Hello,

My name is Carmen and I'm new to Circle of Mom's and the Scrapbooking Mama's community. I LOVE to scrapbook, make cards and do paper crafts. I am really excited about my Cricut machine right now and my new YourStory machine that I got for Christmas that I have not had a chance to use yet. I love sharing ideas about crafts and learning new things about scrapbooking from others.

Quoting Melanie:

Hello and welcome. What is the YourStory machine? I have a cricut and love it. If you do not have the design studio for the cricut, it is well worth it, b/c you can do so much with it.



Hi thanks for the welcome. The YourStory machine is from Provo Craft and it laminates and allows you to hard cover bind your scrapbooks or make any book with it really. Still haven't had a chance to use it but I'm dying to. You can see it under products on the cricut.com site.



 



Yes, I want design studio and the Sure Cuts A Lot program. That allows you to cut from any TrueType font/winding. That's why I gave in and bought the Cricut Expression because I could add that program and get the versatility you can get with a lot higher priced machines.



 



I made some really neat Disney autograph books and a countdown to Disneyland calendar a while back for my kids before we went to Disneyland. I'll try to post them somewhere soon. It's been my most favorite project yet on it but I have made treat bags, wall decor,  vinyl lettering, and all sorts of other things with it. I can't wait to try shrink plastic in it to make bracelet charms. This machine is so much fun.
