How to Position The Cutting Blade with the Cricut Expression 2 18

Hey Everyone!

I’m getting ready to head off to CHA tomorrow and I’m trying to get caught up on a bunch of different things but I wanted to share with you this FREE DVD Download that answers the current #1 Viewer Question right now: How Do I cut Paper Layerz with the Expression 2 and how do I move the blade around to cut where I want!?

Well here is the cool thing! The Paper Layerz Project and Inspiration DVD shows you JUST how to do that!Ā  It’s available to buy as a disc in store – or a FREE Digital Download!

Since I’m heading off to CHA to show just how this Paper Works, I thought this post would be perfect for you to watch and see and be inspired by!Ā  This DVD will help you create awesome projects, even if you aren’t using Paper Layerz.Ā  You’ll see me using the Silhouette SD, The Slice, The eCraft, Expression, Gypsy, and Expression 2. Send me pics on Facebook of the fabulous things you create after watching the videos! šŸ™‚



We still have Mystery Boxes available that will ship August 2, 2012 for the CROPPED MYSTERY CHALLENGE EVENT September 21-23, 2012.Ā  You do not want to miss this Live event or your chance at a great box filled with goodies and all the thousands of dollars in prizes and giveaways!

A Word about Next week!

So I am heading to CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) Trade Show in Chicago where crafting professions and store buyers come to purchase for their stores and learn about new products.Ā  I’ll have a booth there (#1039) and we will be rocking out Paper Layerz, singing Karaoke and all kinds of other crafting funness! I wanted to let you know that Customer Services replies and facebook messages to me will be on a delay response!Ā  I will be posting updates from the show floor best that I can, but if you don’t hear back from me right away it’s difficult to reply and do different things from my iPhone during the show.Ā  We will do our best to get back to everyone as quickly as possible, but i wanted everyone to know I won’t be ignoring you – Just limited with Time and Internet access! šŸ™‚ Thanks for understanding and I’ll see you soon!

    Oh, how I wish I could be there! My goal is to be there at least one time in my life. I live in Sweden so it’s far away… Hope you all have a wonderful time at cha šŸ™‚

    When I try to download the free digital video, Paper Layerz project inspiration. When I go to the menu and click on free and then click on Paper Layerz Project, it takes me to a screen that says “You do not have permission to view this video. What do I need to do? Thanks for your help and I look forward to hearing about CHA.

    Ok. I went for the free download. I got the code. Now how do I get to the library so I can
    view. I could not find a tab or choice that read Library. Any suggestions my friends?
    Love your emails and videos. Thank you.

    Help!! I cannot get the free download. The link leads to the product page in the store and lists the price as $6.99. I try adding it to my cart to see if it would give me the option of the free download and it doesn’t add it to the cart either.

    Liz, Arlene, and Steph:
    I had trouble when I clicked the 2nd link, too. However, if you click the 1st link that says “Free Digital Download”, you should have no problem. Good luck!

    Thanks sooo much for the freebie! I have an E2, but I’ve had trouble learning the machine. I never use it without my Gypsy attached, for this reason. Now, I may make some headway.

    Have a FANTASTIC time at CHA! Now that you have your own booth and products, I don’t know how much exploring you’ll do. But, I look forward to any of the experience you can share! (Even if it’s all from YOUR booth!)

    Took a few tries but for the link I had to login to my ARS account and process as a purchase. The dollar amount comes up as zero. Also watch for a “class” code and write it down because you will go to another screen before the download. The dvd downloads to your library on ARS. I am able to view it on the site. Not sure it will “download” to my computer.
    Thanks Megan šŸ™‚ enjoy the show.

    We have a Giveaway winner!

    It’s Holly Poppell!

    Holly’s number was generated by, which makes her the winner of the Giveaway from Megan’s Thanks and Get Well Party! She will receive over $50 worth of Close To My Heart products from me!!

    Hooray for Holly!!

    But really, in this case everyone who participated in Megan’s party is a winner. Megan got to choose lots of terrific Hostess gifts, everyone received wonderful products from Close To My Heart and some special deals (like Stamparama, Stamp of the Month and Perfect Pairs), but most of all we had the opportunity to show Megan our care, concern and support for her, and help her get through a difficult time in her life. What could be better? šŸ™‚

    I still haven’t done the drawing for a free stamp set for those people who blogged about Megan’s party. I did a search online and saw at least 2 people who blogged about it but didn’t email me so that I would know to enter them into the drawing. Is there anyone else I missed? Please let me know ASAP so that you can get in on the drawing too!
