I had the opportunity to test her Pen Holders and Engraving Tool for the Cricut Explore. I like the ability to use just about any pen or marker in the holders. I’m not worried about breaking the Explore holder by using a pen or marker that does not fit properly. It opens up so many more design options.

I made a very short video showing the engraver tip in action. I’m still testing the machine, reason for the sticker still on the back of the door. LOL


This is what the completed engraving looks like.

I also engraved on some Metal Repair Tape that I purchased from Lowe’s approximately 1-2 years ago, and then cut the shadow layer. The tape is not quite 2 inches in height.

My completed project below. I created it for my mom, I was thinking about coloring the ribbon as well, but then decided not to. I just did the word hope. This image is by Beccy’s Place, I pixel traced the image in Make the Cut and Exported it as an SVG and uploaded it into Design Space. It’s a luminary made from vellum, I used a Martha Stewart punch at the top, added some butterflies for dimension. Download the butterflies.

It’s a very simple looking project and is so pretty in person.

I want to thank Amy for guesting on our show tonight. Be sure to watch my blog, I’ll be posting more projects using Amy’s tools!

Thanks for visiting.
