Bigger paper means bigger BOXES!

Most of you know about my passion for designing boxes.  In fact, making boxes was my main reason for "upgrading" from the Baby Bug to the Expression.  I've really enjoyed being able to cut from 12"x12" paper, but I pretty much shelved the 12"x24" mat unless I was cutting vinyl.  Once I started wanting bigger boxes, I started to buy large sheets of artist's paper and cutting it down to fit on the 12"x24" mat. That meant there was waste, and that stuff isn't cheap, though it does come in some nice textures.  Provocraft makes 12"x24", but as far as I know, it's only available in pads of assorted colors and not individual sheets (available at

Well now somebody has come to the rescue of all the damsels in distress out in Cricut Craft Land.  Couture Cardstock is unveiling its new12"x24" cardstock next week at CHA!!  It will come in 25 totally yummy colors and retail for just $1 per sheet!  Here are some of the colors, but hop on over to their site for a peek at all 25!

Cindy, in order to use your designs, do I need to have the cartridges that you used uploaded to my gypsy??? Have downloaded some of your gypsy files, but they won't cut when I hook the Gypsy to the Cricut. Thanks for keeping us so up to date on all the cricut goodies and creations!

HI CINDY! I just saw that you started following me today and WOW, where have you been all my life!? LOL! I have my Gypsy but hardly use it, so sad, I know! AND then again, I don't hardly use my expression either! UGH!

I am going to start following you and hope you will inspire me to dust these things off! LOL! Thank you so much for helping me find you! Hoosier Hugs, Nicole
