Ribbon Wraps

Boy, this is a first! Since I only post every couple of months, posting two times in one day is amazing! But . . . I decided that this secret was too good to keep to myself.

You need a scrapbooking paper container with handles from Artbin and these wonderful ribbon wraps. For ages, I have hunted for a way to organize and contain my ribbons. I have tried spools, bags, the EZ Ribbon holder - all sorts of things. This method has proven to be the most efficient and portable.

Check out the link here to see what I'm talking about. On the left sidebar is a category called "Ribbon Wraps". That's where the REAL treasure is.

If you're wanting a good way to store and organize your ribbon, check it out. It's worked beautifully for me and a couple of my scrapbooking buds.

New Gypsy Update

Okay, so I have a Cricut Gypsy and have honestly not used it as much as I have used DS to design my scrapbooking and card stuff. The reason is that the screen on the Gypsy is small and I haven't had the same capabilities to manipulate my designs as well or hide contours like I can in DS. (Isn't it a shame when we get old and our eyes don't work as well? lol)

Things are a-changin'. With the latest update, we can now hide contours and hang part of the design off the mat without it all disappearing in a blank box. We can also add more layers (although I don't think mine works correctly) which should help with multi-dimensional designs.

Well . . . a wonderful lady named Tammy has done great and miraculous things. She has made a couple of videoes that explain the updates and show you how to use the new changes. You can check them out at http://www.cricutcritters.com/
