  1. Good job for the first episode!

  2. Jane L chadwick says:

    Love the new show. Very informative.

  3. Bernice says:

    Hi Megan,
    Well done and thanks. Some of those products are not available here but the majority are or have something similar. Storing our cartridges is always an issue, ‘specially when we are getting up into the high tens so those filing boxes look like the go but I have not seen anything like them for sale here (country Victoria, Australia). Will do a bit of a search or maybe order them online…postage is usually the killer though.
    I also love my sticker maker but freak out each time I see you use yours as I am beyond thrifty and use mine so sparingly :-)
    Thanks again.

  4. Awesome job, Megan!! You are just great at everything you do!! I won’t miss an episode!!

  5. Wow! Great first episode!!! You are really rockin’, Megan!! Love the music, too! Very informative. You packed a lot of great information into that 15 minutes!! Can’t wait for the next one!!
    Love, blessings and hugs!
    Linda

  17. Donna Sullivan says:

    Loved it! Especially your little pen/glue tip for picking tiny things up! Can you clarify the resticking of the cutting mat please. The process for the cutting mat should not be used for the Imagine, if I remember correctly, from a previous video you put out?

  18. Fran Luscher says:

    Great show…..loved all the info…agree with items that I already own..not perfect but really great…we each have different needs..haven’t tried the spray but will be doing so soon! Loved the idea for the tobo glue on the pen to pick up the little items!!!

Watching your show may give me the incentive to get busy and use what I have. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

    Megan I am really impressed with this new concept of sharing tips with us. I love it! You look great too….thanks for continuing to provide new and exciting ways to share your ideas and product information. It really helps me decide if I want to purchase a product or not. I also wanted to share that I was able to get a cricut expression. I found a great deal at AC Moore last week. I gifted my cricut create to my daughter and granddaughters and they are thrilled to have a cricut machine now. Have a blessed day!Happy crafting!

  34. Great show Megan loved it! I’m sure its going to help me. I’m looking forward on ur next new video. Thanks for the tips.

  49. Diane says:

    Great show. The CGull storage bag is on its way to my house. I wish I had seen this show before I ordered it so I could consider the problem of how to store the books, etc. Perhaps I’ll put elastics around batches or something. Anyway, thanks for all the tips, and I look forward to next Friday.

  50. Rosalind says:

    Great job. I’m definitely investing in the combo mono multi glue. The video was very informative. Thank you again.

    Laurie

  52. Virginia Schuyler Waddy says:

    Hello Megan awesome job! Thank you for sharing waiting for the next video. vswaddy620@yahoo.com

  53. Great video, I think these will be a big hit! I was wondering if you had any plans for the Cricut Cutting Guide App for the Blackberry?? =)

  54. Trudy says:

    very good job on showing products and loved that you explained something about how to use each one that you showed. Also loved the tip on glue and pen for easy pick up!. You had a tape runner on your desk but did not show or explain its use. I have a lot of trouble with tape runners breaking, any others have the same problem or is it just me?

  55. kim sh jones says:

    Keep up the great work. I’ve had my cricut for 2 years and have been scrapbooking for 20 years…and you still continue to teach me things.

  56. Peggy says:

    Great show! Enjoyed the info and the tip.

  57. Donna B. says:

    Loved the new video. Can’t wait to see more of them. You have managed to pack a whole lot of helpful tips and tricks into one short video! Thank You!!!!!!

  58. Julie says:

    Wow that was great! lots of great tips! I store my cartridges,overlays and books in the photos storage boxes from Hobby Lobby or Micheals I have one for fonts and one for shapes. It works great for me!

  59. nacy says:

    I LOVE IT!!your awesome. And I just keep learning more. Thank you

  60. Corliss says:

    Great job Meagan. I am looking forward to the next episode. Thanks for everything.

  61. Irene Baker says:

    Congratulations on a fantastic first show. A year ago, I too was struggling with a storage system for my cartridges. So I came up with the idea of using a 5 shelf bookcase (on sale at Target for $26). I keep all my cartridges (complete in their boxes), intact & alphabetized on the shelves. Then I can easily see what I have. For the seasonal cartridges that don’t have boxes, I keep them in my jukebox (I have 3 of them on a stand over my Cricut). The manuals easily fit into the bottom of the jukebox, and again I keep the cartridges alphabetized in the top portion. It’s very organized, and works well for me. Thanks for a great first show, and I can hardly wait for February’s show!!

  62. Janet says:

    WOW Megan great job, awesome content can’t wait for the next instalment.

  63. Linda W says:

    Love your first episode~ even though it’s mostly review for those of us who are already on our way, it was great video for newbies. But, let me tell you, I did learn something new. Your neat trick with the glue on pen tip for pick of small items.

  64. Phyllisnanatotwo says:

    Megan: Love the new show,can’t wait til next week!!!

  65. Carmen says:

    Wow Megan~ I loved your new show! SO many helpful hints and I just love the tip about picking things up with glue on your pen!
    I just purchased a sticker maker and am loving it allready!
    I cant wait to see what’s in store for next week!
    You’re awesome!

  66. Carmen says:

    Hi Megan, great first episode, love the tip with the pen, you are wonderful at what you do, tfs and looking forward to the next Fresh Look Friday.

  67. Tammy Brownlee says:

    You know how when you go to church, is seems like the Pastor made the sermon just for you? You must have made this video just for me! I have been researching for a couple of weeks trying to figure out the best adhesive for tiny things! Glue sticks don’t cut it. And a way to pick them up was a bonus! Tweezers don’t always work the best. And revisiting the Cricut mat adhesives was perfect! You mentioned it in one of your videos a while back! Thanks so much. Now we have another reason for TGIF! Can’t wait for next week’s sermon, I mean video! LOL.

  68. Carolyn Staat says:

    Thank you , thank you, thank you, great job and very informative. Can’t wait for next friday. Some of the things I knew about but most were new to me, I love the true feeling about products. Very helpful!

  69. Sheila Gillam says:

    Love the info and tips, Coming from someone who is organizationally challenged I especially loved the storage ideas. Looking forward to the next episode!

  70. Sherri says:

    OMG Megan – AWESOME job!!!

    Megan…WOW that was VERY helpful. I do look forward to the others, can’t wait…… Thanks for the time you put into all your videos. I have a new shopping list!! Blessing to you and your family.

  74. Sheree Taylor says:

    Thanks for the wonderful video! You’ve answered many questions I had as a new Cricut user and I look forward to coming back every Friday to learn even more! Your tip of the day will save me the frustration of working with tiny pieces and I’m looking forward to finding the right products to refinish my cutting mats!
    Thanks soooooo much!!

  78. Gayle says:

    Wonderful show. Very helpful. Disappointed that you didn’t identify your the tape runner you use on many of your videos. It was there and you moved it, but didn’t say anything about it. I’m interested in knowing about it.
    Thanks for doing this and letting us know about supplies we can use with out Cricut Expression.

I got the 3 pc.set of C Gull tools and was able to use my Cricut using them.

  83. Milly D says:

    Very well done Megan, I just loved it. Great episode for a new Cricut user. I love the tip on the sticky tip of a pen, definately will come in use.

  94. Joyce says:

    Very nice show and very informative. You suggested using a coupon at the larger stores, Just keeo in mind, you cannot use a coupon on anything that say cricuit on it at Michaels, JoAnn’s or Hobby Lobby.

  95. Crystal N says:

    Thanks for all the tips Megan cannot wait to try the sprays to restick my mat. Do you have any tips for what to use if you lose the tip off of your tweezers?

  96. Sharon says:

    LOVED THIS VIDEO!!!! Great for us beginners.

  97. Linda Jamme says:

    Thanks, Megan. I enjoyed your first episode of Fresh Look Fridays and will be looking forward to many more. I didn’t expect to learn anything new once I saw the topic but sure enough, you came through with something new to me. Loved your tip about the tombow glue and the ink pen and also didn’t know the glue in that and the zig were repositional ! Now I do. Always wondered why it was called two way…lol. Thanks again !

  123. Ardis says:

    I really enjoyed it. I’ve had my cricut for a couple of years, but haven’t made the time to use it to the fullest. I hope to find more time now, and thanks for all the help with it.

  124. Becky says:

    Kudos Megan. Great video and counting down until the next one.

  125. Malena says:

    I have the CGull Cartridge tote. I have about 50 cartridges in it and the books. The books and overlays fit inside standing on their short end. I made A, B, C, dividers so I could easily find the book I am looking for. I can send a picture.

  126. Dawn says:

    This is totally AWESOME! I can’t wait for next months! Im on my way to the craft store to stock up on supplies!

  129. Lynn P says:

    I really enjoyed your first Fresh Look Friday. Love the tips. I will try to salvage some of my cricut mats. I also love that you are honest about pros and cons of items.

    Awesome job Megan, look forward to seeing more!

  134. Lizabratt says:

  136. Bonnie says:

    Being a new cricut owner, I found the video fantastic. Thanks for all of the great information. Looking forward to next week. Congratulations on the video, awesome job!

  137. Ann G says:

    Yeah Megan. That was fantastic even for us longer time useres. I was just getting ready to restick my mats so it couldn’t have come at a better time. As far as the cGull bag I use a plastic snap top container for the books and overlays. I need to store in a crop type bag because that’s almost the only time I get to create. Works wonderfully.

  138. Chris says:

    AWESOME JOB! That was fantastic…..you did such a great job! Now I know what my favorite thing to watch on Fridays will be. Thanks Megan for always making learning about the Cricut and scrapbooking as a whole fun and interesting….YOU ROCK!

  139. Moira Efird says:

    I feel as though I am your #1 fan. Thank you for the Fresh look Friday helpful cricut tips. I have been wondering about the xyron sticker purchase, and now think I just have to have it. You have used it on several projects that I have viewed, and it might just pay for itself in the long run. Thanks again Megan. You are looking good, and keep up the good work. Blessings. Moira

  140. Sonja Bubolz says:

    Hey, I loved your first show! It looks very professional, and you covered many items that will be very helpful for the Cricut. I also love the Xyron machine, it is great for letters, and sticks really well. I am interested in the Scotch ATG, and I am thinking of purchasing that as well. I also love the spray idea for the cutting mats. The storage system is also a great idea, and I love the fact that its small and compact. Thanks for all of your research and time you have put into these videos and the cutting guide. You have really come a long way with your website, in such a short time! I am so proud of all that you and your husband have accomplished! Keep up the great work!!! Congratulations!

  141. Barb L says:

    Great show. Looking forward to many more. Thanks for your help in crafting. You are awsome!!!!!

  142. Linda M says:

  148. Sandra says:

    I have been scrappin for about 5 months now and consider myself as a post-newbee.I have the CP, CE and CI. All my purchases have been by trail & error, which can be very costly! So I’m sure your new episodes will be helpful to all who tune in to watch. Great Job! TYFS. Sandra, my2pets

    This first episode was good, very informative!! Congrats, well done. I missed the names of the glue pen and the other glue (I am new to scrapbooking!), could you please post the details?

  155. Denise says:

    Well done first episode :) I’d been thinking about buying the bag by cGull and this helped me make up my mind. I did have a question, the spatula for the cricut works so well, a competing company’s spatula that I have used left me less than impressed, so I wanted to ask how is the spatula from the pink kit you showed in the video. Does it have the same great edge or is it more rounded and less able to get under the paper?

    Great first show, will be waiting for the next onf

    Love, love, love the tip on the Mono Mini Glue. I use that glue all the time but have never thought of using it to pick up small pieces to adhere to my projects. I always see other using some kind of tool that does that but could never find them. I am going to use this tip and enjoy the savings. Thanks Megan.

    Love Fresh Look Fridays! Megan you are so wonderful!

  162. Malena says:

    So did you watch my video about how to store booklets and overlays into a CGull Cartridge Tote?

  163. Tina V says:

    Love the Fresh Look Friday video! I can fit my provocraft spatula in the green case by laying the handle over the ruler with the metal top of the spatula resting flat on the foam. The case zips up great with out to much squishing!

  164. Lynn says:

    Just got done watching you show. Very well done! Thank-you for sharing! I can’t wait for the next one! Lynn

    Great 1st episode!!!Great tips on the cutting mat on the stick & spray. I used the big fat 2 way zig pen on my mat.I use the small 2 way zig pen,for my sunday school class we do a craft after each lesson.The white school glue never would dry so I got the zig pens & it helped us out a lot in getting are crafts finished.

    I have had my Cricut Expression for over a year only using it once just to test it. Well this past weekend I put it to use by helping my daughter complete a 1st grade science project. Now I’m in love. I do wish I had seen this epsisode before because the information on the adhesive would have been invaluable. Because of this episode, I am now purchasing a xyron machine as well as adding to my wishlist of future purchases the products for re-sticking the mats and the zig pens.

    Anyway can’t wait for the next installment.

    THANK YOU!

  171. Barbara says:

    Great job Megan. I like to have reinforcement on things that I may already know, and of course I love to learn new things as well. You are my go to gal for everything Cricut! I just recently purchased the Craft Caddy and think it will be great. I have not really set it up completely because I have been ill, but looking forward to using it and getting more in the future. Of course I got it because of you! My only other comment it that I felt the video was a little dark and hard to see. Just my thought. Other than that, it was great!

  172. Marjorie says:

    Thanks for doing the work so we can have the fun. What a blessing you are. Especially to those of us who are newbies.

  173. Whitney says:

    Loved all the information in this video. I am a new Cricut user so I am always looking for tips and tricks. Do you happen to have a list of all of the items you mentioned in this video and where to get them? Thanks again for this awesome video!
