Today on Cricut Chat, we are putting together some really unique cards called Pop Up Box Cards, which are from Designer Lori Whitlock.

Pop Up Box Cards are a Lori Whitlock specialty and she has dozens of cards in this design.  In fact, she has so many it’s easy to get lost in all the choices.  Thankfully they all go together in much the same way!

Welcome to Cricut Chat!

When the Cricut Joy launched in mid-February, I embarked on what would become an almost daily live video series highlighting the Joy’s many features.  These live videos, which happened on Facebook and were rebroadcast on YouTube, became quite popular, especially during the self isolation of Coronavirus.  After a few more weeks of testing times, we settled on a schedule for the series and a name: Cricut Chat.

Cricut Chat is a daily live video show on Facebook, approximately 30 minutes long, and broadcasting Monday through Friday at 9am.  We will also have a Cricut Date Night program on Saturday nights at 7pm, also on Facebook.  You are welcome to join me and a bunch of other Cricut-crazy folks any day as we learn about all the wonderful things you can do with a Cricut.

Whenever possible, the program will be rebroadcast on YouTube and Facebook.

One area I left out of this programming is my blog.  Since many people still come to visit my blog every day, I have decided to post a weekly summary of what was discussed in Cricut Chat and on Cricut Date Night.

Here are the videos from the first week of Cricut Chat:

Monday: SVG Cuts Umbrella Gift Bag


Tuesday: Lori Whitlock Pen Organizer


Wednesday: “M O M” Trifold Monogram Card from Cricut Design Space


Thursday: SVG Cuts Retro Stove Box Card


Friday: Paper Peonies in three different sizes


Saturday: Dreaming Tree Peony Gift Box
