  5. Hey Joy! Now that I finally got into this post, now I have to think…….One thing I’d like to see is if, and/or how, the collage word art cartridge can be used with card stock for a card or layout. Can you use transfer tape or freezer paper somehow to move the words? Ohhh, I just had another thought, maybe flip the image and put adhesive on the words while it is still on the mat? I really like this cartridge, but would like to use it on cards or layouts. Love your blog(s)!

  9. Hi Joy! I’d love to see more about your new Silhouette. A pros and cons post would be great.

  10. beadgal29 says:

    I think I’d like to see you do more posts with your Silhouette. Hubby and I both agree that the freedom the Silhouette allows is somewhat preferable to the Cricut, though I do love my Cricut carts in general.

    I feel like I’m a ninja or something with how sneaky I had to be getting in to this post!!! Very cute idea!

  11. Hi Joy, I just love your newsletter. I would like to see more on the Cricut Imagine and Gypsy

  15. Today is (was I guess) my birthday, I just missed getting to post on my birthday 10/25. I would love to see your football friday post to include my beloved Missouri Tigers – which are coming to the SEC to join forces with your ‘Bama tide and others πŸ™‚ We have so many great pictures of games and tailgating – so scrapbooking them in fun new ways can be a challenge. Also some sort of other crafts that are robust enough to make it in an outdoor tailgating environment would be fun to see! I just love all you do and can’t wait to see what you do next! Mary Jo

    Hi Joy I can’t remember if you have MTC but i would love it if you did some tutorials on it. I have to program for about a year and never have used it. I don’t even know where to start. I need one of those books Called MakeTheCut for Dummies. πŸ™‚

  30. I would love to see you do some jungle themed stuff. I am trying to come up with some fun decorations for the nursery πŸ™‚

  31. You’ve come up with soooooo many good ideas I can’t even start to think of something “new” that you could post about. But I’m still having some issues with the proper settings for the use of vinyl. So that would be a good issue to cover, once again. I just love all the information you provide your readers. Keep up the good work.

    I’ve been trying to get some ideas for an Advent Calendar using my Cricut. I love the one Stampin’ Up has in their Mini Holiday catalog and would love to get the Peekaboo Frames Bigz die. However, I do not have a Big Shot and would like to figure out if there is a way to make those cute Peekaboo Frames with the Cricut. I have some ideas but would love to see what you would come up with. Also, (you may have this already and I just haven’t found it) I would like to see a post/video post comparing the new Silhouette and the Cricut Expression. You do such a great job on the comparison things you do. I love your site!! Keep up the great work!!

  34. Thank you Joy!!! As always I get a lot of my crafting ideas form you. I made my little girls Halloween outfit from your freezer paper idae last year!

SHE WAS SO CUTE!!! Thank you for the insperation and a chance to win!!!

    Hi Super Joy, I would love to see some of your scrapbook ideas in picture frames. I’m not sure if you’ve done it before but it’ll would be a great idea to hang a couple of these frames around the house.

  42. What a fun site, so glad I joined up! I would like to see more ideas on using some of the fabulous printed floral/stripe/ paper that is out there and the best ways to incorporate them into a page layout. Some of the papers in the DCWV pads are so intricate but beautiful and I hate not being able to see some of the pattern. Any ideas? Also, how about a tip or technique of the week winner? Thanks, Claire

  43. I love all the stuff that you do with vinyl. I’ve used it some, but not to the extent that you have! But, everything you do is incredible! You truly are “Super Joy!”
