Super Quick Cricut Disney Gift Bags

I must apologize up front for the poor photo. I literally made these gift bags at the last minute for my team for convention (like right before I went to the airport) and so I didn't get a chance to do a proper photo. I'm sorry!

These bags were super quick!  The bags themselves are from Michaels and could be also used for Pirate party or luncheon, depending on which ones you used in the set.

I cut the large Mickey heads at 4" and the initial parts at 2", all layers and all from the Cricut Mickey Font cartridge.  I made 12 bags in total.

Trust me when I say the project is fast...LOL! Literally - right before I left for the airport...

Close to My Heart has announced the product retirement list for the Spring Summer 2014 catalog. These items are on a "while supplies last" type basis so once things sell out, they are GONE! They will not be available after July 31.

Check out the Close to My Heart Product Retirement Items here!

Below are a few stamp sets that are retiring that are some of my favorites. I am sorry to see these go. But these are not all the stamp sets - there are more here.  Also, paper, inks, chipboard items, the bracket frame and more are retiring!

Count Your Blessings:
Glory to God:
Candyland:
Remarkable Wreath:
There will also be a price increase on some items starting August 1!  Take a look below:
Here is the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month for July - a full alphabet stamp set! Normally, these are $29.95 but this month, it's only $5 with a $50 purchase!  WHOOP!

UPDATE: Cricut Explore Print then Cut Feature News!

This letter appeared on the Cricut Blog yesterday (WHOOP!):

The Cricut Team has been hard at work developing our Print then Cut feature for Cricut Design Space.  This feature will let you easily print then cut the 50,000+ images in the Cricut library in just a few clicks using your Cricut Explore. The new feature will also work with images you import for free such as jpeg’s and svg’s.  Our latest plan is to release this feature in late September, consistent with our back half of 2014 target communicated previously.
We have had several dozen Product Experts from the Cricut Community including Beth Kingston, one of our HSN on-air hosts and design bloggers, trying out the Print then Cut feature as well as a couple of widely requested (by you!) design tools that are included in our next release.  
We are extremely passionate about doing extensive testing on any new product or release.  This commitment is part of what we call the New Cricut.  
Best,

Ashish Arora and the New Cricut Team

Please understand that the Explore will not print itself -you will be doing that with your home printer. The Explore will be able to then cut out what you print on your home printer.  FYI!
