Tip of the Day!

A friend from one of my scrapbooking clubs had a tip about the Cricut stamp sets and cartridge. Thought I would share with each of you this idea.

Once you get your stamp set from the company find the ones you can use with the Cricut. My example here is the stocking.

Then go to your Cricut catalog and find the matching icon. The stocking in this case.

Then on the stamp sets clear paper next to the cut size take a black marker and write which page it is on.

This will save you time in the future from having to go look it up each time you get the stamp set out.
