Saturday video share- Knock Knock

I'm a sucker for everything cute and this video is too fun to not share. I'm totally diggin' the animation!

This is Brunettes Shoot Blondes' new music video for their song, Knock Knock. The animation is shown on 14 Ipads, Iphones and other devices. It's pretty cool!  Click HERE to see the video if you are following this blog via the email newsletter.

Friday Freebies {plus new Owl of It!}

Is it really Friday already? The days seem to be flying by so fast! I have completed several projects this week but I have yet to post them on the blog. Go check out my Facebook page if you want to get a peek at what I have been up to, or you can check back here next week. :-)

LD has released several new sets today. If you like owls, you are in for a treat! There are A LOT of new owls on the LD site!

If you are getting the Owl of It collection, make sure to buy the bundles instead. Those are always a better deal especially when combined with a coupon.

LD is also offering an added freebie- from now until Tuesday, you can get the LD Owly Owly In Come Free font for FREE with any purchase! The font will be automatically added to your library after you have bought something from their store.

One more thing, do the new owls look somewhat familiar to you? That may be because they coordinate with THIS FREEBIE that I have on the blog. Click HERE to get the Happy Birthday to Whoo printables if you don't already have them.

Here's your Friday Freebie:

Click HERE or the image above to go to the LD site. Add the Bag It Owl Up bag toppers Cut Its (SVG) to your cart and checkout. You pay $0.00! The link to the download will show up after the "transaction" is completed.

scrapNfonts is a sister site of LD and they too have a freebie to give away. Click HERE to go to their Fontaholic blog and download the Typography Candy Bar Wrappers (printable).

Silhouette users, don't forget to grab the weekly freebie from the Silhouette Online (Shape) Store.

Have a SUPER weekend!

New! Cricut Print-then-Cut

I'm seeing a lot of excitement coming in from the Cricut groups on my Facebook feed. Cricut has released their Print-then-Cut feature(PtC) for the Cricut Explore! The Silhouette's Print-and-Cut (PnC) is my favorite thing to do with paper and I am happy that the Cricut fans can now enjoy it too. I have been playing with the Cricut Design Space for the last few months and while personally, I still prefer using Silhouette Studio (version 2.8.16d! I'm still not liking v3.1.417), I am curious how the Cricut's PtC compares to Silhouette's PnC.

Here's a video from Cricut that explains how their Print-then-Cut works:

If you have already tried out the Cricut's Print-then-Cut, do share what you think of it. You can post in the comments below or on my Facebook page.

My Cricut Explore has been sitting on the floor since early June. Despite my increasing frustrations with Silhouette America (deteriorating customer service and lousy software upgrades), I have been happy with my Cameo machine and what I have been able to make with it. There simply was not a good reason to try out the Cricut Explore.

Perhaps the time has finally come to give it a shot.
