Cricut and Fun Foam---Such Possibilities!

It is so exciting to be a part of a very talented group at She's a Sassy Lady. Today,
is my day to post over there. Check it out!

For a while I have wanted to cut Fun Foam successfully with my Cricut; not a pretty picture! After much internet research I am pretty excited!

Your Cricut
An older, less sticky mat
A permanent marker
Creatology Fun Foam: 1 strip 3" x 6"
  • background color: 10. 5 x 3"
  • two decorative mats: 3.s5 x 2.75" each
  • two shapes to stamp: 3 x 2.5"
sentiment stamp of choice
embellishment of choice
repositionable Glue (I use Xyron)
acrylic stamp block
Cricut Shape Cartridge

The following series of videos will explain how to set up your machines and foam in order to have the best cuts.

Video 1: Setting up the Cricut

Video 2: Creating a Gypsy Template and setting up a cut

Video 3: Removing the foam from the mat and setting up the stamp.

The background card has quickly become one of my favorites. It is so versatile! Take the cut shape 10.5 x 3" . Along the 10.5" side, score at 3.5" and 7". Check out this video for folding and decorating!

Until next time, continue to sort through the scraps, to generate those gems!
