Cricut Cartridge Used: Artiste
All cuts on this layout were created with the Cricut Artiste Cartridge. No other cutting files, gypsy or craft room used. Only what I like to call "straight cricut" meaning only the cartridge and my Expression.

As mentioned above, we will be giving away FREE digital die cutting files, digital printables and vintage graphics. Please note: Each day we will have new files. Be sure to stop by each day as they will be free one day only! Please also note, the free files will have a price listed by them, but when you add them to your cart to check out, they will be free during the day they are posted only. These files have been generously donated by PaperCraftingWorld.com.
