New Cricut Video Shows Mix and Match Button

I wanted to make a video showing how to use the Mix & Match button, but not use it with fonts. Why? Just to be difficult. No, just kidding. Because I thought it would be neat to see if you could. I decided to make the card above using Lyrical Letters (LL). Now, I know LL is a font cartridge but it's got tons of goodies in the back of the booklet, like all kinds of word art appropriate for card making! So, I figured out a way to use that Mix & Match button to make it work.

I also thought I should show an EASY way to glitter an intricate die cut using the Xyron machine. WOW! So much easier than the Zig 2-way glue pen. I spent close to an hour fiddling with that glue pen the other day as I glittered the swirly guitar on the Hannah Montana layout and it about drove me crazy. The Xyron is incredibly tacky, even if you make a little mistake along the way. See the video for the "oops" and then see how it all turns out.
