A friend who has done some really cool paper projects with her Cricut came to visit and helped me get over my fear of using mine.  Undecided I started kind of simple with this pop-up card.



I used only stash materials. The "flag" piece is something I cut using a friend's Skizzix a few years ago. The heart was cut by my visiting friend and in her stash. Not sure what tool she used for that.



It was fun to have such a perfect use for some two-sided cardstock paper! I cut and folded an envelope to go with it, but am waiting to get some good paper glue before I finish it. I used two-sided tape adhesive on the card.

Pop up cards, what fun!
I've only ever made one, handcut what a lot of work!

Great job! Isn't it funny how we can be about a new thing? Then once you try it and see how easy and fun it is you wonder what you were waiting for! I love that  Smiley.

Thanks guys!

My first foray was frustrating and confusing. I had set aside time to focus on learning, but then broke my hand and just never got back to it.
Having an IRL lesson really helped.

Very cute! Cant wait to see what you do next!!

I have one more card all cut and folded, but I need some vellum glue to finish AND I bought another kit with a really neato piece. I need to get my own scoring stylus and do some paper shopping!

 I know how you felt. I have a Silhouette machine and it just intimidates the daylights out of me. It's nice to have someone with you explaining things. This turned out great. I hope we get to see lots more of this from you.

Thanks! I'm excited to play with it. I am going to use doing Cricut projects as rewards for working on less fun projects around the house.

I love that you made a pop up card for your first project! Like steiconi, I've only made one hand-cut version. I know that the latest version of the Silhouette software has a pop up card feature, but I haven't tried it. Maybe this summer!

And gozer, try something basic with your Silhouette. Cut out some cardstock (but invest in a low tack mat, first) and just have some fun. You can do a lot with just the basics, and once you get a feel for how things work, you can move on. You can cut freezer paper or stencil material and stencil shirts or other things-good beginner projects!
