Are You on a Paper Chase?
We've added American Crafts to inventory

Whether you handle lots of paper to solve a problem or to create a greeting card, any paper chase is a time and money waster. Your creative design time deserves a quality cardstock from the get go. To help in that area, we've added American Crafts to our inventory, because they offer some of the best paper. 

Not all of us are able to shop and compare paper products to get the quality we want. Sometimes it's rural living, sometimes it's simply the inconvenience of trekking out, that brings on a need. Whatever your situation, skim our offerings for durable,yet flexible, cardstock. From earth tones to foil to glitter, we've got what you're looking for.

Jasmine Cricut CartridgeJasmine
A Font for Greetings & Tags

We get calls and emails for a cartridge that lends itself to card making or gift tags. The Jasmine Cricut Cartridge may be just the cartridge to fill that need for classic sayings and shapes. It's a pretty, but comfortable script; often described as graceful. Several expressions of thanks and warm wishes are welded together for you. The Jasmine font is designed to easily connect letters that aren't welded, using an adhesive runner or the Cricut Design Studio Software

We've provided a small scrapbook sampling of Jasmine Cricut Cartridge script and numerals. Happy Holidays from Hudson.

Crafting Tip of the Day Tip
Get the Most Use From Your Cutting Mats

- Use the right pressure when cutting; not only will it save your paper, but it preserves the Cricut Cutting Mats. The Cricut A to Z DVD ships with a Cutting Guide for machine setting modes on over 400 cutting mediums.

- Turn your mat around or move the paper to use all portions of it equally. If small paper is relocated away from the usual worn out corner, just reposition your blade to cut at the new location.

- Remove sticky excess or paper shreds from your mat regularly with a lint roller. Also, use a Cricut Scraper and plain baby wipes (no moisturizer or corn starch additives) to lightly clean the surface.

- If you're ready to add new life, but not ready to buy new mats; clean the surface well with inexpensive alcohol. Don't use an abrasive because you want the mat to maintain its smooth surface. After drying, cover with a spray adhesive. Try the Slice Spray Adhesive

- Get the most out of your efforts. When the mat is done...replace it!!
