VIDEO – 3×4 Mats for project Life using Cricut Machine

comments 9

Mat 2After posting these pictures of the little filler mats I made using my Cricut a few of you asked how I did it and whether I would show you. Well why not?I haven’t done a new video for quite a while and this is the first one I have done on my new machine.

Photo Mat 1I think these mats are quite cute and could easily be done in all sorts of colours, patterns and materials suitable for a die cutter. You could just leave them as a filler card, back them with coloured card stock like this one on the right, put a photo behind them and much more. So without further babble below is the video.  PS. Just so you know it’s about 12 minutes in length so it may be a good time to grab a cuppa or a cool drink and sit back and relax.

    What an awesome tutorial! I’ve made something similar with my Cameo. Also, I’ve just scanned a few of the lace paper sheets from ol’ KI Memories… Fun!

    • Thanks so much Kate.
      Not sure about “awesome” but hopefully it helps a few 🙂
      Yes I think it would easily be done on other machines too.
      Thanks For Dropping In

    • Hi Trish,
      You won’t believe how happy this comment makes me. It makes the 2+ hours wait to upload the video well worth it because, I’m hearing from lovely people like you and hearing that maybe there is some life in the old Cricut machine yet.
      Thanks For Dropping In

    Thanks so much for the video and sending me the link to watch it! I am soooo excited about the Craft Room. I will be using my expression much more now…

  3. That is so helpful. I will be dusting off my Cricut expression to help with my latest passion – Project Life. Thanks
