November is here and with it the anticipation of more warm and happy holidays and family gatherings. I personally have no problem with all of the celebrating and well wishing. My family is getting bigger every year. Lately, I have been having trouble recalling everyone's birthdays, and anniversaries. I'll be creating a Cricut calendar to assist me with remembering all these important dates and their cards in advance so I'm ready to gift them when each big day arrives. With the Cricut products, there is something for everyone and limitless ideas and possibilities to help me with this project.
Happy Cricuting :-)

PROJECT CORNER AND SPOTLIGHT
|I'm a sahm of two and have been married for eleven years. I've had my Cricut since last Christmas and really enjoy making cards, scrapbook pages and paper crafts with it.|
Rhonda's Project: Money Tree
George and Basic Shapes, Cricut Keystone
|This is a gift for my daughter's friend who is turning 10. There are 10 one dollar bills that make up the 5 "leaves. I used the George and Basic Shapes cartridge for the center of the flower in sizes 3 and 3 1/2" I used the Keystone cartridge for the letters in 1 1/2" and the shadow feature. I added dazzling diamonds glitter to the letters.|
This week's highlighted threads are:
TIPS TREASURE CHEST - Popcorn
This week's tip comes to you from message board members CassieWebb1
I was wondering if anyone knows of a cartridge that has popcorn on it? I want to do a thank you card for someone who bought Cub Scout popcorn from my boys and thought it would be neat if I could do something like that on it. A.
I don't know of one with popcorn on it, but I know I have seen people use the ice cream, without the cone, as popcorn. (Simply cut out a bunch of little ice cream shapes and put them all together.)
CARTRIDGE EXPLORATION -
Crafty Kimber has come down with the flu, so there is no cartridge exploration this week. Let's all send her out best wishes and thoughts, and hopefully she will be back next week!
TECH SUPPORT NOOK - Q. I just bought a used Cricut and the blade seems to be dragging while it is cutting. In the times that it should pick up the blade to move on to another part it does not. I have adjusted the blade settings and checked to make sure that the blade housing is sitting correctly. Anyone have any suggestions?
