricut and in any size I want.

But, just like carts. . .some will like/use them and some won't. So it's great that you found something you love to use in your crafting.

i hope you enjoy them! i love the looks you get with them. but i think it is a lot of extra work and i hate the idea of using scissors to cut them. i will use the idea of layering but not buy the kits. patti on ss said she had some and never used them and sold them at the retreat she was just at.

I love the border templates but rarely use the embellishment templates that I have. I always turn to the Cricut for that!

I found them at the CKC show last July. I use them often when I can't come up with a layout idea. I agree that some of the embellishments could be cut on the Cricut. However by the time I find what cartridge has the right shape and I figure out what size I need to cut it, I find it easier to just use the templates. I could also make my own photo sizes out of cardstock, but I like that I can see through the plastic so I can place it exactly where I want it on my photo. Just my opinion.

I thought about replicating them on the cricut, but I figured that's about as fair as copying cartridge images with other software. If their idea inspired me, I figure It's fair to buy some of their product. I love how they use a bracket for journaling, too. And the combo of their border shapes and use of patterned paper is beautiful to me. I've been enjoying their youtube channel.

AND they inspired me to buy Tim Hiltz scissors, and those rock!

I have written on the embellihments templates which cartridge to use and what image. Makes it really easy that way! I alsway have a file in my gypsy that has many of the "templates" already prgrammed on a page and saved. Very simple. I still find it just way quicker to cut the borders by hand though.

They remind me of the discontinued Pages by Design System. These were great for planning layouts.

yes! th scissors do rock!!! i think it's awesome that you feel that way. i don't think being inspired by youtubes or products means i am infringing on copyright. i posted a new post about heidi swapp captions and how i am going to do that with my g and cricut.

I have all of the border templates... Absolutely love them since I have been a paper hoarder for over 15 years... lolol! This system has inspired me to pull out my Cricut as well... Unlike another poster, I believe that the $200 that I spent on the boarders entitles me to choose like patterns from my over 80 cartridges. I don't like using scissors to cut round images, I can never make them look good! I have also purchased many of their paper packs... LOVE them!!! They have the best and easiest ideas to follow... I also switch up my paper often and recreate their ideas!!! The idea book is a must have, and their video's are inspiring! Fantastic company!Love

I went an checked out 2 of the Videos. It looks like you have to trace and cut out everything. Wouldn't it easier to use your Cricut Machine? I'm I missing something here?

I had to check them out to see what they was. Not really something I would use.

One reason a poster gave was copyright infringement (kind of like purchasing and using a linked cart or making a Mickey Mouse from circles or listening to pirated music), but others thought it was not, but using a product for inspiration. Whatever your thoughts, what a great product. If I didn't have a Cricut, I would get something like that for making cards.

A lot of times if I copy something and really like it, I end up purchasing the product. I can never copy it as great as the "real" thing, but copying it does help me decide if I really want the product or not.

Like the look of some of the boarders but don't want to hand cut them. I have myself cut out square/rectangle shape to place on layouts as templates. Use to used design studio to plan layouts. Haven't been doing scrapbooking much lately.

I like the look of the borders, however for the accessories, I would definitely use my cricut. BigGrin
