There are many types of cardstock such as regular cardstock and glitter cardstock. One of my favorite things to do with cardstock is make paper flowers! I love how easy it is to make paper flowers with the Cricut Maker. Typically, I use the fine point blade when cutting paper flower templates. The cut is always perfect. Don’t forget to change your blade every now and then!

I really wanted to make myself a corkboard and needed to cut chipboard for the back of the corkboard. I was very surprised that I could cut chipboard as long as I used the knife blade! It is truly amazing to consider all the things you can do with not only the different types of materials but the tools as well. A full range and flexibility to match you creativity is exactly what the Cricut Maker gives you.



Did you know that the Cricut Maker can cut faux leather? I have made faux leather earrings and some super cute bookmarks! The cool thing about faux leather is that it comes in so many different textures and colors!


You can never go wrong with vinyl! Cricut offers a HUGE selection of vinyl. Seriously, you have an abundance of selection! From patterned vinyl to permanent vinyl the options are endless. It makes creating unique designs super fun because you know that the Cricut Maker can cut all types of vinyl to bring your ideas to life!


Infusible ink is one of the newest products by Cricut! Have you used it before? Infusible ink is a heat transfer that permanently infuses into your selected material such as this onesie.

Happy Crafting!
