1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / How long does it take to cut with Cricut? on: May 20, 2010 11:19:27 AM
Hi craftsters!

I'm looking into getting cricut personal machine to make my wedding invitations. I just want to make sure it will be practical! How long does the machine take to cut? I'm thinking about cutting our names out of a cardstock using the machine and would need to make 150+ cards.

Any insight would be very helpful!

Also -- Is the Cricut Personal exactly the same as the expressions only smaller? You can connect it to your computer and create your own designs with the Sure Cuts a Lot software, right?

So cute! Thank you for being so generous to offer the patterns! I've been obsessed with  making hats lately...

I would love to see what this looks like on a head, if anyone makes it - please show!

Thanks for all the tips, guys. You make some very good points. I'm still quite fond of the name, mostly on an aesthetic level I like the way it looks. I guess I don't mind attracting an audience that is a bit quirky and likes my quirky name. But at the same time I don't want to turn people off. The name of my business is not going to be the determining factor to how successful I will be - in the end it is the work I create.

I did take into account the connotations of the words I chose: The phrase to me sounds fresh and clean, sweet yet practical. Just like my design work.

So unless I can think of something I like better, I'm sticking with it. Smiley

Thanks again! It's a huge help.

thanks! i was planning on the "design" as being kind of a subhead...not a main part of the name because i agree with you...it doesn't quite "go". but at times i think i will need the descriptive subhead.

Hey guys,

I always like to ask you people what you think of the names I come up with for my business. I'm a graphic designer, currently a student, and we need to come up with our business name by Thursday!

How do you feel about:

honeydew lettuce design

I realize it's totally random and doesn't really mean anything...but that's kind of what I was going for. i just really like the sounds of the words and it looks really nice written in this pretty script font that i love. And I wanted something that wouldn't get confused with anything else and that would be memorable. I'm basically considering either this or just using my name.

Please give me an honest opinion! Am I crazy? I already know I am, so don't hesitate to confirm it Smiley

yeah i've seem some like the second too, so pricey though. 

i found these:

just plain strips of leather... they come in several colors and widths and seem like they are thin enough to cut/poke holes in. also relatively cheap compared to some other purse handles.

i think they might work out...we shall see!

Hey guys -

I just got some amazing japanese craft books with purse patterns.  A lot of the purses in the books use these skinny, leathery looking handles that look so lovely - I just don't know where to get anything like them...

The last one has the kind i want the most...I had a hard time finding good pictures, but hopefully someone will know what I'm talking about!

Where can one get skinny, pre-made leather-ish handles!? 
Thanks in advance,
