Hello friends.

Just popping in to share a habit tracker that I made this afternoon. I made it to to keep track of my morning and afternoon medications. I did not number it or add too many labels so that it would be useable for whatever you want.

Resources for Cricut and Design Space

This post contains affiliate links. All opinions are my own. 

As a papercrafter I have purchased allot of tools over the years. It started with the decorative edge scissors put out by Fiskars and has continued on through 4 generations of Cricuts and numerous cutting tools.

Over the years though I have passed many of my no longer used tools down to my daughter, a girls group, a women's shelter and some even found their way to Kijiji.

I have found that I consistently prefer to work with my Cricut. Sometimes I miss announcements about new features until I watch one of Melody Lanes videos. That is how I discovered print and cut had been added. What a game changer.

I came across this video which shows some of the features of design space (the software that works with your Cricut). This playlist goes through the many features of the software with easy to follow instructions.
