An Easy Seasonal Frame with Free Classes

Every few months the décor in my home changes to match the season, which is why this Home Sweet Home Frame is one of the first projects on my list in the new year.  We are starting the year off celebrating Papercrafting Month with a brand-new home décor special for all you DIYers!  This easy-to- assemble kit allows you to create an elegant wooden frame with some fanciful, interchangeable elements to help it fit in with your décor throughout the entire year.

Each kit includes a 14″ wooden frame designed to fit a large wooden piece that spells out “HOME” and comes with materials to create a wide variety of accent pieces that fit over the “O” in this “HOME” wood piece. These accents are created using round wooden circles and specialized punch-out die-cuts which are interchangeable attaching to the frame with magnets, making it easy to switch out these accents throughout the year.

The Home Sweet Home Kit is so easy to assemble and simple to update. Take a look at just a few of the options you have for the this frame and kit.

Let’s Talk About Cricut Pens

Cricut Pens are a great find for those who wish to use their Cricut for writing or creating hand-drawn images on their projects. They also work beautifully without Cricut machine and can be used like any other pen.  Today, I am going to spend just a few minutes talking about the Cricut pens that are currently available, how they can be used, and how to load them into the Cricut machine.  

In the video above, I take five minutes to show you the types of pens you can purchase for your Cricut Machine.  Most of the items in my craft space are duel purpose, so I like to use most of my Cricut pens for everyday doodling and drawing also.  There are quite a few pens available on the website right now, and it can be difficult to decide which ones you really need, so let me help you out by telling you what each of these pens is designed for. 


Fine Point Pens

Cricut’s Fine Point Pens are usually a 0.4 tip and can write and draw with any Cricut Explore machines. These pens come in a varity of colors and are water-based, acid-free, nontoxic, and are permanent after dry.  If you have these pens, you will see an “F” at the base of the pen identifying it as a FINE point pen.  

Extra Fine Point Pens

This tips on these pens are exactly as described.  The extra fine point is 0.3 and like the fine point pens they are water-based, acid-free, nontoxic, and permanent after dry. These are some of my favorite for doodling and drawing detailed images. If you have these pens, you will see an “XF” at the base of the pen identifying it as a EXTRA FINE point pen.  

Gel Pens

Gel Pens, Glitter Gel Pens, and Milky Gel Pens all fall under this category.  The Gel pens are a 1.0 that draw with silky-smooth gel ink.  Glitter Gel pens are 0.8 pens with glitter gel and the Milky Gel Pens are 1.0 silky-smooth milky gel ink.  Each one is a little different, and provide you with smooth free flowing lines when you write or draw. If you have these pens, you will see an “G”, “GG” or “MG” at the base of the pen identifying them as a gel pen.

Infusible Ink Pens & Freehand Markers

There are two types of infusible ink pens. The Ink Pens & Markers are designed to use in your Cricut Explore machine to draw images that can be transferred onto your project.  The Freehand markers are made to allow you to use your creative brain to draw onto printer paper, then transfer the image using a heat-press. Both require the use of  infusible ink blanks and an EasyPress.  


These are just a few of the pen types available. When you visit the Cricut website, you will also find Metallics, Calligraphy Pens, Markers, and more, but the ones listed above are the most commonly used in my craft space.  Not only have I used them for writing and drawing with my machine, they also come in handy when I am writing in my scrapbooks and cards. 

Now that you know a little more about these wonderful Cricut accessories, you can go choose the colors you need for your next project.  If you own a Cricut Explore One, you will need to also grab yourself an Accessory Adapter to use the pens.
