    Hi Megan. A few months ago I purchased the “Winter Snow” cartridge for my Cricut. There are 10 3D snowflakes that I just love. I can always cut them on white or blue paper but I have been looking for paper that looks like snow that sparkles in the sun (on both sides) to make them special. Do you know where I can find something like that?

  • Linda W

    “Good busy” is wonderful, and you’ve been busy. Looks like your wonderful business is booming. Much congratulations to you and yours. As always, thanks a bunch for all the great ideas you give us to add more fun to our creations.

    Well your life is anything but boring these days. The video was just plain fun. I giggled right along with you/ sang some too. Keep up the great work.

  • Trish S.

    Hi Megan,
    I was hoping that maybe I’d see you at the CK Valley Forge Scrapbook Convention, but you will be having fun in NY. Good luck to you in all of your adventures!

  • Shirley E.

    Hi Megan, glad your back. I have a question about your new DVD “Cricut A to Z 2nd Edition”. I already have the original “A to Z” DVD,and I own the E2. Will we be able to just purchase the section on using the Cricut Expression 2 separately because I don’t want the original again?
    Love your new paper line too, I have all of it!

  • Joy Metcalf

    looking forward to getting the A-Z Stamp machine DVD… my machine is still on the shelf in the plastic bag from when I bought it in APRIL… mercy me!!!

  • chinajo

    Looking forward to the new cricut dvds you will be making. I own all cricut dvd’s plus your stamping dvd. You do an excellent job explaining and have the best dvd’s out there. Also I must say professionally done because I’ve purchased some others that were not professionally made and would not work. Thanks Meagan!!

  • chinajo

    Cricut Cards for Every Occasion – Is this going to be a tv show or DVD? You mention its coming to our tv not sure what you meant. Sound inspiring and can’t wait. Thanks.

  • Joan Peters

    YOU ARE ONE SMART COOKIE. I ENJOY ALL THE ITEMS THAT YOU SHOW AND ALL THE NEW PRODUCTS THAT YOU SHOW US. I HAVE TWO OF YOUR DVDS BUT I REALLY WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO DO ONE ON DESIGN STUDIO FOR CRICUT EXPRESSION.

  • Annette

    It’s fun to see you having fun! Life is too short not to laugh. Can’t wait to hear about your trip to NYC. Have a great day:)

  • patricia pent

    Welcome back, glad to see you have fun when you are creating these wonderful videos for us. I have the same question as Shirley E. about the DVD’s, I too have Cricut A-Z and Gypsey A-Z, will the new DVD have new different things in it?
    Can’t wait to see what else you will be sharing with us.
