The offer is still open if there is anyone who does not have the Mini book cartridge or want to fiddle with hand cutting. If you want to send me your cardstock choices, I would be more than happy to cut the exploding box pieces out for you and mail them to you. Just send me a PM.

Hi hi hidyhoe to my partner Barb, got some goodies today and hope you like the goodies I got. Shopped almost till I dropped, was glad to get home - not. Could have shopped and looked more and I got to one store only.

I got so much on sale and clearance and of course new that I have all my fall swaps covered.

Hugs Patti

I am happy to say that I have cut, glued and am so excited about 2 exploding mini boxes! Of course I left my phone upstairs and am too lazy to get it to take pictures of the sample mini box!

I used single sided patterned paper for both of the albums, cut one sheet face up and the other patterned side down, glued them together and they look great! I'm so excited - now onto embellishing the exploding album for my partner Evelyn

Oh send a pic of the trial run Nat. Now have a question for you all.

Hubby isn't on computer much so since I am and I am tired of this eating my stuff. I told hubby I was going to take my rally money I'm going to buy a new one. I looked on Amazon and they are pretty good prices for that and on some PC's.

I would like all you more experienced people to tell me what you would buy. If you have time you can look on Amazon. Going to post on a couple places. Appreciate any opinions and info. Hugs Patti

Hi partner Barb and all you ladies. I want to get busy but don't know for sure how to get CCR on this new computer. Anyone know?? I need to finish my cards and can't as I need in there.
Can I put it on the external hard drive or does it have to go on my computer. I love this so far, but of course only been set up for a couple hours. Hubby asked if he could have HIS computer now since I have mine. So I let him take it but might have to borrow it back tonight to get some things done. Barb and I have pm'd each other several times so we are good. Hugs and Blessings - Patti

You go girl, Patti -- new computer means lots of new projects. I just got a new laptop and love it. My old laptop went boom. We got a new all in one for my craft room but then I talked hubby into getting a laptop for me so I could have it in the living room while watching tv. Actually, he was lonesome and wanted me to watch tv with him so this is how it worked out. Worked out great for me. LOL.

Yes, the summer is almost over and can you believe how fast Christmas will be here? I was wanting a Brother Scan n Cut but since they came out with the new mats on the Cameo, I decided to pass on the Brother. My new mats will be here soon, can't wait to try them. I wish PC had done that with the E2. I am not sure I want to invest in another machine. I have bought them all and now I think I'll just settle with my E2 and have fun with it. I still like my Cameo though.

Oh, my explosion box is a MESS. I am going to try again. The settings were way off, so not sure what I did wrong -- but I'll get it I am sure. I read all the posts so far and they are helpful, thanks everyone for such great tips. Each one gets me one step closer to success. LOL.

Hope you all are having a great weekend.
Evelyn

Hi Everyone, glad to see you all.

Evelyn - what is a Cameo, so many machines it gets confusing what does what. I do want an Explore (I think) and love my Expression. Congrats on your new laptop also. I like this but of course will be learning for awhile, 8.1 is so very different from other Windows.

Nat, nice job. I have mine layed out but haven't cut one yet.

Hope everyone had a great week-end. Hugs and Blessings - Patti

Thanks for the great picture of your box..it looks really cute ! I love the papers... I think double-thickness of the paper is a good idea unless you are using cardboard. I am experimenting with some corrugated cardboard papers to see what will happen. I also have some cardstock from Joanns that I got which is more like chipboard that has been colored green and has green glitter dots on it. I may try that as well.
I have to learn more about using the EXPLORE. I opened the box 2 weeks ago and have done NOTHING on it yet. I will need to close down my Etsy shop for a few days so I can have time to craft something ! BigGrin Laugh

BIG WAVES to partner Golfingrams...I have your papers picked out and some embellishments too ! Love

Patti - the glitter was on the paper already - had to make sure I cut 2x's to get it through all the way



Natalie

CricutCrazy - I've had my Explore since June (?) and haven't even taken it out of the box!!!! Soon - soon!

So excited. While over at my sister's house yesterday, I was looking through her stamps and found one which will work perfectly for some of the composition book pages. She let me borrow it. Now to stamp some trial papers to see if my idea "BLOOMS".

Hi Everyone ! These are a little bit of a challenge aren't they ???? So many possibilities though !

CricutNat - thanks so much for the 'moral support' about the EXPLORE... I think I will use my Expression for this swap mostly...at least for the box part. I may employ the EXPLORE to cut some of the small tiny cuts that I want to put into the box and album....as it seems to cut cleaner than older machines. (at least that is what everyone says )

Got my box laid out the book somewhat put together. I'm working it in my mind. BigGrin Every time I go thru and look at it, I think of something else.

I bought the month subscription and got the box from there. Yeah! Just in case someone doesn't have a pattern, try that. The explore does a good job cutting.

Sure hope my swap partner likes her exchange. Flapper

Oops CricutNat you're doing a great job on your box.

I will like and appreciate anything you come up with. I am not a picky person. Does not take much to make me happy!!

Have spent most of today working on both your mini comp book and also the exploding box album. Am really liking how this is coming together.

HA HA! Yes BLOOM is much better than boom! Mostly finished up the inside of the mini album. Now need to decide what to put inside on the pages of the exploding box. Did create some decos for the outside of the box. Might have to remake one or two of them, because the .......is not..........!
