Bracelet cuff with the Chomas Creations precision tip and Cricut Maker

Rainy day fun here today with the Chomas Creations precision tip in the Cricut Maker!  If you want to see a video using Design Space to make a template to line this up easier it is here... https://youtu.be/0c7yFh1DhDc
Want some great news?  You can also do this with your Cricut Explore. :) Just make sure you put it in the right side in place of the blade.
You can find the Chomas Creations tools here...  Chomas Creations

 Notice how I am adding glue dots to help secure this in place.  If you don't there is a good chance it will slide on the mat.

You can change the settings on your materials in the software.  Make sure you are selecting cut in the software as well as choosing a material that requires the fine point blade.

I did do multiple cuts on this. The easiest way is to copy and paste your text on top of each other.

There is a bracelet bending bar kit by ImpressArt that I used for this.  I got it at Joanns here... https://www.joann.com/impressart-bracelet-bending-bar-kit/15081177.html#q=impressart&start=1

Happy 10 year anniversary to Chomas Creations!!!

Guess who is celebrating 10 years of being in business???
That would be me and Chomas Creations!  I had no idea when I sold my first part (actually it ended up being 80 when I said I would make an extra for some one that asked) that I would still be in business 10 years later with this little venture!
Some things have changed a lot over the years!  This is me and my kids 10 years ago, imagine how tough it was working at all with that crew, but I did manage somehow (I just didn't get to sleep much hehe).  My 2 oldest helped pack parts with me at the time.  Ages 15, 11, 5 and 3 (notice my age isn't listed hehe)
This is all of us now, and they are a lot more helpful and my oldest and now 2 youngest still help pack parts!  One of my boys is off at college majoring in psychology!  My oldest daughter has her bachelors in business management.  Ages 25, 21, 15 and 13

That's not the only thing that has changed!  Here are the original mini gel pen and mini Sharpie marker holders that fit in the original Cricut from 10 years ago!
We all know those have changed and now I offer engravers and a precision engraver as well!  And they work in so many more machines!  Even the original Cricut :)
Now let's go into what hasn't changed in the last 10 years!  
All of the Chomas Creations tools are made in the USA!  That will never change.  They are also manufactured by local small businesses.  
Chomas Creations is still a family business.  I would love to keep it going and have my children running it one day, that is a huge dream of mine.  
Customer service is very important to me and I work my hardest to make things right if you are having any issues.
I still love doing what I do and plan on getting into my craft room more and picking up where I left off.
