I've received an Explore for Christmas from my awesome hubby! I made some some little paper dolls for my Harry Potter Pages. Decorated my cricut with vinyl (used it for the first time). Can't take credit for the ideas, I lifted them from others.

I got the idea for the cricut from an Explore Facebook Group I am a member of.
I also for the first time this weekend cut fabric with my explore and did a 2 layer iron on to make a shirt for my daughter. It was a productive weekend!
