Life of a Professional Crafter

I craft for a living. I do. I go to work every day and from 9 to 5 make beautiful things for Cricut. However, when I get home, it's like my mind doesn't want to be creative anymore! I don't know what it is. I pull my car into the garage and my creative side completely shuts down. I try to bring it back to life, I really do. But most of the time, creativeness happens at work and that's it.

So, I thought I would share with you some of the projects I've been creating at Cricut over the last five months. We've been working hard to launch the new Cricut Explore, and part of that was me (and three other designers) making amazing projects.

Want to see some of my hard work? Click on the images to go to the specific project on Cricut Design Space.

Pretty fun, right? Which one is your favorite?

    1. Thanks Liz! You can cut felt with the new Explore!! The secret is to apply medium pressure and have it cut multiple times. Luckily, there is a Felt setting under Custom settings - no adjusting needed. I found that it worked better with higher-grade felt, like 100% wool felt. The cheapy stuff was more fibrous and harder to cut through.
