Hi, my name is Diane. Welcome to my blog. Please leave comments and subscribe or follow this blog if you like what you see.
I started blogging in February, 2008, shortly after I began using the Cricut Design Studio program. This blog was originally intended to simply serve as an easy way to share my Cricut Design Studio .cut files and tutorials to help others learn to use the Design Studio software. My interests and the items I post on the blog have evolved over time. I post daily on a variety of topics - papercrafting, photography, digital scrapbooking and all sorts of crafty things that I think are interesting and worth sharing.
I have added both a Silhouette SD and a Silhouette Cameo to my crafting tools. I find the freedom to design my own cuts without relying on cartridge shapes very exciting.
I am always happy when I am designing and I find the process of creating a scrapbook page or a card, by using various elements in new and different ways, to be rewarding and relaxing. Over the years, I have done cross stitch, needlepoint and quilting and I find that some of these interests have influenced my designs and paper crafting projects. I hope you enjoy seeing the things I have designed.
