New Blog Look Vintage Style

I have been trying to update the look of my blog for a while now and finally manage to find something I like. Vintage Made for You has so many gorgeous designs and best of all they are free. If you have been viewing my blog whilst have been testing out the different looks, my apologies, it must have looked like there was a gremlin or two here!

If you don't remember what my blog looked like before the new background was installed here you go...

I am really loving the new design and I am now thinking of changing my header too, so I am working on that to see what I can come up with.

Freebie - Printable Cutting Guide for Cricuts with Personality

Many of us with cricut machines know there are slight differences with the cutting settings on them as they all seem to have their own personalities! Mine can sometimes be different when I insert a new blade too! Sooooo......

I designed this sheet to go in my cricut handbook file to keep track of the different cutting settings I use on my cricut. I always have my handbook file out when I am cutting so it is only natural I keep my cutting guide sheet with it.

I have left room for a small sample of the material to be glued to the page and allowed for some short notes too. This way if you have similar paper/card but a different brand you could use the settings as a starting point without wasting valuable paper making test cuts. In the notes is where I write which blade housing I have used and if the settings have left marks in the mat or torn the material so I can adjust the settings accordingly next time. I also make notes if the cuts are simple or detailed on mine.

Click on the image above or the link below to access the free printable pdf download and leave a comment to let me know what you think. It prints on an A4 page. You can download and print as many pages as you like. PERSONAL USE ONLY THOUGH PLEASE (unless permission obtained first)

Yoga Baby!

SewDelish yoga baby

I just had to share this photo. Our little one is starting to get around and this is something she loves to do.

She looks like she is trying to do the downward dog so we call her our yoga baby!

Have a great day and soon I will be able to show you photos of my newly renovated old sewing machine. I just need to fix up the decals and then I will be finished. So remember to come back so you can see it!
